Biden immigration issues in the headlines as midterms loom


Biden reverses course and commits to closing certain gaps in border wall

The Daily Wire points to the sudden reversal in border policy which seems to be driven by concern over illegals and not the plight of Americans.

Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration will fill gaps in certain areas of former President Donald Trump’s border wall on the U.S. southern border as the illegal immigration crisis hits Washington, D.C., following a decision by Republican governors to transport thousands of illegal aliens to the nation’s capital.

The Associated Press noted that Biden “pledged during his campaign to cease all future wall construction,” but that his administration has now agreed to some additional barriers.

Controversial Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas authorized the project that will close four massive gaps in the border wall near Yuma, Arizona, which has been decimated by Biden’s border crisis.

The report suggested that part of the reason that Biden might have made closing those specific gaps a “priority” is because vulnerable Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) is up for re-election and the current political winds could make it very difficult for him to hold onto his seat.

The development comes after Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott effectively told Washington, D.C., Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser to pound sand Thursday afternoon after she complained that the border state was flooding her city with illegal aliens.

So, when it comes to the group most known for their short chants, Biden chooses a multi-step solution to a problem (for once)

When dealing with a group of socialists who seem to relate to the public through attacks of the public, Biden has chosen to protect the illegal aliens by closing the gaps in the wall. This won’t necessarily deter the illegals from entering, but will direct them away from the steep cliffs and deep rivers that they have crossed.

Still, for Americans, he does nothing. 

An injured migrant was rescued in the Arizona border mountains after he was abandoned by smugglers

Breitbart explains how an injured illegal alien was rescued in the Arizona border mountains after being abandoned by smugglers.

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents rescued a migrant with a leg injury. Human smugglers abandoned the migrant after his injury.

Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent John R. Modlin tweeted an image of a migrant with a severe leg injury being rescued by Border Patrol agents. The agents found the migrant after human smugglers left him to die following his leg injury.

The agents provided medical aid to the migrant and loaded him into a basked for transportation to a local hospital.

“Migrants face many dangers while crossing the border illegally. This includes being abandoned by the smuggler if they suffer an injury,” Chief Modlin warned.

Last month, agents carried out a similar rescue following a report of a migrant with a leg injury. Agents from the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station in southeast Arizona provided assistance to the Mexican national and transported the person to an awaiting helicopter crew, Breitbart Texas reported.

We hear of the 53 who died in a hot semi trailer, but we don’t hear of over 14,000 who were rescued

Joe Biden has time to tell us that the border agents who rode horses while stopping illegal aliens “will pay,” but he doesn’t acknowledge the over 14,000 illegals rescued by border agents.

Does he have selective attention?

Seventy-three illegal aliens found in homes operated in affluent areas of Washington, D.C.

The Daily Wire lays out how 73 illegal aliens were found in a stash house operated in an affluent Washington, D.C. neighborhood.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents found 73 illegal immigrants in homes believed to be operated by human smugglers in an affluent area of Washington D.C.

Sixty adults and 13 children were found living across six residential homes in D.C.’s northwest area, where the median home price is $750,000, NBC News reported. The news outlet reviewed internal documents from ICE, which didn’t list the addresses of the homes where the people were kept or how many were housed in a single home.

Illegal immigrants are regularly brought into the U.S. by human smugglers, who often charge thousands of dollars and are tied to drug cartels. These smugglers keep the immigrants hidden in places known as “stash houses,” NBC reported, usually in poor conditions without beds, running water, or air conditioning. The outlet noted that these homes aren’t usually so far from the U.S.-Mexico border.

Maybe they thought the distance from the border would shield them

Or maybe they thought that the stash house was close to where Biden was taking them, anyway.

Jean-Pierre felt differently when it was Trump building walls at the border

Townhall comments on how the opinion of current White House Press Secretary Jean-Pierre changed her opinion on the building of the wall.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended the Biden administration’s decision to fill in some gaps in the border wall system in the Yuma Sector amid the historic crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, but she said it was racist to build a border wall when Donald Trump was president.

Going as far back as 2016 and as recently as 2019, Jean-Pierre repeatedly decried Trump’s plan to build a wall along the southern border.

Odd how her opinion of building a wall seems to turn on a dime

It is exceptionally odd how her opinion of building a wall has turned on a dime, considering how Biden has done everything to shrink a dime into nothingness. What, pray-tell, can you buy for a dime? Can you get the old penny candy for a dime?

Being a sanctuary city isn’t all it’s cracked up to be

The Washington Examiner looks into Mayor Bowser’s request to have the National Guard pulled into Washington, D.C. to manage the illegal aliens bussed their due to Biden’s flooding the border.

Liberal sanctuary cities aren’t feeling so tolerant and accepting anymore as the influx of migrants being bused from Texas and Arizona are bringing the border crisis to their doors.

Washington D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser has requested the district’s National Guard to help handle the crisis. Just 4,000 migrants have caused a “humanitarian crisis” and pushed the city to its “tipping point.” It took just 2,800 migrants for New York City Mayor Eric Adams to complain that the city’s resources were being strained. While border towns in Texas and Arizona are watching millions of migrants cross the border, big liberal cities are being brought to their knees by just a few thousand.

But isn’t this exactly what these cities and their Democratic mayors have asked for? Adams lashed out at the “callousness” of Texas and Arizona for sending migrants to the Big Apple, but Adams has proudly supported New York’s sanctuary status. He seems very upset that migrants are willingly boarding buses to go to his sanctuary city. Are they no longer welcome there?

When liberalism costs nothing, liberalism is easy

Today it seems liberalism amounts to nothing but words. However, at the beginning of our nation, the liberal thought of supporting free speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of religion for all could have dire consequences. Some hung for it. Many others took bullets for it.

Too bad today’s liberals cannot see we seem to have come full circle.

Migrant arrivals in DC amp up pressure on Biden over border enforcement

The Washington Examiner points out how the illegal alien invasion of the nation’s capitol has brought more pressure on Biden to enforce the border.

A steady flow of migrants arriving by bus in Washington, D.C., is dialing up pressure on the Biden administration over its handling of southern border enforcement and the effect it is having on the nation.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) has called for the National Guard as it became clear that volunteer-led efforts to assist the migrants would be insufficient. More than 4,000 immigrants have arrived in Washington on more than 200 buses since April, and Bowser predicted the pace would quicken before calling for federal help.

“Tragically, many families arrive in Washington, DC with nowhere to go, or they remain in limbo seeking onward destinations across the United States,” Bowser wrote in her request. “With pledges from Texas and Arizona to continue these abhorrent operations indefinitely, the situation is dire, and we consider this a humanitarian crisis — one that could overwhelm our social support network without immediate and sustained federal intervention.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ) have been sending busloads of immigrants who volunteered for the journey into the nation’s capital for four months, seeking to familiarize Washington’s politicians and journalists with the impact of illegal migration and protesting the end of Title 42.

The number of Border Patrol encounters with illegal border crossers rose from 646,822 in fiscal year 2020 to 1,956,519 in 2021 and to 2,002,604 so far in 2022. The Biden administration has allowed at least 1.25 million to remain in the country.

Despite the rising numbers, the White House initially dismissed the busing program as a political ploy that would not take hold.

“I think it’s pretty clear this is a publicity stunt. [Abbott’s] own office admits that a migrant would need to voluntarily be transported and that he can’t compel them to,” then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on April 7. “Because again, enforcement of our country’s immigration laws lies with the federal government, not a state. … The governor of Texas or any state does not have the legal authority to compel anyone to get on a bus.”

But thousands of volunteers have done just that in the weeks since, with most arriving at Union Station, in view of the Capitol dome. Psaki’s replacement, Karine Jean-Pierre, said Thursday that Ducey and Abbott are “using” the migrants as a “political tool.” A reporter pressed the issue, asking whether the White House would prefer for migrants to stay in small towns in Texas and Arizona rather than come to big cities.

“That is not what I said,” she responded. “They said that they’re sending migrants to big cities on purpose, using them as a political point. I’m saying that what Republicans are doing is wrong and there is a process in place, and we should follow the process.”

Hopefully, conservatives will not ease up on the pressure

Now that some liberals have started to see the light, I hope that our conservative leaders will not declare a premature victory and ease up on the pressure.

Biden says the quiet part by admitting that handing out ID’s incentivizes illegal aliens to break our laws

Townhall discusses how the Biden admission that handing identification cards to illegal aliens will incentivize illegal aliens to break our law.

Republicans are sounding the alarm over President Joe Biden’s confirmed plans to give illegal migrants identification cards. 

The plan, which is being developed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), would allow illegals to have government issued ID’s in an effort to modernize paperwork. 

“Currently, noncitizens receive paper documents from the federal government about their immigration status. Paper documents pose a security risk, are easily lost, and degrade rapidly in real-world use, creating inefficiencies for the government and noncitizens. Moving to a secure card will save the agency millions, free up resources, and ensure information is quickly accessible to DHS officials while reducing the agency’s FOIA backlog,” a spokesperson told the Epoch Times. 

The cards will have a photograph, biographic identifiers and “cutting-edge security features to the mutual benefit of the government and noncitizens,” according to ICE.

However, several Republicans are voicing their concerns over the possibility, including the security and cost implications of the plan. 

letter from 16 Republicans addressed to the acting ICE Director details how they believe this is yet just another attempt to further allow illegal immigration into the U.S.

This admission needs to be preserved for an ad or ten million

This admission stands as an admission for all Democrats, since they all seem to be in on this. Therefore, this admission needs to go into the advertisements that bring down each and every Democrat currently in office.

An illegal alien drives 85 illegals to the Texas border to pay his own smuggling fee

Breitbart lays out the insane situation where an illegal alien smuggled 85 illegals to the Texas border in order to pay his own smuggling fee.

An illegal alien from Mexico pleaded guilty to trying to drive a tractor-trailer carrying 85 migrants through a Border Patrol checkpoint in Texas. The individuals inside suffered from suffocatingly high temperatures. The smuggling attempt came weeks before 53 migrants died in another trailer.

Recently, Jose Luis Vega Arzate, 31, went before U.S. Magistrate Judge Marina Garcia Marmolejo in Laredo where he pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to transport illegal aliens. Vega Arzate is from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, and was in the country illegally at the time of his arrest. The man told authorities that he was driving as a way to pay off his own smuggling fees.

The case began on May 10, when Vega Arzate drove a tractor-trailer with 85 migrants hidden inside to a Border Patrol checkpoint just north of Laredo, court documents revealed.

During their initial inspection agents noticed that Vega Arzate spoke in broken English, was sweating, and appeared nervous. The agents told him to move to a secondary area where they would scan the vehicle with an X-ray device, however, Vega Arzate had trouble shifting the truck’s gears to comply.

Authorities used a police dog who signaled to the trailer. Agents apprehended 85 migrants and provided first aid.

If this driver is being charged in the deaths of the 53 who died near San Antonio in a sweltering trailer, why wasn’t he held in jail the way Kyle Rittenhouse was held?

When Kyle Rittenhouse defended himself against a known pedophile who started beating him with a steel-wheeled skateboard and a felon with a handgun, he was kept in jail for 87 days before his lawyers finally were able to arrange bail (and, naturally, he was released once acquitted).

So why, please tell me, has a non-citizen offender become a super-citizen who gets released although charged in the deaths of 53? Why does a boy who was cleaning graffiti from schools, protecting a business from rioters, and protecting himself from attack get jailed and charged?

  1. Another super post, Mark1:1! I just wonder how in the heck Biden decided WHICH gaps to close? There are plenty, but as his spoxgirl, Karine Jean-Pierre so emphatically points out, they are “cleaning up the mess left by the previous administration”. And that it doesn’t violate Biden’s campaign promise to not build “one foot” of the wall. Something changed!

    1. I understand that the gaps he will close will prevent illegals from taking routes that involve cliffs and rivers with deep flowing waters. It seems that Biden has taken note of the great number of deaths via falls and drowning.

      Of course, he has said nothing of the over 14,000 rescues that ICE and others at the border have made. No Democrat would want to encourage someone who might be considered part of the law enforcement community.

      1. He cares about the votes from the far-left part of the Democrat party. Building this part of the wall may indicate support for Mark Kelly. He definitely cares about funds from China.

      1. The source of power Joe wants to replace oil/gas with doesn’t always work. When a high pressure system settles over the central plains, certain areas will experience stilled winds and the windmills won’t work. When the high pressure moves out and the clouds gather, the solar panels may not work. Furthermore, I have never seen a solar panel working at night.
        Methane, on the other hand, will produce power at any time of the day or night. Likewise, gasoline will provide power on a moment’s notice.
        The carbon levels the politicians have been ranting over have been much higher (during the Cretaceous Era). To my knowledge, there were no automobiles, factories, or other man-made/pollution-causing engines available during the Cretaceous Era. Therefore, the cause then (and possibly even now) might be outside of human control.
        The other thing the politicians rant on includes the temperature. If an area gets too hot: “Climate Change.” If we get record-breaking cold: “Climate Change.” If they don’t come up with a different mantra, people will start to see through this.
