President Joe Biden’s appearance at the dignified transfer of remains of the 13 soldiers slain in Afghanistan on Sunday was sharply criticized, according to accounts of the ceremony by family members.

One woman screamed at Biden across the airport tarmac, “I hope you burn in hell! That was my brother,” according to Mark Schmitz, the father of 20-year-old Lance Cpl. Jared Schmitz, who was killed in the suicide bombing attacks outside the Kabul Airport, speaking to the Washington Post.

Schmitz said he attended the ceremony with his ex-wife, and he glared as he said the president spent more time looking at his ex-wife while he spoke about his son Beau Biden, who died from cancer after leaving the military.

“I said, ‘Don’t you ever forget that name. Don’t you ever forget that face. Don’t you ever forget the names of the other 12,’ ” Schmitz said to the Post. “‘And take some time to learn their stories.’”

Biden bristled at the comment from Schmitz. He said, “I do know their stories.”

Schmitz is one of many family members who spoke out about their visit with Biden at the Dover Air Force base.

“It’s got to be difficult. I’m not saying it was easy at all. But you can’t run up and hug someone as if you had nothing to do with it. It’s not going to work that way when you’re commander-in-chief,” he told the Post.

Schmitz indicated he grew weary of Biden talking about his son Beau Biden’s death, in an attempt to sympathize with the family:

When he just kept talking about his son so much it was just — my interest was lost in that. I was more focused on my own son than what happened with him and his son. I’m not trying to insult the president, but it just didn’t seem that appropriate to spend that much time on his own son.

Slain Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum’s sister Roice noted that Biden’s words did not comfort the family — especially her brother’s wife ,who was pregnant with his child.

“My dad and I did not want to speak to him. You cannot kneel on our flag and pretend you care about our troops,” she said. “You can’t f— up as bad as he did and say you’re sorry. This did not need to happen, and every life is on his hands.”

Roice said her sister-in-law was also frustrated by the president checking his watch and speaking about his own son. Schmitz also said he was agitated by the president checking his watch.

Thousands of Migrants Converge Under Texas Bridge, Posing New Challenge for Biden

Published

By

Thousands of migrants have converged under the bridge that connects Del Rio, Texas, and Mexico’s Ciudad Acuña, creating a makeshift camp with few basic services in intense heat in the latest border emergency facing President Joe Biden.

Del Rio Mayor Bruno Lozano said, as of early Thursday evening, 10,503 migrants were under the Del Rio International Bridge, up from 8,200 in the morning.

Food and water has been scarce, around 20 migrants told Reuters, and temperatures have risen to around 99 Fahrenheit (37 Celsius). Reuters witnessed hundreds of migrants wading through the Rio Grande river and back into Mexico to stock up on essentials they say they are not receiving on the American side.

receiving on the American side.

The migrants are mostly Haitians, with Cubans, Venezuelans, and Nicaraguans also present.

The squalid conditions are reflective of the humanitarian challenge facing Biden as border arrests hover around 20-year highs. U.S. authorities arrested more than 195,000 migrants at the Mexican border in August, according to government data released Wednesday.

Ernesto, a 31-year-old Haitian migrant, slipped back into Mexico on Thursday to buy water and food – for the fourth time, he said, since arriving in the United States on Monday morning. Ernesto, who declined to give his surname to protect his identity, said he and his 3-year-old daughter had not been fed at the camp, where migrants are jostling for shade.

Sometimes, he said, he runs to avoid Mexican migration officials but is usually not bothered by them.

“But now money is running out,” he added.

Migrants showed Reuters tickets with numbers they had received from U.S. Border Patrol. Several said other migrants told them they could be stuck at the camp for up to five days.

Border Patrol said in a statement it was increasing staffing in Del Rio to facilitate a “safe, humane and orderly process.” Drinking water, towels, and portable toilets have been provided, the statement added, while migrants wait to be transported to facilities.

Biden, a Democrat who took office in January, has rolled back many of the hardline immigration measures of his Republican predecessor, former President Donald Trump.

But he has been caught between pro-migrant groups and some Democrats who have criticized him for not doing more to help migrants, and opponents who say his policies have encouraged illegal immigration.

Del Rio is in Val Verde County, which voted for Trump in 2020. Some residents in this sprawling, bilingual border town say they feel abandoned by the federal government on border security.

“Are they doing anything to stop them from coming?” one woman said while she looked down at the encampment while driving over the bridge.

Carlos, a 27-year-old Venezuelan who said he left his home after graduating university in July, said he thought the camp had doubled in size since he arrived Tuesday. Carlos, who declined to give his full name, said he had only $10 left, and there were 400 families ahead of him in the queue for processing.

Both migrants and Mexican officials said many more people are expected in coming days. Some told Reuters they had chosen to cross here because the river is shallow and they felt there was comparatively less cartel activity.

Jeff Jeune, a 27-year-old Haitian who was reselling water bottles for a 3 peso (15 cents) profit, said he and his young family were exhausted, hungry and sleeping on the ground. He fretted about his kids falling ill in the makeshift camp.

“My 10-year-old asks: ‘When are we leaving?’ He’s always asking that.”

[VIDEO] Tucker: This Biden policy means many more young Americans will die

The pictures from the southern border are shocking, they’re also real, so they can’t be ignored. In the coming days, you’ll hear what’s happening at the border described as a humanitarian crisis. That means the migrants are suffering and they definitely are suffering and that’s sad. But what’s sadder is that Americans are suffering too. Open borders have caused a deadly crisis among the very people our government supposedly exists to protect. 

Close to 100,000 Americans have died of drug overdoses in the last year. These are not 85-year-olds with emphysema in nursing homes. These are kids on your street, young people in the prime of life, our country’s future, the next generation. And they are dead now, mostly because of fentanyl that came up through Mexico.

So open borders means much more of this poison in your neighborhood, killing our children. Statistics released this week show that as of the end of July, fentanyl seizures at the southern border are more than double what they were for all of last year. Joe Biden did that. Open borders mean many more young Americans will die. Again, Joe Biden did that.
