A poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research shows the majority of Americans disapprove of President Biden’s handling of the ongoing crisis on the border.
According to the poll, 55 percent of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of border security, compared with 44 percent who are in favor.
Another 56 percent disapprove of his approach to immigration in general, while only 42 percent agree.
A statement accompanying the poll indicated that a majority of Americans would like the Biden government to take the border crisis more seriously.
“The Biden government is grappling with a growing number of migrants, especially children who arrive at the US-Mexico border without their parents,” writes AP-NORC.
“Three-quarters of Americans have read or heard of the large numbers of children arrested on the southern border, and a majority want the government to prioritize the issue,” it said.

Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s DHS secretary, recently admitted that the United States is well on its way to seeing the most migrants at the border “in the last 20 years”.
Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) said in an interview with Fox & Friends that Biden “just doesn’t care” how many migrants live on the border.
“Sometimes when people pretend they don’t care, it’s not an act. I think President Biden just doesn’t care, ”said Kennedy. “I think he plans to take between 2 and 3 million illegal immigrants into our country this year. We had evidence of this in his campaign. “

Even MEP Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez described the current conditions at the border as “terrible” and “inhuman”.
“As we have seen, there are arrivals and undocumented children – more likely unaccompanied children who have come to the border, and this has resulted in completely inhuman and unacceptable, horrific conditions for children in CBP custody,” she said during a virtual Town hall.
“It’s unacceptable and it’s awful.”

And while AOC places most of the blame for the current border crisis at the feet of former President Donald Trump, most Americans disagree.
According to a new Hill-HarrisX poll, 44 percent of registered voters say Biden is responsible for the current humanitarian crisis on the border, while only 28 percent said it was Trump’s fault.

A TIPP poll conducted for the National Sheriffs’ Association last week shows that Americans are also in favor of stricter measures on the border.
“With a surge in Central American migrants coming to the US, Americans believe that local law enforcement should give priority to enforcing immigration laws,” said Sheriff Mark Daniels.
Daniels adds that the poll shows that “Americans want the government to give pandemic-affected citizens priority over migrants who have crossed the line in terms of economic aid.”
The news that two Yemeni men on the FBI terror watch list were arrested for illegally entering California is an example of other dangers related to Biden’s mistreatment of the border crisis.
