Democrats never thought Joe Biden would go behind their backs on this issue.
But Biden is facing the heat as the 2024 election approaches.
And Joe Biden threw Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez under the bus in one devastating way.
Throughout the 2020 campaign, Joe Biden repeatedly attacked Donald Trump’s border wall as unnecessary and racist while pledging to not build one foot of new wall.
Biden canceled border wall construction on his first day in office.
But in the wake of an ABC/Washington Post poll showing Trump leading him by 10 points in a 2024 rematch, Biden is panicking.
And with the government reporting a record 260,000 illegal aliens marching across the border in September the Biden administration reversed course and announced a new plan to waive 26 environmental laws to build 20 miles of new border wall in Texas.
The left lost their minds over the fact that Joe Biden admitted Donald Trump was right that walls work.
CNN’S JOHN BERMAN CALLS OUT JOE BIDEN FOR BREAKING HIS PROMISE OF NOT BUILDING THE BORDER WALL AFTER HIS ADMIN’S ANNOUNCEMENT TO BUILD THE WALL IN SOUTH TEXAS:
“BIDEN MADE CLEAR THAT HE WOULD NOT EXPAND THE BORDER WALL IF ELECTED.”

But no one freaked out quite like socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
In 2018, Ocasio-Cortez made her name on a call to defund ICE.
Once in office, Ocasio-Cortez then staged photo ops of her in all-white crying at a fence protecting a border detention facility to supposedly show her anguish over Trump keeping kids in cages.
In reality, the fence was outside a parking lot and Ocasio-Cortez pretended to weep in front of empty pavement.
Ocasio-Cortez reacted angrily on social media to the Biden border wall announcement claiming open borders are a human right.
“The Biden administration was not required to expand construction of the border wall – and they certainly were not required to waive several environmental laws to expedite the building,” Ocasio-Cortez ranted.
“The President needs to take responsibility for this decision and reverse course,” Ocasio-Cortez added.
“A wall does nothing to deter people who are fleeing poverty and violence from coming to the United States.” Ocasio-Cortez concluded. “You do not risk your life or your childrens’ (sic) lives going through the Darién Gap or traversing hundreds of miles of desert if you have any other options. Walls only serve to push migrants into more remote areas, increasing their chances of death. It is a cruel policy.”
Open borders are a political disaster for Democrats.
Donald Trump won the 2016 election harnessing voter backlash to Barack Obama’s open borders agenda.
With polls showing Trump leading Biden, Democrats see history repeating itself.
Biden wants to pretend he always took the border crisis seriously – despite the fact he named Kamala Harris his border czar and issued orders rolling back Trump’s successful immigration policies – to try and avoid a humiliating defeat in 2024.
