Sen. Blumenthal (D-CT) and the “Illegals”

Most of the media has been very careful over the years not to tag as “illegal aliens” the border busters who are crossing illegally what has become a mythical redline (aka “the southern border”) into the United States. The preferred designation is usually “undocumented workers,” since the “workers” have no work visas.

The truth, hovering like a thunder cloud over our politics during the past year, has been painfully obvious to two sets of people: those living in border states whose daily lives have been upturned by a massive influx of “undocumented workers,” many of whom are too young to work in the United States; and voters elsewhere in the country who have eyes to see and ears to hear – excepting, of course, those whose partisan prejudices or political needs have rendered them deaf and dumb.

Among these last is Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., who, unlike President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, has not been asked whether he has visited the U.S. semi-permeable border. Blumenthal has not visited the border since it started bleeding illegal aliens. Asked by a WTNH-TV reporter to comment on a secret, early-morning plane delivery of illegal aliens to Westchester County, N.Y. – some of whom have been transported to Connecticut – Blumenthal affected astonishment. He said this was the way things were supposed to be: “If it is family reunification, if these children are brought to New York or New York state so they can be reunited, we might not know about it. That’s what these government agencies are supposed to be doing.”

“If” is the operative word in Blumenthal’s response. In fact, no one, including Blumenthal, knows how many of the illegal immigrants transported, as one newspaper noted, to Danbury and Hartford are resettlement children; how many have been legally processed before arriving in Connecticut; how many among the resettled children and others have been tested for COVID-19; of that number, how many have tested positive; how many “undocumented children” or older undocumented non-workers in the group, have been vaccinated, or where they will reside in Connecticut.

Biden sanctions applied to unvaccinated travelers entering the United States appear to be, ironically, far more stringent than they are for “undocumented workers.”

In point of fact, the United States provides a legal means of entry to refugees, and illegal entry always has been frowned upon by U.S. senators such as Blumenthal, a member of the Senate Caucus to End Human Trafficking. Human trafficking – and its attendant criminal features, including rape, prostitution, illegal drug running and avoidance of deportation – most dispassionate observers would agree, has been boosted by Biden’s inept border policies.

Some may find Blumenthal’s pretense of astonishment at the reporter’s question and his “white lie” answer are unbecoming of a man who, as Connecticut’s attorney general for two decades, is intimately familiar with laws, reasonable regulations, and those who intentionally break them.

Blumenthal is running for re-election in 2022.
