GOSAR: Tanks Sent to Ukraine Belong on Southern Border, ‘Where America Is Being Invaded’

“My constituents are in Arizona, not Ukraine.”

Rep. Paul Gosar has called for tanks to be sent to the southern border “where America is being invaded,” rather than to Ukraine.

Gosar made the statement following the American and German governments’ decision to follow the footsteps of the UK and eventually send dozens of tanks to Ukraine to help fight against Russian troops in the country. The United States is set to send 31 M1 Abrams tanks, potentially over the course of years, with Germany agreeing to send 14 Leopard 2 A6s in the more immediate term.

Gosar slammed the decision to send tanks to Ukraine, arguing that those tanks instead “belong on our southern border, where America is being invaded.” Gosar tweeted this constituents “are in Arizona, not Ukraine” and “The only invasion that I am concerned with is the invasion on our southern border.”

In December, the US Border Patrol reported 16,000 migrant encounters at the southern border in 48 hours, with El Paso seeing the single biggest group crossing ever. Multiple gang members, murderers, and sex offenders, were in the wave that made the crossing.

Last week, 45th President Donald Trump had also warned against the West escalating the conflict in Ukraine by sending tanks. “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES,” Trump said in a statement posted to Truth Social on Thursday morning. “Get this crazy war ended, NOW!” he added. “So easy to do!”

The America First congressman stood firmly by the messaging of the former President.

“We need peace between Ukraine and Russia, not more American equipment, tanks, and endless blank checks to Ukraine. This war needs to be resolved. America should be a peace maker, not a  war monger,” Gosar said. “The biggest threat to everyday Americans isn’t Russia. It’s the American politicians trying to pull us into a war with Russia.”

Former Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake enthusiastically endorsed Gosar’s message on Twitter. Last year, Lake said that if she was elected as Arizona governor, she would formally declare that the state was being invaded on the southern border, enabling an activation of the National Guard to tackle the crisis.

In August, Gosar, who was joined by fellow Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Thomas Massie, called for an immediate moratorium on foreign aid, as the Biden administration continued to send billions of dollars to Ukraine. “Other countries are shamelessly looting our own? Turn off the money spigot,” Gosar said.

      Not only about time, but load our tanks with machine guns ready to fire. Time to protect us from these criminal invaders. Oar nation is being destroyed by these illegals who offer nothing but crime while expecting us to support them from cradle to coffin.

    I want all of the people complaining about helping Ukraine to understand that the Red Menace never went away. While Americans have wallowed in pleasure and degeneracy, the Reds have been planning their comeback. When they are not opposed, they are incentivized to conquest. Remember Korea & Vietnam? Two wars that Americans lacked the will to win? I personally know women and children who have been shelled by the Russians in Ukraine. If your complaint is about corruption, then start in Washington. China is watching very closely. We are not immune to an attack from a near peer enemy. If we were unable to defeat primitives in Afghanistan, what do you think will happen if we have a full scale war with actual armies? Do you think that the high heel brigade will stop the Red Chinese? Sensitivity training & diversity to combat the hardened Russian soldier? We are getting off cheap by sending the weapons to those who will actually fight.

    Also, the Globalist Only Party are full of it. They did nothing when they were in charge and are largely owned by the WEF and Chamber of Commerce. Globalists & Communists are about all we have claiming to represent us in Washington.

      Roy, You are right and Biden is trying to make it so we can’t defend ourselves. The Chinese already own him and his son, they need to be hung for TREASON. Very EVIL and here Biden had threatened President Reagan when he was President. Reagan’s son told about it just a few days ago.

    It is time that all the politicians in DC understand who they work for, and this congressman knows that,to bad the establishment politicians won’t help. This man will be called every name in the book for saying what needed to be said. The southern border is a border, it too must be secured and defended.

    The Ukraine has been robbing the American taxpayers since this stupid scrimmage started, no it’s not the people it’s the government. The people need to get out and then get rid of the trash! Zelensky and his Nazi buddies should be taken out by the Ukrainian people so the war stops and rebuilding can begin. More money & weapons from the U.S. has to stop, eventually Russia will have to retaliate against our retarded government and like the Ukraine it will be the people not Government that suffers from war. NOTHING this illegitimate administration has done has been good for Americans, NOTHING…

    OUR own boarder is being invaded but Perv Biden and the socialist democrats continue to do nothing about it . They’ll protect other countries and THEIR boarder while allowing , murderers, rapist , terrorists, child rapist , drugs , drug dealers, , kidnappers etc. , to walk right in our own country . Then on taxpayers money give them housing , food, money , phones , medical care , dental care , clothes etc.etc. It’s past time for the ARMED National Guard or OUR military to start protecting OUR own boarder !!!!!

    Gosar is just as much as a Buffoon as Trump. Tanks to the Southern Border? A better idea would be to finish the border fence once and for all. Simple solution to stopping the illegal invasion on the Southern Border Half the problem is Mexico for allowing the illegals to travel through Mexico’s Southern Border on their way to the U.S. Mexico has no intention of stopping the illegals. Here is the deal. The U.S. calls in the Mexican Ambassador, One tells the Mexican Ambassador either they stop the illegals at their Sothern Border, or the U.S. Suspends the NAFTA Trade agreement, or the U.S. raises the duty of goods being exported to the U.S. from Mexico by 100% or Ameria embargos all goods from Mexico. The U.S. Automakers have a problem with this, then move their work back to the U.S. Want to see how fast Mexico gets their act together?
