Fox News host Martha MacCallum blasted U.S. National Security Council spokesman John Kirby during an interview this week for saying President Joe Biden is taking the border crisis seriously.

The Wednesday interview happened as millions of illegal aliens have unlawfully entered the U.S. southern border under Biden’s administration, which has resulted in states starting to act on their own.

MacCallum noted that the illegal immigration issue had been the top concern for voters in Iowa and New Hampshire.

When Kirby said that Biden has tried to act with a sense of urgency to fix the crisis, MacCallum shot back: “He’s been president for three years.”

“This is not just the same old immigration issue we’ve had going on for a decade as he said the other day,” she continued. “These are record numbers all the time. And people in Iowa and New Hampshire are the ones that are expressing concerns about it. This isn’t Arizona and Texas. This is Iowa and New Hampshire. I don’t think that people sense that there’s an urgency to address this.”

Kirby said that Biden was “limited” in what actions he could take, saying that Congress was moving forward with a plan to address the issue.

“They’re not really moving along well,” MacCallum fired back. “You say he’s been concerned about it for three years, but that’s failing, obviously. When you have record numbers of people coming in, that means the policy’s failing. So, why not change gears and try to do something that works?”

MacCallum continued to press Kirby: “John, do we have a border? Do we have a southern border? Do we have a southern border?”


“Yes, ma’am,” he responded. “Of course we do.”

“Then how come people can flow across it every single day?” she pressed. “Hundreds of thousands of people? Three hundred thousand people in December.”
