Instead of protecting the U.S.A., Biden has quickly created a dangerous crisis on our nation’s southern border.
Throughout the 2020 presidential campaign, we at the Coalition for American Veterans warned that if Joe Biden were to become president, he would stand opposed to the values of America’s Veterans.
Protecting the American people is a high priority for our heroes who have out their lives on the line for our country. Our nation’s Veterans are for border security, but we warned that Biden and the Democrats would “put illegal aliens ahead of Veterans.”
Border security, national sovereignty, the health and safety of the American people – all these values are second nature to America’s Veterans. But Joe Biden and the Democrats evidently have different priorities.
When Biden selected Alejandro Mayorkas as his nominee to head up the Department of Homeland Security, it became even more clear that the Biden administration would bring back the Obama-Biden policies of weak border security and putting illegal aliens ahead of the American people.
During the Obama-Biden administration, Mayorkas was the Director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, serving as a strong advocate for the Obama-Biden DACA amnesty program.
And in 2015, a Department of Homeland Security investigative report sharply criticized Mayorkas’ oversight of an immigrant visa program due to special treatment given politically-connected businesses – such as a Las Vegas casino backed by then-Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid (“Mayorkas Accused of Political Favoritism – Mayorkas oversaw controversial $500,000 visa program,” ABC News, March 24, 2015).
Yet despite this damaging Department of Homeland Security report on Mayorkas’ record, Joe Biden ironically picked Mayorkas as his choice to head up the Department of Homeland Security!
You can’t make this stuff up!
It’s no wonder that in just the first few weeks of the Biden administration, we’re faced with the most dangerous border crisis since the Obama-Biden administration.
With a pandemic that knows no borders, and with lockdowns that are holding back the U.S. economy, the Biden administration has put the health, safety, and jobs of the American people (including Veterans) at risk.
So our work at the Coalition of American Veterans will be more crucial than ever over the next four years. Can we count on your continued support in 2021?
We can’t allow Joe Biden and Alejandro Mayorkas to destroy the progress of the last four years on birder security and stopping illegal immigration. And we can’t allow the Biden administration to return us to the Obama-Biden policy of disrespect, neglect, and mistreatment of our nation’s veterans.
