Decker: Biden's Sudden Interest In Immigration Is A "Death-Bed Conversion"

After saying for the better part of his presidency that he does not have the power to curtail immigration issues at the border, President Biden is expected as early as Tuesday to sign an executive order that would cap the number of migrants who enter the country at 2,500 in a given day. The move has many of Biden’s critics howling that the order reeks of little more than election year window dressing. WOR White House correspondent Jon Decker is among those who fall into that camp. He appeared on 710 WOR’s Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning program to offer his analysis on the order.

“I’m a cynic, I’m a journalist, and I’m never shocked by these death-bed conversions that happen in an election year, for anyone who is running for re-election,” Decker told Berman and Riedel. “That’s the reason why you see these policy announcements coming in the last six months before Election Day, no matter who is in office, and you see this action taken by President Biden that will happen today with the signing of this executive order, coming five months before Election Day.”

Meanwhile, Hunter Biden’s gun possession trial kicked off on Monday, and Decker says that saga also might shape the events that follow on the campaign trail. “It’s got to be upsetting, just as a father, you know, to see this. This is unprecedented, to have the son of a sitting President standing trial for criminal violations. Not a good thing, and, you know- look, if Joe Biden goes after Donald Trump, as it relates to his conviction which was announced last week by that 12-person jury, Donald Trump’s gonna return fire and talk about Hunter Biden, just like he did in those debates in 2020.”
