14 Democrats back resolution blasting ‘the Biden administration’s open-borders policies’

Breaking News

More than a dozen House Democrats joined Republicans in voting for a resolution that decries “the Biden administration’s open-borders policies.”

The resolution “condemns the national security and public safety crisis that President Joe Biden, ‘Border Czar’ Vice President Kamala Harris, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, and other Biden administration officials have created along the southwest border.”

It passed in a 225-187 vote. While 211 Republicans voted for the resolution, 14 Democrats also backed it. Those Democrats include:

  • Rep. Colin Allred of Texas
  • Rep. Yadira Caraveo of Colorado
  • Rep. Angie Craig of Minnesota
  • Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas
  • Rep. Donald Davis of North Carolina
  • Rep. Jared Golden of Maine
  • Rep. Vicente Gonzalez of Texas
  • Rep. Greg Landsman of Ohio
  • Rep. Susie Lee of Nevada
  • Rep. Jared Moskowitz of Florida
  • Rep. Wiley Nickel of North Carolina
  • Rep. Mary Peltola of Alaska
  • Rep. Marie Gluesenkamp Perez of Washington
  • Eric Sorensen of Illinois

“Most of us understand that nations need borders, those borders should be secured, and we should enforce the immigration laws on the books. Most of us also understand that those seeking entry to our country deserve an orderly and predictable immigration process. Right now we have problems on both fronts,” Golden said in a statement. “Illegal immigration threatens our national security and undermines American jobs. It’s time for Congress and the Biden administration to come together and pass legislation to meaningfully address issues at the border. It should be a top priority in Washington, just like it is in most of America,” Golden noted.

“It’s unfortunate that the far-right and the far-left continue to make this a political issue rather than coming to the table to find consensus and common ground,” Nickel said in a statement, according to The Hill. “I remain focused on working in a bipartisan way to secure the border and pass comprehensive immigration reform through Congress. I’ll work with anyone to help save lives, improve security at the southern border, and make our communities safer.”
