Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) blasted President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris over their failure to protect the border, with the vice president receiving more of the senators.

Kennedy, in a Fox News appearance, noted that over 2 million illegal immigrants have been encountered at the U.S.-Mexico border during the fiscal year 2023 alone. The Louisiana senator added that the southern border has been “ an open bleeding wound.”
Since President Biden and Vice President Harris have been in office about 8.4 million people have come into our country illegally. That’s four Nebraskas,” Kennedy said. “We don’t have the slightest idea who they are. Why is that? Because this administration believes in open borders. Why is that? Because this administration has embraced the neo-socialist woke-wing, loon-wing of the Democratic Party.”

Kennedy also criticized President Biden and Vice President Harris for how they have handled the economy. The lawmaker touched on inflation and the ongoing Israel-Hamas war before adding that the pair’s woeful record is why they are trailing Former President Donald Trump in polls from Quinnipiac and NBC released since Nov. 14. Kennedy said both poll’s results are indications that the American people have reached a conclusion on the current administration.

“The American people may be poorer under President Biden, but they’re not stupid,” Kennedy said. “They see an open border, they experience inflation, they see the rampant crime. The American people look around and see the world on fire, the war in Ukraine, the war in the Middle East, the embers smoldering in China and they have concluded that fair or unfair, Martha, I’m not saying this is accurate but I can read a poll and the American people have concluded that President Biden is old and he needs soup and an early bedtime and they have concluded that Vice President Harris is not capable, that when her IQ gets to 75, she should sell.”
