President Joe Biden has vowed to close the U.S.-Mexico border when overwhelmed by migrants in a new bill proposed to the Senate on January 26, 2024.
“What’s been negotiated would – if passed into law – be the toughest and fairest set of reforms to secure the border we’ve ever had in our country,” Biden said in a statement.
“It would give me, as President, a new emergency authority to shut down the border when it becomes overwhelmed. And if given that authority, I would use it the day I sign the bill into law.”
On ‘The Angle,’ Laura Ingraham described the Biden Administration’s desired tweaks to immigration law as a disregard for democracy by “hiding bills hundreds of pages long until the last possible minute, then forcing a vote before anyone’s had the chance to really dissect it.”
Ingraham added: “Shills for the cheap labor lobby are a dime a dozen on Capitol Hill. We’ve talked about this for years. And they think you’re stupid and that they could sneak through a massive foreign worker expansion that still allows Biden to wave in close to 2 million migrants in one year.
“Now, that’s a win-win, isn’t it? For both Biden and McConnell. You get the Ukraine money, you get more migrants, and you get political cover for the Democrats. But it is a gut punch to American workers.”
According to statistics released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, encounters averaged more than 9,500 per day in December 2023. As per Ingraham, working American citizens have the right to be ‘cynical’ about these drastic statistics.
“Time after time, politicians promised us that they are actually willing to enforce the border. I mean, really enforce the border,” she said. “But then when you read the deals, it’s really amnesty. Plus a gargantuan foreign worker increase with a promise of some type of enforcement or some limitation.”
However, Ingraham went on to identify lawmakers failing to prioritize national security as the true ‘cynics.’
“The true cynics are those who put the short-term interests of their donors over the long-term interests of the American people,” she explained.
“The true cynics are those who go on television and lie about the enforcement plans. ‘It’s going to work this time’ when they know very well none of those plans will be implemented by this crowd.”
Ingraham concluded: “We’re not cynical, we’re actually pragmatic, and we’re energized, and we are going to do everything we can to prevent you from further damaging America.”
