Now that Biden is back in his safe space, the border will return to the same old same old. Biden’s Administration rejected Republican Rep. Tony Gonzales’s request to join the president’s entourage on Sunday as Biden met with local and Border Patrol officials in El Paso over the immigration crisis. On this same topic, Colorado Democratic Gov. Jared Polis announced he would stop busing migrants to Chicago and New York City. (Daily Caller, Legal Insurrection, Daily Wire, RedState)
