Two long-time Democrat judges have decided to seek re-election as Republicans.

Dale Carruthers, justice of Terrell County, and Cinderella Guevera, justice of Presidio County, both women who serve in border communities in Texas, expressed their anger at how Biden’s border policies have impacted their areas.

They claim that the Biden’s polices, which have allowed more than 2 million migrants to enter the US illegally over the southern border, are the sole reason they switched political parties.

They say they have had enough of the crime that has resulted from the wide-open border including increased trafficking, the smuggling of people, weapons and guns.

In a report from The Center Square’s Bethany Blankley, Terrell County Judge Dale Carruthers and Presidio County Judge Cinderela Guevara — two females in Texas border communities — said they are sick and tired of Biden’s open border policies destroying their small communities.

“The single reason they switched parties, they say, is because the Biden administration’s policies led to more than 2 million people coming through the southern border from over 150 countries. The costs of crime stemming from an open border – increased trafficking and smuggling of people, weapons, and guns – to their communities has prompted them to say, “enough is enough” and do something about it,” Blankley wrote.

At a campaign event, Carruthers said, “I come from a Hispanic heritage, which was prominently Democrat. The chaos at the border and everything that’s been going on make me realize that I needed to switch parties. I am very happy to be a Republican and to represent this great state of Texas as a judge.”

“I’ve been a Democrat since 1992,” Guevara said. “I’ve always ran as a Democrat and this is my first year to run as a Republican. I’m very grateful for Gov. Abbott for all he has done for Texas and continues to do for Texas, especially with our border crisis.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing serious political headwinds heading into November’s midterm elections.

Fifty-five members of Congress are not running for re-election this year, which breaks down to 6 U.S. Senators and 49 House lawmakers.

Of those 49 House lawmakers who will not run for re-election, 32 of them are Democrats.

Both judges were among the first to declare an invasion on July 5, citing an imminent threat to the lives of their residents.

The Center Square reported that on July 5, six counties and one city declared an invasion at the southern border, including Terrell and Presidio counties. They also expressed their commitment to uphold the Constitution, arguing they needed to take such an extraordinary measure to defend the lives of their residents.
