Biden’s Recklessness Has Helped Foment a Border Crisis

The Biden administration is a disaster.

While the mainstream media was triggered anytime President Donald Trump eschewed any Swamp-y tradition, such as the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Joe Biden is largely getting a pass for failing to do such basic things expected of a new president as holding a press conference in his first 40 days or giving an address to a joint session of Congress.

The fact that Vice President Kamala Harris is making calls to heads of government, including Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and French President Emmanuel Macron, is not merely an interesting factoid—it is a troubling testament to the fact that our chief executive is abdicating his constitutional power.

If we were living in relatively tranquil times, such as certain points in the 1950s or the 1990s, that would be troubling, but maybe not catastrophic.

On the contrary, we are now amidst one the most perilous moments in our country’s history.

A rudderless administration can quickly result in mistakes the magnitude of which will have a profound negative impact for generations to come. Sadly, that is happening as we speak: The Biden team is stacking up its shortcomings one on top of another.

A current, major national security calamity is the migrant crisis transpiring at our southern border. President Trump kept his campaign promises, constructed over 450 miles of border wall, stemmed the tide of illegal crossings into our country and strengthened both Immigration and Customs Enforcement and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Instead of continuing to put America first, as President Trump did, President Biden has hung a preverbal “Free Entry” sign at our southern border, resulting in tent cities of migrants in Tijuana and, as a recent report by Axios showed, an almost-700 percent increase in unaccompanied migrant children being referred by CBP to the Department of Health and Human Services.
