House Minority Whip Steve Scalise tore into President Joe Biden on Tuesday, stating that the current commander-in-chief knows there’s an immigration crisis at the southern border but “thinks by staying away from it, by hiding out, that the problem will go away.”
“It’s getting worse because of President Biden’s policies,” Scalise said during an interview on Fox Business’ “Mornings With Maria.” “What President [Donald] Trump was doing was working. Biden may not like President Trump, but if his policy was working, at least continue on with that.”
Biden can still reverse his own policies by executive order, and stop the humanitarian crisis that is happening with children arriving unaccompanied at the nation’s border.
“They’re overwhelming communities along the border, and it seems like he doesn’t care about their plight because he’s carrying out socialist agenda that the left wants,” Scalise went on to say. “This isn’t some social experiment. This is having a devastating impact on these young children coming across without parents in many cases, left to just be fending for themselves after being exploited in many cases along the journey, the 20-plus-day journey for some of them.”
Even though the Biden administration continues to refuse to call the border situation a crisis, Scalise said that’s exactly what it is due to the president.
“He went on day one, stopped building the wall, ordered that they stop construction on the wall that was going on and it actually costs more money to stop executing those contracts,” the House Minority Whip said. “That wall that President Trump had put in place had been successful at securing our border.
“What President Biden did is put the open sign at America’s border and they’re coming in by the thousands every day,” he said.
Scalise noted that Jeh Johnson, who was Department of Homeland Security secretary under former President Barack Obama, said if he saw more than 1,000 crossings in one day illegally, it was a “serious problem.” Now, between 3,000 and 4,000 immigrants are coming daily.
“This is a major humanitarian crisis,” Scalise stated. “The young kids that are pulled across the border, many are brought across by cartels, by these coyotes who are paid money, many sexually exploiting the young women coming across.”
Yes, it is indeed a crisis. And yes it is one of Biden’s own creation. But it seems clear that this is part of an overall strategy by the Democratic Party to inflate voter rolls with illegal immigrants.
By working to bring these folks over, they set them up to get hooked on free stuff and turn them into leftist voters that will ensure they have enough votes to stay in power.
It’s sneaky, dirty, and underhanded. In other words, it’s Democrat.
