The Democrats have made it apparently clear they have way bigger problems to deal with than the Southern Border. For months, the border has become an open highway as countless immigrants cross without any sort of repercussion. The most recent projections predict over 1.2 million immigrants will be detained at the border, with many more crossing completely undetected. And while the Democrats were fine canceling Trump’s border wall, they recently approved spending $870 million on “border security” in the middle east that includes – a wall. 

On Tuesday, the House Appropriations Committee, controlled by the Democrats, was eager to release their Department of Defense funding bill. As mentioned above, the bill included $870 million for foreign border security, and that is taxpayer dollars by the way. But what makes it completely absurd is the fact that the bill strips “all” funding for a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. 

For the middle east budget, countries like Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia, Oman, and Lebanon will receive funds to help with security and border protection. Of that budget, $150 million will be given to Jordan to enhance its border security. Another $500 million is to be allocated “to provide assistance to the government of Jordan to support the armed forces of Jordan and to enhance security along its borders.”

While the budget for the middle east is more than generous, the Department of Homeland Security released a separate budget that gutted any funds for a U.S. border wall. Again, the House Democrats are rescinding a staggering $2.06 billion that was intended for border wall construction and U.S. Border Patrol agents. Sadly, that’s not all as another $100 million that was meant for the wall will now go to the Department of Interior. And remember, the border is setting records as we speak. Agents are over-worked and detention centers are bursting, yet Democrats believe the budget needs reducing. 

As the Democrats continue to ignore the border, it should be noted that it was Joe Biden’s Catch and Release policy that has led to the crisis America is now facing. Under Biden’s program, illegal immigrants are detained for a short time with DHS and then they are released into the United States, free to go.
