Now that President Joe Biden’s immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border is putting Americans at increased safety risks every day, a growing number of voters who supported Biden in the 2020 election are having serious cases of buyer’s remorse.
According to Fox News, that sentiment was strongly evidenced by the mother of Adrienne Sophia Exum, a 19-year-old from Texas who was brutally killed in a drunk driving incident that was caused by an illegal immigrant.
Rhonda Exum, the young woman’s mother, said she regrets casting her vote for Biden last November because the illegal immigrant who killed her daughter will not be deported thanks to Biden’s lax immigration policies.
“By him not being deported, it’s like you telling me my daughter’s life didn’t mean anything,” Exum told Fox News.
While Biden is losing support from virtually every important demographic for a growing list of reasons, the sheer number of illegal aliens committing serious crimes against Americans will undoubtedly further erode his base of support.
“I thought he was going to talk for the American people, basically, and not for himself,” Exum said of her decision to vote for Biden last year. “I don’t feel that he has done anything but disappoint.”
Tranette Gamboa, the deceased teen’s cousin, was also especially upset at the Biden administration’s handling of the immigrant who killed her cousin in the accident, telling Fox News, “They don’t care.”
Exum, who was clearly genuinely concerned about the state of Biden’s immigration policies that kept her daughter’s killer in-country, had a piece of reasonable and expected advice for the Biden White House.
“My message is: Look out for the American people first,” Exum said.
Texas AG reacts
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said of the administration’s failure to deport people like the illegal migrant who killed Adrienne: “For the first time, our guidelines will, in the pursuit of public safety, require an assessment of the individual and take into account the totality of the facts and circumstances.”
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) doesn’t accept that explanation, issuing a fiery statement with regard to Exum’s case.
“I think the answer to the ‘why?’ is that they have greater goals that are more important than saving members of families,” Paxton said.
