During a primary presidential debate, Joe Biden told migrants to 'surge' to the border. Biden said, if I become president 'we immediately surge to the border, all those people seeking asylum, they deserve to be heard. That's who we are.' Thousands listened. The United States Border Patrol is overwhelmed. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement is also overwhelmed. So are immigration courts.
It's a crisis.
A crisis is defined as an unstable or crucial time or state of affairs in which a decisive change is impending.
The Biden Administration is ignoring this crisis.
That's step one in their crisis management strategy. Ignore it. Step two is to downplay it. Time and time again the Biden Administration trots out Department Of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas or Spokeswoman Jen, Um, Psaki to say they are clearing up the backlog.
Here's how they are clearing the backlog. The administration is transferring people in Border Patrol custody to the Department of Health and Human Services. Then most migrants are released from custody into America.
It's a bait and switch.
It's the same way the administration is handling the crisis in the eastern portion of the US as the Colonial Pipeline has been shut down. President Biden and his team are ignoring it and downplaying it. This as demand for gasoline is making it hard to come by. Thousands of gas stations are out of gas.
All because of a ransomware attack on critical American infrastructure. Think about this. An outside organization that may have state ties shut down an oil pipeline that runs from New York to Houston. It's a huge deal. An act of war.
But Biden continues to ignore and downplay. Nothing to see here.
Psaki downplayed inflation this week saying it's 'temporary and transitory.'
Then there's the Middle East. Israel and Hamas are lobbing missiles back and forth at each other. Over 60 have been killed so far and the Biden Administration continues to basically ignore and downplay it. Today, President Biden said during a COVID vaccine update he would be putting out a statement soon. All he said is he hopes it ends soon.
Way to lead.
As we've been saying, Biden gonna Biden.
