As a Democrat, it doesn’t appear that President Joe Biden has any interest in finding notable ways of upholding the law or finding a good way to change them. Of course, this isn’t no shock to us conservatives. Democrats are hardly paragons of integrity. What is Biden up to this time? Apparently, he is trying to find ways of redefining the very words that we use in order to get what he wants.
One example of this would be the word “infrastructure.” Biden has basically just redefined this word to simply mean anything that he wants to spend money on.
To top it all off, Biden has now also order government agencies, including Border Patrol, to stop using the term “alien” to refer to those who are not American or in the country illegally. What? Is Biden just trying to be polite, or does he think that Border Control is simply referring to the type of “alien” people think they saw in Area 51?
Either way, his request didn’t work because Biden simply ended up getting a brual response from his Border Patrol Chief.
According to Breitbart:
Chief Scott states in his memorandum that he would not undermine the effort to implement and enforce the new policy but had reservations about politicizing his agency…
“The U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) is and must remain an apolitical federal law enforcement agency…
Despite every attempt by USBP leadership to ensure that all official messaging remained consistent with law, fact, and evidence, there is no doubt that the reputation of the USBP has suffered because of the many outside voices. Mandating the use of terms which are inconsistent with law has the potential to further erode public trust in our government institutions.”
Chief Scott sounds like a real stand-up guy, and he truly has boxed Biden into a corner this time. He said he is not going to personally agree to Biden’s requested change in terms unless immigration laws are changed. Under federal law, the word “alien” has always been used to denote any foreign national on American soil. It was never designed to be an “offensive” term or one used to degrade or denigrate outsiders. It is merely the term that Congress uses to describe these individuals. Chief Scott has no intention of bowing to Biden’s whims, and as a result many Americans are cheering this border official on. Who knows? Maybe Chief Scott should run for something?
Of course, if the U.S. Congress can pass new immigration legislation, that would be a different story altogether. However, there is nothing but gridlock in the Senate, so it looks like Biden has a long way to go before he can remove “alien” from everyday usage. Biden just might be having a difficult time carrying out his agenda, even from those in his own party.
Just who is in charge here? Is it really Joe Biden? Because it sure doesn’t seem like he knows how government works.
What do you think about this border patrol agent getting in President Biden’s face? Your comments would be appreciated!
