The Biden-Harris regime is demonstrably feckless and seemingly unaware or more likely: willfully ignorant of the mounting CRISIS at the Border with Mexico. Julie Pace is the AP beat reporter for the Whitehouse. Pace appeared this week on Fox news with Chris Wallace and was asked by Wallace if the Biden admin had a plan to get his Border Crisis under control. Pace answered, “Well, they don’t have a plan at the moment to get this under control.” the DailyWire reported.
Even the Associated Press, long the cheerleaders for the Democratic Party have to confess that Biden has no clue and doesn’t seem to want one either. The masks are coming off, the new regime is so busy working to dismantle the gains of the Trump Administration that they cannot be bothered with protecting the country.
Willfully Ignorant of The Escalating CRISIS
Not only do the Democrats have no plan, they don’t even think there is even a problem! Newly minted Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas was asked by a reporter “Do you believe that right now there’s a crisis of the border?”
“I think that the — the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing and we have our resources dedicated to — to managing it.” – Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas
Here’s the exchange in full context between Fox’s Chris Wallace and the Associated Press’ Julie Pace:
WALLACE: Julie, the Department of Homeland Security put out a report this week. It wasn’t put out to the public, but it was leaked, that they are now projecting 117,000 unaccompanied minors that are going to cross the border this year, way over what we thought was a very serious surge in 2019. Is that sustainable for the — for the Biden White House to say, well, it’s not a crisis, it’s a challenge, we’re managing it, and — and, more importantly, do they really have a plan to get this under control?
PACE: Well, they don’t have a plan at the moment to get this under control. We do know that the White House is dispatching some officials to the border to try to see this situation firsthand. But, right now, they’re caught in this situation where they are saying that the policy steps that we’ve seen Biden take on emigration, essentially rolling back a lot of the Trump administration’s deterrence policies should not be read by migrants as an open invitation. Do not amass at the border. This does not mean you can get across easily.
But for all of their talk about that, all of their messaging on it, that’s not the message that is actually being received by a lot of migrants and so you do have this situation where people are increasingly coming to the border, families with young children do feel like this is a moment where they can get into the United States. They do feel like there’s going to be a more receptive policy from the Biden administration.
So this is the challenge that the White House has. If they don’t think that their policy actually is an open invitation, then they have to signal that more clearly because that is — that is, obviously, not the way it is being interpreted at the moment.
It’s been exhaustively reported by most outlets concerned with the truth that the Biden-Harris regime has been deliberately sabotaging the security of the border in a cynical effort to undermine the legacy of President Trump and satisfy their campaign promises to allow open immigration. But in light of recent massive surges in illegal immigration plus smuggling into the nation this is especially egregious.
Biden, Harris and most especially DHS head Mayorkas may give the appearance of slack jawed ignorance, but they know PRECISELY what they’re doing, and they’re doing it intentionally to place American citizens in danger.
