The U.S. media was chagrined to learn that tens of thousands of illegal aliens are streaming across our border because they think Biden told them they could, but they wouldn’t have if Trump had won the 2020 election.
ABC’s Martha Raddatz met some illegals near the U.S.-Mexico border in a Sunday report and some of these faux “asylum seekers” crossing from Mexico told her that they would not have made the trip if Trump was still in the White House.
Raddatz asked the illegal: “Would you have tried to do this when Donald Trump was president?”
“Definitely not. Definitely. We have a chance, you know. The same environment that’s been going on today wasn’t there last year,” the man said. “We used to watch the news and I definitely wouldn’t do this.”
Raddatz added: “So did you come here because Joe Biden was elected president?”
“Basically,” the illegal replied. “The main thing was the violence in my country. And the second thing, I think, was Joe Biden.”

Of course, these illegals are prompted to tell American authorities that they are “refugees” and are “fleeing violence,” but in truth, this man only came here because Biden told him that the doors to the U.S. were wide open.
