Biden’s Welcome Program for Illegals

Biden laughing

Millions of Americans are paying taxes this week. What worsens the pain is to see President Joe Biden spending our tax money on hotel stays, debit cards and cellphones for migrants illegally crossing the southern border.

Biden is rolling out the welcome mat.

Illegal border crossers will no longer be treated like criminals but more like customers. The president’s fiscal budget, presented March 28, cuts funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement by 8% despite an expected surge in migrants and reduces detention beds. Meanwhile, Biden’s increasing funding for a speedier service for migrants entering the country illegally, with more flights and ground transportation. Kind of like a travel agency.

As of late May, Customs and Border Protection officials will not be able to send back migrants using Title 42, a legal tool devised to limit immigration during COVID-19. Illegal immigration is predicted to surge to 18,000 people a day. Biden isn’t planning to deter it, only to accommodate it.

There will be no punishment for sneaking into the country, or what the White House prefers to call “irregular” immigration.

Migrants won’t be detained in crowded facilities, sleeping under metallic sheets. These facilities are being phased out.

After crossing and being apprehended, migrants are fingerprinted and handed an Order of Release and Recognizance, granting them a legal right to travel in the U.S., so long as they report to an ICE officer when they reach their destination.

Then they’re welcomed by Catholic Charities or other nonprofits, who help with travel instructions. Some are taken directly to bus stations or airports. But many others are checked into hotels for one or two days of R&R before continuing to the destination of their choice. Call it the Catch and Concierge experience.

Over the last year, the Biden administration has contracted hotel space in Scottsdale, Arizona, El Paso, Texas, and other sites to house migrants while they’re provided COVID screening, medical care, hot meals and a chance to shower and rest. What’s next? Mints on the pillow?

Hotels were used in the past to house migrants but only because detention facilities were full, not because they were replacing them.

California’s health department is also renting hotels in San Diego, including a Four Points Sheraton and a Ramada Inn, where Catholic Charities Diocese of San Diego and Jewish Family Service of San Diego provide services to migrants.

Don’t think because these charities are helping that taxpayers are off the hook.  The federal government is Catholic Charities’ largest source of funds, and Jewish Family Service gets its money largely from Catholic Charities. Illegal immigration is funded in a tangled maze that invariably leads back to U.S. taxpayers.

That’s who’s paying for the smartphones and tablets for migrants — the latest perk. White House press secretary Jen Psaki claims the devices will make it easier to track migrants. Border officials, according to the Los Angeles Times, insist the smartphones are for safer travel, not tracking. Migrants can simply throw the device away.

Previous administrations used ankle bracelets, but immigration advocates complained they were uncomfortable and humiliating, so the Biden administration discontinued them.

Even before migrants cross the border, the International Organization for Migration, a part of the United Nations, distributes plastic debit cards worth about $400 to help tide over migrants waiting to enter. Where does IOM get its money? Partly from America, of course. Twelve House Republicans introduced the “No Tax Dollars for the Immigration Invasion Act” to bar funding these cash giveaways.

With Biden welcoming migrants crossing illegally and helping them settle wherever in the U.S. they choose, every state becomes a border state. Taxpayers in all 50 states are clobbered with the cost of providing housing, emergency medical care and public schooling. Dems in New York, who have no mercy on taxpayers, are even extending Medicaid to migrants 65 and over illegally in the U.S.

Americans are generous people, but they have to provide for their own kids and neighbors first. Without warning, Biden is flying migrants into communities under the cover of night and expecting them to be cared for. It’s nothing short of an ambush.

Woe to you, hypocrites!! Does this money that provides for the illegal immigrants also come out of Mr Biden’s, Mrs Pelosi, Mr McConnell, Mr Schumer et al congress and senators salary? Or are they exempt? Are they taxpayers too? Or are they exempt from that too?

Impeach Biden for failing to follow his constitutional oath of office and protect our nation from the invasion. Where is aunt Nancy for a genuine impeachment when we need her? Isn’t it “funny” (tragic) how the narrative changes when it does or doesn’t fit their narrative? Hypocrites!

That’s food for thought … a law punishing organizations that physically support illegal immigrants AND do not report the existence, identity and presence of such immigrants to authorities. IT IS NOT THE PRE-1900 HISTORICAL ERA AS PERTAINS TO THE WELCOME OR ACCOMIDATING ABILITY of this Nation to seek and desire immigrants to grow the Nation.

Think about this for a couple of minutes: “President Joe Biden, who is controlled by the swamp, is spending our tax money on hotel stays, debit cards, cellphones and cellphone air time for migrants illegally crossing American borders.”Now think about this: How many homeless Americans and American Veterans, who are down on their luck and may be on the streets as well. They have no roof over their heads, without a bed to sleep on, a credit card to buy basic necessities and food; or a cellphone to help them reconnect with family or friends to find new purpose!Our own government has declared war on us, Americans! This is not about race, religon, gender or equality. Think about what the Swamp is doing everyday to sink America and remove it as a nation and a world power. These people are hoping to build a new traitorous dictatorship on American soil. If you voted for NMP Biden or any government represenative who is supporting this DNC and one world narrative. I hope you have seen it for what it is and remember who supported them come November!

The leftist communist administration and the elites stole our country from all true American loving citizens, the latino community overwhelmingly supported president TRUMP in our last stolen election, now with our hard earned TAX DOLLARS the corrupt leftist government will feed, clothe , provide travel, healthcare, phones, and weekly allowances for any and everything else they want or need, they have it all figured out. And this Marxist regime couldn’t care less about the constitution or our American citizens. The ends justify the means at any and all costs ( mainly the cost of our freedoms and liberties as proud Americans)

These people are mostly young men, all military age. I suggest we immediately put them in the army. Then they will be working and not a tax burden.

Already too many foreigners in our military that don’t have any allegiance to our country. They don’t join to serve our country anymore. The best way to keep them from becoming a tax burden is to keep them out along with our politicians.

Bingo! The best solution is to provide an incentive for illegals to stop coming here. That can be done multiple ways. Some more direct than others.

Yes, part of the “incentive” is called a wall. Then, give them all exactly what we would get from their own country if we were to go there.

They would still be a tax burden since their paycheck would be from the government (ie, the tax payer). The Roman army did not have enough men to adequately man a legion. Most of a legion would be recruited from the area that the legion was posted. The new recruits would take an oath of allegiance and be awarded Roman citizenship much like what will happening with our nation’s illegal immigrant problem. This was part of the problem that led to the fall of the western Roman empire because the majority of the new recruits turned against their Roman masters. Translate this situation to what happened to the western Roman empire and one can see the upcoming foreseeable downfall of our nation due to illegal immigration, unstainable debt, bad laws and poor leadership. This is what happens to a nation that puts man’s law above God’s law.

Oh gee, just what we need. Completely illiterate young men with no skills and a complete lack of motivation to do anything except take advantage of others weaker than themselves. Sure hand them a automatic rifle and a unform and expect them to defend our nation from enemies either foreign or domestic. What could possibly go wrong with that scenario? Hint: they turn their newly acquired weapons on the American soldiers training them, at the first opportunity, with lethal results.

While it is good to offer suggestions, it would be nice to first think through how things would actually play out. These are NOT hard working, well adjusted young men with a deep desire to be productive citizens. These are people, that at best are only semi-literate, or completely uneducated looking for a hand-out and to be taken care of by somebody else for life. The U.S. military is NOT a dumping ground for the dregs of society from every third-world country on the planet. Because that is who is streaming across our southern boarder each and every day.

If the federal government won’t stop illegal immigration, then Governor Greg Abbot should call out for volunteers from our citizens to guard our borders!
Not only would this slow or probably stop illegal crossing of our borders, it would surely get the federal governments and commie Joe’s attention in a hurry!

Unfortunately, the ranchers of West Texas are on 24-hour call and are exhausted. The Border Patrol is catching men and sending them back on almost a daily basis, we have it on our CBS-7 news station. We had an in-depth series on the ranchers and their wives and the fences that were dug up and used for fires. Bills have been turned into the federal government for loss of property. Men have broken into rancher’s houses while women have been alone in the houses. Fortunately, the wives or daughters had guns and shot them off. None of the aliens were killed, but they did run off. Cattle have also been killed by them. Parts of them were eaten.

You’re halfway there to arriving at the necessary citizen action necessary to stop the massive in-flows of illegals into this country. So close, yet so far. Think on it a bit and I’m sure you’ll see what is missing from your proposal.

DC better be 110% welcoming and accommodating as many illegals as show up. Set the example you think the rest of America should. Demonstrate with open arms and give them everything free they could ever dream of. Make life miserable for everyone who lives there including all of Congress, the SC, the ABC agency’s and everyone who works there. Feckless dolts.

As a former Director of Human Resources, I worked with organizations who assisted actual Refugees: One who flees, especially to another country, seeking refuge from war, political oppression, religious persecution, or a natural disaster.

Now theses organizations are assisting all illegals with no sense of right or wrong. And also handing the border over to the Cartels who manage human trafficking and illegal drugs coming across the Mexico border into the United States.

These organizations are the IRC, Catholic Social Services, Lutheran Social Services, etc. They are not helping the citizens who live legally in the United States of America and those who need actual help from government programs. They are repurposing these programs from citizens to people breaking the law. They are AFFECTING OUR Security, Economy and health systems. ($400 x 600,000 = $240,000,000.00) And hundreds of thousand more!

This is just wrong in so many levels!

All these religious groups are being duped into supporting illegal activity in the name of being so-called compassionate. This is what is wrong with so many organized religions in this country and around the world these days. They are ALL so self-absorbed to protect their tax-exempt status and other governmental perks, that they have lost sight of what their faith is actually supposed to be about. Religion is NOT supposed to be about how to aid in the breaking of existing governmental laws to ensure the government maintains your preferential tax treatments.

I know they’re happening here and there…now and then. I stopped by one in SC last year that was well attended. But maybe AMAC, with its 2.3 million members, could list public protests and rallies—or stage a few—like the ones I used to attend outside Washington, D.C. when mentioned by local talk show hosts, like Chris Plante at WMAL.

It is absolutely amazing that our fearless leader can operate the largest criminal enterprise on the planet, while simultaneously being unable to put together a coherent sentence without a teleprompter. He is using the IRS to harvest our hard earned dollars, paying approximately ten thousand invading criminals a day to cross the border and begin to plunder our country, sending billions of dollars to Iran to build nuclear weapons and missiles with which they can send them here, buy millions of barrels of oil from Russia while signing executive orders that make it more difficult and more expensive for U.S. oil companies, campaigning to minimize the incarceration of violent criminals in our country, campaigning to indoctrinate our children with racism and sexual perversion… I’d go on but it pains me to think about all the stuff big Joe and his crew are doing.
