Speaking to reporters at the White House Tuesday evening after debt ceiling talks with congressional leadership, President Joe Biden was asked by reporters about plans to manage the illegal immigration crisis ahead of Title 42 being lifted on Thursday.
In his response, Biden falsely claimed the Mexican government has been helpful and told Americans things will be “chaotic for awhile.”
“I spent close to an hour with — with the Mexican President today. We’re doing all we can,” Biden said. “We’ve gotten overwhelming cooperation from Mexico…It’s going to be chaotic for a while.”
Things are in fact chaotic. On Wednesday, illegal crossings topped 10,000 per day, a number never seen before in the history of the country.
