Crisis On The Southern Border: Only The Tip of Biden’s Immigration Iceberg
It is commonsense that after a major flood disaster recovery begins with cleaning up the mess. Because of the policies of the Biden administration America has been flooded with unprecedented numbers of illegal aliens–yet no attention is being given to the need or the means to clean up the mess created by this human tsunami that undermines national security, public safety and public health.
The crisis on the southern border has grown so huge that it can no longer be ignored by the mainstream media. Records continue to be set and then broken as ever more aliens from countries around the world head for that dangerous border encouraged by the policies of the Biden Administration as carried out by the Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.
However, Biden’s destruction of immigration law enforcement is hardly limited to the dangerous Mexican border, however neither the media nor politicians will even mention these other elements of the immigration system that are part and parcel of Biden’s “immigration iceberg.” by the media or by our political leaders from either party perhaps because they are among the Profiteers of Biden Administration’s Open Borders Policy or reaccepting massive campaign contribution (bribes?) from those profiteers.
So, while the media and the politicians, including most Republicans, remain focused on the 2,000 mile disastrous U.S./Mexican border, they blithely ignore 98% of America’s borders as well as the need for meaningful interior enforcement of our immigration laws.
(The United States actually has more than 100,000 miles of border when you consider that the U.S. Canadian border is about 4,000 miles long and the United States also has about 95,000 miles of coastline.)
Additionally, the United States has well over 100 International airports located in virtually all 50 states and smugglers frequently land their airplanes on makeshift landing strips within the United States.
Illegal aliens and contraband are flooding into the United States in a wide variety of means and locations that completely bypass the Southern border.
Consider these two recent Justice Department (DOJ) pres releases about the U.S./Canadian border:
On July 29, 2022 the Department of Justice issued a press release, Quebec Man Pleads Guilty to Conspiracy to Import and Distribute Fentanyl that began with these paragraphs:
Jason Joey Berry, 39, of Montreal, Canada, pleaded guilty today to conspiracy to distribute fentanyl and import it into the United States, resulting in serious bodily injury and death. The criminal conspiracy involved distributing fentanyl and other similar substances from Canada and China into the United States, resulting in 15 overdoses, four of which were fatal.
According to court documents, Berry arranged the distribution of fentanyl and fentanyl analogues to the United States and elsewhere while incarcerated in a Canadian prison. Berry led the conspiracy in Canada with another inmate, Daniel Vivas Ceron, 41, who pleaded guilty in July 2019 to continuing criminal enterprise, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances and controlled substance analogues resulting in serious bodily injury and death, and money laundering. This investigation started in North Dakota on Jan. 3, 2015, with the overdose death in Grand Forks, North Dakota, of Bailey Henke.
After listing the pedigrees on more than a dozen coconspirators in this case, the DOJ press release noted:
This case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Grand Forks Narcotics Task Force, IRS Criminal Investigation, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Portland Police Bureau – Narcotics and Organized Crime Division, Oregon/Idaho HIDTA Interdiction Task Force, Oregon State Police, and the Grand Forks Police Department. The Justice Department’s Office of International Affairs provided valuable assistance.
Now consider this DOJ press release that was also issued on July 29, 2022, Leading ISIS Media Figure and Foreign Fighter Sentenced to Life Imprisonment.
The subtitle of that press release, provides a bit more critical information:
MohammedK halifa Executed Two Syrian Soldiers on Behalf of ISIS and served as the English-Speaking Narrator on Exceptionally Violent ISIS Propaganda Videos.
Here is how this DOJ press release began:
A Saudi-born Canadian citizen was sentenced today to life imprisonment for conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), a designated foreign terrorist organization, resulting in death.
According to court documents, Mohammed Khalifa, aka Abu Ridwan Al-Kanadi and Abu Muthanna Al-Muhajir, 39, served in prominent roles within ISIS starting in 2013 and continuing until his capture by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in January 2019, following a firefight between ISIS fighters and the SDF. In addition to serving as a fighter and personally executing two Syrian soldiers on behalf of ISIS, Khalifa served as a lead translator in ISIS’s propaganda production and the English-speaking narrator on multiple violent ISIS videos.
When was the last time you heard anyone talk about the Canadian border or report on smuggling along that 4,000 mile border?
Furthermore, cleaning up the mess created by the massive flood of aliens requires effective interior enforcement of our immigration laws- this mission is vested in ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), yet even Republican politicians such as Senator Ted Cruz and Congressman Pat Fallon, who profess to oppose the open borders policies of the Biden administration have neglected to call for more ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents while calling for the hiring of massive numbers of Border Patrol agents to secure the southern border. without even mentioning the northern border or other means by which aliens and contraband such as fentanyl and other dangerous drugs enter the United States each and every day.
The Border Patrol’s primary mission is the interdiction of aliens and contraband being smuggled into the United State to evade the inspections process conducted at ports of entry.
These Republicans all ignore what should be obvious- while it is vital to prevent more flooding, in the aftermath of a flood, the focus should be on cleaning up the mess as well as on securing all methods of entry that enable illegal aliens and contraband to flow into the United States and not just the Mexican border.
To this point, on August 8, 2022 CNS News reported, Texas Republican: ‘I Want to Hire 87,000 New Border Patrol Agents’.
Rep. Fallon, in point of fact, is the Texas Republican referenced in the title of that report that began with this excerpt:
(CNSNews.com) – “I don’t want to hire 87,000 new IRS agents, I want to hire 87,000 new Border Patrol agents,” Rep. Pat Fallon (R-Texas) told the Fox Business network on Monday morning.
Cruz, on the other hand made headlines last year when the Boston Globe reported, Senator Ted Cruz wants to create immigration ports of entry in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Biden’s insane policies have enabled millions of aliens to enter the United States under the guise of seeking political asylum when, in reality, the great majority of them will not qualify for asylum and will almost invariably evade immigration law enforcement, aided and abetted by “Sanctuary Policies” promulgated in states and cities across the United States.
This overwhelms the system by which applications for immigration benefits, including political asylum. Consequently the overwhelmed adjudications officers are not able to properly screen these applications. Fraud will go undetected and, as I wrote in my article. However, as I noted in my recent article, NYC Mayor Adams’ Immigration Theater of the Absurd:
Most of these illegal aliens are not political refugees but are simply fleeing poverty and crime in their home countries. Political asylum is only granted to aliens who can prove Credible Fear that because of their race, religion, ethnicity, political ideology or other such factors face persecution, or worse in their home countries. Once again Adams has opted to use language to obfuscate the truth about illegal immigration and provide illegal aliens with a level of legitimacy to which they are not truly entitled.
This is the equivalent of describing a homeless person with no job and no means of support as “An aspiring millionaire” because he/she purchased a lottery ticket!
Reportedly hundreds of thousands of other illegal aliens have managed to evade the Border Patrol as that beleaguered agency has become overwhelmed by the human tsunami of aliens presenting themselves to the Border Patrol to make their claims for asylum. The identities of these so-called “got-aways” is unknown as are the reasons that they entered surreptitiously, likely because they are fugitives, criminals or terrorists.
Although some of the aliens stopped by the Border Patrol are listed in the terror watch list- most terrorists are not on any lists. It only took 19 terrorists on September 11, 2001 and to kill more people than were lost to the Japanese Fleet at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and the death count from the attacks of 9/11 counts to climb as more victims die because of their exposure to toxins that were released when the World Trade Canter was reduced to a mountain of rubble.
It must be presumed that the great majority of these aliens who have been dispersed across our nation will not show up for hearings when they will be required to do so. ICE agents will be needed to find them- but in this game of “hide and seek” there are precious few ICE agents (only about 6,000 for the entire country) and because they are also charged with enforcing laws that have no relevance to immigration, far fewer will be available to seek millions of illegal aliens. ICE agent are also supposed to conduct investigations into employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens, participate in multi-agency task forces such as the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) and the Organized Crime, Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) where I spent the final ten years of my 30 year career.
Finally, ICE agents are supposed to conduct investigations into immigration fraud.
In point of fact, the very first time I appeared before a Congressional hearing was on May 20, 1997 that was predicated on two terror attacks carried out in the United States in 1993 at the CIA and the First World Trade Center bombing. The topic of that hearing that was conducted by the House Immigration Subcommittee, was Visa Fraud And Immigration Benefits Application Fraud.
Indeed, the 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony, identified immigration fraud and visa fraud as the key methods of entry and embedding exploited by international terrorists, and not just the 19 terrorists who so savagely attacked the United States on September 11, 2001.
I addressed the nexus between immigration fraud and national security and terrorism in my article, Immigration Fraud: Lies That Kill.
Nevertheless, as I wrote in an article last year, Biden Administration Plans To Protect Immigration Fraudsters.
The last words for my commentary today will be provided by a section of the United States Constitution, specifically, Article IV, Section 4 which states:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
