During an interview on CBS This Morning, Biden’s DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was forced to admit that the number of illegal immigrant children crossing the border is still “high.” This goes against Biden’s claim that the border is “under control.” During an interview with NBC’s Craig Melvin that aired last Friday, Biden said, “It’s way down now; we’ve now gotten control.”
Watch the video below where the DHS Secretary tries to conflate moving immigrants from DHS custody to all over the US and the rate at which illegals are crossing the border. They may be processing illegals quickly, but they’re still crossing at record numbers.
Biden previously announced that the border is “under control,” but anyone who has been paying attention is not buying it.
Newsweek reports that even Democrats pushed back on Biden’s big lie. Texas Democrat Henry Cuellar had this to say about Biden’s claim:
“To say that we have everything under control—you know I’m supportive of President Biden, I’m a supporter of his—but we’re not paying attention to the border’s communities. And it’s not under control. I can tell you that.”
Arizona Democrat Mark Kelly also criticized Biden for his comments saying the border is under control.
If Biden calls floods of illegals found in stash houses or running through back yards getting the border “under control,” it would be frightening to see what he thinks is out of control.
