Biden Win Creates Massive Illegal Migrant Caravans Headed To U.S. Border

HOMELAND SECURITY With Joe Biden’s presidential win seemingly cemented by the Electoral College vote on Mondaythousands of migrants in Central America are launching new caravans to flood the U.S. border with Mexico. As I warned earlier, Biden’s statements promising amnesty to all illegal aliens residing in the U.S., and proposals for massive increases in the number of ‘refugees’ allowed in the country, have emboldened illegal crossers to surge into the U.S. prior to Biden’s inauguration.

This may be one of the first crises of the incoming administration and one partly of his own creation.

As American Military News (AMN) noted:

Jose Luis Gonzalez, coordinator of the Guatemala Red Jesuita con Migrantes, said President-elect Joe Biden’s immigration policy changes and the transition to a new administration encourage impoverished Central Americans to risk the long journey to the U.S. Biden has vowed to reverse a number of President Donald Trump’s migration policies, including illegal immigration deterrents like prolonged detention and family separation.

“When there is a change in government in the U.S. or Mexico, caravans start to move because they are testing the waters to see how authorities respond,” Gonzalez said, according to Bloomberg. And Biden’s statements have encouraged illegal migrants to go to the United States.

The Miami Herald has reported that the migrants aren’t only limited to residents of Central America, though. Thousands of Cuban migrants, including pregnant women and children, are hoping to join the caravans traveling from Guyana, Paraguay, and Chile.

But Biden seems to have placed himself in a corner with his premature pronouncement of radical changes to Trump’s immigration policy.

According to Bloomberg:

Biden’s advisers are hoping to shift away from Trump’s policies without signaling that the border has been flung open, according to people familiar with the planning. They know that swift, sweeping changes will spur more people to attempt the journey to the U.S.

Ironically, adds Bloomberg, Biden’s controversial nominee to lead the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, dealt with migrant surges during Barack Obama’s administration by “adding detention facilities for adults with children and increasing enforcement and deportations, drawing criticism from civil and immigration rights groups.”

These policies, of course, were very similar to President Trump’s.

Maybe Americans should start to move out of this country and leave no one here to support this illegal take over of our country…or we should ALL stop paying All taxes….Without our money, the illegal government will have no money to support the illegals that invade of country…take our jobs, eat our food…ect.

well…..they do. Actually one million immigrants…mostly black, brown or Asian, come to this country every year, though you would never know that according to the media. They are vetted, documented and registered. They have money and skills to start life in a new land, and are generally skilled professionals here to live, work or study. What the Dems want is non merit based immigrants coming in, and they are illegal cause they Cant cut the mustard. And they would quickly over run local services taking away much needed funding for our own citizens as well as immigrants already here.

We need to determine who is organizing, funding and supporting these caravans. These are not spontaneous.

If Twitter can ban Trump, can Facebook ban all the bleeding heart activists/smugglers/coyotes announcing the formation of new caravans marching to “paradise?”

This is no surprise. Biden will undo all the massive improvement that President Trump made in combatting illegal aliens entering and remaining in the Country and return us to the huge illegal alien problem we had during the Biden-Obama administration. Our citizens didn’t vote for this change, and that is why Democrats had to steal the election for Biden in order to reverse Trump policy.

The Biden administration will welcome an invading horde to our nation. Illegals will be treated BETTER than citizens! American citizens will have to wait behind illegals to get the woo flu vaccine!
Get used to it.

President Trump had the immigration problem under control finally and now dopey comes along and they just swarm right in.
