President Biden has furious and repeatedly cursed the border crisis as illegal immigrants continue to flock to the overwhelmed southern border.
In “The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House,” author Chris Whipple describes the anger of the Biden administration as it tries to grasp the crisis raging at the border in 2021 . criticism of his government.
“Meanwhile, illegal immigrants keep coming, and Biden is furious,” the book says. “Seldom had the entourage seen him so angry. From all over the West Wing, the president could be heard swearing and dropping bombs (he was I always apologized.)
A senior adviser told Whipple that the frustration comes from a “lack of solutions.”
Biden called Harris a ‘work in progress’ and was ‘irritated’ by husband’s complaints: book
“It’s like, ‘If you were me and these were your solutions, what would you think? ‘ That’s the weight of the presidency, right?” the adviser said.
In another part of the book, Whipple returns to the crisis at the border, writing:
Whipple also described Biden “with a short fuse” in another issue later this year.

The Biden administration has touted a whole-of-government approach focused on tackling the root causes in Central America. This is a Harris-led effort to work with countries in the Western Hemisphere and restore legal asylum routes that were destroyed during the Trump administration.
But the administration has faced criticism from Republicans for unraveling Trump-era border security policies, including the Immigration Protection Protocol and building the southern border wall. It is also enthusiastic about narrowing its domestic crackdown to favor only criminals and recent border crossers.

The Biden administration has been ordered to end the policy by a federal court. The order was due to end Wednesday, but was temporarily blocked by the U.S. Supreme Court in response to a last-minute lawsuit from the Republican-led coalition of states.
The administration has asked Congress for more funding, but acknowledges that there will likely be an even bigger surge if the order ends. While it says it is working on it, it is calling on Congress to overhaul what it describes as a broken immigration system.
