In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


White House in denial: No crisis at the border to see here!

With the promise of eventual amnesty, Latin Americans are flooding the southern border to try to cross illegally. The Biden administration is forced to set up tent camps. There is the potential for much misery and suffering that was AVOIDED by President Trump and his tough policies, which discouraged people from heading to the border and creating a crisis.

That’s why the Biden administration is trying to say there isn’t a crisis.

Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner:

There are “as many as 4,000 people trying each day to cross the border illegally. And now, the administration has moved into full denial mode. On Monday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas insisted there is no crisis at the border. “The answer is no,” Mayorkas said at a White House briefing. “I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.”

A reporter challenged Mayorkas. “Respectfully, sir, though, one of your predecessors, Jeh Johnson [President Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary], said that 1,000 illegal border crossings a day constitutes a crisis, that it overwhelms the system. We’re at between three and four thousand now, according to CBP officials. So how is this not a crisis?”

There’s no crisis at the border, Mayorkas repeated. It’s a “challenge.” “I have explained that quite clearly,” he said. “We are challenged at the border. The men and women of the Department of Homeland Security are meeting that challenge.” The Biden administration, he said, is “building the capacity to…meet our humanitarian aspirations in execution of the president’s vision.”

  1. Makes me think of the old cliche, “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”

    There is a crisis at border no matter how you say it, paint it, or want to think of it.

  2. No surprise here. One of several defense weapons used by the far left. The far left will either deny a problem exists, call it a lie, twist the facts, blame somebody else, say nothing or call it racism, discrimination or white supremacist talking points. It’s disgusting. In this particular case, they are using denial. Sadly, the corrupt MSM and pundits will promulgate the denial being promoted by the corrupt senile joe regime. All in an attempt to justify the unjustifiable.

    1. At this point I am so depressed & worn down with all the arrogance & lies coming out of the senile Biden regime… I say let this nation, the USA go to hell…under these Dems-progressives-socialists etc

  3. The good people of Maine or Vermont, etc. don’t see the human tragedy or the consequences of thousands of Spanish speaking, unskilled, illiterate, maybe sick people traipsing though their state looking for help.
    Arizona and Texas are in the dangerous front line of desperate people willing to do anything to be here, to enjoy immediately what we , as a nation, took centuries to build.
    The hordes waiting at the border for their release into our country don’t have any household items, don’t have winter coats or boots or mittens, can’t read city signs, don’t have the first&last month’s rent or any money to speak of, but here they will come, and we are expected to open our arms and wallets for strangers who bring nothing to our country.

  4. Yes, but what is the solution when these real issues are not reported on honestly? Fox News showed an infrared video of running border crossers tonight. Are the MSM or liberal-leaning cable channels covering this? If the guvmnt says there’s no “crisis” & none of this is reported on, Maine, VT will never probably know that. How can the truth be deseminated to those who unknowingly believe they are “informed” citizens? Nothing will change their minds as long as the reality of this border seige is ignored & unknown. How does it change?

  5. Hi Rebekah,

    Is there a way to edit the post to provide a working hyperlink to Byron York’s article in the Washington Examiner? Thank you!
