Obama Smacks Biden Over ‘Open Borders’?

(ReclaimingAmerica.net) In an interview that angered the political right at times and angered many liberals and supporters of President Joe Biden at other times, former President Barack Obama stated, in what many have taken as a smack at Biden, that “We have borders. The idea that we can just have open borders is something that…as a practical matter, is unsustainable.”

Many political pundits believe Obama was sending a shot across Biden’s bow to warn him that if he doesn’t get control of the illegal immigration crisis on the United States’ southern border, he will cost Democrats at the polls in 2022 and 2024.

Here are a handful of the most significant comments Obama made during an interview with Robin Roberts of ABC News about the mess on the border [trascription, editing, and highlights by Reclaiming America editor]:

  • “The question is now: Are we gonna get serious about dealing with this problem in a systemic way, as opposed to these one-offs where we’re constantly reacting to emergencies? And I think that that’s something that every American should wanna put an end to.”
  • “[The border crisis] is a painful reminder that we don’t have this right yet and we’ve got more work to do.”
  • “Immigration is tough. It always has been because, on the one hand, I think we are naturally a people that wants to help others, and we see tragedy and hardship and families that are desperately trying to get here so that their kids are safe, and they’re in some cases fleeing violence or catastrophe.”
  • “At the same time, we’re a nation-state. We have borders. The idea that we can just have open borders is something that…as a practical matter, is unsustainable.”
