After months of refusing to call a spade a spade, President Joe Biden finally admitted that the crisis on the southern border is, in fact, a crisis.

He reportedly used the word earlier today, stating that the refugee cap was linked to the "crisis that ended up on the border with young people".

By refugee cap, President Biden is referring to the Trump administration's 15,000 refugee per year cap. The policy was adopted by the Biden administration, but, according to the Associated Press, after backlash from the far-left, the president recently stated that he will "move to lift ... refugees caps next month".

As CNN reports, the number of migrants trying to enter the southern border this year is estimated to be 2 million. According to The Daily Wire, that's "more than the population of Alaska, Vermont, and Wyoming–combined".

The Biden administration's handling of the southern border has drawn ire from across the political spectrum. For some, he's been too harsh, while for others, he hasn't been nearly strict enough. Republican governors of both Texas and Arizona recently wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post wherein they urged the president to visit the border in-person to see the dire conditions migrants face, something he has yet to do since taking office. They also laid out a number of recommendations to fix the problem.

Whether or not President Biden will listen to the calls for more attention at the border is unclear. It does seem as though he is finally waking up to the reality of the situation, though; calling it a "crisis" is a good first step.
