In Brief: Democrats Are Distracting Us With ‘Infrastructure’
In doing so, says former Senator Jim DeMint, they’re keeping our attention away from the catastrophe on our southern border.
It’s diabolical, really. By promising the American people better roads and bridges, and by threatening to spend us into oblivion, the Democrats are keeping the citizenry distracted and congressional Republicans occupied while Joe Biden’s border malfeasance changes the very nature of our nation. So says former Senator Jim DeMint, who writes:
Today on America’s southern border, a crisis is threatening the future of our country’s economy, health, and rule of law. More than 1 million migrants have already been apprehended illegally crossing into the United States this year — a number that doesn’t count those the Border Patrol didn’t catch.
This crisis — which has been largely ignored by the media — falls under the clear constitutional authority of the president and Congress. And the solution, sealing the border (i.e. finish the wall), is not only obvious and popular, but would also drive up wages and create more good-paying jobs for hard-working American families.
And yet, after months of unrelenting violence and lawlessness — and a humanitarian crisis of disease, death, and the systematic abuse of women and children — Washington Democrats’ only response is to change the subject.
Democrats had hoped the brutal Mexican summer would help solve the problem of border migration, but it’s only made the matter worse. “In July,” writes DeMint, “authorities found 43 bodies rotting in the desert along Arizona’s border towns. The number of unaccompanied children along the border has more than doubled since last year. Reports of sexual assault and abuse of women and children have been rampant. Just in the last few days, Fox News reports that some detention facilities for illegal immigrants are 585 percent over capacity.”
Clearly, then, Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats have blood on their hands. And worse. DeMint continues:
In recent weeks, Biden made a terrible situation worse by simply carting busloads of illegal immigrants into American communities by the thousands, without COVID tests, without court dates, without accountability.
As the crisis has ground on, Biden’s public approval has fallen. But rather than solve the problem, he and his party have turned to another shiny object to distract the country from Democrats’ incompetence, radicalism, and corruption: the “bipartisan” infrastructure bill.
“This is not leadership or bipartisanship,” DeMint concludes. “It’s a dereliction of duty, a conspiracy of Washington elites against the American people and the country we love. This phony infrastructure bill is just a signal of where Washington and America are going under our current leadership.”
