Joe Biden’s poor handling of the Haitian immigration crisis has sparked outrage not only from Republicans, but also within the Democrat Party. Included among those who called out the president is former Democrat Representative Tulsi Gabbard.
Gabbard criticized the president’s faulty approach of pledging border officers would pay the price for the violence that happened at the southern border.
Former Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Demands an Apology from Biden
.@JoeBiden @KamalaHarris, the humanitarian and national security crisis on the southern border is the direct result of your open-border policy. As I said in my 2020 presidential campaign, we can’t have a secure nation if we don't secure our borders.

During her appearance on “Watters’ World” with host Jesse Watters, Tulsi Gabbard claimed that Biden’s move of putting all the blame on the border officials contradicts a fundamental rule of law. This is particularly true when it comes to inquiry and investigation.
She further believes these efforts are weakening the democratic structure of the United States; the president himself is trying to act as a judge, jury, and executioner at the same time. So, the former congresswoman demanded an apology from President Biden over his “whipping” claims of holding the border officials accountable.
Gabbard clarified these sorts of presidential statements could obstruct the process of inquiry; she claimed that no one could expect the impartial outcome of the investigation when the president has already declared border officials guilty.
The former Democrat representative is worried about the path on which the country is moving as these types of practices undermine democracy. Gabbard went on to say this failure to implement the rule of law is detrimental to the country’s future.
While criticizing President Biden, Gabbard also scrutinized the media’s role in undermining the US’ interests for the sake of promoting their own agenda.
Multiple Democrats are Now Blaming the Biden Administration for the Border Crisis
Amid the rising border tensions, President Biden promised to hold border agents accountable for their mismanagement of the border crisis. Biden said they would face the consequences of their actions when the video of them pushing Haiti immigrants back while riding horses went viral.
This is not the first time Gabbard criticized Biden for the mishandling of immigrants at the southern border. On Thursday, she endorsed Trump’s border policy and advised Joe Biden to reinstate his predecessor’s immigration vision.
According to her, only human traffickers, cartels, and gangs benefit from open border policies that are at the core of the Democrat agenda. Gabbard has often criticized the mainstream Democrat leadership for its faulty approach towards solving the US border issues. She claims having a secure country is not possible without making borders safe.
I was hoping that Biden would keep his promise to try to unite our country, but instead this admin has used race and identity politics to divide us, our freedom of speech and civil liberties are under assault, inflation is going through the roof, and we’ve got open borders. pic.twitter.com/uFOxutndho

Gabbard is not the only Democrat criticizing Biden’s mishandling of Haitian immigrants. Julian Castro, who worked under Barack Obama, also chastised Biden for treating Haitian immigrants like animals.
Not only this, but various other current Democrat lawmakers also scolded Biden for not being able to tackle the crisis in an effective fashion.
