Crenshaw Says Biden And Harris ‘Like’ Border Crisis – ‘That’s Why They Don’t Want To Solve It’

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) went on Fox News on Monday to slam President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for the border crisis that remains ongoing on the U.S. border with Mexico.

Crenshaw went so far as to say that he thinks the two of them “like” having the crisis, which is “why they don’t want to solve it,” adding that it is “pretty obvious” that Harris does not care about the issue and that her recent trip to the border was for a “quick photo op.”

Crenshaw Sounds Off

“It’s pretty obvious Kamala Harris does not care about this issue,” Crenshaw said. “I think it’s rather obvious she only went to visit where there was a convenient airport, where she could do a quick photo op, say she did it because she was sick of getting made fun of by conservative media that she never went, but she’s not going to actually take any action.”

“Look, when it comes to these facilities, they are overcrowded, they are overwhelmed, and we could wring our hands trying to figure out what to do with that, but we don’t have new ones just to build right off the bat, so we have to look at the source of the problem,” he added.

“And the source of the problem is the Biden administration because they reversed policies that were in place that was limiting the flow,” Crenshaw continued. “OK, they reversed the Remain in Mexico policy, they reversed asylum cooperation agreements with the Northern Triangle countries, and they refuse to tackle the biggest issue.”

Crenshaw Doubles Down

“And the biggest issue is that we can’t legally hold migrant families or minors past 21 days, so we can’t adjudicate these claims,” he stated. “This would be the simplest fix, and it has to be a legislative fix. ”

“It has to come from Congress, and all we have to do is increase that number of days, increase the number of immigration judges, adjudicate these claims, make the process go faster. You know what that avoids?” Crenshaw said. “It avoids this catch and release program, which means that there’s less incentives to just jump across the border.”

“This stuff is easy to fix, and I think that’s why it’s so infuriating that the Democrats don’t want to. And you have to question their motives here,” he concluded. “Why don’t they want to? Well, they want more illegal immigration. OK, they like the crisis. That’s why they don’t want to solve it. There’s really no other way to explain this.”

  • What you call a mess Americans call managing the border and not trying to sweep the illegality involved contrived by scheming political lawyers to let anyone and everyone in the USA as a matter of changing political demographics. And they do this while citing manmade pollution, overpopulation a most important issue? At the same time they seek to flood this nation with a voting group indebted to their masters in the DNC. San Fran recently lost many of its Target franchises a result of organized theft rings, and it costs about 35-50 million dollars a year to keep the streets hygienically clean from all the discarded user needles even in front of City Hall with LA not far behind. When you can come up with a good reason why Americans should fund multiple government programs to subsidize these people in the USA and solve that problem then maybe opening the floodgates might make some kind of socialist sense but the only cause to do so today is to grow the funding of the DNC so it can rebuild shyte holes like Portland it helped destroy in the first place, Chicago and parts of NYC that have become like mega cities on the lateral where government services are bound to fail and the drug cartels take over entire neighborhoods run by a "Don".

  • Nothing clever there, nor true. Most of these people racing toward our borders did not even start coming here until during the debates Biden and Harris said they would open the borders and welcome all to enter. Democrats did this for only one reason, VOTES. Biden is now allowing more drugs, criminals and terrorists in then have ever crossed our borders. They brag about how many they are catching, yet border guards in mass say they are catching a very small amount that are coming in, because they are tied up with the illegal immigrants. There are now many times over the backlog then there was. There are more displaced and separated families. There are many more children sleeping and not knowing where they will be or sleeping next, many times outside and on the ground. Democrats way of solving this embarrassing situation, wait months then send Harris, who did not really go to the border, nor ask any border officials how to correct this inhuman mess. Walk away, no see, no hear, no speak.

  • The fentanyl tragedy is merely "collateral damage" in the Democrat march to permanent one-party rule.

  • Bingo for Rep. Crenshaw!
    For the Left, the open border is not a crisis; it is an opportunity....to establish as one-party nation. Skip the Constitution. They intend to rule the USSA (United Socialist States of America).

  • It's correct to blame the surge at our southern border on Biden's administration. Trump was doing somethings to slow it down despite constant opposition from dems. However the republicans didn't help him enough. His first two years they had the House and Senate. Didn't do a dam thing to stop illegals.
    It would be easy to turn this around. Go to war with the cartels. Build the rest of the wall. Re-institute Trumps other meaures. Then clean up the corruption in the countries in Central America....dream on. We can't even address our own corruption.

  • It's great to see someone take leadership on the preservation of America's borders and national identity thank you Congressman Crenshaw. If the Democrats and socialists believe this is such a big deal then where is Kamala? Has she been in an LV house of ill repute earning more campaign funds?

  • WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO DEMAND IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) we’ve had countless opportunities to fixed the nightmare of having Biden & Harris and sadly we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely MENTALLY UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code §2381 TREASON, 18 U.S. Code §2382 SEDITION, 18 U.S. Code §2384 Seditious Conspiracy Crimes against Humanity and Subversive Activities. 

    HARRIS is guilty of violating 18 US Code §2381 Treason, 18 US Code §2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code §2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code §2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE §2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

    Democrats want to legalize anarchy and ban law and order!

    Copy and paste this info into an E-Mail and send to friends & family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls & forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  • The point of view claiming that the Democrats "like" the border problems are bunk. The Trump administration really slowed procedures down at the border, creating unimaginable backlogs and separating families, and Democrats are left with cleaning up the mess. It's great that Democrats are back in power. It's a shame that we have to untangle the snarls in the wires the Republicans purposely put there.
