Biden’s Self-Inflicted, Totally Predictable – Border Crisis – More Children in Cages

Analysis – As expected, President Biden immediately began ending many of former President Trump’s stricter border security and immigration measures. And as expected, Biden’s actions have immediately re-created the border crisis Trump had been able to contain.

Thousands of unaccompanied children are again attempting to cross America’s southern border every month.

As I have written about earlier, Biden’s border crisis is just beginning. On Thursday, noted the New York Post in an Editorial, “a Customs and Border Protection staffer reportedly told top Biden administration officials to expect a peak of 13,000 unaccompanied minors to cross the border in May — the highest level ever.”

“We’re seeing the highest February numbers [that] we’ve ever seen in the history of the [Unaccompanied Alien Child] program,” a Department of Health and Human Services official told Axios.

The Post Editorial continues:

That’s right: a crisis worse than the one that brought the “kids in cages” backlash under President Donald Trump, and the earlier crises that prompted the building of those “cages” under President Barack Obama.

And it’s a crisis that we and others warned would come, as soon as President Biden started reversing every Trump border policy, even those clearly responsible for producing historic lows in illegal crossers, and returning to Obama policies that first triggered the unprecedented waves of children crossing without family.

Now Biden’s having to reopen shelters to house the kids until the feds can figure out what to do with them — shelters that his usual allies denounced as horrors in the Trump years. Yet, says White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, “There are very few good options here, and we chose the one we thought is best.”

As the Post correctly concludes: “That’s only because her boss [President Biden] already rejected the option of trying to ensure they don’t come here in the first place.”

What now, Mr. Biden? Is it ‘back to the future,’ with the same failed, ‘open border’ policies under Obama-Biden that created the same exact crises Trump had to fix?

Sadly, it appears we may already have the answer to these questions, in cages at the border.

Problem is they may still think it is better than back home.Not for you or I, but for them and many others like “them”. Even though they should get at the back of the line, are they here to work hard, or are they here for their free shet?

This makes is very clear to me that this man should never have been selected to be the next President of the United States. He must be treated as a person with severe mental disability, and should be removed as President of the USA.

First of all, it’s impossible for us to impeach ANY democrat while they have a majority in the House. If and when Biden steps down, Harris becomes president, but Pelosi DOES NOT become VP. The new president (Harris) gets to nominate someone for VP, and even if nominated, Pelosi wouldn’t want it because she has more power and influence as the House Speaker.

My thoughts are shared by 75 million other citizens. Ask any one of them and you will get the same thoughts, “THE COUNTRY IS GOING TO HELL”. JOBLESS BEING INCREASED, ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION BEING INCREASED, OTHER COUNTRIES SHELLING OUR OVERSEAS BARRACKS, CHILDREN NOT BEING EDUCATED, MONEY BEING SPENT ON OTHER COUNTRIES IN SPITE OF OUR OWN NEEDS., and much , much more to ponder.

Common sense policy dictates that our nation like any other nation should have closed borders with thorough I.D. checks at the gates. The best way to resolve these issues is to provide for legal immigration to those who follow the legal pathways to naturalized citizenship through the legal channels, where assimilation to U.S. citizenship is a stepped pathway through legal documentation. Although there have been some minor exceptions, the main thrust and majority law should aim to follow the rule of law as provided for in our founding documents (U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence). Open borders only creates more lawlessness and avenues for criminal activity and endangers the lives of ICE workers and the children of illegal immigrants who are caught up in the crossfire of attempting illegal crossings.

Every illegal gets a 1200 dollar debit card–a plane ticket to where ever they wish to go–new clothing etc. etc.. Some are even put up for weeks in luxury hotels. All of this generosity on the backs of our hard working taxpayers and most of these criminals will end up on the welfare rolls in perpetuity.

Why would you do that if you have a deal for a cut of all the money the Cartels are raking in at several thousand bucks per illegal to get them into the USA and those who do not have the funds are marked for working off their debt to the Cartels.. I am wondering if this has become a lucrative enterprise for the Biden Clan of Grifters.

Immigration policy is best handled with an eye on America First actions. This means putting the interests of U.S. taxpayers as a priority. The U.S. taxpayer should not be put in a position where open borders policies create a loophole to subsidize illegal entry into the U.S. at the expense of American taxpayers. Legal immigration through the rule of law has always been the proper protocol.

All illegals should be told to leave the USA who have been living on the welfare rolls and working off the books and to take their anchor babies with them.. If Americans even knew how many welfare checks go to lawyers who get them and the anchor baby onto welfare–The check goes to the lawyer and he cashes it and sends a check minus his fee to the Mother somewhere South of the Border for 18 years until the anchor baby turns 18.. At that point the Anchor Baby can legally enter the USA with his entire Tribe of relatives. It is called CHAIN MIGRATION and it needs to be STOPPED The USA is now the World’s Sucker for Illegal aliens. The Chinese were milking this bad legislation for years until they made it a big racket and Trump stopped it… It is probably begun again this Birth right Tourism under Biden has probably begun again.as he is on the payroll of the CCP through his bag man and money launderer and Son Hunter.

Sigh. You are right. I wish I knew why Trump didn’t use the insurrection act or his 2018 act to stop it before it was too late. The frustrating thing is we will probably never know. I read Patrick Byrne’s (the overstock.com guy) 6 chapter account of what happened. deepcapture.com. He was in the thick of it with Flynn, Powell and Giuliani. From his account it almost happened but Trump’s advisors talked him out of it. I pray there is enough left of the country to salvage in 4 years.

I just love how people love to sit back, down a beer while whining and moaning over the crap going on today!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

With many of these Federal government phone numbers one gets a live person/ minion underling who sounds too bored to care what one is saying. With some, NO ONE answers and there isn’t even a voice mail box in which to record a message!
One has a better chance at the state level, but even some of them sound bored. I did get one young lady at the state level who was friendly and willing to listen. I felt confident SHE would pass on my message, but not so the others I spoke to.

The Supreme Court was the final legal battle to overturn what THEY KNEW was a rigged election. Forget the wishful thinking and illusion that we can evict Kamala and Joe. So far we (myself included) are just complaining but accepting the destruction of our country. We put up with Executive Orders, Mask wearing, church/school closings for a year and still pay teachers. Prisoners and illegals being treated better than tax paying citizens. Repub’s rubber stamping puppet Joe’s appointees. Nat’l Guards and fencing around the capitol. We either fight or surrender like citizens did in Venezuela, Hong Kong, Cuba, Russia.
