President Joe Biden has a golden opportunity to shock the nation and end the border crisis after months of floundering that has nearly derailed his administration just months into his first term.
Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA) appeared on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” and laid out a plan of action that President Biden could take.
Scalise said, “This is something that President Biden created. He got rid of the … Remain in Mexico policy. It was a highly effective tool President Trump used to work with Mexico to keep people seeking asylum on the other side of the border in Mexico while they make those requests. Most of them are denied, by the way, but what is happening now is because they can just walk right across the border.”
Many of former President Trump’s policies that Biden has foolishly repealed were keeping the southern border under control. It isn’t too late for Biden to walk back his changes and implement Trump’s policies.
Scalise continued, “The drug cartels [are] running America’s southern border from Mexico. It is a national crisis. It is a scandal that was completely created by President Biden’s actions. He can reverse it, by the way. We are calling on President Biden to come down and see for himself; don’t … farm it out to Kamala Harris, who won’t come see it for herself. But he needs to reverse the policy. He created this. He can end it.”
This crisis has stretched on far too long, and it is past time for Biden to put an end to it. However, it would be shocking if Biden did the right thing as that would require the left to acknowledge that Trump was right about the border.
