社評 1005 非法移民成了政治皮球
德州州長艾伯特週一再送五十名越境之非法移民到副總統賀錦麗的華府官邸，截至目前為止 ，已經有一萬二千名非法移民從德州邊境送到民主黨執政的大城市， 其中包括芝加哥 、紐約及華盛頓。
艾伯特州長在一場和民主黨人辯論會上表示，因為拜登總統繼續讓非法移民進入德州 ，我們將繼續把他們送走 ，他並指責副總統賀錦麗上週到休斯敦訪問， 都沒有到邊境視察 ，副總統事後表示 ，拜登政府將呼籲國會共同努力來解決目前面臨的移民問題。
保守估計， 最後二年多來 己経有二百一十萬非法移民進入美國尋求庇護， 這股浪潮也令人十分憂慮。
移民問題是美國長期面對之問題， 老實說 ，我們是一個移民國家， 如果我們沒有移民， 將是非常嚴重之危機， 但是如何讓合法而優秀之移民進入美國， 也是政府重大之考驗。
Migrants Become Political Pawns
Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent another 50 migrants to DC in front of Vice President Harris’s residence on Monday. Up until now, more than 8,200 migrants have been bused to the nation’s capital and about 3,000 more have been dropped off in New York.
Abbott said, “We will have to continue to move migrants because Joe Biden continues to allow more illegal immigrants to come into the State of Texas. Our supposed border czar Vice President Harris has yet to even visit the border to see firsthand the impact of the open border policies she has helped implement, even going so far as to claim the border is secure.”
Vice President Harris later said she and President Biden have been calling on Congress to do more to fix the nation’s immigration issues.
Harris said, “The border is secure, but we also have a broken immigration system. In particular, over the last four years, before we came in, and it needs to be fixed.”
Democratic governor challenger O’Rourke claimed that when he becomes head of the State of Texas, he will push to fix the nation’s immigration problem by creating a safe legal path for people who want to work, join family or seek asylum in Texas. He said Abbott is treating human beings as political pawns.
We are a nation of immigrants, but we need to have a better policy to accept more immigrants as a national issue.
In the upcoming midterm election, immigration will become a very heated topic. All of the politicians will need to agree to a debate.
