Biden administration asks for volunteer help amid growing border crisis

President Joe Biden’s Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has sent a letter to government agencies begging for volunteers to help border officials with the growing number of unaccompanied children crossing the nation’s southern border.

“We are actively working to screen, process and deploy these volunteers while continuing our recruitment efforts and exploration of other avenues to bolster staff resources at the border,” an OPM spokesperson said.

Kathleen McGettigan, acting director of OPM, said the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) needs federal government civilian employees for deployment of up to 120 days at facilities for unaccompanied children.

The locations include Dallas, San Diego, San Antonio and Fort Bliss. Future locations will likely be added, according to the memo.

More than 16,000 unaccompanied children were reported in government custody as of last week. More than 5,000 are housed in Customs and Border Protection facilities.

More than 100,000 illegal immigrants crossed the nation’s southern border in February. The spike in border crossings has led to a new strain on the immigration system.

The surge in immigration has been largely attributed to President Joe Biden’s policy changes. He signed an executive order to end most deportations for 100 days on his first day in office.

Both Republican and Democrat leaders have criticized the president’s policies. Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) recently leaked photos from a Donna, Texas, camp to increase transparency of the situation.

These immigrant children need help beyond what government can supply. Volunteers are a great step, but better policies could prevent this problem altogether.

Washington DC, Biden’s home in Delaware, K Harris’s home, Nancy Pelosi’s home, Chuck Schumer’s home, AOC ‘s home should all be added to the list for illegals to stay!

Prior to January, Sleepy Joe had never been the number one in any organization he was a member of. He wasn’t the top dog (majority leader) in the Senate. He wasn’t the top dog in the Executive branch (VP under Obama) until this year.

He has signed more executive orders than any recent President this far into his presidency, because he lacks the ability and skills to do things properly.

His one press conference was a farce with pre-staged questions from friendly reporters. They even announced what he’d be talking about in the conference. There was no off topic at the press conference.

He gives the appearance of being a puppet. Obama is a fairly constant visitor, offering advice or orders. His inner circle keep him sequestered and they answer for him because he seems unable to answer for himself.

He only won the Presidency because of COVID. He stayed locked in his cellar so the public couldn’t see his definite flaws and couldn’t test him as a leader.

HE DID NOTHING notable in his last 50 years besides ride Obamas coat tail. As far as the “Big picture” he has not laid out even ONEe plan. He keeps saying it’s coming but never does. WAKE up! Look at the mess he’s made already. Don’t even say the vaccine, because the last administration pushed that through not Biden. I worked with the legal and illegals entering this country and you have no idea what he just did to America with this open border crap!

I couldn’t agree with you more. Why should we help those wanting to come into this country before we help those for which are here now like all of the homeless that are sleeping on our streets. Need I remind folks that many of them are veterans.

If I have this right Sleepy Joe wants all these ILLEGALS coming into our country. Neither he or Harris have been to the border and have banned reporters. He is causing grief and problems for AMERICANS and doing it illegally. So let Joe and Harris, along with Pelosi and others take all these ILLEGALS that they want here and put them up in their mansions and their floating mansions. They don’t need our help or our money, they already have more than they need.

I’ll be happy to volunteer right after I see him and his worthless family getting their worthless selves down to the border and helping. Send them back, load up several planes with them, and send them all back. Then let them come back after they do what is required to be legal. We are either a country of laws or we are not. Of course often it seems to me like the laws only apply to We the People.

The trouble is, they are not going to fix it. If anything they will only make it worse. They have no idea what they are doing. They just want to undo everything President Trump did. They will keep doing this until the Republicans get up off the rears and put a stop to it, and I’m afraid we have none that will do that.

How dumb can you get! Biden could have finished the wall. increased the ICE force. Have the immigrants come in legally. Then he could done a little jig and claim how he fixed the border when Trump could not do it. The Drug Cartel will probably send him a cut of the millions they made from his great decisions He helped them make Millions. Joe is such a good Guy.

Gulliver, after being shipwrecked (Biden’s policies are the shipwreck) is washed up on the beach of Lilliput (our southern border) ,overwhelms the Lilliputs (Biden and his administration)/ They don’t know what to make of this giant (crisis). This country is self de-structing in the hands of the current Democrat treachery. I hope we make it for two years when we can get rid of them

IT’S TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

202-224-3841

He wants Help! He’s not helping Americans. Send the illegals back home now or load them on freight trains and take them straight to Washington DC, point out the Capitol and White house and office buildings of the Reps and Senators to them and say go get your vaccines and help there. Then shut down all trains, busses, taxis, airplanes, and trucking to the DC area for a least two weeks an see how things work out.

But, voting is all I am able to do, at age 80. And this is the main problem with this and about all websites where comments are left. They are about all made by people who can only sit at a computer. Everyone knows what needs to be done, but none of us who are commenting on what needs to be done, aren’t able to do it. I am praying for those still able to help will get off their rears and HELP. The rest of us can pray.
