Biden at last delivers on his promise of unity.

When Joe Biden delivered his inaugural address, the theme was “unity.” He used the word or a version of it multiple times in the 2,300-word speech. An example is this passage:

Paul GleiserBiden at last delivers on his promise of unity.

Today, on this January day, my whole soul is in this. Bringing America together. Uniting our people. And uniting our nation. And I ask every American to join me in this cause.”

The president’s critics who say that he has failed in that cause may be wrong. No, really.

Evidence to support that assertion comes from, of all places, New York – one of the bluest states in the country.

It seems that New Yorkers are united in blaming Joe Biden for the tidal wave of illegal immigration that is wreaking havoc on New York City. According to a Siena College poll, a very large majority of New Yorkers are united in their disapproval of Biden’s handling of the immigration crisis. Said pollster Steven Greenberg:

Seldom do we see an issue where at least 79% of Democrats, Republicans, independents, men, women, upstaters, downstaters, Blacks, Whites, Latinos, Catholics, Jews and Protestants all agree — that the migrant influx is a serious problem…”

There can be no doubt that Joe Biden’s immigration policy is an unfolding catastrophe. Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana made that clear this week in a way that only he can during a Senate hearing in which he was questioning Cardell Morant, a senior official with the Department of Homeland Security.

SEN. KENNEDY: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Mr. Morant, since President Biden has been president, how many non-American citizens have come into our country illegally or on the basis of a claim of asylum?

MORANT: Thank you, Senator. HSI is an investigative agency, it’s uh…

SEN. KENNEDY: (interrupting) Do you know the number?

MORANT: No, Senator.

Kennedy then asked the question of the other Homeland Security personnel at the hearing.

SEN. KENNEDY: Does anybody know the number? (long pause) None of you know the number.

Kennedy proceeded to provide the answer.

SEN. KENNEDY: Try eight million.

He then went on to offer some clarity in his signature fashion.

SEN. KENNEDY: OK, eight million is four Nebraskas. Right? Four new states.

It went on to get worse.

SEN. KENNEDY: Now of that eight million, how many were children, Mr. Morant?

MORANT: I don’t have that number…

SEN. KENNEDY: You don’t know. Does anybody know? (long pause) None of you know. Isn’t that special?

Well, yes, it is special. It will be recognized by historians as one of the greatest wounds that any nation has ever inflicted upon itself.

Joe Biden’s immigration policy is hastening the destruction of major U.S. cities that were already reeling from the ravages of COVID and the riots of the summer of 2020. New Yorkers have noticed.

There’s a lesson here. The lesson is that when normal people are sufficiently confronted with the real-world consequences of ill-considered, sanctimonious, virtue-signaling liberalism, the differences between liberals and conservatives start to disappear.

And Biden at last gets his unity.

    Re: Promise of Unity

    At times I feel overwhelmed (which to work first) the problems in Washington, or the problems in Austin???

    It is interesting to see that voters in blue cities and states are now seeing the results of their votes. Maybe wrong result for them. Wrong concept to unite behind? Just sad.

    The election of Mike Johnson as House Speaker is a bright spot in the usual dreary news day. He is already being attacked and he needs support and to close the ranks behind him. He is a positive start and I support him.

    We must clean up our own mess in Austin and that starts with Dade. Those (read any) elected people in Austin have recently dumped 14 propositions on us that for the most part are new taxes. When you read them and see the word “funds” you should insert taxpayers!

    Texas voters need to unite to start the push back right now and Nov. 7 is a good day to send that message.

    I just don’t know the words I need to express my thoughts about our government failing to enforce our Immagration laws and secure our borders.

    Joe Biden’s immigration policy is the Democratic Party’s immigration policy and it is working just as intended. The Democrat agenda is so bad and bizarre, that they understand their chances of winning in free and fair elections is growing slimmer by the day. In the previous presidential election, the Democrat machine in big cities managed to steal the election, but they are rightly concerned that in the current environment election fraud won’t be enough to save their candidates. Thus, their goal is to import as many illegals as possible and turn them into Democrat voters (legally or otherwise), with absolutely no regard for the damage done to our nation.

    TXIT is sounding better and better everyday. No One in the Federal Government is going to stand up for Texas except Texans; well maybe Louisiana or the South. Hummm, that sounds very controversial. But, lets face the facts of the situation Nation wide. Left coast/North Right coast are radicals not for the Constitution of the USA or Bill of Rights. America is a total mess and at a pivotal point as in the Civil War. Two Tier Justice, invasion at the both borders of over 100 different countries; THAT folks is an invasion and chaos. Democratic Party, Justice Department, Defense Department, IRS, Environmental Department, Czars, FEMA, OMG, now many other Federal Agencies are anti-America? My ancestors fought and bleed for Texas. I am for Texas! Period.

    Unity is a word that could have many uses and meanings to different people. To me, there has been no UNITY for the PEOPLE. Just for the democrat party. Do those people ever sleep? Seems they work 24/7 to insure they win at any cost being CONSTITUTIONAL or not! Think UNITY is put in the meaning as compromise is for me…both are dirty words. Sometimes I wonder why I have an “R” by my name because it seems looking back at the decades, republicans have a market on COMPROMISE and UNITY of which the donkeys seem to latch onto and used for their benefit. NOT the benefit of THE PEOPLE!!! It seems that the donkeys only see “unity” as a beneficiary word FOR the democrat party…not as a whole. Just MHO.
