On Saturday morning, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took to social media and appeared to question whether Joe Biden had revealed plans “to create a crisis” at the border while pursuing the Democratic presidential nomination more than 18 months ago. McCarthy tweeted a short video clip of comments that recirculated online earlier this week from a Democratic debate on September 12, 2019, that showed Biden vowing to encourage migrants to make their way to the United States if elected. “We should believe him when he tells us his plans to create a crisis in advance,” McCarthy wrote in the tweet. During the debate, Democrats had taken turns criticizing the hardline immigration policies of President Donald Trump. Moderator Jorge Ramos asked then-candidate Biden why Latinos should trust him, referencing his previous support for a border wall and the millions of people that had been deported when he had previously served as vice president.
