Trump’s border security theater hasn’t ended — it’s gotten worse

According to this article on MSNBC, by Hayes Brown, MSNBC Opinion Columnist

“There are a lot of problems with the U.S. immigration system. Of all the even halfway decent fixes that have been proposed over the years, though, sending in the military to deter immigrants at the southern border ranks pretty far down the list. And yet that’s exactly what’s happening, part of a process that I highly doubt will make anyone safer, be they a U.S. citizen or a migrant who has recently crossed the border.

In a rush of gubernatorial one-upmanship, National Guard troops and state police officers are being sent from around the country to fortify Texas and Arizona — sort of. Meanwhile, thousands of service members are unwilling participants in a farce, play-acting at an actual solution to immigration issues that have loomed over the country for decades now. Those federal troops whom former President Donald Trump first deployed ahead of the 2018 midterms will apparently spend another year doing, well, something along the southwestern border.”

” Mexico’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Monday it rejects any effort to reimplement the controversial Trump-era policy known as “remain in Mexico” for asylum-seekers.

The policy, officially named the “Migrant Protection Protocols” (MPP), requires some asylum-seekers to be sent back to Mexico during immigration proceedings.

In December, U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk halted the Biden administration’s latest attempt to end the program while a legal challenge, launched by Texas and Missouri aimed at forcing its reinstatement, is considered in court.”

Here are the key issues to watch for in Biden’s State of the Union

According to this article on NPR, by Domenico Montanaro

“The State of the Union represents a chance for the president to address the nation on where he thinks the country stands, where it is headed and what his priorities are ahead of an expected announcement that he will officially run for reelection.

But President Biden, who turned 80 this past November, has quite the task ahead of him. Despite an unemployment rate that is the lowest since 1969, Americans continue to be in a sour mood about the direction of the country. Two-thirds say it is headed in the wrong direction, and a majority disapproves of the job Biden is doing as president.

That’s true not just on the economy and inflation, but on issues ranging from crime and guns to immigration and the war in Ukraine.”

In divided nation, Americans do agree on this: Biden should talk about economy — CBS News poll

According to this article on CBS News, by Anthony Salvanto, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus, Kabir Khanna

“The state of our union is … ?

We asked people to describe it, and received some dour assessments: they picked “divided” most of all, followed by “declining” and “weak.” Few picked adjectives “strong,” or — amid tough economic ratings — “prospering.”

These aren’t just one-sided partisan points. Partisans share the sense of division and decline more than prosperity. It is in part a function of such dire views of the economy and inflation right now.

In all, it’s a tough environment for a president addressing Congress and the nation.”
