During a recent Fox News appearance, Texas Governor Greg Abbott blasted President Biden and his administration for having no plan to stop the chaos at the southern border; Abbott reacted to remarks made by Biden earlier this week.
“Biden talked about the Republicans having no plan. Republicans do have a plan to secure the border. Biden has no plan to secure the border. Americans are angry and frustrated. It’s time for Biden to lay out details about how he will stop illegal immigrants coming across our border.”
“Under the Trump administration, we had the lowest border crossings in decades. It took only a year under the Biden administration to have the most illegal border crossings ever,” Abbott added. “And what Biden is laying out right now is not going to reduce that.”
Abbott also said Biden’s ideas will ”entice even more people to come here illegally.”
Were Biden’s ideas that bad? Yes —yes they were. From The Washington Free Beacon:
The United States will accept up to 30,000 migrants from those countries under a “humanitarian parole” program, Biden announced on Thursday. Migrants who qualify for the program will be able to travel directly from their home countries to the United States after applying to the program through a mobile app, rather than declare asylum at the southern border after crossing from Mexico. Biden in the fall implemented a pilot version of the program for Venezuelans.
Biden’s plan comes as the United States, since the president took office, has suffered the worst border crisis in its history. Federal data show that the southern border has seen more than four million illegal border crossings since the beginning of 2021, with the pace showing no signs of slowing.
So, the plan for record-breaking border crossings and hundreds of thousands of “gotaways” is to offer illegal migrants a phone app to make it easier to get in? That’s what it sounds like.
“This is one of the most egregious, unlawful abuses of humanitarian parole authority in the history of our nation—a middle finger to Congress, the American people, and the rule of law,” said Federation for American Immigration Reform director of communications R.J. Hauman.
Maybe America was better off when Joe wasn’t looking at the border; his ideas will only make the situation worse.
