Coservative comedian Rob Schneider took to X (formerly Twitter) to tear into President Joe Biden’s border policy, particularly the vast number of illegal immigrants who are flowing across the border on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis under his watch, arguing that the mass immigration is being allowed in order to destroy America.
In the post, Schneider, one of the very few conservative voices in Hollywood, drew attention to a video showing mass migration across the Mexico-America border, with the video showing a massive number of migrants on the US side of the border waiting for CBP to detain them, presumably so they can make their asylum claim and be released into the interior of the country.
Schneider, responding to it, said, “There is no way any rational American can look at this illegal migration of people from North Africa just walking into our country from Mexico and not think the Biden Administration is blatantly trying to destroy our Nation…”
The video was originally posted by Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, who said, “NEW: Good morning from Lukeville, AZ, where there was another mass illegal crossing through a cut in the border wall early this morning. Hundreds of adults from around the world now waiting for Border Patrol to apprehend them. People here from India, Guinea, Liberia, & many more.” Watch the video here:
Fox 10 Phoenix, reporting on the border situation, noted that there were a record number of migrant crossings at the border in the fiscal year of 2023, with 2.4 million caught coming across the border and innumerable more likely making it across without being caught. September was the highest month ever, while this October was the highest October on record, and November and December remained high despite typically being times of year when migration slows down.
That outlet added that on Monday alone there were over 12,600 migrant encounters, including 1.600 migrants at our ports of entry and over 11,000 illegal immigrants being apprehended elsewhere along the American border with Mexico.
Mr. Melugin also commented on the new plan from Texas to fly migrants to sanctuary cities like Chicago. Posting about it on X, he said, “Sources in TX Governor Greg Abbott’s office tell me TX is now *flying* migrants to sanctuary cities, with the first flight of 120 migrants landing at Chicago’s O’Hare airport last night after taking off from El Paso, TX. They say all migrants signed voluntary waivers as they do with buses, more flights are being planned, and that any sanctuary city is “fair game”, as TX continues to deal with a massive influx of illegal crossings this week. Video of first flight to Chicago below 👇🏻”
Watch the video, released by Abbott’s office, here:
Gov. Abbott, for his part, said, “Sanctuary city Chicago started obstructing and targeting our busing mission. Texas will now expand our operation to include flights to Chicago. Until Biden steps up to secure the border, we will continue to provide overwhelmed Texas border towns with much-needed relief.”
