Grijalva Defends Democrats’ Funding Bill, Biggs Blasts It As “Anything But” Humanitarian

On Tuesday, Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs blasted Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats for H.R. 3401, the Border Supplemental Appropriations Act.

Bigss expressed concern that if the bill were to become law, Border Patrol agents “on the front lines would further have their hands tied in trying to bring our southern border under control. This bill does nothing to secure our border, address the massive influx of illegal aliens, or close the asylum loopholes that are being exploited by criminal cartels. It is irresponsible legislation that encourages the rampant lawlessness at the border.”

Biggs accused Pelosi and Democrats of “doing nothing,” except “worsening the situation.”

Rep. Raul Grijalva was the only member of Pelosi’s caucus in Arizona to defend the bill:

“We are abandoning our Border Patrol and ICE agents and innocent Americans around the country who are affected by this crisis,” stated Biggs in a press release. “We are sacrificing our safety and sovereignty to please the open-borders special interests. This is dereliction of duty, and the American people should not stand for this bureaucratic insanity any longer. They deserve better from Washington, D.C.”

Biggs wasn’t the only Arizona lawmaker to criticize the bill.

  1. Secure the border Raul then get your money to fund the Humanitarian effort. Or do it both at the same time. We must secure the border.

  2. Never let a good crisis go to waste. Isn’t that right Democrats? You don’t care about people you care about power.
