Conservatives are sounding off after President Joe Biden said that he plans to visit the southern border as early as next week.
Fox News co-host Judge Jeanine Pirro argues Biden will gaslight Americans about the border, showing an orderly view for media while the problem is much worse.

"Since taking office, the Biden administration has seen record illegal immigrant crossings. As of last week, there were over 600,000 total migrant encounters at the border since Oct. 1. This set a new record for the months of October, November, and December," Fox News reported.
"Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, who Biden appointed to lead on the border crisis, have been criticized throughout their time in office, for not visiting the southern border. Two years later, it appears Biden is finally going to visit," it added.

Despite Biden's efforts to claim the border is secure, it won't change that a Border Patrol agent was shot near the border recently.
"Border Patrol agents made a vehicle stop. In the course of the vehicle stop a suspect shot a Border Patrol agent in the chest and I believe also in the arm," National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said, adding that the bullet didn't penetrate the agent's protective vest.
"The vehicle then fled and a pursuit took place where it's my understanding that the vehicle then crashed and rolled with the suspect fleeing," Judd continued.
The high number of illegal crossings includes increasing concerns of criminals entering the nation, along with drugs and concerns with human smuggling.
The surge in migrant numbers is also leading to large numbers of gotaways, an unknown number of migrants entering the nation without being apprehended or accurately recorded.
The president's upcoming appearance may be set to show law and order are in place, but the reality is far different when it comes to the border.
