After several reprieves the Biden Administration finally ended Title 42 on My 11, 2023.
Just about a year ago as the end of Title 42 appeared imminent I wrote an article worth revisiting: Title 42 and Chaos on the Border
In that article, among other issues I provided information that appeared in a Judicial Watch report about how NGO (Non Government Organizations) were reaping huge government contracts to provide services of unknown millions of illegal alines, calling into question the notion od referring to NGOs as “Nonprofits.”
The actions and policies of the Biden administration that pertain to immigration are utterly impossible to comprehend.
Our immigration laws, contrary to the lies of the globalists and Radical Leftists, have nothing to do with race, religion, ethnicity or bigotry and xenophobia but about protecting public health, national security, public safety and the jobs and wages of American and lawful alien workers.
A review of 8 U.S. Code § 1182 (Inadmissible aliens).will make the purpose, importance and reasonableness of our nation’s immigration laws crystal clear.
The enforcement and administration of our nation’s immigration laws profoundly impacts nearly every challenge and threat America and Americans face in this especially dangerous era beginning with national security and public safety.
My recent article addressed my concerns about how the Biden administration’s immigration policies are great exacerbating the threats America faces from foreign terrorist organizations, particularly since the disastrous U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. I urge you to read my article: Multiple Biden Calamities Make 9/11 Commission Report ‘Required Reading’
The primary shared mission of the military services of the united States is to keep America’s enemies as far from our shores as possible. Up close and in persons, that vital mission falls to the Coastguard, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony, was convened in the wake of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001 to identify the vulnerabilities that the 19 hijacker/terrorist exploited in order to enter the united States to carry out their deadly attacks to make certain that those vulnerabilities were addressed to prevent future such attacks.
The 9/11 Commission looked back to the decade leading up to the 9/11 terror attacks to try to leave no stone unturned.
The Commission determined that in each case multiple failures of the immigration system enabled international terrorist to easily enter the united States on multiple occasions utilizing a number of ploys and were subsequently able to “hide in plain sight” by acquiring false or altered identity documents such s driver’s licenses and committing immigration fraud as they went about their deadly preparations.
The Executive Summary of the Final 9/11 Commission Report included this excerpt:
Permeable Borders and Immigration Controls
There were opportunities for intelligence and law enforcement to exploit al Qaeda’s travel vulnerabilities. Considered collectively, the 9/11 hijackers
• included known al Qaeda operatives who could have been watchlisted;
• presented passports manipulated in a fraudulent manner;
• presented passports with suspicious indicators of extremism;
• made detectable false statements on visa applications;
• made false statements to border officials to gain entry into the United States; and
• violated immigration laws while in the United States.
Neither the State Department’s consular officers nor the Immigration and Naturalization Service’s inspectors and agents were ever considered full partners in a national counterterrorism effort. Protecting borders was not a national security issue before 9/11.
The attorneys and federal agents who were assigned to the 9/11 Commission staff produced an official report, 9/11 and Terrorist Travel – Staff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.
This report focused specifically on the ability of the terrorists to travel around the world, enter the United States and ultimately embed themselves in the United States as they went about their deadly preparations.and carry out an attack. The preface of this report begins with the following paragraph:
It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.
Page 61 contained this passage:
Exploring the Link between Human Smugglers and Terrorists
In July 2001, the CIA warned of a possible link between human smugglers and terrorist groups, including Hamas, Hezbollah, and Egyptian Islamic Jihad.149 Indeed, there is evidence to suggest that since 1999 human smugglers have facilitated the travel of terrorists associated with more than a dozen extremist groups.150 With their global reach and connections to fraudulent document vendors and corrupt government officials, human smugglers clearly have the “credentials” necessary to aid terrorist travel.
This paragraph is found on page 98 under the title “Immigration Benefits:”
Terrorists in the 1990s, as well as the September 11 hijackers, needed to find a way to stay in or embed themselves in the United States if their operational plans were to come to fruition. As already discussed, this could be accomplished legally by marrying an American citizen, achieving temporary worker status, or applying for asylum after entering. In many cases, the act of filing for an immigration benefit sufficed to permit the alien to remain in the country until the petition was adjudicated. Terrorists were free to conduct surveillance, coordinate operations, obtain and receive funding, go to school and learn English, make contacts in the United States, acquire necessary materials, and execute an attack.
Alejandro Mayorkas is the chief architect of the Biden Administration’s immigration policies and played a similarly major role when he served the Obama administration including the creation of DACA (Deferred Action, Childhood Arrivals).
In an earlier article, Providing Former Taliban Associates with Visas and Asylum: The Biden administration continues its assault on U.S. national security I stated:
Putting Mayorkas in charge of DHS is the equivalent of putting an arsonist in charge of the fire department!
Therefore it could be said that the termination of title 42 by the Biden administration is the metaphorical equivalent of pouring an accelerant onto a raging fire!
Aliens whose identities cannot be determined or verified are being released into the United States with no regard as their actual backgrounds or potential links to criminal or terrorist organizations.
Many of these aliens have not even been given any paperwork by DHS and those aliens who have hearing dates will not be required to show up in immigration court form many years. At present, such aliens in New York City are getting hearing dates that are more than ten years from now.
As the human tsunami of aliens growing by the day, it is likely that it won’t be long before hearing dates will stretch even further into the future.
Now I as you to consider the quote I provided previously from the 9/11 Commission Staff Report on Terrorist Travel:
In many cases, the act of filing for an immigration benefit sufficed to permit the alien to remain in the country until the petition was adjudicated. Terrorists were free to conduct surveillance, coordinate operations, obtain and receive funding, go to school and learn English, make contacts in the United States, acquire necessary materials, and execute an attack.
Terrorists will have a decade or longer to hide in plain sight as they prepare deadly terror attacks.
In this deadly game of “Hide and Seek” those who seek our demise won’t have to make much of an effort to hide because without meaningful interior enforcement, exacerbated by insane “sanctuary” policies of Radical Leftist mayors and governors there are no resources to enforce our immigration laws. (Not that Biden or Mayorkas would actually enforce our immigration laws.).
Furthermore, I have yet to hear leaders in the Republican Party call for ramping up interior enforvement- all they want to focus on is the Borer Patrol, whose mission ends when alien move from the borders of the United States to the interior of the United States.
Additionally, while the media focuses on the Southern Border, in reality, liens and contraband flow into the United States along our northern border, and along our nation’s 95,000 miles of coastline. Aliens, including criminals and terrorists also enter through America’s international airports. This was, in fact, one of the major findings of the 9/11 Commission.
This was the point to my article: Crisis On The Southern Border: Only The Tip of Biden’s Immigration Iceberg
Here is something for you to contemplate. Law enforcement officers who are involved in a shooting, doctors who are accused of making serious or deadly mistakes, motorists who are involved in serious accidents, airline pilots who are involved in a crash or serious mishaps all face thorough investigations and the potential for serious- perhaps life-altering consequences. They may lose their jobs, and or their licenses, they may be sued and they may even face criminal prosecutions and lengthy jail sentences.
Politicians, however are almost never held accountable for their decisions even when people, frequently, many people, lose their lives as a direct result of the decisions blithely made by our political elite with impunity and utter contempt for We the People.
This is hardly consistent with President Lincoln’s aspirational view of the government of the United States as being purportedly, “Of the People, by the People and for the People.”
