Today, The Two Mikes were again fortunate to host the president of the Border Commerce and Security Council, Nelson Balido. Mr. Balido recently visited the American side of the U.S.-Mexico border, and has just returned from touring the Mexican side.
He describes the border situation as being out of control, but only because of the actions of the Biden administration. The picture he painted in our interview was one of a disaster of the Democrats’ own making, and one which can be ended in 24 hours if Trump’s border regulations are immediately reinstalled.
There is no secret path to fixing the problem, only the obvious and commonsense one of restoring the secure border position Biden inherited. Mr. Balido also explained that the influx of illegal aliens should be seen as a direct threat to Americans who are in the lower and lower-middle class as there are large numbers of skilled workers and craftsmen—plumbers, mechanics, electricians, carpenters, machinists, etc.—among those entering the United States.
He said that these people will be willing to work for less money than the U.S. citizens who are now engaged in the skilled trades, and so will displace some of them. He noted that it was odd that union bosses support Biden’s policies even when they hurt union members.
