The border crisis has been getting so unbelievable these days that even the Democrats have joined in to plead with VP Kamala Harris and get her to visit the border. After months of being in office, neither Biden nor Harris have bothered to go to the border and see the damage they’ve done. VP Harris was even tapped as ‘Border Czar’ by Biden and hasn’t gone to access the damage, which means that she’s just not concerned with what’s going on.
Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar recently called on President Biden and VP Harris to visit the southern border and see the spike in border crossings and illegal immigration. He said that many sheriffs, mayors, judges, and business leaders have expressed their concerns about migrants coming in large numbers. Even Hispanic-American communities have noted concerns and that they do not like what they are seeing.
“Landowners are concerned, local sheriffs are concerned, local police are concerned. Somebody needs to listen to our local communities. With all due respect, just coming in and doing a staged visit is not enough. They have to understand,” Cuellar said.
The “staged visit” was in reference to Harris’s trip to South America, which she claimed was to address the “root issues” of migration.
Rep. Cuellar wrote a letter to Biden and Harris requesting that they visit the Southern border to observe the “ongoing humanitarian crisis” and share the perspectives of Americans who live and deal with it on a daily basis. He said that the rapid number of migrants crossing the border has placed extreme burdens on the communities, especially after following the COVID-19 pandemic. Communities and cities are still dealing with economic hardships and travel restrictions.
Rep. Cuellar said that the situation on the border will “only worsen” as more migrants arrive and that the Biden Administration needs to take a proactive approach to relieve everyday Americans of illegal immigration.
“I have lived here my entire life and want to offer myself as a resource in solving these problems. I believe it is critical that you meet with local stakeholders and residents, consider their concerns, and use their lived experiences to implement more effective policies,” the letter reads.
Republican Rep. Darrell Issa has also invited Harris to visit the Southern Border and said that “anybody will see” that the policies implemented by Biden in his first 100 days of the administration need to be reversed unless you want open borders.
President Biden dismantled some of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, including his “Remain in Mexico” program and asylum agreements made with El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. He is also allowing unaccompanied migrants to remain in the United States following the 2019 migration crisis.
Former acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf even warned the Biden Administration that reversing some of the Trump Administration policies would cause problems at the border. He even showed Biden officials data last year that migration trends were increasing in September and October, right before the election. He said that the Biden Administration has made it clear that there is “no consequence” anymore for illegal border crossings and that the administration is treating it as a capacity issue and not an illegal behavior issue. “That’s a fundamental difference,” he said.
But President Biden refuses to answer any off-the-script questions about illegal immigration and Harris just laughs and makes jokes about why she hasn’t been to the border yet. The Biden-Harris Administration’s border policies are a complete failure of billions of tax dollars, but they refuse to address the border crisis. Why? If they address it, the far left will turn on them…again. All they want is open borders.
