President Joe Biden has an immigration problem. One that will easily trump that of all of his predecessors and he has nobody to blame but himself.
On Day One, and beyond, Biden has signed numerous executive orders rolling back all of the policies that former President Donald Trump put into place to stop this very problem. What did he think was going to happen?
On top of the unprecedented influx of illegal immigrants — including a disproportionate number of minors — many of those people have COVID-19. Are they being quarantined? If so, where? And how? And who’s paying for it?
But I digress…
The White House can no longer ignore this insanely dangerous situation and as a result, Biden is dispatching senior White House officials to the southern border to get a read on just how bad this crisis is becoming.
Reuters has the story:
President Joe Biden has asked senior officials to travel to the U.S.-Mexico border and brief him on the government response to the influx of unaccompanied minors and steps to ensure their safety and care, a White House spokesman said on Thursday.
Biden’s administration is facing criticism from Democrats and activists who say unaccompanied migrant children and families are being held too long in detention centers instead of being released while their asylum applications are considered.
For their part, Republicans and immigration hawks complain that the willingness to let in more migrants while their asylum applications are being heard has encouraged more migration from Central America.
“President Biden has asked senior members of his team to travel to the border region in order to provide a full briefing to him on the government response to the influx of unaccompanied minors and an assessment of additional steps that can be taken to ensure the safety and care of these children,” White House spokesman Vedant Patel said.
The timing of the visit would remain confidential because of security and privacy concerns, Patel said.
U.S. Border Patrol agents caught more than 4,500 migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border on Wednesday, according to government figures shared with Reuters, a large single-day tally that comes amid growing fears that illegal entries could soar in the coming weeks.
Look, illegals already knew that if Biden were to win the White House, their chances of gaining entry and being released onto American streets was already increased. But nobody had any idea that Biden would be so aggressive in rolling back the very policies that would prevent this kind of situation from erupting.
Therefore, we shouldn’t be surprised that the perfect storm of ridiculous stupid policies coupled with a Democrat president would lead to this.
The worst part? There’s almost nothing we can do, as Americans. Republicans don’t have the numbers to stop him. All we can do at this point is pray to God Almighty that we win back the House, the Senate and hopefully, the White House in 2024.
