Insanity Reigns

Om Wednesday, The Washington Examiner posted an article about some of the benefits given to those who cross our border illegally.

The article reports:

The Biden administration is granting thousands of illegal border crossers one-year renewable permits to stay in the United States to apply for asylum, a process that can take years.

What’s more, according to a new report, they are allowed to receive Social Security cards, paving the way to government benefits and jobs.

Immigration expert Todd Bensman, who has been embedded in the process for the Center for Immigration Studies, said in a new report that an estimated 34,000 recent border crossers have already been distributed around the country with the documents.

He said that if the migrant qualifies to stay, and most do under the Biden rules, they are given a COVID test then documents to stay before being guided to a privately run service that buses them around the country.

I guess this is one way to bankrupt Social Security–how many illegal immigrants will be claiming benefits without having put much into the system?

The article concludes:

Before Biden took office, nearly all asylum-seekers and potential border crossers stayed in Mexico while their papers were processed. Many turned around and went home. Former President Donald Trump, with Mexico’s help, instituted that process because a majority of those who had entered the country during prior administrations never appeared for their court hearings on their application.

Now the older system is back in operation, said Bensman, and migrants are being sent to cities in Texas, Florida, New Jersey, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, and Kentucky.

“On the bank of the Rio Grande in Del Rio recently,” Bensman wrote, he “happened across a family of four who had just crossed and turned themselves in to a Border Patrol agent. They were seated on the ground next to his agency truck. Asked where they were from and where they expected to go next, the parents answered that they were from Venezuela and were on their way to join relatives in Florida.”

“They should be there inside of a week.”

We are giving away our country while neglecting the needs of America’s veterans and America’s poor.
