Joe Biden is more than happy to warmly welcome virtually any number of illegal immigrants into this country, but he’s now asking those migrants to slow their roll. With reports of a new migrant caravan coming from Honduras in hopes of being “caught and released” into the country, Biden officials are nervously chewing their fingernails and telling these migrants that it might take a while to sort things out.
“They need to understand they’re not going to be able to come into the United States immediately,” an unnamed Biden transition staffer told NBC News this week.
Note that he didn’t say that they wouldn’t be able to come into the U.S. at all; he’s just saying, “Guys, guys, we’re just getting our feet underneath us. Give us a few months, and we’ll have this border door propped open for anyone and everyone!”
Or to put it in the actual words of the official: “The situation at the border isn’t going to be transformed overnight. We have to provide a message that health and hope is on the way, but coming right now does not make sense for their own safety…while we put into place processes that they may be able to access in the future.”
Health and hope is on the way! Not, er, for American citizens necessarily, but for these other people who have absolutely no claim to U.S. rights, land, or freedoms? Oh yes, the cavalry is coming.
In recent remarks, acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said, “I mean, you saw the ‘Trump effect’ when President Trump came into office. You’re going to see the ‘Biden effect’ as well. And it’s going to be the opposite. And they’re feeding that, and it’s really bad for America. It’s going to be a humanitarian problem, particularly in the midst of Covid.”
But hey, at least it won’t happen right away! Biden’s telling them to slow down. Bide their time. We’ve got four long years to stuff as many illegal aliens into America as the country can handle, so what’s the big rush?
But it’s fine. Just take it from Univision activist/reporter Jorge Ramos.
“There’s little doubt that more immigrants will start coming once Joe Biden becomes president,” Ramos wrote in The New York Times. “And that’s OK. The United States has a historic opportunity to regain its image as a country of immigrants.”
