During his address at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, former President Trump asked the large crowd the following question: “Do you miss me yet?”
If only he knew how much.
In the span of six short weeks, America has gone from a nation of dignity, respect, and safety to one of ridicule, danger, and risk.
Thanks, Joe! Wherever you are!
Some examples are in order.
Six Weeks of Woes
First, President Biden has systematically gutted Trump’s strict immigration policies and has, once again, allowed people to enter and/or stay in the country illegally. For example, Biden recently decided to cancel Operation Talon, a program which former President Trump implemented to remove convicted sex offenders living in the United States illegally. As reported in Human Events, state attorneys general throughout the country recently signed a letter in which they opposed this cancellation and voiced their concerns with Biden’s decision:
“The United States’ population of illegal immigrants includes disturbingly large numbers of criminals with prior convictions for sexual crimes. According to data collected by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, during the period from October 2014 to May 2018 ICE arrested 19,572 illegal aliens with criminal convictions for whom the most serious prior conviction was a conviction for a sex-related offense.”
“Meanwhile, an increasing number of illegal aliens are entering the United States after having been previously convicted of sexual offenses. The cancellation of [Operation Talon] effectively broadcasts to the world that the United States is now a sanctuary jurisdiction for sexual predators. This message creates a perverse incentive for foreign sexual predators to seek to enter the United States illegally and assault more victims, both in the process of unlawful migration and after they arrive. It will also broadcast the message to other criminal aliens who have committed other offenses that any kind of robust enforcement against them is unlikely.”
Due to Biden’s loose and nonsensical immigration policies, he has also jeopardized the health of American citizens. Specifically, a group of migrants who were recently released in Brownsville, Texas tested positive for the coronavirus. As reported in Border Report:
In the Gulf Coast city of Brownsville, 108 migrants released during the past month have shown to be carrying the coronavirus, U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, (D-TX) said Wednesday. And he says that is putting the south Texas border community – as well as the volunteers who help them – and the border agents, at risk.
“They tested some of the people who got put at the bus station in Brownsville and according to the rapid tests, about 108 tested positive. So basically that creates a situation that they are letting people who are positive (for coronavirus) get on buses and with the permission of Homeland Security they can go anywhere in the United States,” Cuellar said during an online news conference.
His comments prompted outcry from Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who blamed the Biden administration on social media and called the release of migrants “a callous act.”
In other words, Biden, who promised to “control” the spread of the coronavirus, has enhanced the risk by virtue of his irresponsible immigration and border policies, and has put the interests and safety of American citizens last.
Biden (and his far-left colleagues in Congress) have also decided to jeopardize and undermine the nation’s police force(s) by way of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. As reported by Fox News:
“Championed by civil rights groups, the wide-ranging bill would overhaul standards for police tactics and conduct at the federal level. Prominent measures include a federal ban on no-knock warrants and chokeholds, limits on qualified immunity shielding police from civil lawsuits, a framework to prevent racial profiling and the establishment of a national registry on allegations of police misconduct.”
“Democrats and prominent civil rights groups argue the overhaul is necessary to combat systemic racism and prevent future police-involved deaths.”
“Republican opposition has centered in part on the bid to end qualified immunity. GOP critics, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, have argued removing the liability shield would undermine public safety and make it difficult to recruit.”
The nation’s police officers have very difficult and dangerous jobs. They serve to protect Americans and they put their lives on the line each and every day. Notwithstanding, the policies set forth in this Act will force police officers to second-guess not only what they do/how they conduct themselves in life and death circumstances that require split-second decisions, but will also force those considering a career in law enforcement to think twice due to the enhanced risk and the possible legal liability they will face.
So Many Blunders in So Little Time
The president’s blunders didn’t stop there. Biden also cancelled the Keystone Pipeline and eliminated many high-paying jobs, undermined Trump’s phenomenal progress in the Middle East, supported teachers unions at the expense of American families trying to make a living, and reduced consumer/business confidence.
Six weeks into the Biden administration (and a Democrat-controlled Congress), our borders are dangerously porous, Covid-infected migrants are freely entering and/or staying in the country, police officers are less safe, less protected, and more vulnerable, and those previously convicted of certain types of crimes are free to stay in the country despite the fact that they are here illegally. As a result of Biden’s policies, Americans have lost jobs, consumer confidence is down, and tensions in the Middle-East are worsening.
In just six weeks, America is less safe.
In just six weeks, America is more vulnerable.
In just six weeks, America is less respected.
In just six weeks, America is less prosperous.
So, yes, President Trump. America sorely misses you!
