The White House knows that this migrant crisis is a complete political disaster for Democrats that is causing human misery, a spike in illegal entries, and extra cases of Covid in the United States.
So they’ve got to try to make Donald Trump share the blame.
“This new surge we are dealing with now started with the last administration, but it’s our responsibility to deal with it humanely,” Biden said Wednesday.
“There was a serious spike in people heading to the southern border” during the Trump administration because there were natural disasters, crime, poverty, etc., etc.
Trump, Biden said, eliminated funding to deal with the crises in Latin America and “did not engage” in helping those countries.
Get it? The immigration surge is OUR fault because we didn’t help people with their problems.
As if we never gave foreign aid to Latin America. We give lots of countries foreign aid. Their problems are in their own cultures, though, and won’t be solved by throwing U.S. dollars at them.
Since Donald Trump didn’t focus on trying, as the U.S. for decades, to solve Latin American countrys’ problems for them, the surge is HIS fault. That’s what Biden is peddling.
