The U.S. Supreme Court dropped the ball by declaring that they would not force President Biden to stop the illegal immigration that is overwhelming our states, institutions, and communities. With only Justice Alito dissenting, the Court ruled that the courts are powerless to order President Biden and his minions to obey the laws that require him to refuse entry, detain, and deport illegal migrants.
But just two days later, the people of Greece delivered the opposite verdict as they handed a landslide victory to the Trump-like candidate who has cracked down against illegal immigration there. His victory was by the largest margin in Greece in a half-century, and three new political parties even more conservative did well enough to win seats in its parliament. Kyriakos Mitsotakis won by promising to extend a border fence to a region where many migrants are currently sneaking into Greece. A week earlier, voters in the traditionally liberal Finland elected what was described as “the most right-wing government ever … taking a hard line on … immigration.”
The previously immigrant-welcoming countries of Denmark and Sweden have also shifted sharply to the right on this issue in recent years. Denmark’s current policies include imprisonment of illegal aliens with solitary confinement and seizure of assets, in order to deter migrants from entering that small country illegally.
The people of Europe are getting a taste of illegal immigration unlike what they’ve seen in the past, and they are spitting out that bitter pill in droves. The crime, drugs, and cultural breakdown that excessive immigration brings is causing great harm to the cultural centers of Europe, and the same is happening on our own shores. The only question is whether or not the American people, like those in Europe, will wake up to this threat before the damage becomes irreversible. The worldwide populist uprising against open borders is a harbinger of our own presidential election next year. On this issue, Biden is hopelessly out of touch with the American people.
