President Joe Biden’s first actions in office are leaving many to wonder just what he’s doing to advance the interests of the average American.
From killing jobs to opening up the border, a number of critics are already labeling Biden’s agenda “America Last” for its focus on peripheral concerns.
Apparent “America Last” agenda
Since taking office last Wednesday, Biden has enacted more than 30 executive orders, with a heavy focus on “woke” issues like transgender inclusion and relaxing immigration enforcement.
Amidst a pandemic and economic recession, many have questioned the logic of his decisions, such as pausing deportations for 100 days and moving to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline, which killed thousands of jobs instantly, prompting backlash from labor unions that supported Biden’s campaign.
Columnist Miranda Devine told “Watters World” that Biden is stiffing “normal Americans who are not protected by great wealth or by protected jobs” while exposing them to the coronavirus with his immigration actions.
Fox News host Judge Jeannine Pirro was even harsher in her assessment of Biden’s “America Last” agenda,” which departs from former President Donald Trump’s emphasis on border security and prioritizing jobs for Americans.
“America not only has to deal with a pandemic, and huge unemployment, we’ll have to deal with immigration and immigrants competing for jobs, with 10 million unemployed American workers,” Pirro said.
This comes as former staffers of Trump’s have warned that Biden is encouraging a new immigration crisis, with reports of a new migrant “caravan” heading to the southern border.
In the meantime, many say that Biden’s far-left policies hardly demonstrate a desire for “unity” with conservatives, despite his repeated promises to bring the country together.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson reported that the Biden administration already issued an order to “release them all,” referring to immigrants in ICE detention.
In his assessment of Biden’s first day, Carlson questioned whether Biden’s immigration plans are not being advanced as “punishment” for America’s imagined sins.
“How for example does amnesty and the waves of mass illegal immigration that inevitably will follow make this a better, more united country?” Carlson asked. “You’re not supposed to ask that question, but it’s totally fair. The rest of us live here, we have a right to know.”
