President Joe Biden’s visit to the southern border has backfired massively and the Biden administration’s new plan to tackle the immigration crisis will likely only make the situation worse.
The President shocked everyone when he suddenly announced he would visit the border after two years of pretending that nothing was wrong and the immigration crisis didn’t exist. The President visited El Paso, Texas, on Sunday and his visit left neither right nor left happy.
In a letter given to the President, Texas Governor Greg Abbott noted that El Paso “has been sanitized of the migrant camps which had overrun downtown El Paso because your administration wants to shield you from the chaos that Texans experience on a daily basis.”
It’s going to get worse
Abbott also delivered two demands to the President upon his arrival in El Paso. Abbott wants the President to enforce the detention of illegal border crossers and to slash the number of illegal immigrants being allowed to remain in the country.
However, it appears that the President and his administration intend to do the opposite of what they are obligated to do.
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas met with reporters during Biden’s visit and revealed a new plan to address the crisis at the border.
Migrants can now make appts to enter U.S.
The Biden administration will be rolling out a new app called CBP One which immigrants will use to make an appointment to enter the U.S. at a port of entry.
Those immigrants will then be let in at a port of entry and will be located within the United States will they pursue an asylum claim.
Mayorkas explained that “What we’re trying to do is … incentivize a safe and orderly way and cut out the smuggling organizations.”
The Biden administration has no intention of cutting down on the number of illegal immigrants entering the United States. Rather they want to change how those illegal immigrants enter the nation.
No one is happy
Conservatives are obviously enraged by the President’s visit and the new plan. Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel reacted to the news by saying, “230,000 people were apprehended illegally in November, that is a record high. So nothing with that is going to be solved. We need more Border Patrol agents, we need to fix these walls.”
Even leftists aren’t happy with the President. The American Civil Liberties Union issued a statement saying, “The plan [Biden] announced further ties his administration to the poisonous anti-immigrant policies of the Trump era, instead of restoring fair access to asylum protections.”
The President’s plan is truly insidious as it does nothing to deter the hordes of immigrants swarming the border. Rather it seeks to magic away the problem by giving those immigrants “authorization” to enter the United States.
The President clearly didn’t see the real problem in El Paso. Until his administration actually takes steps to close the border, thousands will continue to pour across the border and swamp southern states and cities with problems they simply can’t handle.
