STATEMENT FROM ERIE COUNTY REPUBLICAN CHAIRMAN MICHAEL KRACKER 

 

Buffalo, NY—Erie County Republican Committee Chairman Michael Kracker released the following statement in response to County Executive Mark Polocnarz visiting the southern border:

“Mark Poloncarz’s junket to the southern border isn’t leadership; it is political theatre worthy of Hollywood. Mark is taking selfie videos denying the chaos at the southern border just days after hundreds of migrants broke through a razor wire barrier and charged border agents in El Paso as they attempted to enter our country illegally.

The sad reality is Mark didn’t need to go to Texas to see the impact of the border crisis. He could have gone to Cheektowaga where the crisis he created – which resulted in multiple sex crimes, violent assaults, robberies, and more – still exists.

One would hope that after this visit, Mark would call on President Biden to rescind his failed executive orders and demand the immediate repeal of New York’s sanctuary policies. Sadly, Poloncarz will likely use this taxpayer-funded getaway as an opportunity to act morally superior to his constituents who are demanding an end to this border crisis.”
