Republican Rep Jim Jordan has written letters to DHS Alejandro Mayorkas and DOJ head Merrick garland asking them to explain their policies regarding attacks on federal property and employees in the city of Portland, Oregon.
Although he did not say it, he is obviously curious as to why they have been overcharging people who were in Washington on January 6th, while totally ignoring antifa rioting and the destruction of federal property, and attacks on federal officials.
The federal courthouse in Portland has been the target of many attacks on federal property, not to mention the bricks, rocks, and attacks with laser pointers that have left federal authorities blinded at least temporarily. But, since President Trump left office there seems to be no action taken against the rioters. Jordan wants to know why. In Portland, antifa rioted for over 100 days in a row but the riot in Washington lasted just three hours.
The DHS was recently forced to reinstall fencing around the Mark O. Hatfield United States Courthouse just days after they removed it due to attacks on the building.
Once the fence was removed the attacks started up again. The city of Portland tried to force Trump to remove the fencing but he refused even after Portland tried to levy fines against the federal government.
Jordan has given both Mayorkas and Garland until April 12th to reply. But, I do not expect answers and if he does receive them I imagine their explanations will be pure propaganda. We now live in a country where American lives don’t matter.
Fortunately, it will cost the Democrats dearly. Already moderate incumbent Democrats in the House are looking for other offices to run for because the Republicans look like a shoo-in for the 2022 elections.
Jordan cited journalist Andy Ngo’s February 2021 testimony in front of the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security in both letters. He noted that Ngo testified about “antifa and left-wing anarchists” developing “a riot apparatus that included streams of funding for accommodation, travel, riot gear, and weapons, which resulted in a murder, hundreds of arson attacks, mass injuries, and mass property destruction.”
In the letter to Mayorkas, the Ohio lawmaker requested an explanation on what the DHS or the Federal Protective Service (FPS) is doing “to protect federal personnel and federal property” in the city. The letter also asked for explanation on what is being done to prevent further destruction to federal property as well as whether the DHS “still believes that it has the authority, the mission, and the intent to enforce federal law and protect federal property in Portland.”
Homeland Security Secretary (HHS) Alejandro Mayorkas, who I have so far not been very impressed with, has said that he is preparing to take on sanctuary cities that refuse to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and he wants to see more illegal immigrants face criminal prosecution for illegally crossing our border.
Mayorkas has also refused to agree to abolish or break up ICE. He disagrees with President Joe Biden’s base of support to get rid of deportation agents totally.
Last week, during a virtual town hall with ICE workers, the head of HHS revealed his hard-line positions. He could have only been blowing smoke up their legs, so we’ll just have to wait and see. After all, he is a member of the Biden administration. So far I find everyone in that administration a despicable liar who hates this country.
Mayorkas gave notes to the Washington Time that said he is developing a new set of deportation guidelines that will govern how and when agents can arrest and attempt to deport illegal aliens. The devil is in the details, so I wonder if he will be transparent with the American people?
When ICE workers told the Secretary that they were worried about public resistance to their work, Mayorkas reassured them that ICE has a “noble mission.”
“I’m 100 percent opposed to the abolition of ICE,” he acknowledged to the employees. “It is the opposite of what I think needs to occur. I think we need to strengthen our policies and practices and communicate more effectively what we do and why we do it.”
I had to corroborate the next part where he went on to tell the ICE employees that he believes that more illegal aliens should be prosecuted criminally, which is a pretty big thing, because illegals are normally handled under what’s called administrative law, and the punishment is deportation. They just keep coming back again and again.
What most Fake News outlets will never tell you is that when you enter the United States by crossing a border illegally, you have committed a misdemeanor under Title 8 Section 1325, but if you are deported and you re-enter a second time or a third or a fourth or whatever it is now a felony offense under Title 8 Section 1326.
“I see cases now where we apprehend and remove individuals that I think need to be prosecuted criminally,” Mayorkas said.
Mayorkas also said, “Quite frankly, I’m going to have to understand why some of these individuals are not subject to a Title 8 USC 1326 case, and I intend to work with the DOJ in that regard.” I for one cannot believe that he would say something this blatantly against the Biden administration’s progressive Woke Supremacist agenda without having his own agenda behind it. Speech like that is more-than-likely going to get him into hot water with illegal alien rights groups who believe our system has already gone too far toward criminalizing illegal immigration. Deportation is going too far? I don’t understand where these people come from. If you steal a 5-cent piece of bubble gum from a store, you have just committed a theft, petty larceny, or whatever you want to call it, and you could possibly go to prison for that and get a criminal record. Crossing our border illegally is far worse than stealing a nickel’s worth of bubble gum.
The Washington Times asked DHS for comment on things Mayorkas said, but the department declined, noting that “internal discussions with our personnel, including those that are deliberative and law enforcement sensitive.”
When former Homeland Security officials were asked for comments, they pointed out that though Mayorkas’ language sounds good to the agents; they doubted his eagerness and ability to follow through. If he wants to keep his job, he will probably just let his words wither on the vine.
“I’ve seen this administration say a lot of things that I feel like they’re disingenuous about, and they know they can’t deliver on, but they pretend and leave their audience to believe they can deliver on. That’s what I see here,” another official said.
It’s not even a question anymore that the Biden administration is actively trying to keep the American people in the dark with what is going on at the southern border with respect to how illegal border crossers are being detained. It is now indisputable. The kinds of things Biden administration officials are doing to block access to media reporters and photojournalists would have caused liberals to scream from the rooftops had it happened under the previous administration, but there are no marches, no famous Hollywood actors doing videos to tell us what the think, no chants of kids in cages, none of it. Instead, we have administration officials lying about the situation, thinking the American people are stupid enough to believe that because they call what’s going on a circumstance or a challenge and blaming the Trump administration for the horror going on at the border. Fake News is trying to dumb it down as well, though some journalists are starting to ask for access. They would never have given the Trump administration any benefit of the doubt.
The video starts off with O’Keefe asking the border patrol agent to explain the document that was given to him who tells him the document is called the “Border Intelligence Daily.”
O’Keefe and the whistleblower agent both revealed shocking details in the report:
Sex offender encounters by US border patrol have reached a five-year high.
Criminal aliens with sex-related offenses are attempting to re-enter the US in record numbers.
There’s already 214 of these encounters sex offender encounters compared to the yearly total last year, which was 154.
Criminal aliens and sex offenders all have been previously deported from the united states for committing these crimes in the united states
The border patrol whistleblower went on to compare President Trump’s border to what it looks like now under President Biden, and said that the situation under Trump was much more under control. Yes, it was less crowded, but maybe that’s because Trump didn’t advertise to people in Central America that we were opening up the border for them and that we were no longer deporting illegals. Joe Biden, Jen Psaki, Alejandro Mayorkas, or any of the other members of the Biden administration who are clueless on how to handle the disastrous problems they created at our southern border can try to blame the chaos on Donald Trump, but the American people see what’s going on thanks to the efforts of people like James O’Keefe and others who work at Project Veritas.
In an unforgivable desire to undo all the progress that President Trump made with respect to fixing our southern border and illegal immigration problems, Biden shut down Operation Talon, a program that targeted illegal alien sex offenders who rape and molest women, including young migrant girls who are sent unaccompanied by their parents on the over one-thousand-mile journey to our southern border.
I cannot imagine there is a constituency in favor of ending targeting sex offenders to stop sex crimes and to prevent human trafficking into and out of our country. It is by far one of the worst things Biden has done while dismantling our country right before our very eyes.
And it’s not just sex offenders that the Biden administration is now allowing into our country. There are adult criminals who are getting past the border patrols and flooding into the country.
Another element no one in the Fake News media wants to talk about is while the Border Patrol is tied up handling thousands of illegal migrant children and adults pouring over our border, they don’t have the capacity to go after the human trafficking and mountains of drugs that the cartels are now running into America.
Fox News host Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday grilled White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki concerning the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis, asking her about allegations that the administration is blocking media from being allowed to see inside the facilities that are holding illegal migrants and the conditions of the detention facilities in which they are being held.
Reporters are accusing the Biden administration of blocking media access so that they can’t report on the border crisis, which the Biden administration says is anything but a crisis. One day it’s a challenge and the next a circumstance, but never a crisis. Award-winning photojournalist John Moore and a Getty Images Special Correspondent said he had to photograph the border crisis from the Mexican side of the US-Mexico border.
“I have photographed CBP under Bush, Obama and Trump but now – zero access is granted to media. These long lens images taken from the Mexican side,” Moore said earlier this month. ” Until now, US photojournalists haven’t needed to stand in another country to photograph what’s happening — in the United States.”
The Biden administration created an unofficial gag order on Customer and Border Protection (CBP) agents actively limiting what kinds of information they shared with journalists and keeping media people away from migrant facilities according to NBC News. What does the Biden administration have to hide? This is such bullschtein, and we are expected to not complain about it. Alejandro Mayorkas, the disastrous Homeland Security Secretary, denied such an order exists. What he means is there is nothing written on paper that orders the CBP agents to withhold information from journalists, but they were given the order, regardless. Don’t underestimate Democrats, they’re crafty.
Psaki lied during the interview with Wallace who told her that the Biden administration is being “less transparent than the Trump administration.” Anyone with a three-digit IQ knows that the Trump administration was the most transparent in our lifetime. President Trump made himself readily available to the press all the time. In his first year in office, he didn’t do a lot of formal press conferences, but he answered reporters’ questions as often as possible. He gave the press a lot of access to himself and his administration.
The segment started with Wallace pointing out that the only way Americans know what’s going on at the migrant detention centers is because members of Congress have toured some facilities and have released pictures of intentional centers. You just know they weren’t allowed to see the worst or the worst.
“These kids are living in these conditions now. They’re not living in these conditions some indeterminate time from now when the president says everything will be fixed,” Wallace said. “So why not allow reporters and camera crews in on a pool basis safely to take pictures and show the American people what’s happening in those Border Patrol facilities right now?”
Psaki responded to Wallace by lying that Biden, Mayorkas, and the administration are “absolutely committed” to providing media access. That’s just not true. The administration is blocking media access apparently because they don’t want the country to see what’s really going on in these migrant facilities until such time as they finally get a handle on it and then they will open up access to the media while claiming there was never anything wrong going on at all. That’s how stupid this administration thinks we are.
“When?” Wallace fired back.
Psaki told Wallace that the Biden administration had given Fox News access to a facility last week, adding the Biden administration is not blocking media from the facilities, but rather is limiting access because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ah, yes, the COVID excuse, good for most cover-ups. Psaki is being childish. Under previous administrations, media outlets were allowed to cover most facilities with minor temporary exceptions for conditions at the moment. But the press secretary wants you to believe that because the administration allowed Fox into one “approved” facility that it’s not blocking media access to migrant facilities.
Wallace hit back, citing that Fox News in fact wasn’t given access to a migrant detention facility, but to a different facility that was being run by the Department of Health and Human Services.
“Just to clarify, Jen, you allowed a camera crew in to see the HHS facilities. What we’re talking about here are the Border Patrol facilities, the detention cells,” Wallace said while Psaki tried to interrupt. “There is a law, let me just finish, that they are not allowed to be there for more than 72 hours, many of them are there for 10 days.”
“At this point, in terms of allowing access to Border Patrol facilities for reporters, you are being less transparent than the Trump administration,” Wallace added.
Biden was asked last week by a reporter about when journalists will be allowed access to cover migrant conditions and Bide replied with, “I don’t know.”
Late last week a photojournalist with a major very-well-known international image subscription service said that every president has allowed him to photograph US Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) operations going on at the US-Mexico border operations except for Democrat President Joe Biden. So why do you think that is?
The claims made by John Moore, a Getty Images Special Correspondent, come as a bipartisan group of senators now demand that Biden allow the news media to see the crisis that Biden himself has created with no end in sight.
Moore took to social media to air his complaint to the government for the entire world to witness. A guy who went by the name of Thomas Jefferson did the same thing once when he wrote the Declaration of Independence, where he was telling the world what the British government did to them. I’m not comparing Moore to Jefferson, but it is a gutsy move on Moore’s part just the same.
But at the same time, we have to recognize that a media blackout was self-imposed against former President Donald Trump during the 2020 election where the media simply refused to report any news whatsoever on election fraud allegations other than to claim they were false where there were mountains of evidence presented at a number of state legislature hearings after the Big Steal. And think about this. After the peaceful protest turned riot on January 6 at our nation’s Capitol Trump made many social media posts, including two videos, asking for calm and asking protesters and rioters to respect law enforcement and he even asking them to go home, but the same media who are now complaining about not being given access to news refused to publish either Trump’s pleas for peace or report that the social media tech giants censored him by removing all of his posts including the two videos.
“I respectfully ask US Customs and Border Protection to stop blocking media access to their border operations. I have photographed CBP under Bush, Obama and Trump but now – zero access is granted to media. These long lens images taken from the Mexican side. @CBP#gettyimagesnews“
CBP was established under the George W Bush administration in 2003.
“There’s no modern precedent for a full physical ban on media access to CBP border operations. To those who might say, cut them some slack – they are dealing with a situation, I’d say that showing the US response to the current immigrant surge is exactly the media’s role.”
“Photographing Border Patrol agents and immigrant encounters can and has been done respectfully without interfering with operations. Regardless, @cbp public affairs exists to work with media,” he continued.
“And Pandemic restrictions are not a valid excuse to block physical media access, especially to operations that are outside. There are easy alternative options to media ride-alongs.”
“Showing the difficult and important work of @cbp agents in the field, while also photographing immigrants in a dignified way are not mutually exclusive endeavors. Transparency is key, even in a politicized environment.”
“The photographs in this tweet string were taken with a telephoto lens from across the border in Mexico. Until now, US photojournalists haven’t needed to stand in another country to photograph what’s happening – in the United States.”
“The vast majority of river crossings by asylum seekers happen on federal land in south Texas’ Rio Grande Valley. The federal govt. controls access to those areas,” he concluded. “The Border Patrol has been removing journalists who enter, including recently myself, CBS, others.”
Last week several reporters excoriated White House Press puppet Jen Psaki over the lack of media access the Biden administration is offering to the press. One of the reporters reminded Psaki of one of the things Joe Biden said, that if elected his administration would “be the most truthful and transparent administration.” It has been anything but truthful or transparent.
During a press briefing, one reporter cited that it was three weeks since someone first asked Psaki about access for journalists inside the southern border facilities, “Why are we still not seeing any images inside these facilities?”
“The DHS oversees the Border Patrol facilities, and we want to work with them to ensure we can do respecting the privacy and obviously the health protocols required by COVID,” the press secretary replied.
What health protocols? The Biden administration isn’t testing the “unregistered Democrats” for COVID as they walk across our border.
Biden DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said during an interview last week that if “loving parents” send their child alone to the US-Mexico border, the Biden administration will not only not expel the child, but will also “care for” the child.
Maybe it’s statements like that which caused former President Donald Trump to point out that Mayorkas is incompetent at his job.
“He’s incompetent and just mark my words, take a look at what’s going to happen over the next fairly long period of time because they might not be capable of stopping it,” Trump said in an interview with Newsmax.
Trump continued, “You take a look even now you take a look at the thousands of people that are pouring up from South America, Latin America, pouring up into our country, and they don’t even stop them, they just let them walk right in. They’ve totally lost control of the southern border. We had it under total control.”
As with everything else in his too-long political career Joe Biden overdid it with calling all migrants to rally at our southern border. Sending the message out that there is such a thing as a free lunch our borders are flooded with multiple surges of southern American migrants whose only skills are taking freebies paid for by American taxpayer dollars and voting for Democrats in the future.
As the migrant facilities at our southern border are being thoroughly overwhelmed by the insane amount of migrants arriving, the Biden administration’s solution to the border crisis Biden created is to put the migrants up in hotels, and this of course will come at a colossal price tag to the American taxpayer. It always does and you’re not allowed to complain about it.
The Biden administration is planning to spend $86 million to rent hotel rooms to shelter 1,200 migrant family members who crossed the US-Mexico border, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials informed the uber leftist website Axios. The hotels in the border states of Texas and Arizona, for now, will lodge migrants for about six months, but “could be extended and expanded.”
Can you imagine the conversations going on between the migrants and their friends and families back home through their iPhones? “Yeah, these stupid Americans put us up in a hotel and they’re paying for it!”
A non-profit group called Endeavors of San Antonio are organizing the hotel arrangements claiming they connect ” vulnerable populations across the United States to a wide range of helpful services.” The non-profit’s website declares they offer: “Direct care, migrant wellness support, case management, home study and post-release services, staffing, and holistic programming for unaccompanied migrant children and families.”
The number of migrant families that attempted to cross the border skyrocketed in 2021 – thanks Uncle Joe! – climbing from 7,000 in January to over 19,000 in February according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Apparently word got out that the USA is open for their business. Other than voting for Democrats we don’t really yet know what other business the clowns in DC have for them.
DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas conceded this week that the US government is “on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years,” and they feel really good about that. A senior official with Immigrant and Customs Enforcement (ICE) echoed the sentiment.
Folks, what are we doing to our society? It’s not racist against “brown people” to worry about so many people from other societies being brought into our society in one felled swoop like this. The Biden administration is not only not testing these tens of thousands of paupers coming into our country for COVID-19 but they aren’t testing them for anything, because they don’t have the capacity to do so. Poll after poll shows the American people are not in favor of what’s going on and yet they are still being charged for the costs of it all.
On Saturday, DHS said it’s going to open yet another facility in Pecos, Texas that will house another 500 unaccompanied migrant children, and that they will expand the capacity to 2,000 kids whose parents sent them on the dangerous trek alone.
I’m sorry, but someone has to talk about the elephant in the room so I guess it will be me. Do we want the parents of children who they allowed to travel over a thousand miles by themselves to be a part of our society? Honestly, all bullschtein beside, would you trust these people to watch your kids? And you just know that eventually, the Woke Supremacists in the administration are going to give us a sob story about how gosh darn awful it is that these poor migrant children have to be here all alone without their parents and so we must pay for them to fly business class to America to reunite families that never should have been separated in the first place. Damn that Donald Trump! Yes, that’s how absurd this whole thing has gotten.
“While ORR has worked to build up its licensed bed capacity to almost 13,500 beds, additional capacity is urgently needed to manage both enhanced COVID-19 mitigation strategies and the increasing numbers of UC referrals from DHS,” a spokesperson for the Office of Refugee Resettlement said.
“I got notified about an hour ago from HHS, that they’re opening up a new unaccompanied minor facility in PECOS, which is in my district, out in West Texas. This facility is going to house between 500 to 2000, unaccompanied minors, it appears as if they’re targeting unused man camps. These are oil facilities where workers, temporary oil workers, house when they’re operating in the oil gas industry,” Representative Tony Gonzalez (R-Texas) told Fox News on Saturday. “There is no end in sight, I’m told there’s two other facilities, and they’re also looking at attending this crisis is getting out of control.”
Word went out that the Biden administration is going to send up to 3,000 unaccompanied teen migrants to live in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, for up to three months.
Folks, this is out of control. The simple solution right now is not to give band-aid fixes but to stop the hemorrhaging by making announcements that the American human pipeline has now closed. A report that came out earlier this month revealed that one facility is at 729 percent capacity and that the kids in cages have to take turns sleeping on the floor. The children are only allowed to take a shower once a week if they’re lucky.
This is better than the system designed under Trump? Give me a break.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott had a few words for the way the Biden administration has been handling the crisis at the border that Joe Biden himself created with crazy executive orders, a crisis that the Biden administration won’t even admit is a crisis calling it a challenge instead. They think you’re so stupid that you’ll believe it’s not really a crisis because they’re referring to it as a challenge.
“The Biden Administration has been an abject failure when it comes to ensuring the safety of unaccompanied minors who cross our border,” Abbott said in a statement. “The conditions unaccompanied minors face in these federally run facilities is unacceptable and inhumane.”
Remember all the lefties who screamed KIDS IN CAGES! KIDS IN CAGES! KIDS IN CAGES! for a year under the Trump administration? Where the heck are they now? Where’s AOC and her group of silly progressive Congresswomen? Remember when AOC said Trump created concentration camps at the border for illegal migrants? What’s going on right now under Biden is far worse than anything under Trump and yet we hear not a peep from the Squad.
“The Biden Administration has no excuse for subjecting these children to these kinds of conditions,” Abbott said. “President Biden’s refusal to address the border crisis is not only enabling criminal actors like human traffickers and smugglers, but it is exposing innocent unaccompanied children to illness and potentially unsafe living conditions. The administration must act now to keep these children safe, secure our border, and end this humanitarian crisis.”
“The Biden Admin. has turned a humanitarian crisis into a complete disaster,” Abbott wrote on Twitter. “They were unprepared for open border policies.”
This will not come as a shock to you but the Biden caliphate has been lying to you about the number of kids coming into the county. They have been saying they have 4,000 children in custody but a CBS investigation has found the real number is over 13,000 children. And remember, there are more coming in every day and we may need a tax increase to support all of them and give them free healthcare. Free to them but not to you.
Biden refuses to even go to the border to see what is going on for himself but he should go. If he does I hope he remembers what border he should be going to.
With Joe, you never know. maybe if he sees it for himself, he will begin to call it a crisis. No, he will never do that. He would have to admit what the illegals are already saying.
They say that Biden is the immigrant president. Well, he sure as hell isn’t doing anything for Americans.
Joe Biden’s DHS Chief Alejandro Mayorkas has opened the floodgate and announced that the DEHS will allow many more illegals into the country. Caravans are setting up in Central America for them to trek to the United States.
Biden has done everything but send out engraved invitations to the illegals when he announced his amnesty plan. It will never pass because Democratic support is not strong in the Senate.
Last time they tried to pass amnesty, they lost 5 Senate seats in the next election.
President Donald Trump fixed our broken immigration system. Under the Trump administration, illegal border crossings plummeted over 87 percent where the 400 miles of the wall was constructed. There were nearly 5,000 troops deployed to the border because the situation there was a crisis. In addition to our troops, Trump made a deal with Mexico who then deployed tens of thousands of their own soldiers and national guardsmen to secure their side of the US–Mexico border. Trump ended the disastrous Catch-and-Release program that caught illegals coming into the country and then allowed them to stay while they waited for their deportation hearing that zero illegal aliens ever showed up. Under the Trump administration, the US entered into three historic asylum cooperation agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to stop asylum fraud and resettle illegal migrants in third-party nations pending their asylum applications. The fraud in immigration at our southern border is so transparent that even MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough would be able to understand it. That was then.
On Tuesday, President Joe Biden told reporters that he doesn’t have any plans to visit the US-Mexico border to witness the size of the growing migrant crisis that he personally created.
“Not at the moment,” Biden said to reporters on the White House lawn as he left for an afternoon trip to Pennsylvania to promote his recently passed $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.
Joe Biden reversed all of the good things that the Trump administration did to fix our immigration problem and thanks to that we are now back to the Obama years where we once again have an immigration crisis at our border only now thanks to the barrage of executive orders that Biden signed at the beginning of his presidency the crisis is far worse than anything we’ve ever seen according to the experts who are in the field at the border on the frontline, the frontline that Joe Biden refuses to go visit.
On Monday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) visited the Mexican border with a delegation of Republican colleagues and after that experience, he insisted that Biden visit the border himself.
“I know the president’s going to travel this week. This is where he should bring Air Force One,” McCarthy said in El Paso, Texas.
On Tuesday, Alejandro Mayorkas, the current Homeland Security Secretary said federal officials are nearing a 20-year high in apprehensions along the US-Mexico border. Maybe that’s because Biden’s rhetoric before and after the election motivated tens of thousands of migrants south of our border to start to make the trek northward knowing that the administration would let the unregistered Democrats in.
“We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years,” Mayorkas said.
Mayorkas said most single people “are swiftly expelled to Mexico,” if families in Mexico have the space to house them. I don’t believe that for a minute. Unaccompanied children are housed in crowded detention centers as they wait to be placed with family or sponsors. Under Trump, they called them kids in cages but now they’re in detention centers… that have the same exact cages.
About 30 percent of the people crossing the border were under 18 in February. There were 29,792 unaccompanied children detained without their parents, about five times more than in January, of whom 2,942 were under age 12, according to US Customs and Border Protection.
What kind of parents would send their children alone on a dangerous journey like that? How many of those kids are grabbed up by human traffickers and forced into the sex trade industry? Do their parents think that a life in the sex trade industry is better than living in Honduras?
The number of migrants apprehended at the Mexican border increased to over 100,000 in February, which is a 28 percent jump from January.
Republicans and anyone with a three-digit IQ know that Biden’s policies are creating huge incentives for migrants to make the trip.
Biden ended Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy that kept Central American asylum seekers in Mexico until the American courts reviewed their claims. Biden did that even though the US Supreme Court ruled that the US can continue the program. This was a common-sense policy the protected American interests because under the Obama administration what they did was when illegal border crossers got caught they would immediately claim they were seeking asylum even though there’s no war or persecution going on in their country of origin. That what activist immigration lawyers would advise them to do to get around the system. So the Obama administration would then allow the illegal border crossers to stay inside the country while the courts reviewed their claims for asylum knowing that they were going to be denied and so they never showed up for their hearing and no one in Obama’s law enforcement ever went after them. it was an Obama de facto amnesty if you will. And now it’s back and there is nothing good about it for the American people.
Biden is also pushing legislation to create a path to citizenship for the over 30 million illegal aliens already in the country. Democrats have used the number 11 million for 30 years as if the millions who have crossed our borders since they started using that fake number never stayed.
Joe Biden has created a real mess at our southern border and the Democrats in Congress are willing to help him do even more damage to our country with new immigration laws because they see illegal aliens as unregistered Democrats that once amnestied will be their ticket to winning elections forever. Their socialist policies finally caught up with them in the black and Hispanic communities and once they lost those two voting blocks they figured uneducated penniless paupers will do just fine to replace them so long as they can vote Democrat.
Chuck Schumer is warning Joe Biden to do something before the border crisis becomes a disaster.
Schumer should have also warned him about amnesty as well. Before, when Schumer was involved with the Gang of Eight Amnesty bill, the voters rose up and tossed out 5 Democratic Senators in the very next election. He does not want that to happen in 2022.
The Republicans could retake the House and the Senate as the Democrats try to push a radical agenda down their throats.
Schumer is very much pro-illegal immigration but he got snake bit in 2014 when his party lost the Senate during another period of ramming socialistic policies through the House and Senate.
The border is in crisis and Biden has no plan other than to stand back and let the flooding begin.
While it’s probably true that the Democrats are ready to dump Biden in favor of Harris, she was the most radical Senator in 2020.
The problem appears to be that Biden is listening to the far-left zealots like his new DHJS chief, Alejandro Mayorkas, and not the Democrats who recognize what open borders could do to them in the next election.
The year they passed Obamacare, they lost 63 seats in the House.
Considering that Democrats are voting solidly on party lines this type of red wave could appear again over the next couple of elections.
Schumer then predictably tried to blame Trump for the crises at the border but the truth is Trump got and maintained control of the border, whereas Biden surrendered on the border combined with his encouragement to illegal aliens to flood our borders has turned the border into a disaster area.
He is unlikely to change it because he is afraid the illegal aliens will get mad at him.
Biden’s deputies may be trying to edge away from their easy-migration policies as huge numbers of poor foreigners rush to get into the United States.
“Some more [migrants] may have come to our border, and there has been a large flow of children across the border,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Thursday. “We recognize that, but we made a policy decision because we felt it was the humane approach.”
However, Jacobson told reporters on March 10, “going forward, we will continue to look for ways to provide legal [migration] avenues in the region for people needing protection.”
