Pres. Biden blames our unsecure border on Donald Trump

This is my blog; you’re going to hear my opinion. But when I write, I base everything I say on facts. I don’t particularly care what other people think about our politicians, I like to find original video, hear them speak for myself, then formulate my thoughts. Such is the case with the Biden administration’s position on immigration and our southern border. There are numerous problems with their words and actions. So, let’s first hear them speak.

Sunday, March 21, 2021 — Just two months after Pres. Biden was sworn in, his new secretary of homeland security, Alejandro Mayorkas, was interviewed by Martha Raddatz of ABC News. She noted the discrepancies in the administration’s statements and asked Mayorkas to explain. He began his response simply, “the border is closed, the border is secure.”

So, this administration thought that the border was not secure when they took office and it only took them two months to fix it. Sounds interesting. How did that do that?

Thursday, September 23, 2021 — Six months after the above interview, Nicolle Wallace of MSNBC interviewed Sec. Mayorkas about what she called an “ongoing humanitarian crisis at the U.S./Mexico border.” She asked Sec. Mayorkas, “what Trump era immigration policies have been…reversed.” In his simple and direct response, he said, “we have rescinded so many Trump immigration policies, it would take so much time to list them.”

So, a quick recap. In 2021, at the beginning of Biden’s time in office, Mayorkas and the Biden administration thought that the border was not secure; their solution was to rescind Pres. Trump’s policies, and now it’s fixed. It’s that simple. “The border is secure.” However, if you watch the rest of this video, or just look at any news broadcast during Biden’s subsequent three years in office, you know that it’s just not true. There is indeed a crisis at our southern border. Simply put, the Biden administration has been lying about it. There’s no other way to describe it. But, now fast forward to 2024 and Pres. Biden is up for re-election. Will he continue to run on the platform that the border was originally not secure, then he took office and fixed it? Will he include border security in his list of accomplishments?

I think he got tired of fighting it, tired of lying, and FINALLY he had to fess up. Now, he admits that the border is not secure (in other words, he admits that he was lying). But, why is it not secure? How can you run for re-election and at the same time say that it’s not secure?

Tuesday, February 6, 2024 — Just over three years into his administration, CNN covered statements by Pres. Biden about what he’s doing with the border. He said, “every day between now and November the American people are going to know that the only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and is MAGA Republican friends.”

What?! It’s amazing that he’s even talking like that, three years after he said that the border is secure. What happened? Let’s take a step back and note the problems here.

First, he was elected and didn’t like Pres. Trump’s policies, so he rescinded them. Two months later, he said the border is secure. Okay, fine, he should have stopped there. But then three years later, he’s running for re-election and he says the border is no longer secure. What happened? His administration was in office throughout that entire time. Either things changed, WHILE HE WAS IN OFFICE, or he’s lying.

Second, why is the border not secure? Well, he told us; he had the nerve to blame the problems on Pres. Trump. Yep, after saying that they rescinded his policies, it’s still Trump’s fault. Do I have to ask? How can that be?

Something is wrong with Pres. Biden. Something is seriously wrong with him. Not only does he not know how to keep our border secure (note that it was already secure when he was sworn in, all he had to do was nothing), he doesn’t know how to keep his stories straight between him and his administration. You can’t just look into a camera, lie to the American people, and expect us to play dumb. We’re not buying it. Well, not all of us anyway.
