Biden Border Order: ‘Too Little, Too Late’

President Joe Biden’s sudden U-turn on border restrictions has been almost universally condemned by Republicans and Democrats alike. The former called the move a “stunt,” and the latter accused him of betrayal.

So, why is Biden doing this after claiming previously that he did not have the authority to issue such an order?

Fox offered three reasons.

First the publication cited a New York Times report regarding an open-ended Gallup poll released on April 30 which found that for the third straight month most Americans cited immigration as the most important problem facing the country – the longest stretch that the issue had topped the poll in its 24-year history.

Second, Fox said a report from Reuters found that 56% of registered voters said most or all of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally should be deported.

And third, a Monmouth University poll found that 53% now approve of a border wall.

Fox said several Republicans described the move as a “desperate political stunt to try and stabilize his plummeting poll numbers” ahead of the November election.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) agreed, chalking the move up to Biden’s poor polling numbers.

“President Biden is in trouble politically. He’s polling right up there with fungal infections. Part of the reason for that is that he gave in to the loon wing of his party, and he dissolved the southern border. Now—five months before an election—he has to appear to be willing to do something about it. Hence, this executive order,” he said.
