Budd Highlights 3 Years of the Biden Border Crisis Ahead of the State of the Union

Washington, D.C. — In a speech on the Senate floor before tonight’s State of the Union Address, Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) slammed President Biden for presiding over the worst border crisis in U.S. history.

Watch Senator Budd’s speech on the Senate floor:

Key excerpts:

“President Abraham Lincoln once said that, ‘no Administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can seriously injure the government in the short space of four years.’ That statement might need to be revised if Lincoln had witnessed the first three years of President Joe Biden.”

“The crisis at the border is a crisis of President Biden’s own making. Since his first day in office, President Biden has unleashed dozens of executive actions that telegraphed that his administration was no longer interested in enforcing the law when it comes to illegal immigration.”

“What is the message this president has sent to a would-be illegal migrant? Well for one, the United States won’t construct physical barriers to stop you. We won’t even lock the door to our own house, it seems. If you’re caught, the United States will release you and resettle you with money out of our own taxpayers’ pockets. And don’t worry, the United States will never deport you. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why this crisis persists.”

“Make no mistake, President Biden already has the power to fix this. It was his executive actions that, on day one, caused this mess. And he can clean it up by undoing those orders on day 1,142.”

“We are witnessing – in real time – a national decline. But the good news is that decline is a choice, and our time for choosing is coming. It’s not too late. Despite all of the things that are broken right now, we can still be a strong nation, as long as we have a leader with the strength and willingness to get the job done.”
