Neither President Joe Biden nor the "Border Czar" Vice President Kamala Harris has addressed this situation.
There is a simple way to distinguish between a leader and a tyrant. A leader says 'let's go this way', and has people follow him. A tyrant says 'do this because I said so -- or else'. America is beginning to wake up to the fact that there are a lot of thin-skinned petty tyrants in elected office who aren't afraid of using the phrase 'or else'.
If you want to take a measure of the Biden administration's priorities, and how ruthlessly partisan it has become, you need look no further than how they handled the firing of two government employees.
