Leftist immigration policy has predictably dire border consequences
VP Kamala Harris finally took a sanitized trip to El Paso on Friday, three months after she was named the border czarina by Pres. Joe Biden, and facing mounting pressure for not attending to business, to which she cackled in response. She briefly visited an ICE facility, staying out of the sun and avoiding the harsh reality of a steady stream of illegal aliens crossing into the United States. A recent headline following her trip? “More migrants will now get 2nd chance at asylum.”
With audacity in abundance, she actually stated the Biden administration had made progress tackling the “tough situation we inherited.”
Apparently the Vice President, who has steadfastly avoided the border since her March 24 appointment to oversee the calamitous situation, has forgotten that border wall construction was an issue that President Trump campaigned on and was elected to fulfill. Progress was being made until Biden’s surrogates authorized dismantling of completed wall sections and a halt to new construction, creating the current crisis.
Since Biden has undone the effective policies from Day One of his administration, illegal aliens have crossed the southern border at a record rate of nearly 180,000 per month, according to data supplied by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
On his first day in office, signing myriad pre-prepared leather bound executive orders, Biden also overturned President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, affecting illegals awaiting immigration decisions. In the ensuing months, unaccompanied minors, being exploited by transporting drug cartels have become a major problem at the border. Kamala Harris’ response? Listen.
Is it any wonder this June 23, Rasmussen Reports indicates 55 percent of voters support election audits?
