President Joe Biden should be impeached because he opened the southern border to illegal immigrants, thus violating the oath of office to, “... preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Encouraging the admission of illegal immigrants into the United States is the exact opposite of preserving, or protecting or defending the United States of America. Our government has procedures for legal immigration into America for those wanting to work here or to become citizens, and all foreign immigrants should be required to follow those procedures.

President Biden's approach to addressing the illegal immigration problem facing the United States is an insult to every American because it puts all of us in jeopardy because of the increased exposure to COVID-19 and criminals illegally entering America.

The president is diverting tax dollars for the benefit of illegal immigrants while American citizens, especially military veterans, cannot get the medical and psychological services they need and have earned.

The Democratic Party, the “never-Trumpers” and their allies in the for-profit media impeached President Trump on allegations that were, in the end, baseless. Where are those voices now?

Careful what you wish for. Can you say President Harris? I choke when I attempt to.

domenico nuckols

President Biden told people to stay home. Republicans will not help reform immigration laws. Stop playing the blame game and do something.

Carlos Ponce

" Republicans will not help reform immigration laws."

What does domenico see as reforming immigration laws? The laws on the books ALREADY are good and were working. What Democrats see as "reform" is an open borders policy... and that is not good.

Gary Miller

Yes Carlos. The only correct immigration reforms offered have been by Republicans. No control and unlimited illegal migration is all Democrats offer.

HANK CHESSON

Amen Mr. Ponce

Don Schlessinger

Why reform when our current immigration laws aren't enforced?

Gary Miller

Vidio's of Biden inviting illegal's to come to US southern border have been played several time a day. After border situation got out of control he told them to stay home.

REGINALD LACKEY

If you like Robert's thought for the morning check out the third in line...

domenico nuckols

Carlos Democrats do NOT want open borders. Another Trump lie. Provide me data that state open borders. Keep living in your own world.

Carlos Ponce

So you are telling me my eyes are lying? The borders are open! The borders are open! The borders are open! domenico is the LIAR here.

Don Schlessinger

DN your thinking about democrats thirty years ago.

Gary Miller

Dominico> Democrats may not want open borders but Socialists are in control and they want open borders. Democrats don't control the Democrat party now.

HANK CHESSON

Yes Democrats want the destruction of the USA

HANK CHESSON

Democrats are the ENEMY OFThe USA

Gary Miller

Robert> True thinking.

George Laiacona

Only a “Trumper “ would want to cover up the disbanding of immigration policies that were set in place before the TV celebrity took office. Republicans are sidestepping the fact that the Trump administration closed and downsized the immigration facilities that were in place. Biden is now left with Trump’s actions, or should I say inactions.

Carlos Ponce

The immigration policies under Obama and now Biden were and are not working.

What did President Trump do? HE FOLLOWED THE LAW!!!!!!

George Laicona and domenico are calling border agents liars. And many served for decades. And these EXPERTS said President Trump's policies worked. They say Obama and Biden's do not. Don't you believe the EXPERTS?

If not, looks like I cannot fix STUPID!

Carol Dean

Obvious that George and domenico watch only the liberal news. Even one of the democrat representative in Texas is VERY concerned about what is happening at the border crossings! STOP the INSANITY or send all of the drug and sex trafficers, the gang members and ILLEGAL Aliens from other countries to DC and Delaware. Those people in charge seem to be more then happy to share OUR taxpayer funds with those who do NOT warrant a single penny! Charity Begins at Home. Wakeup and support AMERICAN CITIZENS!

Gary Miller

Carol> More please!

HANK CHESSON

AMEN

Chief of the United States Border Patrol under President Barack Obama and later ICE director under President Trump says “They inherited a system that worked.”

In an interview with Rachel de la Guidice he said:

"Well, I think everyone’s familiar with what has transpired with how just with the stroke of a pen President Biden has dismantled and removed almost every effective tool, authority, and policy that we had that was effectively managing the crisis along our southwest border, specifically on the illegal immigration side.

And what we’ve seen is a skyrocket in the numbers. Just let me give you a few stats that I think are very important.

Last month, in the month of February, they saw over 100,000 apprehensions of people trying to illegally enter the border. I think in March, you’re going to see that number skyrocket 120,000, 130,000, if not reaching the numbers at the height of the crisis that we saw in 2019.

And what we’re seeing, daily averages anywhere from 4,500 a day to 6,000. Right now they’ve got over 10,000 individuals in their custody. As a frame of reference, by November of 2020, we had less than 800 in our custody.

… And let’s keep in mind that they’ve released over 20,000 illegal immigrants since January, but the American people [don’t] know that because this administration is hiding that information from them."

https://www.dailysignal.com/2021/03/24/we-warned-them-trump-immigration-official-talks-border-crisis/

And those currently working the border for CPB and ICE agree with his assessment.

But George Laiacona does not listen to the experts. He would rather regurgitate Liberal propaganda.

Michael Woodson

The current increase in border crossings is seasonal, months with over 150k apprehensions were regular under bush despite much less effort to apprehend. (https://graphics.reuters.com/USA-IMMIGRATION/BORDER/xklpyoalapg/) It's natural that a political appointee will spin things in favor of the guy who promoted him

Carlos Ponce

Michael Woodson, Mark Morgan was first appointed by Barack Obama. He's a straight shooter.

Robert Braeking

Whatever, Whatever. Keep deceiving yourself.

Jeannette Guest

Biden needs to own the castastropy of carnage at the border .Policies and procedures made by, hold on to your hat... OBAMA.

Jim Forsythe

Trump was impeached 2 times.

At this time, the number of votes to impeach Biden is lacking.

In the past 10 years, visa overstays in the United States have outnumbered border crossings by a ratio of about 2 to 1.

Until congress addresses immigration reform, we will continue to have problems.

1924: In the wake of the numerical limits established by the 1924 law, illegal immigration to the United States increases. The U.S. Border Patrol is established to crack down on illegal immigrants crossing the Mexican and Canadian borders into the United States.

Unless DC makes major changes, we will always have problems.

Carlos Ponce

Jim posts, "Trump was impeached 2 times." Our Founding Fathers warned us about partisan impeachments. Even though a few RINOs voted for impeachment and removal it did not happen, he was found not guilty. The RINOs smell like Donkeys.

Carol Dean

Jim, no need for reforms. Simply ENFORCE our EXISTING Laws!

Jim Forsythe

Carol, what we have now is not working and will not work the way the laws are setup. Unless we come up with a immigration system that all agree on, we will continue to have problems each time the other party comes into power, because they only want to do it their way.

Carlos Ponce

"Unless we come up with a immigration system that all agree on... "

Enforcement of the law as currently written works, But I agree with Team Biden ignoring those laws "what we have now is not working".

Charles Douglas

Ms. Dean>> [thumbup][thumbup] Amen!!!

Charles Douglas

Ms. Dean> The LEFT does not want our existing laws to work, nor do they want any other immigration laws to work! They peddle in "VOTE HARVESTING" and they are basically focused on the African-Americans and Hispanic/Latinos here, along with all they can get to cross our borders! They do NOT see us as people, they see us as VOTES keeping them in power!

They systematically manage minorities, with the help of outrageous stimulus packages, favoring their eccentric billionaire donors, and lobbyists who stuff their coffers with Benjamins, Washington's, and Lincolns! They also manage what kind of education we are exposed too! I was apart of their system of politics and education for a great deal of my life! I had to overcome their third rate education and fifth rated facilities!

I remember wearing some WHITE BOYS football shoes who play for All A WHITE LaMarque High back in the day! What was our taxes going for? I know their game front and back, & in and out! It does not bother the LEFT for minorities to parish from the ghetto life, low paying jobs and bad education! This is because many minorities won't be able to compete for better, and will fall by the wayside of life! What is the wayside of life?

Skid-row, Poverty, Addiction, Prison, or the Graveyard. This is Why the LEFT will allow someone like Lori Lightfoot be Mayor of Chicago, where BLACK on BLACK crime is off the charts, yet even Barack Obama, have to this day never said a word about what is happening there! They are happy to sacrifice huge national debt, if by financing MASSIVE Government give aways & subsidies they are able to call the shots and stay in power!

Carol Dean

Sorry you had to learn all of this the hard way. You and I both know that this is NOT acceptable behavior and yet, it continues to happen on a daily basis. The left have used minorities for so many years just to keep themselves elected. What is it going to take to change this? Maybe the Republicans need to learn how to "lie" to get elected and then do whatever they want regardless!?!

Gary Miller

Carol> Truth, short and sweet.

Gary Miller

Only really correct immigration law would say "0" illegal immigration. By border or visa.

Gary Miller

A constitutional amendment is needed. Stating that no person having entered the US illegaly can not ever get citizenship or voting rights. Democrats would have no reason to encourage illegal immigration hoping for more Democrat voters in future.

George Laiacona

Carlos has his brand of truth and I have mine. If you like the Republicans kind of truth then you will only believe it, no matter what the Democrats or Independents say.

Carlos Ponce

My "truth" is backed by experts. What George Laiacona jokingly calls his truth is mere propaganda.

Apparently the old adage is true: You can lead a Donkeycrat to knowledge but you can't make it think!

Carol Dean

Sorry, George, your brand of "lies" that your party has been caught up in is NOT helping ANYONE and that includes YOURSELF.

Michael Moriarty

Perhaps we should fortify the borders and kill everything that attempts to cross them. That would keep people out and deter more people from coming. Would that policy satisfy everyone?

Carlos Ponce

Under President Trump there were raids of companies that hired illegals. Expect that effort to halt or be curtailed under Open Border Biden.

Jim Forsythe

Under the Obama administration, total ICE deportations were above 385,000 each year in fiscal years 2009-2011, and hit a high of 409,849 in fiscal 2012. The numbers dropped to below 250,000 in fiscal years 2015 and 2016.

Under Trump, ICE deportations fell to 226,119 in fiscal 2017, then ticked up to over 250,000 in fiscal 2018 and hit a Trump administration high of 282,242 this fiscal year (as of June).

Carlos Ponce

"Under Trump, ICE deportations fell"

"The number of interior arrests made by ICE (known as “administrative arrests”) rose 30% in fiscal 2017 after Trump signed an executive order giving the agency broader authority to detain unauthorized immigrants, including those without criminal records." according to Pew Research

Why did the numbers then decrease? THE WALL, THE WALL, THE WALL kept the number of illegals in this country lower.

Jim Forsythe

The numbers have increased, including under Trump, and unless we change the way we approach immigration the problem will continue.

Numbers did not decrease under Trump. Under Trump, ICE deportations fell to 226,119 in fiscal 2017, then ticked up to over 250,000 in fiscal 2018 and hit a Trump administration high of 282,242 this fiscal year (as of June). This record was broken the next year.

The number of migrant apprehensions at the U.S.-Mexico border rose in fiscal 2019 to its highest annual level in 12 years. The 851,508 apprehensions recorded last fiscal year (October 2018-September 2019) were more than double the number the year before (396,579) .

Carlos Ponce

The answer is simple, Jim. Follow the law as written. Messing with it is an open invitation for illegals and the cartel.

Jim Forsythe

We have gone thru how many presidents, and the problem has not gotten better.

What is need is some teeth in the way we approach the problem.

Some of the steps that are needed.

Require all employees be verified by E-Verify. Require weekly report from employers that they are working. If they do not show up to work the employer must report it that day. If you have a person working for you that has not been verified, a fine and jail time would be required for the owner of the company. Require the employers to report have much they are paying that person and also require them, the employer, to pay 10% of that employees salary to the government. The salary has to be what they would pay a USA citizen. This would encourage a employer to hire a USA citizen.

Require anyone that is not a legal resident tp report on line daily as to where they are working or going to school. If working, how much they are making. If going to school, require the school to report that they are attending classes and if they do not come to class, they must report it that day. Require a passing grade and if they are not passing, revoke their privilege of going to school in the USA. At that time they would have to leave IUSA or have a job . A person that is in the USA on a permit would also have to report where they are staying, and if how much rent they are paying.

If we do not change how we approach this problem, we will continue to have a problem of people in the USA that should not be here.

Carlos Ponce

E-verify is not on the Democrat's priority list, Jim.

Jim Forsythe

It's on mine.

Jim Forsythe

What we are dealing with is not a Republican or a Demarcate problem, but a USA problem. What we are doing now is trying to solve this problem by using party fixes to a problem that requires a USA fix, and not a band aid.

People addressing immigration problems, using a party fix, will fail.

Carlos Ponce

Jim, then tell Nancy and Chuck. E-verify is not a priority for them.

Jim Forsythe

It is my opinion. If you have a better idea, please post. Or all your ideas just the same old thing?

If we want to solve the problem, it will require all working for the solution.

If DC does not work together, people will be talking about, what are we going to do about immigration, 100 years from now.

Carlos Ponce

"If you have a better idea, please post."

Enforce the laws we have.

Carlos Ponce

Democrat ideals are losing ground in this country. Leftist Politico took a poll about citizenship for illegals.

"The poll, conducted by Politico/Morning Consult and released Wednesday, shows that 43% of voters overall think undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States should have a citizenship pathway, a 14 percentage point decline since January.

With Democrats, support plunged from 72% to 57% during that time period. Meanwhile, only 1 in 4 Republicans backs the idea, a number that dropped by 10 percentage points."

https://www.politico.com/f/?id=00000178-6297-d5c9-ab7c-e79fcf7b0000

Judging from the demographics, polling was skewed to the Left but even these skewed sampling shows them losing ground.

Democrats polled 49%

Republicans polled 39%

Other or no response 12%

.Mr. Hardee! Mr. Hardee, let me tell you one thing! It is always a pleasure and uplifting to hear from you sir! You always paint a clear portrait of what the RADICALS are trying to hide!!!!

Thomas Carpenter

We flushed the toilet on November 3rd when we said adios to Bunker Boy.

David Hardee

Who is Bunker Boy? Obviously, Bunker Boy is another term created to denigrate someone. Your quip/sarcastic comments lack clarity. Therefore I will qualify my response. If Bunker Boy refers to Trump then you are a member of those so far in the toilet you cannot reach the handle. Make clear what you intend with a comment and you will get an unqualified more effective response.

Carlos Ponce

Biden is Basement Bunker Boy.

Charles Douglas

That's what RADICALS do to get away from the fact they systematically, conned & scammed some voters into supporting a senile RACIST fool to be President. They like to change the subject or result to blaming Trump anytime they get jammed up, like Joe tried to do with the border crisis today, and the President of Mexico shut His pitiful lies down!

His own Vice-President publicly in a debate earlier during the campaign season, called him out as anti-busing, and RACIST, with KKK affiliations! Joe Biden has been hiding out for over a week trying to practice a speech he has been avoiding since he was given his position in January. A BLACK woman has been doing his job for him, and even tonight, he sholved the Border Mess he created by his stupidity, ineptitude, and pride... to Kamala Harris!

If Kamala Harris was going to be President why didn't she get it on her own merit and accord? This is the epitome of deceit, lies, and deceptions! It is so embarrassing, not only as an American but to have this individual, who is being laughed at by Russia and China, and other world leaders to have to called this shell of a man, Leader of.the.Free World!

There was something the old East Texas people use to.say which applies here: "What goes around comes around!" The Holy Bible is more explicit: " He who diggeth a pit shall fall therein; and he who rolleth a stone, it shall return onto him again." ..Proverbs 26:27.

Joe and Kamala both were very vocal in criticizing the Trump Administration concerning how they were housing separated children at the Southern Border, now what they were lying about earlier, has flipped on them times 100!

Kids living in filth, and dirty enclosures, sick with colds, and the flu, with little supervision to protect females from predators, and sexual assaults. A Five year old was found LEFT behind on a dirt road holding hands with a three year old who was holding a hand of a two year old....walking down a dirty road,....alone! JOE CHINA BIDEN caused this, and he is responsible for the deaths, assaults, or harms coming to these kids BEFORE they get here and AFTERWARDS too! All this and all these people from all over the world are paying a heavy expensive price JUST to become voting pawns for the LEFT, by crashing our borders after being victimized by organized blood-sucking Trafficters! That to me is unjust, and it ought not to be!

Stuart Crouch

Boy, someone sure flushed out the 'merchants of ignorance, fear & hate' from beneath their rocks for this submissions of lies and other mistruths. If you only had an inkling of an idea of just how pathetic and laughingly sad all of your circled-up, gang-mentality (there's a better descriptor that I'll avoid for now) make you appear as, and that all of the glad-handing and back-slapping you all do to feel better about yourselves and whatever you are most threatened by at the moment, only serves to reinforce that appearance.

What I find to be the most comical is the dire, 'the sky is falling' doom & gloom that y'all use to rally yourselves around some inanely baseless point and then try and add some credibility to your lie(s) by slandering and denigrating those that don't agree with you. It presents itself as a group of frightened & simple people, unable to entertain ideas that differ from their own, or are in some way contrary to what they have been conditioned to believe. Your talking points (if we can call them that) are simply snippets of a larger, overall ideological narrative that was developed to mask your fear, hate and greed. And yet again, I find myself having to provide to you the bad news that the only ones that believe your nonsense are, well.....you all, in that aforementioned 'circle'. Y'all simply take turns being the 'pivot man".

David Hardee

Welcome to the fray, Stuart. Well said, all tho your comment is appropriate as reflective on both the 75m and the 80m that are infused with their diametric truth. Truth is a perspective that often is tainted and or changed by facts. The indisputable fact is that Biden/Harris are installed and their supporters should dismiss the fear, enjoy the victory and leave those struggling with their disappointment to languish in hope that their truth will eventually be fact.

The supporters of the winner must shower the discontent with all the virtue and accomplishments of the Biden/Harris period of power.

David

George Laiacona

The intransigence continues ! As long as each party has its own ideas as just how to solve the present situation. We have not seen any attempt to bring into law immigration reform. So there will continue to be different options until someone in congress agrees to do something legitimate. As long as the Republicans keep hammering the cog in the wheel of progress, nothing will change.

Carlos Ponce

The problem with Democrat bills is they do not see the consequences of those bills. They merely use them as campaign talking points.

George Laiacona

As long as the Republicans maintain control of legislation we will not see any kind of legislation for immigration, gun control,term limits, and any other laws that will be of value to the lower classes of Americans. Look back as far as the other TV celebrity of the 80’s. Have you seen any legislation that has taken place for the lower classes other that the affordable care act ?

Carlos Ponce

" legislation for immigration, gun control,term limits, and any other laws that will be of value to the lower classes of Americans" was proposed but blocked by Democrats.

The Trump tax cuts benefited everyone including "the lower class". Doesn't George Laiacona remember the LOW unemployment rates?

Thomas Carpenter

The Fat Dotard inherited a booming economy from President Obama, then trashed it.

Carlos Ponce

Don't know who this Fat Dotard" is...... But President Trump inherited a so so economy from OBama then made it GREAT!

Carlos Ponce

I looked it up

Definition of dotard: a person in his or her dotage

Definition of dotage: a state or period of senile decay marked by decline of mental poise and alertness

Who is displaying senile decay? Oh, Thomas Carpenter must be writing about Joe Biden.

Bill Sterchi

Simple geographic location does not a Citizen make - UNLESS you are standing in America, for some reason.

Jarvis Buckley

Biden & Harris are a joke . Our Country is in a world of hurt.

Jarvis Buckley

Be patient, the impeachment will happen in 2023 probably

Carlos Ponce

He and Jezebel will be out of there before then.

Gary Miller

The present conditions at the border indicate Biden and some of his cabal should be arrested and convicted for child abuse.

Ted Gillis

Gary, just the use of word “cabal” in you statement sets off most of our bs meters.

Carlos Ponce

No Ted, just you and a few.

Robert Braeking

Actually, the use of the word 'cabal' is perfect. "a small group of secret plotters, as against a government or person in authority."

We the people are the government and we the people are our own authority. They, the ruling class cabal are plotting against us behind closed doors.

Carlos Ponce

Roberta Jacobson, Special Assistant to the President and Coordinator for the Southern Border announced her resignation.

She was the one who told the press that the borders were open - in Spanish.

She also blames the influx of illegal immigrants on climate change.[rolleyes]

Amazing, the media treated every resignation during the previous administration as displaying chaos - but not here.

White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said in a statement announced her announced departure "Consistent with her commitment at the outset to serve in the administration’s first 100 days". Funny, this "commitment" was revealed last week.

Such an important position and Biden appointed a "temp"???????
