More Democrats are turning against Joe Biden over his policies at the Southern border, causing an unprecedented migrant crisis in cities nationwide.
Seven prominent liberal politicians, and one Independent, are now demanding Biden do more to stem the flow of migrants to American cities.
Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey said the government has been missing in action as she declared a state of emergency last week over the migrants crisis in her state.
“Massachusetts has stepped up to address what sadly has been a federal crisis of inaction that is many years in the making,” she said in her letter to the feds.
Healey also demanded the Biden administration pay for the expenses, as almost 5,600 migrant families or more than 20,000 individuals sheltered in the state.
Chicago Alderman Raymond Lopez challenged Biden to tour overrun migrant camps in the city.
“I invite you to see firsthand what we are forced to do while waiting for [US Citizenship and Immigration Services] to take the steps necessary to move the needle on this crisis,” wrote Raymond Lopez in an open letter.
“This facility, along with the 11 shelters offering semi-permanent housing to the migrants and asylum-seekers, are pushing our city to the brink unnecessarily because of the lax response from Secretary Mayorkas and USCIS Director Jaddou.”
“They were ignoring this crisis that’s been going since Joe Biden took office,” according to Republican National Congressional Committee Spokeswoman Savannah Viar.
“In Joe Biden’s American, every state is a border state. Now that their backyards have become the border because this crisis has gotten so out of hand under the Democrats, they’re now acting like they always supported securing the border.”
Viar said New York City and Massachusetts’ own liberal laws have invited the migrant crisis.
“They invited this into their own backyard by creating sanctuary cities, so now, they need to put up,” she said.
“Now [sanctuary cities] are experiencing what the southern border cities, like El Paso, have been seeing for years now.”
New York Mayor Eric Adams said the federal government “turned its back” o the city as it faces a crisis that could cost taxpayers $12 billion.
“There is reason to hope that the plight of sanctuary mayors will put pressure on Pres. Biden,” Eric Ruark, Director of Research at NumbersUSA, told The New York Post.
“When a Republican speaks out, whether a mayor or a member of Congress, the response from the Biden Administration usually is, ‘They don’t understand what’s going on,’ or ‘They’re against immigration reform.'”
US Senator Mark Kelly of Arizona blasted Biden for his “dumb” border policies.
Even Democrat Katie Hobbs and Congressman Ruben Gallegos criticized Biden’s border policies, asking him to send more help.
“D.C. has shown little regard for the actual crisis that’s occurring in Arizona,” Independent US Senator Kyrsten Sinema slammed the Biden Administration in May.
“We’ve paid the price for the federal government’s failure to fix our broken immigration system for most of my lifetime,” said US Senator Kyrsten Sinema in May of Biden’s border policies.
“We’ve paid the price for the federal government’s failure to fix our broken immigration system for most of my lifetime.”
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has also criticized Biden.
“We should have closed the border,” the political challenger said.
