In his first week in office President Biden revoked President Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy.
In April he tried to stop the application of Title 42, under which DHS has the authority to expel migrants during a pandemic. It remains in place only through court order.
These political signals invite would be immigrants to cross the border illegally. Placing themselves in great danger in so doing.
Having enticed millions of migrants to cross the border, where processing capacity and housing facilities are catastrophically inadequate.
In order to avoid pictures of kids in cages For compassionate reasons, the Biden administration was forced relocate tens of thousands of them away from the border. This was a mostly surreptitious effort conducted at night to avoid public scrutiny.
In addition, hundreds of thousands of them have moved on on their own. Secretary Mayorkas admits we have no idea where they are.
I an effort to assist the President, the governors of Texas and Florida have moved a few hundred migrants, who volunteered, to ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions in other parts of the United States.
Fifty (50) of these were recently flown to Martha’s Vineyard, provoking primal NIMBYism from wealthy Progressive residents at whose behest the “sanctuary” label became their community credo. They’ll need new slogans.
The President is unhappy anyone dares to move a few migrants to places well situated to care for them. Places, until confronted with reality, advertising a deep desire to care for the displaced.
He is apparently not unhappy about this, though: More than 250,000 migrants have arrived this year alone in Yuma, Arizona – population ~100,000. It’s easily possible that 100,000 of those have gone off the radar on their own, of course, so Federal authorities no longer need worry about them. It’s a solution of sorts.
Yuma’s job is to take care of Biden’s future voters. Martha’s Vineyard’s job is to donate to Democrat election campaigns. Don’t mix them up.
So, the President’s anger is unappeased. Somebody messed with his migrants.
Biden condemns Republicans for using migrants as ‘props’
“Republicans are playing politics with human beings, using them as props. What they’re doing is simply wrong, it’s un-American, it’s reckless,” Biden said Thursday evening.
“And we have a process in place to manage migrants at the border. We’re working to make sure it’s safe and orderly and humane,” Biden continued. “Republican officials should not interfere with that process by waging these political stunts.”
Never mind that Biden’s open border policy is using migrants as props to force passage of some form of amnesty, while cynically salivating over the prospect of millions of new Democrat voters and denying there is any crisis in Yuma, for example.
Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott are the ones playing politics.
If there were evidence for the Democrat claim that Desantis’ and Abbott’s efforts are making the lives of the migrants worse, there might be room to discuss the practice. As it is, here’s how Biden’s “process” is working out (This isn’t a story the US corporate media wants to touch. We have to turn to the Brits.):
Apocalyptic El Paso: Shocking photos show 1,000 migrants sleeping on border city’s streets which now resemble ‘a third-world country’ with no sanitation
Sounds a lot like the paradise of downtown San Francisco and the streets of Los Angeles. Except Frisco and LA asked for it.
