Why are people freaking out about a supposed immigration crisis? After all, there is plenty of evidence that the “Biden surge” is a media manufactured “crisis” started by racist Trump staffer Stephen Miller and Fox News. In particular, apprehensions at the southern border were rising sharply even before Joe Biden was elected.
So why the sudden concern? Clearly to distract us from GOP efforts at voter suppression (and insurrection, and selling the country out to foreign dictators, including Putin, and even the GOP failures to fight the Covid-19 pandemic). Indeed, the GOP started blaming Biden for the ongoing border problems just one day after he was sworn in as president.
We’ve been trying to solve the immigration problem since long before Ronald Reagan got elected.
