Secure the border Mr. President! Secure the border Congress! You all sit on your high horses in your elected seats promising the world, yet you deliver nothing. Nothing. Nothing but blame and excuses.
The “Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2024” is dead. The “Border Bill” is dead. Each died an ignominious death in the Senate today.
We’ll talk here only about the Border Bill, and not the Ukraine and Israel funding provisions.
Democrats blame Republicans. Republicans blame Democrats. And Republicans blame other Republicans.
And Democrats and some Republicans blame Donald Trump.
The blame game is alive and well. Everyone is quick to blame another and no one is willing to accept responsibility for the problems plaguing Washington and the southern border.
President Biden summed up this blame game in a short address to the nation yesterday.
“All indications are this bill won’t even move forward to the Senate floor. Why? A simple reason: Donald Trump. Because Donald Trump thinks it’s bad for him politically. He’d rather weaponize this issue than actually solve it.”
“Republicans have to decide – who do they serve, Donald Trump or the American people.”
“I know my answer. I serve the American people. I’m here to solve problems. Just months ago the Republicans were asking for this exact bill to deal with the border, to provide support for Ukraine and Israel. And now it’s here and they’re saying never mind, never mind.”
“But if the bill fails, I want to be absolutely clear about something. The American people are gonna know why it failed. I’ll be taking this issue to the country and the voters are going to know that it’s just at the moment we’re gonna secure the border, Trump and the MAGA Republicans said no. Cause they’re afraid of Donald Trump. Every day between now and November the American people are gonna know, that the only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends.”
Blame. Blame Blame. President Biden stated emphatically that “the only reason the border is not secure is Donald Trump and his MAGA Republican friends.”
Blame. And lies.
It’s true – Biden and the Democrats find a very easy scapegoat in Donald Trump. Trump, a natural-born loudmouth, will take credit for anything he can. He thrives on attention. He is campaigning against the bill and speaking directly his opinion that the bill will not result in border protection whatsoever.
Such is his 1st Amendment right as a candidate and as an American. But he does not control the members of Congress and I posit they are not afraid of him, as Biden claims.
So, what of the Republicans in Congress who oppose the bill? Many of the Senators and Representatives who oppose the bill are very intelligent, independent and experienced. They are acting on their own, not being swayed by Donald Trump.
Don’t believe me?
We won’t increase the world count here but you can read a summary here or read the bill here.
Anyone with an iota of intelligence can see this bill does not provide the border protection this country needs.
In conclusion, a response to President Biden’s claim that he serves the people and is here to solve problems, consider this:
Since Joe Biden became president, nearly 10 million individuals have entered the United States illegally. And that is those we know about. These people come from all over the world, not just Latin America. Read this report.
President Biden also said this, proving his true allegiance is not in serving the people and problem solving, but in flooding the country with people from other countries – “This bill doesn’t address everything I wanted. We still need a path for documentation for those who are already here and we’re not walking away from true immigration reform including permanent protections and a pathway to citizenship for young Dreamers.”
Does President Biden really serve the people of the United States and is he really trying to solve problems?
No. He does not and he is not. He is lying. And he seeks to lay the blame on others. He’ll say it over and over and over as he campaigns in the coming months.
