The White House has finally revealed its “plan” to deal with migrants at the border.
Let’s just say it was not exactly received with enthusiasm.
One person even described it as nothing more than “smoke and mirrors.”
Such a Joke
The report first broke from Reuters.
The outlet, in part, reported, “The new rules for Cubans, Nicaraguans and Haitians would be modeled on an existing program for Venezuelans launched in October. The program allows up to 24,000 Venezuelans outside the United States to apply to enter the country by air through ‘humanitarian parole’ if they have U.S. sponsors. Venezuelans arrested trying to cross border are generally returned to Mexico.”
This plan appears to have a backdoor to allow the administration to continue to allow illegals to be set free inside this country.
Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies, called it a “conjurer’s trick.”
She added, “It’s really just repackaging the same Extraction Migration policy, like putting lipstick on a pig.
“They’re not trying to stop illegal migration. They’re trying to manage it so the receiving communities are not going to notice it as much and so it is not a spectacle at the border that creates political problems for them … they’re trying to do it behind smoke and mirrors.”
The Biden administration has created a “humanitarian parole” that has been given to 25,000 Venezuelans so far.
Vaughan added, “If some get in [via parole] and others do not, those people who did not get in are simply going to keep trying to cross illegally.
“They’re not really going after the fundamental incentive, which is the ability to work here.”
The mainstream media, however, is already grabbing the narrative that more are being deported than are being allowed to roam free in the country…
Title 42 will remain in effect. This video, provided to me today by a Venezuelan migrant, shows part of the journey through the Panamanian jungle.

If it makes me a horrible person that I do not have empathy for this cause, then so be it. I live in Texas and hear how much of a strain this is putting on local communities that have to somehow house these illegals that never stop coming.
Ironically, for those that do get in and find employment from Nicaragua, then send money back to their family, they are actually funding the very government they claim to be running from, as the country has a 17 percent tax on remittances.
To give you an idea, roughly $3 billion was sent back to Nicaragua in 2022. That is a hell of a lot of money for the government they hate so much.
When does it end… not anytime soon, unfortunately, as Biden has no real desire to shut down these avenues of illegal immigration.
