Biden Lays Border Crisis On Trumps Refusal To Cooperate

he president tried to paint a picture of progress at the border.

But it all goes back to Trump, Biden insisted, claiming his predecessor left him “one god-awful mess at the border.”

The president said the critical issue that led to the border crisis was “the failure to have a real transition. The two departments that didn’t give us access to virtually anything were the immigration and the Defense Department,” he said.

When asked by interviewer Craig Melvin about the reality of the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the border — “a 20-year record” — Biden downplayed the extent of the problem.

Biden’s framing of the border crisis as routine goes against comments in a planning document from Immigration and Customs Enforcement cited by the Washington Examiner.

When asked about his pledge to reunite migrant children separated from their parents and told by Melvin that, according to NBC’s reporting, so far no reunions had taken place, Biden said his administration was left in the dark.

Biden, who as a candidate promised to wipe away Trump-era restrictions at the border, said in the interview he urged parents in Central America not to send their children on a journey to the U.S.
