Washington, D.C. – After nearly 100 days of ignoring the border crisis he created, Joe Biden finally told the truth this weekend by deeming the situation at the border a “crisis.” However, Biden Administration officials are now backtracking the President’s own words, claiming that Joe Biden acknowledging the crisis “doesn’t represent the administration’s official position.” In another 100 days, Joe Biden might even admit his open borders and amnesty agenda created this crisis – until his team back tracks once again.
“A naïve person would hope that Joe Biden’s admission that there is a border crisis quickly leads to a solution,” said NRSC Chairman Rick Scott. “But unsurprisingly, administration officials already walked back Biden’s statement and went straight back to ignoring a crisis that’s worsening every day. The Biden Administration’s embarrassing inability to fully grasp and address the crisis is overwhelming border towns and immigration officials. Will Senate Democrats like Maggie Hassan, Mark Kelly, Catherine Cortez Masto, Michael Bennet, and Raphael Warnock hold the administration accountable for solutions, or will they continue to oppose common-sense border security legislation, putting American families at-risk?”
Despite the Biden-Harris Administration’s blame game and whiplash messaging, it’s no coincidence that their leadership – or lack thereof – led to a record-setting 18,500 unaccompanied children crossing the border in March. With the number of unaccompanied minors on pace to set another record in April, facilities opened to care for these children are closing due to unsafe conditions, further fueling the current crisis.
There’s no mistaking it, the Biden Border Crisis is a disaster from start to finish. Now that Biden’s admitted there is a crisis, will Senate Democrats hold him accountable for solutions?
