Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich went on “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning to rip into Vice President Kamala Harris, saying that she was only put in charge of the border crisis “because they knew she wouldn’t do anything.”
Gingrich also said that the administration of Joe Biden is “in favor of open borders” because they have the goal of bringing in as many illegal immigrants as possible.
“If you look at a piece of history, sometimes the obvious is accurate. They wanted Harris to be in charge of the border because they knew she wouldn’t do anything,” Gingrich said, according to Fox News. “This is not a mistake, this is why they refuse to call it a crisis. They want the border to be open. Go back and look at the presidential primary debates. They are all in favor of open borders. They are all in favor of eliminating ICE. They are all in favor of eliminating any threat to sanctuary cities. So from their perspective, the next 10 or 15,000 people [coming in] are good because it further increases the number of illegal immigrants in the United States, which is what they want.”
“Of course, it’s working,” he added. “What if your goal was to have the maximum number of illegal people in the United States? How would you do better than Biden?”
This comes after Gingrich wrote on his website that Biden’s infrastructure plan “will not create jobs or ultimately improve our infrastructure. It will kill jobs and make infrastructure projects more expensive in time and money.”
He proceeded to call out the “deep irony” of Biden starting to look for support for his “American Job Killing Tax Plan” in Pittsburgh, given the fact that this was the site of the central battlefield of the 1791 Whiskey Rebellion. During this Rebellion, Americans fought against an overreaching tax on whiskey imposed by the federal government.
“So, today, we have President Biden, who is calling to immediately raise all domestic corporate taxes by one-third (from 21 percent to 28 percent), set a minimum 21 percent tax rate for multinational US corporations, raise taxes on oil and gas companies (which will cause the costs of gasoline, heating oil, and plastic to skyrocket), and levy a host of other new tax measures across the economy,” Gingrich continued.
