Joe Biden Border Photo Surfaces

 January 12, 2023

President Joe Biden is being blasted for a recent photo-op at the border.

Border security advocates with the Federation for American Immigration Reform were critical of Biden for his photo shoot at the border, saying it was "designed to quell criticism."

"President of FAIR Dan Stein blasted Biden in a press release, contending that his photo-op on the border was intended to 'quell criticism' rather than assist any 'serious effort to end a crisis he created,'" reports Breitbart.

Stein said, "this crisis is all by design," quoting then-presidential candidate Joe Biden who spoke about his opposition to border security during a 2019 presidential primary debate when he said "I would, in fact, make sure that there is—we immediately surge to the border. All those people seeking asylum, they deserve to be heard."

"In their first 100 days, the Biden administration took over 90 executive actions on immigration," Stein noted, "many of which dismantled an effective system, making it easier for migrants to illegally enter and stay for good."

"Mark Morgan, a senior fellow at FAIR and a former Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, also criticized Biden for the stunt, noting that he used his trip to the border 'for a photo-op in front of the highly effective border wall he unilaterally scrapped on his first day in office,'" reports Breitbart.

Morgan said that the Biden has stated that he will meet with Border Patrol Agents and "make public" their requests. Morgan said, "If he did, he would have heard exactly what he was told two years ago, that walls work and that we are being overrun."

As of October 2022, an estimated 2.4 million illegal immigrants have entered America since President Biden took office.
