With the election just months away, Democrats appear to be getting nervous. Joe Biden made many promises to Americans. But it seems, according to his approval numbers, Americans don’t believe he’s made good on them.
Under President Biden, the nation has been hit with numerous crises. And that doesn’t factor in the conflicts erupting all over the world.
But one major crisis has reached a breaking point recently. It could be the nail in Joe’s—and the party’s—coffin this November. Now, a growing group of Democratic congressmen are turning on Biden. And they are voting with Republicans.
From Daily Wire:
Dozens of House Democrats assisted Republicans in passing a bill on Tuesday that aims to shore up border security in yet another display of bipartisanship on the contentious issue…
A tally by the House clerk showed 215 Republicans and 56 Democrats voted in support of the bill while 154 Democrats and no Republicans voted against it.
President Biden appears to be playing a game of chicken over the border crisis. He is demanding funding for Ukraine and other non-border issues before he will do anything about the 3-year crisis.
But it doesn’t appear as if Democrats in the House are on his side. Because 56 of them voted with Republicans to pass another bill aimed at protecting the border. This new bill focuses on the all-too-common high-speed chases that happen between police and illegals who cross the border.
Often, smugglers make it over the border with migrants hiding in their vehicles. They sometimes reach border towns, where cops try to pull them over. What ensues are deadly high-speed chases through normally peaceful communities.
This bill will create new strict penalties for anyone who engages in high-speed chases within 100 miles of the border. While President Biden appears unwilling to address the many issues arising from the border crisis, these 56 Democrats seem to realize, something must be done.
It is unknown if this bill will advance to the Senate. But the more Democrats defect over this issue, the harder it will be for Biden to keep ignoring it.
- Democrats sided with Republicans to pass a border bill in the House.
- This bill will impose strict penalties for smugglers who engage in high-speed chases near the border.
- This comes as Democrats begin to break from President Biden, who is neglecting the border crisis.
