Biden's DHS Chief: Migrants Are Our 'Highest Priority' - NOT Americans
Alejandro Mayorkas says 'priority' is to bring migrants 'into this country safely'
Democrat Joe Biden's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) chief Alejandro Mayorkas has declared that his agency's "highest priority" is to "bring" migrants "into this country safely."
Mayorkas says DHS is making it a "priority" to reunite foreign nationals with their family members, despite concerns about illegal immigration from taxpaying Americans.
Speaking to MSNBC in March, Mayorkas said the Biden administration was planning to import migrants to the United States to reunite them with relatives who had already entered the country illegally.
The DHS secretary claims the move sought to counter deportations during President Donald Trump’s term in office.
He announced to the "news" network that four deported families would be allowed into the United States to live with a child or teenager they left behind.
“We need … [to] develop a process where we can systemically bring them into this country safely and begin the healing process,” he claimed, according to a transcript prepared and released by his DHS.
The media-magnified spotlight by Biden and Mayorkas on the migrant families “is distracting attention from their own responsibility for screwing up the border,” responded Mark Krikorian, the director of the Center for Immigration Studies.
It’s [Donald] Trump flagellation actually, because [the message that] “Trump is responsible for the evil of family separation” is the most emotionally potent message for Democrats …
They’re turning it into a defining issue [for immigraton policy] in a way that is simply not supported by the facts.
Mayorkas is trying to focus the public’s attention on the welfare of a few thousand Central American parents who brought their children to help them get through the border and get jobs in the United States, according to Breitbart.
But his deputies are allowing a growing number of foreign blue-collar workers to rush through the border and into the jobs needed by diverse Americans.
Roughly 185,000 single economic migrants have run past Mayorkas’s diverted border agents since October, a source told Breitbart News.
Also, Mayorkas has adopted border rules that encourage many more foreign families to separate.
Mayorkas’s rules allow migrants to enter the United States via the different side doors for children, teenagers, single adults, or families.
Mayorkas’s separated inflow includes at least 30,000 separated children and teenagers who were brought to the border by hired coyotes.
In many cases, the migrants chose to leave their children behind as they were deported back home.
Most of the children and teenagers were subsequently sent to live with relatives, including many of who are living illegally in the United States.
With the help of cell phones, many of the migrants remain in contact with their left-behind children.
Mayorkas told MSNBC:
Our highest priority is to reunite these families.
As we so powerfully saw, these are young people in their formative years.
These are sometimes children as young as 3 years old.
We are addressing the needs and vulnerabilities, not only of the children, but of course, their mothers, their fathers, the people that make up these families.
Mayorkas arrived in the United States as a child refugee fleeing from Castro’s Cuba.
He has frequently shown his favoritism for migrants, for example, by describing the United States as a nation of immigrants. He continued:
Our announcement of the reunification of four families is only the beginning, but it’s an important beginning to, in fact, publicize …
Some [of the migrants’ children] live with immediate relatives, some with distant relatives, some are placed in foster care because they’re unaccompanied and they don’t have a sponsor in the United States …
Some of these children are in their most formative years, their most formative stages of development, others are acutely vulnerable by reason of their incredible youth.
Three years of age, at the time of separation, it’s extraordinarily cruel and inhumane.
“It’s not about righting the wrong of the past; it’s about restoring the conscience of our government,” said Mayorkas, who is now drafting regulations that will help migrants dodge the popular laws that require the deportation of migrant workers from Americans’ national labor market.
Since January 20, Biden and Mayorkas have discarded Trump’s pro-American, pro-family policies and have revived the long-standing extraction-migration policies supported by prior presidents.
These semi-legal policies extract migrants and consumers from Mexico, Central America, and other regions for use in the U.S. economy — regardless of the damage done to the migrants on their Hunger Games-style trek to the United States or to the economies and political development of migrant-sending countries, such as Honduras and Guatemala.
But establishment reporters don’t call Mayorkas out for his duplicity, said Krikorian, because "they’re part of the fakery.”
For many years, a wide variety of pollsters have shown deep and broad opposition to labor migration and the inflow of temporary contract workers into jobs sought by young U.S. graduates.
This opposition is multiracial, cross-sex, non-racist, class-based, intra-Democratic, rational, and recognizes the solidarity Americans owe to each other.
The voter opposition to elite-backed economic migration coexists with support for legal immigrants and some sympathy for illegal migrants.
But only a minority of Americans — mostly leftists — embrace the many skewed polls and articles pushing the 1950’s corporate “Nation of Immigrants” claim.
The deep public opposition to labor migration is built on the widespread recognition that legal and illegal migration moves money away from most Americans’ pocketbooks and families.
Migration moves money from employees to employers, from families to investors, from young to old, from children to their parents, from homebuyers to investors, from technology to stoop labor, from red states to blue states, and from the central states to the coastal states such as New York.
