While other politicians are attempting to come up with realistic options to deal with the border crisis, our VP has elected to maintain her residency in fantasy land.
It was on the fateful day of March 24, 2021, when Joe Biden announced that Kamala Harris would become the White House’s leader in the effort to “stop what’s happening” at the United States border. A ‘border-czar,’ so to speak.
Sadly for Harris and the everybody else in the Biden regime, illegal immigration has only continued skyrocketing to record levels.
Why is that? Well, given recent remarks by Harris when discussing illegal immigration in an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” one could perhaps begin to deduce why America is seeing continuous increases of illegal crossings at its southern border. Show host Robert Costa pointed out that Texas Governor Greg Abbott authorized Texas National Guard, Texas Department Of Public Safety to arrest illegal aliens and return them to the border before asking Harris what her response would be to such a decree.
“I would suggest that so-called leaders focus on solutions, instead of attacks, if they really are concerned about a problem,” Harris answered, before explaining her view that illegal aliens should simply be handed the privilege of being a citizen of the United States in order to help solve the issue: “And that includes, on the issue of immigration, passing a pathway for citizenship, fixing what, in particular under the prior administration, was a badly broken system, so that we can have a humane and appropriate approach to this issue, including, of course, what we will continue to do in terms of prioritizing border security, but understanding we also need to create a pathway.”
“And that’s where I think everyone should be focused, if they’re actually concerned about solutions instead of flame-throwing.”
Many opponents of illegal immigration argue that such a plan of amnesty only encourage even more foreigners to illegally immigrate to the United States. In a statement against Congress approving a pathway to citizenship for the tens of millions of illegal aliens currently residing in America’s borders, the Heritage Foundation wrote, “any discussion of legislation to give green cards to those here illegally has consistently triggered increases in the number of migrants from Central America, Mexico and elsewhere, inducing them to journey to the United States in the hope of obtaining green cards. Illegal immigration at the border is rising again, as migrants seek to benefit from President Biden’s campaign promise of amnesty.”
Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order last week “authorizing and empowering the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety to apprehend illegal immigrants who illegally cross the border between ports of entry and return them to the border.”
The Texas governor claimed that the Biden administration’s plan to scrap Title 42 expulsions and the remain-in-Mexico policy has led to unprecedented levels of illegal crossings. Approximately 5,000 illegal migrants were reportedly apprehended over the July 4th weekend alone.
“While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border,” said Governor Abbott. “The cartels have become emboldened and enriched by President Biden’s open border policies, smuggling in record numbers of people, weapons, and deadly drugs like fentanyl.”
“I have authorized the Texas National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety to begin returning illegal immigrants to the border to stop this criminal enterprise endangering our communities. As the challenges on the border continue to increase, Texas will continue to take action to address those challenges caused by the Biden Administration.”
Big League Politics has covered United States issues at the border under the Biden administration extensively, including the decision by three Texas countries to declare the crisis of illegal immigration an emergency earlier this month:
