Immigrant House Republicans: Biden Border Handling an ‘atrocity’ that Undermines Legal Immigration; GOP Rep. Salazar: No One Asks Latinos, the Brown Community How We Feel About Migrant Influx

Immigrant House Republicans: Biden border handling an ‘atrocity’ that undermines legal immigration:
As immigrants, Republican Reps. Victoria Spartz, Carlos Gimenez, and Young Kim understand why so many people want to build a new life in the United States. Their experiences give them a unique authority to criticize how President Joe Biden and his administration are handling a flood of immigrants at the southern border.
The three immigrant House Republicans, all freshman members elected in 2020, said in interviews with the Washington Examiner that the Biden administration’s handling of the southern border is an “atrocity” and a “crisis of humanity” that undermines the country’s legal immigration system, which, they added, is also broken.
“It's a human crisis,” said Spartz, of Indiana, who immigrated from Ukraine. She added that “instead of protecting the country and helping our citizens,” the current policies “incentivize illegal activity, incentivize drug trafficking and human trafficking.”
Spartz came to the U.S. with her American husband in 2000 when she was in her early 20s, but she did not get U.S. citizenship for years afterward.
“It took me six years to get my citizenship, my documents were lost, and it was very difficult to even deal with government agencies,” Spartz said. In contrast, those crossing the border illegally “can cross the border within a few hours and be in the country.” --->READ MORE HERE
GOP Rep. Salazar: No One Asks Latinos, the Brown Community How We Feel About Migrant Influx:
Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL) sounded off on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) claiming that the Biden administration secretly flew 70 flights of migrants from the border to his state.
Salazar called the report “very embarrassing” and questioned why nobody asks the “brown community” and the representatives of Latinos in the United States for handling the influx of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. She also slammed the Biden administration for failing to address the problem at the border.
“It’s very embarrassing that this is happening,” Salazar lamented. “And you know, I was telling you that no one really asks us, the brown community, the representatives of the Latinos in this country, how do we feel about this. And I’m going to tell you that this is extremely embarrassing because do you know where those people wind up at? … In our neighborhoods. And we do not know if those people are child sex traffickers if they’re drug dealers, if they’re coyotes, or these are bad actors. So, just picture this, and now, we understand that it’s in the dark of the night. And where are those people going to wind up at? In our neighborhoods. So, that’s why I’m saying to you we need an immigration reform law because everything that’s happening is because this government and Mr. Biden promised that within the first 100 [days] of his presidency, he was going to present an immigration reform law. And once again, he has dropped us for the reconciliation bill, for child care, for health care, for long care and for elderly care. Where are the immigrants?” --->WATCH and READ MORE HERE
