Mitch McConnell: Expect Some 18,000 Illegal Immigrants Trying to Breach Our Mexican Border Each and Every Day

border

WASHINGTON, DC, Apr 28 — They don’t get it. We, the people, aren’t complaining simply because illegal immigrants seek to cross the Mexican border. No, the problem is that there are too many migrants – including drug dealers – and more and more of them have essentially been encouraged to breach the barrier by President Biden and his administration. The Border Patrol is overwhelmed. So, why does the administration continue to come up with ways to make it easier for them to enter the country?

Historian Victor Davis Hanson says that when Mr. Biden took office, “The once secure border of 2020 vanished. More than 2 million people have crossed the southern border illegally in the past 12 months.  Millions more are on the way…The Biden administration unilaterally and simply destroyed existing immigration law.”

Republicans find the increasing numbers of undocumented migrants at our southern border “worrisome,” while Democrats apparently have no worries. A recent Gallup poll found that 68% of Republican respondents are “very worried,” and only 18% of Democrats agreed. 

Yet, mainstream Democrats in Congress – namely, Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly [D-AZ], Joe Manchin [D-WV], and Jon Tester [D-MT] – admit that President Biden and their progressive colleagues have got it wrong. In fact, they’ve joined with Republican lawmakers in proposing legislation that would prevent the president from making matters worse at the border by doing away with the Trump-era immigration rule, Title 42, a policy initiative that helps the Border Patrol manage illegals seeking to enter the country. The measure would keep Title 42 in place until two months after the COVID pandemic is no longer declared a national emergency. It would also require the administration to submit an actionable plan to deal with the increase of illegal immigrants that is expected.

According to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, “The Biden Administration is on track for another record-shattering year on our southern border — in all the wrong ways. The Department of Homeland Security is reportedly preparing for up to 18,000 attempted border crossings per day. President Biden’s border crisis is a symptom of the modern Democratic Party’s inability to support any remotely reasonable policy of border enforcement. Thus far, the Biden Administration has kept the chaos somewhat in check by leaning on emergency authorities specific to the COVID pandemic. To be clear, even with these Title 42 authorities in place, our border’s still been in crisis. Last month was the worst February in more than 20 years. We just saw the worst 12-month period for illegal crossings since at least 1960. This is with Title 42 in place. Just imagine if President Biden kills it.”

In Congressional committee hearings this week, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted that by scrapping Title 42, “there is no question if we encounter 18,000 people in a single day that will seriously strain our capabilities.” And Congressman Chuck Fleischmann [R-TN] pointed out that the loss of the Title 42 rule would mean that the illegals would not be sent back from whence they came. He noted that “Many migrants our agents encounter are given a notice to appear and sent on their way into the interior of the United States to await a court date, often years into the future. It only encourages more people to come.”

To say that the president’s border surge makes life difficult for all Americans – particularly for those living close to the border – is an understatement, at best. It has a deadly consequence, as well. The Mexican cartels are using the surge to peddle opioids, fentanyl in particular, throughout the U.S. Last year some 100,000 Americans died of drug overdoses as a result. The Biden administration has apparently turned a blind eye toward this murderous side effect, forcing the Republican governors of 26 states to do what the federal government should be doing by tasking their law enforcement to focus on the threat. They formed a Border Strike Force to “disrupt and dismantle transnational criminal organizations…The porousness of the Southern Border is an open door to transnational criminal organizations that use it to traffic drugs that feed the addiction epidemic throughout the United States.”

In a Memorandum of Understanding, the American Governors’ Border Strike Force stated that in the absence of federal leadership, it was “partnering across state lines…to target cartels and criminal networks financially and operationally.”

The citizens of this country could stop illegal immigrants from entering the USA if we wanted too.
All we would have to do is meet the illegals at the border and exercise our second amendment rights with a show of force!

The only thing that could, and would, fix this invasion would be to send every single illegal to DC. When that city falls, move them into the homes of those politicians who support this army..

McConnell, as usual, is paying lip service to a serious problem. We know illegal immigration is and will be a problem. We don’t need sound bytes, we need action.

Headline – McConnell says “…. 18,000 Trying to Breach Our Mexican Border Each and Every Day”. Where has this guy been for the last 15 months? There’s no “trying” to it. And what is he doing about it? Right now, there are two Republican Senators (Tillis / Cornyn), working with Democrats, trying to revise and “soften” immigration policies. Our government is not only dysfunctional, but it is also PURPOSLY disassembling our American culture. No one can make this many mistakes accidentally.

Your comment’s soooo SPOT ON! If they get those policies altered to benefit the border raiders then our nation’s most definitely not going to be a sovereign nation… IMHO!

Everything we see is strategically planned. Biden has talked about the one world government. That can’t take place with America and it’s constitution in place that gives individual rights. The Marxist democrats WANT America to fail.

So many problems all at once. It appears to be the Cloward–Piven strategy to overwhelm our system and destroy it. Biden is proud to be promoting, aiding and abetting in the largest crime wave to ever be seen in this country. Millions of immigration law violations, human trafficking, forcing law enforcement officers to NOT enforce the law, etcetera.
And now the president and his minions have announced the creation of two agencies to put out propaganda, to push censorship and to punish people with dissenting opinions from the official propaganda, in both the DOD and in Homeland Security. This is insane. And the idea that they would go on national TV and brag about doing so is seriously scary.

Note that if any conservative, law abiding citizen would engage in the activities ordered and executed by this federal administration, those citizens would quickly be arrested, prosecuted and incarcerated for human trafficking. Yet the Biden administration orders the Border Patrol to do this. The administration is proud to be breaking our laws and ignoring the constitution. They think that once they get enough illegal aliens into our country that they can use them as Democrat supporters and Democrat voters, thus making the Democrats a permanent ruling class. Therefore, it will be impossible to punish them for their crimes.
Also note that this eleven million number of illegal aliens supposedly in our country has been used since Regan was president. Simple extrapolation would indicate that the actual number is somewhere between thirty and fifty million by now. That is way more than enough to swing elections. Think about it.

The more people that flood our country, the more dependence will be placed on the “government” when everything falls apart. People will do anything or give up anything for food and “security”. We’ve already seen the trend with Covid, it won’t stop there.

Mayorkas… the worthless border “czar”?! Shut down that border and gather up as many illegals as we can in our country and send them back to their cartel land.

This is the year 2022 …. not 1822. Vigorus Immigration is NOT a building block for the growth of this Nation and its security in the World’s Nation stage. It is shameful, pitiful, and un-American for the Biden administration to weaken the quality of life, liberty, and the pursuit of freedom by loading up on a high percentage of criminals, indigents, spies, diseased, and other undesirables. BUILD THE WALL … it is the only really effective way to control this problem. Mexico isn’t going to do more than give lip service to assisting in quelling the “tide.” Maybe a treaty with Panama to stop at least part of the tide would help, but I bet it you stop it as the Tex-Mex border, Mexico will get more involved in helping stem the tide.

The WALL should have been built over 50 years ago. The SOCIALIST Democrats had control of Congress then and still did NOTHING but let ILLEGAL ALIENS keep coming in.
Each day DICTATOR Beijing biden commits ESPIONAGE and TREASON by keep letting in ILLEGAL ALIENS that are VIRUS, DISEASED INFESTED TERRORIST INCLUDING MS-13 GANG MEMBERS TO KILL AMERICANS.
WE WERE PROTECTED UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP.

Ask a doctor, your favorite virologist or a medical professor how many diseases are coming across the border. We are seeing cases of dozens of diseases that were eliminated here years ago, and diseases that have never been seen here before. As bad as that is, it is a tiny part of the problems that Biden and his minions are aiding and abetting as a flood across our border. Then, of course, is the effect that providing billions of dollars to the Mexican drug cartels will cause.

Mitch McConnell doesn’t care. He’s a RINO and he helped the dems time and time again to get what they wanted. So he should either go to the other side, or retire and move to China with his wife.

It’s been an ongoing problem for longer than I can remember. The democrats act like they worry about the living conditions of the other nations – but the only thing they worry about is how much money they will get. Too bad they don’t worry a little about the millions of babies they are willing to murder in order for women to have “equal rights”. They really care about women too, that’s why they let flower boys play sports against women. I call people like that hypocrites.

As I am at 88 a health professional and served my country as a medic in the Army lo these many years ago, I see that the Constitution is not taught in schools and 90% of the population does not
even know what the Dems are capable of. Doomed is even understating what will happen if the
voting is not totally overseen by the responsible citizens. Only God can help us.
