Dem lawmaker says Biden’s listening to political activists instead of border communities
Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) said that President Joe Biden is only listening to “immigration activists” on the issue and ignoring the perspective of border communities.
Cuellar voiced his frustration on The Brian Kilmeade Show.
“The bottom line is I supported Joe Biden for president,” Cuellar said. “He was the most centrist candidate running, but the problem, in my opinion, is that he has surrounded himself, at least on the immigration issue, with people that have backgrounds in — I would call them immigration activists — and they’re giving their perspective, and the problem is that’s only one perspective. What about the perspective of the border communities?”
“And most importantly,” Cuellar continued. “They’re not listening to the men and women in green and blue. Somebody has to have their back and when you have the political people that are giving advice to the administration, that is only one-sided.”
