Ha! 1 million? America will be a third world country soon then. Will start to look like France, Germany, Spain, Britain, etc. Protect your women and children. A lot more sex trafficking and rape will be happening soon. These aren’t good people. And 95% will be males, of war age... just like in Europe.

WASHINGTON, DC – A former Department of Homeland Security official, and now a senior lecturer for Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, recently wrote a piece for The Atlantic suggesting that the United States could see as many as 1 million migrants trying to make their way through the border in 2021.

How do you dismantle cruel border policies without that leading to a belief that our borders are open? I wrote about concerns of a mass migration building at the border and how stemming that flow is the most humane option available, for now. @TheAtlantic https://t.co/EUonfntuEt

In an article titled “The Border Mess That Trump Left Behind”, Juliette Kayyem extrapolated the January, 2021 CBP data to come to the conclusion that the southern border could see as mush as – or even more – than a million immigrants trying to enter the country:

“Customs and Border Protection reported nearly 78,000 “encounters” in January at the southwest border—that is, 78,000 apprehensions or deportations of would-be immigrants.”

That’s nearly double the figure for the same month last year and the highest for January in a decade. If the current pattern holds, the U.S. is on track for more than 1 million encounters in 2021.”

The recurring theme present within Kayyem’s article, outside of admonishing President Trump’s effort with the southern border during his time in office, is that President Biden may encounter some difficulties while balancing Democratic talking points during the 2020 election season and the stances of most Americans:

“Many Democratic candidates during the 2020 presidential-primary season supported decriminalization of unlawful border crossings, and activists and officials on the party’s progressive flank support the outright abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

“Both positions, however, are unpopular among an American public that generally supports immigration.”

“Perhaps not coincidentally, the candidate who won the Democratic nomination and the presidency took more moderate stances.

Now Biden has the tricky problem of squaring his own sense of empathy and the expectations of his party’s base with the duty to protect America’s borders under existing laws.”

While acknowledging all of the aforementioned, Kayyem doesn’t really launch into the reasons as to why many Americans are apprehensive about wantonly opening up the borders, decriminalizing illegal crossings, and abolishing ICE.

Instead, she latches onto the idea that the problem is that America’s immigration policies are just old fashioned and too restrictive, and that the country needs more resources allocated to hear out immigration cases:

“The nation’s existing laws are outmoded and overly restrictive, the United States hasn’t devoted the resources necessary to review individual cases, and the Biden administration has little control over when migrants will arrive at the border and seek entry.”

Kayyem carries on this notion that President Biden needs to “buy time” in order to maintain the border during the pandemic and devise a strategy to also process asylum claims simultaneously.

Keep in mind though, Kayyem doesn’t offer any possible solutions to the issue, she merely says that President Biden needs to “handle those who do arrive at the border.”

We'll get 1 million-plus Biden migrants this year, warns ex-Obama/DHS official now at Harvard.
The warning includes a weak criticism of the ethnic lobbies & open-borders progressives who are undermining a giveaway to Ivy League inside the amnesty bill.https://t.co/RqZBEGcxKO

Neil Munro from Breitbart News has a theory as to why Kayyem seems so vested in President Biden striking that balance. From what Munro takes from Kayyem’s position, he believes she’s concerned that botching the situation at the border could affect the moving forward of President Biden’s amnesty efforts:

“[Kayyem ‘s] concern seems to be that the flood of migrants will prompt American voters to step in and reassert control of the border which has now been delegated to Biden’s team of ethnic advocacy groups, open-borders progressives, and corporate allies.”

“That intervention would be bad for Harvard because it would likely derail Biden’s amnesty bill — a bill includes a massive giveaway to the elite university sector.”

“The Biden bill, if passed, would effectively allow Harvard and other universities to recruit fee-paying foreign students by offering an unlimited number of work permits — complete with a 15-year “path to citizenship.”

Seeing that Kayyem happens to be a lecturer at Harvard, it’s not that far of a stretch to deduce that she’d adopt positions that could behoove her employer and, therefore, behoove her.

But whether that is the case or not is pure speculation.
