Ever since Joe Biden took office in 2021, the country has seen a historic increase in illegal immigration through the southern border the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has reported encountering more than 2.3 million illegal migrants in the fiscal year 2022 alone and yet President Biden has never visited the disastrous sight since taking office.
Earlier this week Joe Biden was in Arizona, just miles away from the U.S.-Mexico border but despite the distance, he did not visit the border to first-hand experience the crisis his failed policies have caused.
When Fox News White House Correspondent, Peter Doocy asked Biden about his decision to skip the border visit, Biden in complete ignorance, attempted to defend his decision and responded by saying, “there are more important things going on. They’re going to invest billions of dollars in the new enterprise in the state,” he said in reference to a Taiwanese investment in the manufacturing of chips in Arizona.

Border Patrol Agents were not happy with Biden’s response and slammed the President’s ignorance according to the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF).
“MORE IMPORTANT THINGS? This is HIS disaster, he created this catastrophe. The border crisis is a total breach of National Security. Give me a f-ing break…I can’t wait for this clown to be out of office,” one Border Patrol agent told the DCNF in a text message, adding “He’s straight up in denial.”
Biden’s latest comments are “another example of how delusional he is,” another Border Patrol agent told the DCNF.
“It’s in their narrative to downplay the destabilization of the U.S. What could possibly be more important than criminals and terrorists infiltrating the country and tens of thousands of fentanyl overdoses, mostly being young adults,” the agent added.
Furthermore, Brandon Judd, the President of the National Border Patrol Council told the DCNF that the president was more focused on his political goals than securing the border.
“The President’s most fundamental job is the safety and security of the American people. He’s failing. With a record number of people and dangerous drugs flowing across our borders, the President owes it to this country to go to the border and develop a strategy of security. Unfortunately, President Biden’s record speaks for itself. He cares more about politics than American lives,” Judd said.
“I’d ask Biden what’s more important than the worst immigration crisis in U.S. history. I’d also ask if 3 suicides in a matter of weeks is normal,” a third Border Patrol agent told DCNF, referring to the three suicides that recently occurred in a three-week period.
