Watch President Biden’s southern border coordinator Roberta Jacobson try to deflect his responsibility for the rising crisis at the border and inadvertently admit it’s his fault.
A few other choice quotes: “President Biden has made clear from day one that he wants to change our immigration system. Doing so means truly building back better because we can’t just undo four years of the previous administration’s actions overnight.”
Oh, but you can! Biden’s executive orders undid four years’ worth of Trump’s actions to secure the border, and almost overnight, we have a rising humanitarian and security crisis.
“We’ve seen surges before. Surges tend to respond to hope, and there was a significant hope for a more humane policy after four years of pent-up demand.”
So that’s what’s causing those massive new waves of illegal border crossings by migrants and drug gangs: too much hope. And is it really America’s responsibility to comply with the “demand” of people to enter our nation illegally?
Probably the most jaw-dropping moment came when she claimed Biden “inherited” this problem. No, Joe: you inherited a border wall that was nearing completion. The sudden illegal immigration crisis you created all by yourself.
