November saw 73,000 “gotaways” at the southern border —the most ever recorded.
But Joe has better things to do.
According to a Fox News report, President Biden defended skipping a trip to the border while in Arizona claiming there were “more important things going on.”
From Fox News:
Biden made the defense while boarding Marine One at to depart the White House on Tuesday. Biden has never visited the border throughout his presidency, despite the ongoing crisis with record numbers of illegal immigrants crossing the border each month.
“Why go to a border state and not visit the border?” Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked.
“Because there are more important things going on,” Biden responded. “They’re going to invest billions of dollars in a new enterprise.”
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dismissed Republican border visits as “political stunts” last month.
The U.S. has seen record levels of illegal immigration throughout the Biden administration. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported 230,000 border encounters in October alone, an all-time monthly record that broke the previous record set in September.
