14 House Democrats Oppose Biden’s Permissive Border Policies

(ReliableNews.org) – Millions of immigrants have poured into the United States under President Joe Biden’s watch. They started coming in caravans the moment he was elected and have not stopped in three years. The problem is out of control, and now members of both parties are demanding action.

On January 18, House lawmakers voted 225-187 to approve a resolution condemning Biden’s border policies. The non-binding resolution was introduced by Texas Republican Rep. Nathaniel Moran. It states that it is “[d]enouncing the Biden administration’s open-border policies,” calling the present situation “the worst border security crisis in the Nation’s history.” The resolution also called it a “national security and public safety crisis.”

Moran’s resolution also claimed the administration has allowed more than 3 million illegal aliens into the US. It also states that a record 312 were on the Terrorist Screening Dataset, a more than 2,700% increase from former President Donald Trump’s administration.

Shockingly, 14 Democrats voted with all House Republicans to approve the measure. The Democrats were Reps. Mary Peltola (AK), Eric Sorensen (IL), Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (WA), Wiley Nickel (NC), Jared Moskowitz (FL), Susie Lee (NV), Vicente Gonzalez (TX), Greg Landsman (OH), Jared Golden (ME), Don Davis (NC), Angie Craig (MN), Henry Cuellar (TX), Colin Allred (TX), and Yadira Caraveo (CO).

The resolution comes at a pivotal time for the Biden Administration and Congress. Not only are lawmakers negotiating the budget for 2024, they are also in talks about Ukraine funding. The president met with Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA), Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), the Senate leaders, and heads of several important national security committees.

Biden wants them to approve more funding to help Ukraine, but the GOP is remaining firm. Conservatives are demanding the president change immigration policy before they will agree to any more money to help a foreign country.

“The border is a catastrophe,” Johnson said. A bipartisan group of lawmakers appears to agree.
