The US Border SLOWLY Becoming a Bipartisan Issue

The US border crisis is slowly, very slowly, becoming a bipartisan issue for the government. Blue cities and states have pleaded for help in recent months as crime rises and their budgets implode. Still, the majority of Democrats have not broken rank with their party regarding the border crisis. The House recently voted to implement national security measures, and while all 212 Republicans voted in favor, 193 Democrats voted against any attempt to secure the border.

Thirteen members (7 Republicans and 6 Democrats) did not vote, which means 14 Democrats were brave enough to break rank and side with the people. Democrats in favor of national security include 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), Steven Horsford (D-NV), Greg Landsman (D-OH), Susie Lee (D-NV), Frank Mrvan (D-IN), Mary Peltola (D-AK), Marie Gluesenkamp Perez (D-WA), and Eric Sorensen (D-IL).

The GOP-led House has been met with fierce opposition from Schumer’s Democrat-led Senate that is hell-bent on securing blue votes through open border policies. The House had even voted for the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas after he permitted the invasion of America, but the Senate stopped that from happening. The House is asking for the absolute bare minimum in terms of border security, such as prohibiting violent offenders from re-entering America and ensuring that migrants are held to the standard of law as American citizens.

Henry Cuellar of Texas is attempting to garner support for border security within his party. “I have always believed that Democrats can be strong on border security while also respecting the rights of migrants to claim asylum,” he published on social media. Rep. Colin Allred (D-Dallas) agreed with Cuellar and criticized his party for permitting crime ahead of the election. “The cynicism of saying that I don’t want to pass a package that will help us address a problem because I want to run on that in November is unacceptable,” Alred boldly stated.

Congress has passed more laws and provided more funding for Ukraine’s border than America’s. What the Democrats do not understand is that their voter base is beginning to realize the severity of the immigrant crisis. A Pew Research study from February 2024 found that 73% of Democrats believe the government is not doing a good job handling the border crisis. However, significantly more Democrats than Republicans think people are entering our nation illegally for better opportunities. The majority of Democrats do not want to build a wall nor do they believe immigration should be curbed, rather, they believe there should be more opportunities for people to legally enter the nation. Soon they will see that is simply not feasible economically or socially.

Slowly but surely, those who vehemently deny the crisis at the US-Mexico border will begin to see the crisis unfold before their eyes. The Democrats will not break rank unless they believe their voter base will support their policies.
