HOMELAND SECURITY With Joe Biden’s presidential win seemingly cemented by the Electoral College vote on Mondaythousands of migrants in Central America are launching new caravans to flood the U.S. border with Mexico. As I warned earlier, Biden’s statements promising amnesty to all illegal aliens residing in the U.S., and proposals for massive increases in the number of ‘refugees’ allowed in the country, have emboldened illegal crossers to surge into the U.S. prior to Biden’s inauguration.

This may be one of the first crises of the incoming administration and one partly of his own creation.


As American Military News (AMN) noted:

Jose Luis Gonzalez, coordinator of the Guatemala Red Jesuita con Migrantes, said President-elect Joe Biden’s immigration policy changes and the transition to a new administration encourage impoverished Central Americans to risk the long journey to the U.S. Biden has vowed to reverse a number of President Donald Trump’s migration policies, including illegal immigration deterrents like prolonged detention and family separation.

“When there is a change in government in the U.S. or Mexico, caravans start to move because they are testing the waters to see how authorities respond,” Gonzalez said, according to Bloomberg. And Biden’s statements have encouraged illegal migrants to go to the United States.

The Miami Herald has reported that the migrants aren’t only limited to residents of Central America, though. Thousands of Cuban migrants, including pregnant women and children, are hoping to join the caravans traveling from Guyana, Paraguay, and Chile.

But Biden seems to have placed himself in a corner with his premature pronouncement of radical changes to Trump’s immigration policy.

According to Bloomberg:

Biden’s advisers are hoping to shift away from Trump’s policies without signaling that the border has been flung open, according to people familiar with the planning. They know that swift, sweeping changes will spur more people to attempt the journey to the U.S.

Ironically, adds Bloomberg, Biden’s controversial nominee to lead the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, dealt with migrant surges during Barack Obama’s administration by “adding detention facilities for adults with children and increasing enforcement and deportations, drawing criticism from civil and immigration rights groups.”

These policies, of course, were very similar to President Trump’s.

I can NOT afford to pay for all these people in the United States. Stay in your own country and build it up. Everybody has problems including us. But we can’t afford to fix yours too. Get rid of your commie overlords and gangs. Nothing improves without a fight. You might get to the United States just in time to be caught in the middle of a civil war. You would just be a target with no protection or services available. If China takes over then you will be Chinese slave labor Think about it. STAY HOME!

You are taking to a low IQ people who cannot discern what you are saying. They all want everything they can get their hands on, not caring that YOU or me cannot afford it, because they just don’t give a damn that we cannot afford it, it’s all about them.

AND, if you look closely at the photos being taken of them, they are 90% young military aged males, with very few women and children, and the demonRATs and their mainstream media mobs are forcing us to accept this “fundamental transformation” of our country, which includes a culture change, which IS a takeover, down our throats.

Why are there so many military aged males? Think about this. They are here to take our country down, to join the riots, to ruin our economy, to fight us when called upon, and to take our country down for their cause. The demonRAT party has put our country up for grabs, any enemy who wants to join their treason are welcome and protected from whatever they do, and they can have anything they want for their service to them.

If there are so many military aged males willing to fight for the dems why didn’t they fight for their own country and get rid of their oppressors there .

Free is never really free. Someone has to pay for it. That is usually the Middle Class which they are trying to destroy with all these shut downs. The $$$$$$$$$$$ BILLIONAIRES $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ are all invested in Chinese businesses. They win we lose in every deal made, except when Trump steps in and makes them pay a tariff so our products are cheaper, than theirs.
