In the same way that a $2,000 Covid relief payment rather than a $600 check suddenly made sense to Democrats in congress after Trump left office, Joe Biden’s exploding illegal immigration crisis at the U.S./Mexico border might finally convince Dems that “the Wall” makes pretty good sense.
The true impact of the situation has been revealed, of course, because even CNN is starting to cover it.
Considering the long-held opinions of Americans living on the southern border about the problems they deal with every day due to illegal crossings, it’s a good bet that the people most in favor of Biden’s ridiculous faux pas are the coyotes and drug cartels who are making bank off Biden’s as yet un-admitted disaster. It’s easy to see why some members of the recent northbound caravan were wearing Biden campaign shirts.
It is in fact too much of a good thing for the Biden administration, but it culminates in precisely what the policy mechanics in his administration intended. Importing eventual Democrat voters was the objective, after all, in having the sleepy chief executive dismantle Trump’s border protections and announce to the world that trespassing on U.S. soil was open season. The mass importation of future voters has been a major page in the Leftist playbook for years. The problem has arisen now that too much public attention has been drawn both to that scheme and the human toll of its disastrous mismanagement. Democrats wanted illegal immigration to proceed unabated, unnoticeable droplet by unnoticeable droplet – not like an attention-getting fire hose.
South Texas rancher Emily Lord King told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner this explosion of bodies happened overnight. Now, coyotes are just driving right through property fence lines onto U.S. soil. In the previous four years the family had one incursion by a transport of illegal migrants. Since the middle of January, they’ve had one a week.
Not just is there an increase in volume, she said, but ill-equipped border agents know they don’t have facilities and manpower to handle the surge, so they’re not bothering to arrest everyone in the vehicles. Many are just left to wander around the properties and neighborhoods and find their own way in the Land of the Free.
Biden and the Democrats so solidly supporting this disaster refuse to discuss the inhuman toll of illegal immigration taking place on the Mexican side of the border and exacted on the impoverished and desperate. The cutthroat coyotes smuggling human cargo think nothing of murdering or abandoning any member of their shipment if he or she becomes a problem for the transport. Drug, extortion and prostitution transactions in order to generate coyote fees or trade in exchange for transport are commonplace. It is perhaps the most scurrilous of crimes targeting the most poor and unfortunate. On the U.S. side, not only are migrants composing a pipeline of fresh Covid-19 infection, but they face similar victimization by unscrupulous criminals on this side of the border as well.
But the misery is worth it, apparently, to Democrats obsessed with growing those Hispanic voting majorities. The problem has become that now even the mainstream lapdog media that worships the new Democrat regime can’t ignore the skyrocketing numbers of “children in cages” at the border. The analogy of The King Wears No Clothes comes to mind, and the blame falls indisputably on Biden.
Meanwhile, the president and his posse barely speak publicly of the situation. His mental acuity waning, the President is kept to a limited daily schedule to minimize the further revelation of his disability.
In nearly two months in office he has yet to face reporters or the public unscripted. That should give America pause, but so far only conservative media have made a point of it.
If left unsolved, this disaster has the potential weight to capsize Biden’s presidency and usher in more sensible Republican leadership not just in the 2022 midterms but in the next presidential election as well.
In the meantime, the debacle at the border leaves the country to wonder just how much damage the Left and its Hand Puppet in Chief can do to the country in four years.
