President Joe Biden encouraged potential refugees not to travel to the United States after an influx of migrants at the southern border.

Biden has also come under fire, mostly from Republicans, for the influx of underage migrant children at the US-Mexico border.

Many migrants said they were inspired to migrate to the United States because of Biden's "more lax" immigration stance.

"We're sending back people... I can say quite clearly, don't come over... don't leave your city, or town, or community," the President noted.

The number of migrant children seeking to enter the United States has become a challenge due to a lack of facilities to shelter them. More than 4,200 underage migrant children were being housed in short-term detention centers as of Sunday morning.

Biden previously emphasized the importance of immigration reform, relaxing many Trump-era restrictions aimed at limiting immigration, according to USA Today.

In an interview with ABC News, Biden stressed that there have been boundary spikes in 2019 and 2020 as well. "It may be," Biden said when asked if the latest border situation is the worst.

He also addressed the problem of refugees flocking to the United States because they think he would be lenient with those who enter the border illegally.

"The idea that Joe Biden said, 'Come,' because I heard the other day that they're coming because they know I'm a nice guy. Here's the deal: They're not," Biden stressed.

Migrants do not try to enter the United States when the government is "being set up," according to the President. Fox News said Biden ignored his detractors who accused him of allowing refugees to enter the country.

Biden has confirmed that he has no intention to reach the southern border at this time.

"Not at the moment," Biden told reporters on the south lawn of the White House when he was asked whether he had any plans to visit the border.

The influence of presidential visits to bring public attention to crises and developing challenges is immense. Although the federal government has said it plans to see more refugees on the southwest frontier than the nation has seen in the past two decades, Biden and White House officials have said no tour is expected and have consistently declined to term the situation a crisis.
