SCALISE: Joe Biden Created a Humanitarian Crisis at the Southern Border ‘With the Stroke of His Pen’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.15.21

Rep. Steve Scalise spoke with reporters at the US Capitol Wednesday on the escalating crisis spiraling at the southern border; saying Joe Biden created the humanitarian disaster with “the stroke of his pen.”

“We’re going to continue to raise awareness to this crisis at America’s southern border. It was exclusively created by President Biden,” said Scalise.

“With the stroke of a pen he undid policies that were working to control our southern border. It had a ripple effect. It immediately resulted in people coming by the thousands every day,” he added.

Vice President Kamala Harris confirmed Wednesday her plans to tour Guatemala and Mexico in the coming days. The top Biden official did not say whether she will visit the US-Mexico border as the immigration crisis spirals out of control.

“The president has asked Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas to address what is going on the border and he has been working very hard on that and is showing some progress because of his hard work,” she said at a Northern Triangle security discussion.

“I have been asked to lead the issue of dealing with root causes in the Northern Triangle, similar to what the then-Vice President did many years ago,” she said. “But I will tell you these are issues that aren’t going to be addressed overnight.”

“We have plans in the works to go to Guatemala as soon as possible,” added the Vice President.

Harris was appointed by Joe Biden to oversee the administration’s handling of the border crisis more than three weeks ago but has so-far failed to deliver any major address on the issue.

“Her assigned efforts on immigration, which includes overseeing diplomatic efforts with Northern Triangle countries, fit into a broader trend of the administration delegating substantial foreign policy responsibilities to her. For example, she has held calls with major world leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu,” reports Fox News.

“Since the beginning of the administration and a week after Biden’s announcement, Harris has fielded questions from the media but has yet to hold a formal press conference. Meanwhile, the border crisis captivated the nation’s attention and raised a series of concerns about national security and the stability of the U.S. immigration system as a whole,” adds Fox.

“So this new surge we’re dealing with now started with the last administration, but it’s our responsibility to deal with it humanely and to – and to stop what’s happening,” Biden said last Wednesday.

“And so, this increase has been consequential, but the vice president has agreed – among the multiple other things that I have her leading – and I appreciate it – agreed to lead our diplomatic effort and work with those nations to accept re- – the returnees, and enhance migration enforcement at their borders – at their borders.”

Rep. Steve Scalise joined the growing chorus of legislators calling for the removal of Ilhan Omar from the House Foreign Affairs Committee Tuesday; saying she should no longer have access to classified briefings regarding the State of Israel after her anti-Semitic rant.

“Right now, she sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee. She’s able to get classified briefings on foreign policy, especially as it relates to Israel. She’s made statements, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish statements, aligned herself with anti-Semitic people as well,” said Scalise.

“She should be removed from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Nancy Pelosi should remove her immediately,” he added.

GOP REP at the BORDER: ‘It’s Not a Crisis, It’s a Disaster, This is Out of Control’

Republican Congressman Buddy Carter toured the United States’ border with Mexico Friday; telling Americans what he witnessed was less a “crisis” and more an “out of control disaster.”

“Before I came here, I knew there was a crisis here. It’s not a crisis, it’s a disaster. Folks, this is out of control,” said Carter.

 

 

Congressman Steve Scalise toured the US-Mexico border in Texas this week witnessing first-hand “hundreds” of children “running” illegally into the United States.

“We just saw a large number of kids just come running across the border. They just came into the country illegally, just ran across, and they’ve been apprehended by Border Patrol Agents. It’s going on all around us. We’ve been here less than an hour,” said Scalise.

“They’re now getting processed. They’re coming into America. Joe Biden has created this magnet. Look at what’s happening, this is out of control,” he added.

 

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich confirmed this week that Vice President Kamala Harris has failed to respond to his official invitation to tour the humanitarian crisis taking place along the US-Mexico border.

“I guess if you were a philosopher you would say no response is a very loud response because we’ve not received any response,” Brnovich told Fox Business’ Dagen McDowell.

Vice President Kamala Harris was appointed by Joe Biden to oversee the administration’s handling of the border crisis more than 16 days ago but has so-far failed to deliver any major address on the issue.

“Her assigned efforts on immigration, which includes overseeing diplomatic efforts with Northern Triangle countries, fit into a broader trend of the administration delegating substantial foreign policy responsibilities to her. For example, she has held calls with major world leaders like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu,” reports Fox News.
