Job Creators Network Responds to Biden’s Speech at the Border

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement in response to President Biden’s remarks today at the border:
“After ignoring the severity of the border crisis for years, President Biden is only addressing it now because it has become one of his top political vulnerabilities. JCN’s scientific national poll of small business owners shows nearly one-third of respondents say crime has increased their costs, and the migrants are partly responsible for this destructive crime wave. The border crisis is now so great that it’s become a small business issue. It is impacting every part of society. Biden is being dishonest about needing Congress to fix the border, which he has the tools to secure at the Executive Branch level. Biden should immediately reverse the permissive border policies he’s implemented and reinstate President Trump’s smart policies that kept border crossings to far more manageable levels.”
