Despite being in Arizona Tuesday, President Biden did not visit the border. In fact, Biden downplayed the situation at the border saying "there are more important things."
"Why go to a border state and not visit the border?" Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy questioned.
"Because there are more important things going on," Biden answered. "They’re going to invest billions of dollars in a new enterprise."

Last month White House press secretary referred to trips to the border as "political stunts."
Sure, when you take the approach as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did, it's absolutely a political stunt.
This is despite record-setting illegal immigration happening during the Biden administration, per a Fox News report:
The U.S. has seen record levels of illegal immigration throughout the Biden administration. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported 230,000 border encounters in October alone, an all-time monthly record that broke the previous record set in September.
September data revealed that fiscal year 2022 ended with 2,378,944 migrant encounters, the highest ever recorded in a fiscal year. That figure does not include the 599,000 known "gotaways" that CBP sources told Fox News evaded capture over the same period.
The Democrats are just taking the approach that if they ignore this situation it will go away.
