Pelosi stands by Biden despite new record-breaking migrant crossing numbers
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still backs President Biden‘s handling of the southern border despite new data out showing a record-breaking number of unaccompanied minors making the dangerous trek to the United States, her spokesman told Fox News Thursday.
Pelosi said on March 19 that Biden has the border situation “under control” and expressed confidence with Biden’s “values-based [and] humanitarian” approach.
And just on Wednesday, Pelosi said: “we’re on a good path at the border under the leadership of Joe Biden.”
On Thursday, however, the Biden administration revealed jaw-dropping numbers showing just how stressed the immigration system at the southern border has become this year.
U.S. border officials picked up nearly 19,000 children traveling across the southern border alone in March, the largest monthly number ever recorded.
Overall, the tally for all migrants encountered in March of all ages was 172,000, a 100% percent increase from the already high numbers in February — Biden’s first full month in office.
