Republican lawmakers say Biden is prioritizing ‘woke ideology’ over border crisis: ‘absolute failures’

Republican lawmakers on Tuesday chided President Biden for prioritizing a “woke ideology” at the expense of the southern border crisis. 

Reps. Ashley Hinson of Iowa and Jim Banks of Indiana held a press conference Tuesday to “spotlight” what they regarded as the “absolute failures of the Biden administration” regarding addressing the border.

“We need to call out these failures and their woke ideology and their misplaced priorities, especially when it comes to what’s happening at our southern border,” Hinson said, flanked by other Republican lawmakers. 

Hinson noted that illegal immigrant encounters topped more than 250,000 in December – 17 of whom were on the terror watch list, and ten of whom were sex offenders in the Del Rio Sector alone.

All this, she said, has come about as Mexican drug cartels have made billions off of fentanyl and meth that is shipped into the country and killing Americans. 

Hinson said Biden’s meeting with Mexican President Andres Manual Lopez Obrador in Mexico City earlier this month was a missed opportunity to address this crisis.
