It’s not new to hurl insults at political rivals. The practice is as old as the politics themselves. However, when a Democrat-turned-Republican congressman calls the Biden administration “the worst administration in the history of the United States of America,” that’s newsworthy in my book.
You won’t find it on CNN, MSNBC, or The New York Times.
In an appearance on Fox & Friends on Friday, New Jersey Rep. Jeff Van Drew blasted Joe Biden’s policy regarding border security after it was reported that the Obama administration had reportedly given Mayor Eric Adams of New York City a list with locations to relocate illegal immigrants, which included the Atlantic City International Airport in New Jersey, located in Van Drew’s district.
Van Drew promised to fight against the plan with “every ounce of strength.”
Van Drew stated that he hoped it wouldn’t occur, but what if it did?
We will fight it with all our strength. This is wrong. When we said that what happened at the southern border would affect the whole United States of America this is what happened. I want people out there to listen.
It is not just a problem in Arizona, Texas, or California. This is an issue that affects the United States of America. Now they want to invade our beautiful county in South Jersey and ruin it.
Van Drew also said that the Biden Border Crisis, which was intentionally caused by Biden, poses a threat to national security.
This is also a matter of national defense. It’s important to grasp this issue. There is an FAA Technical Center that does very important work. Some of it is extremely significant for the safety and flight of the country.
We also have F-16s in the Air National Guard 177 Fighter Wing as part of our defense. They are Washington, D.C., as well as New York City’s first line of defense.
This is an impending disaster. This is the worst government I’ve ever seen. I used to say in my lifetime. This is the worst government in American history.
Here is some background information on the proposal of the administration:
The Biden Administration has made some suggestions about where New York City could house some of the asylum seekers who have recently arrived. These include a facility that is closer to Montreal than Manhattan; a Long Island tax office, or Atlantic City International Airport.
According to a source with knowledge of the discussion who requested anonymity, these sites were on a list of eleven federally-owned facilities that the US Department of Homeland Security sent to Mayor Eric Adams as potential locations to relocate migrants.
New York Governor is under pressure. Kathy Hochul’s office made reference to a statement that she recently made:
We will not and cannot force migrants to move into other areas of the state.
CNN, MSNBC, and The New York Times did not respond to requests for comment.
Isn’t funny how Democrats get all hysterical when illegal aliens arrive on their doorstep but then smugly criticize governors, and local and state officials in states with border towns overrun by illegals?
The Democrat party is the most hypocritical on earth.
The above fact may have been a major reason why Rep. Jeff Van Drew decided to become a Republican.
