(ReliableNews.org) – When President Joe Biden took office, he immediately rescinded some of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. In the ensuing weeks, illegal immigrants flooded the border. That’s what made it so mind blowing when Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the border was “on a good path” and why it’s even more disturbing that a Democratic congresswoman agrees with her.
In an interview with Iowa Public Radio on April 15, Rep. Cindy Axne said she agrees with Pelosi that President Biden is doing a good job on the border. She claims that he actually wants to “tackle this issue.” Her comments come as reports of sexual assault arise in a facility holding unaccompanied minors and illegal immigrant crossings continue to surge.
Rep. Cindy Axne, D-Iowa, is considered one of the more vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the 2022 midterm elections.

Mike Berg, the spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, responded to Axne’s comments saying the Left’s border policies may play well in California, but they don’t “work for Iowa.” The congresswoman’s seat is one that Republicans hope to flip in 2022, and her comments might make that much easier.
