The left’s heads would probably pop off if they didn’t contradict, twist an issue to favor themselves or block anything that could’ve possibly come from the right side of the aisle or ideological spectrum.

According to the Washington Examiner, Senate Democrats voted against a measure on Wednesday, essentially blocking the effort to restart construction on the wall at the southern border to try and curb the illegal immigration crisis.

The Examiner reported:

Lawmakers voted to reject a provision, 48-49, authored by Republican Sen. Ron Johnson that would have prevented the federal government from canceling construction contracts to build the border wall and implement other border security measures.

Johnson offered the provision as an amendment to a $1.2 trillion infrastructure measure the Senate is aiming to pass by next week.

President Joe Biden canceled the construction of the border wall when he took office in January.

Isn’t a border wall part of the infrastructure of the U.S.? What else is a more perfect example of infrastructure if not a measure to try and secure the border of a nation? I mean, that’s basic.

Johnson (R-Wis.) placed blame for the border crisis squarely at the feet of Biden and his regime.

“This administration is in a complete state of denial regarding the crisis that is on the border,” Johnson said. “President Biden is the root cause of this crisis.”

It’s been over four months since Biden put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of overseeing the crisis at the border, with very little being to curb the influx of illegal immigrants since that appointment.
