Who is really responsible for the border asylum crisis / challenge??
The Chicago Tribune Columnist opinion titled: Biden called it a border surge, now he owns it, stated the following Biden campaign statement?
“I would in fact make sure that there is, that we immediately surge to the border — all those people are seeking asylum. They deserve to be heard,” Biden said. “That’s who we are. We’re a nation that says, ‘If you want to flee and you’re fleeing oppression, you should come.’”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb, an idiom and to tell it like it is, the truth of who owns the border crisis of the billions of people in the world who desire asylum from the oppression “woes” in their nation’s leadership.
Woe to the land whose king was a servant and whose princes feast in the morning. (Proverb 10:16)
Idiom – The grass always looks greener on the other side.
Meaning – Other people’s circumstances or belongings always seem more desirable than one’s own.
What’s My Point?
The columnist article only blames Biden, but the truth is the Democrat Party in 1980 passed legislation signed by President Carter to grant asylum to refuges up to 50,000 a year.
That does not include the average one million per year legal immigrants who apply and are granted citizenship every year.
The above idiom meaning that the grass is greener is a true thought most people especially in their youth experience which original meaning was to caution people that that may not be “like it really is.”
However, it really is to anyone who is granted asylum in the USA because the USA grants subsidies to help them pay expenses, given cash, housing, and free medical care for a time period.
My point is, no one seems to know how many people this year alone who are crossing the southern only border have been granted asylum.
Or in other words, Congress is ignoring the laws they passed in 1980 to enforce the 50,000 or adjusting the number lower because of high unemployment, or the pandemic presently in USA.
In My Opinion,
The news media needs to demand Congress and the President abide by the 1980 laws which is their responsibility.
The writer of the Chicago Triune article also commented that immigrants and asylum seekers affect mainly Black voters job opportunities.
Or in other words, why the Black Caucus members in Congress and the predominately Black voters vote for the Democrat Party?

Is President Joe Biden only, or the entire Democrat Congress really to blame for the current border “crises”: or “challenge?”
Does anyone in Congress know how many people being caught and released have entered the USA in 2021 or is Biden invitation open to billions of people in the world who have woes or suffer oppression from the princely leaders” also invited?”
Do all legislators in Congress take oaths of office to obey the Constitution and the laws have some “princely” Rights to ignore their oaths?.
