The chaos at the US Southern border continues after key member of the Biden Administration steps down.
Roberta Jacobson, former US ambassador to Mexico – during the Obama years – and current White House border czar has stepped down after only holding the position for a month.
“Ambassador Roberta Jacobson’s leadership in serving as the Special Assistant to the President and Coordinator for the Southwest Border at the National Security Council has been an invaluable contribution to the Biden-Harris Administration and to the United States,” White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said.
Jacobson feels that the Biden administration policy is “so clearly right for our country.”
What Jacobson left out was that if Biden’s policy is so good then why is she leaving?
Biden has promised to give $4 billion in aid to Central America in an attempt to curb the flood penetrating our border. The President has also put Vice President Harris in charge of “fixing” the southern border situation however she has been missing in action.
“I have asked her, the VP, today, because she is the most qualified person to do it, to lead our efforts with Mexico and the Northern Triangle and the countries that are going to need help in stemming the movement of so many folks, stemming the migration to our southern border,” Biden said during a meeting on immigration last month.
However, Jacobson hinted at why she may be leaving her post after only being their a month.
“I briefed and worked in support of the vice president’s leadership on this issue,” she said. “Nobody could be more delighted to see the vice president take on that role. It didn’t have anything to do with my decision.”
In other words, she briefed the Vice President’s team and got out of dodge so this crap show can’t be blamed on her.
