Biden Fumbles His Way through Border Crisis Speech

'Eight, right? Am I right? Yeah, Title Eight. Eight-nine... '

(Headline USAPresident Joe Biden stumbled his way through a speech about the border crisis on Thursday, mislabeling Customs and Border Protection and mistakenly referring to Vice President Kamala Harris as the president.

His most obvious blunder was his reference to Harris.

“President Harris led this effort — led this effort to make things better in the countries from which they are leaving,” Biden said of Harris’s alleged work at the border, which has spiraled into deadly chaos. 

He later corrected himself, correctly identifying Harris as the “vice president.”

This is not the first time Biden has mistook Harris as the president. He’s made this error on at least five occasions. In October, Biden called Harris a “great president.” And last January, Biden referred to Harris as “President Harris” during a speech in Georgia.

Another gaffe from Biden came as he discussed the Title 42 policy, a Trump-era immigration law that allowed border officials to quickly deport asylum seekers and illegal immigrants who did not meet asylum requirements. He predicted that Title 42 would be gone before the end of the year, and then fumbled around for which law would replace it.

“Title 42 is going to go away before the end of the year, in terms of the Supreme Court. My prediction. And then we’re going to have to use Title 9,” Biden said before quickly correcting himself to “Title 8.” 

“Eight, right? Am I right? Yeah, Title Eight. Eight-nine,” Biden said, appearing flustered.

At another point, Biden confused “Customs and Border Patrol” with Customs and Border Protection while discussing fentanyl seizures.

Biden also announced several ways his administration plans to “crack down” on the migrant crisis, including immediately turning away Cubans, Haitians and Nicaraguans who cross the border illegally.

Republicans have blasted Biden, arguing that such policies should have been in place years ago.

“President Biden has introduced a new measure that is just a little, tiny Band-Aid on a very big, bleeding wound which is the whole immigration problem,” said Rep.-elect Maria Salazar-Woerner, R-Fla.
