It is more evident than ever that President Joseph R. Biden is "president in name only." Because of numerous gaffes, and downright confusing flipflops on key policy issues, Biden's mental capacity has rightly or wrongly been questioned since the 2020 Democratic primaries. Arguably, his handlers protected him from media scrutiny during the presidential election campaign by invoking the Covid-19 virus for his non-campaigning.
As Newsmax reported, 50 percent of Americans now believe that Biden is mentally unfit for the job. His public speeches routinely suffer from non-sequiturs or incoherent interruptions, which the Biden camp blames on a speech impediment issue. While a stutter may explain some of the mishaps, it can’t explain all of them nor does it explain his poor border control policy.
The world sees this problem. The American news media ignores it. Beginning with inauguration day executive orders, Biden and his handlers have shown dictatorial streak of ruling by executive order. The Democratic-controlled Senate and House acquiesce holding the commander-in-chief to account, as they agree with his radical leftist orders.
Because of this, Biden's immigration program failures are due to ignorance at best or they are purposely destructive at worse.
Biden's and his administration's actions have shouted that America is now an open leftist state. Foreign criminal cartels, foreign terrorists, foreign nation-states, and foreign nationals all see opportunity to ravage America for their individual advantage.
Crime cartels have increased their drug and migrant smuggling exponentially under the Biden administration. Biden is a boon to the crime cartels, adding to the border chaos.
This arguably began with Biden's decision to stop construction of the border-wall, which left portions of the U.S.-Mexico border completely open and unsecure. This construction stoppage, left roads built to aid wall-construction now open for criminals.
Sheriffs in Arizona opine, "We just built roads for the cartels," at least 4.7 miles are now open for cartel use.
Biden's Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has suggested unused border-wall money go to help new migrant-crossers, legal or illegal. Mayorkas, like all Democratic open-border advocates, believes American tax money is an open-pocket book for illegal open-border crossers.
One border official said, "Foreigners think everything in America is free."
The American news media has to admit the numbers of illegal border-crossers is in the thousands a day. Between 3500-5000 apprehended border-crossers per day are clogging the necessary official paperwork, which in turn takes many Border Patrol agents off-the-line od uty, which means the border is even more porous. While hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens cross the border voluntarily surrender to Border Patrol and local police officials, untold thousands of migrants are crossing illegally, according to the Washington Times.
Still, Sec. Mayorkas parrots the Democratic party-line, "No border crisis, just a challenge." At the same time, Mayorkas admits the Southern-border has an overwhelming number of migrants crossing into the U.S.
The Times also reported that Mayorkas recently begged for help, "Today, I activated the volunteer force to support Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as they face a surge in migration along the Southwestern border." The volunteers will be used in a non-law enforcement capacity.
The number of unaccompanied minors that have crossed the border has grown so fast since February 1 that the Biden administration has no accurate number. We do know that shelters are at capacity and re-location of the children is helter-skelter as they say.
While Texas border surge is getting most of the attention, Arizona and California illegal border-crossings goes unnoticed nationally.
As of March 9, 2021, Tucson, Arizona migrant shelters are also over-flowing. Tucson officials are asking the Biden administration for help via incrreased funding, while busloads of foreign nationals being deposited in record numbers across America.
Arizona towns are complaining that of the Biden administration merely drops off migrants/asylum-seekers and most of them do not speak English, adding to the problem. The migrants and asylum-seekers are Cubans, Brazilians, Romanians, Haitians, Africans, and other nationals. Ironically, San Luis, Ariz. is on the Mexican border. So, Biden's people are just moving some migrants around the Southwest, and others are moved everywhere in the country--- all without a plan.
In San Luis, there is the Campesinos sin Frontera’s (Farmworkers without Borders) group, a local organization to help farm workers and other in need. Executive Director of the organization Emma Torres has been quoted as saying to ABC 15 on March 8, 2021 that Border Patrol agents are "overwhelmed" and her group is assisting in locating the migrants.
Torres also says her organization is running out of money. Arizona charity groups along the border are being overwhelmed just like the border, and the busiest months are ahead. The Biden administration is silent on moneys for the impacted locales.
From reports of the sheltering personnel, the immigrants include children with little clothing, no shoes, pregnant women, even a three-day-old baby and a three-month-old baby. Here and in other rural communities, they lack the necessary infrastructure to adequately deal with the hundreds of migrants that arrive each day. This is a humanitarian mess.
Testing for Covid-19 and other and diseases is spotty at best. Criminal history of the migrants is unknown, as well as their medical condition and immigrant status.
Tp this extent, Governor Greg Abbott, R-Texas is quoted as saying, "The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration."
It is clear, whether aware of the immigrant surge or not, the Biden administration has demonstrated an incapacity or unwillingness to control the United States border.
