Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) introduced a resolution to censure President Joe Biden for what she believes is a failure to enforce laws at the southern border.
“I’m proud to lead my colleagues in filing a bill to censure President Joe Biden for his dereliction of duty and failure to secure the southern homeland,” Boebert said during a press conference on Wednesday.
She added, “He has refused to enforce the laws that Congress has passed to secure our border.”
Boebert accused Biden of passing it on to “cackling Kamala.”
She continued, “When he tapped Ms. Harris as border czar, her work on the border is non-existent. It’s a joke and even she laughs. But it’s not funny.”

Boebert introduced the resolution along with 20 other Republicans.
“My censure resolution holds President Biden accountable for his actions – or lack thereof – at the border,” Boebert said in a statement.
She added, “Biden has refused to enforce the laws securing our border, he has refused to visit our border, his border czar Kamala has refused to visit the border, and his Secretary of Homeland Security is lying to the American people by saying that our border is closed.”
According to Fox News, the resolution expresses “disapproval of the failure to uphold the constitutional duty to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed’ and the usurpation of the legislative authority of Congress by the President of the United States.”
Reps. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), Lance Gooden (R-Texas), and Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.) are among those included in the resolution, as the outlet reports.
