Border Blather



At some point recently, an idea emerged from the fetid bowels of right-wing media that there was suddenly a “border crisis” and that it’s all Biden’s fault. If you look at the actual data, however, the recent rise in border apprehensions began under Trump, well before Biden took office, and the numbers are not terribly out of line with past cycles. These¬†three handy Reuters charts¬†put everything into perspective (the first panel of this cartoon is based on the “total apprehensions” chart).
