Well, Biden did it again, folks.
The President of the United States, our clueless leader, has made yet another massive gaffe by accidentally letting it slip that the border crisis, which he and his policies have caused, is actually pretty darn bad. This guy is the very definition of “nincompoop,” which is a word we really don’t use enough, which is a total shame. Especially when it comes to terms used to describe Joe Biden.
“The doddering Democrat made the unforced error after a bike ride Sunday near his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, when asked to comment on the southern border — where illegal crossings have soared to historic highs,” the Western Journal said.
“How do you think things are going at the border, sir?” a reporter went on to ask the president, according to an article from Fox News.
“Much better than you all expected,” Biden boasted with a touch of smugness dangling from his words. He then issued a chuckle.
“The implication is the border crisis is not nearly as catastrophic as many had expected after Title 42 expired on Thursday — but that doesn’t mean the border crisis is anywhere near under control,” the report said.
That’s not exactly a big win for the American people or for Biden’s administration. Title 42 was first instituted during the thick of the coronavirus pandemic by former President Donald Trump. The policy was designed to expel migrants who crossed over the border illegally back to their country of origin without an asylum process.
Now that this policy has gone bye-bye, Title 8 is returning, which requires illegal immigrants to schedule an immigration appointment or to seek asylum in countries they pass through on their way to the border we share with Mexico. If these individuals do not follow the correct process and are caught coming into the U.S. illegally, they are not allowed to return for five years, not even if they try to come in through legal ways.
However, the WJ report said, “However, Title 8 is essentially toothless since it allows migrants who are already here to be released from custody without a court date or a means for authorities to track them.”
“Biden‘s unwarranted bragging occurred shortly after Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed illegal border crossings dropped 50 percent in the two days after Title 42 expired,” the report added.
“Over the past two days, the United States Border Patrol has experienced a 50 percent drop in the number of encounters versus what we were experiencing earlier in the week before Title 42 ended at midnight on Thursday,” Mayorkas said during CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
The DHS secretary then stated that there were 6,300 border encounters on Friday alone, with an additional 4,200 on Saturday. And those figures do not include migrants who managed to get into the country without being caught by authorities.
Just last Tuesday, border apprehensions went up to a brand new high of 10,000 according to Bill Melugin of Fox News.
NEW: Per CBP sources, Border Patrol apprehended more than 10,300 migrants who crossed illegally yesterday, and Monday also broke the 10,000 threshold. I’m told these are the highest single day totals ever recorded – and it’s expected to go even higher after T42 drops tomorrow.

U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz revealed that there were 67,759 illegal migrants caught at the border. Once again, may I remind you, this does not include the number that managed to get away.
It seems President Cheese Brain is under the delusion he’s doing a fabulous job with this whole situation. He’s not. At least not from the perspective of law-abiding citizens.
If you look at it from the perspective of Democrats who want nothing more than to switch up our nation’s demographics to win future elections, then yeah, Biden’s killing it.
