Super Bowl LVII is currently scheduled to take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. For one politician, it won’t happen if things do not go her way.
Kari Lake, the Republican nominee for governor of Arizona, wants to implement a new policy regarding immigration where those migrants would be confronted with United States military troops.
She is so serious about her policy that she is threatening to shut down Super Bowl LVII if the NFL doesn’t agree with her policies.
“You want to tell me, that a bunch of football teams, owned by billionaires, are okay with fentanyl pouring across our border at a record level, killing our young people? The No. 1 killer is fentanyl. 18-45. It’s killing a generation of people. If the NFL is okay with that, then they need to do some soul-searching,” Lake said. “I don’t think the NFL is that stupid, I really don’t. But, I’m not going to be taking marching orders from the NFL. I’m taking marching orders from the people of Arizona who are tired of their children getting their hands on the most deadly drug this country has ever seen.”
Lake will run against Democratic nominee Katie Hobbs.
The 2022 midterm elections are set for Nov. 8th.
