Biden may have been quick to sign those (likely) prewritten executive orders, but it looks like he is not quite as quick when it comes to dealing with the roaring aftermath of rather irresponsible signatures.
Particularly the executive orders that all but basically give the benefits the United States away to illegal migrants, benefits only even “affordable” courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer.
Speaking of the U.S. taxpayer, someone should alert Biden that simultaneously killing tens of thousands of American jobs, between the Keystone XL pipeline cancellation and the absurd business-killing $15/hour minimum wage, will also mean less tax revenues that he can give away to illegal immigrants. Just a thought …
Anyway, Biden’s ultra-leftist DHS Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, who seems more concerned with protecting the security of ultra-left ideals rather than the homeland, has largely ignored the border at the crisis in favor of press-friendly commentary on several occasions.
Just consider the nonsense below.
“We are dedicated to achieving and, quite frankly, are working around the clock to replace the cruelty of the past administration with an orderly, humane, and safe immigration process … It is hard, and it will take time. But rest assured, we are going to get it done.” [Source: Fox News]
“Orderly” and “humane,” huh? So orderly and humane that Biden is resurrecting the exact same procedures followed by Trump (not to mention by Obama, at least in terms of the infamous “cages”).
Which, of course, is a direct result of the insane commentary Mayorkas thought was appropriate to portray to the world in the first place.
“We are not saying, ‘Don’t come.’ We are saying, ‘Don’t come now because we will be able to deliver a safe and orderly process to them as quickly as possible.’” [Source: Fox News]
Ah. Don’t come “now.” As if that will make such a great difference. Clearly, the illegal migrants Mayorkas is targeting do not really care to wait until later, which is evident from tens of thousands growing at the border on a near-daily basis since Biden took office in a manner strangely reminiscent of Central American dictators.
As in heavy military, zero supporters. Someone should warn the illegal immigrants that Biden is fixated on making the United States another banana republic anyway, so there won’t exactly be much to rush to in that case.
Despite the swirling numbers at the border, Mayorkas continued to deny a crisis at the border as late as last week, saying he “thinks” the answer is that there is a “challenge,” rather than a “crisis” at the border.
“I think that the — the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.”

“I think.” Wow, how refreshing! Such confident commentary for someone playing a supposedly critical role in the DHS.
Not to mention such backpedaling, as evidenced from an email sent by Mayorkas himself to his staff, and viewed by Fox News this week.
“Today, I activated the Volunteer Force to support Customs and Border Protection (CBP) as they face a surge in migration along the Southwest Border …
You have likely seen the news about the overwhelming numbers of migrants seeking access to this country along the Southwest Border … President Biden and I are committed to ensuring our Nation has a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system while continuing to balance all of the other critical DHS missions.” [Source: Fox News]
So, now the surge at the border is suddenly “overwhelming.” Gee, you think? Perhaps all the migrants wearing Biden shirts should have been a clue.
“In 2019, over 900 volunteers deployed to support their CBP colleagues during a similar migration surge … Please consider joining the Volunteer Force to again provide needed humanitarian support along the Southwest Border and relief for our CBP colleagues.” [Source: Fox News]
Wow, Mr. Mayorkas. Going the same route as De Blasio’s wife, who has called for defunding police and is now demanding for citizens to “intervene” when they witness violent confrontations instead?
Way to protect Americans …
