Every month America now gets a new city the size of Pittsburgh – that’s how many migrants are pouring across our borders. But the REAL sickener? Neither Biden OR Trump want to fix it… and the reason will outrage you

Venezuelan migrant gangsters in New York City drag a 62-year-old woman behind their moped and slam her into a bike rack before making off with her cell phone.

The Denver Public Schools Department is suddenly in an $18 million hole after more than 2,800 migrant children were recently enrolled.

Poor African-American families in Boston are being pulled out of a community center so the city can house dozens of desperate immigrants living out of Logan International Airport.

“You don’t give a (expletive) about those born and raised here,” a man yelled at guards outside the gate.

Can you blame him?

The same anger explodes in the south of Chicago, where hundreds of temporary tent cities are protesting in their neighborhoods – or in Brooklyn, where high schools are being repurposed as migrant shelters.

Vignettes of a country tearing itself apart – politically and functionally – due to a crushing crisis at the southern border.

And the only thing more appalling than the state of America’s badly broken immigration system is the devastating reality that the country’s political leaders refuse to come together to fix it.

“The only reason the border isn’t secure is because of Trump and his MAGA Republican friends,” President Joe Biden outrageously claimed from the White House on Tuesday, putting the nail in the coffin of America’s most important immigration reform bill in a generation.

But the simple sick truth is that neither party’s presidential nominee really wanted this bill to pass.

Both would rather play a deeply cynical political game that gambles on the odds that they voters will blame the other side as the crisis rages on without end.

December 2023 was the worst month on record for illegal crossings on the US-Mexico border, reaching 300,000 people for the first time ever.

That’s the equivalent of the entire population of Pittsburgh.

By some estimates, under Biden, the illegal immigration population in America has nearly doubled to a staggering 20 million.

The immigration reform bill negotiated by a bipartisan group of senators wouldn’t have solved every problem in the US immigration system — but it was good enough to secure the support of the US Border Patrol union, which President Donald Trump in 2020 endorsed.

“While not perfect, the Border Act of 2024 is a step in the right direction and is much better than the current status quo,” said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council.

The $118 billion national security package — which also included funding for the wars in Ukraine and Israel — would have reformed lax asylum laws that allow almost anyone to arrive at the border and claim entry.

Millions have taken advantage of this loophole knowing they will be released domestically, and it will be years before their claims are adjudicated.

Many never return for their court appearance.

And the bill would have scaled back this administration’s gross corruption of an obscure humanitarian parole program, which Biden exploited to allow 1.5 million people into the US starting in 2021.

Instead, Biden and Trump will play a deeply cynical political game, gambling on the chance that their voters will blame the other side as the crisis rages on without end.  (Above) Migrants in New York City attack police officers

So how — you might ask — can this bipartisan deal be dead on arrival in Congress?

President Biden does not want a solution to the border crisis; he wants a political salve.

On the one hand, he is desperately trying to shore up his support with swing voters upset about him unleashing the worst mass migration crisis in history — and the accompanying crime and overcrowding.

But on the other hand, Biden is running scared of the young radical progressives who are already mad at him for being old and siding with Israel against Hamas.

They think the unfettered flow of illegal immigrants is just fine and will be upset if the Democrats do something to stop it.

So Biden acts as if he wants to pass the bill, but does everything to sabotage it.

How else do you explain that he sent Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to be a primary cheerleader for the bill?

Mayorkas has the least credibility of anyone in Washington after claiming for years that the border is “secure.”

“The bipartisan deal in the Senate is tough, fair and takes meaningful steps to address the challenges our country faces after decades of congressional inaction,” Mayorkas tweeted Sunday night when the bill’s text was released .

Good strategy, Alejandro.

Insult the members whose votes you need!

If Biden really wanted to pass comprehensive immigration reform, he would have stepped up to the podium in the White House, admitted his mistakes and promised to reverse his disastrous Day One decisions that led to this crisis.

Biden campaigned in 2020 on a promise to give health care to illegal immigrants, and on his first day in office he repealed every Trump-era border protection provision (many he now claims he will reinstate).

In September 2021, this president falsely accused mounted Border Patrol agents of beating Haitian migrants who crossed the border illegally in Del Rio, Texas.

The entire episode – a hoax perpetrated from the presidential podium.

More than a year later, the agents were cleared of any wrongdoing and Biden never apologized.

For three years he claimed the border was secure. Now he admits that it wasn’t safe for ‘ten years’ and that ‘MAGA Republicans’ are to blame.

To quote a man, that’s malarkey.

Of course, the GOP is not blameless here.

They rightly convinced the American people that the country was being ‘invaded’.

But now, at the behest of Donald Trump, they’ve walked away from something that might help, even incrementally, because the presumptive GOP nominee doesn’t want to give his weakened opponent a political lifeline.

Today, Trump has the upper hand on immigration. The poll is clear. But after you walk away from this deal, will that benefit remain?

Time will tell.

There is a large middle section of the American electorate that wants more policymaking and less bigotry.

They should dig a deep hole and stay there until 2025.

Republicans have thrown away a shot at once-in-a-generation changes to the immigration system, reforms that Democrats never and may never agree to again.

The sad truth is that Biden and Trump have both calculated that the immigration crisis will be a net positive for them this fall.

They’re just two old scapegoats butting heads – competing to sit on top of a disaster.
