It was reported just days ago that a caravan of some 3,000 migrants, some carrying pro-Biden banners, stormed through a barricade of Mexican security forces with their sights set on illegally entering the United States.
Around the same time, the president was asked during a town hall meeting broadcast on CNN if he had plans to visit the southern border.
"I guess I should go down, but the whole point of it is I haven't had a whole lot of time to get down," was his response.
Republican Congressman Pat Fallon, who represents Texas' Fourth Congressional District, blasted the president's border policy on the Fox News Channel late last week, saying, "This is not a crisis what's happening on the southern border; it is a catastrophe. I've been there several times this year, and it's not getting better; it's getting worse. The mainstream media is ignoring it."
He also pointed out that this is the first time on record that the United States has had seven months in a row of over 170,000 illegal border crossings on a monthly basis, and he says Joe Biden has made every state in the country a "border state."
Likewise, Art Arthur, a resident fellow in law and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies, says the chaotic situation on the border is just as much of a humanitarian crisis as hurricanes or floods are.
"The fact is there is a humanitarian disaster going on at the Southwest border and a national security and law enforcement disaster as well," he tells American Family News. "In fact, it's probably moved past disaster to catastrophe, and it's appropriate in this instance that the Biden administration, that the president go to the scene of the disaster that the president's own policies have created on the Southwest border and give hope to the people down there."
But instead of a making the trip, Biden is heading to Europe to push his extreme anti-fossil fuel agenda.
