Border Crisis

Biden’s Miller Time


Cjones09292021

The reason the number of immigrants and refugees crashing our border increased after Donald Trump was kicked out of office by a free and fair democratic election is because Donald Trump was kicked out of office.

President Joe Biden promised a more humane and tolerant immigration policy that inspired thousands of immigrants, making them believe the door was now open. And while separating families is no longer official government policy, a lot of the Trump policies have remained in place, like child detainment.

Biden’s messaging to the world was a little messed up. He promised a more human treatment of refugees yet has continued a lot of Trumpian policies. We are still detaining children. We are still deporting refugees without allowing them to legally seek asylum. The rule Joe Biden is using to deport Haitians who haven’t been in Haiti for over a decade, back to Haiti, was designed by Stephen Miller.

Stephen Miller used his position as senior adviser in the Trump administration to push a racist xenophobic agenda that broke down and backlogged the asylum system. The Muslim ban was a favorite of the administration.

According to CNN, during a 2018 meeting in the White House, Miller asked the room, “What do you guys want? A bunch of Iraqs and ‘Stans across the country?” If you think the withdrawal from Afghanistan was a disaster, thank Trump for negotiating it with the Taliban and Stephen Miller for the backlog of Afghanis who helped U.S. forces. Or as Miller would call them, “Stans.”

Biden wasn’t ready for the border crisis. This is obvious. But maybe we stop using policies created by xenophobic creepazoid racists.

Yippee-Ki-Yay Haiti


cjones09242021

Images and videos have been posted online showing Border Patrol agents on horseback corralling Haitian immigrants as if they were cattle. Some of the agents were waiving reigns at the immigrants which have brought accusations that the agents were whipping the immigrants.

We are having a crisis at the border as thousands of Haitians are trying to enter the United States from Mexico after traveling thousands of miles through South America. Neither Mexico or the United States is offering asylum to these immigrants. President Joe Biden, who promised a more humane treatment of refugees, has continued some of the Trump-era policies on immigration. He’s deported about a thousand immigrants to Haiti and is now planning at least seven flights a day of more deportations. Haiti is expecting at least 14,000 deported refugees to arrive in their nation. Refugees don’t seek asylum in Haiti. Refugees seek asylum FROM Haiti. If these refugees were Cuban, all they’d have to do is enter the United States and claim asylum. But since they’re NOT from Cuba, and instead, from Haiti, they get deported.

These images of Border Patrol agents playing cowboy and treating black immigrants harshly, shouting curses at them while they’re being corralled, looks like another continuation of Donald Trump and Stephen Miller’s border policies.

President Biden has replaced Trump’s director of Border Patrol, but he needs to do much more to reform this agency. Why? Because Border Patrol has a long history of being corrupt and racist. They were corrupt and racist before Trump became president.

For example, the guy Biden removed last June supported Trump’s racist border wall. This guy was the head of Border Patrol and that agency knows the wall is just a racist prop. The Border Patrol’s union supports the racist wall. Previously, the union didn’t support the wall because they knew it didn’t work…but when Trump attached racism to it, they jumped on the racist Trump train.

During the Trump era, Border Patrol agents were filmed destroying jugs of water left by human rights activists for immigrants. You see, the desert is hot and the people coming here have walked through it for hundreds of miles. Even if they entered this nation illegally, they still don’t deserve to die of thirst…or die at all. Destroying water left for immigrants is a dick move. Anyone doing this should be charged for attempted murder.

The Border Patrol has a 100-mile limit jurisdiction into the U.S. from the border yet they often stop vehicles outside of their jurisdiction. They’re real fond of pulling over Greyhound buses outside that 100-mile zone from the border and without warrants. A Greyhound bus is private property. By the way, two thirds of the U.S. population lives within 100 miles from the United States border. Border Patrol has enough people to fuck with inside their jurisdiction.

Border Patrol agents have been busted denying food, water, medicine, and basic decent treatment to immigrants in their custody. Immigrants have died in their custody, even children.

Border Patrol agents have been accused of verbal, physical and psychological abuse. We know they have separated families intentionally and as a policy. The family separation was an intentional Trump policy. Children in cages was a Border Patrol practice.

You know the United States demands human rights of other nations. We criticize places like Cuba, North Korea, China, Iran, etc, over their human rights records and demand improvement. Meanwhile, Amnesty International screams at us over our treatment of immigrants. Also, we get screamed at by other nations for the death penalty. Civilized nations don’t execute people like it’s the stone age. Also, there’s Texas and Florida.

Then there’s the corruption. In 2017, Border Patrol gave Accenture Federal Services a $297 million contract to hire 7,500 people over five years. A year later, after being paid  $13.6 million of the contract, the private company had only hired two people. In case you’re a Republican, two is less than 7,500. This contract was awarded to fulfill Trump’s demands that Border Patrol hire 5,000 more agents and 10,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Fun fact: Two out of three applicants to become Border Patrol agents flunk their polygraph tests. Apparently, only corrupt racist fucks want to be Border Patrol agents.

Some Border Patrol agents, whose responsibility includes combating the immigrant mule trade, are themselves mules. One agent, who was actually an undocumented immigrant, used a fake birth certificate to get the job, then used the job to smuggle over 100 immigrants into the United States. He even used a Border Patrol truck for his smuggling. So apparently, some of these guys are getting through the agency’s polygraph test or it didn’t ask, “Are you yourself an undocumented immigrant looking to use this job to smuggle in more undocumented immigrants in a Border Patrol truck?” Maybe add that to the test or just stop allowing “squirrel” to be an acceptable answer to any question.

Another agent was caught on a wiretap bragging he smuggled 30 to 50 immigrants at a time. Other Border Patrol agents were caught harboring undocumented immigrants. Some Border Patrol agents were harboring immigrants to have sex with them. Add that to the polygraph. “Do you intend to rape immigrants?” Border Patrol would be looking for “no,” right?

What we need to do is corral every Border Patrol agent, find the racists, deviants, and corrupt members and brand all of them. And everyone who fails the Border Patrol polygraph can probably get jobs at Mar-a-Lago.

President Biden promised we were going to be better than Trump. So…when do we start doing that?

Gabba Gabba Haiti


Cjones09222021

Thousands of Haitians have come to the United States border seeking a better life for themselves and their children. They heard it was easier to cross the border now that Joe Biden is president and the racist guy was thrown out of office after being defeated in the 2020 presidential election. They were wrong.

Yes, the new guy is much better than the previous guy, but the new guy is still using policies enacted by the old guy. The United States of America should not be implementing a policy crafted by the xenophobic Stephen Baby Goebbels Miller. Policies like that should be trashed and sent to the worst place in the world, which is probably Haiti..or Indiana. Instead, we are sending the Haitians at our border back to Haiti.

Sure, they’re from Haiti but most of them haven’t been in Haiti for over a decade. I’m from Louisiana (mostly) and I haven’t been back there in nearly two decades. And if you deported me back to Louisiana, I’d be pretty pissed.

If you’re a buttmunch, then you probably think they all left Haiti last week and they’re just now arriving at our southern border. The truth is, most of them left in 2010 after a devastating earthquake hit their nation that shares a Caribbean island with the Dominican Republic. Where did all these asylum-seeking Haitians go? They went to South America with most of them landing in Chile and Brazil.

While Haiti, Chile, and Brazil are each in Latin America by location, they’re not all Latinos (this is debated a lot). It often comes down to language and skin color. Spanish is the official language of Chile. Portuguese is the official language of Brazil. And in Haiti, they have two official languages, French and Haitian Creole. By race, Brazil is 47 percent white and 43 percent mixed. Chile is nearly 90 percent white. Haiti is 95 percent black. So guess what immigrant Haitians encountered in Chile and Brazil? Yup. Racism. That stuff is everywhere.

So, with Joe Biden in the White House, Haitians in South America thought now would be a great time to abandon the lives they’ve created over the past decade and go somewhere to escape racism. They chose the United States. Ugh. Bad call. Did I mention Baby Goebbels was writing immigration policy? Did I mention we’re still using it? Isn’t this why we got rid of the last guy? I mean, one of the major reasons why?

So, the Biden administration, which is supposed to be more humane than the last administration full of Nazis, Klansmen, and fuckers, is exporting all these Haitians back to Haiti. That is a messed-up deal.

Haiti is not a great place to be. There are earthquakes, massive crime, poverty (poorest nation in the western hemisphere), a very low literacy rate, and the prime minister was recently assassinated. I once went out with a girl who had been living in Haiti (back in the 80s) and she told me it was basically legal to murder someone by hitting them with your car, and the biggest hassle from it was filling out insurance forms for damage to your car. A car can be more valuable than a human life in Haiti.

I would not want to send my worst enemy to Haiti. Haiti is so bad, I wouldn’t want to send Stephen Miller to Haiti….wait a minute. Yes, I would. I would love to send Stephen Miller to Haiti. Did I mention 95 percent of Haiti is black? Did I mention they don’t speak a lot of English? He’ll love it there. He can even take his new bride, Frau Farbissana, and their new baby, who is in the Guinness Book of World Records for being born with a Hitler mustache and a can of spray-on hair. How do we make these deportations happen?

Joe Biden is exporting these people back to Haiti under a Trump policy. Yes, a policy written by Stephen Miller. And Haiti, expecting at least 14,000, says they can’t take all of them at once. This is a poverty-ravaged nation that’s still recovering from an earthquake from a decade ago. Haiti has no place to put these immigrants being deported by Biden. These Haitians are about become refugees in their home nation, which is how a lot of black U.S. citizens feel in the U.S. They took a huge gamble leaving jobs and homes in Chile and Brazil to come to the U.S. Now, they’re finding themselves back in Haiti. Most of these people would rather be sent back to Chile and Brazil, even with the racism factor. It’s still better than Haiti. Some of them might even be OK with Indiana (which is another place we can send the Goebbels, er…Miller family where they’d be really comfortable).

And while there are thousands of non-English speaking black people in a humanitarian crisis, most of our nation is fixated on one missing white girl. Stephen Miller’s out looking for her now.

Creative note: As you may know, I like to draw my cartoons in the morning. It’s nice to kick them out early and have the rest of the day to goof off and write my next cartoon. Fact: Goofing off helps write cartoons. Pull my finger.

Delivering the cartoons in the A.M. is also advantageous to my clients as they can place it on their pages and sites for their next day’s edition. And, it helps with big mondo national reprints so my readers can be fooled into believing I’m a big cheese. The best way for me to work with this is to have my idea before going to bed so I can be free to have nightmares about zombies and taking out the garbage in my boxer/briefs (it’s a real fear of mine because I’m often at home not wearing pants). I usually won’t go to bed until I’ve decided on an idea. Last night turned into this morning. I got the idea around 2:00 A.M. and my first thought was, “Ooh.” My second thought was, “I can’t do this. It’s really insensitive.” My third thought was, “Wait a moment…that’s what I do.”

I was afraid proofer Laura would say, “Ugh…but you’re going to do what you’re going to do.” I get that from her sometimes along with, “Put on some pants.” But instead, she said, “Yeah, baby.” OK, she didn’t say, “Yeah, baby” but she liked the cartoon. Even though Laura liked it, the cartoon has already been criticized by a few readers. I’m OK with that. It’s what I do…like not wearing pants.
