Joe Biden’s border policies are, to say the least, weak. They have enabled a surge in human trafficking, sex trafficking, drugs, and even disease as migrants, feeling invited, surge across the border. In many cases, illegals are taking advantage of gaps in border fencing to come into the country.

Recently, it became known that “migrants” were testing positive for COVID but not being required to quarantine. This means that they are spreading the pandemic throughout our communities. A poll showed that most Americans were concerned by this. The Biden administration though? Not so much.

Despite the President*’s policies being proved a disaster, White House Press Secretary won’t say if Biden will ever commit to fixing the problem. Psaki says the administration’s focus is on “addressing the needs” of migrant children, but she completely failed to address the larger issues presented by Biden’s policies.

Legal immigrants who go through the proper channels should absolutely be considered for entry into the country. But that’s not what is happening now. Joe Biden told illegals who had stayed in Mexico and other countries because of President Donald Trump’s tough border policies to come on over. He opened the border to a surge like we have never seen before.

There have been smaller invasions of our nation than the number who come to America illegally today. In the American Revolution, 50,000 British troops stormed American soil. Border Patrol arrested more than 78,000 illegals in January alone. That doesn’t even factor in the ones who got away or managed to sneak by our lax security without issues. Democrats may not see this as a problem, but the rest of us do.

Joe Biden promised he would be transparent with the American people. Unfortunately, that isn’t what has happened. His administration — most notably White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki — has repeatedly deflected, hidden information, refused to answer simple questions, and all around betrayed Americans where that promise is concerned. On Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace held Psaki to account for all that.

“The only way we know how bad conditions are for some 5,000 minors in his Border Patrol facilities is because of these pictures that members of Congress have released on their own,” Wallace said. “Jen, these kids are living in these conditions now.”

“They’re not living in these conditions some indeterminate time from now when the president says everything will be fixed,” Wallace continued. “So why not allow reporters and camera crews in on a pool basis based domain safely to show the American people what’s happening in those border patrol facilities right now?”

“Chris, we are absolutely committed to that, the president is committed to that, I’m committed to that, Secretary Mayorkas is committed to that,” Psaki replied before Wallace interrupted, “When?”

“We want to provide access into the border patrol facility,” Psaki insisted. “We are mindful of the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic. We want to keep these kids safe, keep the staff safe, but we are absolutely committed to transparency and providing access to media to the border patrol facilities, and we are working to get that done as soon as we can.”

“But just to clarify, you allowed a camera crew in to see the HHS facilities, but we are talking about here are the Border Patrol facilities, the detention cells, you know there is a law that they are not allowed to be there for more than 72 hours, many of them are there for ten days,” Wallace said. “At this point, in terms of allowing access to Border Patrol facilities for reporters, you are being less transparent than the Trump administration.”

This is true. The Trump administration was the most transparent in the history of the United States. Biden and Democrats love to attack President Trump, but the fact is that he was always and always will be interested in serving the American people. Watch it below:

As Democrats told us a lot before the election, it’s important to quarantine when you are infected with COVID. But now that Biden is President*, it just doesn’t seem all that important — at least as far as illegals are concerned.

Recently, it was reported that more than 100 illegals who had tested positive for COVID were released into the wild in Texas. Were they forced to quarantine like American citizens would be? Tracked? Humiliated just for being a little sick? Not at all — they were advised to quarantine and sent on their way wherever they wanted to go. And many said they didn’t plan to follow the quarantine advice. In other words, these COVID-positive illegals are out there right now infecting Americans.

Asked if illegals are forced to quarantine, Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki pretended that she didn’t know the answer:

“I just wanted to convey because I knew you were asking a good question here,” Psaki said. “That’s the very specific processes that are taken for each scenario…um, and certainly, there are with these in with the individuals who are coming across alternatives who are treated with again noted sometimes ankle bracelets as they come across while they’re waiting for adjudication of their cases.”

“Those are the steps that are taken. Those are the recommendations that are made…and I just noted that testing is…there’s a proposal for testing all of these individuals as they come across…so that’s what our policy processes are,” she continued. “Still, in terms of specific data and numbers, I would certainly refer you to CBP, or I’m happy to talk to them as well…”

In other words, the reports coming out of Texas are accurate and she doesn’t want to admit it — despite the administration promising transparency.

Joe Biden’s failed immigration policies are putting Americans at risk in a number of ways — and one of them contributes to the thousands of COVID deaths we see daily on his watch.
