“I can tell you in talking to the men and women in green, they don’t want to have somebody from D.C. come in and just give them a pat on the back. They want somebody to really have their back, and they don’t,” Cuellar said.
“Right now, when you talk to men and women in green and in blue, they feel demoralized. They don’t feel that Washington has their backs, and we’ve got to do more than just give them a pat on the back,” he added.
Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, crossed party lines Monday and blasted President Joe Biden for his lacking border policy.

Cuellar also blasted the end of Title 42. “You can’t say we have a pandemic or a public health issue here but then say everything is fine at the border and then lift the Title 42, which is a health order,” Cuellar said.
The views from Biden’s own party show how unpopular the president’s border policies have become, even for a Democrat rep whose district is along the southern border.
