Some Democrat lawmakers and immigration activists hammered U.S. President Joe Biden’s approach to the border crisis by wasting valuable time on determining the long-term root causes of migration rather than dealing with the problem now.
Biden has been reaching out to Congress members, staffers, and activists to push a narrative that the problem at the U.S. border is mainly former President Donald Trump’s fault in combination with the “root causes” of migration in Central America, Politico reported Saturday.
However, some Democrat lawmakers assert that the government is already fully conscious of what attracts people to America after looking into the issue for decades.
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) welcomed Biden’s effort to address long-term causes of migration surge with combating root causes of migration but stressed that the U.S. also needs a solution for the problem afflicting the border now.
