Senile Joe Biden is not going be successfully dragged across the finish line to the Oval Office. Not if this is his immigration plan:
Democratic presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden on Wednesday formally embraced citizenship rights for 11 million illegal immigrants and a full erasure of all of President Trump’s get-tough border policies, as part of the party’s new unity platform.
He would expand sanctuary locations, limit ICE’s ability to deport criminals in local jails, and reverse deportations for some military veterans already ousted because of criminal records.
Perhaps no other issue draws as stark a contrast between Mr. Biden and Mr. Trump as immigration.
Meanwhile, while the world is distracted by the COVID-19 panic and the Biden/DNC riots, Trump is plowing ahead with his signature campaign promise, the border wall (to the media’s horror, of course):
Last week, Trump visited Arizona and reiterated his promise to build 450 miles of new wall along the 1,954-mile U.S.-Mexico border by year’s end. Since the pandemic started, his administration has accelerated wall construction and increased spending from $11.1 billion to $15 billion, awarding more than $1.7 billion in new contracts.
Since the start of the pandemic in mid-January, federal crews have built two miles of new wall, in California and Texas, and replaced 93 miles of border fence nationwide, for a total of 191 miles of new and replacement wall, according to the most recent report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, issued June 26.
The administration also built another 31 miles of new and replacement secondary wall (which runs parallel to an existing barrier) north of the border, which it counts toward its total of 222 miles. Trump commemorated the 200th mile by visiting and signing a stretch last week in San Luis, Ariz.
There’s more good news on the immigration front, with jobs being transferred from immigrants to native-born Americans. Trump needs to lock in these gains. Biden has laid out his radical open-borders agenda, so now it’s on Trump to drive home the populist message on the campaign trail. America is not a hotel.
