Biden’s other little crises

With the final departure of American troops from Afghanistan, it’s likely that attention on it will fall away. Of course this is assuming the Taliban and its ISIS and Al Qaeda friends don’t decide to indulge in some American hostage-taking, despite having hundreds, possibly thousands of such targets left behind in that begotten nation.

Barring that, attention will likely swing back to another crisis that has been ongoing for months now, even if the MSM has done it’s level best to ignore the story.

The almost complete collapse of control on America’s Southern border.

Earlier in the year the Administration’s excuse – rapidly and loudly repeated by the stenographers of the MSM – for the rapid rise in illegal immigrants crossing that border was that it was a Spring surge, such as had been seen before. The last couple of months have shown what bullshit that was.

Every month has seen higher numbers than ever and are the worst in over twenty years/ Also understand that these are “encounters” where the illegals have been met by Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies. The numbers who have escaped detection are unknown of course, but certainly push the numbers much higher. It is now likely that 2021 will see two million illegal immigrants crossing that border.

While playing this down in public the Administration has been caught out when none other than the Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, was heard on a leaked audio recording admitting the truth while talking to Border Patrol officers:

This is unsustainable. These numbers cannot continue. We cannot get to a point where we were a couple of weeks ago, and we’re gonna make sure that doesn’t happen… We’re looking at policy options.

Well duh! This has been known for months by anybody who cared to look, but as usual it was dismissed as partisan attacks. As for policies, one Border Patrol agent at the meeting made clear what the solution is:

“For those of us who have been around here long enough … we don’t need to reinvent the wheel,” one agent told Mayorkkas. “We’ve had this happen before. We know exactly how to shut it down. We need to make illegal entry illegal.”

Woah! Who knew?

As Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) pointed out:

The border crisis was predicted by an October 2020 national threat assessment from the Department of Homeland Security. Biden’s exemption of “unaccompanied alien minors from pandemic-related ‘Title 42’ instant expulsions to Mexico” and effective ending of interior removals for all those migrants who had successfully evaded Border Patrol as soon as he took office made the crisis rapidly worse.

Again. Duh!

One of the propaganda tropes used by the Democrats is that we can’t be heartless to families. Well…

The vast majority of border arrests so far this year have been adults traveling alone — more than 121,000 in May, and nearly 660,000 so far this year. That’s almost twice the total number of encounters in each of the last two years, and well over double the number for 2018. Why is that important? Because adults traveling without families or children are unlike the migrants you most often see featured in corporate media…

They are the ones trying to evade law enforcement. In practice, that means more high-speed car chases. It means small groups of men hiking across South Texas ranchlands, often in camouflage. It means more break-ins and burglaries, assaults on Border Patrol agents, stash houses and smugglers and organized crime. It means a fair number of these men — and they are mostly men — are trying to escape detection because they have criminal records.

The inevitable result has been a 56% increase so far in drug seizures over 2020, with opioids like fentanyl being foremost. What damage that is doing to the rest of the US will not be known until the drug OD deaths are counted up, but it will also mean a big increase on that front.

There’s also another public health danger involved here and it’s one that supposedly has the full attention of the Biden Administration as they scream about vaccinations and mask mandates – except when it comes to illegal immigrants:

The city of McAllen, TX says the federal government has released over 7,000 COVID positive migrants into their city since February, including over 1,500 new infected migrants in just the *last week alone*. A local state of disaster in McAllen has been declared.

The Federal agencies are not even being subtle about it. Check out these videos:

Biden has then had the gall to castigate Texas and Florida about rising numbers of cases of the Delta variant. Hardly a surprise given his own actions.

There’s more cold-hearted callousness where that came from too, Driver recalls trip with migrant children to Chattanooga:

David Alverson owns Nooga Shuttles. He says it’s not uncommon to get a call and not know who he’ll be driving. The company that booked the shuttle bus last Friday said it was for a government operation. David says he had no idea he was helping to transport kids coming from the border.

“As soon as they stepped out, up on the top where they got out of the airplane, I knew exactly what it was. It’s a little emotional,” Alverson told Channel 3.

Alverson says other children stayed on the plane, which flight records show left for New Jersey.
“You could see the little faces looking out all the windows,” he said. Alverson says his passengers appeared between the ages of eight and 14.

Alverson says the same company called again for help transporting children and he declined.
“Called him back and said we’re done. No more,” Alverson told Channel 3.

And what awaited them in Chattanooga?

After a child’s report of abuse at a Chattanooga facility housing migrant children, and then a teen who went missing from the facility, three U.S. lawmakers from Tennessee are again demanding answers from the federal government.

Police have charged a second woman in alleged sexual abuse at a facility that housed unaccompanied migrant children in Chattanooga, according to our sister station WTVC.

The Chattanooga Police Department announced Tuesday night that 22-year-old Florencia Guadalupe Renderos Morales has been charged with sexual battery by an authority figure. They say the victim was a child at La Casa de Sidney.

No wonder the owner of Nooga Shuttles said “no mas”. He has a conscience, unlike the Biden Administration.

As has happened before with such tides of humanity, the Democrat Party is proposing not better border control measures but amnesty for the illegal immigrants. They pulled this stunt back in the mid-1980’s, promising lots of money for various border control measures if only the GOP would agree to an amnesty for the then 3-4 million illegal immigrants thought to be living in the USA, thus putting an end to the problem. The GOP finally went for it, and Ronald Reagan signed it into law.

He later said that it was one of the biggest mistakes of his presidency.

And now in 2021, we’re not even talking about the often quoted figure of 11-15 million illegal immigrants, which is bad enough. The figure comes from the Census Bureau, but such people are the ones least likely to respond to such survey.

So a few years ago a bunch of academics from MIT and Yale decided to build a model based on solid stats like deportations, visa overstays, death rates and legal immigration rates over the last twenty years. They even low-balled all the inputs and fitted the most conservative assumptions they could because they figured that confirmation bias alone would thus produce a figure below 11.3 million. Instead they got a figure of 16.7 million. The results were published in 2018:

The modelers were astonished. As an on-again, off-again New Yorker, I’m not. 

Yet the full range of their model’s outputs is more astonishing still. Accepting, unlike most journalists, that their data contained a large degree of uncertainty, the authors ran their model with a variety of credible inputs literally a million times. The results within a 95 percent probability lay between 16 million and 29 million, with 22.1 million as the mean — or twice as many illegal immigrants as the Census Bureau figures imply. 

Mind, that Yale/MIT model produced half a million results in excess of 22.1 million, with a multitude spitting out estimates in the vicinity of 35 million or more.

A problem that is now between six and ten times as bad as when the original amnesty was applied. I don’t think even The Stupid Party will be tempted by that “solution” again. Frankly, given the backlash of such huge numbers suddenly becoming citizens, even a number of moderate Democrats might blanche – aside from the California ones of course, where it would reinforce their One Party stranglehold, and the Texas ones, with their dream of turning that state Blue.

But that leaves an awful status quo in place, one that’s now rapidly getting worse.

DOES ANYONE THINK

that Somali Refugee, Asha Abilla, sentenced to nine years imprisonment for trying to hijack an Air NZ aircraft during which she stabbed both pilots and a passenger, due to complete her sentence on 7 February, and assessed by the Parole Board as likely to (1) attempt another hijacking or (2) to set herself on fire should not be deported quick smart back to Somalia the minute she is released.

OK, I know it is planned that she will be transferred to a mental health unit under a  compulsory treatment order (CTO) on her release but perhaps someone could tell me the justification for this in my/our dime.

Being granted refugee status is a privilege not to be abused.   What God givith, God can taketh away.
