Statement from Frank Sharry on the Today’s Senate Floor Unanimous Consent Requests
Today, Senate Republicans are offering a series of bills for “unanimous consent” on the Senate floor in their ongoing effort to politicize and weaponize immigration. The measures will all fail because Democrats will object, as they should.
The following is a statement from Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice:
The contrast could not be clearer: Democrats are going big to solve problems. Republicans are pulling stunts to score political points.
In order to feed their right wing media ecosystem, Republicans will take the Senate floor today to demonize children seeking safety at the border and immigrants settled in America. This is mugging for the camera, not leadership.
Meanwhile, Democrats are passing bills to crush the virus, vaccinate the country, open up the economy and put kids back in school. They are prepared to restore our democracy, address climate change, improve racial equity and put millions of undocumented immigrants on pathways to citizenship.
Republicans are a post-policy party that craves red meat. Democrats are a big change party enacting policies the American people crave. No wonder Democrats have won the last two elections.
