After President Biden announced Wednesday that he would visit the U.S.-Mexico border during his trip to Mexico next week, conservatives on social media blasted the president for waiting so long to travel.
Since taking office, the Biden administration has set records for illegal immigrant crossings. Last week it was over 600,000 total migrant encounters at the border since October 1st. This set a new record for the months of October, November and December.
Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, whom Biden appointed to lead the border crisis, have been criticized throughout their tenure for not visiting the southern border. Two years later, it looks like Biden is finally coming to visit.
However, Republicans say it is too late.

“Only two years late at the border. Joe Biden is probably the laziest and most clueless President in US history,” tweeted Nile Gardinder, a Telegraph contributor.
Rep. Elect Darrell Issa, R-Cali., tweeted, “Now Biden says his ‘intent’ is to visit the border next week. Too little too late. But at least he would see the crisis he created.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham, RS.C., tweeted, “If the press reports are accurate, I am pleased that President Biden will finally visit our southern border – which has been left entirely to the cartels, smugglers and human traffickers.”

“No other country in the world would accept the surge in illegal immigration that the Biden administration has effectively invited,” wrote Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark.
“Biden’s open-border policy has created a record-breaking southern border crisis — and it’s only getting worse,” the Senate GOP Twitter account wrote.
