Rep. Val Demings, a Florida Democrat who’s working to unseat Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, tweeted in favor of securing the U.S. border “and other points of entry” final week, which the Rubio marketing campaign slammed as an “election-cycle charade” that contradicts her personal document.

Demings tweeted Wednesday that immigration reform is required so as to stem the tide of overdose deaths in the nation, which have hit document ranges.

“What’s happening right now is a preventable tragedy. Taking it on requires a multistep approach,” she argued. “1) Hold pharma companies accountable 2) Secure the border and other points of entry 3) Make addiction and mental health treatment accessible to all.”

Despite her name to safe the border, Demings has a historical past of voting in opposition to insurance policies that some might argue would do exactly that. In 2019, she called President Trump’s southern border wall “an absurd waste of money and a violation of our values as a nation of immigrants,” and he or she voted “yes” to terminate his declaration of an emergency at the border, which freed up billions in funding for the wall.

Demings additionally voted in opposition to a invoice that may make it simpler to deport unlawful immigrants who’re suspected of gang exercise and one other that may limit taxpayer grant cash to sanctuary cities.

“Demings may be willing to do and say anything in order to win, but her record speaks for itself,” the Rubio marketing campaign mentioned in a press release to Fox News Digital. “Demings supports illegal immigrants voting, sanctuary cities, and a pathway to citizenship for gang members and sexual abusers while she opposes the border wall and resources for border agencies. 

“Floridians will see proper via her election-cycle charade,” the campaign said.

Meanwhile, Demings was among the group of Democrats who led the failed effort for immigration reform, including a pathway to citizenship for millions of DREAMers and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) immigrants, to be included in the $1.9 trillion social spending bill passed by the House on Friday.
