Navy SEAL Eli Crane Vows to Fight for Strong Borders, Freedom: ‘Service Doesn’t End When You Take Off the Uniform’

Breitbart News – Sean Moran – July 25th, 2021

The Arizona Republican said he felt compelled to run for office to help secure his and Arizonans’ freedoms and liberties. He joined the Navy after the September 11th terrorist attacks.

“I have children. I love people. I love America. I love Americans, and I want to make sure that the next generation gets an opportunity to enjoy the American dream and the freedom and liberties that we have,” Crane told Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle.

Crane said he did five deployments, including serving on the USS Gettysburg and in SEAL Team Three. The Arizona conservative said Americans need to keep fighting for their freedoms.

“Service doesn’t end when you take off the uniform. I swore an oath… the biggest threat to this country, unfortunately, is right here within. And if we don’t get freedom-loving patriots into this fight from the bottom up, I’m afraid we’re going to lose it,” he said.

Crane attacked President Joe Biden’s loose immigration policies, which led to a surge of migrants crossing the border less than seven months during Biden’s administration.

“It’s a massive failure of this administration to roll out the red carpet and just basically stop all of the border policies that we have and let people flood into this country without being vetted or checked,” Crane said.
