On Tuesday, June 18, the Biden administration unveiled a new immigration program providing a pathway to citizenship for approximately half a million immigrants who are married to American citizens but lack legal status in the United States. It is one of President Joe Biden’s most comprehensive immigration policies, and one that immigration advocates have been heavily lobbying for. Some Republican legislators, however, believe this executive action will incentivize even more illegal immigration.

Watch the video above as Straight Arrow News contributor Star Parker defends Republican concerns and argues that Biden’s border policies are all for show.

The following is an excerpt from the above video:

He’s obviously taken this action to appease liberals in his political base in the months leading up until the presidential election. Liberals have expressed anger at Biden for supposedly enforcing stricter measures at the U.S.-Mexico border. In reality, Biden is pretending to take meaningful action, but his new border policy has such a high threshold for triggering enforcement measures and is so full of loopholes that it is merely [sic] a smokescreen to gaslight the broader American electorate.

Many Americans are rightly concerned that Biden’s reckless immigration policy threatens our national security, our public safety and the economic well-being of communities across America.

President Biden is engaging in a pattern of ignoring our democratic process even as he continues to make allegations about threats to democracy. He and his allies are relentlessly attacking the Supreme Court and seeking to undermine public confidence in our judicial branch of government when they make decisions that conflict with the progressive agenda.


Interested in opposing perspectives? Have a look at how our other contributors view this issue from across the political spectrum:

Jordan Reid: Biden’s achievements undermined by growing perception gaps.

Ruben Navarrette: Democrats too soft on Biden’s poor treatment of immigrants.

Larry Lindsey: Immigration will lower wages and cause more income inequality.

President Biden is once again use an executive action to bypass Congress on immigration policy there by incentivizing more people to enter our country illegally. He’s obviously taken this action to appease liberals in his political base in the months leading up until the presidential election, liberals have expressed anger at Biden for supposedly enforcing stricter measures at the US Mexico border.

Even as he continues to make allegations about threats to democracy. He and his allies are relentlessly attacking the Supreme Court and seeking to undermine public confidence in our judicial branch of government when they make decisions that conflict with the progressive agenda. In contrast to Biden’s irresponsible actions, that House of Representatives under the leadership of Mike Johnson, Republican from the great state of Louisiana, they have passed the National Defense Authorization Act, critical legislation that authorizes funding and sets policies for the Department of Defense and other national security programs. The legislation advanced by these house conservatives include some key wins for servicemen and their families. And I’m telling you, it’s a really good thing, because it’s not only for the service members and their families, it’s for all American people. More broadly, the House passed an amendment also to preserve a long standing statutory prohibition on taxpayer funding for abortion at the Department of Defense. Biden and Senate Democrats are expected to oppose this measure yet once again, they want unfettered abortion ninth month, ninth hour, and they’re going to press for its removal from the defense bill. The national defense bill includes a 19.5% pay raise for our junior enlisted service members, and the measure to block liberal indoctrination that threatens to undermine cohesiveness and morale amongst our service members. But then, Biden and his Democrats will stop the whole bill just to preserve abortion. This is one area we must fight house conservatives deserve support for policies that protect the sanctity of life, combat left wing indoctrination and uplift the quality of life for our service members and their families. President Biden should set aside all his politics and do what’s best for our military and for the American people. That’s how democracy is really supposed to work. And that’s the kind of representation the American people deserve.
