With a mountain of fentanyl and at least 6.3 million illegal aliens pouring over the U.S.-Mexico border under Joe Biden, many Americans are wondering how things got so bad, so fast. The answer is simple: Globalists ousted President Trump from office and put radical Democrats in charge. Now we’re all reaping the whirlwind.
Consider that more illegal aliens have entered through our southern border since Biden took office in January 2021 than there are people living in 33 U.S. states. Put another way, it’s the equivalent of the entire nation of El Salvador invading across the Rio Grande. Is that the Ellis Island-style American Dream we used to celebrate?
Then there’s the lethal synthetic opioid fentanyl, overwhelmingly manufactured by Chinese companies subsidized by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and smuggled into the United States via Canada and Mexico. Their intent is to weaken or kill an entire generation of American youth, crippling China’s hegemonic rival in the Pacific.
This is a war by any reasonable definition. So what’s the Biden administration’s response? Let’s collaborate on “shared drug priorities” with the CCP. Sure, Joe, try that.

What’s shocking is how rapidly this operation has grown. In 2020, smugglers imported 4,800 pounds of fentanyl into our country. In Biden’s first year, it doubled to 11,200 pounds. Today it’s 27,000 pounds.
In 2017, this writer attended a congressional briefing about the then still-obscure fentanyl. Back then opioids were killing 50,000 Americans each year, roughly two times the annual deaths from cocaine or methamphetamine overdoses.
Then Democrats opened the border up. In just Biden’s first year, fentanyl killed 80,000 Americans in 2021, more than the deaths of U.S. servicemen in the entire Vietnam War or in the Korean, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars combined.
This catastrophe was not inevitable. Illegal border crossings dropped to a new low under the Trump administration. But the far-left activists running today’s Democratic Party have a dark vision for America’s future, and it hinges on abolishing our nation’s pesky borders.
“Undocumented and Unafraid”
United We Dream (UWD) is one of the leading activist groups working to keep our borders open to illegal aliens, halt all deportations, and even defund the police.
UWD has battled the construction of the southern border wall, which the Biden administration quietly resumed last month (euphemized as a “barrier”). In response, the group organized a four-day “UndocuSummit” in New Mexico to “inoculat[e]” activists against “disinformation” and “anti-immigrant attacks.”
As of this writing, UWD is behind a new push to restart Obama’s DACA program—granting a path to citizenship to tens of thousands of so-called Dreamers—dubbed “Home is Here,” while savaging “right-wing politicians who will stop at nothing to use immigrants as scapegoats for their unpopular and inhumane policies.”
That also means helping people living in the U.S. illegally evade federal authorities from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“Don’t carry a passport,” UWD’s website warns, “it can help ICE deport you faster. Don’t provide a foreign ID . . . [it] reveals to the ICE agent that you were born in another country that is not the U.S.”
“ICE lies,” UWD’s website warns, “do not agree to what ICE asks.” The group recommends printing a poster detailing how to avoid getting deported on illegal aliens’ doors.
Borders Are Racist
UWD’s campaigns extend into the weird. The group boasts about its Undocumented Cookbook (“by immigrants!”) written for “the liberation of all communities of color” through the power of… Central American cooking. The book opens with a prayer to “The Universe” thanking “all of the plants, mushrooms, animals and minerals that gave of themselves to create this meal” and asking them to “clear it of any heavy energy.” It closes with a call to “ABOLISH ICE & CBP [Customs & Border Patrol] and the whole deportation force.”
“We know that the police, and the deportation force of ICE and CBP were born of white supremacy and anti-Blackness and must be defunded,” UWD executive director Greisa Martinez, herself a “queer” illegal alien, informs us. Naturally, it supports Black Lives Matter’s “demands to defund the police.”
Another campaign for an “immigrant cook-off” for illegal aliens and Dreamers is titled, “No Borders! Just Flavors!”
Online and across the country, hate groups, malicious content creators, and conservative politicians continue to drive forth attacks on books, education and even celebrations that empower immigrants and communities of color.
Ludicrous, yet that same organization spent $550,000 attacking Trump and backing Biden in the 2020 election. In 2021, it dropped another $552,000 on lobbying for “intersectional and racial justice”—Marxist-speak for open borders.
UWD poured more money into turning out youth voters in the 2018, 2020, and 2022 elections for radical politicians, including socialist “Squad” members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Tlaib.
That puts UWD squarely in the pro-Hamas camp, by the way. In 2021, the group signed a petition demanding the Biden administration cut all funding to Israel to “stop U.S. funds from being used to kill Palestinians and take their homes.” That caught the eye of the Communist Party USA, which praised UWD’s work in fighting “the Israeli occupation” and “U.S. imperialism.”
Sure enough, last week UWD warned Biden that supporting Israel over Palestine could depress Democrat turnout in the 2024 election. No condemnation of Hamas terrorism. For activists, it’s all about power.
Millions in the Bank
None of this would be possible without a near-limitless ocean of cash from Big Philanthropy. In 2021, $13 million of UWD’s $17.5 million budget came from “progressive” mega-funders, all tax-exempt foundations supposedly engaged in charity. Really?
At the top of the list is the Ford Foundation, which has pumped $20 million into UWD since 2013 to run its DACA lobbying campaigns and “Black/Brown solidarity work.” Add to that hundreds of thousands of dollars from George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.
UWD receives millions from a bevy of “dark money” pass-throughs, which exist to hide their donors’ identities: the Tides Foundation, NEO Philanthropy, and Arabella Advisors’ multi-billion-dollar nonprofit empire.
One of UWD’s top donors is the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, the vehicle used by Mark Zuckerberg to route $420 million to two nonprofits in 2020 which effectively privatized the election—the infamous “Zuck bucks” scheme. (I’ve documented the community foundation’s funding to partisan get-out-the-vote groups here).
Recall that the IRS bars tax-exempt foundations from intervening in elections. That doesn’t stop these mega-funders from bankrolling groups that—borrowing their buzzwords—educate, mobilize, and organize voters.
The Haas Fund, endowed with money from the Levi Strauss jeans fortune, gave $200,000 to UWD in 2019 for “creat[ing] and implement[ing] a campaign to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program and to grow its digital mobilizing capacity.” Mobilizing for what? Then there’s the $800,000 in Haas Fund grants “to advocate for rights and opportunities for undocumented young people.”
You know, charity. Wink, wink.
Hell to Pay
It’s clear as daylight that leftists want to flood America with illegal aliens because Democrats view them as future voters. Not U.S. citizens—just voters. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R–LA) recently got House Democrats to demonstrate that fact.
Operatives will do anything to spawn new Democrats; what they don’t give a fig about is these individuals’ welfare. Women and even children are being raped in huge numbers attempting to reach the U.S. border, egged on by vote-hungry “progressives” who promise them 5-star accommodations and free food in cities like New York.
“Month after month, I stood up and I said, ‘This is going to come to a neighborhood near you,’” New York Mayor Eric Adams (D) warned in September. “Well, we’re here. We’re here.”
Adams, no conservative, calls Biden’s open borders a “national crisis” that “will destroy New York City.” Welcome to the everyday reality in Arizona, Texas, and other border states.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), whom UWD accuses of “dehumanizing” migrants, shut down a San Antonio federal facility where he learned teens were being sexually assaulted in droves. Others are kidnapped and tortured by Mexican extortion rings aiming to bleed desperate migrants dry.
Then there are the terrorists flowing into America.
Border Patrol agents—the agency UWD wants to “abolish,” remember—caught 151 individuals on the FBI terror list crossing the southern border since October 2022, the highest number in the agency’s century-long history. Many of them are from Saudi Arabia, Colombia, Lebanon, Syria, and other hostile countries.
In mid-October, Border Patrol caught 4 Iranians trying to cross into Texas.
On Oct. 20, CBP’s San Diego division issued an internal memo warning agents to look out for a flood of “military-age males” and “individuals traveling by themselves:”
Individuals inspired by, or reacting to the current Israel-Hamas conflict may attempt travel to or from the area of hostilities in the Middle East via circuitous transit across the Southwest border. Foreign fighters motivated by ideology or mercenary soldiers of fortune may attempt to obfuscate travel to or from countries in the Middle East through Mexico.
“You’re insane if you don’t think terrorists will use that [our open border] to their advantage,” warns Trump administration CBP chief Rodney Scott.
This is the rotten fruit of the far-left activists running Joe Biden’s administration. How much suffering will it take to wake Americans up?
