Kristi Noem, the Governor of South Dakota told “Fox & Friends” hosts on Tuesday that the administration under President Joe Biden is not just “destroying our border” but is doing this “on purpose” with the objective to “remake America” by ending Title 42 and flooding the U.S. with illegal immigrants.

Governor Noem told hosts Rachel Campos-Duffy, Griff Jenkins, and Joey Jones that while the efforts of her colleague, Texas Governor Greg Abbott are laudable and that Abbott is “doing what he needs to do,” state governors are not tasked with securing the border.

“It’s not a governor’s job,” she began according to Breitbart. “It’s the federal government’s job to secure our border. Greg Abbott is doing what he needs to do down there, spending billions of dollars a year to secure the border because of the failure of the Biden Administration. So, you talk about them building a tent down there on the border. I think that that is just showing the agenda that the federal government has.”

Then Noem dropped her bombshell:

“This isn’t unexpected. This isn’t something that they didn’t foresee happening. This is on purpose.”

“This is on purpose that they are destroying our border because they want to remake this country into something that is not built on the trust that our Founders gave people themselves,” she added. “Listen, personal responsibility was something that our Founders wanted to give to the people of this country. They wanted them to be able to defend themselves, to make choices for their families, to be able to have liberty and freedom. They didn’t envision what Joe Biden wants for this country.”

Noem concluded, “The Biden administration is doing this on purpose. I think it’s time that the American people, whether you are Republican, Democrat, Independent or not even political that you, recognize that what this president is doing is trying to remake America.”
