Joe Biden came into office promising to undo all of Donald Trump’s achievements.
But now Democrats are fuming.
That’s because Joe Biden publicly admitted one retreat that left Donald Trump smiling.
In the month of March, Border Patrol agents apprehended 170,000 illegal aliens entering the country.
That is the greatest number of attempted illegal border crossings in 15 years.
The staggering total does not include the number of illegal aliens that successfully snuck into the country.
Biden is also holding a record 19,000 illegal alien kids in cages.
Despite the scope of the catastrophe, Biden and his administration refused to call what’s happening on the border a crisis, preferring to use the word “challenge.”
That all changed when Joe Biden spoke to reporters before departing for Delaware.
Socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hammered Biden for breaking his campaign promise to lift the cap on refugee admissions that Donald Trump set his last year in office at 15,000 to 62,500 in 2021.
Biden could not hold firm against the outcry from the left and folded on maintaining Donald Trump’s refugee limit.
In an encounter with reporters Biden claimed he went back on his word because of what he called the “crisis” at the border.
“The problem was that the refugee part was working on the crisis that ended up on the border with young people,” Biden told the press. “We couldn’t do two things at once. But now we are going to increase the number.”
White House press secretary Jen Psaki put out a statement clarifying Biden’s remarks.
“The President’s directive today has been the subject of some confusion,” Psaki explained. “Last week, he sent to Congress his budget for the fiscal year starting in October 2021, which honors his commitment. For the past few weeks, he has been consulting with his advisors to determine what number of refugees could realistically be admitted to the United States between now and October 1. Given the decimated refugee admissions program we inherited, and burdens on the Office of Refugee Resettlement, his initial goal of 62,500 seems unlikely.”
The Biden administration was afraid to use the word “crisis” to describe the reality of the situation at the border because they are afraid to draw attention to the failure to control illegal immigration and the fact that Biden’s policies and rhetoric invited the surge of illegal aliens pouring into the country.
But when Biden faced a rebellion on his left, Biden quickly resorted to using the word “crisis” to explain why he got on the wrong side of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats.
Biden’s inability to stand up to the left-wing base of his party also does not bode well for fights over eliminating the filibuster, court-packing or passing legislation that would tilt every election in the Democrats’ favor and turn America into a one-party state.
