It would have been better if they had stayed in Mexico

 (My new American Thinker post)

Upon taking office, the Biden administration killed the "stay in Mexico" policy.  
They claimed that their approach was more humanitarian but were never forced to explain from "the basement" what that actually meant.   
Two years later, we know that it meant opening the border and handing people a court date and hope that they show up for the hearing.
Yesterday, a judge halted another of the Biden administration's ideas.   
This is the story:
The Biden administration was dealt a major blow in its efforts to control the ongoing border crisis on Tuesday when a federal judge blocked a rule introduced in May that makes migrants ineligible for asylum if they have entered illegally and failed to take advantage of expanded lawful pathways set up by the federal government.
Judge Jon Tigar of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California blocked the Circumvention of Lawful Pathways rule in response to a lawsuit from a coalition of left-wing immigration groups, which claimed the rule was similar to a Trump-era transit ban that was similarly blocked. He found the rule is "both substantively and procedurally invalid" and has delayed his ruling from taking effect for 14 days to give the administration time to appeal.
So the Biden administration is now at war with the immigration activists who persuaded this judge to halt another one of the administration's ideas.   
This is what happens when you refuse to enforce immigration law and try to govern by making the activists happy.  It raises the price of gasoline, and everything else, when you try to please the climate activists.  It creates chaos on the border when you change policies that were working, such as stay in Mexico.
As someone who came here with my parents many years ago, I appreciate that many people want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  At the same time, it must be done in an orderly fashion so that you don't create the chaos and confusion we see at the border.

Happy # 74 Maureen McGovern

We say happy birthday to Maureen McGovern who was born in Youngstown, Ohio, on this day in 1949.

We remember Maureen for "Morning after" or the theme song of the movie "The Poseidon Adventure".  Remember the one about the cruise ship that flipped  over in the middle of the ocean?

Scary movie and a nice pop song by Maureen McGovern.  

It was the a big hit in the summer of 1973!  She did not have another Top 20 until "Different worlds" in 1979, a song that reminds me of "The love boat" theme song.

"There's got to be a morning after
If we can hold on through the night
We have a chance to find the sunshine
Let's keep on lookin' for the light

Oh, can't you see the morning after
It's waiting right outside the storm
Why don't we cross the bridge together
And find a place that's safe and warm

It's not too late, we should be giving
Only with love can we climb
It's not too late, not while we're living
Let's put our hands out in time

There's got to be a morning after
We're moving closer to the shore
I know we'll be there by tomorrow
And we'll escape the darkness
We won't be searchin' any more

There's got to be a morning after
(There's got to be a morning after)
There's got to be a morning after..."

Happy # 81 Bobbie Gentry

2013 podcast: Let's chat with Frank Burke about "A failure to communicate"

We spoke with Frank Burke, contributor to American Thinker, about his latest: "A failure to communicate".   

Frank has this advice to conservatives:

"Both in terms of technology and content, communication has changed vastly in the past quarter century and continues to evolve. Cable television has added multiple programming choices. Radio has been augmented by satellite services. Most local newspapers have been in decline, and many traditional magazines have vanished or gone digital. Social media adds an entirely new dimension, and video games are now mainstream with more than half (52.4%) of the U.S. television population having access to a console."
