A Republican representative is warning that the situation at the Southern Border has not improved and she accused President Joe Biden of being complicit in human trafficking because of it.
“This is the Where’s Waldo administration. No one can be found. No one wants to take responsibility. You have a border czar and VP Harris who has done close to nothing to stem the flow. You’ve got Secretary Mayorkas who I personally have questioned three times in congressional hearings, who has said that he thinks they’re doing a marvelous job, that the border is secure,” Florida Rep. Kat Cammack said on “Fox News Live” on Saturday.
Of course, the data that you just showed again points to the fact that no, the border is not secure, and you cannot have a secure nation unless you have secure borders. And if you don’t have secure borders, you’re not a safe, sovereign nation. And so what we have here is a crisis. It’s a border crisis, as we’ve all seen throughout the year. And what this administration has done is turn every town in America into a border town,” the representative said.
“I think at the end of the day, when you take an oath to the United States Constitution, you have to uphold the laws on the books and border security is national security. The fundamental role of federal government is national security. If the Democrats don’t want to get along with us on that, then that’s on them. But when we have the majority, we will be passing this legislation, sending it to the president’s desk. And if he chooses to veto it, then that is on his hands. We know that he is a trafficker in chief. He is leading the trafficking cycle for these cartels,” she said.
The representative has made news this past week as, in another interview, she said that some Democrats could be headed to prison if the Republicans win the House in 2022, Breitbart News reported.
“When we take the House back in the 118th, first and foremost, we are going to be focused on accountability, people need to go to jail,” she said at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest in Phoenix, Arizona.
“I’m talking about the Hillary Clintons of the world, I’m talking about the Eric Holders, I’m talking about all these people who have continued to cause strife and division, break the law, subvert the Rule of Law, and they have never been held accountable,” the congresswoman said.
“We’re going to go after the origins of COVID-19, we’re going to be looking at how we can earn the trust of the American people back,” she said. “Because for so long, there has been two standards: one for thee, and then rules for the other people that don’t have power, that aren’t well-connected.”
She said she wants the new Congress to investigate election integrity and other issues including “all of the issues we’ve had in years past that have gone unresolved, like Benghazi.”
“With Afghanistan now, that’s going to be another one,” she said.
She said that the plan is for Republicans to have an agenda that “that every single Republican will be running on, campaigning on, and committing to putting that agenda forward.”
“And once we take the House, we roll hard on executing that plan, because the American people they deserve accountability, and they deserve action,” she said. “And those are the two things that we’re going to be giving when we take over the House.”
House Minority Leader and California Rep. Kevin McCarthy also said in December that there would be payback for Democrats if Republicans get control of the House again in the 2022 midterms, as Newsmax reported.
…[McCarthy] is not only preparing to turn the tables on the majority in the 2022 midterm elections, but he is also beefing up efforts for subsequent retribution for Democrats hunting down the Trump administration officials in investigations.
He is planning “preservation notices” for President Joe Biden’s Cabinet, which instructs them to save communications and documents for future oversight in Congress.
“The investigations will not be able to be carried out in a Democrat-led Congress, but in the event Republicans take over, McCarthy’s preservation notices to the Biden administration might prove fruitful to spur probes of Democrats like they have conducted of the Trump administration, including the Mueller Report, Ukraine, COVID-19, and Jan. 6,” Newsmax added, citing a report in Axios.
