America’s adversaries are laughing, and our border is in disrepair—but the Biden-Harris White House wants you to work on yourself first.
Biden Bunts on Border Visit.
Upon his return from Camp David, President Joe Biden said Sunday that he would visit the border “at some point”—but that he already knows about the situation.
“I know what’s going on in those facilities,” the president said.
DHS chief Alejandro Mayorkas on Sunday stressed that the border is closed, even though unaccompanied minors are being admitted, and didn’t provide any new timeline for opening facilities to accommodate the surge.
Former president Donald Trump trashed the performance in a statement from the Office of the Former President, saying “Even someone of Mayorkas’ limited abilities should understand that if you provide Catch-and-Release to the world’s illegal aliens then the whole world will come.”
The Biden White House is reportedly considering a scheme to fly migrants to northern states for processing due to overwhelmed capacities at the southern border.
Work On Yourselves.
While America’s adversaries revel in making U.S. officials squirm on the world stage, the White House has pivoted to denouncing America’s “own failings” and “confront[ing] them honestly, transparently, and with a determination to make things right.”
The White House released a fact sheet Sunday on “U.S. Efforts to Combat Systemic Racism” and a statement on the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. In the statement, Biden suggested that Americans need to “change our hearts.”
One of the core values and beliefs that should bring us together as Americans is standing against hate and racism, even as we acknowledge that systemic racism and white supremacy are ugly poisons that have long plagued the United States. We must change the laws that enable discrimination in our country, and we must change our hearts . . . We must recognize the ways that racism, gender discrimination, and other forms of marginalization intersect with and compound one another. And, we must all strive to eliminate inequities in our policies, remove barriers to full participation in our societies, and push for open and inclusive processes that respect all people everywhere.
In Thursday’s U.S.-China meeting, Chinese Community Party officials specifically pointed to the Black Lives Matter movement as evidence that the United States lacks moral authority on the world stage.
