WASHINGTON, DC- Remember when liberals railed against former President Trump for separating families at the border? Yeah, good times. Now that Biden is doing the same thing that Barack Obama did as well when he was the occupant of the Oval Office? Silence.
You must recall the handwringing when families were separated during the Trump administration. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, all dressed in white, on her knees, writhing in pain crying at the very thought of children being separated from their parents., completely distraught.
Searched Grabien’s PhotoBank and found these alternate angle pics of @AOC where her sad-face pics were shot. Apparently she was crying about the lack of migrant children for her photo op. pic.twitter.com/8FMB8OQR6K

So AOC was really just trying to get some stock border crisis images for Getty. The “crying at the border” pics were just crying at cars behind a fence 🤷🏼♀️ pic.twitter.com/AHGd7B7Jx2

Those images were of course, staged.
Remember Trump was accused of draconian, dictatorial policies while when Biden does the exact same thing, the silence is deafening.
This past week, Kamala Harris went through the border…or more accurately over the border to jet her way down to Guatemala and then back up to Mexico.
During an interview, the president of Guatemala said the current surge…or is it scourge of illegal migrants flooding the border is due to promises made by Biden, Harris, etc., that families would be reunited inside the United States.

Joe Biden is responsible for this border crisis.
— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) June 7, 2021
That however does not seem to be the case. According to the New York Post, thousands of migrant children are still waiting to be reunited with their families.
“Only seven migrant kids separated from their families by the Trump Administration’s ‘zero tolerance program’ have been reunited with their relatives since President Joe Biden took office, the task force in charge of reunifications said.
“The task force released a 22-page progress report Tuesday during Vice President Kamala Harris’s trip to Central America that shows 2,127 kids are still waiting to be reunited with their families.
“The progress report was submitted to Biden last week.
“In a call with reporters, a senior DHS official said the Trump administration [of course] was to blame for the sluggish process because there’s ‘numerous errors and misinformation’ in data kept by the former POTUS’S staff, NBC News reported.
‘No comprehensive system was in place to separate parents and their migrant children,’ the official said on the call.”
Town Hall notes the situation is likely going to get worse due to Biden’s border crisis. The outlet reports, as Law Enforcement Today also reported recently that over 180,000 illegals were detained in the month of May and that is only the ones we are aware of.
The total number of detentions since January 20, 2021, when Biden took office is over 1 million. Remember those “cages” that Trump was accused of putting kids into? They are still here under Biden in a big way. Overrun camps representing concentration camps during World War II are back, and families are still being separated.
Despite the Biden administration trying to deflect blame for their failures onto the Trump administration while failing to give credit to that same administration for the successes of, for example the coronavirus vaccination program, the current border crisis is squarely on their shoulders.
Biden put Harris in charge of dealing with the border. Instead of dealing with what is going on today in real time, Harris has decided that she is going to deal with the so-called “root causes,” which if it were real would be a long-term solution, not the short-term solution that is desperately needed.
Our world is interconnected and interdependent—and we know that what happens abroad impacts security and prosperity at home in the United States. That is why I am in Guatemala today.

Harris was asked when she plans on going to the border and claimed, “we have been to the border.” When pressed further and reminded that she herself hadn’t been to the border by NBC News reporter Lester Holt, she said she “hasn’t been to Europe either.”
Deflect, deflect, deflect 😁😁 but anyways, there’s still kids in cages at the border and the increase of it is the Biden administration’s fault because of their dangerous rhetoric during the campaign trail. https://t.co/zsjwwP02ti

Classic case of deflection by a woman who is clearly in way over her head. Europe isn’t the problem. Central America and Mexico are.
All of this of course provides a treasure trove of issues with which Republicans can attack Democrats next year, if they decide for once to stop playing nice with Democrat and beat them at their own game. That doesn’t include the economy, which is starting to feel significant effects from inflation, nor does it include Democrats trying to drive a racial wedge through their neo-Marxist Critical Race Theory brainwashing.
Republicans have a golden opportunity next year if they don’t blow it. The border fiasco is just one nail they can use in the Democrat’s coffin.

WASHINGTON, D.C.- On Tuesday, June 8th, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) released a video highlighting that Vice President Kamala Harris (D) has yet to visit the U.S.-Mexico southern border since being told by President Joe Biden (D) that it was to be her responsibility to oversee the border crisis.

— Rep. Lauren Boebert (@RepBoebert) June 8, 2021
According to reports, Boebert was recently in McAllen, Texas with a delegation when she created the video depicting the Colorado congresswoman walking along the border carrying a cardboard cutout of Harris in lieu of the vice president’s real life visit.
In an interview that aired on the morning of June 8th on NBC’s Today Show, Harris was pressed about why she has yet to visit the U.S.-Mexico border. Lawmakers from both parties have been urging her to go since being tapped as the border czar by Biden. Harris responded by saying:
“And I haven’t been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making. I’m not discounting the importance of the border.”
HARRIS: At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So this whole, this whole, this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.
HOLT: You haven’t been to the border…
HARRIS: And I haven’t been to Europe. https://t.co/HILvFwu4AX
— Monica Alba (@albamonica) June 8, 2021
Harris just wrapped up a three-day visit to Guatemala and Mexico where she allegedly sought to “focus on the root causes” of migration from Central America to the United States. In her response above, she again claimed that she is focused on solving the border problem “at its source.”
In Boebert’s video, she states:
“You can’t just hear about what’s happening. You have to come down here to see for yourself to really understand the devastating reality at our southern border. So, I brought Kamala down to see exactly what this regime is responsible for with their manmade crisis.”
Boebert’s video is one of numerous instances of Republicans as well as some Democrats, calling on the vice president to make a trip to the southern border to witness the realities of the crisis firsthand.
Kamala Harris is way out of her depth, does she honestly think that anyone will listen to what she has 2 say after her invisible behaviour on the Border Crisis which her admin destroyed. #KamalaHarris is a puppet for the deep state, btw where’s AOC on thishttps://t.co/9b56z3xzz3
— JENNIE MATTHIAS (@REDTREASURE) June 9, 2021
Instead, Harris’s first trip as Biden’s “border point person” was a two-day trip to Guatemala and Mexico, two nations where illegal immigrants often originate. Asked by a reported in Guatemala about the questions and criticisms Harris has faced over the ongoing calls for her to visit the U.S. border, she said:
“I came here to be here on the ground to speak with the leader of this nation around what we can do in a way that is significant, is tangible, and has real results and I will continue to be focused on that kind of work as opposed to grand gestures.”
For everyday Americans, the surge at our southern border is a crisis.
For Biden and Kamala, it’s mission accomplished. pic.twitter.com/ze9w6udw4y
— Rep. Lauren Boebert (@RepBoebert) June 9, 2021
In her video, Boebert lists statistics that sum up what is happening at the southern border. She said:
“Illegal aliens crossing the border, that’s up. Sex offenders crossing the border, that’s up. Drug trafficking, gun smuggling, human smuggling, that’s up.”
On Tuesday, June 8th, during a White House briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that she “expects” Harris will travel to the border “at some point,” but said the vice president is currently focused on addressing root causes of migration in Central American. Psaki said:
“What her focus as been, what the assignment is specifically, is to work with leaders in the Northern triangle. She’s on a trip doing exactly that, exactly what the President asked her to do.”
Yet, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported that their agency is encountered more than 101,000 illegal immigrants in February, more than 173,000 in March, and more than 178,000 in April.
Those monthly totals represent a 175 percent increase, a 403 percent increase, and a 944 percent increase over last year’s totals. In her video, Boebert said:
“You know what’s not up at the southern border? Respect for law and order, funding for our Border Patrol and where is the media to cover this crisis? More than 70 days ago, Biden named cackling Kamala as the border czar, but she hasn’t done a single thing to protect the American people.”
At the end of the video, Boebert propped up the cardboard cut out of Harris and said:
“Now, Kamala, I want you to stand here and look at what you’ve done.”
This video is the latest in a string of attention-grabbing moves from the outspoken congresswoman. In April, Boebert wrapped herself with a foil blanket during Biden’s joint address speech to illustrate conditions for unaccompanied illegal immigrant children in federal border facilities.
Let me tell you why I WILL carry my Glock to Congress.
Government does NOT get to tell me or my constituents how we are allowed to keep our families safe.

In January, upon her arrival to Congress, Boebert released a video walking around Capitol Hill with the visual of a concealed gun to advocate for Second Amendment rights.
Rep. Boebert’s trolls critics by displaying guns in background of Zoom call: ‘These are ready for use’
February 20th, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C.– Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has responded to critics who mocked her for her Zoom conference call that had guns in the background.
— NowThis (@nowthisnews) February 19, 2021
According to reports, Boebert virtually appeared at a House Natural Resources Committee Zoom meeting on Thursday, February 18th, where she was seen sitting in front of a display of guns on a bookshelf.
Boebert was in her own home during the virtual meeting, but that still did not stop critics from mocking the freshman lawmaker. Her critics claim that the guns were in an “unsafe” storage, but she fought back stating, “These are ready for use.”
During the virtual meeting, Boebert fired back at the House Natural Resources Committee rule prohibiting firearms in its hearing room. During the Zoom call, she said:
“This rule is absurd and discriminative. This is a blatant violation of our constitutional rights.”

— FOX 5 DC (@fox5dc) February 20, 2021
She proceeded to request the committee issue her a “personal security detail” if they insisted on upholding the rule. She said:
“I would like to request at this time personal security detail that the chairman pays for himself, for every time I’m stepping into the committee room. If this is passed, the chairman is trying to take responsibility for my personal safety while stripping away my Second Amendment rights.”
The House Natural Resources Committee upheld the ban. The outlet reported:
“Per a 1967 regulation, Congress members are allowed to keep guns in their offices and transport them around the Capitol complex. However, there are some executions, including on the House and Senate floors.”
The statement added:
“In recent weeks, Republican lawmakers, including Boebert, have touted (sic) the regulation and opposed what they perceive as restrictions to it.”
A Democratic spokesperson said:
“As far as we’re concerned, we’re not doing anything new here. We’re restating existing policy.”

Some of Boebert’s critics did not censor their words. Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA) mocked Boebert over her “gun fetish.” During the hearing, he said:
“Here’s the reality, if someone wants to have a shrine to their gun fetish as a Zoom backdrop in their private life, they can do it. But, this is our hearing room and at some point, we will get past the COVID epidemic and we’ll all start showing up in person.”
“And our safety and our ability to conduct business civilly without feeling threatened is a relevant consideration, unfortunately.”
Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO), a U.S. veteran, also blasted Boebert for the gun display. He posted a picture of a gun safe on Twitter and wrote:
“Let’s call this what it is, a political stunt. I never stacked guns on a bookshelf when at war, let alone on a Zoom in my living room. Unless you’re on patrol in Afghanistan, this is the right way to store a gun.”
On Twitter, Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) wrote:
“I always thought my dirty dishes piled up and accumulating bacteria were the most dangerous thing in a Zoom background.”
Boebert fired back at a commenter who panned her for “unsafe gun storage.” She wrote:
“Who says this is storage? These are ready for use.”

Boebert, a gun-rights advocate, gained recent national attention when she suggested that she would carry a Glock with her around Washington, D.C. and to Congress. She represents Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District and ran her 2020 campaign on a pro-gun platform.
She reportedly owns a restaurant in the state called Shooters Grille and the staff are encouraged to openly carry firearms.
