Biden’s Border Problems Keep Getting Worse

border

America has had an illegal immigration problem for decades, but President Trump showed how stronger laws and simply enforcing the laws we already have on the books can help combat illegal immigration. Over many years, politicians from both sides of the aisle have vowed to solve this problem through various means and actions, but the problem of illegal land border crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border has reached a crescendo under President Biden. In the 2021 calendar year, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) reported over 2 million encounters along the southwest land border.

The number of southwest U.S. land border encounters in April beat the previous record of 222,144 encounters reported the month prior, March 2022  (the most ever recorded!).

These numbers are so outrageous that they are hard to conceptualize and are becoming impossible to justify. In fact, President Biden isn’t even addressing the issue publicly. He’s ignoring the problem outright while trying to head off even larger issues like inflation, which is surging at its highest rate in four decades.

Biden is in a  political and legal pickle on immigration – a lawless mess of his own creation. On the one hand, his immigration policies have failed miserably, and stopping the border security needed, including “the wall,” essentially constitutes an open invitation by him and his administration to largely “unrestricted illegal alien entry” and the surreptitious transporting them to communities throughout the United States. In his first year in office as President, more people have illegally crossed into the U.S. than ever before in our history.

In this connection, US immigration law (8 USC 1324(a) “Criminal penalties”) makes it a criminal felony to encourage or induce an alien (and for “each alien”) to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry or residence is or will be in violation of the law.  Indeed, Biden’s decisions and his immigration directives and actions ignore his responsibilities under the Constitution. Article II, section 3, defines the roles and responsibilities of the President and says in part, “…he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…” Furthermore, such actions by Biden and his administration also ignore the Presidential Oath as set forth in the Constitution and which he took, promising “I will faithfully execute the Office of the President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Even still, Biden faces constant pressure from his own party to ease immigration laws further. Many have pressured him to eliminate Title 42, a Trump-era health measure that authorizes the U.S. government to expel illegal migrants to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  As such, CBP has been in a mad dash to prepare for a massive influx of illegal migrant crossings. Video reports from Fox News showed thousands of people crossing at a single location. “This is a new tent city compound that border patrol started building here in Eagle Pass [Texas] in anticipation of that surge with Title 42 [expected to end],” correspondent Bill Meligun said.

Blue state Democratic Senators in tough reelection battles, such as Sens. Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Mark Kelly (D-AZ), and Catherine Cortez Mastro (D-NV), have all publicly questioned Biden’s approach. Even moderate Democrat Senators Chris Coons (D-DE), a top Biden ally, and Senate Homeland Security Chairman Gary Peters (D-MI) have spoken up regarding Biden’s efforts to repeal Title 42.

“Unless we have a well-thought-out plan, I think it is something that should be revisited and perhaps delayed. I’m going to defer judgment on that until I give the [Biden] administration the opportunity to fully articulate what that plan is,” Peters said. “The administration really needs to step up here, develop a plan and get more resources to the southern border,” Hassan told a New Hampshire television station, while visiting Arizona.

A Morning Consult-POLITICO poll from last month showed that 56% of U.S. voters opposed the President’s plan to end Title 42, calling it “Biden’s most unpopular move yet.”

On May 20th, a federal judge struck down President Biden’s attempt to end Title 42. Robert R. Summerhays, a Louisiana judge appointed by President Trump ruled that Biden violated the administrative procedures act in announcing in April the he planned to rescind the Title 42 order. The judge noted that this would cause “irreparable harm” as states would be footing the bill for migrants’ health needs. Frankly, President Biden is lucky that the judge smacked down his poor policy decision, much like what happened when he attempted to rescind President Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy. Title 42 is likely to be tied up in litigation in the coming months.

Even with these measures still in place, the administration is willingly turning a blind eye to a huge problem on the southern border and the law which it supposed to enforce. President Biden’s border problem is one of his own creation and even his own party is being forced to question his policy decisions. Republicans are also fairly questioning his motives and the administration’s willful abatement of responsibility for this massive problem. Polls show that voters, while being chiefly concerned with inflation and the economy, are also intensely concerned with the crisis on our southern border. It’s past time for President Biden to wake up and follow the law, and to listen to the American people — as well as reasonable voices within Biden’s own party — who are urging him to stop making America’s surging illegal immigration problem even worse.

Our election was stolen.
2000 Mules!
‘Burden’ is the puppet leader chosen by Globalists because of his declining mental state, and the FACT that he is easily blackmailed due to the massive corruption his entire family is involved in. The one or one’s behind the scenes have no committment to this country or her people or our Constitution, they didn’t swear an oath to abide by before the American people, they chose empty headed Joe to take that ‘fall.’ So it allows THEM to rule with an iron fist. And that’s why they ignore our laws and statutes, and couldn’t care less about all U.S. Citizens.
This country is facing its largest spiritual battle of all time. The Church is in disarray, and we are in the midst of the ‘great falling away’ spoken of in the Living Word of God. Christian’s have become lax in their faith, partly due to our fleshly ability to find fault in anyone else before we look in the mirror. Christ taught us about ‘self righteousness and pride.’ His word tells us He hates pride and high looks. Everything that is happening right now is foretold in the Holy Bible. As Christian’s, we should NOT be surprised by any of it, other than it is happening in our current time here on Earth. Many of us never dreamed this would be going on in our time. We know God Almighty is and has always been in control of everything going on, so we must get our priorities straight, check ‘ourselves’…often, and ask our merciful God for forgiveness for not completely trusting in Him and remembering we need to see things in His ways and on His terms. We are, and can do nothing without Christ, and He’ll let us wallow in anger and self pity, and pointing fingers in the wrong direction until we’re ready to see the real truth; The truth that,
‘A nation who forgets their God will fall.’
But;
‘God is not slack in His promises’, as He said, and also said;

‘If my people who are called by my name will hear my voice, and will humble themselves, and turn and repent of their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and repent of the evil I planned against them and will cure their disease and heal their land.’

God’s word is true, purified seven times. When we are told to ‘pray without ceasing’, that is what we need to do.

There is a reason we are still here and He has not destroyed this country yet.
I pray God will bring this nation back to Him.

Pray for Israel.

How do we know that 2000 Mules is the whole truth? And then AG Bill Barr was wrong.

This will not stop until states start rounding up EVERY single illegal and busing them back to DC.
When DC has broken, send them to the politicians’ residences.

Biden does not know what to do as a political person and he is trying to play president and he has no ideal what to do or how to do it . He is thinking that the people coming across the border will help him and the democrat but it is turning on him and his people.

He knows exactly what he and his marxist democrat party pals are doing, they’re destroying America, and don’t care!
The arrogant traitors don’t even hide their intentions like they usually do, they just shove it down Citizens throats.
THROW THEM OUT

Most of the horde of illegals coming across the border are getting private lessons on basic English so that when they show up to the polls they don’t arouse as much attention as/while they are casting a faulty vote supplied by them by the DemocRat Party. They keep records as can be dug out of Newspaper obits and other sources so their vote can be cast by some illegals who will be educated on enough details so that the vote monitors don’t get too suspicious or in some cases so the monitors can cover for them at the voting site. Vote rigging will continue to get worse and worse unless some measures are adopted to cull out the illegal votes being furnished at the effort of the DemocRat Party.

Open borders are intentional to flood the country with millions more under-educated or completely illiterate illegals willing to vote Democrat in exchange for being taken care of for life. Why would Biden want to undermine one of the chief plans of the Democrats to undercut any expected Republican victories in the coming elections? Stop expecting Biden or the Democrats to enforce our nations’s immigration laws, when they have dozens of elections they need to steal this November and in 2024.
