It is a joke, a tremendous waste of time and treasury money is how Rep. Brian Babin has described the impeachment witch hunt that the Democrats desperately pursue.
Babin, 72, who represents the 36th Congressional District in southeast Texas, said the Democrats are dragging the country through the mud of continuous hate against the former president.
Today, Feb. 12, the Biden administration just ended Trump’s national emergency and funding for the border wall.
Each day 3,500 people are being caught illegally trying to cross into the United States, and that’s only 40% of the real number attempting to cross over from Mexico. Biden is risking the safety of Americans, especially during a pandemic, says the senator.
The Customs and Border Patrol announced on Wednesday that nearly 78,000 people were apprehended attempting to cross the border, the most since July 2019, reports Newsmax.
”It will have a disastrous impact,” Babin said on Newsmax TV’s ”Spicer & Co.” ”Not only on Texas but the entire country. Open borders are the making of a disaster. And for President Biden to say the act that he has repealed is unwarranted is simply a complete piece of fiction. ”He is creating a terrible crisis there.”
White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Tuesday the Biden administration intends to have half the country’s schools open for one day per week by the end of April.
Babin pointed out that many schools were already open way beyond one day a week. ”It’s like him saying his pandemic strategy for COVID is something he came up with. He’s using President Trump’s strategy….’
He added, ”[Democrats] seem to pick and choose what type of science they want to do. Over the last year, Democrats have prohibited Americans’ ability to go church, to go to school, to go back to work, and it is simply time to open this country back up. It’s disgraceful the way they are politicizing this. I think there is going to be a day of reckoning. I think 2022 is going to be a very, very tough year for these Democrats.”
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) is pressing Biden to answer for what he calls dangerous immigration policies, which are leading to flooding of the nation with “unvaccinated” illegal aliens capable of further spreading the coronavirus within America’s borders, reports Gateway Pundit.
The letter, which Breitbart News obtained exclusively ahead of its public release, is signed by Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), John Thune (R-S.D.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), James Inhofe (R-Okla.), and Thom Tillis (R-N.C.).
“We write regarding your administration’s efforts to severely weaken border security and immigration controls in the midst of an historic pandemic,” Cotton and the GOP senators wrote to President Biden.
“Your re-implementation of the failed Obama-era policy of “catch-and-release,” your planned rescission of international agreements like the Migration Protection Protocols (also known as the ‘Remain in Mexico’ program), and your attempts to dismantle immigration enforcement and halt deportations have predictably led to a surge of migration to our southern border.
“This endangers our economic recovery, weakens public safety, and imperils our nation’s public health.”
