Throughout the Covid-19 global pandemic, there have been many cases where local municipalities and state prisons will release inmates due to Covid-19 outbreaks and social distance protocols. If this sounds controversial, you’re on the right track.
The border mess has been damaging the United States since President Biden took officer. The executive order to stop construction of the border wall and placing Vice President Harris on “border duty” has resulted in hundreds of thousands of border crossings this year. Pictures have shown migrants traveling north with shirts that show images supportive of Joe Biden. It’s safe to say that the whole world saw this coming and took full advantage of a weak southern border.
Law Enforcement Officers have arrested too many migrants for counting for violent acts after entering the United States just this year. And the “Defund the Police” movement has certainly not made resources readily available to our Law Enforcement Officers.
In 2019 the entire Democratic Party labeled the border facilities that held migrant children as oppressive. But the Biden Administration has done nothing to improve the situation. It’s gotten worse.
According to the New York Times, there have been more than 7,500 new Covid-19 cases in the detention facilities since April. Keeping “kids in cages” that close together will certainly spread Covid-19 like wildfire. The astonishing fact is that it seems no attempt has been made to come up with a solution. Harris has handled the border situation for months and has taken no action to visit the border and fix the influx of crossings. Harris instead went to Guatemala and Mexico and lied about seeing the fence, saying, “We’ve been to the border,” and when told that she hadn’t personally been to the border, she responded, “And I haven’t been to Europe.” Why lie when you can take positive action to fix a crisis?
According to ice.gov/coronavirus (Immigration Control Enforcement’s official website), a total of 983 detainees currently are under isolation or are being monitored out of the 27,008-detainee population.
The situation is so severe that the Department of Health and Human Services has been called to secure permission to keep immigrant children in two military facilities. The big question is, if the problem does not cease to exist, where is the next housing facility going to be?
This issue has a broader scale to it. Pictures have circulated on social media of migrant families at airports holding folders that read:
“Please help me. I do not speak English.”
“What plane do I need to take?”
“Thank you for your help!”
Where are they going? Who is funding this?
The link between border crossings, Covid-19, and voter ID laws can be grouped into one issue. A Democratic Administration opens the border, letting immigrants enter the United States, Covid-19 pave the way for a surge of new voting legislation to extend access to vulnerable voters, and restrictions are put in place to remove proper identification requirements from the voting process. That is a formula for disaster.
