Rebecca Hamlin Comments on Republican Criticism of Biden’s Response to Border Crossing

Rebecca Hamlin, Associate Professor of Legal Studies and Political Science at UMass Amherst, comments in an article about Republicans in Congress who are criticizing President Biden’s response to the recent increase in people trying to cross the southern border into the United States. Hamlin says the Trump administration “created one of the most dangerous, poor-quality, unsanitary, crowded refugee camps in the world,” and that criticisms of what Biden has done since taking office are “nakedly partisan” and designed to motivate the Republican base.
