At an event at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy in Texas, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Americans must give foreigners the opportunity to migrate into their U.S. homeland.
As Breitbart News noted,
Blinken did not urge his government peers to enforce the immigration laws that protect Americans from employers who hire illegal immigrants that undercut Americans’ bargaining power in the labor market. He also did not mention the many polls showing the growing public opposition to Biden’s mass illegal migration.
Instead, he described migration as a natural and inevitable process — an opportunity for government officials and experts to better manage, exploit, channel, and redirect. “We are going to make migration safe, humane, and orderly, which we have to do,” said the veteran Democrat appointee.
“What the executive branch has to do is enforce the laws on the books as written,” responded Jon Feere, who held a senior job in the Department of Homeland Security under President Trump. Feere added:
That’s what the executive branch has to do. That’s why the executive branch exists in our Constitution — and if they’re not going to do that, they do delegitimize their own existence. [Blinken’s attitude] is a post-American mindset. It’s a post-democracy mindset in many ways. Why are we putting laws on the books of the people running the executive branch can just ignore them?
That’s so destructive to our society. It’s so destructive to our way of life and our constitutional order, and maybe that’s their goal.
Blinken’s ideological support for migration suggests he may support the transfer of Gaza’s population away from Israel’s border. In prior speeches, he has repeatedly described Americans’ home as a “Nation of Immigrants.”
At the Texas event, Blinken eagerly talked up the White House’s ambitious plans to unilaterally rewrite the nation’s immigration rules, regardless of existing laws or congressional votes.
