Buttigieg Claims Biden ‘Did What Needed To Be Done’ With Migrant Surge | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A top administration official defended President Joe Biden on Sunday amid a large spike in border crossings.

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was asked about the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, particularly in Texas where the Department of Defense just bolstered a National Guard deployment, during an interview with NBC News.

    "Let me ask you about what we are seeing at the border. Recently, the administration sent 800 active-duty troops to the Texas border to deal with the surge in migrants, some record numbers this past week. Was the Biden administration caught off guard by this latest surge of migrants?" asked "Meet the Press" moderator Kristen Welker.

    "Well, what you saw was the administration, as always, responding as needed to conditions being proactive where necessary," Buttigieg responded.

    Welker pressed the issue. "Were you caught off guard, though?" she asked again.

    "Look, the president did what needed to be done. And often that involves a rapid response, like the rapid response that this administration directed. But also what we see is a political dynamic where some people seem to prefer that the problem continue, rather than to do something to actually solve it," Buttigieg said.

    "And I have to say, that kind of reminds me of what's going on in the funding fight, where some of the very same people who would line up to take a shot at the administration over something like air travel disruption, are also trying to disrupt us from training more air traffic controllers," he added, alluding to the spending fight in Congress ahead of a possible government shutdown.

    The new military deployment was announced in the midst of reports about illegal crossings spiking to nearly 9,000 a day and Eagle Pass, Texas, declared a state of emergency.

    Government data released last week showed authorities encountering migrants more than 304,000 times around the nation in August, a number which was over 50,000 more than the month before.

    While Republicans have criticized Biden for not doing more to secure the border, Democrats have also gotten fed up as big cities across the country - and far away from the border - feel the crunch of an influx of migrants. Among them is New York City.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) recently told The New York Times that immigration was "arguably" the Biden administration's "weakest issue."


    In response, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre argued that Biden "has done more to secure the border and to deal with this issue of immigration than anybody else."

    Meanwhile, Biden has accused "MAGA Republicans" of "gutting" the immigration system and undermining border security.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

Should the Institutionalized Corruption of the Biden /Harris Administration, in this separate instance the Open Border Policy of our Sovereign Southern Border, be not only tolerated, but sanctioned by the raising of local spending by local politicians to pay for these now visible and known effects of rampant, and out-of-control Illegal Immigration?
  Yes, it is a kind thing to do, and a way that our county, our state can aid in this tremendous effort toward local federal foreign aid; and now, thankfully, in great abundance.
  No, our Constitutional Republic WILL NOT continue to exist, as our United States of America, if we do not control our sovereign borders, to protect our citizens, to keep them solvent and safe.
  I only consider what is topical and popular since my friends, too, only care to do the same.

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.
