President Biden’s surprise decision to limit (on paper, anyway) the number of migrants seeking asylum on the southern border led the PBS NewsHour on Tuesday, in a story and a following interview that alternately covered for President Biden (he’s no immigrant-hating Trump!) and chided Biden from the pro-open-border left (though there is doubt among conservatives as to how tough Biden’s executive order truly is).

Anchor Geoff Bennett quickly attempted to inoculate the Democratic president, under pressure just five months before Election Day, by running Biden’s self-aggrandizing CYA statement separating his crackdown from anything Trump did at the border.
