Buddy Carter Exposes Biden's Blame Game

Congressman Buddy Carter Exposes Biden’s Blame Game

Congressman Buddy Carter of Georgia’s 1st Congressional District, and co-sponsor of the Laken Riley Act, appeared on Breaking Battlegrounds this week to challenge President Biden’s claim that Republicans had the chance to pass a border bill, which in reality did not address border issues at all. Listen to Congressman Carter here.

Chuck Warren: Let me go back to the State of the Union real quick is there anything in that speech t​​hat you feel Republicans are willing to try to reach some sort of agreement with the president on?

Is there anything he’s offered that you think that there’s some wiggle room to find some sort of what people call bipartisan agreement?

Congressman Buddy Carter: Well, a couple of things.

First of all, I was pleased, as I said earlier, that he did mention Laken Riley’s name, although he mispronounced it or not mispronounced it. He called her the wrong name. But nevertheless, I was pleased with that.

You know, we need to make sure we understand, when it comes to Ukraine and Israel, of course Republicans, of course conservatives support Ukraine. We do not want Putin to be successful.

We understand the impact on democracy throughout the world.

We get that.

We want to support Israel. Of course we want to support Israel. They are our ally, our only ally in the Middle East. We need Israel.

We all agree on that.

But, you know, he wanted to point fingers and say, you had an opportunity here to pass a border bill.

No, Mr. President, what was sent over from the Senate was not a border bill, Mr. President.

It was an amnesty and an immigration bill. And it wasn’t addressing the border.

And, you know, specifically in that bill, let me ask you.

How many laws do we have on the books that says when a certain amount of people break the law, then we’re going to stop it and then everybody else will be guilty. You know, the first 5,000 who come across that border, you’re okay. But if you’re 5,001, your ass is going to jail.

I mean, that’s ridiculous. 

That was bad legislation.

The correct border bill is in the Senate now. It’s H.R. 2.
