‘They are not blocking the Haitians anymore than blocking everyone else’
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton weighed on the Biden administration stopping 15,000 Haitian immigrants camping under a bridge at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Paxton said the current crisis was down to Joe Biden‘s messaging “from day one,” they are welcome to come to the border.
During an interview on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” host Steve Doocy asked:
“We just heard from the secretary, who said we sent a very clear message the border is not open. And, yet, that’s not the message they are getting, is it?”
“No,” Paxton replied.
“And that is not the message they have sent. From day one, President Biden said you’re welcome to come here. We will not deport you.”
“And that message was sent loud and clear, and Haitians have been given special protection. They are not being deported, the ones that are already here.”
“So, the administration has even told them, you know, the ones that are here we are not deporting, so that message has gotten through.”
“And that’s why you see that picture on the border with thousands of people waiting to get in.”
“I mean, there is a reason that the Haitians are here. He invited them by giving them that special protection and that message got sent through their community, and that’s why you saw so many show up so quickly.”
“That’s the type of message he has been sending since day one of his administration.”
Paxton said the border crisis is “exactly” what Biden wants.
“They are not blocking the Haitians anymore than blocking everyone else,” he argued.
“They want illegal immigration. They want what that brings, and it’s clear from what their actions are that that’s true.”
“My guess is this is exactly what the Biden administration wants,” Paxton concluded.
Meanwhile, Biden enjoyed a bike ride near a Delaware beach Sunday as the border crisis rages on.
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott was forced to send in Texas law enforcement officials to deal with the crisis.
The move comes after the Biden administration repeatedly failed to stop tens of thousands of migrants from entering the United States illegally.
“The Texas Department of Public Safety is in full force along the border around the Del Rio area,” Governor Abbott said in a tweet.
