No One’s Buying the Border Lies

When even Democrats are revolting, perhaps it’s time to reassess the gaslighting.

The border has been a longtime issue that’s gotten significantly worse under President Joe Biden and DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. What in 2016 would have been considered a crisis level of illegal border crossings in a month is a daily occurrence in 2023.

Yet the president and his team are doing everything they can to gaslight the American people about the border and about their policies that have allowed for hundred of thousands more to enter via flights. All the while, they continue to insist that everything is fine.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently stated, “Look, the president has done what he can from here, from the federal government, from the White House to put forth and manage our border in a safe and humane way to respect the dignity of every human, as he says all the time, and making sure that our communities are safe, and you have seen him do that.”

By “done what he can,” she probably hoped we didn’t notice that Biden has been doing everything in his power to thwart border towns from increasing their border protection while simultaneously silently auctioning off bits of unused border wall.

Jean-Pierre’s worst gaslighting came later when she said: “The president has done more to secure the border and to deal with this issue of immigration than anybody else. He really has. June saw the single largest month-to-month drop in unlawful border crossing because of the policies this president put in place.” As National Review reports, Biden’s team has overseen the reversal of policies like Remain in Mexico and Title 42, both of which cut down exponentially on the influx of illegal border crossers.

No one is buying this fabrication from KJP. June may have seen a drop to “only” 100,000, but July (133,000) and August (180,000) saw spiking numbers again. August also saw an arrival of 91,000 members of a family group. That doesn’t even include the number of illegals invited in by the mobile app CBP One or via a loophole that allowed another influx of migrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. The border-crosser numbers, according to Breitbart, should really be 260,000 for the month of August, and that doesn’t even count the “gotaways” who evaded detection altogether.

The estimate of total “gotaways” since Biden took office is something like 1.5 million.

Biden’s open border has created a humanitarian crisis among those desperate souls seeking to enter the country illegally. Women and children often suffer greatly at the hands of the unscrupulous cartels that “help” them cross the border. Older kids in particular are especially vulnerable to human trafficking. The vast majority of border crossings are “military aged men,” according to Breitbart — though last month marked the first month in Biden’s presidency that families made up the largest demographic. These men are taking American jobs, wreaking havoc in American cities, and filling up homeless shelters. There has also been a huge influx of fentanyl coming in with the illegal crossers. This deadly drug is bringing about devastation within American communities.

Not only is it a humanitarian crisis, but the influx of illegal immigrants is a huge drain on the tax dollars of American citizens. According to The Daily Wire, arresting and ejecting illegal immigrants, as well as housing and caring for the ones who have made it into the country, costs the American people approximately $151 billion per year.

Not even the Democrats are buying this song and dance about the border. According to a recent Fox News poll, Biden’s approval rating on the border is 35%, and a whopping 62% disapprove. It’s also one reason why Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is making rumblings in the Democrat primary. One of RFK Jr.‘s main platforms is his pitch to “secure the border” and “end this humanitarian crisis.” Which is probably sounding great to Democrats in sanctuary cities.

Speaking of such cities, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles are feeling the squeeze. Earlier this month, the governor of Massachusetts declared a state of emergency and called in the National Guard to help. Citizens of these states and cities are experiencing the flood of humanity thanks in part to the busing of migrants from border states like Texas and Florida. New Yorkers in particular are starting to raise Cain with protests and demonstrations.

This is a disaster entirely of the Democrats’ own making, but they are going to continue to allow the streams of humanity to enter and the invasion to continue.
