The Rude Pundit: You Cannot Talk About Biden's Border Actions Without Talking About ...

You Cannot Talk About Biden's Border Actions Without Talking About Trump's Gutting of the Federal Government

snip//

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a statement last week laying this all out: "The prior administration completely dismantled the asylum system. The system was gutted, facilities were closed, and they cruelly expelled young children into the hands of traffickers. We have had to rebuild the entire system, including the policies and procedures required to administer the asylum laws that Congress passed long ago." A CNN fact check found Mayorkas was accurate in his assessment of the absolute sabotage of the American immigration system on the Southwest border. But, of course, the verminous conservative criminals from the Trump administration are beshitting the airwaves, with Stephen "Most Likely to Actually Be Drinking Baby Blood" Miller, the architect of Trump's megafuckery at the border, screeching that Mayorkas is lying. Honestly, I could come up with lots of awful karmic and physical punishments for Miller, but I'm pretty sure all of them would just give that coprophagic bitch an erection.

But it's not just Mayorkas. Julie Chavez Rodriguez, the director of the White House's office of intergovernmental affairs, said, "There were aspects of our legal immigration system that had been gutted and a department that lacked the personnel to administer our laws," with another official adding, "When we came into office, like, it was a disaster. I mean, really. The staffing wasn't in place, the structures weren't in place." Oh, and let's not forget what complete cockfleas Trump's team were to Biden's during the transition, so they couldn't even get the full picture of what they were walking into. Shit was decimated. You don't turn that around overnight.

Even with all this chaos, what's going at the border sucks, but it's been sucking for decades, and it's sucked far, far worse than it sucks now. And the actual situation is far, far more complicated than the manipulated media will talk about. The current surge of unaccompanied kids began in November, for instance. And, again, again, again, you can't leave out the damage done to the very agencies that are supposed to handle migrant issues, and you can't discount the corruption of the Customs and Border Patrol and ICE themselves. Yes, Biden has left in place some Trump policies so far as he's dealt with shit like the pandemic (which also has an effect on shit like the number of beds...like I said, it's fucking complicated) and the economic recovery. It's only been two months. Could we check in around July 20 to see how it's going? To see if shit's improved? To see if Congress might actually do something to unfuck our immigration system?

No matter what, you can bet that the jackals and howler monkeys of the right will be yowling like they slammed their nuts in a car door. Or perhaps they'll just continue to show you who they are, like Republican Senator John Cornyn did today. He tweeted out comments from Bill Clinton and Barack Obama condemning "illegal immigrations." Then he followed that with this tweet: "President Biden has instead emphasized the humane treatment of immigrants, regardless of their legal status."

Kind of takes your breath away, no? This mongrel nation only exists as it is because of immigrants, almost all of whom were treated like shit by other immigrants when they first arrived. You'd think acting with humanity wouldn't be derision-worthy, but, well, that's so American, I suppose.

(Note: The First Nations people decided to help the pasty white asses that arrived to this continent rather than murder them. Whites have always been shitty about repaying their debts.)

2. Just. Keep. Telling. The. Truth. About. How. Trump. Gutted. The. Federal. Government....

Just like Steve Bannon and that Russian geopolitics mastermind wanted to have done.

Never forget. Never let the GQP or the media get away with blaming Biden or any other Democrat.

Thanks for this piece, babylonsister.

5. it's ridiculous dems talk about the border without recognizing the part talk radio has played

in distorting the issue for 20 years.

why do corporate republicans love the cheap labor that keeps american wages down in general but the media that those corporations love and depend on attack them and want to keep them out? because after about 2000 the roves needed to demonize them to sell voter suppression

and we still let them use 1500 radio stations licensed to operate in the public interest to keep selling the same shit

and we still let at least 87 universities to endorse 260 radio stations that sell voter suppression, racism, trumpism, and now pivot obstruct gun reform.

the biggest political mistake in history continues

6. 'coprophagic' - now there's a word you don't see often enough.

Thanks to an X-Files episode entitled War of the Coprophages, I know what it means! (feces consumer)

Well played, Rude Pundit.

7. Lawrence O'Donnell tonight

delivered a good, reality-based explanation of the border situation, acknowledging that it is "permanent and complex."
