A few months into his presidency and it seems things are falling apart.
He swore he would not let things get this bad.
However, Joe Biden made a huge statement about the border crisis that made everything worse.
President Biden had an interview with reporters on the south lawn of the White House, where he answered reporters questions on the ongoing border crisis.
One reporter asked Biden why so many migrants continue to enter the country in such large numbers over the U.S.-Mexico border despite his admonishments telling them not to come:
“Why do you think the message to the migrants, telling them to stay home, don’t come now, why do you think that hasn’t resonated yet? What more can be done sir?” the reporter asked.
“A lot more. We’re in the process of doing it now, including making sure that we re-establish what existed before, which was they can stay in place and make their case from their home countries,” Biden responded.
Biden was referring to a Trump era policy called the “Remain in Mexico” policy.
It required migrants who sought asylum in the U.S. to remain in Mexico while their asylum claims were being processed.
This policy was part of the immigration deal that Trump struck in June of 2019.
However, the Biden administration ended this deal – and the subsequent policy – when he took office.
Since then, the number of people crossing the border to seek asylum in the U.S. has risen exponentially.
The mass amounts of migrants have flooded the border, leading to overcrowding, horrible living conditions, and a massive increase in coronavirus concern.
Images have been released of the lack of social distancing and sanitary measures as these facilities struggle to accommodate all the people flocking to their buildings for safety.
Up until March 18, the Biden administration refused to constitute this mass migration a “crisis.”
They have faced enormous backlash and extreme criticism for this stance as well as their refusal to act on said crisis.
Many are saying it is Biden’s fault this crisis occurred and are criticizing his seeming lack of care as well as his lack of responsibility or attempt to provide aid.
In addition to these concerns, many people are worried for their safety and their jobs.
In a time when American unemployment is at an all time high in the midst of a global pandemic, many are worried about a lack of jobs for the American people.
President Biden has not provided any further details about a potential transition back to this Trump-era policy, and his administration has not offered any further information.
