Texas Democrat Pleads With Biden to Change Course on Border Restrictions


It simply cannot be overstated just how much damage Joe Biden and his administration are doing to America due to their failures to address the current immigration crisis.

Biden has ignored the southern border, while Kamala Harris has downright lied about it.

This administration is attempting to distract Americans by turning them against their neighbors due to fear of Covid, while simultaneously allowing tens of thousands of illegal migrants free entry to the country without vetting them for Covid or other contagious diseases.

While most republicans have have voiced their opposition to Biden’s immigration failures, more and more democrats are also coming around.

Add to that list Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar.

Cueller is teaming up with Lindsey Graham in a desperate attempt to get the Biden Administration to address the current crisis. 

He has personally pleaded with Biden to take action before it’s too late.

Our friends at Newsmax have more on Cuellar and Graham's insistance that Biden allocate "sufficient federal resources" to the southern border:

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, have asked President Joe Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to appoint a person charged with ensuring "sufficient federal resources" are allocated at the southern border.

In a bipartisan letter written "with a sense of urgency" on Friday, Graham and Cuellar said the surge of migrants and the increasing threat of the COVID-19 Delta variant require federal help to assist "overburdened U.S. border communities."

"We request that you immediately create a special executive position vested with the authority to implement federal policies which prioritize the health and safety of U.S. communities at the southern border," Graham and Cuellar said in the letter.

The two lawmakers suggested former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson for the recommended position.

"[Johnson] carries an exceptional bipartisan reputation for pragmatic approaches to complex border security and immigration challenges," the letter read.

"In 2014, he coordinated a thoughtful U.S. response to a migration influx event and prioritized certain eligible cases for immediate removal. He also established innovative public health protocols which minimized risks to Americans from foreign travelers during the largest Ebola epidemic in history.

"We strongly support the appointment of someone with the unique credentials of former Secretary Johnson to this position."

According to Cuellar, "Something has to change."

USA Today has more:

A bipartisan pair of lawmakers are calling on President Joe Biden to appoint a “border czar” as the United States continues to see a large number of migrants coming to the U.S.-Mexico border.

Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Democrat whose district is along the United States’ southern border in Texas, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Friday they would like Biden to appoint former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to the position.

During a press briefing Friday, Cuellar said that the Biden administration needs to listen to border communities and border patrol officials on what is happening in the region.

"They don't need pats on the back. They need help down there on the border," Cuellar said. "Something has to change when it comes to border immigration issues."

Johnson served as Homeland Security secretary from 2013 to 2017 under the Obama administration. When asked whether he would be interested in the position or has been in discussions with the lawmakers or the Biden administration about the position, Johnson replied: “I have no comment.”

Earlier this year, Roberta Jacobson, former ambassador to Mexico from 2016 to 2018, served as an advisor on the U.S.-Mexico border. She resigned from the role earlier this year, saying it was only a temporary position.

Vice President Kamala Harris earlier this year was appointed to address the root causes of migration from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Harris has said that her focus is on diplomatic relations with officials from those countries and Mexico, rather than a focus on the border. However in June, Harris visited El Paso, where she toured the El Paso Border Patrol station and the El Paso del Norte Port of Entry.

There has been a dramatic increase of migrant children, families and adults coming to the U.S.-Mexico border this year. The number of migrants encountered at the U.S.-Mexico border by Customs and Border Protection reached a yearly high in June of 188,829.
