Biden and The Border

Biden

WASHINGTON, DC, Nov 4 — It’s a few days before the much-anticipated midterm elections.  The outcome will decide whether we sink or swim. The disastrous failures of the Biden administration’s socialist regime have ruled our lives for the past 22 months. Joe Biden and his henchmen wasted no time in creating chaos: Afghanistan, the soaring rate of inflation and cost of living, recession, and unsustainable government spending.

Meanwhile, to make matters worse, within days of taking office, we saw the beginnings of the unprecedented invasion of illegal immigrants at the Mexican border — an invasion that has surpassed crisis proportions. The latest count provided by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency [CBP] shows that nearly a quarter of a million migrants sought to enter the U.S. last month. According to the CBP, in the Fiscal Year 2022 that ended on September 30 a staggering 2,378,944 migrants — up 37% from the 1.73 million recorded in FY ‘21 — tried to illegally enter the country. That number doesn’t include the so-called “gotaways,” illegals who managed to evade the border patrols. Correspondent Bill Melugin at Fox News says there were 599,000 gotaways in FY ’22.

Andrew Arthur is a Resident Fellow in Law and Policy for the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, DC-based research institute that examines the impact of immigration on American society.  In his recent report, he questioned the fact that the CBP’s Fiscal Year report on the immigration crisis came much later on a day and time that appeared odd. “On [Friday] October 21,” he wrote, “I questioned why CBP’s September statistics on alien encounters at the Southwest border were delayed, particularly given that immigration is on the ballot in this year’s congressional midterms and that early voting for many of those races had already begun. It was only after 11 PM that night that the agency finally released those numbers, captioned ‘Nationwide Encounters.’ It’s unfortunately common in D.C. to hide bad news by dropping it after close of business on Friday (a maneuver termed a “news dump”), and those numbers contained some very bad news, indeed: The border is in freefall, spurred by the Biden administration’s immigration policies.”

To put his report into context, as Arthur put it, “if all the aliens that agents stopped [in September] were concentrated in one U.S. city, it would be the nation’s fifth largest.”

The Border Patrol reported that they encountered 98 non-U.S. citizens on their terrorist watch list.  However, based on the numbers provided by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, the danger for Americans is considerably larger. The governor reports that since he launched his own border patrol — Operation Lone Star — its “multi-agency effort has led to over 317,000 migrant apprehensions and more than 21,000 criminal arrests, with more than 18,600 felony charges reported.  In the fight against fentanyl, DPS [Texas Department of Public Safety] has seized over 342 million lethal doses of fentanyl during this border mission.” Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid, the single deadliest drug threat our nation has ever encountered, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration [DEA]; it’s been killing hundreds of thousands of Americans over the past two years.

Abbott points out that the U.N. has declared the U.S./Mexico border “the most dangerous crossing in the entire world…If the Biden administration did what I just did a few weeks ago, declaring the cartels as terrorist organizations, it would trigger a federal law that would allow him to go into [the cartels’] bank accounts and get those billions of dollars the cartels are making off this crisis.”

Perhaps the Biden administration has some unfathomable reason for its lackadaisical approach to the crisis at our southern border. A recent exclusive interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation reveals that Mr. Biden turned down an offer by the president of Guatemala to help the U.S. check the illegal migrant surge. “Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei said the Biden administration refused to provide Guatemala with the tools to deport illegal migrants heading to the US…he’d requested that the Biden administration move its deportation planes and buses to Guatemala for the country to use in returning illegal migrants to their home countries before they reach the U.S. He said it would save the Biden administration hefty costs of such large migration waves and allow migrants from faraway places to go home immediately.”

I don’t believe that Biden wants to solve a problem that he intentionally created.

Biden and the DumbocRats are so far out of touch with the people, the Constitution, and common sense that even the US Hispanic citizen population along the Southern border know it is 99% folly. That is, they do recognize the danger such ineptitude on this issue brings to all US citizens. But Biden and the DemocRats are hustling to find bodies they can convert to illegally cast votes. Biden and the DemocRat Party is not just the honorable opposition … they are a clear danger to this Nation’s security, and they are inviting chaos in this Nation to reign for years into the future.

Perhaps Uncle Joe refuses to call the cartels terrorist organizations because he would then lose their kickbacks to him, Hunter, and the Democratic Party. Just thinking out loud.

DICTATOR Beijing biden might have a bigger problem…few days ago he said he met the Inventor of INSULIN, though the Inventor DIED YEARS BEFORE DICTATOR Beijing biden was born.
DICTATOR Beijing biden IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE
UNITED STATES of AMERICA.
Just look at his ILLEGAL ALIEN TERRORIST INVASION, CRIME OUT OF CONTROL, ZERO ENERGY, FOOD SHORTAGE, FUEL SHORTAGE, GROWING INFLATION, DESTROYING ECONOMY, SPYING ON AMERICANS, RIGGING ELECTIONS, POLITICALIZING DOJ, FBI, IRS, PUSHING FOR NUCLEAR WAR WHILE DESTROYING OUR MILITARY WITH LOSER WOKE GARBAGE.
And that doesn’t even scratch the surface. While all at the same time letting in TERRORIST.
THESE ARE ACTS OF TREASON.

Dream on Johnh. If you haven’t figured out why the Biden administration is doing what they’re doing regarding the southern border by now, then you don’t understand the Democrat agenda at all.

Biden should be in prison, plain and simple. Being demented, gives no one the right to destroy our country, and lying Biden is actively ruining the USA. Red China doesn’t even come close to being as malicious and destructive to the future of our Constitutional Republic.

How long before they crowd the schools and do not speak English. Our American students are so far behind this will only stop education for all. What a disgrace to our citizens and county. We are invaded and everyone who is picked up should be immediately sent back

The US should pass law making English as our language & then teach only English in our American Schools & that would make everyone equal at one language. When they get to High School, then can take foreign language electives if they choose.

The author writes “Perhaps the Biden administration has some unfathomable reason for its lackadaisical approach to the crisis at our southern border.” Please have the guts to speak the truth when you write articles and don’t try to hide behind some obvious obfuscation. The answer has been what it always has been. Democrats want to change the voting demographics of the country to one that ensures they win all elections and stay in power in perpetuity. That’s been their agenda since Teddy Kennedy’s immigration reform bill in 1965. The Hart-Celler Act.

The criminal plan has always intentionally been to Break Everything, so they can be re-elected to Fix It. Other thoughts come to mind about the true nature of the people currently infesting the national government: transgressions, treachery, treason by elected officials and thier minions.

Why is no one asking how much $$$ the Biden syndicate is getting from the cartels for letting them control our southern border?

Reason is DICTATOR Beijing biden doesn’t want it to show up on his bank accounts and tax return.

So true! And I suspect that several more officials in our government are raking in funds while kids continue to die because of the drugs coming into our country.
