The biased mainstream media is once again doing everything it can to protect President Joe Biden and his failed policies. CNN analyst Margaret Talev recently claimed that Biden was not responsible for the surge of illegal immigration since January 2021. Talev argued that the immigration crisis is “driven” by conditions in Central and South America, not by Biden’s open-border policies, which have emboldened human traffickers and drug cartels.

This is just a ridiculous argument. It’s clear that Biden’s policies have led to an influx of illegal immigrants and an overwhelmed border patrol. Over 1.2 million illegal immigrants have been encountered at the U.S.-Mexico border during fiscal year 2023 alone, and Fox News has reported that 600,000 migrants evaded Customs and Border Protection in fiscal year 2022. This is unacceptable.
What’s worse is that Biden is actively trying to make the situation worse. On Jan. 31, the Biden administration announced that the U.S. would end the use of Title 42, a public-health measure used by the Trump administration to expel illegal immigrants, on May 11. This move was predicted to lead to a surge of migrants, and that prediction has come true. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas even admitted during a Senate hearing that there would be a surge of migrants after Title 42 expired.
Talev’s argument that there are difficult circumstances in South and Central America is a red herring. The fact is that Biden’s policies have made America a magnet for illegal immigrants, and the situation is only getting worse. Talev is just trying to shift the blame away from Biden and onto other factors.
In conclusion, the biased mainstream media is once again trying to cover up Biden’s failures. The immigration crisis is a direct result of his wrong-headed policies, and he needs to find a way to fix it before it’s too late.
