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.

These three handy Reuters charts put everything into perspective (the first panel of this cartoon is based on the “total apprehensions” chart).
