Biden Scoffs at Suggestion to Visit Border: ‘There Are More Important Things’ To Do

President Biden could barely hide his disdain over a suggestion that he visit the southern border and observe the crisis his administration has created, deriding the idea because “there are more important things.”

Biden made the remark as he was set to board Marine One on Tuesday. He is scheduled to visit a new computer chip plant in Arizona.

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy openly wondered why he couldn’t multitask.

“Why go to a border state and not visit the border?” he asked.

“Because there are more important things going on,” Biden shot back. “They’re going to invest billions of dollars in a new enterprise.”

Biden: There Are More Important Things Than Our Open Border

If you needed any further confirmation that President Biden does not, nor will he ever, care about illegal immigrants pouring into the country, then there it is.

When he’s not ridiculing the idea of visiting the border, he’s flat-out lying about it.

Last week, the White House falsely claimed Biden has been to the border.

Doocy was again involved – since apparently no other “reporters” bother asking meaningful questions – asking White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre if the President had any designs on taking up House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s invite to join him and survey the crisis.

“He’s been there. He’s been to the border. And since he took office…,” Jean-Pierre responded.

Doocy asked, “When did he go to the border?” 

Jean-Pierre avoided answering because there was no answer to give. The closest Biden has gotten to the border was when he drove past it near El Paso, Texas, on the campaign trail in 2008.

Biden Thinks Visiting the Border is a Political Stunt

Jean-Pierre decried any attempts to convince Biden to visit the border, because it would be a ‘political stunt.’

“They’re doing political stunts. That’s what they want to do. That’s how they want to take care of the situation,” she said.

Which is odd coming from the mouthpiece of a man who, as candidate Joe Biden, met with the family of Jacob Blake, and who hosted the family of George Floyd in the White House.

Those weren’t political stunts … apparently.

Vice President Kamala Harris has also dismissed the idea of visiting the border despite being Biden’s immigration ‘czar.’ And she also got caught in a lie.

“We’ve been to the border. So this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border,” she claimed in a 2021 interview with NBC host Lester Holt.

Holt pushed back, “YOU haven’t been to the border.”

A defensive Vice President snapped, “And I haven’t been to Europe. And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making.”

The entire administration is in lockstep with their messaging – The border isn’t important.

Fentanyl pouring into the country isn’t important. Individuals on the terror watchlist trying to get into the country are also not important. American jobs lost to illegal immigrants, not important.

  • Over 1 million “gotaways” have escaped into the United States since President Biden took office. Experts say that number likely includes terrorists, cartel members, and other criminals.
  • A record number of migrants have died.
  • The highest number of border patrol agents in a decade have taken their own lives.
  • The leading cause of death for Americans age 18 to 45 is fentanyl overdoses.

But none of those lives are more important than a computer chip plant.

  • Biden's "more important things" are supplying more dangerous drugs from the Cartels, borrowing more money from China, making sure the next WH is also occupied by another Commie puppet, helping his son make more billions from traitorous deals (which Joe shares), and trying to become the first American Dictator. Benedict Arnold had nothing on Joe Biden

  • Condoning human trafficking, drug cartel profit, unvetted with virus and disease, sex slavery and extortion is Joe's way of putting this nation a in a security risk and creating another means for terrorism to grow a large foothold...but let not your heart be troubled, he is an Un proclaimed Sell Out and another benedict Arnold......

  • Lie Cheat and steal the American way.Illegals are way more important than any American and the Ukraine and the Taliban real American heroes Biden would never do any thing with out some kind of Kickback POS FJB

  • POTUS's utter disdain for and complicity in the invasion at the southern border, the harmful effects of the illegal hordes on his supposed fellow citizens, the complete lack of a concerted national response to the flow of illegal drugs and how they've killed tens of thousands, is absolutely criminal. He should be thrown into solitary confinement for the rest of his days on this earth.
