‘How to Destroy a Nation’

By Chris Wright

I didn’t expect to be back to the subject of the border so soon, but a lot has happened since I last reported to you on the nation’s immigration crisis one week ago.

Since then, we learned Panama apprehended 52 people associated with al Qaeda Islamic terrorism who were headed to the U.S. southern border. They were among 100,000 people moving through Panama on their way north. There are separate reports of a caravan numbering thousands massing at the Mexico-Guatemala border, and 20,000 Haitians staging in Colombia to make the journey to the U.S.

It was also reported this week the Biden administration is secretly flying unaccompanied alien minors who crossed the border illegally to small airports around the country.  The border patrol encountered over 18,000 such minors in July and another 18,000 in August – over six times as many as a year ago.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the secret flights, then proceeded to make a joke out of them.  The flights are not in the middle of the night, she said, just “early” in the morning.  The Biden administration and government agencies involved are keeping the details secret, and not answering basic questions like how many, why at night, where exactly, at what cost, or how long this will go on.  Another good question: why isn’t the administration verifying the identities of the people picking the minors up at the airport?

lf the threats to national security, the migrant caravans, and the secrecy don’t bother you, maybe this will:

It was also reported this week the Biden administration believes tens of millions of people will be displaced by climate change over the next 20 or 30 years.  The administration’s priority is “strengthening global protection for these displaced individuals and groups.”  Indeed, the report said affording such protection is a “compelling national interest” and said the U.S. must prepare for a growing number of migrants in coming years.  Translation: not just open borders.  Open-ended open borders.

OK, so the Biden administration believes flying 18,000 minors around the country a month isn’t enough, catching 1.7 million illegal border-crossers a year isn’t enough, and the most generous legal immigration system in the world isn’t enough.  We must open up our country to tens of millions more who will be trying to resettle here in coming years.

I’m remembering the video of Dick Lamm, the Democrat former Governor of Colorado saying, if you want to destroy a nation, start with no longer enforcing its immigration laws and turning it into a multicultural country full of people who won’t assimilate.  I’m also remembering the economist Milton Friedman who said you can’t have open borders and an open welfare system at the same time, it can’t possibly work.

Thankfully, there are still people in positions of authority who view all of this as madness and are doing something about it.   Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced plans to send 5,000 National Guard troops to the border and a Texas sheriff is deputizing local citizens to secure his county’s border.

Some years ago, the Supreme Court knocked down Arizona’s efforts to enforce federal immigration laws on its own.  Recently, liberal Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer spoke out against the Democrats’ court-packing plan.  Let’s hope the Supreme Court and others have come to their senses and now oppose the Democrats’ country-packing plan.  If not enough people come to their senses, we will surely destroy a nation.
