Joe Biden has gone “totally derelict” on his responsibilities to secure America’s borders, specifically the southern border, and polling shows voters are noticing.

According to a report from Just the News, a Fox News analysis found that 41% of New Hampshire’s Republicans said immigration was their top concern. In comparison, 31% picked the economy under Biden’s policies.

”Exit surveys from CBS News and CNN discovered similar voter sentiment. Potentially driving that sentiment is the deteriorating situation at the frontier under Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, whom Republicans have mulled impeaching over his handling of the matter,” the report explained.

House Homeland Security Committee chief Mark Green, R-Tenn., explained a thorough investigation revealed Mayorkas’ “abuse of power and refusal to comply with the law."

And poillster John McLaughlin told “Just the News, No Noise” show that the Biden administration, on the southern border, is “totally derelict in enforcing the borders.”

When President Trump pursued his first term, he promised to build a border wall to improve security and cut down on illegal immigration, and he was making progress. Then Biden canceled all of Trump's security measures, from wall construction to the remain-in-Mexico policy for asylum seekers, and the result was predictable: Millions of illegals crossed the border since.

The report noted Trump recently cruised to victories in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, whose voters deal with border issues, but from Canada, not Mexico.

McLaughlin said, “President Trump raised it in 2016, and the country embraced it. The powers that be in Washington that survive off exploiting the middle class and allowing illegal immigrants into the country, didn't embrace it. And now, there's more of a backlash.”

Pollster Scott Rasmussen said, in the report, that voters also have linked an invasion of illegal aliens to other problems, like national security and the Fentanyl crisis.

Rasmussen said one of the big reasons is that” the political elites don't see it as a big issue and many Democrats want to propose a solution that would not please most voters.”

Liz Harrington, a Trump campaign spokeswoman, explained, “I think the border is certainly all those issues. But the border in particular is going to be a big one. I think [Trump]'s going to hit on some of the trafficking issues as well, drug trafficking, human trafficking because I mean, people don't remember he was so strong on this issue with executive orders.”
