Joe Biden’s handling of the southern border has been a disaster.
But now, things just went from bad to much worse.
And it’s all because Biden’s Press Secretary was just caught in one massive lie about Biden’s failed border record.
Joe Biden has helped to create one of the worst immigration crises in American history.
With his open borders policies having resulted in a flood of unvetted migrants seeking to enter the United States illegally, Biden has gone so far as to sue states like Arizona who have tried to take matters into their own hands with new border protections that the Federal government has not authorized.
But while Biden has only made the problem worse since taking office, that has not stopped him from trying to take credit for fixing the situation.
In fact, Biden’s team has repeatedly claimed that Biden has done more than enough to solve the crisis.
But now, one top Biden official was just caught red-handed in one massive lie about Biden’s record on the southern border.
And the resulting fallout from the scandal was embarrassing for Biden’s entire team.
Fox News reports, “White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was called out as a liar by Twitter users Wednesday after she claimed that President Biden has visited the southern border.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy brought up the subject during the White House press briefing, asking Jean-Pierre whether Biden would answer House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s, R-Calif., invitation to visit the southern border with him.”
The claim that Biden’s Press Secretary that he had visited the southern border was almost immediately contested by Republicans and reporters alike for being a flat-out lie.
Biden hasn’t been to the border once since taking office.
In fact, he went out of his way to avoid going to the border by appointing Kamala Harris to oversee the immigration crisis, a task which she failed to do anything on before promptly giving up and moving on to other matters.
And now that Republicans in Congress are asking to take Biden to the border to show him just how bad the situation has become, Biden’s own team has been caught lying to the general public that he’s already been there.
According to the Washington Examiner, “The only time Biden has conceivably ‘been to the border’ was during a very brief 2008 drive-by when he landed at El Paso airport and rode in a motorcade to the suburb of Las Cruces, with the route there hugging the U.S.-Mexico border for a few minutes.”
That was more than a decade ago and it took place long before Biden took office.
But that hasn’t stopped liberal hacks withing his administration from lying to the public about Biden having visited the southern border as President, all in an effort to deflect from the failures of Biden’s immigration policy.
The irony is that no one would even be asking Biden to visit the border if he had simply enforced immigration law and secured the border.
