Bipartisan Bill Introduced to Push Biden on Border Crisis
A bipartisan bill has just been introduced in Congress to take action on the crisis at the border. Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) introduced legislation aimed at addressing a surge of migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border. This bill seeks to authorize resources to address surge capacities and essentially reinstate former President Trump’s policy on asylum. This bipartisan legislation comes after both Senators sent a letter to President Biden urging him to use his “full authorities” to respond to a surge of migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Where have President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris been when terrorists, drugs, and human traffickers are coming across our border in huge numbers every single day?
Arizona Governor Doug Ducey commented about how the Administration is failing to respond to the border crisis, something he knows first hand:
We’ve had no interaction with the Vice President or the President, we have had a conversation with Secretary Mayorkas and what he’s going to see is a crisis and an emergency that needs action from the federal government. And they need to start responding to the border governors, to our requests. We need resources for the National Guard. They need to change the communication to the nation of Mexico. The Biden administration has been anti-wall and AWOL. They’re absent without leave. We need support on the Southern border.
While the Biden Administration is not taking any action to protect our borders, they are focused on reentering the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran. We have to learn from our mistakes and put the interest of the American people first. With tensions already rising between the United States and Iran, an Iranian news agency released a new video that shows it flew a drone over a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier.
ACLJ Senior Advisor for National Security and Foreign policy Ric Grenell explained the dangers of reentering this deal:
It’s really important that we recognize what this is. We can talk about this because now a video is out. Make no mistake this is the tip of the iceberg and we must react. We must realize that the Iranian Regime hates America, and they hate Israel. The idea that they will somehow be honest about their centrifuges, or the number of centrifuges, or their percentage of enrichment is laughable. The Israelis have already proven through finding a locker full of information that the original JCPOA deal was built on a lie, that the Iranians hoodwinked the Americans and the Europeans. So, the idea that we are going to sit back down and trust them is laughable. We have to learn from our mistakes.
In regard to the conditions getting worse at the border, Congressman Chip Roy (TX-21) said cartels have taken operational control over the southern border. He explains:
Cartels have operational control of our border. Period. Anybody who’s following it knows that. Tamaulipas, the state right across the border from Texas is run by the dangerous cartels, the Reynosa faction of the Gulf Cartel del Noreste of Los Zetas. They are using human beings as shields for profit. They’re moving people into Texas, into our communities, into San Antonio, which I represent. We’ve stopped vehicles with human beings that are being sent to stash houses in Houston to be used for profit and human trafficking and sex trafficking.
How can you deny this is a humanitarian crisis when it’s impacting all 50 states? As we’ve told you, the Biden Administration’s willful refusal to address the crisis at the border has put the safety of Americans in jeopardy, and the lives of innocent women and children being preyed upon by traffickers. Eventually, they are going to have to deal with this issue. We are witnessing selective indignation and hypocrisy on steroids. There is a moral duty for the Administration to gain operational control and take action.
