Former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard told fellow Democrats Friday they must end their “open-border policy” and “respect” Americans instead of “trying to divide us by the color of our skin. “
“My fellow Dems: if you want people to vote for you, stop calling millions of Americans dogs–only dogs respond to ‘dog whistles’,” Gabbard tweeted.
” Stop trying to separate us by our skin color,” she said. End your open-border policies. Give us the respect that we are Americans and God’s children. “
Gabbard, a former Democratic presidential candidate, has recently condemned multiple actions by the Biden administration and the Democratic Party, including the rocky withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.

Earlier this week, Gabbard suggested Terry McAuliffe’s gubernatorial loss in Virginia was a “victory for all Americans” as it was a “rejection of efforts to divide us by race, the stripping of parental rights and arrogant, deaf leaders. “

“The Department of Homeland Security secretary recently told Congress, ‘Our borders are secure.’ This is what [Mayorkas] said,” Gabbard said at the time. According to her, Americans lose faith in their leaders and government when they hear “bold-faced lies” like those being presented by Gabbard.
