March 3 2023, CD2 Congressman Eli Crane talks about the Border Crisis and Cartel Corruption

Brian Sussman talks with Congressman Eli Crane about his visit on Feb 27, alongside fellow members of the Homeland Security Committee, to the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, TX. The delegation saw, firsthand, the challenges our Border Patrol officers face in the El Paso Sector. During the visit, members witnessed a drug bust in real time, highlighting the severe drug trafficking issue plaguing our nation and the failure of the Biden Administration to disincentivize smugglers. Congressman Crane also discusses the corruption of the Cartels in Arizona.


Born and raised in Arizona, Eli Crane has the privilege of serving as the U.S. Representative for Arizona’s Second Congressional District.

A week after the September 11th attacks, Rep. Crane left college during his senior year at the University of Arizona to enlist in the U.S. Navy. During his 13 years in military service, he participated in five wartime deployments – serving three with SEAL Team 3.

In 2012, Rep. Crane and his wife Jen co-founded a veteran-owned and operated small business that manufactures bottle openers made from shell casings. A venture that started in their garage, the business eventually grew to employ dozens and led to a successfully negotiated deal that was televised nationally. They sold the company in 2022.

Eli and Jen live in Arizona with their two daughters, Makenzie and Kennedy.
