The situation at the southern border has exploded into an all-out crisis and it is no one’s fault but Joe Biden.
At the White House however, adviser Roberta Jackson tried to make it all about Trump.
Because of course she did.

Biden adviser admits immigration policy ‘may have driven’ migrant surge, encouraged ‘smugglers’
Southern Border Coordinator Roberta Jacobson said Wednesday that it was not a “coincidence” border crossing attempts spiked after President Biden took office.
Asked if surges at the border could be linked to Biden’s undoing of Trump-era border policies, Jacobson said: “We’ve seen surges before. Surges tend to respond to hope, and there was significant hope for a more humane policy after four years of pent-up demand.
“There was a hope for a more humane policy after four years of pent-up demand, so I don’t know if I would call that a coincidence,” said Jacobson, who spoke during the daily White House briefing. “But the idea that a more humane policy would be in place may have driven people to make that decision, but perhaps, more importantly, it definitely drove smugglers to express disinformation, spread disinformation about what was now possible,” said Jacobson, who also serves as special assistant to the president, told reporters. She was also ambassador to Mexico from 2016 to 2018.

They’re incapable of owning their failures.
