Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “EXCLUSIVE: Texas Democrat Says He’s Given Up On Border Talks With The White House”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas has given up on having conversations with the White House about the border because top officials in the Biden administration are only interested in listening to “immigration activists,” he said in an exclusive interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“I haven’t followed up with the White House because after months and months and months of talking to them,” Cuellar told the DCNF.

“A lot of them are dealing with former immigration activists, so they have a different way of thinking. So I don’t think I can ever convey to them. The career people understand it. But the White House people are former immigration activists, so the answer is no to that,” he added.

Cuellar, who represents a South Texas border district, has long supported securing the border and was in favor of keeping Title 42, a public health measure to quickly expel illegal aliens, in place, despite the Biden administration’s attempt to end it. He’s also a pro-life Democrat and was the only member of his party to vote against an abortion bill in 2021.

He was recently one of five Democrats to vote against an assault weapons ban. In the current congressional term, Cuellar has voted against the majority of House Democrats 4.1%, according to ProPublica.
