Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said Tuesday that President Joe Biden’s “open border policy” and hints at eventual amnesty are an “invitation” encouraging illegal immigration, human smuggling, and sex trafficking operations.
Blackburn said the situation at the border is “a crisis of the Biden administration’s making. When President Biden basically said our border is open — you’re not going to be deported, you’re not going to be turned away — people saw that as receiving an engraved invitation to come to the U.S. to get in line and try to get the benefits.”
She continued, “What they’re doing is trying to receive the benefits of U.S. citizenship and the promises of the American Dream without meeting the responsibility and obligations that are required for that.”
The American people need to fight against Biden’s policies, she said, because the impacts of illegal immigration are happening in every state.
Blackburn is trying to get Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy and other immigration protocols codified into law so that the border situation can once again come under reasonable control, but it’s bound to be an uphill battle with the current state of Congress and the executive branch.
