Biden on border

Joe Biden near the U.S.-Mexico border. 

This column has written previously about the fundamental difference between Republicans and Democrats when it comes to the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border. When confronted with more than 2 million illegal border-crossers overwhelming U.S. authorities on the border last year — and 250,000 more crossers last month indicates the figure will be even higher this year — Republicans want to find a way to stop, or dramatically reduce, the flow. Democrats want to accommodate it.

That is not an exaggeration, and it is not an oversimplification. Just read what President Joe Biden said recently in Mexico City after his summit with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “We cannot wall ourselves off from shared problems,” Biden said, taking a veiled swipe at the infinitely more effective border policies of his predecessor, President Donald Trump.
