Joe Biden’s so-called “Border Czar” has announced she will be stepping down at the end of April. Roberta Jacobson, who formerly served as the U.S. Ambassador to Mexico, made her intentions known Friday.

Having spent just 81 days on the National Security Council as of this report on April 9, Jacobson admitted in March that the Biden administration has been “sending mixed signals” to Central Americans over the likelihood of being allowed into the U.S.

Her resignation came amid a 71 percent increase in illegal crossings since February. This was in addition to the 16,500 unaccompanied minors held by the federal government at the expense of $60 million per week in taxpayer money.
