Biden Is Chasing President Trump To The Southern Border Amid Plummeting Poll Numbers & Years of Devastating Open Border Policies

  • House Republicans
On Thursday, Joe Biden will be chasing President Trump to the Southern Border after years of neglecting the Border Crisis and implementing a Far Left open border agenda. It comes at a time when immigration has surged to the number one issue Americans are concerned about and Biden is over 30 points underwater on his handling of the issue. Despite the severity of this crisis, it will be just the second time Biden has visited our Southern Border. 
A new Gallup poll released today found that 28% of Americans, the highest percentage ever in a Gallup poll, think immigration has become the number one issue Americans are concerned about, and a record-high 55% of Americans think the large number of illegal immigrants that have entered the United States under Biden is, “a critical threat to U.S. vital interests.” 
This Gallup poll comes on the same day that Harvard-Harris released a poll showing that 65% of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of America’s immigration crisis while just 35% approve. According to RealClearPolitics polling average on immigration, Biden is 33.3 points underwater on the issue
But, just last month, Biden’s White House repeatedly dodged reporters' questions about whether Biden would be visiting the Southern Border anytime soon, and Biden himself had said he had done everything he could to secure our Southern Border
On January 6, 2024, ABC’s Whit Johnson asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre if Biden had any plans to visit the Southern Border soon, Jean-Pierre dodged the question saying, “The president was there last year.”
On January 22, 2024, Jean-Pierre was asked how bad the Biden border crisis had to get for Biden to visit the Southern Border. Jean-Pierre once again dodged the question. 
MAKE NO MISTAKE: Joe Biden inherited a secure Southern Border from President Trump and policies to keep our borders secure. But since day one, Biden and his Administration have worked tirelessly to implement their failed Far Left open border policies, which have turned every community into a border community and destroyed countless American families. House Republicans know that border security is national security, and we know the best way to secure our borders is by reimplementing President Trump’s successful policies. That is why we passed the strongest border security bill in history, which Chuck Schumer and Extreme Senate Democrats have refused to bring for a vote.
