Dem Senator Admits Border Crisis, Says Biden Can’t Be Stopped

Senate Majority Whip Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) has finally admitted that there is a crisis at the U.S. southern border. 

The lawmaker, while speaking on Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” said that there has to be a new process at the border that solves the crisis. 

 “I agree that we have to have a new process at the border, which brings order to the situation, which has been overwhelmed by the numbers of refugees from all over the world,” Durbin said. “That has to be done. But it has to be done thoughtfully.”

President Joe Biden has come under heavy criticism over his handling of the border. Despite the criticism, Durbin maintained that Biden must be allowed to let people come in.

“The idea of eliminating what’s known as parole —the president’s authority to allow people to come to this country— is absolutely unacceptable to me,” Durbin added. “The emergency situations like Ukraine make parole absolutely essential in times with those dire situations. And I would just say, my biggest concern is, there are people sitting at that table negotiating who are opposed to any new immigration in America.”

Durbin’s remarks come after his Senate counterpart, Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), stated that President Biden’s border weakness could lead to several 9/11-style attacks on America. 

Tuberville, while speaking on Monday’s broadcast of Newsmax TV’s The Balance,” insisted that Biden’s failure to secure the border in the wake of Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel means the country could suffer a 9/11 attack every few weeks.

“We’re gonna have a 9/11 attack every few weeks if we don’t watch it. It is out of control,” Tuberville said. “But this group (the Biden administration) could care less. You know, being a senator, you know, I’m not a senator. I was an educator and I’m up here watching what’s going on and I’m thinking, you know, who cares? Who cares about the American people? Who cares about the taxpayers of this country? I can’t find anybody on both sides of the aisle. It’s about spending damn money and I’m sick of it.
