US Southern Border

Top Dem Outraged Over Biden Border Plans

A senior Senate Democrat called President Joe Biden’s plans for the southern border “unacceptable” in a blistering statement Tuesday afternoon.

As Title 42 is set to expire, a Trump-era policy put in place which allows the US to deny asylum and immigration claims at the border, the Biden administration is seeking ways to deal with the expected influx of encounters at the southern border.

Tuesday, the Pentagon confirmed it would send 1,500 active-duty troops to the border after sources spoke to CNN about the plan.

“For 90 days, these 1,500 military personnel will fill critical capability gaps, such as ground-based detection and monitoring, data entry, and warehouse support, until CBP can address these needs through contracted support,” said Pentagon spokesman Brigadier General Pat Ryder.

The new batch of troops will join the 2,500 who have been there since October of last year.

Democrats Balk

Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) issued a statement in response blasting the decision.

“There is already a humanitarian crisis in the Western Hemisphere, and deploying military personnel only signals that migrants are a threat that require our nation’s troops to contain,” he said. “Nothing could be further from the truth.”

“The administration has had over two years to plan for the eventual end of this Trump-era policy in a way that does not compromise our values as a country,” Menendez went on.

“I have offered them a strategic and comprehensive plan, which they have largely ignored. Trying to score political points or intimidate migrants by sending the military to the border caters to the Republican Party’s xenophobic attacks on our asylum system.”

While the Pentagon stated the troops will not be in law enforcement roles, Biden signed an executive order last week authorizing the White House to call up active-duty forces to address drug trafficking at the border.

In 2018, former President Donald Trump deployed around 5,000 troops to the border over the objection of Democrats, who accused Trump of misusing the military to rile up his voters.


  1. It looks like New Jersey should get ready for the next busloads of illega! immigrants.

  2. send them all to N. Jersey, N. York, Cal. and and all the high tax liberal states. So they will feel that the American dream is no more!!!!

  3. Why isn’t the military being authorized to shoot any invaders who cross our borders? That’s all the illegal aliens are, invaders. Any other country faced with mass illegal migration of foreign citizens would protect their borders while our politicians want to allow criminals (not only because they will commit various crimes against our citizens) simply because they are here illegally but they want to give them benefits reserved for U. S. citizens. And the bleeding heart liberals and various church groups are fine with that, until those same illegal aliens are sent to their states. I agree with Kenneth E Hadler who said New Jersey should get the next busload of illegals. Followed by New Jersey, New York, Washington, D. C., Illinois and California. Should send a few to Michigan as well. I’m sure their liberal governor would welcome them with open arms – until they started camping out in front of the governor’s mansion, that is.

    • The trouble is, the people carrying the bags of fentanyl are preceded by women and children. Who is going to mow them down with machine guns?

      Maybe the better solution to Putin’s Invasion of Ukraine is to announce that all the Russian soldiers who cross the lines and surrender will be shipped to NJ and put on welfare and medicaid?

  4. Biden won’t acknowledge the problem unless they are send to the city and town where his home and beach house are. Then he will have to deal with the problem because it will be in his backyard.

  5. We are SOOOO messed up in our nation. Since we decided to NO LONGER be “restricted” by GOD”S RULES , now we are RUDDERLESS!! ANY BODY can come up with any cockamami
    idea and call it a “FACT”. We ARE of all mankind most to be pitied!!!
