democrats blame Trump for border crisis Biden created

Donald Trump is a magician.

Despite being out of office, he was somehow able to invite the invasion of the US by illegal aliens and even furnish them with “Biden please let us in” tee shirts.

Or so democrats would have you believe.

There is a crisis at the Southern border, which is being overrun by illegals and unaccompanied minors.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday said that the U.S. is on track to encounter more migrants than it has in the last 20 years, as he defended the administration’s approach to a border surge that he described as “difficult” — but again fell short of calling it a crisis.

“The situation at the southwest border is difficult,” Mayorkas said in a lengthy statement. “We are working around the clock to manage it and we will continue to do so. That is our job. We are making progress and we are executing on our plan.  It will take time and we will not waver in our commitment to succeed.”

That has a lot to do with Biden promising amnesty to illegals.

It also has a lot to do with Biden dismantling the system Trump had in place when the border was in control.

Career officials from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) warned President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team that revoking President Donald Trump’s border policies would have “catastrophic consequences,” according to Stephen Miller, who served as Trump’s top adviser on immigration issues at the White House.

“Biden’s transition team was warned by career DHS officials that terminating our proven border security measures would lead to catastrophic consequences… they ignored those warnings and voluntarily unleashed chaos,” Miller wrote on Twitter on March 17.

“By 2020—defeating a flood of meritless years-long litigation—we had in place the most effective, rock-solid, profound border security measures ever realized. Biden inherited an unbeatable system. He then immediately shredded it & created this rapidly-escalating emergency,” Miller added.

Now 13,000 unaccompanied minors– far more than ever in the Trump era- are being held in cages and detention camps. Only now the media calls them “facilities.”

CBS News reports U.S. Border Patrol officials are holding more than 13,000 unaccompanied migrant children in custody along the Rio Grande. Many are being held for at least five days — well beyond the 72-hour legal limit.

CBS News Correspondent Mirey Villarreal reported from the Texas-Mexico border that officials are holding more than 13,000 unaccompanied alien children in Border Patrol facilities designed for adults. Many of the children are being held for at least five days. Courts previously imposed a limit of 72 hours on how long unaccompanied children could be held without being released to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Unaccompanied minor children are sent here as a prelude to mass chain immigration.

But don’t you dare blame Biden, says Pelosi. He’s only been in office for two months. Never mind that he said no one will be turned away or deported.

It’s not Biden’s fault, said Jen Psaki. Blame Trump

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday referred to the influx of migrants at the southern border as a “big problem” and blamed the Trump administration for an “unworkable system” — following weeks of the Biden administration refusing to call it a “crisis.”

“We recognize this is a big problem,” Psaki said during a briefing with reporters. “The last administration left us a dismantled and unworkable system and, like any other problem, we are going to do all we can to solve it.”

Blame Trump, says the head of the Department of Illegal Alien Importation and Shifting Fault Alejandro Mayorkas:

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told lawmakers Wednesday that the “unprecedented challenges” at the U.S.-Mexico border cannot be resolved overnight, “due in large part to the damage done over the last four years.”

It’s all Trump’s fault, says democrat water boy and Biden flack Chuck Todd:

Wanting to “dive into politics of this current moment,” Todd wailed: “…Republicans try to keep focus on a border emergency. In some ways they’ve sabotaged our immigration policy and this is why we’re here…” Despite Biden actually being in the White House, Todd singled out a top Trump aide for blame instead: “…look, this is an impossible situation in some ways, because in many ways, the asylum process was essentially destroyed by Stephen Miller, they sort of blew it up, and so it is an extra mess.”

Todd lamented that “it’s hard to look at Republicans in Congress and see that they’re willing to – that they want to solve this problem.” After briefly acknowledging that he has “watched both parties at times, duck a potential compromise because they think the politics will help them,” Todd targeted the GOP once again: “This is what it looks like now with Republicans, that they’re almost rooting for a problem so they can walk away from it.”

The truth?

Jen Psaki is a liar. Former CBP head Mark Morgan:

Everything coming out of the press secretary’s [Jen Psaki’s] mouth is a spin and a blatant lie. The dangerous part is the journey. Right now, in the middle of the global pandemic, they’re traveling through [coronavirus] hotspots in Mexico, traveling in groups, which I call active mobile petri dishes. When they get to the border, they’re kept in overcrowded, unsanitary houses.

“Up to 30% are abused along the journey. Once they’re smuggled in, they’re trafficked. It’s incredulous that she’s talking about the cruelty after they get here.

Trump’s policy was an “unheralded success”

The horrific murders in northern Mexico this week by drug-cartel gunmen are a stark reminder that the United States and our southern neighbor still face significant security challenges. Yet the violence overshadows a policy success story on border security: the Trump administration’s effort to curb the flow of would-be migrants at the border, preventing our border-security infrastructure from being totally overwhelmed and cutting down on opportunities for human rights abuses of migrants and human trafficking by criminal gangs.

The reason you don’t see breathless hyperbole about “children in cages” dominating news cycles anymore is because between May and August, border officials report a sharp decrease in migrants attempting to cross the US border, with apprehensions falling by 62% and total enforcement actions dropping by 70%.

In September, there were some 40,000 arrests, the lowest month this fiscal year and down from nearly 133,000 apprehensions in May.

The reason? Determination and sustained pressure by the Trump administration — including, yes, threats of tariffs — to convince the government of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to do its part to stop the flow of migrants, mostly from Central America traversing Mexican territory.

Now it’s FUBARed so badly that Biden has been reduced to saying “don’t come.”

We have an ongoing pandemic, businesses are closing, Biden says he might allow us to have a small family gathering on July 4 if we behave and he intends to import millions of economic dependents.

Did I mention that he’s sending COVID positive illegals all over the country? He’s dumping them in small towns, leaving the towns on the hook for the financial burden. None of them are going to Pelosi’s or Schumer’s districts.

Trump had it nailed. The border was secure and we were far more safe. Biden has screwed it to hell.

As always with the Democ-Rats they prefer to blame others for their own Dirty Deeds like they did with Trump and Obama and when Bush and Reagan the Democ-Rats always looking for scapegoats

At a House hearing on Wednesday, Republicans repeatedly tried to bait Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas into admitting the border is in “crisis.”

Mayorkas wouldn’t take the bait. But one fraught exchange crystallized something essential about the debate over the influx of young migrants currently overwhelming our facilities.

It’s this: Republicans and Democrats have starkly different visions of what would count as successful management of what’s happening at the border.

For Republicans, success constitutes doing whatever it takes to vastly minimize the number of migrants who apply for asylum — and qualify, ending up living in the United States — even if those measures result in a humanitarian catastrophe outside our borders for the migrants themselves.

For Democrats, measures that result in such a catastrophe are unacceptable even if they would reduce migrant flows. So success cannot constitute reducing migrant flows that way. Instead, success constitutes reforming the system so that people can apply for asylum — and qualify where appropriate — in an orderly way, without the border itself turning into a humanitarian crisis.

The exchange in question illustrates the point. Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Tex.) hailed former president Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy — which forced thousands of asylum seekers to await hearings in Mexico — and praised Trump’s “safe third-country” agreements with Central American countries. Under those, migrants hoping to seek asylum here had to apply in those countries first.

Both policies forced migrants into horrible situations expressly to dissuade large numbers of them from reaching our border.

McCaul then blamed Biden’s cancellation of those policies for causing the crisis. Here’s how Mayorkas responded:

“Sometimes the tools of deterrence defy values and principles for which we all stand. And one of those tools of deterrence that the Trump administration employed was deplorable and absolutely unacceptable,” Mayorkas said.
“I will share with you how I define a crisis. A crisis is when a nation is willing to rip a 9-year-old child out of the hands of his or her parent and separate that family to deter future migration. That to me is a humanitarian crisis. And what the president has committed to and what I am committed to and execute is to ensure that we have an immigration system that works and that migration to our country is safe, orderly and humane.”
In one sense, this is off-point, since the family separations that Mayorkas referenced were canceled after an outcry.

But the core point is important. It’s that a crisis is not merely something that is happening to us at the border as a result of migrations; it can also be something that is happening to the migrants themselves as a result of how we handle our obligation to honor their legal right to have their asylum claims heard.

To be fair, at the hearing, Republicans described the border situation as a crisis for the migrants, too. And while the causes are far more complex than Republican say, it is a terrible situation: The large spike in child and teenage migrants has overwhelmed Office of Refugee Resettlement facilities where young migrants await transfer to a relative or guardian, leading to backlogs, overcrowding and terrible conditions at Border Patrol facilities, their first stop.

Everyone agrees that’s a bad outcome. The difference is over what to do about it. And this points to a fundamental — and telling — contradiction in the Republican position.

Republicans will call what’s happening to migrants a crisis if it can be used to bash policies that are fundamentally about settling asylum seekers in this country. But if terrible things happen to migrants as a result of policies designed to dissuade them from trying to get asylum and remain in our country — which, again, it is their legal right to attempt — then those policies are nonetheless successes, as long as they are deterring those efforts.

And Trump’s deterrence policies did produce serious humanitarian violations. Under “Remain in Mexico,” migrants were exposed to violence and kidnapping; others were stranded in refugee-camp conditions.

And a Senate report documented that under Trump’s agreements with Central American countries, many migrants were effectively denied their legal right to apply for asylum here, a serious reneging on our legal obligations, and exposed many to dangerous and degrading conditions.

But for Republicans, those policies were not “crises.” They were successes. Because they did deter migrants from seeking refuge here. By contrast, Mayorkas said, there are things we cannot permit ourselves to do or countenance, even if they do have that deterring effect.

So the Biden administration wants to solve the problem differently. It hopes to direct massive aid toward improving conditions in Central America — and toward creating pathways to apply for protections from afar — both of which might discourage migrations.

It also hopes to expand the system’s capacity to alleviate inhumane overcrowding and to reform the legal process so children get to guardians a lot faster and asylum seekers get hearings quickly and don’t disappear into the interior. The administration is still indefensibly abusing a public health rule to expel migrants to buy time for these changes, but those reforms are the overall goal.

There is no telling whether the Biden administration will be able pull that off. It’s fiendishly difficult.

But here’s a thought experiment: If the administration did get the system working faster and more humanely, would Republicans view that as a success? It’s doubtful. Instead, they view Trump’s solutions as successes, because they kept more migrants out, never mind the humanitarian consequences.

Once these differences are clarified in this way, the entire debate comes into much clearer focus.

@Ronald J. Ward: Yes, exactly the point of the article.

The border is in crisis, and it’s all Biden… And his voters* fault.

It’s your fault, given you are a Biden cultist.

commicrats follow alinsky’s radical rules. simply when ou screw up blame the other guy. the radical left is calling for the destruction of America in any form. black terrorist groups the extort millions from companies and business. so why hasn’t the fbi gone after the black terrorist groups under the Ricco Act. WHY, because a career pedophile , AD mentally challenged, flea infested mange dog is in the wipe house. alinsky plagiarized Niccolo Machiavelli’s The Prince no different than the pedophile hx of plagiarism.
one can only imagine the garbage entering this country: drug dealers, pimp jihad terrorist and many more; but no different that the democrat congress.

Biden and his fellow Democ-Rats all part of the New World Order all lead by the Useless Nations and the CFR

CBS News reports U.S. Border Patrol officials are holding more than 13,000 unaccompanied migrant children in custody along the Rio Grande. Many are being held for at least five days — well beyond the 72-hour legal limit.

So, aside from simply ignoring immigration law, the idiot Biden is VIOLATING the law.

“The last administration left us a dismantled and unworkable system and, like any other problem, we are going to do all we can to solve it.”

Sure would like to hear what parts were “dismantled and unworkable”. For the first time in history, Trump had actually gotten Mexico and other countries who shed their poorest to the US to cooperate and help stem the tide of illegal immigrants. Apparently, the Democrats’ criticism is that if Trump had already let all these illegal immigrants in, they wouldn’t be flooding the border now.

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told lawmakers Wednesday that the “unprecedented challenges” at the U.S.-Mexico border cannot be resolved overnight, “due in large part to the damage done over the last four years.”

No, the damage caused by the idiot Biden’s and all the other socialist liars that vied for the Democrat nomination pledging NO deportations for at least 100 days, free health care, jobs, free education, free housing, citizenship, free EVERTHING, has been DONE. The total disaster is HERE. Worse, we have the dumbest, most ideological, least caring people to ever occupy our government in charge of dealing with it. The catastrophe will only worsen.

And, on top of all that, add COVID.

The idiot Biden is the reason the wall is necessary. That moron and others like him can NEVER be trusted to protect this country. It’s not enough to try to protect US citizens from economic damage, drugs and violence coming from south of the border; now we have what Democrats like to have us believe is a virus that is a death sentence if we don’t wear multiple masks and never meet in groups larger than one coming, unabated, across the border as well. The wall would serve to protect our border when corrupt idiots put their lust for election fraud and using illegal immigrants to vote for them before the security and safety of American citizens.

The situation at the border pre-moron was not perfect, but it was in the best condition it had been in for decades. There is no possible confusion that this stupid idiot moron Biden totally destroyed border security. Everything he’s touched so far has turned into a catastrophe. He is Mr. Stomach-hands; everything he touches turns to shit.

@Ronald J. Ward: The situation at the border IS a crisis. It’s a disaster. It’s a catastrophe. It’s a debacle. And it’s all due to the stupid idiot Biden you helped fraudulently occupy the White House. YOU need to be at the border taking care of these people; they are YOUR fault.
