Sen. John Kennedy, (R-LA) attacked Joe Biden over the border crisis, warning he has “lied” to the American people as migrant encounters surge to record levels.
Fox News reports:
Kennedy joined “The Faulkner Focus” on Tuesday to discuss the latest on the migrant surge, saying Biden has “opened” the borders and “lied” about the issue.
“… Biden talks a lot about democracy, as we should,” Sen. Kennedy told host Harris Faulkner.
“Democracy depends on the mutual acceptance of rules, norms and institutions. President Biden’s southern border policy has undermined that principle. He has completely opened the southern border, and he has looked the American people in the eye, and he has lied and said the border’s closed.”
“They don’t like being treated like a moron,” he continued. “They don’t like [Biden] lying to them, and when they call the president out, they don’t like the president calling them Nazis and racists.”
“What I’ve learned is that we have no idea who’s coming into this country,” Faulkner added. “If our Border Patrol agents weren’t there, if our National Guard was not there, if Texas had not spent nearly $1,000,000,000 so far on its operation to help its own citizens, where would we be?”
