Former Democrat congressman Dennis Kucinich criticized President Joe Biden’s border policies, calling them “reprehensible” and suggesting that sealing the border is necessary to maintain national sovereignty.

Kucinich accused Biden’s immigration approach of being a ploy to drive down wages and benefit Wall Street and big businesses.

“My position, some people may think it’s heartless, seal the border. You don’t have a country if you don’t have borders,” Kucinich said.

“People can’t get into Canada, just walk over, it’s not going to happen. You can’t get over there in a boat or a plane. You’re not going to walk across the bridge to Ontario or from Niagra Falls.”

Kucinich referenced a new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report stating that increased immigration would lower average real wages while boosting the nation’s GDP.

“The immigration should be regularized and we’ve gotten away from that. And as a result, it’s not just … a plan to drive down wages, which Bernie Sanders has pointed out, and perhaps a plan to get more people in the military but it’s also, we’ve opened the door, the borders to mules and drug cartels and anybody that wants to assault American cities with their illicit economic activity,” Kucinich said.

Kucinich also highlighted the impact on native-born American workers, noting that new U.S. jobs are predominantly going to foreign workers, leaving many native-born Americans struggling to reenter the workforce.

“CBO also estimates that the increase in population will put downward pressure on average real wages in the near term. That effect is projected to partially reverse after 2027, but average real wages are expected to be slightly lower by 2034 than they would be otherwise,” the CBO report stated.

“Most of the increase in the projected population reflects larger net immigration. That greater immigration is projected to boost the growth rate of the nation’s real gross domestic product (GDP) by an average of 0.2 percentage points a year from 2024 to 2034, leaving real GDP roughly 2 percent larger in 2034 than it would be otherwise.”

“Turns out immigrants aren’t ‘takers’ after all — they’re givers to the U.S. economy and essential to a sustainable future, especially if we want elder generations to age with dignity,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wrote online.

“In just the last year, a net 193k native-born workers lost their jobs, while a net 1.2 million foreign-born workers gained jobs,” economist E.J. Antoni said.
