This is my second post about how GOOD the 80 year old, 46th President of the United States of America, Joseph R. Biden IS DOING…..
The media maybe foaming at the mouth over how Donald Trump and the Republicans are throwing stuff at him….
President Biden HAS done a pretty good job getting the country thru a pandemic , keeping American soldier ‘s out of harms way, trying help student debt and other economic problems, dealing with immigration and dealing with a opposition party that wants to drag America BACK to a place where a growing amount America’s have fought to rise up from while trying to use his sons screw-ups against him…..
Republicans are hammering “Joe Biden’s America” as a land of rising violent crime, surging immigration and out of control inflation, but there’s just one problem: the numbers are starting to move in the opposite direction.
The big picture: With 2024 around the corner, the U.S. is making measurable progress in the areas where Biden has been most vulnerable to GOP attacks.
Violent crime surged in U.S. cities during the pandemic and ranked as a top concern for voters in the 2022 midterms.
- Republicans slammed Biden and Democratic leaders for rising crime rates, and many Democrats started embracing a more centrist approach to policing.
- Homicides were down 9% in the first half of this year over the same period last year, according to a study of 37 major cities from the Council on Criminal Justice.
- State of play: Violent crime rates are generally down across the board, thought they’re still higher than 2019 levels.
Meanwhile, illegal border crossings dropped to the lowest level in over two years in June, the first full month under Biden’s new, restrictive asylum rule, which makes it much harder to attain asylum.
- That policy replaced a pandemic-era policy enabling rapid expulsion of migrants, and was sharply criticized by immigration advocates and some Democrats as something out of former President Trump’s playbook.
- For now, though, it seems to have helped stave off an expected summer spike in migrants crossing the southern border…..
