ARE DEMS CREATING AN IMMIGRATION CRISIS?

Lord God, we ask that You give our nation's leaders wisdom as they make decisions about immigration. Please guard our country against evil.

Perhaps Democrats could have picked a worse time to unveil their expansive immigration bill that would grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, but not much worse.

The legislation, introduced Thursday by congressional Democrats with the full support of the Biden administration, dubbed the “U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021,” comes as President Biden is rolling back border security measures implemented under Trump and the number of illegal border crossings is surging.

Combined with the ongoing pandemic and shortages of food and water in Texas after freezing temperatures left millions of Texans without power last week, a perfect storm is brewing on the border. Earlier this month, Mexico stopped accepting Central American children and families apprehended at the border.  . . .

Biden has rather weakly urged migrants to stay away, essentially telling them not to come just yet and to wait until the administration is better prepared to receive them under what amounts to Obama-era “catch-and-release” policies. . . .

Arrests of illegal immigrants are up across the U.S.-Mexico border, especially in the Del Rio sector and the Rio Grande Sector in South Texas, the border’s busiest regions for illegal crossings.  . . .

Last week, amid the power outages in Texas, the mayor of Del Rio pleaded with the Biden administration to stop releasing illegal immigrants into his community, saying, “We do not have the resources available to house and accommodate these migrants within our community.”

Meanwhile, the message has gone out to sending communities in Mexico and Central America that, with a new administration in charge now, if you can get into the United States, you can stay. To get a sense of what’s coming, consider an Associated Press report last week on a migrant shelter in Mexico, the first one Central Americans reach after trekking through a stretch of Guatemalan jungle. It has hosted nearly 1,500 migrants so far this year, compared to 3,000 for all of last year. . . .

Amid all this comes Democrats’ immigration bill, which seems almost tailor-made to worsen the situation. Unlike previous attempts at immigration reform, Democrats’ amnesty bill contains almost no provisions for additional border security. In the past, amnesty proposals were always coupled with more enforcement mechanisms for the obvious reason that if you grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, it sends a strong message to would-be migrants that if they can get into the United States, they can stay.  . . .

Some Democrats, whose constituents have to deal with the fallout from such policies, are warning their colleagues that this is the wrong time to introduce a mass amnesty bill, that it will make the gathering crisis much worse, and that Democrats will pay a heavy political price. Last week, Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, a Texas Democrat who represents an area of South Texas heavily affected by illegal immigration, told Politico that, “The way we’re doing it right now is catastrophic and is a recipe for disaster in the middle of a pandemic.”

But in some ways the disaster is already underway. Last month, Guatemalan and Mexican authorities broke up a caravan of some 9,000 Hondurans who were headed for the United States after two hurricanes and pandemic lockdowns decimated the economy there late last year. Another caravan is already forming in Honduras, according to Guatemalan officials, and smaller groups have been steadily streaming north, filling up shelters throughout Mexico.

Further south, migrants are on the move. . . .

All of this means U.S. border facilities will eventually be overwhelmed, and as the Biden administration’s “catch-and-release” policies come online, U.S. border communities will likewise be overwhelmed. It also means there will be an increase in border violence as smugglers and cartels look to cash in on the coming crisis.

Already last month, Mexican authorities discovered 19 bodies in the back of a burnt-out pickup truck in a remote part of the northern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, which borders Texas. So far, 14 of the dead have been identified as Guatemalan nationals, and authorities believe they were headed for the United States. They were all shot.

  1. I can tell you from my perspective that it will be a nightmare.
    I worked for the court system in Florida for many years. Illegal aliens clog the legal system with every crime unimaginable, from driving without a license to commiting sexual acts with an animal! (Really).
    They don’t speak English, requiring additional
    tramslators.
    These crimes, including incarcetation, costs the state billions.
    The families often need emergency housing which means that homeless Americans are overlooked.
    a
    And what about those people who are who are waiting to come here legally?

    I am not without compassion, but America is in crises now with so many people out of work & struggling.

    God bless President Trump for daring to put Americans first.

    Amen! 2
  2. Since democrats are funding common interests in foreign countries why not add Mexico to help support these migrants in their country instead of coming into USA. As far as citizenship for illegals I would say only to those who have been here and have proven their stay as honorable law abiding citizens who are working and raising their families as respectful American citizens. We are known as a land of opportunity worldwide and the desire to come here because of oppressive circumstances has been our origin. It should be progressive with 2 yr. visas to give them a chance for naturalization procedures just like legal immigrants have to do. As an legal immigrant myself I understand.

    Amen! 5
  3. Lord, please guard our country against evil and I pray that You will give our leaders wisdom , knowledge, and discernment concerning our immigration policy. Father, whatever the enemy plans I pray that You will turn it for good. I also pray for protection for American citizens and for border security. In Jesus holy Name, Amen.

    Amen! 16
  4. Father give us wisdom. Help us Father. Have mercy Lord. We need Your guidance in all of this. The world is in crisis; everywhere we turn, we see more and more complex complicated issues, more hurt, more pain, more desperation, destruction, and rebellion. Please Lord, let’s look to You. Only You have the answers. Guide us. Give wisdom to our leaders and help not make decisions with their own wisdom. Help communities dealing with immigration crisis. Help Texas, her officials and all Texans. Help the border states. Help desperate illegals and keep them safe. Help the other nations too and create peace & prosperity there. God have mercy and help us all. In Jesus name, Amen.

    Amen! 11
  5. its not the democrats or republicans its all those who are in agreement with evil that includes democrats and republicans and any other people group wolves in sheeps clothing from the highest in the nation to those in my and your town, village, city etc.evil working together on both ends there are good people in those places also just remember this is gods way of allowing evil to be exposed so my eyes and ears your eyes and ears to see and hear if all this didnt happen and to the degree it has and will happen it would not have been rooted out this is also for people who are not christian they equally need to see and hear trump is still president we live in a microwave world we want it not well we need tolearn and agree with the ways of god that includes me god is looooooooooooooooong suffering and right on time

    Amen! 6
  6. I’m devastated! Texas is being brought to its knees by this crazy, illegal, unhinged , Communist President in DC.
    & his party of crazies.
    We will never get rid of Covid if this continues, & old diseases will reserface as none of these people are vaccinated against anything!
    IT’S NO LONGER A COUNTRY I LOVE OR WANT TO LIVE IN!
    Texas is becoming a crapped out state like California &I hate it!
    We cannot care for our own, now we’re faced with thousands to live on the streets ( like California) because there’s no place for them to go & jobs are being lost by the thousands, so the “American Dream “ won’t exist for Americans much longer either!
    These people should be bussed to DC & given tents to camp on the Safely guarded Capital Grounds!!! Amen

    Amen! 17
  7. Can the State of Texas send the illegals back? Why does the federal government have more power than the State over that situation Perhaps less taxes should go to the Federal government so States can keep the money and use it as the State needs

    Amen! 15
