Joe Biden has finally described the surge of migrants, including unaccompanied minors at the border, as a “crisis” months after he and Democrats refused to used the word to describe the situation.

Biden spoke to the media following a round of golf at the Delaware Country Club on Saturday.

Biden explained why he reversed his position on raising the caps set by Donald Trump on refugees.

“The problem was that the refugee part was working on the crisis that ended up on the border with young people,” he said to reporters.

“We couldn’t do two things at once."

"But now we are going to increase the number.”

In March, over 18,500 unaccompanied children crossed the border, 60 percent more than the 2019 record of 11,494.

Biden previously refused to describe the flood of migrants as a crisis in March.“No,” he replied when a reporter asked him if it was a crisis.

“We’ll be able to handle it. God willing.”

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas also refused to call it a crisis.

“I think the answer is no,” Mayorkas said at the time.

“I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki slipped up in March when she mistakenly called problems at the border a “crisis.”

“Challenges on the border,” she said when asked by a reporter if the administration had changed its view of the crisis.

The majority of Americans have disapproved of how Biden has handled the spiraling crisis at the southern border.

According to a new Quinnipiac poll, just 29% of Americans approve of how Biden is handling the crisis.

But 55% of Americans disapprove of Biden's handling.
