It’s been an ongoing joke for a while now as we learn that Customs and Border Patrol is currently holding some 4,200 unaccompanied migrant children in “jail-like stations unfit to house minors”: When is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez going to head to the border for a photoshoot of her breaking down in tears? Not yet, apparently.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy visited the Mexican border on Monday with a delegation of fellow Republicans and encouraged President Biden to pay a visit, but Biden told reporters Tuesday that he has no plans to visit the border: “Not at the moment,” he said.
For the most popular president ever, we’d expect him to have addressed a joint session of Congress by now to lay out his solution to the border crisis that his administration continually insists is not a crisis.

He still hasn't made plans to leave his bedroom to give a press conference. So why are surprised? pic.twitter.com/9vRQtJEXs5

He still hasn’t left the basement.

It sure feels like it.
Dude can barely leave the White House. Of course he’s not going to the border.

Probably doesn’t know where it is

He needs to go ! I demand he check on his cages

If he does not go there, it clearly is not happening.
— Patrick Cloyd (@PatrickCloyd) March 16, 2021
He's gonna stay as far away from this disaster as possible.

What he's saying is that it isn't a crisis. Except in right wing media…
— Christopher Byrne (@CBinVAN) March 16, 2021
He wouldn’t know how to handle the situation if he actually saw it first hand.

There might be members of the press there, so that's a no-go.

The press is there, but the administration isn’t letting them in to see the kids, due to privacy concerns and COVID-19 protocols — but they’re working really hard on getting the press access.
What a great president! Sits back hiding in a basement while not doing anything at all.

He does make the occasional jaunt to Delaware or Pennsylvania.
Because he’s purposely trying to ruin our border security. What’s the big surprise here?
— NATE (@nastynate121) March 16, 2021
So you can cause the crisis and not even visit the border?!?! He just doesn’t want the press there to see how bad it is
— Stacy Abrams’ Gap Teeth (@BLM_Is_Garbage) March 16, 2021
Problem, what problem? Certainly not a crisis. Oh, if there was, it’s the other guy’s fault anyway.
— rootcause2021 (@rootcause2021) March 16, 2021
Just as with the COVID-19 vaccination program, the previous administration left everything in shambles and he has to start from scratch.
He doesn’t want to visit his own concentration camps?
— LordKrispyKreme (@LordKreme) March 16, 2021
Of course not.
— David Benjamin (@thetoyman1) March 16, 2021
Maybe Pantsuit 1 and Pantsuit 2 will be going instead.
— Pamela McKenzie ? (@PamelaMcKenzie) March 16, 2021
Seems like he doesn't have plans for anything.
— Rob (@HighwayBob) March 16, 2021
He probably called a lid for the week.
— aznewsboy (@aznewsboy) March 16, 2021
He doesn't have the stamina for a trip like that. I am sure those actually running the country are telling him everything is fine.
— Mr. Potatohead Forever ?❤ (@laurahe28) March 16, 2021
He’s probably going to Delaware again instead. His dog probably misses him.
— Save America/Canada? (@roxy__fox) March 16, 2021
Of course not. It’s his man-made disaster. He totally owns it.
— Sonny (@Sunductivity) March 16, 2021
Ben Shapiro has a solution that doesn’t require any travel at all:
He doesn't have to visit. All he has to do is stop encouraging people to cross the border illegally. He can keep watching "Matlock." https://t.co/2apRPW74se

DHS Sec. Mayorkas wants more illegal immigrants to flood into America, just not yet https://t.co/IgoM2Ol8iF
