Did Joe Biden Declare an Emergency Because of His Border Policies?

Political close the border Biden sign in yard

Joe Biden has declared an emergency and called the fire department over a bit of smoke in New York City. The smoke? It results from a proverbial fire he started on our southern border.  

Much like the plumes of smoke from western U.S. and Canadian forest fires that hit the jet streams in the summer and irritated East Coasters, drifting migrants from more than 160 countries have shown up in NYC neighborhoods, seemingly out of nowhere. Just as diluted smoke is a reminder of the conditions at a faraway inferno, 100,000 migrants flocking to the Big (Sanctuary) Apple is a fraction of the 6 million illegal crossings on the southern border.

After being sworn in as president, Biden immediately went on a 100-day executive order binge to burn down any semblance of a secure southern border, including stopping the border wall and selling off the construction materials. As if that weren’t bad enough, he put the nail in the coffin in August 2022 by ending the remain-in-Mexico policy and again in May 2023 by reinstating the Obama-era catch-and-release program.

Illicit drugs are pouring across the border, killing an alarming 300 Americans daily and poisoning many more. One hundred fifty people on the terrorist watch list have been apprehended at the southern border. Nearly 40 percent of the catch-and-release migrants have disappeared. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors have crossed our border amid rampant human and sex trafficking. 

None of that was enough to get the administration’s attention. Not until New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul raised the alarm about the burdens unprecedented waves of migrants are putting on the city’s ability to meet the requirements of its own sanctuary city program.

As hotel after hotel filled up with migrants, the mayor found that he had no room and insufficient funds to keep going, so he and Hochul sought relief. To smooth over the problem without addressing the actual cause, Biden consented to an emergency declared by the governor to help New Yorkers clean up a fire that his own administration started. In other words, the arsonists are reporting the fire.

To ease the strain on NYC, which needs more space to build migrant shelters in an area where space comes at a premium, Biden turned to his friends at the National Park Service, who manage a modest amount of outdoor space in the city that gives families and individuals a place to breathe fresh air and experience a hint of nature. That’s precisely why the Gateway National Recreation Area was created, and, as the website advertises, “Gateway offers green spaces and beaches alongside historic structures and cultural landscapes. Every day, Gateway is open for you to explore, envision, and enjoy!”

Floyd Bennett Field, America’s first municipal airport, served as a naval aviation station in World War II and was created as a unit of Gateway National Recreation Area in the 1970s. It hosts 1 million people a year seeking an outdoor experience. It provides playgrounds, a recreation area, a hanger converted to a hockey rink, an ecology village, natural areas, grasslands restoration, camping areas, picnic areas, fishing access, kayaking, archery, cycling, walking and running trails, and a host of other offerings. But to Biden, they see is a large open space where migrant shelters could be hastily constructed.

However, Congress intentionally made it very difficult for National Park Service lands to be used for any purpose other than that stated in the mission of the National Park Service: “to preserve unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.”

The only way National Park Service land can be used for a different purpose is for the federal government to declare an emergency. That happened when Hurricane Sandy hit New York, and Floyd Bennett Field was used under an emergency national disaster order as a staging area and location for the distribution of emergency supplies.

This time, under the radar, the administration tried to pull a fast one and declare an emergency to sign a lease with New York City to build migrant shelters to house thousands at Floyd Bennet Field. Not only has Biden waived the mission of the National Park Service, he’s also waived environmental laws, including the National Environmental Policy Act and the Endangered Species Act, to expedite construction. 

But New Yorkers were watching, and now Congress is watching in this unprecedented move to use National Park Service land for migrant shelters.

That’s why Democratic and Republican lawmakers have filed a rare joint lawsuit in New York to stop these actions and why the House Committee on Natural Resources held an oversight hearing to get to the bottom of the administration’s schemes.  

Remember: Where there is smoke, there is fire. Joe Biden set the fire.

Biden is willfully Violating his Oath of Office, while acting in a criminal manner in ignoring current federal immigration laws and should pay the bills, personally after being incarcerated while awaiting trial! His Cabinet as well!!

Excellent article. Perhaps the old adage about give someone enough rope and they will hang themselves may be happening to this fraudulent administration. In their effort to undo everything “Trump”, they are reaping chaos and destruction. Now that some in their own party are crying like spoiled brats, laws are of no concern, the people’s tax dollars will flow like honey, to these blue sanctuary cities and states. Hopefully those foolish enough to have voted democrats into office previously will reconsider this next election.

6 million? It was anywhere from 350k to 1.5 mill this August. And that’s according to CBP numbers. It’s more like 10 to 20 million since that America destroying moron stole his office.

Joe doesn’t care!! He doesn’t understand what all of these illegals are doing to the financial structure of our country!! Did he really do this – allowing millions of illegals to enter our country and just basically turning them loose for the sole purpose of gaining Democrat votes?? Well, illegals can’t vote, at least not now, and he may be turning some Democrat voters off with his lack of a border policy and lack of enforcement of the actual immigration laws and pushing them to vote Republican!!! I can hope that Trump keeps his promise to repeal any executive orders that the Biden administration put in place especially regarding his illegals and going after them to deport them!! That may be the sole item that gets him elected!!

The party always railing about “colonialism” doesn’t seem to mind being colonized. Bindens “emergency” will not be to secure the border but to send the NatGuard to expedite processing. Just watch.

Biden and his whole administration is a complete and utter evil joke. They are completely anti-American and go against the principles of true tax paying Americans. They cheated their way in and no one did anything to stop them, there has been plenty of impeachable offenses to this country, by destroying this country and our economy. It makes me sick to see what the left has done in just a couple years. Every time he opens his mouth is a lie, they get away with so much crap, it’s insane!!!!

THAT-GUY Joe Biden is a known cruel, cold, and vicious abusive slob who rejects even the young granddaughter fathered by The First CrackHead Son.THAT-GUY Joe Biden has made an enemy of the American citizenry and we’ve had long expericne with these types of people who behave like liege lords in what they regard as their fiefdoms. Biden is likely unfamiliar with what is known as game theory which is a certain subset of games known to mathematicians and economists as zero-sum. The zero-sum games deal with resources that neither increase nor decrease in amount but only shift from one player to the other. So it is with Joe Biden. Someone somewhere will put a boot so far up his withered azz he’ll have to eat his dinner with a shoehorn.

Hey Punkydoodle, that nursing home released that 95 year old American Veteran and instead replaced him with one of Joebama’s ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS from his Open Borders fiasco policy. Under Lying Joebama, 6 million ILLEGAL ALIENS represent 6 million more potential Democratic voters. By the way, how do you feel about Robert Kennedy Jr. deciding to run for President as an Independent since the Communist wannabe Democrats aren’t interested in a Non Communist Democrat?

Since Dictator Beijing biden has been letting in Thousands of Communist Chinese Soldiers dressed in civilian garb since 1-20-21, of course there is an emergency. The emergency is that he keeps letting TERRORIST, FOREIGN SOLDIERS, and CRIMINALS enter the United States with his blessing.
WHERE IS YOUR OUTRAGE AMERICA?
WE ARE BEING INVADED.
PEOPLE, THIS IS INTENTIONAL ESPIONAGE AND HIGH TREASON BY DICTATOR Beijing biden AND HE MUST BE STOPPED.
