Sinema joins GOP senators urging shortening of asylum review
After reading that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, a committed leftist, is taking a more appropriate hard line on illegals flooding across Arizona’s southern border, checking out her voting record made sense.
It turns out, though her views are consistently far left, ranging from her pro-abortion stance to withholding funding for the border wall, she has been voting with the Republican majority on more issues than would be expected. Conservative Review rightly gives Sinema an “F” Liberty Score.
According to her senate website, Sinema is now taking a stand against Mexican raw sewage flowing across the border into Nogales, AZ.
“Right now, the people of Nogales are forced to pay for Mexico’s sewage costs. That’s not fair, and we’re working to fix the problem so Nogales residents only pay for their responsibility,” said Sinema.
Sinema’s topic also rings true as it relates to the border invasion.
In this letter sent to President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, led a bipartisan group of senators — including Sinema — urging DHS to begin “Operation Safe Return” along a portion of the U.S./Mexico border. The program would allow immigration officials to implement a pilot program streamlining the asylum review process, permitting border officials to deport families without credible asylum claims within 15 days. The exploited children in many of those so-called families, were unrelated to the adults, but used to prioritize their processing.
This is not a reliable as it sounds, since the majority of illegal aliens have been coached by activists and immigration lawyers on the exact words to say to get them into the legal pipeline. If the Central Americans were actually seeking asylum, why didn’t they make such claims when they initially entered Mexico? One reason is the generous taxpayer-funded benefits illegals are able to access in the United States. The Center for Immigration Studies reports, 63% of non-citizen households access welfare programs.
Johnson and Sinema were joined by Republican Sens. Rob Portman, (OH); James Lankford, (OK); Michael Enzi, (WY); John Barrasso, (WY); and John Cornyn (TX). Democrat Sens. Joe Manchin (WV) and Doug Jones (AL) also signed on.
