‘A Crisis This Big…Cannot Be Ignored’: Ex-Democrat Senator Leading Bipartisan Group To The Border | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Amanda Prestigiacomo.

    Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is organizing a group of Republican and Democrat senators to head to the southern border to examine the nation's immigration system.

    This is one of the biggest moves Sinema has made since ditching her Democrat affiliation to become an Independent.

    "Part of the problem is that many in Washington have never taken the time to really see our border up close," Sinema said Tuesday, according to The Hill. "Without seeing it for all of its diversity and its challenges, it can be easy to rely on the partisan talking points instead of focusing on the meaningful, realistic solutions."

    Sinema is working with Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) to pull together senators "who are willing and committed to get something done" on immigration. The trip is expected to take place in January.

    "We're gonna see what Arizonans see every day because a crisis this big should not and cannot be ignored," the senator added.

    Border Patrol has been overwhelmed with incoming migrants during the Biden presidency. It's estimated that nearly 8,000 migrants enter the U.S. each day, according to data obtained by NBC in September - and the crisis is expected to worsen if Title 42 ends. The measure, enacted under former President Donald Trump, allows the U.S. to immediately expel migrants on the basis of public health, specifically over COVID-19 concerns.

    The Biden administration wants the measure to end, but the Supreme Court on Monday blocked the scheduled lifting of the policy, The Daily Wire reported.

    Sinema, who has routinely bucked the Democratic line, announced earlier this month in a guest column for the Arizona Republic that she was leaving the Democratic Party.

    "Everyday Americans are increasingly left behind by national parties' rigid partisanship, which has hardened in recent years," the senator wrote. "Pressures in both parties pull leaders to the edges, allowing the loudest, most extreme voices to determine their respective parties' priorities and expecting the rest of us to fall in line."

    "In catering to the fringes, neither party has demonstrated much tolerance for diversity of thought," Sinema continued. "Bipartisan compromise is seen as a rarely acceptable last resort, rather than the best way to achieve lasting progress. Payback against the opposition party has replaced thoughtful legislating."

    Soon after her switch, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) slammed Sinema as a "corporate Democrat" only looking out for her own political future.

    "I think the Democrats there are not all that enthusiastic about somebody who helped sabotage some of the most important legislation that protects the interests of working families and voting rights and so forth. So, I think it really has to do with her political aspirations for the future in Arizona," Sanders said on CNN.

    "She is a corporate Democrat who has, in fact, along with [West Virginia Democratic] Senator [Joe] Manchin, sabotaged enormously important legislation," he added.

  January 6th Riot or "Armed Insurrection", depending upon patriotic perspective
  Joe Biden as Divisive Leader; Ineffective and Corrupt Executive
  Failed Education Industry, from an overall perspective, regarding all levels of education.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
