The border problem must be fixed, and continued Republican obstruction to border legislation is preventing it from happening. The Republicans are entirely responsible for the mess at the southern border, due to their MAGA obstruction of any laws to fix the issue.

“Every day between now and November the American people are going to know the only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends.”

Dems put the country first, Trump puts himself first.

Biden is President, he could issue any executive order to stop this, he used it to dismantle every Trump border policy, so just go back and reinstate Trump border policies. Simple, if he doesn’t do it, he just continues to help Trump.

Yes, and they see the Republicans blocking any legislation to address the border disaster the Republicans have created.

Trump's plan for the border when he visits...

Take boxes of his new gold sneakers to throw at the illegals (like he did with the paper towels in Puerto Rico) to allow them to run faster to avoid border guards to make it to Bedminster and Mar-A-Lago where their jobs as maids and groundskeepers await...

Congressional Republicans had been largely pleased with the resulting deal. The conservative Border Patrol union endorsed it, and Biden and Republican negotiators repeatedly signaled their joint optimism that a deal would be reached. But it all unraveled after Trump signaled his opposition.

Trump said in a recent campaign rally he’d take the blame from senators for the bill’s collapse..

Good luck selling that.

Nah, if that were true,

So he’s not President????

Yes, and they see the Republicans blocking any legislation to address the border disaster the Republicans have created.

So why Is Biden trailing behind Trump so badly?

53% of Americans want a wall. The biggest jump ever. Yeah, let Dems run on this issue, he had 3 years and he did nothing and now 8 months into an election he goes down to the border. Lol

Every GOP member not in a blood-red state will be taking blame for that.

Same with Dobbs.

He's not, he's winning by a landslide, like he did last time.

Congressional Republicans had been largely pleased with the resulting deal.

The establishment Swamp Senate, yes.

The conservative Border Patrol union endorsed it,

Their boss is Myorkas, of course they will publicly endorse it.

Yes, Conservative House Republicans thankfully killed it.

Trump said in a recent campaign rally he’d take the blame from senators for the bill’s collapse..

Good luck selling that.

And yet his poll numbers still rise.

The establishment Swamp Senate, yes.

Trump, under 91 counts, head of a fraudulent empire, is the king of the swamp.

Yes, Conservative House Republicans thankfully killed it.

That's right, thereby proving that the only party serious about fixing the border problem is the Democrats.

And yet his poll numbers still rise.

Hillary believed the polls too.

The National Border Patrol Council — which represents more than 18,000 agents — said the bill would “drop illegal border crossings nationwide and will allow our agents to get back to detecting and apprehending those who want to cross our border illegally and evade apprehension.”

Stop pretending you care about border security, Trump supporters.

Trump's speech at the border....

"Ladies and gentlemen, just look at the big, beautiful wall that goes from California to Texas - I was the one that built it and forced Mexico to pay for the entire thing - promises made, promises kept"...

"And I'm glad my Dem opponent Joe Obama is here...but where is my fellow Repub challenger, Nikki Pelosi?"

Republicans blame Biden's policies favoring the right to asylum for the flow of migrants, while the White House says that Trump's party is deliberately sabotaging a bipartisan attempt to find a solution.

That’s not a policy, that’s an obligation to the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees, that the US is a signatory to.

Illegal immigration & border security #1 issue in polling, recent NBC poll has BIDEN down 35pts to TRUMP on this issue. It's every poll, Biden DEEP under water.

People tired of increase in violent crime due to illegal immigrants, their kids community centers and schools being used to house them etc. People worry about terrorists entering, believe FBI Director Wray's concern.

Voters want to return to Trump's policies which worked and which Biden reversed on day 1 in Jan 2021. No amount of spin will change the reality America's experienced for 3 years, Open Borders.

Important to note legal action building against Biden Admin for not enforcing laws on the books, for simply releasing immigrants that are undocumented.

Texas Gov. and Lt. Gov. pursuing "Treason" charges against Pres. Biden, for failing to perform his Constitutional duty and secure the borders.

Democrats BADLY miscalculated public illegal immigrant sentiment, US citizens correctly concerned for their safety.

Yep, and the people see Republicans blocking any border security that could fix the issue.

People tired of increase in violent crime due to illegal immigrants, their kids community centers and schools being used to house them etc. People worry about terrorists entering, believe FBI Director Wray's concern.

That's right, and they are very angry that Republicans are blocking legislation to fix it. The Republicans have proven that there is only one party serious about fixing the border problem: The Democrats.

Voters want to return to Trump's policies

No they don't. Trump got trounced last time, before the insurrection, before Dobbs, before banning IVF, and before blocking any border legislation.

The only way Biden can lose is if the election is rigged.

Fake news. If those laws existed, Trump would have used them.

Texas Gov. and Lt. Gov. pursuing "Treason" charges against Pres. Biden, for failing to perform his Constitutional duty and secure the borders.

Is this like that time the Repubs used known fake news from the Kremlin to try to prevent Biden from being re-elected in the biggest election interference case in American history?

Trump wasn't President????

2024? he’s in the hole by 71% disapproval

He's not,

Then you need to read the polls all of them carefully. Now if you can factually prove that Biden is beating Trump and not just the typical European left talking points, I will digress.

*53% **of Americans want a wall. *

Yes, and they see Republicans blocking any legislation moving in that direction.

That same number doesn’t want any humanitarian aid going towards Ukraine, safeguard the homeland first.

2024? he’s in the hole by 71% disapproval

Nah, Biden is far in the lead.

Then you need to read the polls all of them carefully.

Hillary read the polls carefully... How'd that work out for her?

That same number doesn’t want any humanitarian aid going towards Ukraine

Nah, Americans by and far want humanitarian aid going to Ukraine, the polls prove that.

Yeah, this sounds more like Russian interference than fake news, to be fair.

Joe Biden Approaching Treason Over Border Crisis, Texas Lt. Governor Warns

Do you think he is using fake-news supplied by the Kremlin, like last time they tried to say Joe was treasonous? If not, how do you know? You guys thought Smirnov was telling the truth too... and even when you found out he wasn't, you pretended like he was...

Trump's running on his illegal immigrant "DEPORTATION" Plan. Impossible for d's to spin this issue, like High Prices, people see it and feel in a bad way Every Day!

Voters also remember secure borders in Trump Admin.

No, Trump is running on obstructing border legislation plan, proving the only party serious about fixing the problem at the border is the Democrats.

They remember even more secure boders in the Obama/Biden admin.

All the spin in world will not convince voters that Biden's serious about border security and stopping illegal immigrants. +3Years, Voters believe THEIR lying eyes!

All the spin in world will not convince voters that Biden's serious about border security and stopping illegal immigrants.

Not spin- an actual bill, with bipartisan support, support from those working at the border, that promised actual results - killed by Trump.

When secretly polled 71% of agents that were asked had a deep disdain and resentment towards Myorkas and zero confidence in the man. Again, the bill should be killed. Seal the border first and then let’s revisit the Ukraine matter.

It's election time when politicians PLAY the Immigration CARD again.

The Democrats are responding to the issue that the American people have at the top of their list; border legislation. Good leadership listens to their people. Bad leadership obstructs legislation in favor of dragging out the issue for political gains.

And even with that, because the Republicans blocked border security, Biden is way ahead in the polls.

You know nothing of the reality of DC, Congressional negotiations or about polling it seems obvious.

Real issue, Executive actions by Biden Admin on day 1, undoing strong border policies in place. The flood of dangerous illegal immigrants resulted.

Legislation and $SPENDING is not the solution, rather it's Executive actions to reinstate prior border policies. E.g. Remain in Mexico Policy, stop catch and release, etc.

Voters GET IT, why Trump's Crushing Border Issue!

That's what MAGA World says. Here's what MAGA World really thinks:

“Let me tell you, I’m not willing to do too damn much right now to help a Democrat and to help Joe Biden’s approval rating . . . I will not help the Democrats try to improve this man’s dismal approval ratings. I’m not going to do it. Why would I?"
