What the heck is going on with Jill Biden and her supposed official “role” on the border?
Do you remember that?
We were told that Jill Biden was going to be the leader of a White House task force whose goal it was to reunite immigrant families. She went on a virtual chat with young Latinos and literally said that she would be working on “unifying families.”
And as you can imagine, when the word hit, the media was gushing all over her. As a matter of fact, HuffPo published an article titled “Jill Biden To Lead Task Force To Reunite Separated Immigrant Families.” And if that wasn’t enough, Forbes jumped in and published an article that read, “Jill Biden Expected To Help Reunite Separated Migrant Families.”
But now, the office of the First Lady is saying that Jill will have no formal role in any efforts at the border.
Could it also be that Jill Biden is staying as far away as she can from her husband’s disaster at the border?
Politico just published an article with comments from the first lady’s office saying she has no role in the effort and mysteriously claiming she never did have a role in the task force. Advocates working with Biden believe she backed away from the task force leadership because of criticism of her husband’s immigration policy:
Some of the advocates and lawyers for migrant families are concerned that Jill Biden backed away from the issue because the administration is facing a torrent of criticism from both the right and the left on the border problems. It sure looks like Biden’s office is lying about this:
“I’m a little worried it’s deprioritized or viewed as politically sensitive,” said one advocate involved in the effort.
The first lady’s office maintains she never had an official role on the issue. Her spokesperson Michael LaRosa emphasized that “The Department of Homeland Security is leading the work of the task force. As the task force is an interagency task force, with members comprised of representatives from the relevant federal government agencies, the First Lady does not have any formal role.”
It sounds like Jill is backing away from a mess that her husband made.
He doesn’t know what he’s doing and neither does she.
It’s official, Jill is now as disassociated with the crisis at the border as her useless puppet-husband is.
