Team Biden on Monday wheeled out its line on the border crisis, and it’s a doozy. There is no crisis, but if there is, it’s all Trump’s fault. Seriously: Thousands of minors, mostly from Central America, are traveling for weeks without their parents to enter the United States illegally and then request asylum, and Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas insists that’s not a “crisis” but simply a “challenge.” Mayorkas is an idiot and lies. Biden is making a mess at the border and causing a major immigration problem.
No matter that the migration leaves the kids vulnerable to rapists and human traffickers all along the 1,000-plus-mile journey — and then overwhelms US border communities and forces detention of kids in so-called “cages.” It’s no crisis, Mayorkas insists. After all, it’s “loving parents” who are sending 9-year-olds off into this madness, he says as he rejects the Trump “remain in Mexico” policy on asylum claimants: “We are not apprehending a 9-year-old child who’s come alone, who has traversed Mexico, whose parents — whose loving parents — had sent that child alone, we are not expelling that 9-year-old child to Mexico” when the kid is from Guatemala, Honduras or El Salvador.
With that, he’s telling the “coyote” smugglers and everyone else in the sordid chain that the doors are wide open: Come on in, we won’t stop you. This summer’s surge was already expected to exceed the similar nightmare seen under President Barack Obama and after, until then-President Donald Trump found ways to greatly mitigate it by working with Mexican and Central American governments. With the secretary of Homeland Security spouting this nonsense, those expectations look conservative.
Mayorkas claims it’s all on Trump, because he “dismantled our nation’s immigration system in its entirety.” Bull: Trump boosted border resources while using diplomacy to stem the tide. All he dismantled were the Obama policies that triggered the mess in the first place. And it’s President Biden who has dismantled Trump’s solutions. Trump made a big difference.
