Democrat Mayor In Texas Slams Biden Over Border Crisis: ‘It Was Working Under Trump’

Not all Democrats are remaining silent about the crisis at the southern border.

The mayor of Laredo, Texas, who is a Democrat, is not happy and is calling out Joe Biden.

He is also making the point that the situation was better under Trump.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

A Border Town’s Democratic Mayor Has Had Enough

The Democratic mayor of Laredo, Texas, slammed President Joe Biden’s immigration policy, alleging that his party has no plan to fix the southern border and has abandoned local communities in favor of massive spending proposals for other interest groups.

Mayor Pete Saenz says that for months many of his city’s public services have been forced to focus on providing humanitarian aid, medical services, and transportation for thousands of migrants who pass through Laredo. Those are jobs, he says, the federal government should handle—particularly as the Biden administration loosens immigration restrictions.

The added threat of COVID-19 has led Saenz to admit reluctantly that former president Donald Trump’s policies benefited Laredo residents.

“We need to truly secure the border,” Saenz told the Washington Free Beacon in an exclusive interview. “It was working under Trump, call it whatever you want to call it, but it was working.”

This is all having a major and negative effect on Biden’s poll numbers.

With Hispanic voters, too.

The bad news is that it’s probably going to get worse before it gets better.
