Illegal Immigrants Cross Border, Issue Devastating Message for Joe Biden: Report

Western Journal

As the crisis at the United States’ southern border drags on, President Joe Biden and his administration have attempted to distance themselves from the problem. Unfortunately for them, many illegal immigrants are putting the blame for their actions directly on Biden’s shoulders.

“We thank him very much,” migrants in Yuma, Arizona, told the Daily Caller this month, according to a report Wednesday.

As a general rule, it is not a particularly good look for a president to be praised by criminals for enabling their crimes.

Daily Caller contributor Jorge Ventura said he encountered migrants in the Yuma sector from a multitude of countries, including Haiti, Mexico, Cuba and even Uzbekistan.

He reported most of the migrants entered the United States from Los Algodones, Mexico, via the Colorado River through an area known as “The Gap.”

In August, Border Patrol agents encountered 17,097 migrants in the Yuma sector alone, according to Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies. That is a more than 2,000 percent increase from August 2020, when agents encountered just 694 migrants.

Ventura tweeted on Oct. 8 that the flow of migrants into Yuma was “constant.”

In addition, he said he saw a bus full of Nicaraguan migrants being dropped off on the Mexico side of the Colorado River before crossing the U.S. border.

“Just witnessed a bus on the Mexican side drop off Nicaraguan migrants at the Colorado River and they crossed illegally into Yuma, Arizona,” Ventura said. “Migrants say they took this bus from Mexicali. Here is a picture of that ticket.”

On Tuesday, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina visited Yuma and said the scene was every bit as bad as described.

“There’s a belief that if you get here and turn yourself in, you never leave America. … Yuma, Arizona, is going to be the next Del Rio,” Graham said, referring to the Texas border town that’s been besieged by illegal immigrants.

By the migrants’ own admission, the Biden administration is to thank for the current crisis. As illegal immigrants continue to discover more loopholes along the border, Biden becomes more and more culpable.

Is Biden to blame for the crisis at the border?

During former President Donald Trump’s tenure, he was accused of behaving too harshly toward migrants seeking refuge in the United States. The truth of that accusation is debatable, but at the very least his strategy was effective.

When the Daily Caller asked one Colombian migrant whether he had attempted to illegally cross the border during the Trump administration, he said he “didn’t even want to try.”

Now, migrants feel they will be welcomed with open arms at the border, and they are thanking Biden once they get here.

That contrast is a concerning picture of the state of our country under Biden.

Vicious Tweet By Alec Mocking Cop for ‘Wrongful’ Shooting Resurfaces After Baldwin Kills Woman on Set

Western Journal

Published

Those who live by the sword die by the sword.

Alec Baldwin certainly lived out this biblical proverb on Thursday.

The Hollywood veteran accidentally shot and killed a cinematographer while filming a movie in Sante Fe, New Mexico. During filming, Baldwin was required to fire a gun loaded with blanks. As it turns out, the gun discharged either shrapnel or a bullet, killing 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins and injuring the film’s director, Joel Souza.

So where does the Christian proverb come into play?

Back in 2017, Baldwin excoriated a police officer for shooting a violent suspect.

“I wonder how it must feel to wrongfully kill someone,” Baldwin tweeted along with the Los Angeles Times’ coverage of the shooting.

However, the officer was exonerated of any wrongdoing.

According to the Times, a Huntington Beach police officer was seen struggling with a man outside a convenience store.

Amid the struggle, the man pulled an object from the officer’s utility belt, which prompted the officer to step back and begin firing.

A bystander who captured the incident on video confirmed to the Times that the suspect started the fight after the officer approached his vehicle.

The officer was identified as Eric Esparza by The Orange County Register. Both the city of Huntington Beach and a federal judge determined the shooting was justified.

The suspect, 27-year-old Dillan Tabares, was believed to have beaten an 80-year-old man to death only three days prior.

Nevertheless, at a time when Esparza was likely at his lowest, having just been forced to kill a man, Baldwin tweeted his condemnation.

WARNING: The following contains graphic language that some readers will find offensive.

“Defend himself? By shooting the guy? What kind of a f**king idiot are you?” Baldwin wrote in a subsequent tweet.

Now, Baldwin is in nearly the same position Esparza was in four years ago. He is likely devastated at having been involved in such a tragic accident.

Hopefully, in the future, Baldwin won’t assume that every police officer involved in a shooting is either bloodthirsty or incompetent.

He now understands the pain many officers carry with them every single day.

Buttigieg Tells Americans to Get Used to ‘Disruptions,’ ‘Shocks to the System’

Western Journal

Published

on

Having less is just the way life goes in President Joe Biden’s America, according to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Buttigieg, who was on paternity leave for months as the supply chain crisis intensified, made the interview rounds this week and put a happy face on the crisis.

In comments Wednesday, he indicated Americans will need to get used to delays and potentially seeing empty shelves for the foreseeable future.

“There are going to be disruptions and shocks to the system as long as the pandemic continues,” he said, according to Reuters.

Rating firm Moody’s said Wednesday that the supply chain issues plaguing America will likely not subside any time soon, and shortages, higher transportation costs and higher prices will ripple through the economy.

But Buttigieg found a sunny side in all that when he popped in for a chat on “The View.”

Is the Biden administration totally incompetent?

“Americans have more money in their pockets compared to a year ago,” Buttigieg said, according to ABC News.

“Where they used to maybe spend it on going to shows or travel, they’ve been more likely to spend it on things, which is why actually we have a record number of goods coming through our ports.”

“Retail sales are through the roof, that’s part of why we have this challenge.”

Buttigieg also put in a brief plug for the infrastructure bill House Democrats have been holding hostage for weeks.

“There’s no easy fix. There’s no magic wand, but there are a lot of things we can do,” Buttigieg said. “We’re relying on infrastructure that was built decades ago, sometimes a century ago.”

His comments on “The View” echoed those made during his Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Certainly a lot of the challenges that we’ve been experiencing this year will continue into next year. But there are both short-term and long-term steps that we can take to do something about it,” Buttigieg told host Jake Tapper.

“Look, part of what’s happening isn’t just the supply side, it’s the demand side. Demand is off the charts. This is one more example of why we need to pass the infrastructure bill,” he continued.

“There are $17 billion in the President’s infrastructure plan for ports alone and we need to deal with these long-term issues that have made us vulnerable to these kinds of bottlenecks when there are demand fluctuations, shocks and disruptions like the ones that have been caused by the pandemic.”

Tucker Carlson Tonight” host Tucker Carlson said Tuesday that instead of leaders telling Americans they can fix the problems of the nation, the Biden administration is telling Americans to live with them.

Here’s how Carlson summed up the trend: “As your quality of life declines, you are instructed not to notice.”

Slamming an Op-Ed published by The Washington Post that scolded Americans for “[ranting] about short-staffed stores and supply chain woes,” Carlson made that into a symbol of what’s wrong with the nation.

“So if you don’t like the fact the shelves are bare in your local store, don’t throw a fit. Don’t be an entitled little tool. Lower your expectations. What did you expect in America? Come on. Bread lines, we’ve always had bread lines. It’s sort of charmingly retro, these bread lines. Don’t complain as your life becomes worse and as your country degrades,” he said.

“That’s the message, and not surprisingly, that message is coming directly from the people who are making your life worse and destroying the country. That would, of course, would be the White House.”
