A new poll reveals 54 percent of Americans believe the surge in immigration along the nation’s southern border is a crisis — despite the White House’s desperate denial of what the vast majority of Americans can clearly see with their own eyes.
“Most Americans, 54%, believe the situation with migrants and unaccompanied children showing up at the U.S.-Mexico border is currently a crisis,” the ABC News/Ipsos poll reported.
“Forty-two percent characterize the situation as a serious problem, but not a crisis. Just four percent say it is not a serious problem.”
The Biden administration continues to refuse calling the situation a crisis. White House press secretary Jen Psaki has noted it instead as a challenge.
The poll follows a week in which numerous leaked photos and videos have appeared in the media from President Joe Biden’s immigrant housing locations. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) traveled with 18 GOP senators last week to highlight the issue.
Biden appeared in an ABC interview last week to state,
I can say quite clearly don’t come over. So don’t leave your town or city or community. We’re gonna make sure we have facilities in those cities and towns run by department of — by DHS and also access with HHS, the Health and Human Services, to say you can apply for asylum from where you are right now.
When Biden tells immigrants to stop coming, you know it’s serious. Whatever he calls the situation, Americans realize we’re in an immigration crisis that needs immediate attention.
