Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin has been making waves in recent weeks. The West Virginian announced he was not running for re-election.
Instead, he might be taking steps to announce a presidential bid.
Manchin is taking off the gloves to criticize the Biden administration. He has singled out what might have been Biden’s worst decision. And he is declaring America is “sold out.”
From Daily Wire:
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) expressed exasperation during an interview over the weekend about the continually worsening conditions on the U.S. southern border…
“We are sold out,” he later added. “We are over capacity right now, and we have to control this.”
Sen. Manchin blasted the Biden administration’s seeming unwillingness to secure the Southern border. He discussed how lawmakers are scrambling to come up with a solution to this critical issue.
He stated that lawmakers are “getting closer” to passing new laws. He said this wasn’t about immigration reform, but securing the border from the millions of aliens trying to enter.
He said that the “glass ceiling” on immigration has been broken. Manchin revealed that the “whole world” is “taking advantage of a system that is truly broken.” It appears that fixing the immigration system is not the solution, but measures that will “shut down” the border.
Democrats and becoming increasingly vocal about the border crisis. That is due to them realizing their states are not immune to the situation. Blue cities are overwhelmed by the small fraction of migrants that have reached them.
Manchin explained that the “asylum” claim has been abused by many. He said that that bar is too low and that migrants need to show the U.S. proof that they are really in danger. For years, Republicans have warned the asylum system is broken.
But will lawmakers in Congress act quickly enough to end the border crisis? And will President Biden actually sign a bill that goes against what appears to be his agenda?
