WASHINGTON, DC, Dec 7 – As thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens continue to approach and seek ways to cross our southern borders; the mainstream media seems to have lost interest in the slow-motion invasion of America. Meanwhile, left-leaning politicos have been doubling down on the goal of swinging open the doors and letting them overwhelm us one way or another.
Ironically, the Biden administration and its progressive cohorts in Congress, which have been encouraging the assault of unprecedented rush of illegals, are now beginning to take the heat from the invaders themselves. Irineo Mujica, a U.S. citizen who organizes migrant caravans, took a shot at the president and his cohorts recently when he told reporters that, “If I tell you the truth, I believe at least with Donald Trump we knew what we had. With Biden, we don’t know. He doesn’t seem to have a clue what to do with immigration because he says one thing and does another.”
Meanwhile, Mr. Biden can’t seem to win for losing, no matter what he says or does. A recent Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll shows that Americans are unhappy with the way he is handling the illegal migrant problem. To quote the results of the study:
- 81 percent think illegal immigration is a serious issue;
- 65 percent think Biden’s immigration executive orders encourage illegal immigration;
- 54 percent think he is creating an open border, not just trying to enforce the immigration laws more humanely; and
- 73 percent think the current surge in undocumented immigrants at the border is a crisis that needs to be addressed immediately.
Todd Bensman is the Texas-based Senior National Security Fellow Center for Immigration Studies, and he recently exposed a little-known element of support for illegal immigrants – a cabal of U.S.-allied governments. In a report he published on the Center’s Website, he revealed that Panama, Columbia, and Costa Rica have been aiding and abetting the creation of illegal caravans headed for the U.S. border.
As Bensman put it: “More international migrants are crossing through the gap than in anyone’s recorded memory now, all heading to the U.S. border. The Associated Press said so. Axios said so. Now, of late, on the front page of its Sunday editions, the New York Times has said so … But nowhere in any of this profoundly belated coverage was it mentioned that the U.S.-allied government of Panama is the primary official smuggler … Nor has it been mentioned that the U.S.-allied governments of Colombia and Costa Rica are just as complicit in materially facilitating the movement of migrants out of their territories toward the American border … Both Colombia and Costa Rica allow criminal smuggling organizations to operate mostly unfettered to achieve the national objective of clearing their countries of a potentially expensive problem. With friends like these pushing 70,000-plus immigrants to cause chaos and crisis on the U.S. southern border, as happened recently in Del Rio, Texas, and now Yuma, Arizona, who needs enemies?”
Bensman points out in his article that President Trump got the Mexican government to help control the flow of illegals through the country by getting them to deploy troops on its U.S. border. Now, he says, America needs to use its “diplomatic muscle” to confront Panama, Colombia, and Costa Rice and force them to cease. He says that we must bargain an end to their support for illegals heading north and encourage those governments to take them back.
“As a deterrent, there is perhaps no more powerful a tactic than repatriating immigrants back to home countries or designated safe third countries. We saw just how powerful a deterrent air repatriation was during the Del Rio migrant camp episode when President Biden ordered that at least 2,000 Haitians there be flown back to Port-au-Prince. Thousands promptly fled the camp to get away from even the prospect, as I reported, and all those on their way to the U.S. border suddenly stopped in their tracks and turned around.”
