Now Joe Biden Is Getting Serious About The Immigration Crisis?

Millions of illegal aliens later …

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The administration of U.S. president Joe Biden is reportedly considering “executive action” in response to the worsening crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, multiple national media outlets are reporting.

That’s right … the same president who halted construction of a border wall, actively circumvented immigration law and recently endorsed mass amnesty for illegal aliens has apparently found religion on border security. In fact, Biden is considering invoking a federal statute his predecessor Donald Trump used repeatedly during his administration.

The statute – section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 – gives presidents authority “to suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens” whenever they find that “the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States.”

Ironically, in addition to halting construction on the border wall, Biden’s executive orders also restricted his ability to invoke section 212(f).

Biden’s sudden recalibration of his border policy comes as America is buckling under the strain of an unprecedented surge in illegal immigration at its southern border – a crisis most would deem as definitionally “detrimental” to national interests.

The nation concurs …

According to new polling from the Pew Research Center, 78 percent of Americans believe the influx of illegal aliens at the southern border is either a “crisis” (45 percent) or a “major problem” (32 percent) for the country. Meanwhile, 80 percent believe the federal government is doing a “bad job” of handling the situation – including 45 percent who say it is doing a “very bad job.”

Of interest? A supermajority of Democrats – 79 percent – say government is mishandling the situation.

According to the latest data from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, a shocking 7.3 million southwest land border encounters have been recorded since Biden took office in 2021. That total does not include the millions of “got-aways” – or illegal immigrants whose crossings are observed but who are never detained. It also fails to include the number of undetected illegal alien crossings at the border.

“Mass immigration is completely destroying our country,” conservative commentator Tucker Carlson noted this week.

He’s right …

In addition to the national security threat posed by this mass undocumented invasion, American infrastructure cannot support all of these new arrivals … nor can American taxpayers afford them.

According to a report (.pdf) published last November by the U.S. House homeland security committee, the annual cost of housing and providing for “known got-aways and illegal aliens who have been released into the country (since Biden became president)” is a staggering $451 billionPer year.

And that was several million illegal aliens ago …

Trump has vowed to implement corrective actions if he is elected president this fall, but as my outlet has previously reported he wasn’t always as good as his word on this issue. That must change in the event he receives another term in office.

“Whoever takes the oath of office in January 2025 must finish a border wall, dramatically de-incentivize illegal immigration and deport illegal aliens en masse,” I wrote last fall. “There is simply no other option if we hope to maintain the integrity or solvency of the American Republic.”

It’s time to call out the military … said no one ever. It needs to happen. Not a few thousand, but tens of thousands, with land, water and air support.

Brave Sir Veritas, he amassed a great force!
Brave Sir Veritas, he set out on his course!

To purge the Latino workers across the lands,
Fill the rivers with blood from his hands,

Brave Sir Veritas, spare no woman or kid!
Brave Sir Veritas, every last one will surely be rid!

Enforcing an ethnostate with machines of war,
Violent nationalism soaked to his core,

Brave Sir Veritas, on a high horse he rides!
Brave Sir Veritas, commander of genocides!

Totally ignorant comment Teresa! Donald Trump is a businessman, not a politician. Building and selling things is business, he is a self made Billionaire, whereas the idiot President we have in the White House, that moronic liberal democrats help get there aren’t smart enough to understand what is going on. Biden is now a multi, multi, Millionaire, not self made but by criminal and treasonist acts. So I would say to you and your people, would you rather have a Billionaire who became a politician to save America, or a Politician who sold his soul, through the Biden Crime Family, to become the Multi-Millionaire and destroy America? I’m sure you will choose the latter, because, “you can’t fix stupid!”

He’s doing something because Trump killed the bipartisan legislation from moving forward so he could have something to run on. It’s his usual m.o. of being the fireman who sets the fires.

Fun fact: immigrants who are off the books but become workers pay taxes but are not eligible for food stamps or other government programs.

Reminder: Trump had 2 full years of having both republican house and senate and didn’t solve this manufactured problem. What makes anyone think he can do it this time?

Immigration law needs to come from congressional legislation.

But thanks for your daily dose of fEaRnEwS.

“. . . manufactured problem”? “. . . immigrants who are off the books but become workers pay taxes”? What’s it like living in your fairyland? You offer nothing to the discussion.

After Republicans did the whole SCOTUS ruling on abortion, I think the last thing they want to do is fix any of the red meat issues they run on.

The Republicans fled Washington to go on an early vacation, so they would have to bite on border legislation that addresses the stuff (even the lies…mass amnesty? GFY, liar) this blogger is typing about.

Republicans and their media toadies look like total idiots. Between the immigration crisis, that Republican refuse to address with actual legislation and being complaisant in using Russian misinformation to try a falsely impeach Biden, Republicans are total losers with nothing to show for their treasonous acts.

After SCOTUS said Biden had no legal authority to forgive student loans, he spits in their face and has his staff send out millions of emails to those that owe student loan stating their loans are forgiven and not to send in any payments. Fooking criminals and criminal conspiracy.

The entire Biden administration is rogue and lawless. God damn them all!

Excellent post Super Foot.See my comment to Teresa above, there is no need to try and talk to a democrat, they have zero common sense, they are more concerned about allowing men to complete in women’s sports or using the ladies room, rather than protecting America. These liberals actually believe a person can transfer their gender and a male can get pregnant, that’s what you call someone who had to go to school on the short bus, they are not only stupid, but just plain dumb, and the sad part is, they are allowed to vote!!!

What’s amazing to me is that Biden has a long, long record of working with Republicans on a plethora of issues and even pushes for harsher stuff than even the Republicans are asking for. I understand Will’s forcing of narrative – grifters gonna grift – but this very much tracks with the five decades of what this guy has been a part of.

I think Reagan and Dubya are great examples of Republicans not even believing what Republicans profess to believe. Only their marks buy this crap.
