Biden’s Border Executive Order Will Not End Well

While seen as a messaging move that won’t survive the courts, the implications are still dangerous

One thing is clear, Democrats are on a messaging run. Just two weeks ago we saw Senate Democrats bring the bipartisan border bill up for a vote knowing they didn’t have Republican votes to get it passed. It was a strategic move that will allow Democrats to go into the next elections pointing out how Republicans are unwilling to do anything about the border.

Similarly, President Joe Biden’s Executive Order will likely serve the same purpose. The order parallels the one former president Donald Trump tried to implement but was struck down by the Supreme Court. Many experts suggest Biden’s order won’t survive the courts and is simply a messaging move. The president will now be able to point out Republican hypocrisy about the border on the campaign trail while also being able to say he tried to do something without them.
