With Chinese spy balloons and unidentified objects being shot down over America, the Biden administration is looking the skies. They’re petrified by what they found.
And the Biden White House is on high alert after this aerial threat.
Joe Biden has proven that he has failed to defend this nation from enemies foreign and domestic.
The Chinese military is brazenly flying missions over American airspace, which Joe Biden allowed until Americans started noticing.
Even then, it took him almost a week to shoot down the balloon, and it wasn’t until it completed its mission.
Since the incident, three other objects have been shot down. While we don’t know yet what they were, it’s safe to assume it’s retaliatory balloons from China.
Biden has made it clear that he wants to play his cards close to the chest and not tell Americans what they deserve to know.
But the news about flying objects has distracted from another invasion, the millions of illegal immigrants at the southern border.
And House Speaker Kevin McCarthy is leading a group of Republicans on an aerial tour of the humanitarian disaster area.
McCarthy will travel to the border’s busiest Tucson Sector on Thursday with four freshmen members: Reps. Derrick Van Orden (R-WI), Lori Chavez-DeRemer (R-OR), Jen Kiggans (R-VA), and Juan Ciscomani (R-AZ).
The five lawmakers intend to take an aerial tour of the border with US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) before speaking to the press in Cochise County.
Ciscomani, who represents a portion of the area, recently earned notice for delivering the GOP response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address in Spanish. In an online post, the Arizona Republican referred to the nationwide fentanyl problem while acknowledging the border crossing.
“Look forward to welcoming @SpeakerMcCarthy & my colleagues @RepLCD, @RepJenKiggans, & @RepVanOrden to the southern border as fentanyl continues to tear apart Arizona families,” Ciscomani said. “Thank you Speaker McCarthy for prioritizing border security & fighting to keep our communities safe.”
McCarthy’s visit comes as Republicans increase pressure on the Biden administration to address the unprecedented influx of illegal migrants at the US-Mexico border. CBP figures show that as of January, interactions had nearly reached a mind-boggling five million during Biden’s tenure, a figure that does not include an estimated one million “got-aways,” or those who entered the country unnoticed.
While the administration was fast to publish data from last month, which were much lower than in December, data from January 2023 were approximately double those of January 2021.
The US Border Patrol union, which represents roughly 90% of Border Patrol agents, slammed those who attempted to spin the January numbers as a win.
Suggesting the border crisis is improving is a “fairy tale sold by propagandists,” the union wrote. “It’s getting WORSE.”
In addition to McCarthy’s visit, Republicans on other House committees, including Homeland Security, Judiciary, and Oversight, have begun immigration-related probes.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) recently informed Breitbart News that he intends to create significant immigration legislation through his committee following a series of investigative hearings, however, he will be up against Biden and Senate Democrats in terms of any legislation becoming law.
The chairman, like McCarthy, plans to travel to the Arizona border next week to host a field hearing for his committee as he continues to shed light on the effects of rising migration on Americans across the country.
Other members, most notably Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) and Pat Fallon (R-TX), are calling on the House to impeach Biden’s border director, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
McCarthy took a direct attack at Mayorkas during his last trip to the border in November 2022, demanding he resigns or faces a full investigation that could lead to impeachment proceedings.
McCarthy said at the time, “If Secretary Mayorkas does not resign, House Republicans will investigate every order, every action, and every failure will determine whether we can begin [an] impeachment inquiry.”
Mayorkas, for one, is unconcerned by Republicans’ increased scrutiny.
In response to McCarthy’s resignation calls, Mayorkas stated on ABC’s This Week in early January that he has no plans to leave his position.
He said, “I’ve got a lot of work to do. I’m proud to do it, alongside 250,000 incredibly dedicated and talented individuals in the Department of Homeland Security, and I’m going to continue to do my work.”
