House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Wednesday “we’re on a good path at the border” under the leadership of President Joe Biden.
“The fact is that we’re on a good path at the border under the leadership of President Biden … we were in a very bad situation under the Trump administration,” Pelosi said.

U.S. Border Patrol apprehended more than 171,000 illegal immigrants crossing the nation’s southern border in March. Among these numbers include 19,000 unaccompanied minors.
Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to lead the immigration surge in March. Neither Biden nor Harris has announced a trip to visit the situation at the border.
The Biden administration has continued to deny the immigration surge is a crisis, referring to it instead a a challenge.
On Mar. 2, White House press secretary Jen Psaki noted, “We’re going to approach this without labeling. We’re going to approach this with policy, with humanity and with a focus on what we can do to keep these kids safe.”
Though Democrats continue to focus on the safety of immigrant children, a growing number of Americans are concerned for their own safety.
Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX) noted recently, “All the good we did in the last four years to stop illegal immigration is gonna be damaged within months.” Much of the damage has already been done.
