Migrant Crimes Dismissed by Congressional Democrats

(HorizonPost.com) – When a congressional correspondent pressed Democratic members of Congress about concerns regarding President Joe Biden’s parole policy for illegal aliens amid rising crime rates, they seemed to brush off those concerns.

On Wednesday, June 26, Fox News correspondent Hillary Vaughn confronted and questioned various Democratic members of Congress on Capitol Hill about the president’s parole policy for qualified illegal immigrants and they refused to give a discreet response.

Since the beginning of 2023 alone, the Biden administration policy drew over a million immigrants to the country, yet reports show that the system has been having trouble tracking the status of parolees after they enter the US.

Vaughn asked Democratic Rep. Maxwell Frost of Florida if the US should “be releasing people” before making sure of their “intentions and whether or not” they could “end up killing an American.” Frost replied that he thinks knowing the intentions of illegal aliens is “important,” that a process already exists “for that,” and that some inevitably “slip through the cracks.”

Rep. Pramila Jayapal said that “fewer crimes” are committed by “undocumented immigrants” than by “anyone else.” When Vaughn asked if those crimes could’ve been avoided if those illegal immigrants were not granted parole, Jayapal did not respond. Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York gave a similar reply as Jayapal, and when pressed further by Vaughn, he replied, “I’ve said what I’m going to say.”

The evasive answers come in the wake of numerous violent crimes and murders in US headlines involving illegal aliens. One of the most notable cases, which Biden mentioned in his last State of the Union, is the murder of Laken Riley, a nursing student from Georgia who was murdered while jogging on campus. The accused is a Venezuelan national.

Earlier this month, two other Venezuelan illegal aliens were arrested for the murder of a 12-year-old girl in Houston, Texas, and an Ecuadorian national for raping and killing a 37-year-old mother of five.

As the presidential election draws nearer, the border crisis and immigration have become a central issue for American voters, many of whom consider it a deciding issue.
