The Morning Report - 9/20/21


Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and the autumnal equinox. As usual, there are a number of things popping all at once, each in its own right that under normal circumstances would be major news, so it's difficult to try to zero in on just one thing. That said, the catastrophe at our southern border, which has all but been erased since late last January, will take the lead because of its magnitude on its own and because it impacts a couple of other issues. Most notably, the Afghanistan disaster and the $3.5 trillion dollar nail in the coffin of American society.

So upwards of 15,000 migrants are gathered in, under and around a bridge in Mexico but the wrinkle to this whole thing is that they're Haitian. Now, it's one thing for Guatemalans, Salvadorans and even people from as far south as Patagonia to schlep up to the Rio Grande and demand asylum (more than likely in trucks and buses bought and paid for by a certain Nazi collaborator among others). But Port au Prince is about 2,000 miles to Del Rio. Mostly over water. So, what the hell is going on here?

The surprising answer, which the migrants provided independently in different places and at different times, was universal: on Sunday, September 12, the Mexican government effectively sent a mass of migrants it had bottled up for months in its southern states up to the American border. This move, which appears to have been done under the cover of Mexico's independence week of celebration known as El Grito, essentially foisted a humanitarian problem onto the Americans in a single week.

A quick background is necessary to understand what the migrants were saying. In short, when it was newly installed in January, the Biden [junta] began to pressure Mexico to maintain and use its National Guard and immigration bureaucracy to slow the flow of expected caravans and of tens of thousands of Haitians and other migrants coming in from all over the world. This was a fairly quiet diplomatic campaign, and it coincided with billions in promised U.S. aid and other benefits such as covid vaccines. It was a different approach from the Trump style of threatening to damage the Mexican economy with tariffs unless the leadership slowed U.S.-bound illegal immigration coming through Guatemala.

In response to Biden's softer approach with gifts, Mexico apparently responded with a lighter version of a Trump-era tactic, which was to require that migrants entering from Guatemala be held in the southern state of Chiapas, in the border city of Tapachula, until they applied for and obtained temporary legal permits. National Guard roadblocks reinforced the policy.

As CIS [Center for Immigration Studies] reported in March from Mexico, many thousands of immigrants willing to invest in bribes and smuggling fees obviously find ways around the National Guard. But many thousands of others chose not to invest in these expensive end-runs and stayed in Tapachula for months hoping for cheaper Mexican papers solution.

Probably by design, the documents were slow to come, taking three, four or five months. A sea of migrants built up behind this bureaucratic dam, tens of thousands of them . . .

. . . The reason, according to the migrants CIS interviewed, the Mexican cartels in this city do not involve themselves in human smuggling as they do in other parts of northern Mexico. Migrants who get to Acuna are free to cross themselves over the river without paying a tax or smuggling fee to ruthless Mexican cartels, with no fear of violent retribution for doing so on their own. . .

. . . Many are now boarding yet more buses inside the camp, these ones provided by DHS to take them to Border Patrol processing stations. Some may be deported. But most likely will spend a day or two until they get temporary resident permits and a date to appear at an American immigration office in the city of their choice. Then under current Biden policies for families and unaccompanied minors, a great many will be released to travel anywhere in America, boarding yet more buses to those cities and towns. . .

. . . CIS could find no public reporting of any official Mexico announcement or confirmation of these immigrant accounts.

But if their accounts prove to be true, Mexico's decision presents a clear diplomatic affront to the Biden [junta], transferring a significant threat management and humanitarian challenge to America, not to mention a potential political problem for the Biden [junta]. . .

. . . In a sign of keen awareness that the Del Rio encampment situation portends political damage in an area where polls show Biden is already very weak, the [junta] has picked a strategy of not speaking about it and working to make sure no one else did either.

The White House had not addressed the camp. Up until Friday, DHS was content to let the city of Del Rio lead a press conference about national immigration policy and what was happening.

The federal government barred reporters from touring the site and rarely made officials available for questions. At one point, the Federal Aviation Administration issued a ban on unmanned aerial vehicles over the bridge area, a measure that seemed aimed at Fox News, which has fielded a drone team to photograph the migrant shantytown.

Although this a very thorough report from the CIS, it doesn't tell us how thousands upon thousands of Haitians, among others from nations that are nowhere near Mexico, let alone our former southern border, got to the Rio Grande in the first place. More than likely it is not just Soros blood money but more than likely your tax dollars at work.

Funny how Haitians can't seem to cross the border they share with the Dominican Republic, but traveling thousands of miles across the Caribbean and then inland to Del Rio is a breeze. True, the DR doesn't offer food stamps, section 8 housing, free healthcare and schools. But you can bet your bottom dollar that the island of Hispaniola is divided by a very effective border fence and the Dominicans guard it closely. While not as dramatic as a night shot from space of the Korean peninsula, Haitian and Dominican society are in many ways like night and day. And the activities of the Clinton Crime Family surely didn't help the situation.

Yet while we're all looking at Del Rio, planeloads of unvetted, unvaccinated and more than likely unreconstructed practitioners of the "Religion of Peace" are winging their way to a city and town near you, eager to partake of baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and Chevrolet. Or, more than likely burqas, joy-buzzer-clipping, infidel hunting and sharia law.

Last week, the Biden [junta] announced that the first group of roughly 36,000 Afghans brought to the U.S. at rapid speed will be resettled across 46 states -- including Texas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

With more details from the Biden [junta] on the resettlement operation, more Republican governors have come out to support the plan. In August, without having vetting or screening details, 10 Republican governors announced their support for the plan and asked Biden to resettle Afghans in their states.

Those 10 Republican governors include South Carolina's Henry McMaster, Maryland's Larry Hogan, Massachusetts' Charlie Baker, Utah's Spencer Cox, Georgia's Brian Kemp, Arkansas' Asa Hutchinson, Arizona's Doug Ducey, Iowa's Kim Reynolds, Oklahoma's Kevin Stitts, and Vermont's Phil Scott.

The blathering is that all of these refugees have been fully vetted. Considering we bugged out of Afghanistan faster than you can say "I-keeeeel-you," I rate these statements as beyond insulting. But keep voting even more harder-er! And at least we won't have any more mean tweets. On a somewhat positive note, the $3.5 trillion final transmogrification of America into a flaming socialist dung heap has had the brakes put on it by the surprising reservations of Democrats Manchin and Sinema. As with all these bills, they are never about what they are labeled as but what's buried deep in the fine print on page 877 or thereabouts. In there is, you guessed it, amnesty for millions already here and more than likely under that bridge in Del Rio and from every corner of the soon to be Greater Xi Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere.

But what's this from the Senate parliamentarian?

"A preliminary ruling from Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough, obtained by Fox, would bar Democrats from adding immigration provisions to the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.

"Democrats did not have firm legislative text nor a total price tag for the bill. So it's hard to see how there is an absolute ruling on this," Pergram said. "But, budget reconciliation bills, which Democrats were using to avoid a filibuster, must be strictly fiscal in nature and can't add to the deficit. It was believed that this push to add immigration to the bill was too policy driven."

"This is a blow to Democrats and progressives who pushed to add immigration provisions to the bill. This will cause problems if Democrats have to slash the total size of the size of the legislation to mollify moderate Democrats," Pergram continued. "It was thought that lopping immigration provisions into the bill could help placate liberals if Democrats have to trim the size of the legislation."

Pergram added that the key part from MacDonough's decision was that including immigration as part of reconciliation "is further evidence that the policy changes of this proposal far outweigh the budgetary impact scored to it and it is not appropriate for inclusion in reconciliation."

Now, from what I understand (and I could be wrong), Veep Throat Harris and/or Cuck Schemer can disregard MacDonough's decision but the propagandists are all reporting this as a major blow if not insurmountable problem. Given the fact that this junta does not care for the rule of law, I will assume that some sort of decree will come down from Kalorama or wherever and amnesty shall be "deemed" to have passed.

And the beat-down goes on.
