During yet another vetting of Joe Biden’s AG nominee, Merrick Garland seems to come up short, again.
When Senator Josh Hawley questioned Garland during his confirmation hearings, Garland admitted that he “hadn’t thought” about illegal immigration remaining a crime.
The Senator from Missouri believed “that illegal entry at America’s border should remain a crime?”
“Well, I haven’t thought about that question. I just haven’t thought about that question,” Garland answered.
“I think the president has made clear that we are a country with borders and with a concern about national security. I don’t know of a proposal to decriminalize but still make it unlawful to enter. I just don’t know the answer to that question. I hadn’t thought about it.”
Decriminalizing border crossings has become a popular platform of the radical left, and even some candidates are endorsing it.
Bernie Sanders came out during the 2020 presidential race and said that illegal immigration should be demoted to a civil offense instead of a criminal.
It looks like this could be a significant red flag of Biden moving in that direction.
This is yet another wave of mounting concern for conservatives who are beginning to get nervous about Biden’s immigration stance.
Biden decided not to continue Trump’s border wall, which served as a prohibitor for cartels trying to cross the border.
The White House is also negotiating plans to “abolish” the immigration enforcement agency known as ICE.
Immigration aside, it comes as a surprise to hear something so liberal from the former SCOTUS candidate Merrick Garland.
Garland, who for a brief time was Obama’s nominee for SCOTUS, is supposed to be someone who is bipartisan.
From what we have seen of Garland so far signals that bipartisanship is not in his platform.
