Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy didn’t pull any punches when talking about Americans putting their head in the hot Texas desert sand about illegal immigration. The longtime conservative with the very famous name appeared on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Monday, saying that the continued crisis at the border between the United States and Mexico is something that everyone needs to put at the top of their priority list.
Along with his frustration over the border, Kennedy had some choice words for Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas who claims the border is closed.
According to The Daily Wire, Kennedy said during his interview that anyone who believes that the border is really closed also believes in the “Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and that Jimmy Hoffa died of natural causes.” The Louisiana Republican went on to call the United States “one giant sanctuary city” thanks to President Joe Biden’s administration’s take on punishments for illegal immigrants.
“The Department of Homeland Security has announced that the border is closed, but they lie like they breathe,” Kennedy emphasized. “I mean, I don’t mean to be ugly, but they lie like they breathe. When I heard the secretary say the border is closed, my mind went back to that image of President Clinton looking the American people in the eye and saying, ‘I did not have sex with that woman.’ We know how that turned out. I’ve been to the border. If you believe the border is closed, you believe in the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and that Jimmy Hoffa died of natural causes.”
It’s not just Kennedy that is concerned about what’s happening between the United States and Mexico. Any American with even the most basic critical thinking, logical reasoning or basic knowledge of geopolitics could surmise that the state of our neighbors to the south (and then south again) puts those countries in the kind of position that their citizens could see themselves better off in the US.
Sure there are gangs running rampant, the cartels are paying off government officials and if you don’t join a gang by a certain age you’ll be killed by the same gang so you don’t pledge to their rival while living under their noses. But that’s for sure a better living situation than HUD housing, SNAP benefits, and student loan forgiveness.
Those potential problems are the best-case scenario though. If we back on up to those critical thinking and logical reasoning skills, it would again be easy to see how a lack of cracking down on our border puts Mexico in the kind of position to be used as a gateway by anyone and everyone who wants to get into the United States but can’t through traditional means. Such was evidenced by the abandoned Muslim “holy” texts that have littered the common border crossing points, leaving Americans to ask, what might a Muslim who can’t enter the United States legally want to do once they get here?
“We’ll have 2 million people come into the United States this year illegally, thanks to the Biden administration,” Kennedy continued in his diatribe against the border crisis. “They have no idea who they are, except they’re coming from all over the world. The Biden administration has almost completely halted any kind of deportation of people already here illegally. America has become one giant sanctuary city, and the shame of all of this is is that in addition to violating the law and being dangerous, it undermines legal immigration.”
So in other words, anyone who feels that immigration is well in hand, get in touch with Sen. Kennedy. I think he’s got some oceanfront property right along the border in Arizona he’d like to sell you.
