Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said on Thursday that President Joe Biden’s immigration policies are harming the immigrants they claim to be helping, while claiming they are more compassionate than the Trump administration on the issue.
“I’m tired of the radical left — of Democrats, including those in the White House, right now — walking around patting themselves on the back for how compassionate they are when, in fact, they are endangering the lives of the immigrants who they are enticing to come here through their false promises,” Roy told Jerome Hudson on Sirius XM’s Breitbart News Daily.
Roy pointed out that people were being enticed to send their children to the U.S. border with sex traffickers or cartel members, and many were being abused and trafficked along the way.
“I’m just sick and tired of [Democrats] trying to claim the high road, that they’re somehow for brown people or for helping people,” he said. “They call me a bigot because I want a secure border, when a secure border is decidedly pro-America, pro-Constitution, but also decidedly pro-immigrant.”
He accused Biden of ignoring the problem, and Hudson agreed, adding, “There are mass graves near Texas, right now, today, and those graves are filled with the bodies of people who died trying to make it to the border.”
