Former Biden Aide Slams Democrats for Defending Joe Biden

The situation at the American southern border continues to deteriorate by the day. Since the 2020 presidential election which occurred at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the former president Donald Trump was defeated by the democratic challenger Joe Biden in a hotly contested contest. Trump became a one term president and Biden assumed office in January 2021. Since then, it is estimated that some 5.5 million or more illegal migrants have been allowed to enter the country in an unprecedented and shocking occurrence. The federal government has appeared unable to address the situation at the border and the crisis continues to worsen with each passing day. Tens of thousands of migrants have arrived daily, and many have flooded major cities. 

These individuals have largely been housed on taxpayer expenses in hotels and other buildings, clothed and fed. Even in Utah, a Republican dominated state, healthcare was given to the children of illegal migrants. In places like Staten Island, New York, migrants were housed in apartment living complexes much to the chagrin of local residents. Even a school in Brooklyn was closed for a day to temporarily house migrants and parents were outraged. As the problem worsens, states like Texas and Florida are taking matters into their own hands by installing barbed wire. 

The issue of immigration has been a central focus this election cycle and remained so during the first presidential debate held on June 27th. The former 45th president of the United States Donald Trump frequently used this issue to attack Biden during the discourse. Biden had a paltry performance, and Democrats have begun to panic, suggesting it may be time to replace the president with another candidate. One anchor from CNN, Kate Bedingfield claimed that the grand picture hasn’t changed, and that Biden is still in a tight race. Michael LaRosa, a former press secretary for the first lady Jill Biden, criticized the media official on Twitter.
