Escobar: We Need ‘More Urgency’ from White House at the Border

Escobar: We Need ‘More Urgency’ from White House at the Border

December 21, 2022

Wednesday on MSNBC’s José Díaz-Balart Reports, Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) said President Biden should “absolutely” be at the U.S.-Mexico border as a surge of migrants is causing a crisis.

Díaz-Balart said, “I see the urgency of the NGOs, I see the Red Cross, the plane that brought me here was filled with Red Cross volunteers, I see local officials here, I see National Guard, I just don’t see urgency by the federal government. Am I wrong. Where’s FEMA? Where are the organizations? Where are the people just knowing that these are men, women, and children who are asking for asylum, the legal right to ask for asylum, the legal right to ask for asylum? I don’t see it.”

Escobar said, “I share your feeling of frustration and the need for more urgency and I want to see that starting with the White House. I would like to see more direct engagement…”

Díaz-Balart said, “Should the president be here, do you think?”

Escobar replied, ‘I think absolutely the president should be here, and I think everyone should be here, but more importantly than the president actually being here, I want Congress to act. I would like the State Department to be even more robustly engaged on this western hemispheric issue because this is going to take a lot of work. It’s going to take legislation.”

There’s no federal urgency because the Biden administration wants an open southern border. It wants the chaos and the surges of illegals. How else are Democrats going to win future elections without flooding the country with likely Democrat voters?
