Democrat President Joe Biden has claimed that he doesn’t have enough taxpayer money to protect America’s borders, despite sending hundreds of billions in federal funding to fuel endless foreign wars.
The comments come as thousands of fighting-age foreign nationals continue to breach America’s frontier every day to enter the country illegally.
Biden was slammed by critics for his comments about doing “something” at America’s Southern Border.
The border is facing unprecedented levels of illegal immigrant crossings.
Customs and Border Protection revealed that migrant encounters hit a staggering 300,000 incidents in December 2023.
It has now reached a level thought unimaginable just years ago.
December recorded the highest total for a single month ever recorded and also marked the first time migrant encounters have exceeded 300,000.
While walking from Marine One into the White House Tuesday night, Biden was asked by a reporter about the mounting border crisis.
The president was asked what he plans to do about the Southern Border and the record number of illegal aliens entering the country.
“Well, we gotta do something,” Biden answered.
He then suggests that Republicans are refusing to release tax dollars to tackle the issue.
“They [Republicans] ought to give me the money I need to protect the border,” Biden claimed.

Some Biden critics rejected the idea that a lack of funding is the reason why the border is so overrun.
“Oh yeah, more money,” journalist Miranda Devine wrote.
“But not to ‘protect the border’.
“It’s to pay for more lawyers to lie for the illegal migrants posing as asylum seekers.
“It’s to pay for more NGOs to continue the cartel’s human trafficking work around the country.
“It’s to pay for more ‘humanitarian’ aid at the border, and more money wasted on ‘root cause’ boondoggles.
“Anything but secure the border.
“It doesn’t take more money to do that,” she noted.
“Just the political will.
“He can close it tomorrow if he wants.
“He has enough new Biden voters now anyway,” she said, referring to the theory that Democrats want to flood the country with migrants to import future Democrat voters.
Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) shared a similar theory, arguing, “What he’s asking for is money for more agents to process illegals and bring them into the country, not protect the border.”
“Build the wall and enforce the law!” the Republican Party’s official account wrote on X.
“Yes, Biden’s ‘gotta do something’—or Congress won’t fund the government,” Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) wrote.
“This is what President Biden does instead of actual press conferences,” retired Army colonel James Hutton wrote.
