The numbers tell the story, and they are pretty grim. For the month of September, roughly 200,000 illegal immigrants crossed the U.S. southern border and were processed. For fiscal year 2023, which ended Saturday, 2.2 million immigrants entered the country. The only other year in American history in which the number of crossings has surpassed 2 million was in fiscal year 2022. While there is much speculation about the reasons behind the mass migration of illegal immigrants, in a recent interview with left-wing website ProPublica, President Joe Biden may have let the cat out of the bag on the true reason for the staggering number of illegal immigrants entering the country. 


During the interview, Biden acknowledged the fact that Democrats have been losing ground with blue-collar white men who are uneasy about the economy and cultural and demographic changes in the country. But then, the president seemed to try to downplay concerns about the economy and said of those white blue-collar male voters that his party needs to make sure they are “treating them with respect.” He then added: 

The fact is, we’re going to be very shortly a minority-white-European country. Sometimes my colleagues don’t speak enough to make it clear that that is not going to change how we operate.

Wait, what? It is no secret that Democrat support among not just those blue-collar white male voters but also among minorities—particularly black and Hispanic Americans—is shaky. In 2020, Donald Trump got 12 percent of the black vote, four points higher than in 2016. A Reuters/Ipsos poll from July showed that 18 percent of black voters would back Trump. They also notice that the promises coming from Democrats every four years never seem to be fulfilled. Things are not much brighter for Democrats with Hispanic voters. During the 2018 midterm elections, 72 percent of Hispanic votes went with Democrats and 25 percent backed GOP candidates. In 2022, 60 percent backed Democrats, and 39 percent voted for Republicans. The Democrat party seems to have banked on the fact that Hispanics will be one-issue voters and that the issue will be immigration. That is not the case. Maria Montero is one of several Hispanic 2024 GOP House candidates. She says:


I may not be what your typical Republican looks like. But so much of … our community reflects Republican values. So when I’m going door to door and speaking with folks, they talk about the economy, which isn’t like a race issue, it isn’t a party issue. It’s just common sense.

So, what is Joe Biden talking about? Democrats have long made fun of Republicans’ so-called “replacement theory.” The thought is that through intentional mass immigration, Democrats can replace their shrinking voting base among minority voters with a whole new voting base that will be beholden to them in perpetuity and thus continue to vote for them. But whether Joe Biden blowing the lid off the disaster at the border was intentional or not, it is a big gamble for Democrats, and could very well come back to bite them in 2024. A Real Clear Politics poll shows that just 33.6 percent of Americans think Biden is doing a good job on immigration. 

But Joe may not be the first to speak out loud about the dirty little border secret. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has said publicly on several occasions that he is intentionally building a system that would supply cheap labor to some American employers and investors, and “equity” to poor immigrants. Mayorkas has also made statements that the “nation of immigrants” idea of the United States is more important than any immigration laws Congress might pass.  


Democrats are also not without true believers in Congress who are children of those who came here illegally. During a recent hearing, Rep. Delia Ramirez (D-IL) said dramatically, “One day without [illegal] immigrants, you don’t eat.” Rep. Robert Garcia (D-CA) mistakenly declared, “We’re not only a nation of immigrants. … [The immigrant population] embodies the spirit of this country.” Legal immigrants Congressman. Legal. 

It would appear that Democrats are fairly close, if not all the way there, to talking about the true reasons why Joe Biden and his administration have no problem with an invasion of the United States.
