Democratic senator reveals 'people we care about most' are 'undocumented Americans' in US

 Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said Wednesday that the Democratic Party's push for a path to citizenship in the border law has failed the people in this country they "care about most," undocumented Americans. "

MSNBC host Chris Hayes asked Murphy about the border security bill and said, instead of pushing for a path to citizenship in border law negotiations like the party has in the past, Democrats were using Ukraine funding.

“Well, I mean, Chris, it's been a failed play for 20 years. So you're right that this has been the Democratic strategy for 30 years, and it's failed to work for the people we care about most. Care about the undocumented Americans who are in this country,” Murphy said.

"It's not even 2013 anymore, when we last ran that play. At that time, there were a few hundred people showing up every day applying for asylum. Today, some days, there are 8,000 people. And the reality is that "This country believes this is not right or sustainable and wants us to change the reality at the border," the Democratic senator said.

Murphy said there was a temptation among Democrats to "run the same drama" they always run, but he said they have a responsibility to adjust to what the country wants, because that drama is not working.

“Now this bill still has some very important things for migrant rights, including the right to representation and earlier work permits and the biggest expansion of visas in 30 years. It's not a path to citizenship, but it's a way for people What's important is he really cares about migrants," he continued.

He said it didn't matter, because the GOP was "allergic" to passing border legislation.

Hayes asked Murphy if he was "proud" of the bill he introduced and wondered if he believed it would make things better at the southern border.

"I think right now you're seeing the issue of migration around the world taking over left-wing and center-left governments. I think we're at the point where if we don't bring some sense of order to the border, So if we don't make a big advance on reforming the asylum system, we're going to have a very hard time maintaining a consensus in this country that we should keep legal immigration pathways alive,'' Murphy responded during his media appearance. .

“And so, I believe this is a moment where you have to show some huge bipartisan momentum and progress at the border, otherwise you will never have the ability to try to protect undocumented Americans who need help. is desperately needed," he added.

Senate Republicans criticized the bill and argued that it would not solve the border crisis.

"I have reviewed the bill, I do not think it will solve our border crisis, and may make it worse. I will oppose it," Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., posted on social media Monday. "The bill gives Secretary Mayorkas the authority to grant asylum claims (and thus U.S. citizenship) to illegal aliens at the border without review by immigration courts for the first time, which would be a blatant path to rubber-stamping amnesty."

Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., called the bill "another Ukraine aid package that weakly addresses Biden's border crisis."

"I will vote 'No'," he wrote on Twitter.

  1. Treason. Pure and simple. He is giving support under the color of law for criminals who are INVADING America. And why are so many Dems supporting the illegal open border policy? Because the millions of foreign invaders from mostly South and Central America give camouflage and cover for the tens of thousands of military age young men from China. Did I say "military age"? Ooops! I meant to "military men in sleeper cells for terrorist acts".
