NEW: As of 7:15pm Del Rio time, here is what the situation under the international bridge looks like, where close to 15,000 migrants have camped out after crossing illegally. Many of the migrants have constructed makeshift shelters from sticks and plants. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/i6tyPxSw25— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) September 19, 2021
I’m now on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande where thousands of migrants crossed illegally into Del Rio today. The migrants left piles of trash, and the area has now been secured with barbed wire by Texas DPS. The flow of migrants has stopped & DPS is here in force. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/0oFzQXRALs— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) September 19, 2021
Part of our live shot w/ @DanaPerino from under the international bridge in Del Rio, TX this morning, where upwards of 12,000 migrants remain after crossing into the US illegally. Mostly Haitians and Africans. Port of Entry above us remains closed to legal migration. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/AQjBgyFo0p— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) September 20, 2021
they should just be mowed down and left to rot where they fall, like any other invader https://t.co/u5uJtHfR35— HHH (@UnvaxxedGoy) September 20, 2021
I really don’t have much to say about this.
What else can you say? It is another scene of imperial decline.
The images and videos coming out of Texas speaks for itself. This has been going on ever since Joe Biden was inaugurated in January. The only difference now is seeing so many black faces joining the flood. Joe Biden granted “Temporary Protected Status” to 100,000 Haitians back in May.
Did you know that we spend over a trillion dollars a year on defense related costs? We spent $740 billion on the 2021 NDAA which went mostly to the Pentagon. We spend much more on “defense” though when you include the Department of Homeland Security, the VA, foreign aid through the State Department, maintaining the nuclear stockpile under the Department of Energy, etc. The so-called “Department of Defense” isn’t even responsible for border security which is now a DHS responsibility. We’re rapidly going broke spending so much money every year on “defense.”
In theory, we maintain military bases on six continents in order to protect the “Homeland” from terrorists and hostile foreign powers. We have hundreds of thousands of American troops “forward deployed” abroad. These people just walk right into the country and get on a bus and end up in your neighborhood. This is what the term “defense” looks like in practice in a rotting and dying empire.
Once upon a time, we had a government that had the capacity to perform basic functions and provide basic services for its citizens. Today, we spend over a trillion dollars a year on “defense” to get this. The generals start and lose wars abroad and don’t even bother to defend the Homeland.
