Joe Biden Blames Republicans for Border Invasion
Claims Partisan Hostility Is Problem
President Joe Biden blamed the Republican Party during a Thursday White House speech for the southern border invasion.
Biden’s statement that Republicans are to blame for the border crisis was followed by a claim that partisan divisiveness has prevented immigration solutions. Under Democrat rule, 2.2 million illegal migrants have overrun the border in fiscal year 2022, a 33 percent increase from 2021.
“I sent congress a comprehensive piece of legislation that would completely overhaul what has been a broken immigration system for a long time,” Biden said.
Biden alleged preventing illegal immigration is a priority but Republicans have opposed his plan.
“Cracking down on illegal immigration, strengthening legal immigration and protecting dreamers, those with temporary protective status, like farm workers, are part of the fabric of our nation,” Biden continued. “But congressional republicans have refused to consider my plan and they rejected my retest for an additional $3.5 billion to secure the border and funds for 2,000 new asylum personnel.”

After blaming the GOP, Biden said the politics of divisiveness have prevented solutions from resolving the invasion.
“Our politics have been so divisive. I know it’s getting much better, but it’s been so darned divisive [that] it clouds the picture,” Biden said. “Republicans haven’t been serious about it at all [about a solution]. Come on. They haven’t been serious at all all.”
“It is clear that immigration is a political issue and extreme republicans will always run on, but now they have a choice. They can keep using immigration to score political points or they can help solve the problem. They can help solve the problem and come together to fix the broken system,” Biden said.
Well that’s clever. Biden says he’s announcing new measures to deport those without “a legal right to stay.” But he’s just said that anyone who claims asylum has a right to stay.
In other words, he’s telling potential border crossers that claiming asylum is their golden ticket. pic.twitter.com/Mq22cpUK7s
