Crimes like rapes, murders, and all matter of illegalities have skyrocketed at the border due to the Biden Regime’s already-failed immigration policies. Over 172,000 ‘encounters’ with illegal aliens were reported in just March, a historic increase. This includes the highest recorded number of unaccompanied minors in history by a large margin.
Kamala Harris was placed in charge of these dramatic crises 32 days ago. However, she still has not bothered to visit the border to see what is going on there. That must be why she believes that planting trees will somehow solve a global criminal enterprise of human trafficking by drug cartels aided and abetted by her Whitehouse’s policies. But who could possibly believe something so ridiculous? Is it possible that such a demonstrably ineffective policy could be created sincerely, or is it just another irrational policy in order to push Marxist green policies while not solving any real problems being faced on Earth?

“Vice President Kamala Harris will hold a virtual meeting with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on May 7 to discuss migration amid an increase in underage migrants at the U.S. southern border.
Mexico’s top diplomat revealed the news and said the video meeting will focus on Mexico’s questioned tree-planting program.
López Obrador is trying to get the United States to help fund a massive expansion of the program into Central America as a way to stem migration.”
Yes, you read that right…the proposed solution to the biggest spike in human trafficking and drug smuggling in America’s history is to plant trees.
“Officials are scrambling to handle a dramatic spike in children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border alone, which has lead to a massive expansion in emergency facilities to house them as more kids arrive than are being released to close relatives in the United States.
…López Obrador pitched his ‘Planting Life’ program, which aims to pay farmers to plant 1 billion fruit and timber trees in Mexico, to U.S. President Joe Biden at Thursday’s climate change summit.
The program has been extended to El Salvador, and Mexico wants U.S. funding to further extend it to Honduras and Guatemala.
López Obrador claims the program can help prevent farmers from leaving their land and migrating to the United States. He has also proposed that the U.S. grant six-month work visas, and eventually citizenship, to some of those who participate in the program.”
Remarkably, it is only the environmentalists so far that are bothering to question this bizarre no proposal.
“…environmentalists question whether planting big swaths of commercial species – sometimes on land that held native forests – is a good idea.”
But beyond questioning whether it is useful in any way for immigration, it also has already been proven to have other issues as well.
“The program has already planted 700,000 trees in Mexico, where it pays 450,000 Mexican farmers a stipend of about $225 per month to tend the saplings.
Some critics have suggested that farmers with marginal or unprofitable natural woodlands have simply cut them down in order to plant new trees and qualify for the monthly stipend.
López Obrador says the carbon-capture from trees in the reforestation program will make a major contribution to fighting climate change.
But at the same time, López Obrador’s administration has focused on building oil refineries and burning more coal and fuel oil at power plants, while placing limits on private renewable and gas-fired electricity generation.
The White House has said her role is to try and determine the ‘root causes’ of migration, such as economic strife and violence that motivate people to try and reach America.
‘This week I’m bringing together foundation leaders from across our country to really encourage them to do more in terms of the civil society piece of this, which will be about both growing the work that they’ve already done historically, but also engaging civil society in the region in the Northern Triangle,’ she said.
Though Harris has not visited the border, her children’s book Superheroes are Everywhere is being included in welcome packs for unaccompanied children who cross the border illegally.
Images taken at a California shelter for migrants this week show Harris’ book sitting on a cot along with a backpack, some clothes and other basic supplies like body wash and toothpaste.
These form the welcome kits for unaccompanied migrant children arriving the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center, which has recently been converted to deal with an influx of illegal immigration .
In March, U.S. Customs and Border Protection released data showing they had encountered the highest number of unaccompanied children in history crossing the southern border.”
