Joe Biden has been using his effort to ban the word, Alien,” instead of putting any real force towards fixing his border crisis, according to The Western Journal.
Instead of “alien,” you are supposed to use the words “noncitizen,” “noncitizen unaccompanied children,” “undocumented noncitizen,” and “civic integration.”
“The number of migrant children reported in Mexico rose to 3,500 at the end of March from 380 at the start of the year, according to the Children’s Fund, or UNICEF.”
“The number includes data from Mexico’s National Migration Institute and other official sources, and provides a detailed look into the crisis.”
U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott said, “This memorandum serves as my official nonconcurrence to the proposed updated terminology for U.S. Customs and Border Protection communications and materials. I will not undermine this effort; however, I cannot endorse it.”
“Despite every attempt by USBP leadership to ensure that all official messaging remained consistent with law, fact, and evidence, there is no doubt that the reputation of the USBP has suffered because of the many outside voices.”
“Mandating the use of terms which are inconsistent with law has the potential to further erode public trust in our government institutions.”
The Tribune said, “Other provisions would include expanding and improving legal and translating services in asylum cases, focusing on protections for unaccompanied children to eliminate placement with sex offenders and child abusers, and increasing the number of judges, asylum officers, Immigration and Customs Enforcement staff, and Customs and Border Patrol workers near the border.”
From The Western Journal:
That has led to deteriorating conditions for children being held at the border, an issue Democrats seemed deeply concerned with during the Trump administration. That concern has mysteriously disappeared while their party occupies the White House.
Biden and his administration have continually downplayed the situation at the border as they ignore the facts of the situation.
It’s clear Biden wants to politicize the border crisis, which brings us to the second problem with the policy banning words like “alien.”
According to Breitbart, Scott said the U.S. Border Patrol Agency has always been an apolitical agency, and maintained it needs to stay that way. In his estimation, the new policy change threatens that apolitical stance.
The Texas Tribune reported Thursday that Republican Sen. John Cornyn of Texas and Democratic Sen. Krysten Sinema of Arizona introduced a bipartisan bill in the Senate aimed at addressing the border crisis by establishing four new migrant processing centers.
This legislation presents actual solutions that could at the very least be a starting point for Democrats and Republicans to work together toward some sort of solution.
Sadly, as of now, it appears the Biden administration has much more interest in banning terms than they do addressing the real problems at the southern border.
