Immigration policies being implemented by the Biden White House are responsible for a fivefold increase in illegal immigration, claims an Arizona sheriff.

Sheriff Mark Dannels of Cochise County, Ariz. told Just the News that the new president’s “hasty” immigration policy changes are responsible for the uptick in illegal crossings. Local officials were not given the time to prepare before Biden signaled a lenient view on the southern border, prompting increased crossings.

“It just makes it really, really tough, because now the message is, ‘Come across our border, legally or illegally,'” Dannels said. “And then the consequences are minimum, if any.”

Sheriff warns Biden’s policies won’t just effect Border but entire nation

The sheriff said he respects Biden’s right to make policy changes, but the sweeping 180 from President Trump did not give local officials enough time to respond.

“[I]t’s tough for us, because what happens in my border county, and the 31 border counties on the Southwest border, will soon be in your backyard,” Dannels said. He added that often times migrants will fan out into other areas to find resources.

“It just seems so irrational, so not organized, not collective, not collaborative,” he said. “It’s just a point of disaster that I just don’t see any good come out of this for anybody involved.”

Democrat Del Rio Mayor pleads for Biden to stop flow of illegal migrants

This news comes as Del Rio, Texas democratic mayor Bruno Lozano took to Youtube this week to plead with Biden to “please stop” and to “make a new plan” with migrants flooding his city.

“I am pleading and requesting with you to please put a halt to any measures regarding the release of immigrants awaiting court dates into the city of Del Rio and surrounding areas,” Lozano said in a Feb. 17 video.

The Texas mayor begged Biden to cease his policy allowing migrants to flood the United States while awaiting court hearings, instead of having to stay in Mexico under the Trump administration.

While Arizona sheriffs and Texas mayors are blaming Biden’s new policies and begging him to change his policies, former president Donald Trump is planning to make his first public appearance this week at CPAC, where he is expected to discuss immigration.

Shanghai: China’s Potemkin Village

Following a recent outbreak of COVID-19, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has imposed a month-long draconian lockdown on the residents of Shanghai. The CCP has used the outbreak to persecute its own citizens, including through forced evictions and quarantines, and placing alarms on doors to prevent COVID-19 people from leaving their homes. The harsh measures have resulted in food and healthcare shortages and separation of families.

But of course, we wouldn’t know that by reading the CCP-run press readily available in the United States. Instead of presenting the facts, the CCP engages in a comprehensive propaganda campaign that props up Shanghai as a Chinese Potemkin village. The CCP media asserts that China’s actions in Shanghai are benevolent and wise, while Western criticism is a product of malice. Chinese state-run media also insists that the Shanghai lockdown promotes economic stability in China and the world.

Claim 1: China Has the Best Policy for Combating COVID-19

The CCP media portray the Shanghai lockdown as the best and ideal policy. As cited by a XinhuaNet editorial, “China’s dynamic zero-COVID approach” is “the best option to save lives,” according to a “Rwandan researcher and publisher,” “…a miracle for us to learn,” according to a Kenyan scholar, and “a very ideal response,” according to Ethiopia’s National COVID-19 Response Task Force Coordinator. According to CCP media, Chinese citizens have greeted the Shanghai lockdown warmly, even with “[a] mixed sense of intensity, unity and hopefulness,” according to China Daily.

Claim 2: The West Hypocritically Defames China

The CCP press also accuses the West of lying about the Shanghai lockdown, and using COVID policies for nefarious ends. According to XinhuaNet, “Shanghai…has never imposed what Western media described as a ‘lockdown.’” Other CCP editorials actually accuse the West of malice. One Global Times editorial claims that the lockdown “has been deliberately exaggerated by the West.” Another Global Times editorial asserts that the Western approach of “coexisting with the virus” amounts to a way “…to drive out a large number of the vulnerable people with low immunity,” and a form of “cruel social Darwinism.”

Claim 3: China’s COVID Policies Result in an Economic Windfall to China and the World

The CCP also portrays the lockdown as necessary to achieve great economic growth in China and beyond. One Global Times editorial, while conceding that the lockdown amounted to a “sealing-off,” it is “a temporary measure to better resume work and production and to make the economy and society function more effectively. Its effectiveness has been proven.” According to another Global Times editorial, China’s policy is “widely considered to be the best strategy…to both contain the epidemic and ensure stable economic development.”

In an Orwellian fashion, Chinese press claims that China is solving, not causing, the world’s economic problems. According to XinhuaNet, “China has played a decisive role in stabilizing the global economy and resuming the supply chain disrupted by COVID-19.” Citing a Bloomberg article, the same XinhuaNet editorial claims that China “has prevented a huge number of deaths at home and ensured that everything from iPhones and Teslas to fertilizer and car parts continues to flow to the rest of the world.” Chinese citizens, of course, are collateral damage: Ji Qiwei, vice-general manager of SAIC Motor Passenger Vehicle, stated that “The domestic market may be impacted a little by the COVID-19 outbreak this year, but our export market will continue to see strong growth,” according to China Daily.

While the world continues to suffer economic and human damage as a result of COVID-19, China continues to revise history regarding its role. Through its propaganda in its English publications of Xinhua, China Daily, and Global Times, China seeks to portray itself as a benevolent force in the fight against the virus.
