Yet Another Politician Ditches The Democrats For The GOP

(TargetDailyNews.com) – An attorney for a county in Texas on the Southern border has switched from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party after citing the border’s continued immigration crisis as the reason for her sudden switch to the other side.

Kira Talip Sanchez, the county attorney for Kleberg County officially declared herself as a newly minted Republican last weekend, saying that the GOP’s policies of “law and order” better align with her values regarding working with law enforcement and ensuring the nation’s borders are secure from illegal immigration. She said further that she “looks forward” to helping keep Southern Texas safe from illegal immigration.

Kleberg County has historically leaned Democrat. However, it voted in favor of George W. Bush in both 2000 and 2004, as well as former President Donald Trump in 2020.

The news comes as several prominent Democratic politicians across the country are also beginning to turn on President Joe Biden amid his administration’s policy of being soft on border patrol. Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey recently declared a state of emergency in her state in response to the migrant crisis, saying that the federal government is not doing its proper share of the work needed to address the crisis.

Healey has since demanded that the federal government pay for the expenses incurred by the state, which currently houses over 20,000 individual migrants, which make up nearly 5,600 families. Among them are also children and pregnant women.

Chicago Alderman Raymond Lopez, another Democrat, challenged Biden to come to the migrant camps in Chicago himself to see how bad the migrant crisis in the city has become.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams, who first came to power on the idea that migrants are welcome in New York, has flip-flopped in saying that the federal government has “turned its back” on New York, as the city continues to grapple with a migrant crisis that could cost taxpayers $12 billion.
