Two recent polls suggest a large majority of Americans are aware of the immigration crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border even if the Biden administration – which stands accused of creating the crisis – keeps claiming the crisis doesn’t exist.
A new Rasmussen poll finds that 67% of voters say the situation at the border is a crisis, and a related poll by Hill-Harris found that 76% of voters agreed the situation on the border is a crisis that “needs to be addressed immediately.”
Gary Bauer, chairman of the Campaign for Working Families, says the Biden administration might deny there is a crisis caused by a wave of illegal immigrants because, in reality, they welcome the flood.
“Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and their administration, do not think they made a mistake when they deconstructed everything President Trump did at the border,” Bauer says. “They don't think they're making a mistake with their rhetoric.”
The only problem the Democrats likely see, he adds, is that the numbers are so overwhelming it is impossible to keep the controversy off the front page of the newspapers.
The media has been mocked for its soft-touch approach to Biden administration permitting inhumane and crowded conditions for thousands of illegal aliens, most of them teenage boys, after Donald Trump was blasted for allowing "kids in cages" during his administration.
Vice President Harris, meanwhile, is being blasted for laughing when a reporter asked her if she planned to visit the border.
"Not today," Harris said in her trademark cackle-like laugh, "but I have before and I'm sure I will again."
Speaking on the Todd Starnes Show, U.S. Rep. Beth Van Duyne (R-TX) told the program it was sad to watch Harris laugh at the border situation when the conditions for the minors are so terrible.
