I am writing to you today because the Department of Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, went on national TV this weekend and stated in effect that “the borders are closed and that illegal immigrants should not be coming here”. Yet, President Biden stated in January that there is a moratorium on the deportation of illegal immigrants. What type of nonsense is this?
That is the same as saying, “you should lock your home doors and windows but the courts are not prosecuting breaking, entering, and theft”. 30 years ago a president would have been slammed by the press and others for this type of double talk. I hope our nation still has the capacity to be sickened by it.
The border crises has really made me think. When I ponder all those people traveling 2 thousand miles with children and babies, I have to ask “why?”. The answer is as old as time itself: “to get something for nothing”. Can the word “free” really make you risk your life and the lives of those you love?
