While President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have experienced some reprieve by their allies in the mainstream media with regard to the immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border, the issue is still a real threat, and at least one Republican congressman isn’t willing to let them slide.
According to Breitbart, Texas Republican Rep. Tony Gonzales tore into the Biden-Harris administration during a recent Fox & Friends interview, saying that both leaders have gone “AWOL” on the issue, leaving America as vulnerable as it has ever been at its own borders.
“It has only gotten worse”
Other than Fox News, few networks — if any — have given the ongoing issue the attention that it deserves, as the surge of illegal immigrants continues to wreak havoc on communities that are eventually forced to shelter and feed them.
That’s not to mention the increased pressure on local law enforcement agencies, with many sheriffs going on record as saying that their communities are being overrun with crime and other incidents as a direct result of Biden’s failure to tamp down on the immigration issue.
“Things are as bad as it has ever been,” Gonzales said. “It hasn’t gotten better. It has only gotten worse. And sadly, Texans feel as if we’re alone, and we see it. We’re doing everything we possibly can to fight against this immigration crisis.”
The GOP lawmaker added: “But the ‘big guy’ is AWOL. Kamala Harris is AWOL. The federal government is nowhere to be found. Texans are having to take care of Texans as we fight through this pandemic.”
He went on to recall a horrifying recent request made by county officials in the district he represents, who asked for more body bags. “I had to work with the Texas Division of Emergency Management to get them more body bags. And now, guess what? They are asking for even more body bags,” Gonzales said.
COVID-19, a new danger
Not only is the southern border continually overrun by illegals scrambling to reach U.S. soil, but with a resurgence of the COVID-19 virus — namely the Delta variant — other lawmakers are raising serious questions as to why the Biden administration is letting thousands of potentially infected illegals come across the border.
That’s an especially valid question given yesterday’s bombshell announcement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in which they’re now urging Americans — even the vaccinated — to once again wear masks indoors, citing the surge in recent cases.
“Until the Biden Administration stops the thousands of people with COVID [Chinese coronavirus] from pouring into our country illegally, then shipping them all over the country, we are going to continue to have waves of outbreak of COVID [Chinese coronavirus],” said Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX).
As of this writing, the White House has not clarified the reason why the administration hasn’t taken more drastic action to prevent waves of potentially COVID-19-infected illegals that continue to pour across the southern border.
It seems to be crystal clear at this point that the Biden-Harris administration simply has zero interest in tackling the immigration crisis, and as a result, Americans will continue to be at risk as a result of their inaction.
