The Washington Post recently published a story about how Americans view Joe Biden’s presidency and his handling of major issues.
At first glance, many would never know that most Americans strongly disapprove of Biden’s handling of the border crisis and immigration, among other areas.
A Washington Post-ABC News poll found that Americans favor Biden’s handling of the coronavirus.
However, buried in the 25th paragraph of the story, the Washington Post finally admits that Americans are not happy with Biden’s handling — or lack thereof — with the historical surge in migration at the southern border.
“One low mark for the president comes on the issue of immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border, where 33% of Americans say they approve of how he is handling the issue, amid a surge of migrants attempting to cross into the country. A slight majority (51%) say they disapprove, including 90% of Republicans. Sixteen percent overall say they have no opinion,” the Post reported.
“Among fellow Democrats, a tepid 63 percent majority approve of Biden’s handling of immigration at the southern border, while 15 percent disapprove and the rest offer no opinion,” the report added.
“Political independents split on Biden’s overall performance, with 45 percent approving and 43 percent disapproving. While 56 percent of independents approve of Biden’s handling of the pandemic, half as many approve of his handling of immigration at the southern border,” it continued.
A whopping 500,000 illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border into the United States since Joe Biden appointed Kamala Harris as the “border czar.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, only three months have passed since Harris took on the responsibility and the half a million figure only refers to those who have been apprehended.
Let’s repeat that: we are only aware of 500,000 illegals who have been caught at the U.S.-Mexico border in the last three months.
Image how many got into the country that we do not know about.
Data from CBP says around 180,000 immigrants are being caught per month.
In April agents arrested 178,854 illegal immigrants, the highest monthly figure for 21 years. That figure was then surpassed in May as agents apprehended 180,034 illegals.
Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott released a statement to his website slamming Kamala Harris for only “flying over the border at 35,000 feet” while she met with other world leaders instead of addressing the Biden border crisis.
“Flying over the border at 35,000 feet doesn’t count as a visit. Now, 123 days since taking office, it’s shocking to see the lengths to which President Biden and Vice President Harris will go to avoid seeing the border crisis for themselves,” he said.
He continued: “Apprehensions at the border rose above 178,000 in April alone, nearly 6,000 a day. This is about the safety of American families. We must secure the border now.”
