The Border is Secure for Half

The Domesticated dogs of the illegal aliens are the only ones Kept From entering the Country

When the Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, was reported as saying the southern border of the United States was secure, his statement was only half true. Over 6.3 million and counting are the number of individuals who have illegally entered the country since Biden took office.  Estimates of many more illegals will enter the United States worldwide without proper documentation.

The unprecedented and unregulated migration across the southern border has many nefarious consequences. Black market fentanyl is flooding the country and is accelerated by the porous and chaotic border ill-patrolled by law enforcement personnel. The rise in human trafficking, which includes forced labor, sex trafficking, and organ trafficking, has similarly shown meteoric increases.  The most susceptible to human trafficking are the unaccompanied women and children, aka UACs. Since Biden took office, there has been an increase in UACs by more than 80% as compared to the Trump administration numbers. 

Even blue state elected officials are pushing back on the policy because the influx of migrants to their states and cities is overwhelming their current social safety nets.  The left-winged mayor of New York City, Eric Adams, has declared a state of emergency due to the vast number of migrants settling in his city. In Chicago, before Lori Lightfoot was unceremoniously voted out of office, she declared a state of emergency because of the migrant problem.  Washington, D.C., and many more places nationwide have also followed suit.

The narrative of a secure border backed by Mayorkas is different from the amount of fallout the country has seen since Biden and his open border policy became the policy of the land. Half credit is due to Mayorkas for securing the border, not from illegal aliens, but from their dogs who are refused entry into the country. Federal Law Enforcement officials at the southern border are directed to ignore the dog problem, leading Eagle Pass Police Chief Federico Garza, Jr. to respond. “The feds are saying, ‘Well the animals are not our responsibility.’ Well, guess what? It comes in a package. You just can’t discard the animal out there and make it my problem. It’s all of our problem.” 

According to Big Dog Rescue Ranch, which specializes in rescuing abandoned dogs at the Mexican border, there will be 50,000 dogs annually that will be left to fend for themselves in triple-digit temperatures with scarce food and water available. Many of these former pets of illegal aliens did not have their animals neutered or spayed before the journey north. The dogs that are not fixed will continue to breed, and the number of homeless dogs will exponentially grow.  No one, except some dog rescue operations, seems to have care.

The usually vociferous PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has nothing to say about the ongoing canine crisis on the border. PETA is a staunch advocate for sterilizing dogs because they believe there are not enough good homes for them. But nowhere on their website is a concern or even a statement about the 50,000 dogs abandoned by the American government at the southern border. These dogs were formally domesticated animals. Due to the travesty of letting them go free, they will either die or revert into feral animals who will never be able to be acclimated to a domestic situation again.  

PETA’s sanctimonious tone shows its hypocrisy and left-leaning stance. Their complete denial that animals suffer on the border because of the Biden Administration’s open border policy is never mentioned. In PETA’s own words, “The abuse that animals suffer at human hands is heartbreaking, sickening, and infuriating…But as hard as it is to think about, we can’t stop animals’ suffering if we simply look the other way and pretend it isn’t happening… Animals are counting on compassionate people like you to give them a voice and be their heroes by learning about the issues they face and taking action. Each of us has the power to save animals from nightmarish suffering-and best of all, it’s easier than you might think.”

Another national organization, ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) hasn’t found the time or resources either to help these abandoned dogs. Their website publishes their mission, “The ASPCA works to keep more animals in loving homes by protecting animals from harmful situations through community engagement, preventative action and providing resources and care when needed.” Well, ASPCA, your help is needed with 50,000 discarded dogs.

If PETA and ASPCA really walked the walk and not just the talk, they would be setting up triage centers immediately at the southern border to protect these helpless animals from certain destruction and pain. It is, of course, a measure of any society how helpless creatures are treated, either humanely or inhumanly, that makes a society moral or immoral. It sure seems the measure of our society is lacking when once domesticated dogs are left behind, resulting in horrible lives and premature deaths of these helpless creatures.
