ADAM BRANDON IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF FREEDOMWORKS, WHICH HE LIKENS TO BEING THE CAPTAIN OF A SHIP. BRANDON RECEIVED HIS UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE IN INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS, AS WELL AS A MASTERíS IN POLITICAL MANAGEMENT FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY. HE HAS ALSO EARNED DEGREES IN ECONOMICS AT JAGIELLONIAN UNIVERSITY IN KRAKOW, POLAND, AND IN REAL ESTATE FINANCE AT GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY. PRIOR TO HIS POSITION AS CEO, BRANDON SERVED AS EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF FREEDOMWORKS. HE HAILS FROM CLEVELAND, A FACT WHICH HE NEVER LETS HIS COWORKERS FORGET.

Since Joe Biden assumed office, itís been clear that his administration has no interest in securing the border.
In his first weeks as president, Biden signed executive orders rescinding President Trumpís ďRemain in MexicoĒ and ďsafe third countryĒ border policies, both of which significantly curbed illegal immigration. But Biden initially kept in place one of Trumpís immigration policies: the use of U.S. Code Title 42, which gave immigration authorities the ability to prevent many attempted border crossers from being released into the U.S. due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But now, thatís changing. Earlier this month, the Biden administration announced that it would end the enforcement of Title 42. Despite the fact that we are witnessing a record level of illegal immigration, Biden is claiming that the pandemic has waned to the point that turning away would-be border crossers is no longer necessary. Meanwhile, he still wants Americans to wear masks on planes despite record low cases.

None of this makes any scientific sense. But one thing is clear: Joe Biden wants our border to remain open.

And a new survey conducted by pollster Scott Rasmussen shows that the vast majority of voters know Biden couldnít care less about whatís happening at our southern border.

According to the poll, fewer than three in ten Americans say they support how President Biden is handling the border crisis. But an even more stunning number is that just 26% of respondents say they think Biden is even trying to secure the border. Itís clear that Biden and his media allies arenít fooling anyone with their ridiculous claims that theyíre trying to curb illegal immigration.

Itís no surprise that given the situation at the border, Americans are losing confidence in this administration. A new poll by Quinnipiac University found Bidenís approval rating has cratered to 33%, and that the president has just a 26% approval rating among Hispanic voters.

Itís difficult to understate how much Bidenís ending of Title 42 will encourage illegal immigration. Recent reports indicate immigration officials are bracing for up to 18,000 daily encounters with migrants on the border, which comes out to over 500,000 a month. This would be nearly a tripling of the current level of encounters, which are already breaking records.

Americans should be asking why the Biden administration is more eager to repeal COVID-19 restrictions for illegal immigrants than our own citizens. For months, we have heard about the necessity for mask and vaccine mandates, many of which still remain in place. However, there is no vaccine mandate for migrants at our Southern border, who will now be pouring into the U.S. unlawfully by the hundreds of thousands.

The reason for this isnít complicated. The White House is perfectly happy to see the border open because this is an entirely political consideration, not a scientific one. Biden and his allies in the Democratic Party only care about expanding their own power, not doing what is in the best interest of the American people. Thatís why theyíve decided to scrap the enforcement of Title 42.

Thankfully, voters arenít believing these lies from the left. Joe Bidenís calls for ďunifying the nationĒ and pursuing moderate policy, which he promoted on the campaign trail, are long gone. His administration has shown that not only are they incompetent, but they are doing exactly the opposite of what the American people want.

Nowhere is this more obvious than when we look at Bidenís bungling of the situation on the Southern border. Rather than blaming Trump for everything that goes wrong during his presidency, Biden should look in the mirror and take responsibility for this mess of his own making.

Regardless of whether that happens, we know the truth. The Biden administration wants an open border, which is why they have pursued these ill-conceived policies that clearly incentivize illegal immigration.

But while Biden and the Democrats want an open border, Americans donít. Voters must make that fact known at the polls this November.
