Sen. Tom Carper (D-DE) appeared on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports" to explain his Party's strategy for dealing with the surge of illegal immigration.
"Republicans call this a border crisis," Carper said. "The truth is that it's not the border that is the source of the crisis. This crisis is in the countries these migrants are coming from. The willingness to undertake a long, grueling and dangerous journey stems from the appalling conditions in these migrants' home countries. These countries are places of crime, violence, corruption, and lack of economic opportunity and hope. Closing the border and deporting these refugees doesn't neutralize the disparities that are the root causes of illegal border crossings."
"Well, President Biden and the Democratic Party have a comprehensive strategy for addressing the root causes," Carper asserted. "The components of our strategy include measures that directly strike at the differences between the United States and these hellhole countries. It is the Democratic Party that has embraced the defunding of police in our urban areas. We are already seeing impressive results. In the last year murders have risen to heights not seen in decades. It is the Democratic Party that supports massive federal stimulus payments of which almost $400 billion has been stolen. It is the Democratic Party that has most vigorously imposed lockdowns that have crushed tens of thousands of small businesses and destroyed the jobs of millions of workers. It is the Democratic Party that has fired up the fear and panic of COVID that has fueled a remarkable decline in the optimism and hope that have characterized this country for more than 200 years."
"Is it not clear that we have made significant progress in decreasing the incentive for people to come here?" Carper asked. "It was Trump's effort to make America great that stimulated the flow of people from the hellhole nations to our borders. Step-by-step and day-by-day the Democratic Party in the federal, state and local governments are leveling the playing field between here and there. Vice-President Harris' recent visit south of the border was an initial effort to communicate the message of America's decline. Once this message is understood the whole reason for migrating to this country will be negated. Latinos will see that America is just as corrupt, violent, and hopeless as their homelands and migration will slow to a trickle."
