REPORT: Key Takeaways on Biden's Handling of the Border Crisis during His First Six Months in Office


Biden's presidency has primarily consisted of undoing his predecessor's policies, leading to disastrous results. Biden's first 100 days in office have been a complete and utter failure, starting with the crisis at the border. The Biden administration has shown no transparency regarding the crisis at the border- despite even Democratic lawmakers in border states calling it just that- a crisis. If anything, the Biden administration blames the last administration for their shortcomings regarding the current border crisis. Immigration is already a hot-button issue to all Americans from all sides of the political spectrum but dismissing that there is "no crisis" at the border is blatantly ignorant and dangerous to our country.
