A House Democrat is blasting President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for the havoc the illegal immigration crisis is causing in his Texas border district, slamming the administration for shying away from “uncomfortable” but effective policies.
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) made his remarks during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday, where he slammed the Biden administration for creating “incentives” for illegal migration to the US.
“Surely the incentives are there for the smugglers to keep trying to get people over here, they make $6,000 to $8,000 per person,” Cuellar said, explaining how the crisis was worsening with time.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s drugs or people. [Smugglers] make over the years billions of dollars, and we have to understand that if we don’t take this incentive away and address both the push factors and the pull factors, we’re going to keep talking about this year after year.”
