Even while the Biden Administration refrains from saying it, there is a grave crisis at the southern border as record numbers of illegal immigrants are being detained. In February alone, border agents reported a staggering 100,000 migrants trying to gain access into the United States. But according to Biden and his Press Secretary, there isn’t a problem at the border, and what we are seeing is a result of the former President, Donald Trump.
In their latest attempts to squash growing rumors that the southern border is being overrun, Press Secretary Jen Psaki refrained from calling it a crisis and instead said, “Look, I don’t think we need to sit here and put new labels on what we have already conveyed is challenging, what we have conveyed is a top priority for the president, what our policy teams are working on every single day.”
Resorting to passing the blame back to the previous Administration, the Democrats forgot that President Trump took a bold stance when it came to immigration and protecting America. Unlike Biden, Trump didn’t run and hide in the Oval Office when the country needed him. Luckily, Trump isn’t one to stay silent for too long and released the following statement about the growing concerns at the border.
“When I was President, our Southern border was in great shape – stronger, safer, and more secure than ever before. We ended Catch-and-Release, shut down asylum fraud, and crippled the vicious smugglers, drug dealers, and human traffickers. The wall, despite horrendous Democrat delays, would have easily been finished by now, and is working magnificently. Our country is being destroyed at the Southern border, a terrible thing to see!”
As the Democrats try to figure out a plan to combat the surge of migrants at the border, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas resorted to asking DHS staff to help control the influx of immigrants they are seeing on a daily basis. Mayorkas said in an email, “Today, I activated the Volunteer Force to support Customs and Border Protection as they face a surge in migration along the Southwest Border. You have likely seen the news about the overwhelming numbers of migrants seeking access to this country along the Southwest Border. President Biden and I are committed to ensuring our Nation has a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system while continuing to balance all of the other critical DHS missions.”
Although his email refers to the President being committed to keeping America safe, Biden has yet to make a single announcement on any matter, let alone the crisis at the border. With each passing day, the situation becomes more complex as Biden is completely fine dodging press conferences and staying silent while supposedly running the country.
