South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has unabashedly vowed to reject illegal immigrants who want to relocate to her state, essentially declaring it a sanctuary for U.S. citizens.
Rather than obliging the Biden administration’s policy to let noncitizens flood the border and go anywhere they choose, Noem said her message to illegal immigrants is simply “call me when you’re an American,” in a swift rejection of migrant relocation efforts.
“South Dakota won’t be taking any illegal immigrants that the Biden Administration wants to relocate,” the governor tweeted on Wednesday. “My message to illegal immigrants… call me when you’re an American.”

With this message that is strongly resonating with Americans everywhere, Noem is taking a stand for legal U.S. citizens still suffering negative consequences from government-imposed pandemic lockdowns.
Americans are currently bearing the brunt of a lockdown-stricken economy, resulting in less job availability, increasing inflation, and surging gas prices. The last thing Americans need right now is a presidency that puts the interests of illegal aliens before their own.
Meanwhile, President Biden is doing absolutely nothing to stop tens of thousands of illegal immigrants from flooding our Southern border.
Instead, upon migrants’ entry into the United States, Biden officials are giving them complimentary plane tickets and cash to relocate to any city of their choosing.
Supposedly leading the charge on addressing the border crisis is Vice President Kamala Harris, who has thus far done nothing to deal with the problem. However, she is casually thinking about taking a trip to Central America to lead talks with leaders about why people are leaving.
While the Biden administration takes their time to ultimately accomplish nothing on this issue, the crisis only worsens under their watch.
No state should reward the Biden administration by enabling their complete disregard for this country’s 330 million citizens and its esteemed rule of law. Hopefully, the Mount Rushmore State’s decision to defend American citizens will inspire other states to do the same.
