He can never make up his mind, and it’s hurting the country.
Biden and his administration have not been handling the migrant crisis well which has lead to three liberal media outlets posting statements to try to defend his incompetence.
The Washington Post wrote:
President Biden overruled his top foreign policy and national security aides, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, when he kept in place the Trump administration’s record low cap on the number of refugees admitted to the United States, according to three people familiar with the matter, a decision that was reversed after a public outcry.
… In the end, the president’s own misgivings fueled the decision more than anything else, the people said.
The New York Times wrote:
Inside the White House, the president had made his views clear, according to several people familiar with his objections to the idea of capping refugee admissions at 62,500. With crossings at the border rising, he did not intend to sign off on that number.
Though the issues are separate, administration officials predicted raising the number of refugees, as Biden had promised to in February, would turbocharge the false claim on the right that the administration was “opening” its U.S. borders.They feared the ramifications, as they would come at a time when the White House is also asking Republicans to negotiate on a massive infrastructure package.
“You’re not going to throw gasoline on top of that fire,” said a person briefed on internal discussions, who described it as one of the factors considered. “Fox News would have had a field day with it. It’s the easiest talking point for every Sunday show.”
He called for Kamala Harris to deal with the crisis, but she’s not doing better. Things will get worse if Biden continues to do nothing.
The border stampede is trampling Biden’s immigration plans & there’s little sign that he is in control.
We’re left with rising inflows & dropping polls, plus divided deputies, political theatrics, migration zealots, skewed media, and influential donors.https://t.co/8NGoCUoMmF
