GOP Lawmaker Says Biden’s Handling Of Immigration Is ‘Almost Criminal’
Martin Walsh July 28, 2021
Florida Republican Rep. Carlos Gimenez is calling the Biden administration’s handling of the immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border “almost criminal.”
While speaking to a reporter at a rally on Tuesday for freedom in Cuba held at the U.S. Capitol, Gimenez also said he thinks the Biden administration is releasing thousands of migrants into the U.S. in the hopes they will eventually become Democratic voters.
“That’s the problem with having an administration which says they’re centrist but they’re not really,” Gimenez said.
“They’re really far left extreme, a far-left extreme administration. People say, ‘Well, look, [Biden] talks like a centrist.’ I don’t care how the president talks. I care what the president does, and what the president is doing, especially at the southern border, is almost criminal,” he added.
“We now know that the new strain of COVID, lambda, I believe it’s called, is coming through the southern border, because they’re ravaging South America. We don’t know how potent it is. Some people say it’s more potent than the Delta variant. They say it’s more deadly than the variant and the vaccines may not work as well. … How are we allowing thousands and thousands of immigrants to flow through the southern border?” he rhetorically asked.
