Biden Falls Flat

Biden’s failures continue.

Last week’s Summit of Americas hosted in Los Angeles, CA., by the Biden administration has been called a failure by numerous media outlets.

Reporting on the summit took a back seat to news about the Jan. 6 Select committee’s public hearing and the attempted murder of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. But it was clear to anyone the summit was unsuccessful at accomplishing any meaningful change.

President Joe Biden, who repeatedly reminded voters during his 2020 campaign that he visited Latin America 16 times as Vice President, failed to show how those relations would help his administration host a successful event.

For starters, many Latin American — Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Bolivia — leaders boycotted the event, after Biden said he wouldn’t be inviting Cuba due to human rights violations.

The President also indicated Venezuela and Nicaragua were not invited, also citing human rights violations.

His commitment to human rights violations could seem commendable, had the President not supplicated himself to Saudi Arabian leaders, begging them to increase oil production, which they refused.

Without key Latin American countries in attendance, the summit couldn’t address one of the most significant points: immigration, except for some blatantly superficial statements like Vice President Kamala Harris stating her belief that “most people don’t want to leave home.”

She then said they were either doing so because they were “fleeing harm” or unable to “satisfy their basic needs.”

But according to some pundits, the spike in immigration has more to do with the Biden administration’s lenient policies toward immigrants and some immigrants taking advantage of these policies to earn more in the U.S. Rather than “fleeing harm,” as Harris stated.
