“our nation’s front door” – signaling the Biden-Harris door is wide open to illegal migration
During Kamala Harris’ long overdue visit to the border on Friday, Texas Democrat Rep. Veronica Escobar said the quiet part out loud, calling El Paso “the new Ellis Island.”
A little over a week ago, Kamala told migrants “do not come.” Now Escobar is standing next to Harris comparing our southern border to a welcoming station.
Jeremy Beaman reports at the Washington Examiner:
Democratic representative calls El Paso ‘the new Ellis Island’
A Texas Democrat referred to El Paso, Texas, as “the new Ellis Island” as she accompanied Vice President Kamala Harris to the southern border on Friday.
“Welcome to El Paso, welcome to my community, to the new Ellis Island, to the capital of the border,” said Rep. Veronica Escobar, who represents Texas’s 16th Congressional District, which encompasses El Paso.
Escobar went on to express a “heart full of gratitude” to Harris and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for their approach to Central American migration at the border.
Escobar went on to describe the southern border as “our nation’s front door.” Wouldn’t most people describe illegally crossing the border as sneaking in through the back door?

Do Democrats have any idea how bad this sounds?
"The New Ellis Island." Democrats aren't even hiding it anymore. They're inviting people to come illegally and continuing the Biden administration trend of America Last. pic.twitter.com/Nbl9TXKzRk

Memo to Democrats: El Paso is not Ellis Island. Not even a little.

“The new Ellis Island”? Really?!? If one is truly trying to secure our border, this is Exhibit A of exactly what not to say. The Democrats keep tripping over themselves racing towards open border policies and rhetoric. pic.twitter.com/gMa1gctmRK

This is the same woman who in March, accused Texas Republicans of using the border as a prop.
The Insider reported:
Rep. Veronica Escobar says that Texas Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn are using the southern border ‘as a prop’
Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar of Texas said in a recent Daily Beast podcast interview that a southern border tour held last Friday by GOP Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn was simply “political theater.”
During an episode of “The New Abnormal” featuring editor-at-large Molly Jong-Fast, Escobar lamented that immigration has been politicized to a point where crafting real solutions has been absent from the debate.
“I think there are 18 senators that are parachuting into Texas and that delegation is led by John Cornyn and Ted Cruz,” she said. “These are people who are about to engage in political theater, use the border as a prop, [and] do a whole lot of complaining and finger-pointing. But these are the same people who’ve been in the Senate for a number of years.”
Escobar’s words on Friday speak volumes. Democrats do not view what’s happening at the border as a crisis. They see it as a plus.
