FLASHBACK: Biden admitted his open border policies could create immigration crisis

"This is the first time you've had to seek asylum in a third country."


In a resurfaced video from August 2020, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden admitted that his plan for the US southern border would reignite a brand new border crisis if they didn't "do it well."

In the interview with Yahoo News, Biden said, "First of all, every executive order this president [Trump] has issued relating to the border, relating to the dealing with the Hispanic community, is going to be pulled back."

When Alfredo Corchado with the Dallas Morning News asked Biden if that would restart a new border crisis, the then-candidate said, "It will, if we don't do it well."

In a follow-up, NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro asked Biden if asylum seekers would be allowed to file their claims inside the US, rather than waiting on the other side of the border. "Yes," Biden replied.

"This is the first time you've had to seek asylum in a third country," he claimed. "It's outrageous."

Data from US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) revealed that there have been over 7.2 million illegal immigrants that entered the United States since President Biden took office in 2021. Since the start of the 2024 fiscal year in October, CBP agents have had nearly one million encounters with illegal immigrants.

This is following a historic 2,475,669 encounters between CBP agents and illegal immigrants in 2023.

In May of 2023, the Biden administration reversed course on its plan to allow asylum seekers to apply for asylum in the US if they did not first apply for it in other countries they traveled through.

In a statement at the time, the Department of Homeland Security said, "The rule presumes those who do not use lawful pathways to enter the United States are ineligible for asylum and allows the United States to remove individuals who do not establish a reasonable fear of persecution or torture in the country of removal. Noncitizens can rebut this presumption based only on exceptionally compelling circumstances."
