Biden Says He ‘Intends’ To Visit Southern Border For First Time During International Summit | Eastern North Carolina Now

    President Joe Biden told reporters Wednesday at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport that it's his "intention" to visit the southern border for the first time since taking office nearly two years ago.

    Reporters asked Biden about the border while the president promoted his administration's infrastructure agenda at Kentucky's Brent Spence Bridge.

    "We're working out the details now," Biden said.

    Amid a record-breaking number of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States from Mexico, Fox News reported that Biden said he intends to visit the border during his trip to the North American Leaders' Summit on January 9-10, where he has meetings with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

    Sources allegedly told The Wall Street Journal that Biden would not make a policy announcement if he visited the border.

    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said repeatedly in a recent press briefing that the president's current focus "is to come up with solutions ... making sure that we have the resources to manage what - the challenges that we're seeing at the border."

    "If congressional Republicans are serious about dealing with the challenges that we're seeing at the border, they will assist," she said, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    The president's remarks come after he told reporters last month that "there are more important things going on" than visiting the U.S. southern border while in Arizona to tout Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.'s announcement of a second manufacturing chip plant in the Grand Canyon State.

    Under Biden's rule, his administration has done away with Trump-era immigration policies, which have resulted in a higher number of overall encounters at the border.

    Pew Research reported the U.S. Border Patrol reported encounters with migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border in the 2021 fiscal year were more than quadruple the number of the prior fiscal year and the highest annual total on record.

    The U.S. saw 2,378,944 encounters at the border in fiscal year 2022, excluding the nearly 600,000 known "gotaways" who escaped custody altogether.

    Customs and Border Protection sources reported that authorities encounter an average of 6,858 crossings daily.

    By some estimates, there have been more than 4.5 million encounters at the border under the Biden administration alone. Millions of those individuals have been released into the U.S.

    Biden's potential visit also comes after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 last week to keep the pandemic-era limit on immigration, referred to as Title 42, in place indefinitely, which allows officials to turn away migrants at the border to prevent the spread of COVID.

    Justice Neil Gorsuch, the only dissenting conservative justice to join all of the Supreme Court's liberal justices in Tuesday's ruling, said, "the current border crisis is not a COVID crisis."

    "And courts should not be in the business of perpetuating administrative edicts designed for one emergency only because elected officials have failed to address a different emergency," Gorsuch wrote. "We are a court of law, not policymakers of last resort."

    Customs and Border Protection officials warned lawmakers that approximately 50,000 foreigners were waiting to cross into the United States once Title 42 ended.

    The Biden administration has pushed for the pandemic-era policy to end as immigration advocates filed lawsuits arguing Title 42 is outdated since COVID treatments have improved and that it "goes against American and international obligations to people fleeing to the U.S. to escape persecution."

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
