Times Square Billboard: If Cops Aren’t Safe Because of Open Borders, Nobody Is

Washington, D.C. (February 22, 2024)—Today, the Job Creators Network (JCN) put up a billboard in Times Square calling out the Biden administration for failing to secure the southern border. The billboard features video of NYPD officers being beaten by a group of migrants in January. The horrific incident emphasizes how deteriorating conditions on the southern border are impacting Americans across the country—including small businesses.

The billboard is headlined, “Hey Joe! If cops aren’t safe because of your open borders, nobody is.” It then drives the public to where visitors can sign a petition calling on the Biden administration to act.

Alfredo Ortiz, Chief Executive Officer of the Job Creators Network, released the following statement:

“The Biden administration has allowed the southern border to descend into chaos that is now affecting the entire country. Notably, Main Street is facing elevated crime that is increasing operating costs for nearly one-third of brick-and-mortar small businesses, according to our latest polling. It’s also having a chilling effect on consumer foot traffic. President Biden needs to stop playing political games with the southern border. The administration already has the authority and resources it needs to act.”
