Biden Working to Secure Border … in Tajikistan

The administration has also lost track of nearly 5,000 migrant children in the U.S.

The Biden administration is working with the government of Tajikistan to help it better secure its border with its neighbor to the south, the newly chaotic Afghanistan. As the U.S. ambassador to Tajikistan, John Pommersheim, explained, “The United States and Tajikistan enjoy strong security cooperation, and this border detachment project is just another example of our shared commitment to the security and sovereignty of Tajikistan and Central Asia.” Feel good story of the day, right?

The U.S. government has spent over $300 million helping Tajikistan with security since 2002. The recent announcement coincides with Tajikistan’s pledge to accept upwards of 100,000 Afghan refugees. Oh, and by the way, Tajikistan is still a member of Russia’s post-Soviet security bloc.

Meanwhile, back in the U.S., Joe Biden’s border crisis continues apace. The latest news is that the administration has lost contact with nearly 5,000 migrant children released to sponsors. Biden’s unsecured southern border has resulted in more than 65,000 unaccompanied minors caught illegally crossing into the U.S. since he took office (out of well over a million total migrants). While the Trump administration was widely rebuked by Democrats and the mainstream media for losing track of some 1,500 children, Biden’s near tripling of that total has garnered nary a peep from the MSM.

Republicans are raising concerns over the likely possibility that many of these missing children are being trafficked. Biden’s “compassionate” resistance to securing America’s borders over the delusional claim that doing so hurts people is proving to do just the opposite. He and his administration know this. Why else would they be working to help Tajikistan secure its border?
