Biden’s Illegal Immigrants

Until it is changed, the Biden illegal immigration policy is going to continue to undermine and damage the United States.

Let’s be clear: The ongoing border disaster is taking resources away from Americans and legal immigrants and giving them to people who have broken the law to get into the country illegally.

There is a reason you never hear about it on left-wing propaganda outlets.

President Donald Trump had the border remarkably under control. President Joe Biden has followed an open border policy that has drawn millions into the United States by breaking the law. 

This is clearly the Biden illegal immigration policy – and the people illegally crossing the border are Biden’s illegal immigrants. We should never discuss the current illegal immigration mess without putting its architect’s name on it.

The Biden illegal immigration policy is deliberate – and from the left’s standpoint amazingly effective. More people illegally flooding into the country means more government spending and redistribution of resources. Eventually, this will mean more voters who will be dependent on the government. (It is only a matter of time before the Big Government Socialists can give illegal immigrants legal status – or simply the right to vote.)

This growing disaster needs new focus and clarity. Americans are being pushed aside for Biden’s illegal immigrants. 

Consider the story of the 94-year-old war veteran who was forced out of his assisted living apartment to make room for Biden’s illegal immigrants. Also consider the military families who had their hotel accommodations canceled ahead of the Army-Navy football game in Foxboro, Mass.

The left has no shame.

In the world of the left, Biden’s illegal immigrants deserve better treatment than Korean War veterans in their 90s. In their world, the families of veterans and active-duty service members aren’t as important as non-citizens who entered the country illegally.

As Fox News reported, Korean War veteran Frank Tammaro was given two months’ notice to find a new home. The facility in which he was living in New York City was being sold to house Biden’s illegal immigrants. 

As Fox News reported:

“[Tammaro] said that Island Shores ‘gave us time to get out,’ but not enough time to protest the decision to boot residents – which Tammaro said he tried to do.

“‘Then one day there was a notice on the board. I think that gave us a month and a half to find out where we were going to go,’ he said. ‘I thought my suitcases were going to be on the curb because I’m not that fast.’

“If it wasn’t for my daughter, they would’ve been on the curb. That was it…. Everything was done behind closed doors – we didn’t have a chance to actually make any attempt to stop them because there wasn’t enough time.”

Replacing senior citizens with Biden’s illegal immigrants is clearly government policy. As the New York Post reported, “The Department of Social Services (DSS) spokesman told the Staten Island Advance in September the former senior living facility would be turned into a migrant shelter for 113 families with private rooms and meal services.”

So, Americans are being forced to give their tax dollars to Biden’s illegal immigrants while kicking out 94-year-old veterans. Similar shifts of resources from Americans to Biden’s illegal immigrants are occurring across the country.

Republicans in Congress should be holding hearings. They should bring in witnesses such as Tammaro who have been hurt by the Biden illegal immigration policies.

The Democrats understand how to build emotional, moral causes around individuals. The Democrats would have made Tammaro a national figure (if only he had not been a legal citizen, a veteran, and a hard-working American patriot). 

Republicans must learn how to identify and highlight sympathetic figures if they are going to defeat the Biden illegal immigration policy in the public sphere. We have emotion, facts, and justice on our side. We need to communicate them in a human way – involving specific people Biden has hurt.

Mayors of major cities should be brought in to testify how much they must transfer from education, public safety, sanitation, and other services to take care of Biden’s illegal immigrants.

Parents and other citizens in communities being impoverished by the Biden illegal immigration policy should be invited to testify about the ways in which the Biden administration is making their lives more difficult.

Legal immigrants should be brought in to testify about their willingness to obey the law and work hard – and the unfairness of the current Biden illegal immigration policy.

Getting back to controlling the border and developing strong, effective policies for returning most people here illegally to their home countries should be a major issue in the 2024 election at every level.

Until it is changed, the Biden illegal immigration policy is going to continue to undermine and damage the United States. 

It is time to be blunt: This is clearly Biden’s policy – and the disaster is clearly Biden’s fault.
