If there’s anything that characterizes the Biden administration aside from its gross incompetence, it’s the complete lack of awareness of just how incompetent it is. Whether it’s because they want to hide just how badly they’re doing, whether they want to try to bamboozle the American people, or whether they just really don’t know how bad they’re doing, the lack of self awareness of Biden administration officials is breathtaking.
While inflation is making all the headlines, there’s one area in which the administration is arguably doing even worse, and that’s the border. President Trump may have been fought at every turn by Democrats on his border and immigration policies, but there’s no denying that he was effective in stemming the tide of illegal immigrants coming into this country.
Biden, on the other hand, has overseen border entries that are decades-long highs and that show no signs of abating. Even worse, Biden is set to enact policies that could spur even higher levels of immigration, making an already bad crisis even worse. It’s so bad that even Democratic Congressmen are being forced to admit that the border is in a complete state of disarray.
Against this backdrop, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas recently testified before Congress and stated that the Biden administration has effectively managed the crisis. That’s despite widespread reports that the situation at the border is completely out of control.
The only saving grace for Biden is the fact that inflation has become so severe that it has taken up the entire focus of most Americans. Inflation is so bad that Democrats are likely going to take a major beating during the midterm elections this fall. But if voters realized just how bad the situation at the border was, and how many illegal immigrants are coming into this country, you can guarantee that Democrats would fare even worse. And every bit of that shellacking would be fully deserved.
