Biden: ‘Not my fault’, border insecure for 10 yrs

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

President Joe Biden said that the southern border hasn’t been secure for the “last 10 years,” a response he gave before addressing a bipartisan group of mayors at the White House on Friday.

When asked by Fox News White House Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich if the U.S.-Mexico border is secure, Biden said, “No, it’s not.”

“I haven’t believed that for the last 10 years, and I’ve said it for the last 10 years. Give me the money.”

Biden’s evaluation of the state of surging migration at the border comes as he seeks the passage of a supplemental spending package that is currently stuck in Congress. The legislation would include border measures that would satisfy the demands of Republicans in Congress, who have stalled the funding that includes money for Ukraine, a priority of the president, to defend itself in its war against Russia.

“I believe we need significant policy changes, including changes in our asylum system, to ensure we have the authorities we need to control the border,” Biden said in his speech on Friday. “I’m ready to act.”
