Throughout the last presidential campaign there was a clear line drawn between candidates on the issue of border security, otherwise known as illegal immigration. Democrat Joe Biden wanted open borders, no border wall, and signaled to the world that illegal immigrants would be welcome in the US. President Donald Trump wanted to finish building the wall across the border with Mexico and continue to control illegal immigration. After the election, hoards of immigrants began moving toward the US border and it is reported that hundreds of thousands are crossing illegally as President Biden has done away with Trump’s border security with the stroke of a pen on an Executive Order. Stupidocrisy.
One of Biden’s new policies allow for authorities to detain illegal immigrants if they entered through the border after November 1. So Biden essentially invited illegal immigration before November in his campaign rhetoric, yet his new policies allow for the arrest of those crossing the border illegally after November 1. Too late. Risk of arrest or not, they came in droves anyway. Biden’s inept handling of the border has caused such an invasion of illegal immigrants that border security agents are overwhelmed. Moreover, Biden’s policies are causing negative consequences for the states, such as Texas, Florida, Arizona and Montana, who are taking actions into their own hands. Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody said that she is taking legal action against the Biden administration because of its “egregious” immigration regulations.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said, “Blindly releasing thousands of people, including convicted criminals and those who may be spreading COVID-19 into our state, is both unconscionable and a violation of federal law. This must be stopped now to avoid a dangerous humanitarian crisis for the immigrants and the people of Arizona.” Citing increased drug trafficking as a result of Biden’s policy change, Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen joined Brnovich in a lawsuit against the Biden Administration, filing for a preliminary injunction to block the regulations. Texas Governor Greg Abbott called in the National Guard to work with law enforcement to combat a 79.6% increase in illegal border crossings between October 2020 and January 2021. Abbott says Biden’s policies have created a humanitarian crisis and are endangering the lives of Texans.
The border is so overwhelmed, Biden has resorted to asking volunteers to help. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in an email to employees on March 8, “You have likely seen the news about the overwhelming numbers of migrants seeking access to this country along the Southwest Border…Today, I activated the Volunteer Force to support Customs and Border Protection as they face a surge in migration along the Southwest Border.” Meanwhile, when asked by reporters about the border crisis, Biden said there’s no crisis on the border and “we’ll be able to handle it.” As Jesus said in Matthew 15:14, “They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.” “Both,” in this case, is a misguided president and the country he misguides. Say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
