Biden Is Intentionally Creating a Border Crisis

Biden Is Intentionally Creating a Border Crisis

President Biden has created a border crisis with malice aforethought. The caravans of migrants are again crossing the United States border in record numbers. They know that no matter how they enter America, they will get to stay.

In just the past four weeks, our border guards have arrested more than 100,000 illegal border crossers.  This is the highest number in a four-week period in more than five years – pre-dating the Trump administration.  Officials expect that number to reach one million by the beginning of summer.

When a reporter called the situation at the border a “crisis,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki pushed back.  She admonished the reporter, saying that “We should not be putting labels on it.” 

Psaki prefers calling the border crisis a “challenge.”

While most of the east coast news media are totally ignoring what is going on at the border, it has gotten so bad that even CNN is starting to cover the issue – saying that our border security personnel are “overwhelmed.”  

There is also a surge of unaccompanied minors – more than 3400 in the past few days – 10,000 in total.  There is insufficient space to house them.  Nine out of ten minors do not have a bed in which to sleep.  The government is putting up make-shift barracks — tents.  The handling of the kids is looking a lot like what had the Democrats going ballistic during the Trump administration.

But the greatest tragedy may be the kids who are not safely in the hands of U.S. border agents.  One migrant said kids begging and doing whatever is necessary to survive line the long trail to the border. “Many.” He said, “will not make it.” 

The Biden administration’s promise of sanctuary is enticing these kids.  The road from Central America to the U.S. border, however, is becoming a modern-day Trail of Tears for many who are lured by the promises – exaggerated as they may be – of the Biden administration.

Biden policies remove virtually all barriers – and create a number of enticements. 

By Executive Order, Biden ended Trump’s deal with Mexico to retain asylum-seekers south of the border as officials review applications.  Biden has reinstated the old “catch and release” program by which those apprehended at the border were given a court date and then released into the general public – including criminals.  Many of them we never see again – at least not until they wind up in the news for killing some innocent American.

The Trump Justice Department was taking actions against sanctuary cities to eliminate the creation of Democrat safe havens for illegal aliens.  Biden has ordered the cancelation of all those actions – literally establishing America as a sanctuary nation.

Biden immediately called a halt to the construction of the border wall. He even canceled the sections that have been contracted, paid for and partially erected.  That action alone has essentially been an enormous welcome mat for illegal entry.

The Biden administration is undermining the effort of our Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in ferreting out the criminal elements among the illegal aliens.  This is a particular threat to the minority communities where these types settle to carry out their evil and deadly deeds.

Under the Biden administration, illegal migrants seem to be the only people who do not have any travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Hundreds of those known to have Covid-19 are not quarantining.  And there are no effective procedures for determining how many may be asymptomatic virus carriers.

Trump proved that the right policies can restore the concept of “legal immigration” – and that we can protect the border.  Through strict enforcement, America was able to reduce the number of gangbangers and drug cartellians entering America – and to track down and arrest or deport the bad actors.

The question is why do Biden and the Democrats favor open borders and illegal entry?  Why do they do everything possible to prevent law enforcement of dealing with clearly illegal activities?

The one answer that dominates the conversation is that they believe that the masses of illegal aliens residing in America will enhance their political base in both the near- and long-terms.  That seems like a very cynical explanation – but is there a better one?  Even Biden and the Democrats cannot come up with a better one.

What is happening right now is only the beginning of an increasing rush to the American border.  It will not be long before even Psaki will have to admit it is, indeed, a humanitarian crisis.  But even then, Biden and the Democrats will not change their open-border policies.

So, there ‘tis.

    Larry, you know as well as I that this is just another mess that President Biden inherited from trump. Most of the issues arise from trump admin not even processing legit asylum claims and forcing legal asylum seekers to wait in Mexico. The Constitution that conservatives claim to love so much says we must honor our treaties.
    “Any alien who is physically present in the United States or who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival and including an alien who is brought to the United States after having been interdicted in international or United States waters), irrespective of such alien’s status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section or, where applicable, section 1225(b) of this title.”
    Now that Biden is honoring a long standing treaty as the Constitution requires, we have the mess that you right about.

      Ya……no. T45 got a handle on the illegal alien crowd trying & succeeding under the past three (3) presidents after more than eleven (11) million disappeared into American society.
      Building a wall, ending *catch & release*, deporting criminal aliens & gang members, securing agreements with source countries to stop the illegal flow & making illegal que-jumpers apply in their own country is & always will be sound immigration policies.

      Ballot-drop Joementia Biden*’s immigration open borders fiasco ideologies poses grave threats to the America.

      How many migrants will you house in your home? Are you ready to send the older ones to college? Will you pay for their English classes? Will you pay for their medical issues?

        Anna,
        I just don’t think a persons worth is based on on where their mother gave birth to them.
        But yes, universal state and community college and universal medical will go a long way toward improving millions of lives! And if it cost me a couple more tax dollars, then so be it.

          Ben … you are very generous with other people’s money. It is not just a couple dollars off your income. It is billions upon billions of dollars … AND almost half the money the Dems are spending is being borrowed. We are putting that burden on the back of future generations. Literally taxation without representation. You can see in Venezuela how long-term deficit and excessive spending took a very rich nation to the depths of poverty. The people are suffering. And that is what you want to visit on a future generation so that you can feel good.

            And just like that, republicans are worried about the National debt again.
            Look, trump added 2 trillion dollars to our National debt for permanent tax breaks for the elite. Not a peep about what it would do to our long term debt.
            Im sure we can help the most vulnerable of humanity without it adversary impacting our overall solvency.

      Ben, I feel sorry for you. Being a Democrat is tough enough but believing you are one must be terrible. Biden has destroyed everything America stands for. In his speech last night Biden’s first remarks were out right lies and it only got worse from there. Unity to Democrats mean we all vote my way. I pitty you.

        Micheal,
        I don’t need your pity. I sleep well at night and am comfortable with my political beliefs.
        Unity doesn’t mean you have to vote a certain way, but it does mean that we help our brothers. Like AOC did in Texas, while Raphael Cruz fled to Mexico.
        If Jesus ran for President on the platform of Human empathy and compassion, would trump’s party call him a libtard to his face? Or just behind his back?

      ILLEGAL ALIENS are suppossed to sign up and wait their turn to enter the USA…….They used to also get green cards to work here in the USA for a limited time…….HOWEVER, some of those illegals failed to go home and stayed here that the DEMS/RINOS did nothing about……………THE CONSTITUTION CLEARLY STATES that those illegals are to be sent home the moment they arrive here in the USA……….

      YOU have proven you know nothing about the Constitution, just like Biden and the rest of those DEMS/RINOS.

        Just because you capitalize a bunch of random words, doesn’t make you right.
        Our Constitution requires us to honor our treaties. Period.
        “Asylum seekers are supposed to be extended basic protections under international treaties created to protect refugees after World War II. The U.S. accepted refugees after World War II, and in 1968 signed onto the 1951 Refugee Convention , which diplomats created, and the 1967 Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees.”
        So ‘tis

      Bovine Scatology! To what “treaty” do you refer. Remember that it’s only valid if it’s consistent with that Constitution you fail to understand. They’re foreign invaders and should be treated as such (regardless of age, sex or any other irrelevant consideration).

        Rivahmitch.. is that an American name? Asking for some of the commenters here.

        The treaty was signed during “The convention and
        protocol relating to the status of refugees” after WW2. They are not foreign invaders, most are humans claiming asylum. We must honor our treaties

      Ben … you need to know your history. We have drastically lowered the bar on asylum. The treaty to which you refer presupposed that the refugees would be in life threatening situations — such as war zone, famines, etc. The fact majority at our border are looking for improved income and a better lifestyle. That has never — until now — been a legitimate reason for migration — legal or illegal. Our vetting process is supposed to determine who might have legitimate claims and who just want to live in America and get free stuff or better jobs. Even if you believe that any person who desires to be in America is a refuge, you still need to explain why Democrats do not want to have a legal and required vetting process — to separate those with legitimate cases and those without — and to eliminate the criminal class. Claiming that their are too many to vet just means we have open borders… period. That only nations that can have open border are those from which people wish to flee. So … I say, stick with the laws that have been put in place as part of our implementation of the treaty. It is the body of law that Dems are ignoring.

        Larry,
        “The fact majority at our border are looking for improved income and a better lifestyle. That has never — until now — been a legitimate reason for migration — legal or illegal“
        I was wondering if you even read your own posts?
        I desperately want to give you the benefit of doubt that you are directly referring to the treaty that we are bound to uphold. But, you say NEVER. so I’m guessing you forgot about all the European immigrants that came to the “land of opportunity”. Especially those dirty Irish.
        And speaking of history, you must know that most of the unrest and danger that is driving migration from Latin America is a direct result of our foreign policy. So we are reaping what we sow. Again, let’s stay out of other Country’s business in order to further our own. It continually backfires.
        Just so you know, we vet asylum seekers. The Dems aren’t ignoring the laws, quite the opposite, they our honoring our Constitution, the treaties we signed, International law and our own laws.
        Again, one’s humanity is not based on where their mother gave birth to them.

    Why don’t we provide every illegal alien being released into our country free maps of the hollywood stars’ homes like the ones Hollywood tourists get? Then the illegals can visit with and dine with their celebrity supporters.
