Three Democratic Senators Turn Backs On Biden Admin Due To Failure To Address Border Crisis

OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Three Senators have turned against Biden in response to his failure to resolve the Border Crisis issue and all three are Democrats, according to The Western Journal.

Joe Biden addressed Congress last Wednesday and in response, Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly said, “While I share President Biden’s urgency in fixing our broken immigration system, what I didn’t hear tonight was a plan to address the immediate crisis at the border, and I will continue holding this administration accountable to deliver the resources and staffing necessary for a humane, orderly process as we work to improve border security, support local economies, and fix our immigration system.”

Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s office said, “Sen. Sinema has been clear that she – along with Sen. Kelly – wants to see more action from the administration to address the border crisis and support Arizona border communities. She’s spoken directly with administration officials on this.”

Democrats have admitted that the BidenAdministration need to adjust regarding its response to the border crisis.

Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono was asked if she thought VP Harris should visit the border.Hirono said, ” Of course.”

“I don’t know. Maybe — We have a few other things to deal with, like the pandemic and everything else, so I’m not going to point fingers at her in the sense of — I hope that she will go down to the border,” answered Hirono. “I hope that we can have a comprehensive, ‘whole of government’ approach to what we need to do to have a humane immigration system.”

“I think the president calls it a crisis. I would call it a crisis,” Hirono stated.

“We can call it a challenge. But we know what the factors are.”

“We know what is happening. So whatever you call it, we’re going to need to deal with it.”

“We’re going to need to address it in a humane way.”

Biden said his administration “inherited one godawful mess at the border,” and pointed the finger at Trump saying that The Biden Administration is experiencing issues due to the “failure to have a real transition ….”

Bidens aid, “The two departments that didn’t give us access to virtually anything [during the transition] were the immigration and the Defense Department.”

“So we didn’t find out they had fired a whole lot of people, that they were understaffed considerably.”

Craig Melvin brought up the fact that in April, 170,000 people have been caught at the border and 22,000 unaccompanied minors are currently in the U.S. “That’s a record. That sounds to most folks like a crisis.”

Biden responded, “Well look, it’s way down now. We’ve now gotten control.”

“For example, they didn’t plan for – it comes every year – this flow … they didn’t have the beds that were available.”

“They didn’t plan for the overflow. They didn’t plan for the Department of Health and Human Services to have places to take the kids …”

From The Western Journal:

I think even most Democrats would have trouble buying that as an excuse.

Melvin pointed out that in April, 170,000 people had been apprehended at the border and that 22,000 unaccompanied minors are currently in the U.S. “That’s a record. That sounds to most folks like a crisis.”

That’s a lot of Trump-blaming, even for Biden.

Here’s the reason tens of thousands of illegal immigrants have flocked to our southern border, Mr. President. You invited them. In fact, this was a central issue in your campaign. Your formal invitation can be found on your campaign website and it’s called “The Biden Plan for Securing our Values as a Nation of Immigrants.”

One of the Biden administration’s first moves was to end former President Donald Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy and to resurrect the dangerous and foolish Obama-era policy of “catch and release.” Advertising that asylum seekers would be released into the U.S. after they’d been processed at the border to await their court dates was akin to putting up a large flashing neon invitation: “Come on over!”

No matter how hard Biden and his backers try to spin it, Americans know Trump had the border situation under control by the end of his term. All Biden had to do was maintain the policies that were in place.

What no one is saying is that importing large numbers of illegals into the country is all part of the Democrats’ strategy. At the current pace, approximately 2 million illegal immigrants will enter the country this year. One day, the party hopes each one of them will be able to vote in U.S. elections.

It’s unclear how many illegal aliens are currently living in the U.S., but estimates have run from 11 to up to almost 30 million.

A voting bloc of that size would be more than enough to sway an election. And Democrats, by providing food, shelter and medical care to this group, all paid for by U.S. taxpayers, hope to keep this group dependent on them. If it all works out as planned, Democrats will maintain their hold on power for generations to come.

And that would make the border crisis look like the country’s good old days.
