One of the most critically important responsibilities of the federal government is making sure we protect our sovereignty and that we are a secure nation kept safe from foreign invaders. Thus it is the duty of the executive branch to build a wall, enforce the law, and ship back illegal migrants. If he fails in this duty, guess what happens? You get invaded by people from foreign nations, including those who are members of deadly terrorist groups and dangerous cartels.
Add on to that the extra stress placed on our resources, which were already not enough to provide help for our own people. Then, of course, the spike in crime rates in border states and cities. It’s madness.
President Joe Biden has done absolutely nothing to stop the flow of thousands of illegal migrants from entering the country and gaining access to our interior. This is a huge problem. Why, then, hasn’t the man in charge taken action? Probably because this whole mess is part of the plan. Change up the demographics and add these illegal migrants to voter rolls, bus them to polls, and boom! Extra Democrat votes, especially in states without a voter ID law.
This is what prompted House Speaker Mike Johnson, a Louisiana Republican, to put together a delegation of individuals to go pay a visit to the border and see for themselves just how bad things really are.
Here’s more from Newsmax:
Johnson and his fellow conference members will visit Eagle Pass, Texas, and are expected to demand that Biden and the Democrats agree to strict new immigration policies to stop the flow of migrants into the country, The New York Times reported.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) statistics show that in November there were 242,418 migrant encounters. That’s the third-highest official number since the crisis began in late January 2021.
A CBP source told Newsmax on Monday that in December there were about 302,000 encounters at the southern border, surpassing the monthly record of 269,735 set in September.The lawmakers’ visit to the border comes as Senate Republicans and Democrats struggle to reach an agreement on an emergency spending bill that would send more than $50 billion in military assistance to Ukraine.
There have been quite a few House Republicans and some in the Senate who have called for major changes to be made concerning immigration in order to gain their support for the supplemental legislation.
“This situation requires significant policy changes and House Republicans will continue advocating for real solutions that actually secure our border,” Johnson said Tuesday in a post on X. A spokesperson who works for Johnson stated that the president has been “derelict in his duty to protect the border.”
Yes. Yes, he has.
“While the president requests more funds — not to stop illegal immigration — but to process more illegal immigrants through their ‘catch and release’ policy, he has undermined security at every turn,” spokesperson Raj Shah went on to say concerning the immigration work, Politico reported.
“From his decision to rescind the Remain in Mexico policy to the widespread abuse of the parole and asylum systems, there is a direct line between this administration’s reckless policies and the record 300,000 illegal immigrants encountered at the Southern border last month,” Shah continue.
Rather than acting like grown-ups and taking responsibility for the mess they’ve made, the folks in the White House are saying this whole thing is the fault of the Republican Party. The president and his people have stated that the GOP has continually shot down the supplemental funding package that has the funding in it to hire a new batch of border agents, immigration judges, and technology to fight back against the major flow of fentanyl.
“On Day One, President Biden proposed a comprehensive immigration reform plan and followed up by delivering record border security funding every single year of his term,” White House spokesperson Andrew Bates revealed in a recent a statement. “House Republicans have obstructed his reform proposal and consistently voted against his unprecedented border security funding year after year, hamstringing our border security in the name of extreme, partisan demands.”
