Among President Biden’s flurry of mind boggling executive orders is one that rescinds Trump’s order to keep China from being involved in America’s power grid.
Biden also intends to go back to the failed Obama “catch and release” immigration program, instead of keeping migrants on the Mexican side of the border while their claims to enter the US are being processed. Biden had a phone call with Mexico’s President, who, while trying to remain diplomatic, seemingly conveyed that he agreed with Trump’s plan. What Biden denounced as Trump’s “draconian immigration policies” actually helped both the US and Mexico. They kept illegal immigrants from being released in America, never to show up for their court dates, and they discouraged migrants from Central America from crossing through Mexico to get here.
Biden’s genius plan for stopping illegal immigration is to send $4 billion of our tax money to Central America to address the “root causes” of illegal immigration. I’m sure that money will end up going only into the most efficient and productive areas to aid the people, and will not be pocketed by corrupt officials and powerful drug gangs. A policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute called $4 billion a nice start, but only that. Spoken like a true Democrat.
Or maybe Biden’s genius plan is to kill so many jobs and take away so many freedoms in America that migrants will decide they’d rather just stay in Honduras or El Salvador. If so, he’s certainly off to a good start.
