Illegals Crossing Rio Grande Valley Say They’re Crossing Because of Biden
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris want us to believe two things; that there’s no crisis on the border – and that whatever is happening there is Donald Trump’s fault.
Harris has at least branched out her excuses for the “not-border crisis” crisis to include other variables she picked off a liberal bingo board – going as far as to blame climate change and anti-LGBT violence for increased illegal crossings (as well as the usual excuses, such as poverty and crime).
Even if we were to grant that those factors influence illegal immigration, that doesn’t explain why it’s a problem right now. After all, it’s not like Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador’s problems with poverty and crime began in January.
What did begin in January however was Biden’s undoing of Donald Trump’s immigration agenda. One of the first things Joe Biden did after taking office was to begin undoing Donald Trump’s legacy on immigration through a series of executive orders. Those executive orders aim to, among other things; establish a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegals, halt border wall construction, rebranding “kids in cages” as “kids in overflow facilities,” and halt deportations.
That sent a clear and immediate message to prospective illegals – and border apprehensions in January promptly jumped 157% year-over-year, only to continue surging since.
As the Daily Caller reports:
In January Biden reversed Trump’s “Remain In Mexico” policy that required asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico for American court hearings. Critics argue this has played a major factor in the influx of migrants entering the southern border as well as Mexico’s new law that prevents the country from accepting migrants traveling with young children.
“He was very racist and had no love for the people who are of humble means,” a female migrant told told the Caller as she approached Border Patrol, referencing why she didn’t come to the southern border when Trump was in office.
“Thank you for supporting us, we appreciate it,” another migrant told the Caller when asked if she had a message for Biden.
Back in March, photos of a caravan of migrants wearing “Biden, Please Let Us in!” shirts went viral.
Illegals have already told us why they’re making the journey in record numbers – and only Biden and Kamala haven’t gotten the memo.
