President Joe Biden and a number of Democratic members of Congress have made it clear that the only border they care about is the one separating Russia from Ukraine. Biden’s essentially promised Ukraine a blank check for as long as it takes for Ukraine to end triumphant. It would be nice if some of those billions could be put toward finishing President Trump’s border wall.

The House Homeland Security Committee is having a field hearing in Texas Wednesday to address the border crisis, but chairman Rep. Mark Green says that all of the Democrats on the committee have bailed on the hearing.

“He says that’s despite several Dems confirming attendance, & inviting their own minority witness, who is confirmed on the federal panel.
US Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz is also set to testify. Chairman Green says he was given no reason for the abrupt pullout. Chairman Green’s statement below.”

Well, that makes it better.

“After careful consideration, Committee Democrats have decided not to participate in the Republicans’ field hearing this week. Unfortunately, it has become clear that Republicans planned to politicize this event from the start, breaking with the Committee’s proud history of bipartisanship. Instead of a fact-finding mission to develop better border security and immigration policies, Republicans are traveling to the border to attack the Administration and try to score political points with their extreme rhetoric — despite having voted against the resources border personnel need. Committee Democrats are in regular contact with Department leadership and stakeholders on the ground and will be taking substantive site visits to the border — including as soon as this week.”

Republicans are traveling to the border to attack the administration with their extreme rhetoric … we wouldn’t call the rhetoric extreme, but Republicans have every right to attack the administration on its complete and utter failure to deal with the border crisis.

Even Biden finally broke down and visited El Paso, which cleared out all the migrant camps on the sidewalk before he arrived.

It escapes us why the Democrat Party wants to be the party of open borders going into the 2024 election.
