Even Dems are Distancing Themselves from the Biden-Harris Illegal Migration Dilemma

WASHINGTON, DC, Mar 25 – As the surge of illegal immigrants at the U.S.-Mexico border intensifies, Americans express their growing concerns in two new polls. 

Rasmussen reports that 65% of respondents to its survey see border security as a vital national security interest for the United States.  “Sixty-two percent of voters say it is more important to gain control of the border than to legalize the status of undocumented workers already living in the United States,” according to Rasmussen.

Another poll conducted by Politico shows that support for the notion of a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants has declined dramatically, down 14% in the past three months, mostly among Democrats.  In fact, among respondents who identified themselves as Democrats, support dropped from 72% three months ago to 57%.

According to Politico: “The idea of giving illegal immigrants a way to become citizens has been popular for several years, but the new poll numbers show Democrats could be losing the battle of public opinion in the wake of GOP messaging.” 

The new border crisis, for which the Biden administration is taking heat, is at least partially responsible for these new numbers.  Even the Washington Post seems to put the blame on Mr. Biden.  As the Post put it, “He issued five immigration executive orders on Inauguration Day alone and promised an immigration policy far more humane and welcoming than that of his predecessor. His administration also began allowing unaccompanied minors into the country, a marked departure from the Trump administration’s approach.”

Rep. Vicente Gonzalez [D-TX] also seems to put the blame on the president.  The Post quoted him as saying, “When you create a system that incentivizes people to come across, and they are released, that immediately sends a message to Central America that if you come across you can stay.  It incentivizes droves of people to come, and the only way to slow it down is by changing policy at our doorstep. If they don’t change the policy, the flow of continued migration traffic isn’t going to stop or slow down.”

The president puts the blame for the calamity on former President Donald Trump, as does Vice President Kamala Harris, who has taken over the task of dealing with the crisis.  He says she will take measures to stem the migration to our border with Mexico, but he did not say how she’ll do that.  Nor has he said why he is not taking charge. 

Meanwhile, the news that Ms. Harris would be taking over the task of dealing with the border crisis was not well received in some quarters.  Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey was quick to call her “the worst possible choice.”  Ducey said, “If President Biden’s intent was to show that he’s taking this issue seriously, he’s really done the exact opposite here.  He’s completely trivialized this issue by putting someone in charge who flat out just doesn’t care.”

Biden seemed to contradict himself as regards his blaming Mr. Trump when he declared to reporters last Sunday that “We’re in the process of doing it now, including making sure that we re-establish what existed before, which was they can stay in place and make their case from their home country.”

Does that mean he will reintroduce measures that Trump put in place that successfully dealt with the border surges in his day? 

Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas. “They have created a humanitarian crisis down here at this border that you have seen now. And the reason why they [migrants] are coming is because he says words do matter, and they do. The messaging is that if you want to come, you can stay.”

All those children, given up by their parents into the hands of utterly untrustworthy predatory coyotes, have become the pawns in this political football game. Does anybody really care about them? What any one of them has already endured in terms of abandonment, abuse, and neglect will cause irreparable harm. A vast number are likely to be sex slaves, gang members, drug dealers, homeless, or worse. No matter how bad it is in their countries of origin, it can’t have a worse chance for a happy future for most of them than staying here. We can humanely absorb a little bit of this, but the numbers make it impossible to really do the right thing for most of them.

In many cases they’ll be going “from the frying pan into the fire” when they move to some of the most dangerous cities in the world, Chicago, NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, St. Louis, L A, Seattle, Oakland, CA, Portland, OR, et al. Many of them will rue the day they left their native homes for the despair and danger they’ll confront here every day at the hands of incompetent and/or outright corrupt Democrap governance.

Yes! Victoria you are, absolutely right, but the origin of this people exodus, was long time pre-fabricated from their own governments and corrupt-leaders as, 1-2-3, (first, they want to control their nations population. (second, they want the dollar these illegal-immigrants earned working illegal in this country. (third, they like a free/dollar came, to their Banks. “hey!-Joe’ wakeup” and restore the law and put-order at our south-border line. “NOW”

Why are we not surprised? Bumbling Bidense, the Inept, has truly mastered the art of shooting himself through, not one, but both feet, and with a howitzer no less, each and every time he does ANYTHING! As I have said before, Vertical Corpse Bidense is truly a King Midas in reverse, i.e., everything he touches turns instantly to sh*t!
 
If all this metastasizing border immigration insanity is allowed to continue, we will soon have to rename all our southern border states: Calimexico, Mexizona, Nuevo ý Mejorado Mexico and Mexitexas. Carried to its logical conclusion, eventually our country will also have to be renamed: North Mexico.

For Pete’s sake, top blaming Trump. Biden made a very bad decision. His invitation during campaign put out a big invite.l You screwed up Biden, now suffer and take responsibility for the blunder.
What happened to the days when everyone came in legally? Go back to Trump’s set up.

America has had immigration laws for many many years that our ancestors had to comply with.
So why would Biden and his leftist socialists try to do away with those laws?
if they can bring millions more illegals in, they are counting on everyone of them to then vote Democrat. That is the only reason and is against America’s laws and moral ideals.
Everyone who came here legally had to go thru the legal process of applying for and acquiring a visa, undergoing background checks, and meeting requirements set by law. Entrants were quarantined to prevent the spread of disease from foreign lands. Only 250,000 per yr used to be allowed entry, then dimorats raised it to 1 Million. Now the leftists want unlimited numbers plus amnesty for the 20 or 30 million already in the U,S. so Demorats would be in control of our government forever.
This would be unsustainable, America would not could not survive.
We would quickly become slave subjects of China and Russia as spoils of war.

Dems should do MORE than distance themselves. They should return to PRO AMERICAN legislation. Look. It’s just plain COWARDICE to go along with a crowd of “thieves”, and like it or not, that’s EXACTLY WHAT THIS “UN-DULY”, “FRAUDULENTLY” appointed ADMINISTRATION IS….
LIARS AND THIEVES, not to mention, HELL BENT ON DESTROYING OUR USA!
Stand up and do the your job… WORK “FOR” WE, THE PEOPLE, NOT for the enemies of FRESOM. Represent Americans and American values. Citizens of our nation should not allow ourselves to be divided…. “divided, we FALL”! Grow a pair & do the right thing to preserve liberty and justice for ALL AMERICANS. No exceptions! Anything else is UNACCEPTABLE!

Correct, but has anyone noticed that Pilot Light’s Out Bidense and Madame Mao Harris seem to be like Siamese twins joined at the hip? Almost every time one sees Bidense on TV, Harris is present nearby. Bet she is just waiting with baited breath for Bidense to croak on the spot so she can instantly step in and crown herself as our new president! Gee, then our nation would have experienced two Great Pretenders in a row as our president.

It certainly is NOT fair to the people who go thru the current legal process for approximately 2 years and pay thousands to become a LEGAL CITIZEN of these United States! And it’s certainly NOT fair to the, so called ILLEGAL immigrants crossing the bounder in mass, to subject them to physical danger and death. Promising them a utopia that probably will not be realized for most of them. Abominable! Why are the other countries government never criticized in depth by our officials? As to NOT providing a peaceful prosperous economic environment for their own citizens,so they will not feel a need to come to the US? It seems the responsibility lies with the other countries government officials.

It’s ironic that many of the American cities to which they will be sent and end up living in are more dangerous than the countries they’ve left. i. e. Chicago, L A, Baltimore, St. Louis, Washington, D C, NYC, Portland, OR., Seattle, etc.

It’s increasingly difficult to continue living in a nation under the out of control far left wingers. They are a bunch of sick dudes. Possibly when it gets worse the illegal immigrant situation will be alleviated such as North Korea , Cuba, Venezuela. With lack of Civic education we are loosing our way as a nation. The evacuation of the coast cities and the loss of their tax base will be the final blow to their now debt crisis. Our hope now is the 22 election and following 24 election. We are one nation under God. Let’s rise up to the occasion.

They’re not worried about “the loss of their tax base”. The spigot to unlimited funds from the Federal Treasury is now wide open to fill in any shortfalls and then some.

I’m fed up with foreigner nationals pouring across our border illegally referred to as immigrants or migrants. They are invaders and should be treated accordingly. Jail them then send them back to where they came from.

President, D.J. Trump was correct in his assessment when he said, “The rights of a nation its to have boundaries, because without our borders we have no nation.” Trump was also right. there is no question in my mind that the “WALL” in our south-border line its comes with benefits to both nations. “Good fences make good neighbors.” –Robert Frost

No, “the best thing” is to send them right back across the border NOT to bring them farther into the interior to disappear into the general population until Biden gives them unconditional amnesty and citizenship.

Most Americans know the dems have been ignoring the laws of our nation, especially since the 2008 election. We have allowed what will soon be 2 people who HATE our country, and do not qualify to be POTUS, to occupy the White House (obozo and, soon, harris)!! And worst of all, we have allowed the dems to steal the 2020 election by fraudulent means (we know it, the dems know it, the media knows it AND the courts know it!), but most Americans have sat on their backsides and done NOTHING about it! The founders of this country and our forefathers would NO DOUBT be very disappointed and ashamed of our lack of courage! What is not worth fighting for is deemed to be not worth keeping! Maybe we deserve to lose what was (and, so far, still is) the best country on earth!

This administration is the very “WORST” in the history of our nation. You just knew, after 4 years of lies, costly & unjustified investigations of a duly elected President, that the criminal Dem party and their criminal RINO cohorts would absolutely STEAL the White House! We now have CRIMINALS running our nation “into the ground” with purposeful ‘evil’ intent. I’ve recently heard it said, that ‘this’ cannot be ‘fixed’ with words alone.

The Biden administration is the most incompetent, ill-informed, out-of-touch with reality of any administration in my adult lifetime … even Jimmy Carter seems to have been conservative compared to this mind-fogged administration. Our Constitution and continuity of laws and enforcement has hit the lowest in my adult lifetime (65+ years).

This is not a ‘failure’ to them. It is exactly what they want. Chaos and collapse the system so ‘the people’ will demand they make it stop and they can implement their socialist solutions to a CRISIS they caused in the first place. “Cloward and Piven”, Saul Alinsky, Karl Marx, Mao, Weather Underground Manifesto, etc. There is plenty of documentation of their goals and intentions going back for over a century.
