Let’s be very honest and clear about what is happening on the U. S./Mexico border and who is responsible. Since March, now well over 100,000 illegal immigrants have, in effect, been granted asylum who knows where in the United States, and this doesn’t count the thousands that simply “got away”; ICE has been precluded from seeking out any illegals from known locations; the Border Patrol has been ordered to stand down on border enforcement; and all obstructive walls and barriers under construction have been stopped. And now we are actually adding to the incentives for caravans to make the illegal entry by discussing reparations for families already here illegally who have been separated! As Sen. Tom Cotton has tweeted, this is like burglars in your home being paid when they are injured while breaking in. We are an open border country, and by definition there is no such thing.
And all the open border crowd in Washington now want to go after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on human rights grounds for seeking out and arresting illegals and other lawbreakers while the administration refuses to enforce the “remain in Mexico” policy for asylum seekers. Let’s tell the truth: There is absolutely nothing humane about aiding and abetting the caravans; in fact, it is cruel and immoral to do so. The caravans are not possible without the coyotes and drug cartels that organize, support, control, extort, and abuse them. And the worst parts of this crisis would have been easily avoided if the Biden administration, in its spite, wasn’t so obsessed with overturning a Trump border policy that was working.
When you combine this Biden-created humanitarian disaster and the impact it is having on the rule of law in border states with the confrontations at school board meetings over critical race theory and the pandemic vaccine mandate protests, we’re possibly looking at a very ugly outbreak of armed resistance in the country. I thought I would never see that. But David Brooks has put it best: “When people sense that those with cultural power are imposing ideologies on their own families, you can expect the reaction will be swift and fierce”.
