Vulnerable House Dems suddenly switch views on immigration crisis

 April 20, 2024

The election is near, and suddenly, vulnerable politicians are shifting their views on hot-button political topics. Imagine that?

According to Fox News, three "vulnerable" Democrats have seemingly changed their outlook on the illegal immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border and now recognize how critically important it is that something be done about it.

Surely it can't be because their constituents overwhelmingly view the border issue as a primary concern this election, right?

All three of the Democrats -- which includes "Reps. Yadira Caraveo, D-Colo., Gabe Vasquez, D-N.M., and Eric Sorenson, D-Ill.," have voted against several border security measures in the past.

What's going on?

The three Democratic lawmakers have made their stance on the illegal immigration crisis crystal clear in the past by voting against a number of measures that would have actually helped mitigate it.

But in recent months, they've all shifted toward introducing legislation that at least sort of admits that they know it's a serious issue that their constituents care about. And in what will be tight races for all three, they'll gladly change their tunes to garner those extra votes.

Hilariously, Rep. Vasquez introduced a measure earlier this year that "condemns Republican inaction on common-sense solutions to our Nation’s broken immigration system and the challenges our Nation faces at the border."

He, like the others, voted against the Secure the Border Act of 2023, which could have had a significant impact on how illegals are handled at the southern border.

"Congressman Vasquez has always supported border security and common-sense, bipartisan immigration solutions," his office told Fox News Digital. How convenient!

The others made similar comments, swearing that they've always been for border security and control, even though they obviously have not.

"From day one"

"I have said from day one that we need to secure our southern border and stop the flow of illegal drugs that are hurting Illinois families. That is why I offered two amendments to H.R. 2 that would have added 500 additional CPB officers to patrol the southern border and brought federal agencies together on a more unified approach to stop the flow of fentanyl that is coming across," Rep. Sorensen said.

Like the others, he also blamed Republicans for the crisis.

"House GOP leadership blocked these bipartisan ideas from being considered," Sorenson said. "I have called and continue to call on House leadership to bring forward the Senate’s bipartisan border security plan, so we can secure the southern border and provide a pathway to legal status for those who follow the law."

It'll be interesting to see how many additional Democrats suddenly start caring about the immigration crisis as the poll numbers roll out over the next few months.
