A group of migrants crossing the southern border were photographed wearing t-shirts in support of President Biden and holding signs which read: “Biden, please let us in!”
The photographs were reportedly taken at the San Ysidro crossing port in Tijuana as the migrants were requesting asylum in the United States.
The incident was more a coordinated protest than it was a group of Biden fans rushing the border.
The Washington Examiner reports, “migrants stood next to each other and took a knee as part of a demonstration urging the president to keep his campaign promise and increase the amount of immigration into the United States.”
They also sought support from Biden to “ease former President Donald Trump’s law enforcement mechanisms.”
Who is paying for the shirts and delivering them?
This is not an organic movement of people whatsoever. https://t.co/rjuwvHeLDb

Migrants Wearing Biden T-Shirts Hit the Southern Border
The demonstration by migrants wearing Biden t-shirts comes as the President has faced questions about a recent surge in the number of unaccompanied minors arriving at the southern border.
The Wall Street Journal details that “2,200 children have been illegally crossing the border weekly in February” with the pace “picking up.”
That represents a “rise (of) more than 50% in February compared with the previous month.”
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas responded to this very obvious crisis by actually claiming there isn’t a crisis at all.
Reporter: “Do you believe that right now there is a crisis at the border?”

The migrants knocking on the door with their freshly minted Biden t-shirts suggest otherwise.
Odd that they wouldn’t take Mayorkas’ advice when he urged the migrants to wait a bit before trying to cross the border.
“We are not saying, ‘don’t come,’ we are saying, ‘don’t come now,’ because we will be able to deliver a safe and orderly process to them as quickly as possible,” he told asylum seekers.
So THIS is the message from DHS Secretary Mayorkas message to migrants:
“We are not saying, ‘don’t come.’ We are saying ‘don’t come now.'” pic.twitter.com/RobXnbdLr5

Kids in Cages But No Crisis
The rise of unaccompanied minors getting arrested at the border is a crisis in the mind of Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) at least.
AOC recently ripped Biden for utilizing ‘migrant facilities for children’ or rather, the artist formerly known as ‘cages for kids.’
“This is not okay, never has been okay, never will be okay – no matter the administration or party,” AOC tweeted in response to a Washington Post report indicating the Biden administration was re-opening a migrant facility in Texas.
Peter Doocy just asked why Biden is opening up new “cages” for children at the border when he and Kamala referred to it as “human rights abuse” in 2019 when Trump was in office.@PressSec then repeatedly lied, blamed COVID-19, and claimed it is different when Biden does it. pic.twitter.com/IQuGRnwmi6

Former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan blasted Mayorkas for statements claiming DHS is working to “replace the cruelty” of the Trump administration at the border with “an orderly humane and safe immigration process.”
“Don’t tell me this is compassion!” Homan fired back. “Putting your children in the hands of criminal cartels is inhumane, is dangerous, and it’s just bad.”
Perhaps they can get a free t-shirt for their troubles.
