Democrat Senator attacks Biden for ignoring border crisis in Congressional address

In his address to a joint session of Congress, President Joe Biden proposed massive spending on new social programs and amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, but it was his failure to discuss what many view as the most pressing dilemma currently facing the country that prompted swift criticism from one prominent Democrat lawmaker.

As Breitbart reports, Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) slammed Biden for omitting from his Wednesday speech any plan to tackle the border crisis that has been worsening since he took office and pledged to “continue holding this administration accountable” over the increasingly untenable situation.

In a statement following the address, Sen. Kelly declared, “While I share President Biden’s urgency in fixing our broken immigration system, what I didn’t hear tonight was a plan to address the immediate crisis at the border,” suggesting that the administration needed to do more “to deliver the resources and staffing necessary for a humane, orderly process as we work to improve border security, support local economies, and fix our immigration system.”

Kelly’s observations are well-taken, given the startling facts on the ground at the southern border and the Biden administration’s lack of coordinated response plan. As Breitbart noted, last month alone, roughly 170,000 border crossers were apprehended by authorities – including over 18,600 unaccompanied minors. The president’s decisions to reinstate the Catch and Release system and to reverse Trump-era remain-in-Mexico policies are the key driver of the migrant influx, according to a recent study from the Center for Immigration Studies.

Despite having tapped Vice President Kamala Harris back in March to lead the administration’s response to the border crisis, Republicans have blasted her lack of action, noting that Harris has yet to even visit the region or hold a press conference to discuss a response plan. The administration has instead attempted to downplay the vice president’s true role, suggesting that she is focusing on the root causes of mass migration and that the problem is “not going to be solved overnight.”

While Biden has far-reaching plans when it comes to offering citizenship to millions living here illegally, GOP leaders including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have made it clear that unless the administration begins taking real action with regard to the border surge, those initiatives will face very real opposition, according to The Hill.

McConnell stated on Tuesday that “everybody is sympathetic with the [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] issue,” an indication that Republicans may be willing to consider citizenship for the discrete group of individuals known as “Dreamers.” However, he also cautioned, “I can’t imagine we wold take up an immigration-related bill, no matter how worthy it might be…without insistence on our part that we address the obvious crisis at the border.”

Last month, the House of Representatives passed a pair of bills intended to facilitate pathways to citizenship for roughly half of the illegal immigrants in the country, though success in the Senate is far from certain. Republican leaders, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) suggested that the House proposals were ill-timed in that the legislation “ignores the problem, but will actually worsen the situation,” according to the New York Post.

Though the administration seems determined to see just how long it can get away with neglecting the self-inflicted crisis at the southern border, it is at least encouraging to see Republican lawmakers – joined now by at least one Senate Democrat – demanding the accountability American citizens deserve.

      1. Right on… you are absolutely correct it’s that simple..lets do it after all they impeached TRUMP for nothing other than spite n hatred

    2. B__l Crap ! Biden is nothing more than a Three Ring Cricus CLOWN . He’s brain is
      as smaller the smallest Pea. Even dr. Jill is as dumb as that thing they call a president. Obama had more brains than Joey China and that is not saying much for that pea brain either.

      1. Obama has No more brains than pea brain biden has.. And Obama is also Brain Dead with a brain no bigger than the smallest pea.

    1. you wanna fix the border that wasn’t broken til joe got his hands on it impeach biden throw out kamala piglosi and schumer they’re problem solved

      1. Exactly. All they have to do is slam the “door” shut, fix the fence, and get rid of those who squirreled in.

      2. You’re right Gail. I think that “incompetent” Kamala was intentionally appointed … knowing that she’s incapable of tackling this problem; AND won’t do anything substantive! Trump’s WALL is the only REAL answer at this point.

    2. obozo joes ears go deaf to you and my requests! Because, obozo joe, only listens to his masters voice, after all it his masters third term!!!

  2. American citizens are being replaced by illegals and Pelosi is making sure the illegals will get to vote democrat. Her ” for the people” act is nothing more than a scheme that benefits corrupt politicians like her.

  3. TIME TO DEMAND CONGRESS IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  4. Michael Saunders, U.S. Army S.F. veteran of the Vietnam war and 23 years in law enforcement says:

    To bad that Biden wasn’t stabbed in the back with a real knife.

    1. America would be in a much better place. And when will Hunter be in front of a jury, not making jokes in front of students at Tulane?

      1. WE ALL KNOW WHO HIS DADDY IS HE WILL KEEP HIM OUT OF PRISON THATS ALL HE WILL DO, HE IS A MENTAL ILL PERSON NOT CAPABLE OF BEING PRESIDENT OR DO WE WANT HIM, HE HAS SAID HE WILL BE THE BEST PRESIDENT WE HAVE EVER HAD, THEN THE SLAP ACROSS THE FACE IS THE COMMUNIST TO OFFICE. GOD WILLING HE WILL TAKE BOTH

    1. I totally agree and have been saying that for years. There are certain things it takes to reach the point of becoming a U.S. citizen and it should stay exactly that way. They need to prove themselves that they actually deserve to become a U.S. citizen.

    2. Open borders? If you don’t have borders you don’t have a country.
      Also, consider your American brothers and sisters who work and live in ranches along the border. The illegals charge across their property without regard to the owner, trash it, create fear for safety. At least in AZ.

  5. Joe Biden Stabbed in the back? How about the American people stabbed in the back by Biden AND the so-called
    Democrat party which acts totally Un-Democratic and more Communistic than even some of the Communist regimes that have existed? Judging by the way they are treating members of president Trumps administration,
    I wonder if the are going to start putting citizens against walls and start blasting away.
    I am overjoyed that some Democrat Congressmen and State & Local elected officials throughout the Country are starting to speak up against the radical actions Biden is taking.
    His new proposed tax increase supposedly to help citizens would be more helpful if not implemented. We are already feeling the weight of his other ridiculous programs.

    1. Have you seen the video about how our veterans/homeless are being treated in Phoenix versus how the ILLEGALS are being housed there. If not, you need to check it out. Talk about us, the American people, being stabbed in the back. It probably just a sample of how we are being treated in other cities in comparison to how the ILLEGALS are being taken care of. Check it out — interesting stuff. I can’t give any additional info in finding the video, sorry, so I hope you take the time and try to find it.

  6. What is Kamala researching the root of the surge of immigrants for? If she doesn’t know without wasting time in researching and do something. We need her to demand the solution to the president, Nancy and Chuck and demand the stop of the deplorable situation Joe and company has done. It obvious she does not have the qualifications to be a Vice President.

    1. There is nothing for Harris to research to find the root of the surge. There have been uprisings in Central America since prior to 1989 and, yet, NOW we are having problems with these ILLEGALS coming here under Biden and the idiots!!!! We need Trump to clean up the worse mess at the border.

  7. When McConnell says all Republicans are sympathetic to the Daca’s, I strongly disagree with him. I for one am not sympathetic to their cries of unfair treatment. They came here illegally, they may have been in their mother’s belly or they may have been born here. No matter they had opportunities to fix their situation and didn’t and for that they must pay the price. We have homeless, sick and aging veterans to look after and we must do that first before any illegal gets anything. Do you here us Mitch and you to Biden.

  8. Nice to know someone stabbed Joe Biden in the back again. I hope someone hangs the pricck someday. I do not like people that hate and tr destroy America and tell lies like Joe Biden and Camel toe

  9. All of this “talk”…yet no one does anything about it!! Let us get “these people” OUT OF OFFICE!! THEY ARE RUINING OUR U.S.OF AMERICA! (but, “HOW” are we to do that??) Do we have to wait until 2022? Heaven forbid!

  10. One thing about the Democrats is they will stand by their own no matter what he or she has done.
    With that said and the democrats that are now in Congress and do not forget the CORRUPT NEWS MEDIA.
    Biden will never be impeached. And that is a crying shame because this old fool is being used to destroy this country.
