From the moment Joe Biden took office, Conservatives have been screeching about the ‘border crisis.’ Texas senator Ted Cruz even claimed that once Republicans gain control, the President would be impeached over the situation at the border.
Every night on Fox News, complaints are made about Biden’s policy of ‘open borders.’ And that made a recent tweet from Sean Hannity seem very strange. The Fox host posted a story about illegal immigrants being apprehended at the highest rate in 20 years.
The article from Saracarter.com reads, “The 2 million apprehensions in 2021 is more than double the 921,812 apprehensions in 2019, during a surge at the border under then-President Donald Trump’s administration. There were 341,519 Southwest border apprehensions in 2017, Trump’s first year in office.”
In Joe Biden’s first year, illegal immigrant apprehensions highest in 20 years https://t.co/kmI64jUqxj

Hannity is trying to say that so many illegal immigrants are coming in that arrests are up. But the arrests stand in direct contrast to his and his network’s claims that the Biden administration does nothing about the issue. These stats would clearly show that the President is attacking the problem.
