Biden’s Border Order Does Nothing But Insult Americans’ Intelligence


by Helen Raleigh

President Joe Biden issued an executive order this week, claiming it would restrict migrants from claiming asylum if they cross the U.S. border illegally and would help “gain control of our border.”

American voters shouldn’t be fooled. Instead, they have at least three reasons to be furious with the President’s EO.

It’s Biden’s Fault

First, let’s not forget it was Biden’s “open border” policies that created the unprecedented border crisis. On day one of becoming president, Biden announced an order to terminate former President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency concerning our southern border. Biden’s EO also paused the construction of the border wall and redirected the funds elsewhere.

On day two, Biden suspended Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program and ended the program formally six months later. The “Remain in Mexico” program kept in Mexico asylum-seekers from Central America and elsewhere until their immigration court hearings in the U.S. The program successfully returned an estimated 68,000 migrants to Mexico during the Trump presidency.

The Biden administration also relinquished its responsibility to enforce immigration law. According to a 2023 House Judiciary Committee report, “the Biden Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to remove more than 99 percent of illegal aliens through immigration court proceedings” between Jan. 20, 2021, and March 31, 2023. During this period, there were more than 5 million illegal alien encounters. The Biden administration reportedly “eased its scrutiny in reviewing asylum claims,” and “immigration judges have granted nearly 80% of claims in the last three years.” Fewer than 6,000 illegal immigrants were removed from the United States.

In 2022, the Biden administration introduced a parole program that has had significant consequences. This program allows up to 30,000 asylum-seekers from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela to enter the U.S. each month. The program allowed the Biden administration to release nearly half a million “inadmissible aliens” into the interior of the U.S., often with “little or no vetting,” according to the House Committee on Homeland Security’s latest fact sheet.

While the focus has been on the southern border, encounters at the northern border in April this year increased by a staggering 1,240 percent compared to April 2021. Under Biden, the U.S. is projected to reach 10 million encounters at America’s borders well before the end of the fiscal year.

Many American cities have been struggling to accommodate the influx of a record number of illegal migrants. Denver’s mayor, Democrat Mike Johnson, announced the reduction of regular city services from the Department of Motor Vehicles to Parks and Recreation in order to fund services for migrants. New York City Mayor Eric Adams declared that his city’s migrant crisis would destroy the city, and the City Council is currently considering a bill that will repeal the city’s sanctuary-city status.

Not to mention, our lawless border poses such a national security concern that even some illegal migrants have become worried. An illegal immigrant from Turkey told Fox News recently that the American people were right to be concerned about the lack of security checks at the southern border.

However, in a recent interview with Time, Biden made a perplexing statement. He expressed no remorse for overturning Trump’s immigration policies and absolved himself of any responsibility for the border crisis. In fact, he went as far as to say that his only mistake was taking too long to replace Trump’s immigration policy with his open-border policy — even though he implemented it on his very first day as the president of the United States. It’s a contradiction American voters should not forget.

Won’t Restore Order

The second reason Americans should be furious with Biden’s latest EO on immigration is that it would not “help us to gain control of our border, restore order to the process,” as Biden claimed.

Biden’s EO insults American voters’ intelligence.

Well, not HIS voters. They have no intelligence to insult. That’s why Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden figured he could weave around all his declarations that there is NO crisis at the border and declare that the crisis that has never existed is Trump’s fault. This EO is the end result of a long chain of failed logic. THIS is what a Democrat “solution” looks like.

His voters think the senate bill is the solution to the immigration crisis

Which itself is pretty funny, because if there was no crisis at the border, why did they need the Senate bill?
