Opinion: Democrats to blame for increased immigration


Re “Biden says he had to use Trump-era funds for the border wall. Asked if barriers work, he says ‘No.’” (Oct. 6): Your front-page article talks about the illegal immigration at the Southern border that has been going on since Joe Biden took office as president. Yet we have been told repeatedly by Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and many Democrats that our border is “secure.”

It apparently has taken complaining from Democrat governors and mayors whose cities have been overwhelmed by illegal immigration for them to now change their tune. Unbelievable.

The Democrats had control of the House, Senate and presidency for the first two years of the current administration and did nothing to improve the immigration issues that Democrats now decry as being the fault of the Republicans.

Attempting to tell us it’s the fault of the opposition party just won’t wash. Sorry, nice try. There is more than enough blame to go around. Our border/immigration issues are a mess and need to be solved.

Your vote in 2024 could be the first step to a solution.
