Biden urged Congress to pass the $20.2 billion bipartisan border bill. The legislation would reform the asylum system and give border patrol officers the resources they need.  The legislation is key in getting 1,500 more border agents to stop fentanyl.  4,300 more asylum officers to deal with the backlog of cases.  The law permits the Executive Branch to use emergency authority to shut the border when it becomes overwhelmed.

Biden spoke directly to Trump:

“Instead of playing politics with the issue, instead of telling members of Congress to block this legislation, join me, or I’ll join you, in telling the Congress to pass this bipartisan border security bill. We can do it together…. Instead of playing politics with the issue, why don’t we just get together and get it done. Let’s remember who the heck we work for. We work for the American people, not the Democratic Party or the Republican Party. We work for the American people.”

Jack Posobiec opened the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) with the words:

“Welcome to the end of democracy. We are here to overthrow it completely. We didn’t get all the way there on January 6, but we will endeavor to get rid of it and replace it with this right here. After we burn that swamp to the ground, we will establish the new American republic on its ashes, and our first order of business will be righteous retribution for those who betrayed America.”
