Democrat Governor Calls On Biden To Close Border, Still Manages To Blame Republicans


Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont, a Democrat, revealed in an interview with CNBC that he offered President Biden support from his state’s national guard in order to secure the southern border. Biden rejected the offer, however, instead shifting blame for record numbers of illegal aliens streaming across the border to House Republicans.

CNBC host Andrew Ross Sorkin asked Lamont for his thoughts on the immigration crisis and the effect it is having on his state, particularly in regard to housing. “What do you think of the immigration problem in America, and do you think that blue states, which, for so long, thought this was a not in my backyard issue, now it is?” Sorkin asked.

“It’s in all of our backyards. Governor Scott from Vermont and myself just wrote a letter together, two states that you don’t think are on the frontlines of immigration, it’s hitting us. I see what it’s doing to the country,” he said. “They’ve got to secure the border. I tell President Biden, we’ll send the Connecticut Guard down to help you if that’s what you need to get it done.”

Sorkin then followed up, “And what does he tell you back?”

“We’re trying to get this bipartisan compromise. You know Congress. Things take a long time. They’ve got to get it done.”

In a separate interview with Bloomberg, Lamont called on President Biden to close the border while once again shifting blame to House Republicans.

Look, I call the Republicans bluff. You know, they’re saying, President Biden, you’re not willing to close the border? Give me the tools to do it and I will do it. I can’t figure out why they’re pulling back now, saying it’s not that much of an emergency, we’ll wait till after the next election. I think that’s the wrong move. Let’s make the deal.

President Biden and his Democrat allies have attempted to shift blame for the unprecedented surge in illegal immigration to House Republicans. He has urged them to pass the Senate’s border “deal,” which will reportedly provide work permits for thousands of illegal aliens and still allow the entry of roughly 1.8 million illegals into the country every year.

House Republicans have rejected the administration’s framing and have called on Biden to take executive action to close the border.
