Democrats lying about the border
For years, Democrats have claimed that they did not support open borders. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas recently declared that the American southern border is NOT open. Vice President Harris told migrants that they should not come to the border because the border is NOT open. President Biden has repeatedly claimed that he does not support open borders. Those – and scores of other statements like them — are nothing more than cover for the Democrats’ longstanding open border policy. Basically, they are bald faced lies.
As Democrat leaders pay lip service to securing the border, they implement policies that signal to potential migrants that the borders are wide open. If you come, you will get to stay in America – legally or illegally. There is in fact an underground system to settle illegal aliens in diverse locations. There are civic and religious organizations that will find housing and serve as welfare consultants so that illegal aliens can get a full range of taxpayer benefits.
Under Biden policies, illegal immigrants will be protected FROM law enforcement – ranging from limitation on the enforcement responsibilities of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), mandated lack of cooperation with local law enforcement and sanctuary polices in Democrat-controlled communities.
Democrats claim that those who are allowed to remain in America must still be vetted – and are required to appear before immigration courts. The dates given for such hearings, however, are usually several years in the future because of the backlog – and because of the enormous number of people entering America under Democrat open border policies.
Even worse, the vast majority of those who are supposedly required to appear in court to press their case for permanent asylum never show up – and are never tracked down. They become just a growing number of illegal immigrants that the Democrats want to grant overarching amnesty and citizenship.
The recent arrival of more than 15,000 migrants – mostly Haitians — arriving in Del Rio, Texas is the latest and most flagrant example of the Biden open borders policy. While Mayorkas talked about deportation as a political sop, the reality is that more than 12,000 of the illegal aliens under the bridge in Del Rio have been disseminated into the American population. If the past is prologue, the vast majority of these folks will simply take up residency without fear of deportation. Many will be birthing “anchor babies” to enhance their defense against deportation. Many of the women at the border are pregnant already.
Those who still want to come to America for a better life – some for jobs, but many for the welfare benefits – know that what the Democrats say and what they do is far different. They know that if they arrive at the American border with Mexico, they have almost a 100 percent chance of entering the United States – with only a nominal chance of being deported. And if they are among the few that are deported, they simply need to come back a second time. That is also true of those deemed to be unqualified for asylum or are for various reasons deemed to be undesireables.
That is why between 20,000 and 30,000 foreign citizens are currently amassing for the next trek to the border. One does not need a crystal ball to see the future crisis as tens of thousands show up … again. It is not unreasonable to believe that with Democrats in charge of immigration, we will see a future with hundreds of thousands of people showing up at the border. Not only is the border open, but all the enticements remain.
We have laws on the books that address the proper and legal manner to enter the United States. Democrats are simply refusing to enforce the laws. They will not build the wall. They will not hire more border patrol and immigration judges. They will not deport. Instead, they demonize those who are commissioned to carry out the laws –ICE, the border patrol and local law enforcement long the border.
Most of those arriving at the border are hardship cases of one sort or another. That does not mean that they meet the legal eligibility for asylum. Most do not. But Democrats ignore those requirements.
The Democrats’ open border policy does not effectively address disease – specifically Covid – and criminal backgrounds. Drug cartellians and MS13 gangsters have used the open borders to their advantage – too often costing the lives of innocent Americans.
It is not anti-immigration … it is not racism … it is not xenophobia … to want a LEGAL process to deal with people wanting to enter America for any reason – jobs, touring, schooling or asylum. The Biden administration’s refusal to secure the border is a gross violation of the President’s oath to uphold and obey the laws and the Constitution – as it also is with every member of Congress.
There is only one explanation why Democrats would implement an illegal open borders policy. The radical left believes these folks will support the Democrats’ radical left ambition to create an authoritarian one-party central government. We can only hope it does not work.
So, there ‘tis.
