Migrants For Biden
If Central American migrants could vote in our elections, it would be a landslide for the open borders left. They are certainly voting with their feet, marching north in massive numbers.
Over the weekend, Fox News visited a migrant camp on the Mexican side of the border. They had to go Mexico because the Biden Administration is preventing the media from taking pictures at our border detention facilities.
Think about that for a moment. There's more freedom of the press on the Mexican side of the border than the American side!
But what Fox News found in Tijuana is deeply troubling. There are 1,000 migrants in just one of the camps. The flag flying over that camp is not the Mexican flag or even the American flag. No, it's a huge Biden 2020 flag, and many migrants are wearing clothing with Biden's campaign logo.
I am obviously pro-Trump. But what's happening on the southern border now should outrage every American taxpayer who cares about border security.
- The Biden Administration just signed an $86 million contract to house migrants in American hotels. The National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., had to sleep in parking garages or the hard floors of the U.S. Capitol!
- A whistleblower just reported that the Biden White House has ordered illegal immigrants to be released into the country without a court date to make their case that they qualify for entry into the country. This is Obama's failed catch-and-release policy on steroids.
- And the southern border is so overwhelmed that the Biden Administration is now flying illegal immigrants to border facilities along the Canadian border. States like New Hampshire, Montana and Minnesota will now be processing illegal immigrants from Mexico and Central America.
Again, we know that migrants in our detention facilities are testing positive for COVID-19 at twice the positivity rate in Texas and nearly three times the national average. (That's just the ones we catch and test.) And now we're flying them across the country.
Whenever it's pressed on the border crisis, the White House talks about its values and compassion. But how does any of this help the United States? We're still reeling from a deadly virus and an economic crisis! Where's the compassion for the American taxpayer?
The Biden/Harris White House is clearly out-of-step with the values of the American people. Polling shows that two-thirds of Americans support "blocking nearly all immigration" into the country during the pandemic.
That policy is supported by 49% of self-identified Democrats, 67% of Independents, 69% of self-identified Hispanics and 61% of all minorities.
This is public policy malfeasance at its worst.
President Trump responded to the worsening crisis on the southern border this weekend. In a statement, Trump said:
"We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot. Instead, in the span of a just few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster. . .
"They are causing death and human tragedy. In addition to the obvious, drugs are pouring into our country at record levels from the Southern Border, not to mention human and sex trafficking. This Administration's reckless policies are enabling and encouraging crimes against humanity."
The Crisis Is A Strategy
What we're witnessing at the border is a human tragedy. It is also a national security threat. But never forget what the main point is from the progressive point of view: Open borders is just another Democrat voter registration drive.
Maybe not next year, but down the road Democrats will guarantee that today's illegal immigrants become tomorrow's Democrat voters. That's why amnesty is such a high priority for the left. And House Democrats just passed two amnesty bills that are bigger than the 1986 amnesty.
In addition to reversing Trump's border security policies, Biden also reversed Trump's order that illegal immigrants should not be counted by the Census for purposes of congressional reapportionment.
Just to be clear, Biden ordered the Census to include illegal aliens for the purpose of determining how many seats in the House of Representatives and how many votes in the Electoral College each state gets.
Most Americans probably don't realize it, but illegal aliens do influence the size of state congressional delegations, even though they cannot or should not vote. Because the Census includes everyone and not just citizens, states with large concentrations of illegal immigrants get more votes in Congress than states that don't have large numbers of illegal immigrants. How is that fair?
If non-citizens were excluded from the reapportionment process, California would likely lose as many as five House seats and Electoral College votes. States like Indiana and Ohio would probably gain extra representation in the House and votes in the Electoral College.
But to the left immigration policy and border security aren't about what is best for America and our workers. It's all about political power, and what is best for the Democrat Party.
By the way, during the campaign Joe Biden said we should be taking in at least two million migrants. If he doesn't get control of the border, and he won't, he may well get two million migrants coming into the country.
America's Enemies & The Left
I want to revisit a theme I have mentioned before, something that the Wall Street Journal has also noticed, and that is America's enemies and the left increasingly use the same rhetoric to attack our country. In fact, it's increasingly difficult to tell them apart.
For example, during last week's summit in Alaska, the communist Chinese delegation accused the United States of "slaughtering" black Americans. Of course, President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris would want to set the record straight about what a good and decent country America is, right? WRONG!
They went to Atlanta Friday and engaged in raw race baiting on the issue of anti-Asian hate crimes. And they did it even though there is virtually no evidence of racial bias in the Atlanta murders.
Vice President Harris declared, "Racism is real in America and it has always been. Xenophobia is real in America and always has been. Sexism, too."
So the first female, bi-racial child of immigrant parents to become vice president of the United States is condemning our country as racist and xenophobic. That's rich!
But just hours after she used this narrative against us, an official communist Chinese media outlet was parroting the left's narrative that the murders of six Asian Americans in Atlanta is evidence of our "systemic racism."
Is anyone speaking up for America anymore?
Iran Targets America
There was breaking news yesterday that American intelligence intercepted communications in January indicating that elements of Iran's Revolutionary Guard were plotting to surveil and infiltrate Fort McNair in Washington, D.C., setting the stage to assassinate General Joseph Martin, the Army's vice chief of staff.
It's not clear from the press reports exactly when in January this intelligence was received. But we do know that this plot against America did nothing to dissuade Joe Biden and Kamala Harris from attempting to open negotiations with the Iranian regime for yet another nuclear bailout deal.
Moreover, what does that tell you about the assets the Iranians already have in the United States? As we have warned for years, Hezbollah has sleeper cells all over Latin America and in the U.S.
By the way, 11 Iranians were arrested last month in Arizona after illegally crossing the U.S. border.
