Joe Biden used his State of the Union address to declare that he had regained control of the US border, claiming, “Since we started our new border strategy last month, illicit migration from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela has decreased by 97 percent.”
Biden’s exclusive focus on four nations in a single month obscures his longer record of fostering vast illegal migration through a range of quasi-legal loopholes and initiatives.
The reported reduction for the four nations ignores the numerous other national populations that Biden is giving easy access into the U.S., where they are allowed “parole,” or unrestricted access to U.S. work, while maintaining years-long asylum claims.
The assertion also ignores Biden’s development of a clandestine “parole pathway” that imports at least 50,000 economic migrants each month into positions required by Americans whose incomes and opportunities have been declining for many years. Thirty thousand people from the four nations are part of that pipeline.
Without any of the illegals, that vast pipeline alone may increase the delivery of job-seeking migrants into the U.S. by at least 60% over the roughly one million authorized by Congress in 1990.
Overall, Biden’s policies add about one migrant for every American who reaches 18 each year, or nearly three times the amount established by Congress’s regulations in 1990.
That Biden-engineered labor supply inflation will benefit investors and Wall Street by lowering market salaries for Americans and increasing the market price of homes required by young Americans and American families.
On February 5, the Los Angeles Times recounted how one Cuban was hurried through the new parole route into the US labor market:
“HAVANIA – Marcos Marzo, 25, went from riding his little electric motorcycle through the modest buildings of Havana’s Vedado area to navigating the mega-highways of Florida, fascinated by the towering high-rises and massive supermarkets, in less than a week.”
“On Jan. 21, a close cousin informed Marzo that he had filed online to sponsor the engineer’s journey to Florida, as required under the Biden administration’s new parole program for migrants from Cuba. The sponsorship was verified the next day, and authorized the day after that.”
“Marzo boarded a jet to Hialeah, Fla., last Friday, clutching his printed authorization and a little blue bag, shocked by the speed of it all.”
Meanwhile, 20 GOP state officials have filed a lawsuit alleging that Biden’s parole pipeline is unlawful.
The fact of migration-induced wage cutbacks on Americans is widely acknowledged by investors and much despised by voters. According to a YouGov.com survey conducted in July 2022, corporations “should boost pay and work harder to attract Americans even if it causes the pricing of their products to rise” by a margin of 50 percent to 22 percent.
