The Biden administration is apparently only apathetic on the issue of illegal immigration as long as it’s coming through the U.S.-Mexico border.

Amid protests in Haiti following the assassination of their president and in Cuba against the repressive communist regime, the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas spoke to tell potential migrants from both countries not to come to the U.S.

According to Fox News:

Mayorkas said those fleeing Cuba or Haiti by sea would not be allowed into the U.S. — and would either be returned or, if they were found to have a fear of persecution, referred to a third country.

“The time is never right to attempt migration by sea,” Mayorkas said at a press conference. “To those who risk their lives doing so, this risk is not worth taking.”

“Allow me to be clear. If you take to the sea, you will not come to the United States,” he said.

What’s the concern for border security all of the sudden? It’s tempting to cynically believe this is simply because Cubans are more likely to vote Republican, but Haitian migrants overwhelmingly vote Democrat, so that can’t be it. Realistically, it’s more likely the case that the administration simply doesn’t want the terrible optics of fighting two border crises, especially considering they’ve proven themselves incapable of handing one.
