Human behavior is a funny thing… that which is incentivized gets repeated.
The Biden administration has been signaling a whole lot of free government cheese to anyone who has the good fortune to pour over that Southern border.
With such untraceable crowds poised to flood over out border, that must mean, of course, that we no longer have a mortal fear of the super-dangerous Coronavirus that has paralyzed the nation for oh, almost a year now.
It’s the same virus that Pelosi cared SO deeply about that she demanded that all money that was slated for building that border wall be repurposed for some nebulous, unnamed Coronavirus scheme.
That was BEFORE Mexico got jackhammered with the virus.
Under Trump, we had an arrangement whereby Guatemala and Mexico agreed to help us prevent large caravans of would-be American immigrants from crashing our border like they just attempted to do in Guatemala in this video:
Longer versions of this scene include tear gas and the caravan being forcibly driven back the way it came from.
This is not the only group crashing the border, and we know that even now thousands have already gotten past that border, and are hoping to keep going the whole way to USA, many of them explicitly saying this is explicitly driven by the desire for an economic upgrade, not the usual valid arguments for asylum.
This wasn’t just a good immigration policy, it was an act of kindness. Far too many of the people making these trips are exploited along the way by dangerous or violent people. Sexual assaults are, sadly, almost routine. Many fall prey to more mundane violence. Criminal gangs exploit them for thousands of dollars along the way, fattening the bank accounts of the criminal cartels who don’t care a damn about the safety or wellbeing of their human cargo.
This doesn’t even address the problem of human trafficking.
By pumping the brakes on these caravans, and regularizing the asylum application process, many of the thorny problems set up by the legal system (including the politically radioactive issue of the Flores Settlement and the Trump administration’s inherited problem of ‘children in cages’)
Biden doesn’t seem interested in drawing any distinctions between legal and illegal immigration. he seems hellbent on flooding the country with as many people as he can get, which would fit his party’s larger stated goal of tightening their grip on political power.
We have NOT forgotten about this memo, circa 2018:
A memo co-authored by former Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri, obtained by The Daily Caller, admits the Democratic Party needs to protect illegal immigrants brought here by DACA in order to ensure those additional votes.
The Center for American Progress (CAP) Action Fund memo, which circulated Monday, called on Democrats to “refuse to offer any votes for Republican spending bills that do not offer a fix for Dreamers and instead appropriate funds to deport them.”
The memo from the left-leaning think tank also said that protecting DACA is not only a “moral imperative” but also a “critical component” in winning elections.
“The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party’s future electoral success,” the memo read.
It finished, “If Democrats don’t try to do everything in their power to defend Dreamers, that will jeopardize Democrats’ electoral chances in 2018 and beyond.” –FoxNews
Taking these words at their face value, it’s not about ‘compassion’. It never was. It’s about political power and doing whatever must be done to secure it in perpetuity.
The interests of the people, and of putting, as Trump used to say it, ‘America First’ don’t even enter into their math.
Biden ran as a fake tough guy who could beat up a straw man, but can’t take a solid stand on the issues that matter.
We’re going to need to revisit our definitions of ‘tough guy’.
We really need to go to the source.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
