Trump and the Republican Party have been outspoken in recent weeks about Biden’s handling of the increase at the border, blaming his pushback on Trump’s policies as the reason for the increase.
Biden addressed criticism on Thursday, saying he “makes no apologies” for rolling back Trump’s policies, particularly the “Remain in Mexico” policy.
“I don’t apologize for that,” he said. “I do not apologize for ending programs that did not exist before Trump took office and that have an incredibly negative impact on law, international law and human dignity. I don’t apologize for that. “
The comments come as the Biden administration grapples with a surge in migrants at the southern border. The administration has opened about six new facilities in recent months to handle the influx.
Biden told reporters last Sunday that he will visit the border “at some point”.
