It’s late to save America from the White House-sanctioned, sovereignty-shattering invasion of illegal immigrants. To draw a baseball parallel, the Patriot Citizens are in the bottom of the eighth inning, getting a 6-0 bombardment from the last U.S. Biden administration.
Still, the Citizens have two sticks – six outs – remaining, enough time to fight back and win, assuming their rally begins immediately.
Some observers wonder how things at the border got so bad, so fast. The explanation is simple: cheating and lying by Biden, Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, Vice President Kamala Harris and the administration’s inner circle of unelected cronies – the director of the Domestic Policy Council of the United States, Susan Rice, Acting President of the Obama Foundation, Valerie Jarrett, and Michelle and Barack Obama. , who have managed to amass $70 million in wealth since their days in the White House. They threw spitballs and stole signs, and no one holds them responsible.
Biden’s cheating on a criminal and unconstitutional level is indisputable. Throughout his presidency, Biden knowingly, willfully, and flagrantly violated numerous immigration laws. The president has defied the entire Immigration and Nationality Act, legislation that defines who can immigrate to the United States, sets out the procedure for applying for visas and from where applications must be submitted, and specifies the rules that new immigrants are legally bound to follow. to follow. These were rejected without conferring with Congress. King Biden rules by decree. Unabashedly, even when the courts rule against him, Biden’s brazen rejection of immigration enforcement continues unabated.
In early March, the U.S. District Court in North Texas outlawed the Biden administration’s policy of excluding unaccompanied foreign minors from Title 42, and broadly denied the administration’s efforts to dismiss the lawsuit filed by the Texas and Attorney General Ken Paxton. The court’s final order found that the Biden administration’s actions are: “arbitrary, capricious…or otherwise inconsistent with law.” Biden ignored the court order. Instead, the administration continued to resettle significant numbers of minors in the United States — 122,000 unaccompanied migrant children were placed in shelters in 2021 — leading to the largest wave of child trafficking. child criminals in the history of mankind. The flood of resettled illegal alien teenagers and minors will drain public school resources, overcrowd hospitals, and provide a pipeline for Northern Triangle gangs like MS-13.
In another announcement that will increase the burden on taxpayers, Biden’s DHS Secretary Mayorkas proposed a new rule that would allow migrants to use public benefits like SNAP, CHIP and Medicaid while their green card applications are pending. under review. Mayorkas’ proposal violates the principle of public charge which states that newly arrived immigrants should be self-reliant and not dependent on taxpayer subsidies.
Biden isn’t the least bit shy about publicly lying about his immigration agenda. In his State of the Union address, with 38 million viewers tuning in, Biden said: ‘We need to secure our border and fix the immigration system’ – the chaotic ‘system’ that he and Mayorkas have created. Since Biden’s speech, the border crisis has escalated and will worsen in late May once Title 42 ends.
Much of the blame for the border mess lies with voters who always get the government they vote for. Biden’s campaign pledges included halting deportations of illegal immigrants for 100 days, ending construction of the border wall, and amnesty for illegal aliens. Biden chose California Senator Kamala Harris, whose Senate voting record was among the most liberal, as his running mate.
Before being elected to the Senate and speaking as California’s attorney general, Harris said “an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal.” Since her appointment as Czar of the False Frontier, Harris has shown that she, too, like her boss, can lie. Said Harris: “While we are clear that people should not come to the border now, we also understand that we will enforce the law and so will we – because we can chew gum and walk at the same time – need to address the root causes… . ”
Identifying the root causes of migration, Harris concluded, will end illegal immigration. But the root causes of the migration turned out to be Biden and Harris’ unprecedented and unrelenting violation of immigration law.
What happens between now and the November 2022 midterm election, a date that could mark a turning point in law enforcement, is once again up to the voters. Democrats have at least four vulnerable open border incumbents on the ballot in Arizona, Georgia, New Hampshire and New Mexico, more than enough seats to topple the Upper House in a 50-50 deadlock, a step important in stabilizing border invasion. At this historic low point in border control, stabilization would represent a triumph.
