On Sunday, Democrat President Joe Biden visited the U.S.-Mexico border for the first time since becoming president two years ago. 

During his visit, Biden toured the incomplete border wall – which he ended the construction of in the beginning of his presidency – and admitted to reporters that border officials needed more resources. 

“Mr. President, what have you learned at the border today?” a reporter asked Biden. 

“They need a lot of resources,” Biden admitted, then claimed, “we’re going to get [those resources] for them.”

The visit occurred two years after Biden entered office in January 2021. Since then, illegal immigration levels repeatedly set new record highs with border officials encountering a then-record of 1,734,686 migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border in fiscal year 2021 and a new record of 2,378,944 migrants in fiscal year 2022.

The surge in illegal immigration came as no surprise since Biden repeatedly encouraged migrants to come to the United States throughout his 2020 presidential campaign, going as far as assuring migrants that the United States would be their “safe haven” during his DNC presidential nominee acceptance speech.

After entering office, Biden worked hard to follow through with that promise. On his first day in office, he issued a proclamation ending construction of the border wall.
