It was a hoot reading
the front-page headline about VP Harris’s trip to Central America: US to
Target Root Causes of Migration, it blared.
Well, I’ll be darned
I thought, that is one way to keep people from wanting to come to the good ole
U.S. of A – get rid of the reasons why they want to come here.
My mind started
whirling as I counted the ways that Harris and the rest of the Biden
administration was already hard at work to eliminate the reasons foreigners
want to be Americans.
First, they were
destroying the economy, giving money to keep people home and NOT to work while
the job market was screaming for more workers.
the energy industry, shutting down natural resources from being used, blowing
tax monies on non-productive ‘green’ wind and solar infrastructure that won’t

According to a
recent poll, roughly half of the seven billion people on the planet want to be
Americans because it has been the best country on the planet to be a citizen
So, just whack
America down, make it a less desirable place and, presto! – less people will
want to come here and we’ll solve the border crisis that has arisen since Trump
left office and Biden was enthroned.
This is what I
thought the article was about, reading from the headline. But, wait, I was wrong! According to Harris, the root cause of
migration to America isn’t that it is a better place but, it is corruption,
human trafficking and violence in their native lands. And, by gum, she is doing heroic work in
putting all of that to an end so that potential immigrants will be content to
