Joe Biden recently declared that he would not be visiting the southern border “because there are more important things going on”. This statement has sparked outrage from many who are concerned about the current situation at the US-Mexico border, as well as from those who find it hypocritical for a president to not address an issue as serious as illegal immigration.
The Biden regime insists that the current surge of unaccompanied minors and families crossing into the United States is due to seasonal migration patterns and increased violence in Central American countries like Guatemala and Honduras. However, some argue that Biden’s own policies have made it easier for people to gain access to the US. One example is his decision to revoke a Trump-era policy that required migrants to stay in Mexico while their asylum claims were processed. This decision was seen by many as an invitation for thousands of migrants to come to the US without fear of being turned away.
Furthermore, Biden’s refusal to visit the southern border may imply that he does not take this crisis seriously enough—or worse yet, that he doesn’t care about it at all. People want accountability from their leaders, especially when it comes to issues like immigration reform and border security.
Joe Biden’s comments have only served to add fuel to an already contentious debate over immigration policy in this country. It is clear that there is much work still ahead if we are ever going to resolve this issue once and for all. Hopefully, Biden will take a more proactive role in leading us towards a solution—otherwise, we may never get one.
Only time will tell what kind of impact his words will have on our future immigration policies. But if we ever really want to get something down about the border, we’re just going to need to elect a conservative president.
