Senator Joe Manchin criticized the Democrats for allowing the border crisis to happen and urged President Biden to declare a national emergency if Congress fails to address the issue.

He emphasized the urgency of fixing the border security problem and called for a bipartisan effort to resolve it, warning against letting politics hinder necessary action.

Sen. Manchin said, “It’s the most dangerous thing we have, is the border security right now and a lapse of border security. So, we can fix that. But when you have former President Trump saying, oh, no, we can’t do that, because let’s just go ahead and blame the Democrats. Well, the Democrats let this happen. But it’s time to fix it. So, we can fix this working together. But not to fix it because of politics, it’s not who we are as a country. It’s not what our purpose in Washington is all about.”

“The crisis at the border is an absolute, total crisis, and it’s dangerous. And we can fix it. And if not, I would ask the President, please, Mr. President declare a national emergency. Don’t let the politics destroy, basically, the border situation and security that we need at that border, and I would hope he would do that,” he continued.

Manchin described the border situation as a dangerous crisis and implored the President to consider declaring a national emergency to prevent political factors from undermining border security.
