Treason without consequences—Joe Biden’s open border policy

Op-ed views and opinions expressed are solely those of the author.

The Biden administration is getting away with a massive outrage against our nation and its
citizens. Illegal immigration, which poses an existential threat to the U.S., is being enabled by
our government and no one seems the least bit interested in putting an end to it. Millions of
unvetted migrants are streaming across the border and being shipped to secret destinations in
direct violation of U.S. immigration law. This is nothing short of treasonous.

Mass illegal immigration, if unchecked, will eventually lead to the destruction of the two-party
system and the forced implementation of socialism by the left wing of the Democratic Party.
When millions of aliens are permitted to enter the U.S. illegally and sanctuary cities and states
can deliberately disregard federal statutes, the rule of law becomes a thing of the past and we
no longer have a country. Both houses of Congress have failed to acknowledge the threat, let
alone deal with it.

The Democrats believe that if they can add enough voters from among the immigrant
population, a Republican will never again be elected to office and the Dems can (a) re-write the
Constitution and (b) muscle through their Green New Deal or some other totalitarian socialist
nightmare. Obama’s ideological heirs will have a free hand in fulfilling his promise to
“fundamentally transform America.”

The plan of the Democratic Party is to use dubious forms of ID in order to give voting rights to
people who are euphemistically referred to as “undocumented immigrants.” If the intake of
illegals continues at the current rate, the Democratic Party will be in a position to impose
totalitarian rule on the United States.

Newsmax reports the statistics: “According to Customs and Border Protection, the agency
encountered 2,766,682 illegal migrants crossing the border in Fiscal Year 2022, an increase of
about 800,000 from 2021's record 1,956,519 encounters, and more than four times the 646,822 encounters in 2020.” Do the math. That amounts to nearly five million since Biden took over.

“By the end of Joe Biden’s first term,” said Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, “nearly 20% of all
Americans will be here illegally.” We can’t assimilate the 20 million or more illegals that have
smuggled themselves into the U.S. so far. Try to imagine what will happen if we take in another
20 million.

The economic and social costs of Biden’s open border policy will tear us apart. For the record,
here are the negatives:
• U.S. national security and public safety are being undermined by the avalanche of unvetted,
low-skilled, uneducated, third world economic migrants. The social costs of deadly drugs,
violent criminals, terrorists, and COVID spreaders constitute the worst public safety issue since
World War II. Biden has ceded control of huge swathes of the border to Mexican criminal cartels. U.S. deaths due to drug overdoses topped 100,000 for the first time ever, the vast majority from fentanyl imported from China and Mexico across our southern border by the cartels.

• The economic toll will destroy the U.S. economy and cost an untold number of jobs. At a time
when runaway inflation is driving millions of Americans into the poorhouse, we are being
forced to provide public assistance to millions of freeloading non-citizens. The open border
policy “is an inside attack on our democracy,” said former Trump policy adviser Stephen Miller.
“The president is working systematically to allow people to invade our country against our laws
to consume public benefits, to take American jobs, and to threaten public safety.”

• The extent of disruption in local communities will be catastrophic. Biden is shipping hordes of
illegals to secret destinations without informing the American public. The Pentagon has
confirmed that it is using Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas to fly illegal immigrants to
undisclosed parts of the country. We don’t know where they are going or what happens to
them when they get there. American communities are being torn apart by this deliberate influx
of refugees. Crime is rampant. The economic resources of local communities are being

• Biden’s open border policy weaponizes millions of unfortunate human beings for a political
purpose—the Democrats want more immigration on the assumption that most illegals will vote
Democratic. We are not doing America a favor by accepting an avalanche of new residents who
are unable to support themselves. We are not doing millions of aliens a favor by exposing them
to the horrors they must endure as they trek through Mexico and attempt to infiltrate our

Thumbing its nose at the public, the administration insists that the border is closed. Homeland
Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claimed that his message to migrants heading to the
U.S. is: “Do not come.” Then he declared: “Our border is not open.” He asserted his department
has “a handle” on migration. “We’re not letting people loose,” he said. More blatant lies have
never been uttered.

In direct contradiction to his statements and his sworn duty to uphold the law, Mayorkas has
encouraged millions to ignore our laws. “The vast majority of those people are single
adults—not families fleeing poverty,” said Liz Peek on Fox News, “and the total includes 40 men
on the terror watch list.” I just watched a group of illegals crossing the border waving the
Venezuelan flag and assaulting our border guards. They obviously have no respect for U.S.
sovereignty and believe they have a right to all the goodies they expect to receive once they get
across. Are these the people we want to welcome into our nation?

Donald Trump had the border under control. He understood that we cannot afford to admit
everyone who wants to come, nor is our government under any legal or moral obligation to
satisfy the desires of the entire planet. Trump's policy forced migrants to remain in Mexico while awaiting their immigration proceedings in the U.S. Reversing that policy and opening the
border is an act of treason. Article III of the U.S. Constitution states: “Treason against the
United States shall consist . . . in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” By
supporting sanctuary jurisdictions, refusing to pay for the wall, and allowing the border to
remain open, Biden is giving aid and comfort to aliens who show contempt for our laws and
sovereignty and who, by definition, are enemies of the United States.

What disturbs me the most about Biden’s open border policy is that our citizens don’t seem to
care. The administration doesn’t talk about it, the media won’t cover it, and the public doesn’t
seem to give a damn. An ABC News poll shows that the most important issues for registered
voters are the economy and inflation. Secondary issues are abortion, gun violence, and climate
change. Immigration does not even show up in the poll results. This lack of concern is a
message to the Biden gang that they can continue to demonstrate contempt for the U.S.
Constitution without consequence. Biden is weaponizing government agencies to attack his
political opponents. Freedom of speech is on the block. If we want to stop this march toward
totalitarianism, we have to find a way to reverse Biden’s immigration stance and we need to do
it now.
