Citizens Wonder if Biden Cares

When future historians look back at Joe Biden’s presidency, they may identify October 2021 as the point in time when his agenda became clear to all: subvert and destroy sovereign America.

Unmistakable and undeniable signs of Biden’s goal to irreversibly and forever recreate America in the image his puppeteers – former President Barack Obama; current Director of the Domestic Policy Council, Susan Rice, and Interim Obama Foundation president Valerie Jarrett, to name a few of many – mapped out for him.

During his presidential campaign and since his inauguration, Biden has shown few if any signs that he cares about America or Americans. Early on, Biden disregarded the border surges, waved in about 37,000 mostly unvetted Afghan evacuees, with more on the way. Today, with a large illegal alien caravan bowling over Mexican enforcement personnel on their way to Texas, not a soul in the White House, the cabinet or those among Biden’s confidants has indicated concern about the blatant ongoing immigration law violations.

During October, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas busied himself with protecting the illegal immigrants en route and those already in the interior. Mayorkas’ memorandums made immigration law enforcement impossible. On October 12, Mayorkas ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to adopt a hands-off policy regarding illegal aliens at workplaces. Illegal alien employees may have displaced U.S. workers or through their presence hindered American workers from successfully obtaining employment. In his memo, “Guidelines for the Enforcement of Civil Immigration Law,” the only categories of alien that DHS, ICE or CBP might target are national security or public safety threats.

Mayorkas also created what DHS refers to as “protected areas,” locations where illegally present aliens may gather, but will now be off-limits for ICE and CBP. Protected areas include but aren’t limited to churches, colleges, parades, demonstrations, rallies, social or medical services locations, vocational or trade schools, and children’s playgrounds.

As if the DHS commitment to shielding 11 to 20 million illegal immigrants (or more) isn’t worrisome enough and deeply discouraging to citizens and to legally present aliens and backlogged foreign nationals following the correct immigration procedures, an October 28 Wall Street Journal story proved how over-the-top the Biden administration is vis-à-vis aiding and abetting unlawful presence.

The Journal wrote that the Biden administration’s departments of Justice, Health and Human Services and DHS are in internal discussions to reward illegal immigrants separated during the Trump administration at the rate of $450,000 per individual. On average, each family’s demands total about $3.4 million. The proposed settlement sum is in response to the American Civil Liberties Union’s lawsuit brought on behalf of parents and children who allegedly at the government’s hand suffered potentially irreversible psychological damage when they were separated at the Southwest border. Noteworthy: the multimillion-dollar recompense to aliens who voluntarily, willingly and knowingly broke U.S. laws would exceed the $2 million payouts made to 9/11 victims. And, incomprehensibly, illegal aliens are treated much more generously than military war widows and widowers. The nation’s defenders, killed in the line of duty, receive a comparative pittance, a one-time $100,000 death gratuity.

Biden’s expansive treatment toward and condonement of illegal immigrants invites more of the same. In fiscal year 2021, border apprehensions reached a record high 1.7 million. The open border also has been a financial goldmine for drug and human traffickers, criminal enterprises that the federal government purportedly condemns. But given its refusal to deter the illicit activity, the government actually is endorsing illegal activity. Assuming Biden can complete his term, he has three years left in his presidency to turn his attention to bettering Americans’ lives.

Search as Americans might for clues that the Biden administration may soon elevate U.S. citizens to the same status aliens enjoy within the White House, there’s no indication a policy shift is on the way.
