Joe Biden 'border crisis', GOP trash president's immigration policies

Published on 30 Oct 2021 / In News & Politics

House Republicans hold a news conference on US President Joe Biden's border policies.

Biden’s coordinator for the southern border acknowledged on Wednesday that the administration sometimes struggled to convey an ultimately promising message to migrants while also urging them not to travel to the US until the country’s immigration system was better equipped.

The remarks from Ambassador Roberta Jacobson, a special assistant to the president who previously served as the U.S. envoy to Mexico, come as the southern border is experiencing a rapid influx of unaccompanied migrant children — provoking criticism from Republicans and some Democrats of the administration’s handling of the situation.
