At the same time, the Biden administration is promising $4 billion in foreign aid to the Guatemalan government. Apparently the idea is that by bribing Guatemalan officials with lots of U.S. taxpayer money, the Guatemalan government will crack down and prevent Guatemalans from leaving the country and heading north.
At the very least, we can see one important thing — that Democrats and liberals are as fervent believers in immigration controls as Republicans and conservatives. Oh, sure, they might favor enforcing the immigration laws in ways that are different from Republicans and conservatives, but the fact is that they believe in the same immigration-control system as their rightwing political and ideological counterparts.
Therefore, under Biden we will continue to see the same sorts of things we have seen for decades in immigration, to wit:
An ongoing, never-ending, perpetual immigration crisis.
Death and suffering of people trying to illegally enter the United States.
A black market in the transportation of immigrants trying to enter the United States illegally.
The continuation of the Berlin Fence and Berlin Wall constructed by both Democrats and Republicans along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The continuation and probably an expansion of the immigration police state that exists on the U.S.-Mexico border, including warrantless trespasses on ranches and farms, violent raids on American businesses, domestic checkpoints and roving Border Patrol checkpoints on American highways, and boarding of Greyhound buses to check people's papers.
