Is this insanity or part of a bigger plan? The Biden administration is doing everything they can to eliminate our Southern Border. To give Biden credit for a more extensive plan is to give him too much credit. This debacle is the same as Afghanistan, the Pandemic, the Economy, Inflation, or any other sector of the country that Biden has messed up. Biden is in way over his head. Whether he was ever able and his degrading mental abilities are failing him, or, as most of us knew, he is not the person for the job. Biden was a mediocre senator who amassed a small fortune by using his position and his equally mediocre son, Hunter.
In addition to the 200,000 illegal aliens crossing our Border every month since Biden took the oath of office, we watched his handling of the 15,000 Haitians that crossed our Border into Del Rio, Texas, over the last few weeks. The Biden team claimed they were surprised by this group of people breaching our Border. We now know that is a lie. The Panama Foreign Minister recorded this week that she had warned Biden of the 15,000 approaching our Border. Biden has yet to respond to her claim. She is now warning us of a group of 60,000 Haitians in transit from her country towards ours, and the total number could be as high as 400,000. Will Biden be ready this time? I doubt it.
There is no way that our Border Patrol can handle 400,000 illegals crossing simultaneously. The Patrol will be overrun, and these people will find their way to every corner of our country. There will be no vetting, we will not know who or where they came from, and they will not be tested for COVID. With the warning we have and the size of this mass of migrants, we should locate them and stop their progress. We should, but will we? Looking at Biden’s track record and the obvious answer is that Biden will do nothing. He will let this enormous group of people breach our Border and then deal with the crisis after the fact. That is not a plan, but that is Biden.
One notable fact discovered this week by Peter Doucy of FOX News is that Joe Biden has never been to our Southern Border. Biden has been in elected office since 1972. He has served as a Senator, Vice President, and President, and in 49 years, he has never found a reason to visit our Southern Border. How could that be possible? Maybe that is why he has no issue with Kamala Harris not visiting the Border even after Biden put her in charge of the Border Crisis early this year.
This lack of effort to visit the Border helps explain Biden’s position after seeing one image of our horseback riding Border Guards attempting to control his steed and the illegal he was trying to stop. He has no first-hand knowledge of the crisis and our various agents’ procedures to patrol the thousands of miles of unprotected crossings. Rather than try to understand what happened, he suspended the use of horses at our Border. With the treacherous terrain, horseback agents were one of our best tools.
We have no timetable for when this latest caravan of foreigners intent on coming to America will arrive. There is no indication that the Biden team is planning on being proactive to stop the migration. That is unfortunate as this is another humanitarian crisis that is about to happen but could be avoided. If not, it will be another failure on the Biden resume.
