Sherriff Says “Americans Should Be Angry and Outraged” Over Biden’s Immigration Policies
Maryland’s Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins spoke with Fox and Friends host Steve Doocy recently, warning, “Americans should be angry and outraged,” over Biden’s immigration policies. Why? He argues Biden has “effectively and functionally dismantled ICE, basically telling the agents to stand down.”
Under Biden’s new rules, enforcement virtually disappears, with immigrants no longer deported over felony crimes like DUI, tax evasion, or assault. The Biden administration’s goal is to encourage illegal immigrants to illegally cross our borders, find work without fear of deportation or being separated from their family.
However, the policy changes will result in disaster for the nation’s safety. If those crossing the southern border can do so without consequences, what will keep Mexico’s drug cartel leaders from expanding their territory north of their border? What will slow down human trafficking of women and children across international boundaries? What will stop the spread of COVID-19 from other nations into our own nation?
In a word, nothing. There is no plan to stop criminal activity or test border jumpers for the coronavirus. As Sheriff Jenkins reported, “These types of laws lead to more victims of crime, more violent crime, gangs infiltrating this country.”
Even in areas where Trump’s border wall already exists, there is little hope of slowing illegal activity without enforcement. Without following through on laws, it will be as if they do not exist.
America’s border patrol already handles 3,000-3,500 illegal border crossers per day. Once people realize there will be no consequences for entering the nation illegally, we can expect this number to spike exponentially.
What will be the toll on America with one million-plus illegal immigrants joining our communities EVERY YEAR during Biden’s administration? Most people think in terms of job loss or strains on community services, but there is much more to consider.
Many of these immigrants will include families with children. Kids who are brought here with no choice of their own aren’t to blame, but these children will soon show up in greater numbers in public schools. Many will be unable to speak the language and will slow down the progress of the entire class. Health issues may also be a concern, particularly if immigrant students have had no health checks and are missing standard vaccinations.
And that’s on top of the fact, that they’re parents aren’t likely paying any taxes to help cover the cost of their schooling in these communities.
And where will all these new neighbors live? No one is really sure, but starting at a lower income level will require renting or buying in low-income neighborhoods already under significant strains. Both of which will push up prices that Americans have to deal with.
There is also a connection between immigrant jobs and Biden’s push for a $15 nationwide minimum wage. Expect to see pressure for increased jobs outside the system, paying immigrants less to avoid paying Americans more.
Safety, health, jobs, education, housing—the long-term damage of Biden’s immigration policies are leading toward costs far beyond the so-called racist and unaffordable border wall developed by Trump. For those concerned about the future of America, we must quickly address those entering our states to make sure law and order does not turn into crime and chaos.
