Washington Post Warns Democrats: The Border Issue Is Bad for You and Getting Worse

Fresh pickings from the in-house newsletter of the progressive-fascist Democrat Establishment.

Even Democrats in this Siena College poll are saying things that sound somewhat reminiscent of the views of immigration hawks in the GOP:

* Nearly as many New York Democrats said migrants coming to the state over the past 20 years have been a "burden" (35 percent) as said they have been a "benefit" (37 percent).

* 75 percent of New York Democrats said the recent influx of migrants to the state was at least a "somewhat serious" problem. Nearly half (47 percent) said it was a "very serious" problem.

* 53 percent of New York Democrats agreed with the statement that "New Yorkers have already done enough for new migrants and should now work to slow the flow of migrants to New York." (The alternative was that the state should "accept new migrants and work to assimilate them into New York," a position with which 41 percent of the Democratic respondents agreed.)

The Democrat Establishment Newsletter points out that New York has been the state hardest hit by illegal immigration -- apart from the border states, of course.

But national polls also show that even Democrats are tiring of the endless stream of illegal aliens:

A Fox News poll this month showed that a majority of Democrats were at least "very" concerned about border security. And last month, the same pollster showed three-quarters of Democrats describing the situation at the southern border as either an "emergency" or a "major problem." That's double the 37 percent saying the same in early 2019.

Quinnipiac University polling this month showed 71 percent of independents and 30 percent of Democrats disapproved of Biden's handling of immigration.

Another Fox News poll last week showed voters favored Republicans on border security more than they did on any other issue, 59 percent to 35 percent. Even 22 percent of Democrats favored the GOP on the issue -- the most crossover support among more than a dozen issues tested.

NBC News polling in September echoed that, showing Republicans stretching their advantage on immigration to 18 points.

Both are at least tied for the biggest GOP advantage on the issue since 2006.

That last one in particular shows how drastically this issue has shifted; in fact, NBC polling showed Democrats had held an edge on immigration throughout Trump's presidency.

But we're in a very different place now. And perhaps no issue demonstrates that like the issue of the border wall.

Although the percentage of those supporting the building of the wall was mired in the 30s for much of Trump's presidency, recent polls show it suddenly hitting majority support -- 52-44 in the Quinnipiac poll and 57-40 in the Fox poll (including 27 percent of Democrats).

More from Hot Air.

The Center of Immigration Studies points out that America has two immigration systems: The official legal immigration system, and the unofficial but officially-tolerated illegal immigration system.

And Biden's admissions via the illegal immigration system dwarf those of the legal one.

The Center has recently reported that the Biden administration "paroled" more than 221,000 nationals of Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela into the United States under its "CHNV parole program", plus nearly 226,000 others who applied for appointments at the Southwest border ports of entry using the CBP One mobile app. Add in 908,788 illegal entrants who were apprehended by Border Patrol at the U.S.-Mexico line but released into the United States anyway, and the total surges to nearly 1.4 million aliens with no right to enter the United States who will be living here indefinitely anyway, thanks to the Biden administration's ad hoc illegal immigration system, which is completely divorced from Congress's limits in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

"Biden-⁠Harris Administration Announces New Border Enforcement Actions". The White House laid out the administration's plans to deal with the thousands of aliens who were expected to enter the United States daily once CDC Title 42 expulsion orders were lifted (which occurred on May 11) in a "fact sheet" captioned "Biden-⁠Harris Administration Announces New Border Enforcement Actions".

You can ignore any references to actual enforcement in that document (which have yet to really be implemented, as explained below) and focus on two paragraphs in the fact sheet that appear under the header "Expand Legal Pathways for Safe, Orderly, and Humane Migration" (itself a misnomer, but that's beside the point).

It's literally always the same thing. "We want an end to illegal immigration."

"Would you accept an increase in legal immigration as an alternative?"

No, we will not. How many times are you going to "offer" this alternative?

CHNV Parole. The first of those "pathways" is the "CHNV parole program", the name an abbreviation for the four countries whose nationals benefit from it: Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela.

As the fact sheet explains, it is an expansion of a parole program implemented in October 2022 for Venezuelan nationals, which allows them to enter the United States on two-year periods of parole, complete with the promise of employment authorization and, ultimately, access to government benefits.

Once the "C"," H", and "N" nationals were added to the "V", the administration's plan was to admit up to 30,000 aliens from those four countries to the United States monthly, ostensibly to curb efforts by those aliens to cross the border illegally.

That rationale doesn't pass what my contracts professor described as the "smell test", because nothing in the Biden plan requires the aliens who benefit from CHNV parole to demonstrate any intention to cross the border illegally. They can apply for that parole from any country they are in and just fly directly to international airports in the interior of the United States -- which as my colleague Todd Bensman has revealed, more than 221,000 CHNV parolees have.

That is literally the same as trying to curb shoplifting by standing at the front of the store and handing out gift cards. Some who take the gift cards may have come with light-fingered intentions, but the rest are just receiving a freebie.

In any event, in FY 2023, the Biden administration allowed 232,863 inadmissible foreign nationals to enter the United States on CHNV parole.
