Joe Biden has reversed many of the tough-on-illegal-immigration policies of former President Trump. He has ordered the construction of the wall to cease, is back to catch-and-release programs, and has even said that illegal immigrants should receive government-funded health care.
He has even reinstituted the cages to hold migrant children that he decried Trump for using while on the campaign trail. This should come as no surprise given the fact that the Obama-Biden administration built the cages in the first place.
Or, in the words of Donald Trump: “Who built the cages, Joe?”
That was a rhetorical question, of course. Now President Biden is claiming that these aren’t actually cages but rather much more friendly-sounding “migrant child facilities.”
Those that define words rule the society…and Democrats are really good at redefining terms to suit their needs.
Even the New York Times had to admit that Biden’s immigration policies have become a magnet for illegal immigration. Central Americans are flooding the United States border at a rate not seen in years.
The New York Times reported, “Thousands of migrant children are backed up in United States detention facilities along the border with Mexico, part of a surge of immigration from Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence…
The number of migrant children in custody along the border has tripled in the past two weeks to more than 3,250…
Border agents encountered a migrant at the border about 78,000 times in January — more than double the rate at the same time a year ago and higher than in any January in a decade…
Immigration authorities are expected to announce this week that there were close to 100,000 apprehensions, including encounters at port entries, in February, according to people familiar with the agency’s latest data. An additional 19,000 migrants, including adults and children, have been caught by border agents since March 1.”
Biden’s open border policies include supporting government-funded health care even for unauthorized immigrants. He supports a sharp increase in US refugee admissions and a path to citizenship for all undocumented immigrants.
He opposes chain migration and has stopped building Trump’s wall.
In November, Biden said that he would propose legislation to Congress that would make all illegal aliens citizens.
Biden said, “I made a commitment, in the first 100 days, I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America.”
Opening the border to 11 million illegal aliens is especially radical and dangerous, but Biden goes beyond that by opening the border permanently. ICE and Border Patrol will become irrelevant because there will essentially be no border to protect. A country without an enforceable border isn’t a country at all.
If the plan is to garner more Democrat votes, then it is a good one for Biden. Essentially, they are making an implicit deal with these illegal aliens: We—the Democrats—will let you into the country and make you citizens, if you’re willing to vote for us.
As always, Open Borders Joe is putting America last, and those from foreign countries first.
Somebody might want to wake Sleepy Joe up and let him know that he is the president of the United States. His job is to defend America, not allow mass illegal immigration.
Sadly, that is asking too much. These policies, like illegal immigration, are here to stay.
