The border is enforced like always, Republicans use seizures and arrests as proof the border is open or some such nonsense. Drugs always come through but the same is true in prison. Including border security makes me think this is a right wing cartoon.
I’m not up to date on the baby formula but that seems to be a private company production issue.
Gas prices will go down if the global supply is increased but that is up to the top oil producing countries and how much they want in the global market. Higher prices means more revenue for them. Lifting sanctions on Venezuela and Iran would help but I doubt the right wing wants that.

Everyone knew gas prices would go up when Biden put economic sanctions on Russia’s oil and natural gas. Biden knew. He even told us. It was about “freedom” he said. Later it was “Putin’s price hike”. Energy goes up, inflation goes up. That’s economics 101. People in the White House aren’t effected financially by Biden’s inflation. They’re more concerned about crushing Russia’s economy even if that means the American people must suffer financially. They don’t, as the song goes, “don’t give a damn”.
We knew the U.S. wanted to shut down Nord Stream 2. Trump wanted to shut it down. So did Biden. Cheap natural gas to Europe was unacceptable. As far as I’m concerned, this war could have been avoided with good diplomacy and compromise. Later, we’ll look back and wish they used real diplomacy.
