America is a racist country where young black men are shot at random by evil white police officers.
America’s “system” is infected with “racism.” Nobody can really point out what the “system” is or why it’s racist, but it’s keeping the black man down.
That’s what the Critical Race Theory promoters, including politicians and activists, would have us believe.
Because America is so racist and anti-black, tens of thousands of black Haitians are fighting to get into the United States and to stay here.
It makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
If a country persecutes a certain race or ethnicity, wouldn’t members of that race or ethnicity try to stay out of that country?
The recent Haitian invasion of Del Rio, Texas, exemplifies these contradictions.
There was a big hullabaloo over the Border Patrolmen on horseback.
Here’s how distinguished Congresswoman Maxine Waters described the situation:
“What we witnessed takes us back hundreds of years. What we witnessed was worse than what we witnessed in slavery. Cowboys — with their reins, again — whipping Black people, Haitians, into the water where they’re scrambling and falling down when all they’re trying to do is escape from violence in their country.”
Where does one begin to unravel such ridiculous rhetoric?
“Worse than slavery”?
These Haitians were illegally entering the U.S. It’s the job of the Border Patrol to prevent that, though the Biden Administration does all in its power to impede the Border Patrol doing its job. But here they were trying to do their job.
The Haitians weren’t being whipped. What looked like whips to some were reins. For those not aware, reins are used by horse riders to guide the horse.
Despite the claims of Maxine Waters, these Haitians were not trying to “escape from violence in their country.” Most of them hadn’t been in Haiti for years.
In fact, many of the Haitians dumped their Chilean ID cards on the Mexican side of the border before crossing, so as not to complicate any asylum requests (which probably wouldn’t be a problem with this administration anyway).
Immigration to the U.S., both legal and illegal, is driven by our policies. If the U.S. controls its border and strictly controls immigration, few will arrive.
If the U.S. has an open border policy, as it does under the Biden administration, many will arrive.
It’s not complicated.
In Del Rio, the situation improved after Haitians heard some Haitians were being deported to Haiti, when Mexico started helping, and when Texas set up a barrier of vehicles.
But consider that the Haitian invasion was just a fraction of the overall border invasion occurring along the entire border.
Previous President Donald Trump pressured Mexico to help us by reducing the quantity of non-Mexicans passing through Mexico.
But in the case of these Haitians, they were being largely kept in far eastern Mexico, until September 12th when they were suddenly allowed to head to the U.S. border and cross it. Mexico didn’t help control the Haitian influx until later, after thousands had gotten through.
Politics and demography?
Most Haitian immigrants who wind up voting are likely to vote for the Democrats.
Of course there are exceptions.
I was in Washington D.C. on January 6th and participated in the pro-Trump march from the Ellipse to the Capitol Building, which I didn’t enter. For a time, I was marching alongside a pro-Trump Haitian immigrant among the marchers.
But the majority of Haitian immigrants can be expected to vote for the Democrats.
Is it wrong for Republicans to notice that? The Democrats certainly do!
I recommend an article about the Del Rio fiasco by Todd Bensman of the Center for Immigration Studies entitled “Takeaways from the Del Rio Migrant Camp Crisis: What Now?”
Once again, the Haitian invasion of Del Rio was just a fraction of the mass invasion of the U.S.-Mexico border, but it exemplifies the dangers of Biden’s border policy.
