FLASHBACK: 'Completely Absent’: Arizona Law Enforcement Leaders Slam Mark Kelly

Top Arizona law enforcement officials say Sen. Mark Kelly (D., Ariz.) is "completely absent" on public safety and border security, a situation that one police representative says "scares the hell" out of his officers.

Kelly has repeatedly criticized President Joe Biden's lack of urgency on the southern border crisis as a record number of illegal immigrants attempt to cross into the country. For National Border Patrol Council president Brandon Judd and Arizona Police Association president Justin Harris, however, Kelly has failed to match his rhetoric with action. Both Judd and Harris said Kelly has never reached out to their respective organizations, a snub that Judd called "concerning."

"It appears that he'll give lip service to a topic, but then when push comes to shove, he's right in step with his party. And we know that as far as his party goes with border security, they're missing in action," Judd told the Washington Free Beacon. "He's never reached out to us, and that is what's concerning, because we have people reaching out to us all the time on both sides of the aisle."
