Who Benefits From the Biden-Harris Immigration Policy?

Let’s talk calmly and objectively about US immigration policy, shall we?

And, let’s focus on what’s happened so far this year following our nation’s latest change in strategy. Those changes have sparked an unprecedented flood of refugees across our southern border.

The U.S. Border Patrol reports that during the month of May agents grappled with more than 180,000 migrants. In April the number was 178,000. A government estimate says we are on track to handle more than 2 million immigrants entering via the southern border by the end of this fiscal year. That doesn’t count all the other immigrants who enter the U.S. legally.

No matter how often administration officials tell potential refugees “Do not come,” or declare that “the border is closed,” the truth is that massive numbers of immigrants continue to come across the U.S./Mexican border and that border is as leaky as a spaghetti sieve.

Psaki Said a “Vast Majority” of Migrants are Turned Away

Don’t be fooled by statements that “a vast majority of the people will be turned away” from the border. Nope, most don’t show up at official check points. The majority of today’s immigrants are being dropped off by money grubbing handlers at wide open spots along the southern border, forced to travel on foot the rest of the way. They also arrive clinging to the undercarriage of railroad cars or take the journey via boats that drop them near the California coastline. Some are greeted by U.S. authorities. Others, the so-called “got-aways” simply disappear into the United States. Texas has been particularly overrun with migrants as has New Mexico and Arizona.

But today’s record-breaking immigration numbers don’t tell the whole story.

Success of getting to the U.S. from Central America – or any other country for that matter – largely depends on help from vicious drug cartel coyotes. It is frightening to realize what can happen to migrants (including young children) who travel this dangerous route.

FBI Director Christopher Wray says the cartels track these refugees and force them to do cartel work while in the U.S. Testifying before the House Judiciary Committee this month Wray painted a bleak future for immigrants who are intimidated into either trafficking illegal drugs or participating in prostitution rings.

Wray Speaks of Immigrant “Cartel Slavery”

It’s a “modern form of slavery,” Wray said, adding, “it’s almost Medieval.”

The migrants, he said, must do what they are told or face savage retaliation either against themselves, a loved one in the U.S., or a family member back in their home country. They fear deportation if they ask police for help. Some caught in this web may never escape a life of exploitation.

Also, think about those immigrants who get to the United States, take the chance to ignore the order to return for their prescribed court date, and then must look over their shoulder for years worried they’ll be caught. Living life under the radar ensures living in poverty and fear. Menial jobs, inadequate health care and education and not a chance of becoming a legal home or business owner. The American Dream (whatever that is these days) is never quite within their reach. If they had entered the U.S. legally they could enjoy all this country has to offer.

One more important point. While our overwhelmed Border Patrol is distracted with processing throngs of migrants each day the Mexican cartels’ grand scheme is flourishing. They successfully send countless drug mules to slip across remote areas of our border carrying massive quantities of illegal drugs. Last year – a year in which Americans were supposedly isolated at home and away from their dealers – there were still more than 87,000 overdose deaths, most attributed to fentanyl from Mexico.

This column is designed to make Americans aware of what actually happens to many migrants once they get here. Is it a better life from whence they came? Yes, for some of them. But when the tendrils of Mexican drug cartels reach deep into the United States and squeeze freedom from these new arrivals then no one wins.

Politics has gotten us to where we are today. If we are ever to come to a fair solution to the immigration situation – fair to U.S. taxpayers and to the newcomers – we must first be honest about the consequences of the current policy. It isn’t working.

    Everyone keeps talking about our immigration policy.
    From what I can tell we really do not have one. It should be called open borders policy.

    Oh it’s working all right. This is just one of the myriad of ways that this country is being broken down and re-made by the “ruling class”.

    Diane Dimond, Your column Saturday in the Albuquerque Journal was spot on!
    For a country who eschews slavery, we have just tacitly approved another form of slavery, you are correct about that, especially the sex slaves and the prostitution

    So Diane,

    The real question here is how does bolstering the drug cartels benefit the DNC ?

      Diane replies:

      Well, Mac, some might say by allowing the cartels to make money transporting all these migrants to our border – the end result will be to bring here a whole new group of potential democratic voters.
      That’s supposing once they become citizens they will remember that it was the democratic party that allowed the open border policy.

    So, Christopher Wray, why oh why doesn’t your office do your job and STOP this medieval treatment of illegals by demanding the president stop his stupid reversal of Trump’s laws, finish the wall and stop allowing these people to cross our border?
    Biden and Harris have proved they don’t give a shit and they are both incapable of running OUR country.
    Please, please step up and take charge now !

    One should always seriously ask themselves who benefits from any “official” statement, action, law, etc., looking deeply into it even if it’s something we like.
    Yes cartels benefit by bringing in the undocumented. Yes the Democrat party benefits at the state and local level for the votes.
    The slave trade benefits from easily disappearing people.
    Other governments can benefit by offloading their poor.
    Businesses also benefit from cheap labor by having undocumented people come in, but they will benefit even more now as Americans who are getting money to stay home don’t go back to work because they get more to not work.
    Psychopaths in government benefit from Americans being dependent on the state while the undocumented do
    the work because they can more easily control them.
    For example: want the “non-compliant” among them to have vaccines? Mandate it or no money.
    This list can go on and be fleshed out.

    It is so excellent that we open up our borders During a global pandemic, after 600,000 US citizens have died thanks to China. I mean this is so necessary at this time. The Democrats are total and complete morons. I mean you still can’t cross the Canadian border but you can come to the US through the southern border from any country in the world with any rap sheet for any intention. This truly is complete and utter madness.

    Who benefits from the Democrats’ immigration policy plus the Democrats’ voting-rules policy? Why, the Democrats, of course! They silently aid and abet a tsunami of illegals streaming across the border, while promoting a no-holds-barred free-for-all at the polls. The two policies work together to keep Democrats in power indefinitely.

    What the the article misses is that this open border policy will harm the poor already here and Illegals will be competing for entry level jobs of all kinds. The inner cities will be easiest place to hide.

    Indentured servitude, sex slaves, day labor, and vagrants – poverty accelerated and amplified by Biden’s illegal voter ambition.
    A poem by Emma Lazarus was used to fund a pedestal upon which to place the Statue of Liberty. 20 years after it was gifted to the USA.

    “Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
    With silent lips.
    ‘Give me your tired, your poor,
    Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
    Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

    Liberty is powerful. Legal immigration built and builds the USA.

    Illegal immigration brings lawlessness. Biden’s ambition for big government does not tolerate liberty.

    They don’t want to stop it.
    They want power and votes, at the peoples expense.

    This is all old news. The illegals are just going to keep pouring in. I feel no sympathy for the greedy cowards who run away from their country and try to take what’s mine. Cut off the “free” stuff, turn ALL of them away, and make illegal entry a felony, They don’t want to become Americans, they want to be the same savages they were in CA, only sending their bills to someone else.

    Can we AT LEAST do away with birthright citizenship?

      clarkgablefan replies to Morrigan, too:

      From your lips to God’s ear. We MUST do away with birthright citizenship for illegals, “refugees” and birth tourists. It’s national suicide to give something so precious as citizenship to people who either want to infiltrate the country for an agenda, or just get all the free stuff.

      And as the usual suspects love to invoke, “Every other developed country!!!” has immigration laws that don’t include this ridiculous and fatal flaw.
