“Joe Biden is no Barack Obama,” Laura Ingraham, host of ‘The Ingraham Angle‘ said on Fox News on Wednesday. “Now, Obama is almost 60, but he still has the swagger. You see it. He’s one of the most talented politicians of the last 50 years … But of course, they tried this — almost [along] the same lines in 2016 with Hillary Clinton. And they failed miserably.”

Democrats will argue that Biden is in a better position than Clinton was four years ago, Ingraham said, joking that the former vice president has two running mates — Kamala Harris and the coronavirus pandemic.

“But two problems with that,” she said. “Kamala, she’s too radical for most swing voters … And COVID is beginning to fade in the red states where people are going back to work, going back to school, playing football and they know this.”

Ingraham said voters who think a vote for Biden represents a third term for Obama should take a “reality check” and examine what Obama accomplished in office.

“His trade policy encouraged more outsourcing of American jobs to foreign countries,” she said. “He supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership, remember that? Which was so unpopular, even Hillary Clinton walked away from it when she campaigned. And Biden disingenuously, of course, claims he’d change it.”

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
