Sen. Cotton Shreds The Biden Admin For Relocating Migrants ‘In The Dead Of Night’
Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton recently stated that he believes the Biden administration is attempting to hide the consequences of its “open border policy” by flying migrants, most of them underage, around the country “in the dead of night.”
The Republican senator ripped into the administration after the New York Post published a scathing report detailing how these minor migrants are being flown out of Texas and being transported to the suburbs in New York in an attempt to resettle them in that part of the nation.
“The obvious reason why they’re flying these migrants across the country in the dead of night is because they don’t want to reveal the consequences of their open borders policy,” Cotton stated during a recent interview conducted by the Fox News Channel.
“Look, if they were proud of their policy, if they thought it was a political winner for them, they’d be having these flights in the middle of the daytime, they’d be coordinating it with the local TV station, they’d be celebrating what they view as a great accomplishment,” he stated.
“But they know that [President] Joe Biden’s open-border policy is a political disaster. So, they’re trying to hide the consequences of that policy in the dark night,” the senator went on to add.
Charter flights, emanating from a southern border overwhelmed by migrants, have been arriving in the New York area since at least August, the Post reported Monday.
Some of the passengers were seen meeting up with relatives or sponsors in New Jersey, or being dropped off at a residential facility on Long Island, the Post said.
Migrants also have been transported to other parts of the country, where, Cotton says, the results will lead to the straining of law enforcement, local hospitals, school systems, and housing.
“This is the moral catastrophe of Joe Biden’s immigration policy,” Cotton told reporters for Fox News on Tuesday. “They act like it’s some great moral victory when in reality it’s creating incentives for very dangerous and immoral behavior.
“All these migrants should not be in Texas, or Florida, or New York. They should be in Mexico because President Biden should have kept the Remain in Mexico policy in place to make sure people aren’t entering the country with bogus claims of asylum,” the senator added.
Cotton then stated that President Joe Biden is just trying to make progressives happy with his relocation of migrants, despite the clearly established truth that most Americans are totally against the policy.
“It’s very hurtful for President Biden politically but it’s a catastrophe for our country,” the senator went on to say in conclusion.”We’re going to be close to 2 million migrants crossing our border very soon. Texas is a big [state] with a lot of great people but not even Texas can keep 2 million new residents there.”
