Criteria for being allowed into the U.S. are secret

Transparency?

On the campaign trail candidate Joe Biden promised to create a “fair and humane” immigration system. Instead, the Biden administration has created a system in which the criteria for being allowed into this country at the Southern border a deep, dark secret. Would-be immigrants show up at the border with no idea whether they will be allowed in or sent back to Mexico, nor why.

Is it humane for families to trek for months across dangerous, cartel-controlled expanses with no rationale expectation of being admitted?

According to an Associated Press account today, the Biden administration releases most children traveling alone to relatives in this country and gives them notices to appear in immigration court. “Nearly 9,500 such children arrived in February, up 60 percent from a month earlier,” the story relates.

But six out of 10 families picked up by the Border Patrol in February were sent back across the border. The number of family arrivals in February topped 19,200, more than double the previous month.

The anecdotal lede on the AP story recounts how one family from Honduras with children ages 3 and 5 were given bus tickets to Oklahoma to join an in-law, while a mother from El Salvador and her 8-year-old daughter was “being banished to a violent Mexican border city with no food or money and sleeping on the concrete of a plaza.”

What is our immigration law? Who knows? It is a secret.

    It appears to me that anyone that can say “Biden ask me to come” get in!

  2. Bill says:

    So much for this “open and transparent” Biden Administration. Glad you asked the question but don’t think the rest of the media will ask.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Transparency is for losers.
    -republicans for Trump

  4. Athos says:

    Who do you think is really running the show?

    Don’t make me laugh by saying “Joe Biden”.

    What possible upside do these fools think will come by letting in all these people?

  5. More Democratic voters, perhaps?

  6. Bill says:

    Evidently the newest ploy in the Biden Administration’s bag of tricks is a news blackout on the border facilities by denying media access to alleged “inhumane” facilities. Meantime, the complacent and complicit media is not making much of a fuss about it other than “urging” Biden.to allow more access. Imagine for a minute if this were a Trump decision instead of a Biden decision.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa

    “Imagine for a minute this were a Trump decision?”

    You mean, that Trump would have acted to deny the press access to…something?

    Geez man, in case you missed the last 4 years, you didn’t have to imagine that because that was all there was to the Trump administration; the absolute denial of the right of Americans to see what there government was doing because Trump said the press was their enemy.

    And strangely enough, all there was around here from Bill and Ted was…silence.

    Nice to see they weren’t just dead only waiting for a democrat to do something they could complain about.

    This newfound concern for the immigrants fleeing hellish conditions is touching.
