Arizona Dem calls out Biden DHS for dragging feet on helping state’s border communities

An Arizona Democrat called out President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for dragging its feet on helping the communities of his state and other border states.

Arizona Democrat Rep. Ruben Gallego has been an outspoken critic of the Federal Emergency Management Administration’s (FEMA) Shelter and Services Program (SSP) funding model for border communities amid the immigration crisis.

Gallego has sent several letters to the Biden administration regarding his disagreement on the funding model — including one to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas — and called the SSP model “misguided” in his letter to FEMA.

An MSNBC writer blasted Adams — who touted his city as a sanctuary city for illegal migrants — as “Black Trump” on Sunday for his speech raising concerns about the migrant crisis which was spilling over into the Big Apple, calling it “bigoted thinking” inspired by the right.

“But there’s a reason Adams’ rant is being applauded by conservatives… Maybe it’s because [conservatives] feel they’ve made him… come around to their bigoted thinking,” said Ja’han Jones, a writer for MSNBC’s The ReidOut Blog, the “digital extension” of Joy Reid’s primetime show.
