White House Hopelessly Redirects Border Blame At Republicans

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas this week became the first cabinet member impeached since the infamous War Secretary William Belknap’s embarrassment in 1876. Needless to say, the Biden White House is furious over being held accountable for its border follies.

The Democrat released a rambling statement that even attempted to blame Republicans for the illegal migrant crisis.

It claimed that history will take an unfavorable view of “House Republicans for their blatant act of unconstitutional partisanship that has targeted an honorable public servant in order to play petty political games.”

As if millions of unvetted illegal migrants pouring into the nation is a “petty political game.”

The statement attributed to the president recounted that Mayorkas entered the U.S. as a Cuban refugee. It claimed the secretary exhibited a “deep commitment” to values that are the nation’s bedrock.

Then Biden made the predictable turn toward blaming the GOP for his own border mess. He accused his political opponents of “rejecting bipartisan plans Secretary Mayorkas and others in my administration have worked hard on to strengthen border security.”

Those are the plans true conservatives rejected out of hand for allowing the invasion to continue unabated.

Meanwhile, these same conservatives are celebrating the successful impeachment of Mayorkas. This remarkably came after the first effort in previous days went down in flames as three Republicans joined all Democrats to protect the embattled secretary.

But House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) heroically returned to Washington after being absent for last week’s impeachment vote while undergoing cancer treatment.

His vote proved to be the deciding factor in the 214-213 decision.

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre continued the Biden charge against Republicans. The mouthpiece said the GOP should engage in “serious work,” and the Mayorkas impeachment “is not it.”

Lost in all the Democratic mudslinging is the fact that the nation’s southern border continues to be overrun by a record number of illegal migrants. According to Customs and Border Protection sources, encounters are up 10% so far this fiscal year over last year’s record total.
