Democrats are keeping the southern border insecure for political gain, experts warn



"The hard left that controls the Democratic Party today is okay with rigging elections," Congressman Andy Biggs said.

Republicans and several border patrol experts say that President Joe Biden's open border policies are politically motivated and are an attempt to get more voters for the 2024 election.

"It's part of what the Democrats want," Congressman Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., said on a joint AMAC and Just the News Special aired on Real America's Voice. "The hard left that controls the Democratic Party today is okay with rigging elections. That's one more way to rig an election."

Non-citizens are allowed to vote in Washington, D.C., despite GOP efforts to try to stop it. The Committee on House Administration passed a bill in May that requires proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote nationally in an effort to prevent noncitizens from voting in federal elections. That bill hasn't made it to the Senate yet.

The Safeguard American Voter Eligibility Act or SAVE Act passed the committee 6-1.

Congressman Brian Babin, R-Texas, said in a previous "Just the News, No Noise" TV interview that this bill is important because illegal immigrants voting in elections could have a tremendous impact.

"This could throw the election. When you've had the sheer numbers of people coming over the border illegally – we think anywhere from 10 to maybe 12 or 14 million people – if you just had just a few, one or two percent, you could actually throw this election and it would be decided by illegal aliens," he said.

Former Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf says that it is a concern that non-citizens are influencing a process in which American citizens practice their right to vote.

"These are not US citizens and yet they're influencing a process that allows for a vote in the United States Congress [and] in this case and the House," he said. "And so I think most people would say that's wrong, and the majority of Americans would say we shouldn't be doing that." With multiple people coming across the southern border, Wolf expressed his frustrations with the Biden administration for refusing to take responsibility.

"For the last three years, this administration has first denied that there was ever a crisis along the border and then tried to blame everyone but themselves and everyone but their own policies that actually caused this crisis," he said.

More than 189,000 immigrants arrived at the southern border just in the month of February, according to the CBP.

Vice President of the National Border Council Art Del Cueto said Thursday that Biden's recent border executive order is putting more unaccompanied migrant children in danger.

"What it's actually doing is it's allowing the exemption of the unaccompanied juveniles to explode even more so on our southern border," he said on the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show.

President Joe Biden recently issued an executive order to crack down on illegal immigration, which was met with backlash from Republican lawmakers, and even some far-left lawmakers on the other side of the aisle.

Biden said that his executive order will "bar migrants who cross our southern border unlawfully from receiving asylum ... unless they seek it after entering through an established lawful process."

One legal pathway includes making an appointment through the CBP One app at a port of entry to make an asylum claim then, Biden said.
