Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren has checkmated the entire Democratic Party over the double standards regarding the U.S. Southern Border.
Lahren blasted the Democrats last night on Fox News hit show, “Hannity.”
As Lahren noted, Democrats have been silent on the border crises under President Joe Biden’s administration.
However, they frequently attacked President Donald Trump over border issues, even falsely linking him to the so-called “cages” that were implemented under Obama.
“Joe is either in bed, at a castle, or licking an ice cream cone telling us to go lick the world, but I would like to with the border because I’ve been there several times,” Lahren told Sean Hannity.
“We saw record lows in border crossings during the Trump Administration —because we did something.
“Democrats see these people as pawns and future voters.
“They don’t care about their well-being.
“I don’t see AOC down there hugging a fence or hugging one of Obama’s cages as she did during the Trump Administration.
“It just goes to show you how absolutely disingenuous they are about everything; from the border, to gun control to our position on the world stage —they care about none of it except climate change and rainbows.”

According to Politico:
House Republicans bashed Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas for the southern border crisis Wednesday, accusing him of “intentionally” allowing the situation to worsen under his leadership.
“You have not secured our borders, Mr. Secretary, and I believe you’ve done so intentionally,” Rep. Mark Green (R-Tenn.), chair of the Homeland Security committee, said in his opening remarks during a budget hearing on the Biden administration’s budget request for DHS.
“There is no other explanation for the systematic dismantling and transformation of our border into a lawless and dangerous open border.”
Rep. Dan Bishop (R-N.C.) said “everybody of any reasonable sensibility looks at what you have been saying and what you continue to say, and recognizes that it blinks at reality, and you know it.
You’re not delusional. But you are prepared to be dishonest with this Congress repeatedly.”
Harsh words were expected at the hearing. For months, Republicans have vocally criticized Mayorkas for his handling of the border and have called for his removal.
DHS’ bill would allow the agency to hire another 1,400 personnel to secure the border and earmark over $800 million for new technology to protect the border and fight fentanyl trafficking.
At the center of much of the debate was Mayorkas’ previous comments to Congress that the border is secure.
Republicans have charged that he lied under oath when he said that to Congress, though Mayorkas said he interprets “operational control” in a different way.
