I have blogged several times in the past few months that I thought the people responsible for Joe Biden’s successful white house campaign had outplayed, outsmarted and outmaneuvered Donald Trump, using a pandemic and Trump’s own brash blustering and bullying style against the now-former president. But is it at least possible that when it comes to the crisis unfolding along our southern border that the shoe may be on the other foot now? In his push to undo all things Donald Trump, including the former presidents border policy, the new presidents promise of a path to citizenship and free health care is certainly at least partially responsible for a surge in the number of adults and children fleeing Central America and Mexico for the United states. That number has grown by at least one hundred thousand since the new president took office. Reports are growing each day about the impact the surge in migrants is having on the federal government and on states along the border. Also increasing are troubling reports of the conditions more than 14 thousand unaccompanied migrants are facing while in U.S. Custody. From more than 15 hundred miles away, it appears the southern border crisis is providing the first significant challenge of the new presidency and one wit appears to has caught the new administration completely by surprise. That’s the way I see it.
