Romney goes after Biden administration’s handling of border crisis

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) — typically sympathetic to Democrats and President Joe Biden — had some choice words for the Biden administration Homeland Security head Alejandro Mayorkas over his seeming apathy in answering senators’ questions about the border crisis, according to The Washington Examiner.

Romney said that the secretary’s attitude on the crisis was “extremely damning” in his headline-grabbing outburst: “What I find astonishing, Mr. Chairman is that we have the secretary responsible for securing our border and our immigration system who doesn’t recognize these charts as being a problem,” Romney said. 

“And there are human beings behind these numbers. And [he] is not saying, ‘Hey, we’ve got to make some changes immediately.’ I find that extraordinary and extremely damning,” the Utah Republican said during his comments at a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing Thursday

Romney was using border statistics on nearby poster boards as the basis of his argument. Those numbers indicated that in the month of April alone, more than 178,000 people attempted to cross illegally from Mexico into the United States between the designated points of entry, or were denied admission at the border. 

Those figures are a 21-year high for border and attempted border crossings, and have more than doubled since President Joe Biden took office in January of this year. 

Consequently, January is also the month that Biden rescinded many Trump-era border policies that had been put into effect by the former administration to deter illegal migration.

“Is this not a massive failure that would suggest that the administration needs to take immediate action to remedy what we’re seeing here?” Romney asked.

The cabinet secretary responded saying that the administration was working to resettle the children who had appeared at the U.S. border, however, Romney pulled him back to the problem of Biden not working to stop the flow of migrants from Central America:

“The number coming into our country and being released into our country is at a skyrocketed level, as is this. The question is: Do you have plans to do something dramatically different such that those numbers come down to an acceptable level? Because, as you can imagine, this overwhelms our border control agents,” Romney said. “If they’ve got numbers like this they’re dealing with, this means that the drug cartels can be smuggling through drugs because our folks are taking care of kids. They’re taking care of people coming in illegally. Do we have plans to dramatically address what’s happening here?”

Not surprising to many Republicans, Mayorkas did not have any plan to share for how the Biden administration planned to stop the 17,000 children, 50,000 family members, and 100,000 adults who showed up at the border last month

After leaving my previous job 6 months ago, I’ve some good luck to learn about this website which was a life-saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their house. My latest paycheck after working for them for 1 months was for $9500… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet…

If you’re referring to resident Bribem, he’s a CINO – Catholic In Name Only, as is Piglosi.
Millions of us Catholics support OUR PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT Trump and are standing tall against the DEMONRATS out to destroy our beloved USA.

Well it appears that old “Mitten” is attempting to “look” like a Republican again to appease his Republican voters hoping they will vote for him again if he runs again. I hope the Republican voters in his state have learned their lesson about him and not vote for him again for their sake and the sake of the rest of the nation.

It really is a mess with the immigration problems, these people think they can just cross our border breaking the law without punishment, they think they rule America that is a huge mistake, it needs to be stopped, they demand money to live on without working not a single second on the clock while Americans bust their tails working and then the government takes it away on taxes to support people we do not even know what type they are. Are they criminals, are they drug people, are they pedo’s , they just horrible health wise and bring diseases to the American people to get sick , who are these people coming from afar, they are not tested and many have COVID. WHY IS BIDEN AND HIS PEOPLE NOT DOING ANYTHING TO STOP THE SPENDING INSTEAD THEY ARE SPENDING AMERICANS TO NO END. THIS IS VERY WRONG. SEND THEM ALL BACK AND MAKE THEM PAY FOR THEIR FARES.

This BORDER CRISES APPEARS TO BE SUFFICIENT GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT. iT IS DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY AND NO EVIDENCE TO STOP THE DESTRUCTION. BIDEN, HARRIS AND OBAMA HAVE A LOT OF PROPERTY AND ILLEGALLY GAINED MONEY.. THEY CAN HOUSE AND TAKE OF THEIR ADOPTED FAMILIES.

Sounds like Romney is trying to get back into the good graces of what little support he has among Republicans. Most of the remarks he’s made lately have been to the left of AOC

When you have a President and Vice President who won’t even go to the border to find out the problems that exist there, how can they possibly know what is going on. Biden reversed all of Trumps border orders. To say we have a problem is short of what it really is. It is a major crisis not only from the standpoint of people but also from the amount of drugs being released into the US. Dumb and dumber can only look the other way for so long. They have to address this issue. The border states are suffering big time.

SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH 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 a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

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!

To all that would like to give the Biden administration the finger for the border problem I have a solution, that would take the problem out of Biden’s hands.
This is so simple Ted Cruz will Love it.
You just take all of Trump border policies, roll them up into one bill.
Then you do a referendum to add it to the constitution, so the Democrats can’t mess with it. any changes would require a majority in the house, and 3/4 vote in the Senate. Until the referendum is done there would be a moratorium on any immigration, we use the time to clean up the Biden mess.

SO the Rino decides to take a stance on something! I guess after being booed off the stage at the convention in Utah he decided to turn things around, too little too late. However, I’m glad that he did this. Biden’s whole administration needs to be taken down some way. They’ve done absolutely nothing to improve America.

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!
