Biden Is Oblivious To Immigration Crisis That Threatens Americas

The outcome will be dangerous for America.

During the 2020 campaign, candidate Joe Biden promised to undo President Donald Trump’s border security policies. He pledged to halt all deportations for 100 days and allow asylum seekers who enter the United States illegally to stay in this country while their cases are considered, rather than wait in Mexico, as Trump required.

It was obvious that Biden’s changes would attract a flood of new illegal immigrants. So during the transition, the president-elect tried to lower expectations. In late December, Biden told reporters he would not throw out the Trump program immediately, lest the United States “end up with 2 million people on our border.” Instead, Biden said, he would take some time to set up “guardrails” to make sure his new system would work smoothly.

But prospective illegal border crossers still got the message: come to the United States and you can stay. And now, under President Biden, they are not waiting for the new administration to set up “guardrails” to handle them. They are coming right now.

About 78,000 people tried to cross illegally into the U.S. in January, more than double the number from January 2020. In response, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki practically begged would-be illegal crossers not to stay away, but to wait a few weeks or months before illegally crossing. “Now is not the time to come, and the vast majority will be turned away,” Psaki said in early February. “Asylum processes at the border will not occur immediately; it will take time to implement.”

But the rush continues, with as many as 4,000 people trying each day to cross the border illegally. Many of them are children, and some of the youngest are not accompanied by an adult. The White House hasn’t figured out what to do with them. “The number of migrant kids is on pace to exceed the all-time record by 45 percent — and the administration doesn’t have enough beds,” Axios reported recently.

Amid it all, the administration has moved into full denial mode. This week Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insisted there is no crisis at the border. “The answer is no,” Mayorkas said at a White House briefing. “I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.”

A reporter challenged Mayorkas. “Respectfully, sir, though, one of your predecessors, Jeh Johnson [President Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary], said that 1,000 illegal border crossings a day constitutes a crisis, that it overwhelms the system. We’re at between three and four thousand now, according to CBP officials. So how is this not a crisis?”

There’s no crisis at the border, Mayorkas repeated. It’s a “challenge.” “I have explained that quite clearly,” he said. “We are challenged at the border. The men and women of the Department of Homeland Security are meeting that challenge.” The Biden administration, he said, is “building the capacity to … meet our humanitarian aspirations in execution of the president’s vision.”

In the meantime, Mayorkas, like Psaki before him, asked people currently in Mexico to wait a while before crossing illegally into the United States. “We are not saying, ‘Don’t come,'” Mayorkas said. “We are saying, ‘Don’t come now,’ because we will be able to deliver a safe and orderly process to them as quickly as possible.”

That statement essentially served as the Biden administration’s official welcome announcement to those seeking to enter the United States illegally. Don’t do it just now, the administration said, because we’re still getting everything ready to receive you into this country.

But they’re not waiting. And why should they? Many are being allowed to stay right now. The Washington Examiner’s Anna Giaritelli recently reported that the Border Patrol released 350 migrants onto the streets in Yuma, Arizona, over the last two weeks. From Giaritelli: “Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls [said] the city lacks the resources, manpower and money to help the hundreds of people who, because Border Patrol lacks space and transportation, cannot be held or taken to Phoenix, where Immigration and Customs Enforcement would normally detain families. Instead, the federal government is releasing families directly into his community, putting the town of 96,000 residents in a predicament.”

So the crisis is here, whether the Biden administration will admit it or not. And with Mayorkas’ message to potential illegal crossers — please come, just give us a little time to prepare — the flow is sure to increase.

  1. You people that work at wall-mart will not have a job soon your replacement are coming across the border and you can thank the democrats for that.

  2. This could be shortened to: Biden is oblivious–but it wouldn’t highlight the important Biden deficit of immigration policy and lead the reader to expect a long list of deficits.

  3. This Senile , Dementia ridden Clown is OBLIVIOUS of Everything around him. As long as Puppet Master keeps pulling the Strings he willing to DO or Say Anything right or Wrong. This DEPLORABLE S need to WAKE -UP and do the Peoples Work that they were sent to Washington to do They WORK 4 Us not Us Working for them. I know I hate it to but that’s
    the way they work. Maybe One Day the Republican Party and it’s RHINO’S will WAKE-UP
    and possibly do something about it.

  4. This is unbelievable. What are we going to do with all the drug runners, human traffickers, gangs like MS-13, and people just coming for the freebies the Democrats promised, free food, free housing, free education, welfare. We can’t afford to do that. The national debt right now is over $28 trillion. That’s $218,000 per household, $85,000 per person in debt. We are paying $800 million a day in interest on the debt. There is no way we can ever pay it off. They are getting ready to add another $1.7 trillion stimulus money to that debt, and most of it is wasted on programs that we shouldn’t have to spend a dime on, We don’t need another stimulus bill, we need to reopen everything, every where, let people go back to work, kids go back to school. 17 states now have decided to do this. Where are the rest? What are they waiting for. The country to go bankrupt? They way it is going, they won’t have to wait much longer.

    • Bus them to bidens house in Delaware. There are billboards around Wilmington stating they are so proud of Biden being from there. Let them deal with the mess he is making and ten lets see how much they like him.

  5. He knows exactly what he or whoever’s telling him what to do. Dems don’t care about anybody but themselves. That includes black, brown, Asian, white or any other nationality. When they pull the race card, you better watch out- they are getting ready to pull another Stunt.

  6. Dems are not oblivious. They’re following the plan set for them by their totalitarian globalist handlers.

  7. I’m not sure that this bunch of government idiots are smart enough to wipe their backside after taking a poop

  8. I say lets load them in train cars, trucks ,buses and ships and haul them all to Washington DC and put them inside Nancy’s wall. then she and Joe can feed them and take care of them and treat them for covid and police the felons and crooks.

  9. Oblivious? Yeah, a fair assessment, but in his defense, he’s just following orders from the “alternate” white house!

  10. Mayorkas you are the dumbest motherf___ker I ever read about. How can you look in your mirror in the morning and know you are lying to cover those traitors in office. You should go down there and babysit, even better give food and board at your house or in the WhiteHouse. They might eat the raw crap that is feed to our military. Karma is coming and I hope it blast you and the rest hard.

  11. The Jo”k”e Bi-dumb voting fraud, is one of the greatest Jo”k’es in our presidential elections history! When a box of rocks knows a Jo”k”e when it sees one, serious action should be demanded to stop the Jo”k”es inane objective! This Jo”k”e has serious consequences for our posterity, for a humane physical existence, that includes, also, the incremental destruction of our historical heritage of Americanism! If there is not a reawakening coming soon, patriotic or spiritual, or both, simultaneously, this planned and perpetrated Jo”k”e, will be ushering this country into a culture of political servitude of a disasterous Banana Republic status!

  12. Biden is not the problem. He is just a symptom of the root problem. That being the democrat party and the morons that vote for the “D. The only true statement ” pig lousy ever made…..” They will vote for a glass of water if you put a D by it.”. Couple that with the fact just a few democrats in Congress actually run things. The rest of them are nothing but seat warming bobble heads marching in lock step to the corrupt leaders. None have the guts to think for themselves and work for the greater good. Biden is nothing but a senile puppet being led around like a trained monkey. His wife is a disgusting woman allowing it to go on for her own gain. The media is equally disgusting for not challenging him and his handlers.

  13. Bus them to bidens house in Delaware. There are billboards around Wilmington stating they are so proud of Biden being from there. Let them deal with the mess he is making and ten lets see how much they like him.

  14. I have scoffed when theorists have stated BIDEN APPEARS TO BE COVERING HIS TRACKS by recruiting a foreign voting influence under the disguise of a massive immigration/amnesty policy. When Democrat led legislation was introduced to lower the voting age to 16, I became skeptical. Can Biden and the Democrats logically explain, WHY ARE THEY FOCUSING ON LOWERING THE VOTING AGE TO 16 INSTEAD OF GETTING 16 YEAR OLDS IN SCHOOL? What is the Democrat’s priorities and motives designed to accomplish?

  15. Buck Fiden! PUSH ILLEGAL ALIENS back over the border immediately, and throw Biden’s racist lying criminal treasonous enemy-ass over the wall with a catapult, closely followed by OBAMA’S muslimass.
