The Illegal Immigrant Industrial Complex

Conflating refugees, asylum seekers, immigrants, migrants and invaders

By Katy Grimes, February 7, 2024 6:30 am

The United States Southern border is completely broken. America is being invaded courtesy of our own President Joe Biden, who feigns he inherited the immigration invasion, when in fact on January 21, 2021, day one of his presidency, newly inaugurated President Joe Biden ordered the border wall construction halted, and dismantled. He reversed former President Trump’s immigration policies, resulting in more than 8.5 million illegal immigrants  apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The new border bill currently being pushed by U.S. Senate Democrats, some Republicans, and the President, appears to be dead on arrival in the House. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell even removed his support for the bill.

The President is still calling the bill the “toughest and fairest” in decades — and the left claims the Senate is merely adopting Trump era immigration policy.

So what’s going on?

Greased palms is what’s going on… this bill represents a redistribution of American wealth, again, as all of the COVID funding for cities and states was. Or, you can just call it the Illegal Immigration Industrial Complex.

In the Senate border bill, it was fairly evident that the Senate planned to send bailout money to blue sanctuary cities whose mayors are shrieking about the cost to feed, clothe, and house the “migrants” showing up in their cities. Handing out VISA debit cards and iPhones isn’t helping the cost. Notably, the people never voted for sanctuary cities (or states) – these were just declared by local predominately Democrat politicians and city councils.

A group called “#WelcomeWithDignity” and their 26 NGO and non-profit partners “are calling on Senators to reject the bill and consider alternative, humane solutions  to the problems facing the U.S. immigration system.”

#WelcomeWithDignity has “partners” in California:

These states have partners as well:

Here is what #WelcomeWithDignity Campaign for asylum rights says:

“The newly introduced Senate funding bill, if passed, will result in more cruelty and chaos at our nation’s border. The bill is poisoned with extreme anti-immigrant policies that would essentially end access to asylum, a legal pathway for people fleeing persecution. An international aid bill is no place for immigration reform. It is unconscionable to use people seeking asylum as political pawns to gain support for the protection of others.

The #WelcomeWithDignity Campaign for asylum rights strongly condemns the Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2024, introduced by Senators Lankford (R-OK), Sinema (I-AZ), and Murphy (D-CT). Among its most damaging provisions, the bill would make it harder to determine whether a person can apply for asylum.”

“Over the years, the U.S. has ramped up its cruelty in an attempt to curtail the number of people arriving at its border. Adults and children have been put in cages, families have been separated, the border has been closed and, still, people continue to seek safety. People flee their home countries out of necessity. This bill will not stop people from coming; it will only lead to more cruelty and chaos at the border,” said Melina Roche, #WelcomeWithDignity Campaign Manager.

As Larry Kudlow reported at Real Clear Politics, “Joe Biden doesn’t need a bill to fix the border. He just needs to enforce the law. That’s been my view and that remains my view.”

He continued: “The law is Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act which gives the president authority to suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens. It is similar to Title 42, but even bigger than Title 42. It also includes the travel restrictions that were also implemented by President Trump.”

“In 2018, the Supreme Court supported Section 212(f). The trouble is, Joe Biden won’t enforce it. That’s one of the many reasons why we don’t need a new piece of legislation, especially when that legislation could virtually codify somewhere between 5-8,000 illegals entering the U.S. per day.”

  1. With Texas closing off popular crossing points and seeing a reduction of folks crossing it has already been reported that California and Arizona are seeing an increase in border crossers. Nesom with the assistance of the mainstream media will try to ignore these increases as long as he can. Back in 2014 residents of Murrieta blocked buses from arriving at a facility in that town. There is a sentiment in California that agrees with the folks in New York City and Chicago about illegal aliens. With California’s current budget situation Newsom is in a pickle. On a related note, it would be interesting to know how much taxpayer money that these NGO’s receive? These groups could literally be eliminated with a stroke of the pen and a vote in congress.

  2. Melting Pot Dead End
    The American “Melting Pot” that once held the promise of a peaceful and productive social experiment has become a “toilet bowl” of chronic, poisonous political conflict, and an endemic threat to American social cohesion and prosperity. Biden’s open border plans are the “Dems’ Insurrection.” Open borders are the death knell of American democracy.

  3. The angry Anti-American marionettists that control the Biden administration are hell bent on destroying a once great nation. As has been reported by many journalists, there are people who believe that America is an evil place. The names of those that have spewed this rhetoric is too long to list here.
    Joe is the fall guy. Look behind the curtain for the wizards pulling the levers.
    They must be stopped! Call me a conspiracist! Open your eyes, read beyond the headlines, listen beyond the sound bites.

  4. Assuring a reliable and endless supply of undocumented Democrats, terrorists, drugs, drug dealers, assorted criminals and welfare recipients.

  5. Follow the money. Right into the hands of the teachers unions. California’s unelected fourth branch of government, admitted even former Gov Jerry Brown. Prop 98 funds this huge teacher union revenue stream.

    High birth rate illegals provide the necessary cohorts of new K-12 students every single year, that protect the flow of teacher union dues into Democrat causes. The educational industry complex needs more scrutiny, just ike every other tax dollar dependency industrial complex

    1. It is worse than that even. Gavin of course funnels money into his wife’s for profit and “non profits”. In return her companies provide racist education that dehumanizes White people. This is massaged into entire lectures, even down to the singular letter of “w” that is lower cased while other ethnicities are upper cased. Just like AP and Reuters. The education is also generally weaponized to make sure it produces Democrats and, conveniently, shoves Gavin in the curriculum. It gets worse though. It is not just the union leadership that behaves in a partisan fashion…because the ever growing administration is even MORE partisan. This pattern even has emerged in GOP states due to feckless GOP leadership at the State level, and the swamp GOP seems to largely be in on the con, although not entirely. I just got through vetting my ballot for America First candidates…even though they will all lose, and even the state candidates seem to more concerned with Ukraine and Israel’s borders than California. This can’t continue.

  6. While Democrat politicians are mostly profiting from the redistribution of American wealth via the Illegal Immigration Industrial Complex, quite a few RINO Republican are profiting as well? Yesterday California Rep. Tom McClintock was one of three Republicans who inexplicably joined their deep-state Democrat cronies and refused to support a resolution that contained two articles of impeachment against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for refusing to comply with Federal immigration laws and for violating the public trust. Why would McClintock do that? Maybe McClintock’s palms are bring greased, maybe he’s being blackmailed, or maybe he’s just a traitorous RINO deep state globalist swamp creature?

    1. Yes, Tom McClintock…favorite guest of Armstrong and Getty. An AM radio talk show that I find entertaining and have listened to for over 20 years. Unfortunately, a peculiar pattern has emerged after listening to this talk show over such a long time period. I sort of follow the overseas conflicts since I am…retired military. I have noticed that there does not seem to be one overseas conflict that they have not supported over the years. No matter how disastrous each one turns out, as soon as the next thing heats up they jump onboard, like Ukraine. I am increasingly concerned that such thoughts are simple not allowed between a collusion of the FCC and the stations, iHeartRadio and the ownership and sponsors, and OGAs.

  7. Mr. McClintock needs to check himself into Guantanamo Bay and save us the expense of trying him for siding with the enemies of the US. This is literal High Treason. Enough is enough.

    1. What a cuck. I am really sick of these RINOs that go on AM Radio. Quite frankly, I have had it with AM Radio and all their neocon BS anyway.

      1. BINGO! See my reply above. I have found their repetitive propaganda to be so on the nose that I have mostly given up on it. How much neocon nonsense can one take. All on the same team.

  8. What a cuck. I am really sick of these RINOs that go on AM Radio. Quite frankly, I have had it with AM Radio and all their neocon BS anyway.
