Biden Says Republican Officials Shouldn’t Interfere With His Immigration Policies

Sep 19, 2022 | Political News

President Joe Biden doesn’t want Republican officials interfering with his immigration policies, saying their initiative to send people north from the border is “playing politics” and “un-American.”

Speaking at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute gala in Washington, D.C., Thursday night, he said, “Instead of working with us on solutions, Republicans are playing politics with human beings using them as props. What they are doing is simply wrong. It’s un-American. It’s reckless.”

He didn’t mention any governors by name but made the remarks after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott sent two buses to Vice President Kamala Harris’ Washington, D.C. residence after she made remarks on Sunday that “the border is secure.”

They also came after Abbott bused more than 10,000 people to Washington, D.C., New York City, and Chicago and after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis flew people who’d illegally entered the U.S. and arrived in Florida to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts.
