For years, House Republicans have been trying to pass legislation to secure the Southern border. But they have been blocked, as Democrat lawmakers ignore the ongoing crisis.
More recently, Speaker Johnson has moved forward with a bill to provide border security and immigration reform.
But one freshman Democrat, had other plans. Outraged that Republicans wanted to protect America’s border, he proposed doing something with iconic landmark the State of Liberty. Americans were not pleased.
From Fox News:
Rep. Maxwell Frost, D-Fla., was mocked on social media Wednesday for telling Republicans to pass a bill to remove the Statue of Liberty along with their “bigoted” immigration law…
“This is ridiculous,” The Telegraph contributor Nile Gardiner remarked…
“Hey! Statue!” The Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller joked, pointing out the leftist trope…
“Democrats can’t decide if they want to topple statues or have them make our laws for us,” writer Ryan James Girdusky posted.
Freshman Democrat from Florida, Maxwell Frost, attacked a Republican bill to provide border security and immigration reform. Frost, like many Democrats, claims that protecting the border from illegal immigration is “bigoted.”
He criticized Republicans saying that the aliens who cross over the border illegally “deserve better” than what they are offering. Since Biden took office, over 5 million migrants have illegally entered the United States, creating a humanitarian crisis and burdening numerous U.S. cities.
Frost, in an attempt to mock Republican lawmakers, proposed a bill to remove the State of Liberty. The Democrat claimed the state is America’s “largest symbol that tells people to come here.”
Like many Democrats, Frost has failed to make a distinction between legal immigrants and migrants crossing the border illegally. His immature antics were mocked by users online. Some pointed out how Frost is mirroring the common behavior of radical activists, who have vandalized or torn down many American statues.
Others exposed Frost’s weak argument. One user said, “The country’s going to hell because people keep electing morons like this.” It is likely that Americans will not appreciate Rep. Frost’s stunt. The border has become a major issue with voters. For Democrats to fail to see the growing crisis, is nothing short of alarming.
- A freshman House Democrat proposed a bill to remove the Statue of Liberty.
- Maxwell Frost criticized Republicans’ border bill, confusing illegal immigration with legal immigration.
- D.C. Democrats have been mostly silent about the border crisis, which has brought over 5 million illegals into the country.
