Democrats ‘use immigrants as props’

On Wednesday’s show of FNC’s “Fox News @ Night,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) criticized elected Democrats for failing to respond to the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Texas Republican lawmaker took issue with critics of Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX), who are upset over the transport of illegal immigrants to Washington, D.C.

According to Roy, it was the Democrats who used immigrants “as props.”

“Well, that’s pretty rich coming from Democrats who use immigrants as props for their own crass political goals,” he said. “While migrants are abused, trafficked into the sex trade, while cartels grow stronger, while Texans get run over? That’s all the Democrats thing – using immigrants as props. Now, here, you have Governor Abbott, regularly trying to draw attention to what is really going on in Texas, while Democrats like Senator Murphy and other Democrats ignore him.

“And Governor Abbott is trying to do the job that the President of the United States and Secretary Mayorkas are supposed to do,” Roy continued. “And so, you know, I’m glad the governor is bringing attention to that.” I’m glad the governor is bringing attention to what we’re up against by having vehicle inspections and getting people to wake up to what’s happening at our border. But let’s be clear, tomorrow there will be another 7,000 or 8,000 people crossing our border.

“And so the only metric that I’m going to assess anybody on how well this works is whether or not we stop the flow of traffic at the border and secure our border for Texans and for Americans so that we let’s not have fentanyl pouring into our schools and people being abused and hurt, whether they are migrants or Americans,” he added.
