A damming poll has revealed American’s blame President Joe Biden more than former President Donald Trump for the crisis at the US border with Mexico. Recent weeks has seen tens of thousands of migrants from South and Central America arrive at the border as they escape crises in their own countries. Amongst them are an estimated 19,000 unaccompanied kids being forced into overcrowded camps by US border officials. It comes as Kamala Harris has been accused of keeping her “fingerprints” off the crisis and not acting fast enough.
The RT poll shows 44 percent of American’s polled blamed Joe Biden for the crisis on the border with Mexico.
While only 28 percent blamed the previous Trump administration for the crisis.
And 20 percent blamed both equally while 7 percent blamed neither administration for the chaos.
The news comes as clashes about migrant policy are gaining ground in the USA and Washington’s border coordinator will be leaving her position at the end of the month after failing to get a grip of the heartbreaking scenes at the borders.

The crisis has even seen members of Joe Biden’s Democratic party turn against the President and Vice President for their inaction over the border problems.
Furious Democratic congressman Henry Cuellar lambasted Biden and Harris for the chaos.
He said: “If you don’t stop this flow like I told the folks at the White House when I was with them, what’s your endgame? They don’t know.”
The poll comes as it was reported by Associated Press that one of every three encounters with families in March at the border resulted in them being kicked back from getting into the USA.

His comments come as migration to the US from Mexico and northern triangle countries is increasing for the third time in seven years under Republican and Democratic presidents.
A heartbreaking 19,000 children travelling on their own were stopped at the Mexican border in March alone highlighting how serious the crisis has become but Joe Biden has exempted unaccompanied children from pandemic-related expulsions from USA, allowing them to remain in the United States to try and get asylum.
The figure smashed previous highs set during periods of heavy child migration in 2014 and 2019.
But the crisis has deepened in recent weeks as more than 4,000 parents and children, mostly unaccompanied kids, have been squeezed into camps designed for just hundreds of people in Texas as Mexicans and other central and south American citizens flee poverty, violence and hunger in their own countries.
