Massive Democrat betrayal in the House completely shakes things up

The Democrat party has been shocking the nation in recent months. But this time it’s different.

And a massive Democrat betrayal in the House has completely shaken things up.

A little over a dozen House Democrats split with their party to help Republicans approve a resolution on Tuesday criticizing President Joe Biden’s immigration policy and requesting that he act without waiting for a legislative solution.

Together with all 212 voting Republicans, 14 Democrats supported the proposal.

193 more Democrats abstained from voting on the resolution.

Thirteen lawmakers abstained from voting, seven of them Republicans and six of them Democrats.

Reps. Don Davis (D-NC), Jared Moskowitz (D-FL), Yadira Caraveo (D-CO), Angie Craig (D-MN), Henry Cuellar (D-TX), Sharice Davids (D-KS), Jared Golden (D-ME), Susan Lee (D-NV), Frank Mrvan (D-IN), Mary Peltola (D-AK), Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (D-WA), and Eric Sorensen (D-IL) were among the 14 defectors.

The resolution contains provisions criticizing Biden and his administration for allowing millions of undocumented immigrants to enter the country and causing the “worst border security crisis in the Nation’s history.”

It also enumerates certain powers that Biden ought to exercise while the president defers to Congress to find a solution, including terminating catch-and-release policies and signing cooperative agreements on asylum.

The resolution’s author, Representative Monica De La Cruz (R-TX), declared, “The current state of our nation’s border security is unsustainable.”

“The policies put forth by the Biden administration have resulted in the worst border security crisis in our nation’s history, endangering our communities and straining our resources,” she continued.

Cruz also claims that the resolution “underscores the urgent need for the Biden administration to take decisive action to address the crisis at our border.”

She said, “We urge the administration to immediately begin utilizing the authorities available to them to regain control of the situation and protect the interests of the American people.”

The resolution is the most recent in a line of actions that have gained support from both parties and are aimed at criticizing the Biden administration for how it has handled the border problem.

Late in January, 56 Democrats backed legislation pushed by Republicans that aimed to create additional fines for people who flee from Border Patrol officials within 100 miles of the border in fast-moving vehicle chases.

A few weeks prior, 14 Democrats and Republicans voted to condemn the “open-borders policies” of the Biden administration.

Last year, the Republican-controlled House enacted a border security package that included restrictions on asylum access among other things.

However, the Democratic-controlled Senate declined to consider what Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called “partisan right-wing demands.”

The border district representative, Cueller, had earlier on Tuesday stated that he was spearheading a group of 26 House Democrats to push Congress to enact bipartisan legislation to address the problem.

“Let’s get the job done,” he later said in a post on X, “I have always believed that Democrats can be strong on border security while also respecting the rights of migrants to claim asylum.”

Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of Homeland Security, was impeached by House Republicans for his handling of the border crisis, but the Senate has not yet held a trial for the Cabinet member.

Even Biden’s Democrat allies are turning on Joe Biden because he is destroying this great nation.
