New York Mayor Eric Adams continues to rail on about the mess he thinks Texas Governor Greg Abbott has visited on his city with the busing of illegal immigrants, but I hear nothing from him about the main culprit, which is the total abdication of duty to protect our borders on the part of the Biden administration. Meanwhile, Biden refuses to fix asylum law and insists in using the scapegoat response of the need for “comprehensive immigration reform”, which anyone but a fool knows can’t happen as long as the U. S. – Mexico border is wide open. We have come to talk about impeachment at every turn; it seems to me that the grounds for such a charge in this crisis are overwhelming.
Meanwhile, the longer this crisis persists the more likely the response by the American people, prompted by populist anti-immigration movements, will be to drastically reduce legal immigration, which would be a huge mistake for the country. A few months ago, in an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal by Daniel Henninger, he makes a prediction: “If the U. S. fails to find its way to a new system for legal immigrants, if it consciously chooses to flatline its human capital, America’s grandchildren today will grow to old age in a world where they are No. 3, behind China and India, whose populations will overwhelm, outsmart and outbuild us. Ergo, four more years of either Joe Biden’s open-river immigration or more of the Trump wall will squander U. S. development.”
Think about it.
