Alabama’s Republican congressional delegation all voted on Wednesday to approve a resolution condemning President Joe Biden and other federal officials for creating and facilitating the massive immigration influx that continues to plague the U.S. southern border.
The lone Democratic member of Alabama’s delegation, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell (D-Birmingham), voted against the resolution.
House Resolution 957 (HR957), sponsored by U.S. Rep. Nathaniel Moran (R-Texas), passed the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday. The resolution collectively condemned “the national security and public safety crisis” it says was created by Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
HR 957 also condemns Biden’s “lax immigration enforcement policies,” which it claims have resulted in numerous “violent criminal aliens” entering the United States, an increase in human trafficking and at least 312 illegal immigrants on the terrorist watchlist encountered by border patrol.
U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) praised the passage of HR 957, calling Biden “ our Trafficker-in-Chief.”
"It's Human Trafficking Awareness Month, and there's no better time than right now for President Biden to end the policies that make him our Trafficker-in-Chief," Moore said. "Biden's open border has turned our country into a haven for drug and child traffickers, making migrant children indentured servants and putting American families at risk.”
U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) also boasted his support of the resolution as an additional method of keeping Biden accountable.
By voting for H.Res. 957, I am continuing to do all I can to hold Biden accountable for his failed policies and securing our southern border.— Rep. Jerry Carl (@RepJerryCarl) January 17, 2024
Border security is national security and this must be our number one priority.
Calling the border crisis “a national security disaster waiting to happen,” U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Saks) bashed Biden’s border policies as “moronic.”
I voted in favor of denouncing the Biden Administration’s open border. This is a national security disaster waiting to happen, and it is past time for the “commander in chief” to correct course on his moronic border policies. https://t.co/XjtAzxgler— Mike Rogers (@RepMikeRogersAL) January 17, 2024
