Democrats are actively avoiding dealing with the crisis they created.
And they are ever willing to ditch their responsibilities.
You won’t believe how Democrats bailed on this important border crisis hearing.
House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) said that all Democrats on the committee are pulling out from attending a hearing in the field about the ongoing border crisis in a statement released on Monday.
This comes while America is experiencing record-breaking illegal immigration numbers under Joe Biden. In 2022 there were 2.76 million illegal border crossings, breaking the previous annual record by more than one million.
“It’s deeply disappointing that the Minority members of the Committee have chosen to bail on this week’s full committee field hearing in Texas, only after they invited and confirmed a minority witness for one of the panels,” Green said in a statement. “The only message their absence sends is that they are uninterested in coming to the table to have a conversation about the devastation that this border crisis is having on Americans and their communities across the country. We will continue to encourage our Democrat colleagues to get out of the DC echo chamber and meet Americans where they are to discuss the biggest issues facing them.”
Ranking Member Bennie Thompson (D-MS) claimed that Democrats will not participate because “it has become clear that Republicans planned to politicize this event from the start.”
“Instead of a fact-finding mission to develop better border security and immigration policies, Republicans are traveling to the border to attack the Administration and try to score political points with their extreme rhetoric,” Thompson falsely claimed. “Committee Democrats are in regular contact with Department leadership and stakeholders on the ground and will be taking substantive site visits to the border – including as soon as this week.”
Democrats want to avoid the issue even though it is hurting average Americans.
According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform the tax burden from illegal immigration at the federal, state, and local levels is roughly $150.7 billion per year.
“The costs of providing for millions of people who have no legal right to be in the United States continues to grow at an alarming rate,” FAIR President Dan Stein said in comments provided to The Daily Wire. “Most of this enormous financial burden has been inflicted on taxpayers by the open borders advocates at every level of government.”
These costs have risen by $35 billion over the past five years.
“Not only is the Biden administration refusing to rein-in illegal immigration or remove the people who are breaking our laws, they are promulgating policies that actually encourage more of it while offering new protections and benefits to those who settle here illegally,” Stein continued. “Likewise, a growing number of states and localities create their own costly magnets for illegal aliens by declaring themselves sanctuaries and offering new benefits and services.”
