(CNSNews.com) – The Biden White House on Wednesday removed one thorny issue that is sure to arise at today’s news conference — the overrun southwest border and Joe Biden’s mixed messages that have encouraged so many would-be asylum seekers.
By putting Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of border security, as he announced on Thursday, Biden can now refer all the difficult questions to her.
« Clever » move, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham on Wednesday night:
Well, first of all, it’s very clever of Biden on the eve of his press conference to turn it over to her, so every question tomorrow about the border, he can say that’s Vice President Harris’s job, you need to talk to her about it. Next question.
In that sense, he manages to duck all responsibility for what is not a crisis, it’s a disaster. And it’s getting worse.
Ninety-two percent of Hispanic-Americans want every person who comes into this country tested for COVID; 90 percent overall of all Americans want them tested for COVID. There is no possibility that this administration will do that.
And I think what will happen is, Vice President Harris who is a very good politician, will presently explain how wonderful things are, how really cool they are. No, we’re not going to let the news media go down. But trust me, it’s ok. And she’ll go on to something else.
I think that her future is not dependent on what happens on the border. Her future is dependent on what happens in the White House with President Biden.
Questions about Biden’s mental acuity have only accelerated since he became president. He does not speak without note cards or teleprompter, so an unscripted news conference presents challenges for the nation’s oldest president.
Host Laura Ingraham noted that the Pentagon has approved a request by the Department of Health and Human Services to house unaccompanied minors at a military base in Lackland, Texas: « Why the heck is our military getting involved in this? » she asked, noting that homeless Americans are living in tents, some of them right here in Washington, D.C.
« If you’re not going to build the wall, you’re going to build a heck of a lot of dormitories, » Gingrich responded.
That’s a very simple equation. They are presently going to drown in people who come north. And every time there’s a TV story about this, more people come north, and they’re not all from Central America. We’re finding people from Africa, from China, from India, from Turkey.
There’s a continuing wave coming to the U.S. This is essentially a peaceful invasion by a huge number of people. By this summer, it may well be over a million people. The Biden administration won’t be able to handle it. This whole thing is just going to fall apart. But what they will do is what they’ve been doing all along — they’ll just lie.
Gingrich said the « peaceful invasion » will hurt the poorest Americans the most, by suppressing their wages. It also will force taxpayers to shell out for the shelter, food, education and health care of illegal immigrants.
« We’re taking on here billions and billions of dollars of additional cost, » he said.
