78-year-old Joe Biden seemingly admitted on Tuesday that his administration does not have the U.S.-Mexico border “under control” when pressed by a reporter over the subject.

Biden made the comments during a brief interaction with reporters at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City. The U.S. southern border has faced record-setting border crossings since soon after Biden gained office in January, Daily Caller reported.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Tuesday urged Biden and Mayorkas to “immediate put a stop to these expulsions”, calling it “hateful and xenophobic Trump policies”.
