Even if moderate Democrats won’t admit it — because they may not even know it — the facts speak loud and clear: the Democratic Party leadership wants Open Borders.
Fact: Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas ordered no enforcement against illegal immigrants who are not violent criminals, or deemed national security risks. If illegals are not to be removed, that is, in effect, an Open Borders policy. America becomes a Sanctuary Country. And there may be as many as 20 million in our country.
Fact: Mayorkas issued a policy to not prosecute employers for hiring illegal immigrants, unless they are engaged in “abusive or exploitative labor practices.” The 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act, voted for by Sen. Joe Biden, prohibits the hiring of illegal aliens. Mayorkas is breaking federal law and thumbing his nose at Congress.
Fact: Not just the workplace has been red-lined. Mayorkas’ order prohibits enforcement in licensed daycares, pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools, post-secondary schools, colleges and universities; medical treatment and healthcare facilities; places of worship or religious study; playgrounds, recreation centers, childcare centers, before- or after-school care centers, foster care facilities; social services establishments, domestic violence shelters, victims services centers, child advocacy centers, family justice centers, homeless shelters, drug or alcohol counseling and treatment facilities; food banks or pantries or other establishments distributing food or other essentials of life to people in need; disaster or emergency response and relieve centers; public demonstrations, such as parades, demonstrations, or rallies. And in Philadelphia, courtesy of the mayor, no arrests can be made in jails. Kenney denies he’s breaking the law by shielding illegals from ICE, but US Code, Title 8, Chapter 12 disagrees: a “local government entity or official may not prohibit, or in any way restrict, any government entity or official from sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful,or unlawful, of any individual.”
Fact: The Biden Administration has proposed allowing asylum officers to grant full and immediate asylum at the southern border. That job belongs to immigration courts and judges. “Illegal immigration has soared to levels not seen in decades. Asylum abuse is rampant as the administration has shown minimal effort to protect the integrity of our legal immigration system,” says Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
Fact: Arrests in the interior, according to the Washington Post, have cratered to the lowest level in a decade. Even as the tide of illegals getting into the country is hitting new peaks. “We are deporting many people,” lied Mayorkas, forgetting that sending people to the interior of the U.S. is not deporting.
Fact: During the presidential campaign, candidate Joe Biden joined nearly all other candidates in voting for free health care for illegal immigrants. So cool — free for THEM, but not for all American citizens.
Fact: The Biden Administration is planning on making a $450,000 gift, per person, according to the Wall Street Journal, to those separated from their children under Trump’s “zero tolerance” rule. It could be $1 million per family. (Biden called the report “garbage” at a Wednesday news conference.) No matter how you feel about that policy, how does Biden get to $450,000, which would be lifetime earnings for those impacted? How about just giving them an apology and a Chevy Cruze to drive home?
Let’s be clear, the Biden Administration is breaking federal law and custom, which is exactly what it accused Donald J. Trump of doing.
On almost his first day in office, Biden ordered an illegal “pause” in deportation that was later reversed by the courts. Right off the bat, he broke the law and there was barely a murmur from the press watchdogs of the Establishment.
Biden did successfully reverse other Trump rules, which resulted in an immediate skyrocketing of illegals — from all around the world — some even in caravans that some MSM outlets chose to pretend did not exist. (Hello CNN and MSNBC.)
It is not overstating the obvious to say we are under attack by foreigners, and our president is aiding and abetting them. His failure to act is — brace yourself — an impeachable offense.
Biden’s limited intellect, bad judgment, and severely bleeding heart explain why he could not get my vote for president.
I oppose Open Borders.
By his actions, he supports them. His actions speak louder than his denials.
What’s wrong with Open Borders? Am I just mean?
Let’s start with this — it is illegal.
Congress sets immigration policy and it’s kind of mind-bending that some of those who write the laws are actively undermining them.
This is a recent change, because for decades Democrats opposed unrestricted immigration.
From as early as Bill Clinton, to as recent as Barack Obama, presidents have opposed Open Borders and Sanctuary Cities.
In his 1995 State of the Union, Clinton came down hard on “illegal aliens” as harmful to America. Wow! He said “aliens.” Trying saying that today.
Here is Sen. Obama in 2005.
Here is President Obama in 2014, and here he is a few weeks ago.
Want more? Here’s Chuck Schumer saying “illegal is illegal” in 2009 and scorning terms such as “undocumented workers.”
You get the picture? The Dems used to be on the side of the law. Past tense. They have “evolved” into lawlessness.
What else is wrong with Open Borders?
Some 158 million foreigners would come here if they could, according to a Gallup poll. Their desire to come here is no less sincere than those from our hemisphere who break down our doors. And they don’t determine annual quotas — we do. And those quotas should benefit Americans.
If you believe in Open Borders, or not expelling those here illegally, tell me how we could accept 158 million people — 50% of our current population?
Where would they work? Where would they live? Who would meet their medical needs? Their educational needs? Who would integrate them into our culture?
Anyone with half a brain knows that would be impossible, so I can hear you say, “Well, we wouldn’t take 158 million.”
Yes you would, because by breaking current law you are opening the door to unrestricted immigration. That is Open Borders.
If you think we should open our borders to everyone banging on the doors, think about the consequences.
