Biden's Hands-Off Policy At The Border

Friday, September 17, 2021

While the morning TV news barrages us with endless videos of shots in arms and vials of vaccine rolling down assembly lines, the Biden administration is totally obsessed with their constantly changing masking/vaccine advisories. Absent on the ‘main stream’ media coverage is the humanitarian crisis at our Southern border which grows more disastrous by the day.

Apparently, VP Harris has thrown in the towel on that issue and been relegated to other far-left political concerns like propping up the failed governor of California.

One would think that the Administration’s focus on ‘all things COVID’ would include taking action on the uncontrolled influx of illegal immigrants, the tons of drugs, the gangs and the human trafficking. How about 10,000 people under a bridge at the border with insufficient water, sanitary facilities and medical screening? That’s a big deal.

Arguably, the Biden administration sees this uncontrolled and disastrous influx as an importation of potential Democratic voters. Nothing else makes sense to me. I would hope that the governors of the Southern border states would declare a COVID/humanitarian/law enforcement emergency and seal their respective borders to stop this madness.

Football notes from a Saturday … It is wonderful that “social media” is all bubbly in the belief Tennessee “almost” beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa this past weekend. But, in reality, the Vol faithful should thank their lucky stars for three most unusual quarters before the Tide, now ranked third in the land, won by 28 points (the betting line was 27½.)
