Good. Biden has to prevent Republicans from using border security as an election issue.

WASHINGTON — Facing mounting political pressure over the migrant influx at the U.S. southern border, President Joe Biden on Tuesday signed an executive order that will temporarily shut down asylum requests once the average number of daily encounters tops 2,500 between official ports of entry, according to a senior administration official.

This isn't going to head off border security as an election issue. Far too little too late.

It might be less than what some people desire but how is it too late? Those migrants who got through before the executive order could be deported if they don't meet the criteria for asylum. With less people permitted in, the courts could concentrate on those already here.

This shit isn't fooling anyone though...because everyone knows it is just an election year stunt.

Biden realized that to appeal to moderates, he had to do something regarding immigration.

But Republicans wants border security to be an issue in the election, so they refuse to pass any border security legislation.

Will it though? It feels like the crisis would still be pretty fresh in people's minds by the time November rolls around.

They'll rig the election as usual but they need plausible deniability, can't have the border crisis waging then, or people will Blair mountain.

That's to be expected...

It's a pity that you have to quell the GOP's BS, because calling it out takes too much explaining.

Already, Migrant crossings at U.S.-Mexico border plunge 54% from record highs. But fine. There's an election coming. May as well overkill. So to speak.

The US should select migrants based on talent and needed skills. This would probably automatically result in a diverse country.

Yeah, like Norway.

NBC news ought to stick to installing rocket motors on gasoline tanks so the tanks will explode. Because NBC is one of the news fakers.

The executive order is just window dressing that will not solve anything.

Besides, it’s too late. Folks see all the illegal immigrants gobbling up taxpayer money, taking jobs away, living in their kid’s schools and in airports.

Democrats have a real alternative in Joe Kennedy.

A better alternative would be Josh Shapiro or Andy Beshear. If Biden were smart, he would begin deporting those who do not meet the criteria for asylum.

The one thing nobody ever accuses Biden of being is smart.
