Biden Once Again Ignores Border Problem

  • Executive, Flyover Country

In Brief: 

Biden has now been president for 23 months, and has promised numerous times to visit the Southern border. But he has yet to visit in the nearly two years that he has been in office. 

The Background: 

When questioned about Biden visiting the border in the past, the White House could only state that Biden “drove past the border,” referring to one drive in 2008 during the Obama/Biden campaign trail. Yet despite illegal crossings bringing drugs and crimes, not to mention the humanitarian crises the border issues are causing, Biden has yet to visit the border as President. 

Earlier this week, it was announced that Biden would be heading to Arizona, less than 100 miles from the Southern border. Yet he will not be visiting the border. 

“Why go to a border state and not visit the border?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Biden.

“Because there are more important things going on. They’re going to invest billions of dollars in a new enterprise,” Biden replied. Glad to know where his interests truly are.

Despite claiming “climate change is the greatest threat facing our world,” President Biden had no problem hopping aboard Air Force One for a 2,000+ mile trip to a 16 minute speech at a factory before promptly flying back to D.C.
