Tennessee Republican Attacks Democrats for Funding Border Security in Foreign Countries But Not in the United States

On December 21, 2022, Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn criticized Democrats for funding border security in foreign nations while ignoring the situation taking place at the southern border. 

Blackburn called attention to this “double standard” on Fox News’ “America Reports”“Of course there’s a double standard. And bear in mind, places like D.C., Chicago, New York City had said we are sanctuary cities, we welcome having individuals come into our state and our city. Tennessee is not a sanctuary state. Our cities and towns are not sanctuary cities and towns and they have said, ‘No, we want the border secure,’” Blackburn said to “America Reports” hosts Sandra Smith and John Roberts. 

“This is what happens when you do not abide by the rule of law, when you do not secure your border, when you do not have a plan,” Blackburn added. “And it is unseemly that in this $1.7 trillion spending bill they want to pass today, there is money for countries to secure their borders and have enhanced border security, but the money there for the Border Patrol, it says explicitly, you cannot use this on border security.”

The $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill allocated $1,563,143,000 to United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for “operations and support.”  However, the legislation bans the use of those funds “to acquire, maintain, or extend border security technology and capabilities, except for technology and capabilities to improve Border Patrol processing.”

Such restrictions came at a time when CBP agents encountered north of 2.3 million migrants in Fiscal Year 2022. An additional 230,000 migrants were encountered by CBP agents in October — the beginning of the new fiscal year. According to a Fox News report, an additional 600,000 illegal alien invaders were able to escape CBP apprehension. 

In this legislation, several foreign nations — Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman and Tunisia — received $410 million for bolstering border security. Jordan itself received at least $150 million in funds for border security, per a Twitter post by North Carolina Congressman Dan Bishop. 

It’s abundantly clear that the American ruling class does not care about protecting the Historic American Nation. DC Swamp critters have been thoroughly consumed by the Invade the World, Invite the World mindset that prioritizes the Globalist American Empire’s foreign policy ambitions while ignoring the most prominent national security threat the US is facing — the illegal immigration Zerg Rush taking place at its southern border. 

The only way to change this mindset in DC is through a massive electoral upheaval that witnesses America First nationalists relieve neoconservative and neoliberal interventionists of the burden of holding higher office. The longer these parasites remain in office, the faster the disappearance of the Historic American Nation will be realized.
