According to this article on Border Report, by Julian Resendiz

“EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) – He represents half of El Paso County and 40 percent of the U.S.-Mexico border in Congress. Yet U.S. Rep. Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, was noticeably absent when President Biden stepped off Air Force One in El Paso on Sunday to be briefed on the migrant crisis.

By contrast, Democratic House members Veronica Escobar, Henry Cuellar and Vicente Gonzalez – who also represent border districts in Texas – flew in with the president

“He was going to visit the district. I reached out to the team and said, ‘Hey, I want to be part of the visit…,’ and they essentially ghosted me,” Gonzales told Fox News Radio. “I don’t give a damn about being on Air Force One. I don’t care about pictures. I would have met him on the tarmac, I would have joined the motorcade, whatever. (I wanted) 5 minutes to have a conversation.””

According to this article on Associated Press, by STEPHEN GROVES

“WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans for months have railed against the Biden administration’s handling of the U.S. border with Mexico, holding hearings, visiting border communities and promising to advance legislation to clamp down on illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

But so far, they have failed to unify behind a plan, delaying efforts to pass legislation.

Now they are hoping to change that. Republicans on Wednesday jump-started work on an immigration and border enforcement package that would remake immigration law to make it more difficult to apply for asylum and easier for the federal government to stop migrants from entering the U.S. It combines proposals from a number of conservative hardliners into a single bill.”

Fifty-eight percent of voters in seven key Electoral College battleground states disapprove of how the president is handling immigration, compared with 32 percent who approve, according to a new swing-state poll from Global Strategy Group first shared with POLITICO. And a majority of voters surveyed, at 52 percent, believe Biden is ignoring problems at the border, while 50 percent said the president is ignoring the situation around undocumented immigrants.”

Senior Democrat Urges Executive Actions From Biden on Immigration

Published

on

According to this article on The New York Times, by Eileen Sullivan

“WASHINGTON — Senator Bob Menendez, one of the loudest and most powerful Democratic critics of the Biden administration’s immigration policies, said this week that he had delivered a list of recommended executive actions to the White House to address illegal migration at the southern border in a more humane way.

The move is unusual for Mr. Menendez, a three-term Democrat from New Jersey and the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who has for years focused on immigration policy and introduced a number of bills meant to change the outdated system.

But Mr. Menendez acknowledged the reality that Congress was unlikely to pass immigration legislation soon. His decision to go public with his recommendations reflects his growing frustration that President Biden is falling short on his immigration promises.”
