Did you know that the White House is now saying that unless Republicans cave into Biden on the debt ceiling, there won’t be enough money to secure the border?
This belongs in Ripley’s Believe It or Not:
Everyone knows the Biden Administration’s border policy is a costly and humanitarian fiasco. Biden has basically signaled to migrants all over the world – get to the Mexican border and you’ve got a hall pass to come in and stay. Biden has spent two years stripping away the Trump enforcement policies, including stopping the building of the wall.
Last week saw 83,000 migrants (that we know of) illegally crossing the border, the highest amount ever recorded during a seven-day period.
So now the Biden administration is with a straight face claiming that if the Republican budget is passed, the Immigration Service won’t have enough money to secure the border.
A memo from Andrew Bates, the White House’s deputy press secretary claims the GOP plan would eliminate 2,000 border patrol agents, slash the Drug Enforcement Agency, terminate 500 agents at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and “allow an additional 150,000 pounds of cocaine, nearly 900 pounds of fentanyl, nearly 2,000 pounds of heroin, and more than 17,000 pounds of meth into our country.”
As if this weren’t enough, the memo claims Republicans want to “single-handedly trigger a recession unless they can deliver this gut punch to the men and women who guard our border.”
Do they REALLY think the American people are THAT stupid?
