Harris Gives up-- "OK, I'll Go to the Border"

After repeatedly laughing her way out of telling a complicit press why she has refused to visit the border---our US southern border that her boss Biden assigned her to fix---Politico is reporting VP Harris will touch down on the border tomorrow---probably.

What she sees, if she opens her eyes and the press actually reports it and she actually shows up, will confirm the reason she has avoided visiting the border.

She, the president, and the head of Homeland Security all know what most Americans know: It is a human tragedy---beyond bad. Beyond a "crisis."

And it's occurring under the banner of  "compassion." "Christian" compassion in many cases.


Be informed, not misled.

Kamala goes to the border.

Politico, generally a center-left-leaning publication, is reporting that Vice President Harris will visit "the US-Mexico border this week, amid an unrelenting chorus of criticism from Republicans over her failure to visit there."

They fail to mention that a number of Democrats are also "suggesting" she get herself down there because her avoidance is becoming a political problem for them.

Although her spokesperson and a spokesperson for Homeland Security refuse to comment on it, Politico says she "will make a stop in El Paso, Texas, Friday" (tomorrow) where she is "expected to be accompanied by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas."

Her trip is scheduled 93 days after President Biden gave her the assignment---and countless laughing spams after being asked when she would go to the border.

This trip also comes just days before former President Donald Trump will be visiting the border. A number of House Republicans plan to join Trump. 

Most polls show large majorities of the American people prefer Trump's border policies to President Biden's.

Harris insists every time she talks about the border, that her role in immigration response does not pertain to the border itself, but instead focuses on "diplomatic efforts aimed at ending 'root causes' of migration from Central America."

Even NBC 's Lester Holt pressed her about going to the border.

When asked she told Holt, "We've been to the border. We've been to the border." Holt responded, "You haven't been to the border." She continued to talk about "root causes" for what's happening at the border.

What is happening at the border?

A British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) investigation into the centers in Texas where Harris will be going has revealed "alarming conditions under the Biden administration."

BBC reports that migrant children are exposed to disease, dangerous food, and sexual abuse while in confinement.

They use one word to define it: "Heartbreaking."

Fort Bliss, where Harris is expected to visit, is holding about 2000 teen-aged children who have crossed the border illegally. 

US Customs and Border Protection show that more than 78,000 children have been apprehended this year by the end of May.

Although the Biden administration touts their "transparency," their border policies show otherwise. BBC was repeatedly denied access to facilities. 

However through interviews and leaked pictures from within the tents where these kids are held they got a clear picture of what's going on.

In interviews with staff members, BBC learned there is sex abuse, epidemic COVID-19, lice outbreaks, long waits for medical attention, children being served undercooked meat---some of the kids became very ill as a result of eating it---and children being sexually abused by contracted staff.

One 15-year-old kid told BBC, "Sometimes the chicken had blood on it but we were so hungry we ate it anyway, but we got sick from it."

In addition to hundreds and hundreds of kids testing positive for COVID, they are also having outbreaks of flu, strep throat, and lice.

Children with urgent health care needs are not getting it. One kid was coughing up blood, and the staff could not get any medical help.

DHS has reported rape---so many they are now giving the girls pregnancy tests. One contractor staff person told BBC, "The other night another contractor staff was caught in a boy's tent, you know, doing things with him."

Another 15-year-old boy said, "Sometimes at night, we would cry, and during the worst times I was nearly at the point of committing suicide."

To our vice president: I hope you can hold the laughing at least until you leave.

To my friends on the so-called Christian left: Is this the biblical compassion you voted for?

You know it isn't. You were misled.

Actually, it's both anti-biblical and immoral.

How can you vote for politicians with these kinds of policies? Then claim to be doing the "biblical" thing in the name of "Christian compassion?"

The policies that are fostering this kind of child abuse are neither Christian nor compassionate.

The Left is using these kids as pawns, to achieve open borders to satisfy George Soros and his ilk. They are bringing in as many illegal aliens as possible because they know they can harvest ballots from them in the next election.

They're also using you as a political pawn to elect them in the name of compassion for the "stranger," when in fact they care little for the "stranger." This current fiasco reveals the Left's lack of compassion and lack of ability to lead.

About the "stranger."

The Left's favorite Scripture to support Biden's or the Left's position on migrants is Leviticus 19:33-34:

"And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in a strange land."

The Left has built an entire movement on this and supporting Scriptures. Some are sincere, some are simply using the Bible for political advantage. Both, however, are wrong.

The Left uses a "Welcome the Stranger" banner to signal their virtue as they advance their open borders agenda. And they always link their activities to biblical compassion.

However. The Bible clearly defines a stranger as "a man of non-Israelite birth, resident in the promised land with the permission of the Israelite authorities"---or the national laws.

So a "stranger" in Israel was an immigrant who was in the country with permission. Our founding immigration laws were based on Judeo-Christian principles.

When a "stranger" is mentioned in the Bible, it always refers to a legal alien, not an illegal one---as in Leviticus 19:33-34.

Borders were very important in the most ancient biblical times. When Moses led the Children of Israel out of Egypt, he asked permission each time he crossed a border and entered a new land. When he was denied permission to enter, he changed course and took a different route.

In the Old Testament, Scripture uses two different words to define "foreigner" and an "alien." A foreigner was a person from another land---like a tourist or businessman, who was in the country temporarily but with permission.

An alien was a person from another land who planned to take up residence, again---with the permission of the host country.

When Joseph wanted to bring his father and brothers to Egypt during the great famine, he had to get permission from Pharoah. Even though he held a high position in government, Joseph himself was not Egyptian. He was a guest---a foreigner and could not legally bring his family into the land.

When Joseph's brothers returned, they appealed to Pharoah again (Gen. 47: 4-6) to allow them to live in the land of Goshen.

Compassion does not require we look the other way when someone breaks the law, nor does it require we deconstruct the United States of America.

What President Biden is doing on the southern border is not biblical nor is it compassionate. 

Yet the Biden administration claims they are doing it in the name of the Lord.

It is nothing more than lawlessness resulting in child abuse.
