Last fall, candidate Joe Biden railed against a practice that everyone can agree was wrong:
The ability for one human being to “own” another.
Also known as slavery.
The 13th Amendment to the Constitution was passed in 1865. It did away with human bondage in America. Here’s what it says:
“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”
And on his first day in office, he signed an executive order that cited “the Civil War and the abolition of slavery.” Here’s what he said after he signed the EO:
“We’re finally now getting to the point where we’re going to be addressing the original sin of this country, 400 years old… slavery and all the vestiges of it.”
Joe Biden is against the slavery of 1619 to 1865. But now his open border policy has enabled the modern slave trade. That’s what Rep. Tom McClintock said in an interview with Deroy Murdock at Headline USA:
“Biden’s open-border policies have produced the largest human-trafficking operation since the international slave trade. To the extent that immigrants are forced to labor as indentured servants to the crime cartels, these policies have reintroduced slavery into the United States.”
Customs and Border Protection reported 711,567 land encounters with illegal aliens on the U.S.–Mexico border. Compare this number to 148,075 during a similar time-span last year. An increase of a whopping 380.5%.
Now, not all of these people are slaves. But the ones who are can be hidden easily and blend in with the crowd.
“We have what can be described as modern-day slavery,” said Ira Mehlman, spokesman for the Federation of American Immigration Reform.
“Human traffickers (as opposed to smugglers) lure unsuspecting migrants with promises of all sorts of opportunity in the U.S., and then hold them hostage once they arrive here with threats of violence against them, or family members back home.”
Often, those trafficked are forced to pay their debts through sex trades.
“Since many do not have the cash up front, they are required to work it off once here. Not unlike the Mafia, that can entail some significant accrual of interest, thereby extending the period of servitude.”
Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies agrees. She’s appalled at the apathy of today’s federal government towards this issue and these people.
“The Biden–Harris administration refuses to acknowledge that they are enabling this entirely predictable criminal and exploitative result of their policies.”
“They prefer to see themselves as saviors of the migrants, even if their policies are literally enslaving some of the migrants to the cartels and smugglers. If there are some horrible crimes that happen, well they ‘fix’ them by awarding the victims with a U or T visa, and their conscience is laundered.”
This is typical liberal politics. Say one thing, while your policies do another.
The Left can’t blame Trump for this policy failure. This is all on Team Donkey.
And while Biden was selected President, it’s obvious that he doesn’t make policy. That’s due to his poor physical and mental health.
Whoever is in charge of policy doesn’t care how this open borders policy affects Americans or non-Americans.
Elections have consequences. That’s why it’s critical for the GOP to win back the House and Senate in the 2022 mid-terms. And for the right Republican to take the White House in 2024.
