Biden Ignores Border Crisis

( – Republicans lawmakers are accusing President Joe Biden of ignoring what they believe is a crisis along the border of U.S. and Mexico after the chief executive asked for $40 billion in emergency funds for the support of Ukraine.

The president is proposing that around $24 billion of the funds will be used for various efforts related to the U.S.’ aid to Ukraine, while only $2.2 billion will be used to address border concerns. This has obviously angered many Americans, seeing that the leader of the United States is planning on spending twelve times the amount of money on a foreign country, rather than his own.

Border crossings by illegal immigrants are at all-time high, which has long been a point of concern among GOP lawmakers, who have repeatedly criticized the Biden administration’s handling of illegal immigration issues. Some, like Republican stalwarts Colorado Representative Lauren Boebert and Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, have even filed impeachment resolutions against Biden over the issue.

Sources from within U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed to Fox News that the Border Patrol has as many as 19,400 migrants from illegal border crossings in its custody. The crisis has many Republicans concerned enough that several governors from other states – most recently from Virginia, West Virginia and South Carolina – have sent their National Guard troops to the border.

In a rare occurrence, bitter rivals former president Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are in agreement that the U.S. should – at least temporarily – stop sending aid to Ukraine. Trump and DeSantis are both vying for the GOP presidential nomination for next year’s elections, with the former enjoying a very comfortable lead over the latter among Republican voters.

Trump though, is less concerned over issues on the border, and instead wants a thorough investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings, particularly those involving Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son. Speaking to supporters at a recent campaign rally, Trump said that rather than have Biden “dragging” the U.S. into the Ukraine-Russia war, federal agencies should be gathering “every scrap” of evidence on the Bidens’ alleged “corrupt business dealings.”

More and more Republican voters are also becoming more disillusioned by the U.S.’ involvement in the war in Ukraine. Recent research by the Pew Research Center indicates that four in ten Republicans – and Republican-leaning independents – believe that the U.S. is sending too much money to Ukraine.
