Former President Obama said the idea of having open borders is “unsustainable” and asked for unspecified reforms of America’s immigration system.
During an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America, Obama explained that while immigration is a “hard issue” to handle because Americans tend to want to “help other people,” fixing the system is “long overdue.”
Obama’s remarks come after over 15,000 Haitians camped underneath the international bridge in Texas, after forcing their way past the Rio Grande to try to get asylum in America.
“As big-hearted as he is, nobody understands this better than Biden,” Obama said.
“The question is: Are we going to get serious about this problem in a systemic way, as opposed to these one-offs where we are constantly responding to emergencies? And I believe that is something every American should want to put an end to,” Obama said, referencing the viral images and videos which show mounted Border Patrol agents chasing down Haitians trying to cross the border.
“It is heartbreaking, and it is, I believe, one of the situations in which the system is dysfunctional, you will get episodes in which what is happening is something no one wants.”
Obama and many very smart Democrats are starting to notice that mass immigration, done too quickly, only harms their long-term agenda of demographically replacing white people. The slowing down of immigration or shifting illegal immigration to legal “migration” is just one play they could be internally debating to ensure their agenda works as intended.
I am reminded of the “frog in the pot” analogy: Put a frog in water and turn the heat up too quickly, it knows what is happening and jumps out. Put a frog in cold water and slowly turn the heat up, the frog dies.
Speaking of which, this comes after the disaster in Del Rio, Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas has admitted that over 12,000 Haitians who were living in the camp were released into the United States after previously saying that the camp under the bridge was cleared out.
The United States Customs and Border Protection had almost 209,000 encounters in the month of August, marking the second month in a row of encounters with migrants higher than 200,000, Fox News reported.
