Joe Biden is claiming to be the President-elect.
Donald Trump and his allies still think they have something to say about that.
And now Joe Biden found out one surprise that will ruin his plan to take power from Trump.
President Trump’s signature issue the last four years was immigration.
The President put in place a series of executive orders to stem the flow of illegal aliens pouring over the southern border.
But in October and November, record numbers of illegal aliens stormed the border believing Joe Biden won the Presidency and amnesty was around the corner.
That’s because on the campaign trail Biden pledged on day one to end President Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols which force illegal aliens to remain in Mexico while their asylum claims are adjudicated.
Now Joe Biden’s allies are warning him to back off that promise because it will cause a border crisis that will destroy his potential Presidency right from the start.
The Washington Post wrote in an editorial, “Make no mistake. Despite Mr. Biden’s distaste for the cruelty and bigotry at the heart of President Trump’s immigration policies, it would be self-defeating for the new administration to take steps that would encourage, intentionally or not, a new surge of illegal border crossing. Any hope of building public support for a legislative overhaul of the immigration system, let alone bipartisan backing in Congress, would be blown to pieces by fresh images of pandemonium at the border.”
In the editorial, the Post acknowledged the reality that the crisis on the border was real.
“The risk is real and building. More than 140,000 undocumented migrants were apprehended at the southern border in October and November combined, the highest numbers for those months in almost a decade,” the Post added.
In a first, a liberal media outlet also admitted that ending President Trump’s border restrictions would act as a magnet for illegal immigration.
“Yet any sudden move to abolish the policy without an orderly system to replace it could be read as a green light that would invite more migrants than the U.S. bureaucracy can process. Nor is it reasonable to swiftly revoke the emergency public health order authorizing the summary expulsion of unauthorized migrants at the border, based on the pandemic’s threat,” the Post added.
In 2014 a wave of illegal aliens flooding the border helped Republicans pummel the Democrats in the midterm election and take control of the Senate.
The Democrats paid for that disaster over the next six years as the GOP majority blocked Barack Obama from placing Merrick Garland on the Supreme Court and replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Amy Coney Barrett.
The Democrats’ lax border policies led to an electoral defeat that allowed President Trump and a Republican Senate to reshape the federal courts for a generation.
And now the Washington Post is warning Joe Biden that he threatens to walk headfirst into another buzz saw if he goes back to the open borders policies of the Obama-Biden administration right off the bat.
