President Biden Takes a Break From His Afghan and Mexican Border Debacles

WASHINGTON, DC, Sep 20 — Secretary of State Antony Blinken admitted to Congress last week that there are still 100 American citizens and several thousand American green card holders stranded in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, there’s a massive new influx of illegal immigrants gathering in Texas. One can only hope that the news didn’t interfere with the President’s weekend trip to the beach. He left on Friday for the beaches of Delaware.

“There are now at least 10,500 migrants underneath the international bridge, with more coming by the hour. Intel is up to 10,000 more coming,” according to a message tweeted by Fox News.

Lt. Chris Olivarez, spokesperson for the Texas Department of Public Safety, told reporters that illegals were gathering under the International Bridge in Del Rio, TX and that most of them were Haitians. The island nation has been fraught with hurricanes, earthquakes, political upheaval, and economic issues, causing an exodus, mainly to South and Central America, over the past ten years. They are now on the move, heading for our southern border along with Mexican and Central American asylum seekers.

According to Forbes magazine, historical Border Patrol statistics, “nearly 28,000 Haitians have been arrested by the Border Patrol along the U.S.-Mexico border in the current fiscal year, which began last October, compared to 4,395 in 2020 and 2,046 in 2019.”

Olivarez says that the U.S. had been flying them back to Haiti when caught at our border. The Biden administration put a stop to President Trump’s border wall and abandoned his Migrant Protection Protocols [MPP], which require asylum seekers to stay on the other side of our border. And so back they came– in droves. But the surge has created crisis conditions at the border now, and so the administration has begun to deport the Haitians by loading them on planes and sending them back to Haiti. That is if the Haitian government will take them back. The airlift will continue for the better part of this week.

The MPP, known as the “remain in Mexico” policy, has been upheld by the Supreme Court, putting another monkey wrench in Democrats’ plans to take in as many asylum seekers as they can. But the Biden administration is doing all it can to stall compliance. Texas Governor Greg Abbott praised the Court’s decision, saying that “President Biden’s partisan reversal of this policy has helped fuel the record surge in illegal migrants and contributed to an environment on the border that is neither safe, orderly nor humane.”

The Texas PS says the ranks of immigration seekers include individuals on the U.S. terrorist watch list as well as a criminal element seeking to smuggle in hundreds of pounds of drugs. The border authorities have made 5,600 criminal arrests since March of this year.

It’s put President Biden in an untenable position. Progressive socialist lawmakers are telling him he has not done enough to undo President Trump’s policies that put illegal immigration in check. And Republicans and moderates are saying Biden’s policies have created a crisis.

According to Governor Abbott, “The Biden administration is in complete disarray and is handling the border crisis as badly as the evacuation from Afghanistan.”

House Minority Leader, Representative Kevin McCarthy [R-CA], issued a statement on Friday demanding that President Biden must “deploy the National Guard to the southern border to help our Border Patrol agents with more resources to control the situation.”

In his statement, McCarthy pointed out that back in March, Mr. Biden appointed his VP, Kamala Harris, to be his “Border Czar.” The border crisis was well underway by that time, with some 274,000 illegal migrants having been apprehended in the two months or so since their taking office in late January, he said. McCarthy noted that in the ensuing months, another 970,000 migrants have been detained, “and that’s just who our over-worked and under-resourced Border Patrol agents caught.” He promised to invite the Vice President to brief the House Republican Conference on the progress she and the administration have made in securing the southern border. “The Biden Administration must recognize this for what it is: A National Security Crisis.”

As for the debacle in Afghanistan, the New York Post reports that there were tens of thousands of Afghanistan citizens who worked for the U.S. during the war years who are still trapped in the country.

These are nationals who, during the war years, sided with us, helped us, and then were abandoned and, now, they are in great danger in the wake of the Biden withdrawal.

There is no official U.S. plan to rescue those that were left behind and so have to fend for themselves. But in the last days of the withdrawal, an unofficial group of American Afghan war vets took the initiative. Calling themselves the “Task Force Pineapple,” composed of current and former U.S. special operators, aid workers, intelligence officers, and others with experience in Afghanistan, undertook a black ops mission to save stranded Afghan soldiers and their families, according to ABC News.

Army Lt. Col. Scott Mann, a retired Green Beret commander who led the private rescue mission, told ABC: “Dozens of high-risk individuals, families with small children, orphans, and pregnant women, were secretly moved through the streets of Kabul throughout the night and up to just seconds before ISIS detonated a bomb into the huddled mass of Afghans seeking safety and freedom.” Task Force Pineapple managed to save more than 600 abandoned friendlies before the retreat was completed.

It turns out that those who were left behind were not left in the lurch, after all. Mr. Biden’s State Department is there to help [not much]. Apparently, they’re telling those seeking to get out of Afghanistan, all you have to do is pay a visit to a U.S. Embassy in one of Afghanistan’s neighboring countries to obtain a visa that will allow you to exit. The problem is, they’re not telling them how they can get out of the country.

It’s the kind of initiative that could have been taken on a broader scale if the Commander-in-Chief had the common sense and the gumption to challenge the enemy.

President Trump called the hasty withdrawal from Afghanistan the “dumbest move ever made perhaps in the history of our country … It’s so sad. It’s probably from the standpoint of military tactics and just embarrassment, the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to our country — we look like fools all over the world, we are weak, we are pathetic, we are being led by people that have no idea what they are doing.”

I served in Afgan, with the southern alliance and guys as far as I’m concerned I rather look like a fool than have one more US Service member die there.

Let’s see since Joebama O’Biden isn’t the real President in charge and Barack the puppet master is in charge, it really doesn’t matter where Joebama or the cackling chameleon are at any given time during the day or night, he can singlehandedly f**k the country up all by himself with a pen and a phone, remember?

James, Everything you say is correct. It is shear lunacy to expect something magical in 2022.
There should be conservative riots in the streets all across America.
There are no protests anywhere ??
Yes, America is doomed. Millions of sheep to the Socialist slaughter. There is no “Greatest Generation” alive any more to carry the torch of Democracy. There is no one with the guts to carry on.

Seems to me that Delaware might be the perfect destination for all the poor, disadvantaged “Only want a ‘GOOD’ life” seekers on our Border! Surely, Delaware, of ALL places, would be a good fit for them, and all those displaced from the Afghanistan Debacle…

There is an immediate resolution and it is in West Virginia. Another man called Joe. If he were to switch party affiliation AND vote with the Republicans, the GOP would hail a 51 to 49 majority in the Senate. Cackling Girl wouldn’t be needed to break any ties.
There shouldn’t be any. ????

Sure is great to have the “adults back in charge” instead of someone who keeps every single campaign promise, makes America safer in the world and safer at home, stops allowing our “friends” to free rides on American coattails and grew our economy like no other president in history. Oh, and worked out 3 Peace deals in the Middle East where even the ‘2nd coming’ from ‘08 to ‘16 didn’t even try but was awarded a Nobel “Peace” prize. Yep, really gotta love paying over $3 a gallon for gas as you watch tax dollars rolling down your streets filled with ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS because of the “adults” in charge. Thankfully all Americans love the drug cartels and human trafficking combined with a massive influx of heroin and fentanyl…now we can have a party, you know, since the “adults” are all busy in DC. And thankfully we don’t have as many military personnel to pay since the head “adult” decided to help our enemies murder them! C’mon man…serving your country honorably… who does that? Definitely not the “adults” in charge! EVERYTHING WOKE, EVERYTHING LIBERAL, EVERYTHING DEMOCRAT TURNS INTO A FECALFEST!

Why are the Republican House4 and Senate not suing the white house or the supposed commander in chief, for dereliction of duty?!?!
If they continue to keep him in the WH then why aren’t the conservatives fighting for the constitution????
I have asked my representative and they will not answer!
He has sworn an oath to the Constitution, to the American people to protect us and our way of life and pursuit of happiness. We’re not happy, he is killing our pursuit by loading the country with people who are not citizens and making us pay for it all!
Why isn’t he being sued like he continues to do to break the law!

I believe Joe Biden is mentally incapacitated, he should be removed from office before he damages the United States further. He has opened our borders to illegal immigration and those who do not follow our laws on immigration should be deposited at Biden’s doorstep in Washington, DC, and his home address in Delaware.
