“President Joe Biden is to blame for the border crisis, Mexican counterpart Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Tuesday.
“Expectations were created that with the Government of President Biden there would be a better treatment of migrants. And this has caused Central American migrants, and also from our country, wanting to cross the border thinking that it is easier to do so,” Obrador told reporters during a Tuesday press conference.
“People don’t go to the United States for fun, they go out of necessity,” he added.
The Biden administration is receiving pressure from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to address the surge of migrants crossing the border. As of March 21, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents were holding more than 16,000 unaccompanied children in custody, according to media reports.
Nearly 9,500 unaccompanied minors entered U.S border custody last month, a record-high for February. That number is expected to be eclipsed in March. About 530 unaccompanied minors are crossing the border daily.” Newsmax
Comment: Trump’s old pal the socialist Lopez Obrador evidently misses him. Well, Pilgrim Turcopoles he will miss him even more when he has had the experience of dealing with the new border boss, Kamala Harris. pl
It looks like that list of unaccompanied children has grown substantially. It now dwarfs the hundreds of children who were separated from their families under President Trump. Candidate Biden made a point of criticizing President Trump on this issue, as a way of demonstrating The Don’s lack of morality and humanity. Trump’s tougher stance was the right way to go. Biden is inviting total disaster with his border policies.
It is interesting that President Biden is making Kamala Harris the face of his mess. He has tasked her with addressing the border crisis. Setting her up to fail is more like it. Even if she gets tough on the border, which is what needs to happen, she will alienate her fellow Democrats, much like she has done with her past stance on crime.
President Biden looks ready to announce a bold agenda that would rival FDR’s. Contrary to popular knowledge, FDR had in fact prolonged the severe economic crisis he inherited. If Biden really goes ahead with spending trillions and trillions, he will be courting similar economic consequences. There will be a far greater risk of bank runs and hyperinflation. Biden will eventually have to adopt draconian measures like those adopted by FDR.
This is a little off subject, but Jerry Seinfeld claims that it is impossible to do stand-up comedy in America today.
Well, I just finished viewing Ol’ Joe’s first live news conference, and Jerry is wrong!
Actually Biden spoke a good deal about the border migrant crisis, so I guess this is more on subject than I initially thought.
If we have an international crisis with a pucker factor similar to the Cuban Missile Crisis, I think we will be in a world of hurt with this bunch in charge.
It seems to me there is a very well coordinated effort to move thousands from latin America, and elsewhere, via an established network, to the US border. 15,000+ “minors” in a matter of weeks. The news media seems to be in on the effort. Especially after Biden’s presser, with the Baizuo ladies and their breathless reports of poor little 9 year old with only a phone number to call when he gets to the US. Aparently only the press can use a telephone and get a hold of “mom” down in Honduras. Of course the other pair mentioned in that news conference had “parents” already in the US. Which begs the questions of what was little Jose doing about food and shelter and tp on his thousand mile march, and why didn’t people here in the US follow the law to get their “children” here too?
Remember the cartoon character who suffers from whiplash trying to figure out which way did they go, which way did they go.
The Biden-Harris mambo interaction reminds me of the poor little cartoon character and his poor swiveled head and neck.
The southern border issue — Biden chimes Wednesday that Kamala is ‘fixing’ the border mambo, while Kamala apparently doesn’t want lead so her spokesperson said on Friday “The VP is not doing the border”.
So who is leading the dance? Which way did they go, which way did they go…..
The border crisis mambo is more a Texas Two-Step.
Get the minor across the border, then parents how up later demanding to be “re-united”, and then comes the chain migration for the rest of the relatives. Multiply each unaccompanied minor by a factor of at least 5, and you get a truer picture of Biden’s border crisis impact.
