If nothing else, the antics of the Biden Administration certainly do feel…familiar…
In many ways, we’re just seeing a repeat of the problems created or made worse under the Obama Administration. It makes sense — a lot the same people are involved, and they brought their outdated philosophies with them. We saw “kids in cages” under Barack Obama’s watch, and we’re seeing the exact same thing play out with Joe Biden “in charge.”
Make no mistake — we may be in familiar territory, but things have never been this bad.
Recently, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declined to confirm reports that the number of illegal immigrants attempting to cross into the United States from the southern border has tripled since Joe Biden was sworn in. Biden Administration officials have declined to refer to the situation as a “crisis,” instead preferring the nicer-sounding label of “challenge.”
They just can’t do it — there’s nothing in the world that can get these people to own up to their own mistakes.
We shouldn’t be surprised about any of this. It was well understood that Biden and the Democrats were going to scale back the Trump Administration’s border hawk policies. Everyone in the world knew this — including those who were making plans to cross the border. So, serious question: what else could anyone have possibly expected once those border security measures were reversed? Were illegal migrants supposed to use some honor system that we’re unaware of?
Border security is one of the primary functions of the federal government. Constitutionally, it’s one of the main reasons for it to exist in the first place. Most of the special services progressives want can be implemented at the state or local level if voters truly want them. Unfortunately, the Biden Administration is neglecting its most important duty.
