Opinion: Disorder on the Southern border

Photo/Meridith Kohut/The New York Times / Some of the first migrants to be processed in Brownsville, Texas, after Title 42 expired walk from Matamoros, Mexico, across the international bridge to present themselves to U.S. immigration officials on May 12, 2023.

I fear that if aliens land in the USA and say, "Take me to your leader," it will be very embarrassing for us.

I say this because, among many other things, our border policy is a disaster.

The illegal immigration debate never gets past vilifying those who want to control our borders as "inhumane animals." Just because we think we need to have rules we enforce at our Southern border does not make us animals. Maybe being an animal is not such a bad thing. The difference between humans and animals is simple: Animals would never allow the dumbest among them to lead.

Title 42 was allowed to run out. It was a gimmick that said we could turn back illegals trying to cross the border because they could bring COVID with them.

The immigration game is played like this. They know they can come; they say they were tortured or are fleeing gangs or domestic violence, as they have been told to say. They are let in and given a court date four years out to come to some stooge immigration judge. Few ever show up to court. It is laughable.

Venezuelan and Honduran illegals tell border officials they are fleeing the catastrophe of corrupt socialist rule to live under the Biden administration. Well, at least they got a nice long walk out of the deal.

With the surge at our Southern border, Joe Biden has had the worst month of his presidency — until next month. We are looking at a guy here who is bent on improving his ineptness score monthly. His approval ratings are 33%, below DeSantis, Trump and Bud Light's fired head of marketing.

This is the same guy who told us his massive borrow-and-spend "Inflation Reduction Act" could work. Well, his Border Democratic Voter Stimulus Plan is working. Illegals technically cannot vote, but they do count in the census and swell the population of Democratic districts, which then get more representation. It's a game.

The current government dolt running the Department of Homeland Security is Alejandro Mayorkas. He is a lawyer and lifelong Democratic politician. He is purely a Deep State bureaucrat and uses weasel words when he speaks. For years now, he has assured us the border is secure. If you believe that, you will believe last year was Elton John's final farewell tour.

Biden ignored it for as long as he could, then finally sent someone to visit the border. It was Kamala Harris, so you know he was just going through the motions. Mayorkas panicked and started cleaning up the border like a bachelor cleaning up his studio apartment an hour before a date when he realizes she might stay over.

The leftist mainstream media cover the issue with misinformation and paint it a "humanitarian crisis." This appeals to our emotions. Fox News covers it as it does, always interviewing the hottest young chicks crossing the border.

The main story you saw was Border Patrol agents twirling their horses' reins to push back illegals crossing a river. The agents were cleared of wrongdoing by DHS but cited for not using electric horses.

If you think unchecked immigration won't change a nation, just ask Native Americans. It is just a matter of time before proper English becomes our fourth language behind Spanish and ChatGPT.

Ever the politician in survival mode, Biden declared he would run for president again and began acting like he would crack down on the border — only because it is costing him politically. Dems spent years assailing Trump for his strong border stance. Now Biden is echoing Trump. My campaign slogan for Biden for 2024? "I am Joe Biden, and I approve Trump's message."
