The Washington Post blasted the Biden administration’s management of the border crisis along the nation’s southern border on Sunday, claiming the problem could become the downfall of Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections.
“In its apparent desperation to fashion an immigration strategy that will impose order on increasingly out-of-control migration, the Biden administration has unleashed a torrent of words and goals untethered to specific policies and timetables,” the Post wrote.
“Officials have effectively reversed and rolled back some of the Trump administration’s most pernicious policies, but without a clear road map to address the immediate crisis — a decades-high surge in illegal border-crossing — or the long-term challenge driving migration: dysfunction, disorder and decay in Central America.”
Even the Washington Post is calling Biden’s open border policy “convoluted,” “incoherent,” “toxic” and a “failure.”https://t.co/cULE5yF6Fk

The report follows seven consecutive months of growing illegal immigration numbers. In June, 188,000 illegal immigrants were reported. July saw more than 210,000, according to Fox News.
In March, President Joe Biden tapped Vice President Kamala Harris to address the “root causes” of the issue. Despite discussions with leaders in Mexico and Northern Triangle nations, the surge of illegal immigration has continued.
Further, many illegal immigrants have been diagnosed with COVID-19. An outbreak in McAllen, Texas, last week reported more than 1,500 cases among illegal immigrants.
The Post’s report reveals even mainstream outlets are concerned with the Biden administration’s handling of the border. The problems has grown large enough to greatly damage the left’s political power as the midterm elections draw near.
