Joe Biden has done nothing to secure the southern border.
He’s actually taken several steps to make the problem worse.
Yet Democrats made one insane argument to excuse Biden’s border crisis.
Instead of addressing the border crisis head-on, Democrats have decided to ignore the problem and blame Republicans for noticing.
The so-called “mainstream” media attempted to ignore the recent surge at the border, but that strategy proved to be ineffective.
Now the Left are casting Republicans as the problem for “overstating” the problems at the southern border.
The latest example comes from the ACLU, which has devolved into a Democrat Party advocacy group.
During a CNN panel discussion with host Kaitlan Collins and Poppy Harlow, Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, argued, “I think people are overstating what’s happening at the border . . . If you close the border, of course there will be a temporary influx of people, but ultimately it will even out and the federal government has more than enough resources to deal with this.”
This is a mind-blowing statement considering the federal government has done next to nothing to solve the problem.
In fact, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has actively worked to undermine border patrol agents.
Republican Governors have been sending buses of illegal aliens to “sanctuary” jurisdictions in blue states just to get the word out that border communities are overwhelmed.
Under Joe Biden, illegal alien encounters at the border have reached all-time highs.
Gelernt continued, “You hear people saying, well, this is a national security crisis — if you would see these families at the border, and I know CNN has been down there all the time, these families walk over the border, and they just sit down with their little children wanting to apply for asylum. They’re not bringing drugs, they’re not a danger.”
Gelernt is either being incredibly naive or intentionally dishonest.
The porous border and the incentives for smugglers are the immediate security threat, not a random family.
That’s not to mention the strained resources that get foisted on the people in border communities.
Even Democrat Mayors are fed up with the endless parade of illegal aliens into the country because their towns are not equipped to deal with hundreds – if not thousands – of new arrivals on a weekly basis.
Democrats act as if they want to reform the immigration system, but they clearly like the current broken system that’s already in place because they won’t lift a finger to strengthen it.
