LARRY KUDLOW: Joe Biden is a hopeless open border man

With all the hoopla reporting of the presidential visits to the Texas border, I haven’t seen any specific references to two very important laws passed by Congress and signed by other presidents that will go a long way toward solving Joe Biden’s catastrophic open border policy, and the roughly 10 million illegals who have entered our country.  First, is section 212(f) of the Immigration and…

He’s always attacking them, insulting them, trying to punish them, of course raising their taxes, and, of course, blames Donald Trump and Republicans for them.  Ironically, it’s Joe Biden’s Democratic Party that has become the party of the rich and the elites in Silicon Valley and Wall Street.
