Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. [R-KS], better known as Doc Marshall, says “every state has now become a border state” when it comes to the unprecedented surge of illegal immigrants. The Biden administration’s open border policy allows drug traffickers to infiltrate the migrants, allowing them to flood the country with deadly fentanyl. As a result, “almost every day, 200 Americans are dying from fentanyl poisoning” he told Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens, during an interview on her Better for America podcast.
Weber’s interview with Doc Marshall covered a wide range of topics from open borders to abortion, politics, safer schools, and the rising price of gasoline.
As regards the open border issue, he expressed his concern that in addition to making it easier for the Mexican drug cartels to peddle their deadly wares, it is also making it easier for terrorists to infiltrate our country.
Senator Marshall is a physician — an OB/GYN who has delivered more than 5,000 babies in his lifetime. To say, he is pro-life is an understatement. During his interview with Weber, he told her that he “had the privilege of delivering a baby almost every day of my life for 30 years, and I could have never imagined I’d be fighting harder on the Senate floor to protect babies. And the Democrats don’t just want an abortion. They want abortion on demand. They want abortion up till the second before the baby is born as well.”
Doc Marshall went on to opine that the Supreme Court’s likely decision to upend the 50-year-old Roe vs Wade ruling that makes it okay to kill unborn babies will “push this issue back to the state level.” There, he said, is “where local elected officials can then make determinations that will help protect both the life of the mom as well as the baby.”
Meanwhile, he added, progressive Democrats want to allow women to get prescriptions for abortion pills using virtually anonymous telemedicine visits. Over-the-phone medical visits are unsafe, he said, and could cause “hypotensive hemorrhaging” and because these pills are not so effective later in pregnancy, they can cause birth defects.
Marshall believes that issues such as abortion may be having a negative impact on the Democratic Party. He noted that “Hispanics are now supporting the majority of Republican candidates because their values are not consistent with the White House and the radical Democrat Party’s values. And whether it’s the life issue, the sanctity of life, or protecting our God-given constitutional rights, I think that there is an awakening occurring.”
The issue of safer schools for our children is getting new attention as the result of the Uvalde, TX elementary school shooting that left 19 young students and two of their teachers dead. Doc Marshall offered advice to protect schools in the future. He noted that there is $150 billion of unused COVID relief money that can be used to make our schools safer. “I want to give the schools the flexibility to make their schools safer. Many schools have taken the first step. They’ve closed all the entrances, except for one. But we need to add layers of defense so that we could add audio-visual cameras for the front. We could add panic buttons. We could make each room safer and more secure. How about providing money for a safety officer? How about a mental health nurse?”
On the issue of skyrocketing gas prices due to the Biden inflation spiral, he told Weber that he had the opportunity to ask Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm if the administration should take responsibility for the price of gasoline. Her response, Marshall said, was an emphatic no. That was no surprise but it’s a critical issue that, according to the Senator, will make people “get out and vote…we’re going to have to flip the House and Senate [in November] and try to hold the administration back until the cavalry comes to take the White House in 2024.”
