WATCH: Newt blasts Biden, accuses him of signaling to the world that the United States is “open for illegal immigration”

Appearing on Fox and Friends, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich blased President Biden and accused him of signaling to the world that the United States is “open for illegal immigration.”

Gingrich said “when you’re dealing with a president who forgets the name of his secretary of Defense and forgets the name of the Pentagon, he could probably, I don’t know that he walks away but probably sit away forever.”

“Why would any of this affect him?” Newt asked “He will say, ‘Oh gee, I guess that’s probably a problem.’ And I think that we really underestimate the degree to which he’s detached from reality and the degree to which people will, later on, look back and say, ‘Gosh, there were terrible consequences, why didn’t we know better?’ Well, we did know better, but we adopted a policy deliberately that sends a signal you know, everywhere in the world, whether they’re watching ‘Fox & Friends,’ whether they’re just talking to themselves, people gossip, and they learn and everywhere in the world right now the signal is out that the U.S. is a welcome mat, that President Biden would love for you to come stay, and the economic opportunities in America, despite everything, are still so much better than in most of the world.”
