If the Biden administration owned and operated a cemetery, no one would die. Biden’s manufactured border crisis has now metastasized into a border calamity. It is hard to fathom how the White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki can keep a straight face, calling it a “border challenge”, not a crisis, or calamity.
Perhaps when you are used to lying to the American people for a living, it comes easy. This is the mantra for the modern-day democrat in Washington D.C. and across the blue states. “Don’t worry, they are peaceful protesters”, “there’s no crisis on the border, it’s just a challenge”. I am a true believer in perception, but these democrats give new meaning to incompetent awareness. The Biden administration is proposing a measure that would automatically release those detained-on asylum claims without giving them a notice to appear in court, or a subsequent court date. In case what you just read is unclear, that means, just show up at the border, claim asylum and you do not have to appear.
Welcome to the streets of America. The rationale behind the ill-conceived plan is that “there is no other place to hold them” according to a Biden insider. This unprecedented move places the responsibility of contacting the courts on the illegal immigrants entering our country. What could possibly go wrong with this? Border officials have gone on record to state “we are overwhelmed by the influx of migrants at the U.S. and Mexico border”, “it’s a crisis spiraling out of control”. Officials admittedly do not have the resources to stop the cartels from funneling migrants into the United States, not to mention the large number of illegal drugs being smuggled daily.
The increase across all border states has stressed the local jurisdictions, so much that Governor Abbott of Texas has called up thousands of national guard troops to assist at Biden’s bloody border. As of this week, President Biden has no plans to visit the U.S. Mexican border. Experts and law enforcement officials have noticed a drastic increase in deadly gang battles with rival cartels and the number of human rights abuses are becoming immeasurable. Women and children are being trafficked at record numbers once again, while assaults, rapes, and other civil rights abuses are up over 700%. All this just shortly after Biden ended Trump’s signature wall and “stay in Mexico” policies which subsequently thrusted 71,000 migrants into the American justice system unnecessarily, in less than a month.
The Biden administrations response to this crisis was to issue a media black-out and order Border Agents not to speak to the press. So much for the “most transparent administration in history”. The Trump administration had negotiated with Mexico and the Central American countries known as the “triangle”, to keep migrants on their side of the border, while the asylum cases could be heard in the American court system. The Biden plan, or lack thereof seems intent on creating a manufactured humanitarian crisis on our nations southern borders and serves to create a new wave of “dreamers” or undocumented residents here in the U.S. The immigration facilities at the border are so overcrowded that the inept Biden admin is proposing to ship these undocumented migrants to the “northern states” as a measure of overflow retention.
This also shifts the burden to the states and their regional jurisdictions. Every state’s attorney general needs to block and challenge the usurping of the immigration process and policies, and violations of federal, state, and local laws. This is all part of the “long dark winter” that Joe Biden promised us.
Thanks and God bless. Vincent
