President Joe Biden was asked multiple questions during his first formal White House press conference about the crisis on the border in which he spent his time blaming former President Trump and then admitted that he was “flattered” the surge of migrants was due to his own presidency.
Trump derangement syndrome is when you blame everything on Trump, even when he’s been out of office for months. President Biden responded to questions regarding the historic numbers of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S-Mexico border by first insisting that the surge began under the Trump Administration.
While admitting that there has been a “serious spike” in people heading to the Southern Border, he said it “started with the last administration, but it’s our responsibility to deal with it humanely.” He also claimed that serious natural disasters and climate change in Latin America were some of the reasons why people were fleeing their countries. When liberals don’t have Trump to blame for something, they jump straight to “climate change.” It’s like clockwork.
Reporters asked questions regarding the number of migrant children seeking asylum, in which over 15,000 kids are currently being held in migrant facilities. Numbers continue to soar and facilities have bypassed COVID-19 guidelines to accompany the surge. While the mainstream press has been denied access into facilities and there have been gag orders placed on all U.S Border Agents, children have reported that they are being denied phone calls to their family, denied shower access, haven’t seen sunlight for days, and are sleeping on the concrete ground. They are also being held there past the 3-day legal limit.
When NBC News Kristen Welker asked Biden when reporters will be allowed to visit the Border Patrol facilities he responded that he didn’t know but that his “plan very shortly is underway – to let you have access to not just them, but other facilities as well.” While claiming that he is committed to transparency, he said he had no specific timeframe for expanding press access.
“I guess I should be flattered people are coming because I’m the nice guy – that’s the reason why it’s happening – that I’m a decent man, or however it’s phrased, that’s why they are coming, because they know Biden’s a good guy,” Biden said.
While he continued to claim that the surge “happens every year,” he refused to answer questions regarding the historical waves of illegal immigration. He continued to point to claims of climate change such as “heat in the desert” and “circumstances in their country.”
President Biden has also proposed to legalize most of the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S but denied the charge at the press conference. He seems to care more about the “flattery” of many kids who are victims of human and sex trafficking by the Cartel than solving the crisis in the first place and protecting U.S citizens.
President Biden “doesn’t know” when the press will get access to these migrant facilities and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki will “circle back” with her answers on the border. Not a single Biden Administration official will give the American people a solid answer after promising nothing but “transparency” on the campaign trail, but that’s what Democrats like to do. Make empty promises to fulfill whatever political agenda is needed. Even if that includes 11 million illegal votes.
