Apparently, after promising to take executive action to better secure the U.S.-Mexico border, Joe Biden now feels no sense of urgency to do so.

At least according to a new report from Politico.

Has the President Even Been Paying Attention to Border Chaos?

We still have a border problem, Mr. President.

In February, the Biden administration was supposed to take executive action regarding the border crisis while Congress continued to pursue a spending package that would combine border aid with Ukraine and Israel assistance.

But according to Politico, the White House no longer has any sense of urgency on this front.

“They’re in that pretty classic mode of, nothing is on fire right now,” an immigration policy advocate told Politico on the condition of anonymity.

The story continued:

The administration could still move forward unilaterally in the weeks or months ahead, a White House official said, adding that no specific action that was previously under consideration has been confirmed or ruled out. But the elongated time frame reflects a newfound belief that the president now has some space to deal with the matter.

The president’s team believes congressional Republicans’ rejection of a bipartisan border deal and the impeachment of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas allowed them to neutralize the political backlash Biden was facing and even reap some benefits in the polls. With border crossings down from their December highs, White House officials are keen on giving Biden’s recent border messaging blitz — that Republicans are using the issue for political gain — as much runway as possible.

“[Biden’s] just very confident in that messaging,” said a person familiar with the administration’s thinking, granted anonymity to discuss private conversations. “So I think they’re gonna keep trying to explain that to the public.”

Biden Better Wise Up On The Border

With his poll numbers below Trump’s in important battleground states, it might not be wise for Biden to continue to ignore the border chaos.

More than that, as President, he should at least give a damn about one of the worst crises facing the country.

Yet according to Politico, he just doesn’t.
