Joe Biden’s border policy has finally led the Democrats to turn against him.
Last week, Gov. Maura Healey (D-Mass.) said her state has had to take charge against illegal immigration while the federal government sits back and does nothing. Healey declared a state of emergency last week over the migrant crisis in her state.
In a letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, she wrote that Massachusetts had taken steps to address what was a federal crisis of inaction for many years.
Alderman Raymond Lopez of the Chicago City Council is a Democrat who has also criticized Obama’s inaction on illegal immigration.
In an open letter to Biden, Lopez wrote at the end of last month: “I invite you to see what we can do while we wait for the [US Citizenship and Immigration Services] to take the necessary measures to address this crime.” “The lax response by Secretary Mayorkas and USCIS Director Jaddou is pushing our city to the edge unnecessarily.”
New York City Mayor Eric Adams has criticized the Biden Administration’s refusal to tackle immigration reform. Adams had previously said that he welcomed migrants into New York City. Now, he claims that the federal government is “turning its back” on a humanitarian crisis.
NBC News reported Senator Mark Kelly (D – Arizona) had also criticized Biden’s “dumb” border policies. “I stood my ground when Democrats, including President Obama, were wrong on this issue.” He said, “When President Obama decided to change the rules and create a bigger crisis on this issue, I told him he was wrong.”
Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.) echoed Kelly’s remarks regarding the President. “We’ve paid the price for the federal government’s failure to fix the broken system of immigration most of my adult life. ”
According to The New York Post, Democratic Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. criticized Biden saying: “We should’ve shut the border.”
Kennedy stated, “I’d like to see an immigration policy that is both orderly and sensible for our country. I would also like to have border security that is impervious. “
