Secretary of State Antony Blinken made an announcement on Sunday that is sure to send anyone who is looking to maintain the same level of peace that we enjoyed under the Trump administration into a rage. For those who are not already aware, Trump administration asylum agreements with three Central American countries are slated to be abandoned.
Three executive orders were signed by Joe Biden that put a stop to the previous agreements. No one seems particularly surprised, either. Biden’s been on the warpath since he was sworn in. The border between the United States and Mexico has never been less secure. Partnerships with Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador have been eliminated in the blink of an eye.
Border advocates and their needs now come first, sad as it is to say. According to Blinken, Asylum Cooperative Agreements with the Governments of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras are now suspended. The official progress to terminate these agreements is underway. Citizens of the aforementioned countries will no longer have to seek asylum at home first.
This process was put into place to ease the overcrowding that takes place at our border facilities. Immigration judges and border patrol are often overwhelmed by the conditions at the southern border.
“We will deliver on @POTUS’s vision of safe, orderly, and humane regional migration. As we suspend and terminate the Asylum Cooperative Agreements with the Governments of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, we will take concrete steps toward greater partnership & collaboration,” Blinken tweeted.
Biden and his cabinet want to act like Trump walked into the office and made these agreements a reality. It took three years of hard work and careful negotiations. The agreements haven’t even been formally enacted and there’s been a freeze on much of the contact between the United States and Honduras because of the pandemic.
In other words, Biden is merely putting on a big show for the far-left constituents who want to live in a world with no borders whatsoever. They are not actually doing anything and that’s how the Democrats like it. This is not a party that truly cares about helping anyone out. They are all about themselves and that’s all there is to it.
Their other main goal is making sure that everyone knows they stand in opposition to Trump. It’s not a particularly noble objective but this is just who they are now. Blinken is playing a dangerous game here but he does not seem to realize it.
“To be clear, these actions do not mean that the U.S. border is open. While we are committed to expanding legal pathways for protection and opportunity here and in the region, the United States is a country with borders and laws that must be enforced,” said Blinken in the statement.
“We are also committed to providing safe and orderly processing for all who arrive at our border, but those who attempt to migrate irregularly are putting themselves and their families at risk on what can be a very dangerous journey.”
Team Biden also seems to think that their approach is going to be more sophisticated than the Obama approach. They’re bound and determined to convince people that they are going to do a better job with border control than their predecessors. “We’re not just rolling back the Trump policies, which were at best superficial and ideological, but we’re going beyond the Obama administration,” said Thomas Saenz, president of Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
“This is a much more sophisticated view of seeing the issue from the root causes and a recognition that the root causes in the Northern Triangle are in part caused by the U.S.,” Saenz continued. If Biden has his way, requirements will be lessened and more border facilities will be constructed. America Comes the last crowd is sure to love these ideas! No one has learned anything since the Obama administration and our border personnel will only continue to suffer.
