After Months of Lying and Refusing to Visit the Border, Joe Biden Calls Border a “Crisis” (Video)
Joe Biden described the situation at the border as a “crisis” on Saturday after months of relentless government refusal to use the word to describe the overwhelming number of migrant children and families who many of them in response to Biden’s sudden turnaround President Trump’s border and immigration policy came across the border.
Biden spoke briefly to reporters after playing a round of golf at Wilmington Country Club in Delaware. Biden was heavily criticized by progressives on Friday after the government announced that it would leave President Trump’s refugee limit at 15,000. It was later announced that the cap would be revised upwards in May.
Biden replied to a question about the refugee cap: “We will increase the number. The problem was that the refugee part was working on the crisis that ended on the border with young people. We couldn’t do two things at the same time. But now we’re going to increase the number. “

Psaki’s statement Friday after Biden gave in to the advancing mob of refugees:
Today’s President’s directive has been the subject of some confusion. Last week he sent Congress his budget for the fiscal year beginning October 2021, which honors his commitment. For the past few weeks he has consulted with his advisors to determine how many refugees could realistically be admitted to the United States by October 1. Given the program we have inherited to accommodate decimated refugees and the burden on the Refugee Resettlement Office, its original target of 62,500 seems unlikely.
As this decision was finalized, the president was urged to take immediate action to reverse Trump policy, which banned refugees from many key regions so that flights from those regions can begin within days. Today’s order did that. We therefore expect the President to set a final, increased refugee limit for the remainder of the fiscal year by May 15.
As of Friday, 23,000 migrant children were in US custody.
