One of the biggest mistakes the Biden administration has made, was coming into office and thinking they had a mandate to reverse everything Trump did.
This is especially true when it comes to the border. Trump got the situation under control. He stabilized the problem.
Under Biden, it has been a mess since day one, and according to a new poll from Harvard, a majority of Americans believe this to be true.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Harvard poll: 80% see border disaster, want Trump closure restored, reject teaching critical race theory
The Biden administration is failing big time with its inability to control illegal immigration, adding it to one of several issues that could doom Democrats if left unchecked.
In a new Harvard/Harris poll, an overwhelming 80% said that illegal immigration is a serious issue and one that needs more attention than what President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris are giving.
What’s more, 68% said that signals from Biden’s White House are encouraging illegal immigration, and 55% believe that former President Donald Trump’s border closing policies should have been left in place.
Pollster Mark Penn sized up the results this way: “Immigration is boiling up as an issue.”
Add it to increasing voter concerns about inflation, taxes, and the critical race theory controversy, and this could be a summer of woe for Democrats. “These are not good numbers for Democrats,” said an adviser to House Republicans.
It didn’t have to be this way. This is a problem entirely of the Democrats’ own making.
There is a crisis at our southern border, a crisis created by this administration’s failure to stick with the sound immigration policies we put in place.

According to the FBI, Biden’s border crisis has led to an “epidemic” of drug smuggling, human trafficking, gang activity, & forced labor.
If he truly wants to combat crime, he should reverse his failed policies.

Biden and Democrats own this problem.
