U.S. President Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Sunday discussed migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border where the number of unaccompanied children has increased in the past few months.
Asked by a reporter whether he was thinking of going to the border, the President responded, “At some point, I will. Yes.”
President Biden spoke with reporters at the White House South Lawn after his Marine One Arrival following a weekend at Camp David in Maryland.
The President was asked whether he wanted to see “firsthand what is going on in those facilities”, “I know what’s going on in those facilities,” he responded, referring to facilities where migrants are housed.
On why his message to the migrants, telling them to stay home and not to come to the United States now hasn’t resonated yet, and what more could be done, President Biden responded, “A lot more. We’re in the process of doing it now, including making sure that we reestablish what existed before, which was they can stay in place and make their case from their home country.”
