As the media has the entire world focused on the war in Ukraine, and the sheeple are being conditioned to ignore our own border crisis, the invasion of our southern border by illegal immigrants continues, wave after wave.
The Constitution requires the President of the United States to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” – Article II, Section 3
It is his duty to enforce immigration laws that are on the books, yet it’s somehow being completely ignored, all to the delight of the “woke” media. Did the DNC discover some loophole? Have they misinterpreted the laws? Let’s examine a few actual immigration laws that have been broken on a continuing basis.
Let’s start with 8 U.S. Code § 1201 – Issuance of visas 
(a) Immigrants, nonimmigrants
(1)Under the conditions hereinafter prescribed and subject to the limitations prescribed in this chapter or regulations issued thereunder, a Consular Officer may issue –
(a) to an immigrant who has made proper application therefor, an immigrant visa which shall consist of the application provided for in section 1202 of this title, visaed by such consular officer, and shall specify the foreign state, if any, to which the immigrant is charged, the immigrant’s particular status under such foreign state, the preference, immediate relative, or special immigrant classification to which the alien is charged, the date on which the validity of the visa shall expire, and such additional information as may be required;
In other words, each and every immigrant entering the United States must apply for and receive an immigrant visa through the U.S. Consulate, giving true and accurate information as to his/her nationality, and other identifying data.
8 U.S. Code § 1188 – Admission of temporary H-2A workers 
(a) Conditions for Approval of H-2A Petitions
(1) A petititon to import an alien as an H-2A worker may not be approved by the Attorney General unless the petitioner has applied to the Secretary of Labor for a certification that –
(a) There are not sufficient workers who are able, willing, and qualified, and who will be available at the time and place needed, to perform the labor or services involved in the petition, and
(b) The employment of the alien in such labor or services will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of workers in the United States similarly employed.
So, we are supposed to believe that the Attorney General of the United States can prove that every H-2A worker is not affecting the wages of U.S. citizens who could be employed to perform the same work being done by immigrants.
8 U.S. Code § 1182 – Inadmissible aliens 
(a) Classes of Aliens Inadmissible for Visas or Admission
Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, aliens who are inadmissible under the following paragraphs are ineligible to receive visas and ineligible to be admitted to the United States:
(1) Health-related grounds
(2) Criminal and related grounds
(3)Security and related grounds
(4) Public Charge
(A) In general – Any alien who, in the opinion of the Consular Officer at the time of application for a visa, or in the opinion of the Attorney General at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, is likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible, with consideration of the following factors
(III) family status
(IV) assets, resources, and financial status, and
(V) education and skills
(5) Labor Certification and Qualifications for Certain Immigrants
(6) Illegal Entrants and Immigration Violators
(A) Aliens present without admission or parole –
(i) In general – An alien present in the United States without being admitted or paroled, or who arrives in the United States at any time or place other than as designated by the Attorney General, is inadmissible.
Obviously, the Biden administration is not listening to CBP agents on the ground at the border, warning of illegal aliens entering the country with health issues, criminal records, and security threats. Can we assume the Attorney General of the United States has complete knowledge of every immigrant entering the country? How many of the 2.1 million illegal immigrants who have entered the country in Biden’s first year have been designated as inadmissible? (I’ll take the “under”)
Those are just a few examples of the statutes on the books that are being totally ignored by the Biden administration. And no one is doing a damn thing about it. Essentially, the President has failed to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed”, in violation of the Constitution.
I must also mention the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 , passed and signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The law abolished the National Origins Formula, which had been the basis of U.S. immigration policy since the 1920’s. The intent was to eliminate discrimination against eastern Europeans, and Asians, which had strict quotas. The National Origins Formula favored northern and western Europeans and was considered racist by some politicians. Interestingly, the bill was supported by northern Democrats and Republicans but strongly opposed by southern Democrats. Who were the real racists then?
Statistics gathered by the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan fact tank,  found that migrant encounters more than doubled in all nine sectors along the U.S. Mexico border in fiscal 2021, compared to fiscal 2020 (the fiscal years ends in September).
All of the following is actual data, and is presented just to establish factual truth. Anything you hear or read that skews these facts is propaganda.
The largest numerical increase occurred in the Rio Grande sector, the easternmost section of the Texas border, with 549,077 encounters last fiscal year, up from 90,206 in 2020. The largest proportional increase occurred in the Yuma sector, part of Arizona, where encounters increased thirteenfold, from 8,804 in fiscal 2020 to 114,488 in fiscal 2021.
In September 2021, 54% of encounters ended in expulsion, down from 74% in February 2021, Biden’s first full month in office.
Encounters of single adults rose from 317,864 in 2020 to 1,063,285 in fy 2021.
Encounters of family groups rose from 52,230 in 2020 to 451,087 in fy 2021.
Encounters of unaccompanied children rose from 30,557 in 2020 to 144,834 in 2021.
Mexico accounted for the largest percentage of the migrant influx, with 608.037 encounters, or 37% of the total. The remaining 1,051,169 encounters (63%) were from countries other than Mexico, mainly Honduras (308,931), Guatemala (279,033), and El Salvador (95,930), by far the highest total for non-Mexican nationals in CBP records dating back to 2000.
The latest CBP data for fiscal year 2022 on migrant encounters by month:
OCT 2021 – 164,841
NOV 2021 – 174,870
DEC 2021 – 179,256
JAN 2022 – 154,745
FEB 2022 – 164,973
If we calculate the total illegal immigrant encounters from Joe Biden’s first full month in office, as his first 12 months (FEB 2021 thru JAN 2022), we get a total of 2,111,948 encounters. Those are just the illegals encountered. That doesn’t include those who may have successfully crossed undetected, and those illegals tend to have a good reason not to be caught. Some of whom are trafficking lethal illegal narcotics, such as fentanyl, which have killed over 100,000 young people in the past year.
Just to put things in perspective, the liberal left and the mainstream media have everyone in an uproar over the Russian invasion of the Ukraine. We can agree that we should be concerned about the sovereignty of the Ukraine and the atrocities inflicted on their citizens. The massing of 150,000 Russian troops near the border was a red flag for the NATO allies. However, in contrast, no one was alarmed at the monthly invasion of our own southern border by illegal immigrants. In Biden’s first year, January 2022, was the lowest number of encounters by the CBP, with over 154,000 illegals encountered. July and August of 2021 both had well over 200,000 encounters. But, hold your tongue dear citizen, anyone mentioning the crisis at our southern border will be labelled a racist and stigmatized by the “woke” mob.
Maybe race has nothing to do with it, as with many of their favorite positions.
Maybe American citizens just want to feel safe in their own country.
Maybe American citizens want to preserve their values and traditions.
Maybe American citizens don’t think it’s a good idea for our country 30 trillion dollars in debt, to support the entire world’s population.
Maybe American citizens don’t want foreign nationals influencing the elections of representatives they trust to protect their lives, liberties, and pursuits of happiness.
Maybe the only reason the DNC is pushing for this massive influx of foreign nationals, legal and otherwise, is to promise them free stuff and secure their vote in order to maintain Democrat control of the levers of power.
