Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana said Tuesday Americans are aware of President Joe Biden’s deception on the issue of illegal immigration on the southern border.
“President Biden is talking a lot about democracy, as he should,” Kennedy said during an appearance on The Faulkner Focus, according to Fox News.
“Democracy thrives on the mutual acceptance of rules, norms and institutions. President Biden’s southern border policy has undermined this principle. He fully opened the southern border, and he looked the American people in the eye, and he lied and said the border was closed,” Kennedy said.
Democracy thrives on everyone accepting rules and norms.

Customs and Border Protection has said there have been 2,150,639 encounters along the southern border through August. A month before the end of the federal fiscal year, the number of encounters far exceeded the 1,734,686 in the 2021 federal fiscal year.

When CBS examined these numbers, it found that there were changes in the nationalities of the illegal immigrants pouring across the border.
More than 25,000 Venezuelans were arrested in August, setting a record for illegal immigrants from the South American nation. The flood also made Venezuela the second-ranking nation behind Mexico in terms of illegal immigrants entering the United States
CBS found that Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua combined accounted for over a third of those arrested.
Kennedy said Americans have “no small tolerance for idiots.”

“They don’t like being treated like an idiot. They don’t like it when the President lies to them, and when they challenge the President, they don’t like it when the President calls them Nazis and racists,” he said
Kennedy said Americans shouldn’t be labeled anti-immigrants.
“Most Americans support legal immigration,” he said, noting that “the whole world wants to come here.”
“When was the last time you saw someone trying to sneak into China? They want to come to America and Americans support that,” he said, noting that more than 1 million people become citizens every year.
Kennedy said Americans know the difference between right and wrong.
“The American people feel that illegal immigration is illegal. I mean, ‘Duh’,” he said.
He said fear for the nation’s security was not evidence of bias.
“Americans treat the southern border as home,” he said.
“Most Americans lock their front door at night,” Kennedy said. “They don’t lock their front door at night because they hate everyone on the outside. They lock their front door at night because they love people inside and they want to know who’s in and out of their homes, and that’s how most Americans see the southern border.”
