New polling data shows that, while President Joe Biden still enjoys overall majority approval, the public’s perception of his immigration policies is quite poor, in part presumably because of his refusal to be honest about what’s happening.

One poll published Tuesday by Marist on behalf of NPR found that only 34 percent approve of Biden’s handling of immigration, whereas a notable 53 percent majority disapprove. However, the poll also found that 52 percent of Americans approve of his “overall” job performance.

Another poll published Sunday by Ipsos on behalf of ABC News found that an even higher 57 percent of Americans disapprove of his handling of immigration. More notably, the poll also discovered that a 54 percent majority of Americans perceive what’s happening along the southern U.S. border as a crisis — not just a “situation.”

Another poll published by YouGov on behalf of Yahoo News found that 62 percent of Americans recognize that there’s a crisis at the border

And one Harvard CAPS-Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Monday found that support for Biden’s immigration dropped by eight percentage points from February to March.

All these polls point to a public that seems increasingly displeased with the Biden administration’s refusal to be honest about the crisis along the border.

But it also denotes the equal displeasure felt toward how the administration has been handling the crisis, though the specific reason for the displeasure seems to vary based on voters’ political views.

An increasing number of “progressive” voices have lashed out at the administration in recent days over its treatment of illegal alien children.

“Biden is … facing incoming fire from the Democratic Party’s progressive left, which is increasingly frustrated with the slow progress so far by the president to deliver what he promised on the 2020 campaign trail – a more humane immigration system than the restrictive policies under former President Donald Trump’s administration,” according to Fox News.

To hear them tell it, every illegal alien child who crosses into the U.S. should just be released and allowed to run wild.

Over on the right, the frustration lies with the Biden administration’s decision to rescind all of the Trump-era policies that had helped secure the border and stop the inflow of illegal aliens.

Though on the other hand, it’s not a surprising move by the administration given that the policies responsible for the current crisis are remnants of the Obama-Biden administration.

It all started with the establishment of the Flores ruling, according to Trump-era immigration official Stephen Miller:

All of this came to an end years later when then-President Donald Trump essentially gutted the Flores ruling and introduced policies that greatly disincentivized illegal immigration into the United States.

The policies worked like a charm, but then, for some inexplicable reason, the American people voted Biden into office, and he promptly reversed everything.

Months into Biden’s administration, a majority now disapprove of his immigration handling. Yet for some inexplicable reason again, he still maintains a high “overall” job performance rating …
