There is where language matters. If you can’t even say the word “crisis,” you’re less likely to do anything about it.
Thousands of people are suffering because of President Biden’s immigration policy, languishing in camps on the Southern border. Kids are separated from their parents because Biden held up the welcome sign at the border and parents sent their children to the United States. Meantime, drugs and probably terrorists surge into the country because Border Patrol agents are overwhelmed by the incoming and distracted trying to care for children.
In his speech to Congress Wednesday night, Biden offered no solutions. Instead, he exacerbated the problem by pressing for more immigration reform that will make it easier for people to stay here, further incentivizing the make the trip.
If Donald Trump didn’t address an obvious crisis, he would have been blasted as cold, mean, and racist.
Biden’s “plan” is to get at the “root” of the problem. He said:
“We also have to get at the root of the problem of why people are fleeing to our southern border from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. The violence. The corruption. The gangs. The political instability. Hunger. Hurricanes. Earthquakes.”
Well, that will take years at best. And you’re talking about “roots” that have existed in Latin America since the Spanish left. And good look getting rid of earthquakes.
Even liberal Biden admirer Robin Roberts of NBC understands that there is a disconnect here and asked Vice President Harris about it.
