President Biden avoids and keeps far away from our nation’s wide-open southern border, where 200,000 people from all over the world cross illegally every month since Biden took office. But rival Robert F. Kennedy Jr. went to the border town of Yuma, Arizona on June 6, and had some choice words for Biden’s failed policy.
“It was like a dystopian nightmare,” Kennedy said, “with all of these desperate people flooding across the wall, in a situation that clearly could have been prevented. People from all over the world, from Africa, from Uzbekistan, from Senegal, from Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Nepal, Tibet, India, Bangladesh, Peru, Colombia, we saw all of these people, these hundreds and hundreds of people coming across.
“And from here, they’re put on these buses, and they’re brought to the border patrol station where they’re processed. After four or five days, they’re released on their own recognizance into our country, and most of them are never seen or heard from again.”
Kennedy’s shocking firsthand commentary leaves a million questions for the voter to ponder. Who is caring for all of these migrants? Why are these migrants coming here? Where did all these millions of foreigners go after they were turned loose by the Biden administration? A clue to that last question is provided by a shocking new study from the Center for Immigration Studies, which finds that students from immigrant-led households comprise 23% of public school enrollment nationwide, and in many regions the proportion is more than 65%. Thousands of miles away, New Hampshire public schools are harmed by the immigration deluge. Next door in Massachusetts, the percentage of public students who are in immigrant households has jumped 13 to 28% in the last 30 years.
These numbers are incredible, but more importantly, they are unsustainable. We cannot provide a top-tier education for our children if there are two illegal students to every American student in their school, as is the case in some districts. For our nation’s future, we need a president with the good sense to stop the flood of illegal immigration.
