The GOP Doesn’t Give a Damn About Border Security
Give me a break.
The hot immigration debate over the last week reminded us that the GOP doesn’t give a damn about actually solving problems. Especially border security.
Conservative Republicans like James Lankford from Oklahoma has been roasting his GOP colleagues for doing Trump’s bidding, saying: “The key aspect of this, again, is are we, as Republicans, going to have press conferences and complain the border’s bad and then intentionally leave it open after the worst month in American history in December?”
Senator Mitt Romney also chimed in, calling Trump’s attempts to block immigration reform for his own campaign interests “appalling.”
Of course by now everyone should know the GOP’s words are cheaper than a Trump tie. We’ve seen them all fold under Trump’s pressure countless times before. And we mustn’t forget that Trump did next to nothing to actually combat undocumented immigration. He just made it harder for folks who are attempting to immigrate legally.
But House Speaker Mike Johnson’s response could be the worst we’ve ever seen. Johnson likes to invoke his secret conversations with God to distract from him being the biggest Trump cult member in Congress. He said the bill is a “nonstarter” before even seeing it.
Extreme MAGA Republicans can’t be trusted. They will sit down for disingenuous negotiations, only to move the goalposts to an unreasonable point, where they then act like the other party isn’t willing to compromise. It’s a stupid Trump game where everyone wins stupid Trump prizes.
The GOP fraudulently says our borders are open, but when presented with funding support for the border, the GOP refuses. All to support their cult leader Donald.
We shouldn't expect Republicans to do anything different anytime soon. Trump is campaigning with screams about an insecure border, and a bipartisan immigration bill passing won’t help his argument. He would rather make Biden look bad than actually get something done.
The GOP doesn’t care about fixing our immigration system. Everything the GOP does is a big distraction from the fact their presumptive nominee is indicted for 91 felonies in 4 different cases.
One thing is certain: The GOP only cares about Trump being in the White House again. They sure as hell don’t give a damn about America’s border security.
