New report exposes Susan Wild’s border hypocrisy

May 15, 2024

It’s an election year, which means Susan Wild is making a desperate attempt to reel back her extreme policies and pretend to be a moderate.

Just last month, Wild wrote a pathetic op-ed trying to correct her failed record on the border. But Wild chose to leave out a few key facts: Wild stated she doesn’t believe Pennsylvania is a border state, thinks the border wall is “silly” and has repeatedly voted against securing the border. 

Read a new report from Fox News here or see experts below showing just how many lies Susan Wild is willing to tell to her voters ahead of Election Day.

Vulnerable House Dem flip-flops on immigration after dismissing border wall as ‘silly’

A vulnerable congressional Democrat in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania who previously dismissed a border wall as “silly,” appears to have shifted her views on immigration, according to a recent op-ed calling for stricter border security. 
“We may be a long way from the U.S.-Mexico border, but the problems created by a broken system affect us too, particularly with regard to the entry of illegal drugs into our country,” Rep. Susan Wild wrote in an op-ed published last month in The Morning Call.  
Wild’s op-ed, which was headlined “Your View by US Rep. Susan Wild: It’s time to do something about the Southern border,” comes after immigration has spiraled under the Biden administration. Nearly 7.3 million illegal immigrants flooded the nation between Biden’s first day in office and February of this year, Fox News Digital previously reported. The figure is greater than the population of 36 individual states, and has affected states across the nation. 
After the Biden administration avoided calling the flood of migrants at the border a “crisis” in 2021, Wild joined a C-SPAN program in January 2022 to discuss Biden’s first year in office and said she doesn’t agree with Republican colleagues that every state was a border state due to lax immigration laws. 
“No, I don’t agree with that statement,” she said in the interview. 
In 2018, when President Trump was in office, Wild joined a local Democratic debate and said the plan to build a border wall was “silly.” 
“Anybody here for building the wall? Anybody?” the debate moderator asked the group of Democrats. 
“Absolutely not. I think we, we, end that silly idea and put that money toward education and health care,” Wild responded. 

Wild’s op-ed appears to mark a turn in her previous rhetoric on border security, calling the matter a “crisis” that needs to be remedied. 
“There is unquestionably a crisis at our Southern border – and this is something that almost everyone, no matter their political persuasion, can agree on,” she began in the op-ed. 
She went on to pin blame for the lack of a secure border or immigration plan on “extreme politicians” who pull “cheap political stunts.”
“Many of us in Congress have proven time and time again that we are more than willing to work with members of either party on large-scale policy proposals to address border and immigration challenges. However, we are held hostage by the extreme politicians who continue to stall our efforts in the name of cheap political stunts,” she wrote. 

The op-ed comes after Wild dismissed the notion that illegal immigrants would take jobs from legal American residents during a C-SPAN interview, arguing “we have the opposite problem.”
“As far as what you mentioned about people coming across the border and taking jobs, quite honestly sir, we have the opposite problem right now. We need more people in our workforce,” she said. 

Wild will face off against Republican state Rep. Ryan Mackenzie, who has slammed Biden and Wild for “destroying this country” with “wide open borders” and crippling inflation.
