The southern border deserves better than what we have been doing. As more and more immigrants pour into the country every day, the current president has been steadfastly refusing to refer to the issue as the crisis that it truly is. Unaccompanied minors continue to show up, they make their way through the gaps in the border wall and that is all she wrote from there.
Biden should be more worried about this than he is but why would he care? He’s got progressives to pander to and that’s all there is to it. He keeps claiming time and again that there is no crisis. American resources are being exhausted by all of this immigration but still, he does not care. Our immigration courts have a massive backlog and our facilities have no more room.
This is what Biden gets for rolling out the welcome mat on their behalf. It may seemed like a kind thing to do in the moment but these are the actions that have long term repercussions. Now, it seems as if he is admitting that there is a problem, without actually admitting it. He’s sent FEMA to the southern border, giving them the chance to clean up the mess that he has made. Aren’t they lucky?
“The Biden administration is turning to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for help managing and caring for record numbers of unaccompanied immigrant children who are streaming into the United States by illegally crossing the border with Mexico.
FEMA will support a governmentwide effort over the next three months to safely receive, shelter and transfer minor children who arrive alone at the U.S. southwest border, without a parent or other adult, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Saturday.
Government figures show a growing crisis at the border as hundreds of children illegally enter the U.S. from Mexico daily and are taken into custody,” the Associated Press reports. Since Biden has apparently decided that there is indeed a crisis taking place, it’s time to analyze the FEMA mission statement.
“FEMA’s employees are committed to serving our country before, during and after disasters. Every day more than 20,000 emergency managers work to make our nation safer, stronger and more prepared,” the statement reads. This means that Biden is tacitly admitting that a disaster is taking place at our nation’s southern border as we speak. He can lie all he wants but his actions are speaking much more loudly than he ever could.
The White House has to be admitting that this is a disaster or they would not be able to allocate funding and resources to help out down there. The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act must also be discussed here. Does the Biden order fall in line with this act? According to the letter of the law, Biden must formally declare that a disaster is taking place at the border.
Otherwise, he is just making up the rules as he goes along. The saddest part of all is that this is a disaster that was entirely avoidable. Things did not have to be this way. Biden could have simply kept the status quo at the border but that was too much to ask. He did not want it to seem like he was going to follow in Trump’s footsteps. This silly little bit of hubris is costing the nation dearly at the moment. We could have predicted this but no one ever wants to listen until it is too late.
For once, we are not disagreeing with Joe Biden. We are actually on his side here. The only issue is that he’s created a problem that is going to be very difficult to solve. It’s all well and good that is he willing to send in FEMA now but the irony is not lost on us at all. He never would have had to send them if he had simply done the right thing in the first place.
