Instead of upholding the law or finding legal ways of changing them, Joe Biden is trying to get what he wants by redefining the very words we use.
For example, Biden has redefined “infrastructure” to basically mean anything he wants to spend money on.
He also ordered government agencies, including Border Patrol, to stop using the word “alien” to refer to non-Americans. I guess he thinks that’s being too mean (or he’s getting confused with the outer space kind of alien)?
But he just got a brutal response from his Border Patrol chief.
Chief Scott states in his memorandum that he would not undermine the effort to implement and enforce the new policy but had reservations about politicizing his agency…
“The U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) is and must remain an apolitical federal law enforcement agency…
Despite every attempt by USBP leadership to ensure that all official messaging remained consistent with law, fact, and evidence, there is no doubt that the reputation of the USBP has suffered because of the many outside voices. Mandating the use of terms which are inconsistent with law has the potential to further erode public trust in our government institutions.”
The chief of Border Patrol has announced he will not personally agree to Biden’s changing of terms unless the laws are changed.
Under federal law, the word “alien” is used to describe any foreign national on U.S. soil. It has not been an “offensive” term or one used to denigrate or malign outsiders.
It’s just the term decided by our Congress for these people.
Apparently, Biden wants to circumvent the law through his executive orders, demanding Border Patrol ignore existing legislation.
But Chief Scott has no intention of bowing to Biden’s whims, and many Americans are cheering for him.
Sure, if Congress can manage to pass new immigration legislation, that’s a different story. But considering the gridlock in the Senate, Biden’s a long way from removing “alien” from usage.
Sounds like Biden is having a hard time getting his agenda carried out—even by people within his own administration.
Is this guy really in charge? Does he even know how government is supposed to work?
- Biden demanded Border Patrol to stop using the word “alien.”
- The border chief announced he will follow the law instead, which requires that word.
- Biden has tried to redefine terms before to push his agenda through.
