Kansas Senator Roger Marshall toured the US-Mexico border this week as a massive humanitarian crisis engulfs the region; witnessing first-hand the unprecedented number of unaccompanied minors and migrants entering the United States.
“This is a processing center here about four miles from the river and the border,” said Marshall from a helicopter. “We’ve got some folks here who look like they’re staging to cross the border.”
Scenes show countless migrants in SUVs, trucks, boats and other vehicles preparing to wade across the Rio Grande into the US.
The number of minors entering the country without a single adult has tripled since Joe Biden’s swearing-in ceremony on January 20th.

As Migrants Flee To U.S. Border, Biden Official Says ‘Now Is Not The Time’
Biden promised many things on the campaign trail, not only to Americans but to foreign citizens trying to get into the country. Consistently pandering to progressive liberals and illegal immigrants, Biden and his colleagues have given hope to those who want to enter the United States anyway but legally. With Biden’s presidential win, hundreds of thousands of South American migrants have begun to make their way to the U.S. border.
Suddenly president-elect Biden and his people may have a slight understanding of the problem their rhetoric has caused. Specifically, a “migrant caravan moving from Honduras towards the U.S. border called on the incoming Biden administration to honor their ‘commitments’ to the migrants moving north, citing the incoming administration’s vow to ease Trump’s restrictions on asylum” reports Fox News.
On Sunday, “an unnamed Biden transition official said that migrants hoping to claim asylum in the U.S. during the first few weeks of the new administration ‘need to understand they’re not going to be able to come into the United States immediately” NBC News reported. The Biden official told NBC that while “there’s help on the way” now “is not the time to make the journey.”
“The situation at the border isn’t going to be transformed overnight,” said the official. “We have to provide a message that health and hope is on the way, but coming right now does not make sense for their own safety…while we put into a place processes that they may be able to access in the future” the official added.
Before even taking office, the administration is having to deal with the theoretical bed Biden has made when promising to reverse many of Trump’s border policies. “He has promised to end the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which keeps migrants in Mexico as they await their political asylum hearings” reports Fox News. Biden has also promised a pathway to legal citizenship and/or permanent residency for those already in the country illegally.
Migrant groups as well as migrant rights groups such as Pueblo Sin Fronteras are all expecting the Biden administration to give warm receptions to those hoping to cross the border.
BIDEN in NH: Democrats Can ‘Run Mickey Mouse Against This President’ and Win
Fading Democratic front-runner Joe Biden doubled-down on his party’s chances to defeat Donald Trump in 2020; saying even ‘Mickey Mouse’ has a shot at winning the White House.
“I refuse to suggest any Democrat can lose. I think, you know, we could run Mickey Mouse against this president and have a shot,” said Biden.

Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville made national headlines last week after suggesting the country won’t vote for far-left candidates like Bernie Sanders.
It’s like we’re losing our damn minds. Someone’s got to step their game up here… We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells. It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party,” said Carville.

“Most of the people aren’t into all this distracting s*** about open borders and letting prisoners vote. They don’t care. They have lives to lead. They have kids. They have parents that are sick. That’s what we have to talk about. That’s all we should talk about,” he added.
