Sen. Rick Scott: Dems, Biden Administration 'Hypocrites' on Border
Sen. Rick Scott Friday slammed the Biden administration and Democrats as "hypocrites" over their immigration policy that continues to keep children in migrant detention centers.
"They are causing this problem by stopping the wall," the Florida Republican said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "They are opening up the borders and stopped the stay in Mexico policy, so now we have the poor migrant kids being left at the border by their parents and trying to get them to become citizens so the parents can become citizens."
Meanwhile, Scott, who chairs the National Republican Senatorial Committee, will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, in Orlando on Friday and said he will speak about how the Republican "civil war" has been canceled.
"We are not going to go backward," he said. "We are not going to fight within ourselves ... the Democrats are now the socialist party. Socialism is their policy. So think about that. Bad things are going to happen to families across the country because of socialism. Look at Venezuela, look at China, look at Cuba, look at what's going on in the countries. We don't want that."
Scott said he will also talk about how Democrats will win the 2022 races "because we will focus on the issues. We will get Americans jobs, open up schools, [have] school choice, support law enforcement, and have a strong military. We will have a secure border and do the things that are good for Americans."
