President Biden “sent a message” to the world by undoing the Trump administration’s policies at the U.S.-Mexico border, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) told the Todd Starnes Radio Show Monday.
“It’s overwhelming. We were there last week. It is not a crisis, it is chaos,” the Ohio Republican said after touring a migrant facility in Donna, Texas, calling it “unbelievable” and “alarming” what this administration is doing.
Border Patrol agents report March was the largest, busiest month in this history of border patrol.
“The sad thing is it was totally avoidable if the Biden Administration had just kept in place the policies the Trump administration, President Trump had negotiated and were working,” Jordan explained.
He points to having asylum seekers remain in Mexico instead of staying in the U.S. while they wait for their cases to be heard.
“That policy, undoing that, and then announcing to the world you weren’t going to deport anyone and you were going to stop building the wall, that sent a message and now these numbers are just literally overwhelming,” Jordan said. “It is a chaotic situation and it could’ve been avoided but for the crazy decisions the Biden administration and the Left have implemented.”
When nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes asked the conservative lawmaker why Biden did that, Jordan said what the people on the ground told him.
“The head of the border union, a local sheriff, and some property owners, they said they think it’s intentional,” he said. “They think this administration is intentionally trying to flood the country with now what will be somewhere between 2 and 3 million, if it continues at the pace it’s currently on.”
Jordan praised Trump as “the most successful presidency in our lifetime” and questioned why fellow Republicans – including Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and former GOP House Speaker John Boehner — would attack one another given the current climate.
“Every single institution is now controlled by the left,” Jordan concluded.
“The Left controls big media, they control Big Tech, they control all of the federal government, they control big sports now, we saw that with Major League Baseball’s decision last week. They control all of Hollywood, all of higher education. The Left controls everything, so I don’t see where it helps us to be criticizing the Republican Party, whose trying to fight against the Left who is taking freedoms away from you every chance they get.”
