The White House is once again playing the blame game, pointing fingers at Congress for the ongoing crisis at the border. But what they conveniently fail to mention is that President Biden himself rolled back several key policies put in place by his predecessor, Donald Trump, on his very first day in office. Talk about a day one disaster!
On January 20, 2021, Biden proudly signed a series of executive orders dismantling Trump’s border wall construction and revoking his deportation orders. And just to add fuel to the fire, the Department of Homeland Security issued a 100-day moratorium on all deportations. It’s no wonder we’re seeing a surge in illegal immigration under Biden’s watch.
Here’s What Biden’s White House Is Conveniently Leaving Out In Its Newest Border Security Narrative https://t.co/bP6PA49hMk

According to federal data, Border Patrol has recorded over 2.2 million encounters at the southern border in fiscal year 2022, and over 2 million in fiscal year 2023. These numbers are absolutely staggering! But instead of taking responsibility for his own actions, Biden and his White House cronies are pointing fingers at Congress and demanding that they pass his “day one” immigration plan.
Let’s be clear, the border crisis is not Congress’ fault. It’s Biden’s fault. He dismantled effective policies put in place by Trump and opened the floodgates to illegal immigration. And now he expects Congress to clean up his mess? Give me a break!
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has the audacity to claim that taking care of our border is not too complicated. Really? Well, it seems pretty complicated to me when you’re dealing with record-breaking numbers of illegal border crossings. But I guess in the fantasyland of the Biden administration, everything is rainbows and sunshine.
Biden also rescinded Trump’s order to withhold federal funding from sanctuary jurisdictions and to remove illegal aliens from the country. So not only is he failing to secure our border, but he’s also allowing sanctuary cities to flourish and protect criminals who have no right to be here in the first place. It’s a slap in the face to law-abiding citizens and a complete disregard for the rule of law.
It’s no wonder that former DHS Secretary Chad Wolf is speaking out against Biden’s disastrous policies. He rightly points out that Biden campaigned on a message of open borders, and his actions have only reinforced that message. By telling ICE removal officers that crossing the border illegally is no longer grounds for removal, Biden is essentially saying, “Come on in, everyone is welcome!”
And let’s not forget the recent battle between the state of Texas and the Biden administration over control of an area of the southern border in Eagle Pass. Texas has taken measures to protect its citizens by erecting razor wire and refusing to back down, much to the dismay of the Biden administration. But the Supreme Court ruled that federal authorities can take down the wire, once again undermining the efforts of states to protect their own borders.
The bottom line is that the border crisis is a result of Biden’s misguided policies and lack of leadership. He can try to blame Congress all he wants, but the American people aren’t buying it. It’s time for Biden to take responsibility for his actions and start implementing real solutions to secure our border and protect our nation.
