BISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Doug Burgum issued the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address tonight  

“If the president truly wants immigration reform, it needs to start with immediately fixing the crisis at the southern border using the tools available to him,” Burgum said. “Waiting for Congress to fix the problem will only embolden the millions of migrants entering our country illegally and the violent cartels trafficking deadly drugs like fentanyl across the border – putting our national security at risk. The Biden administration’s misguided policies continue to weaken U.S. energy security and our economy. We should be embracing innovation over regulation and selling energy to our friends and allies, not buying it from our adversaries. And unity won’t come from the federal government injecting itself further into issues that are best left to the states to decide. We will continue to defend states’ rights and our freedoms from federal overreach, showing that America is at its best when we empower our citizens and get government out of the way.”
