Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar, the only pro-life Democrat remaining in the Democrat party blasted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Joe Biden.
This comes after AOC questioned whether pro-life Democrats should still be in the party.
AOC said “so, the ones that aren’t, we really need to reassess if it’s appropriate for them to continue to serve in 2022, because people should have the right to control their own body. This is pretty basic.”
Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar, the lone pro-life Democrat serving in the House who has been outspoken about deteriorating conditions at the border, is sounding off about recent remarks made by one of his progressive colleagues and inaction from President Joe Biden’s administration to secure the southern border.
“I’m a pro-life Democrat,” Cuellar said. “I know it’s a decision that, unfortunately, divides a lot of people. It’s a very emotional issue and I understand that.”
“Who is she to decide what’s the standard of being a real Democrat,” he said. “If you look at what we do as members of Congress, we represent a district – she represents her district, I represent my district – and that’s the way it should be.”
“I would ask her to look up the definition of a progressive in the dictionary,” he continued. “It says that a progressive is one that’s open to new ideas. The only thing wrong with some of these new progressives is that they’re not open to the new ideas, they’re only open to their ideas. And somebody down the line came up with a standard that the only standard there should be is ‘you have to agree with me, and if you don’t agree with me, then you’re the pro-enemy’ and that’s what makes it so hard to work in Congress because people set these artificial standards when we ought to be looking at how do we work together.”
Cuellar then blasted the Biden administration over their failures to secure the border.
Cuellar said “If you look at what’s happening at the border right now, Laredo, or even the Valley, 60% of the border patrol agents in my sector are in border processing centers doing logistics for migrants or taking care of the migrants. Sixty percent of them. Then another 10% of them are doing administrative work or outreach. That leaves only 30% of all the border patrol agents in my sector, or in the Valley, that are actually manning the checkpoints or the border itself at the river.”
