The Question That No One Asks or Answers

Years ago, a preschooler used to annoy me to no end whenever I visited his parents. It wasn’t what he did, but what he said, or rather asked. Here’s a typical example of our dialogue. To get the full effect, try to imagine his question delivered in a drawn-out monotone:

“I think I’m going out on the porch for a bit,” I might say.

“Why-y-y?” he would ask.

“It’s a nice day.”


“The sun’s shining.”


“That’s what the sun does in the daytime.”


“Because,” I’d say. But even replying with that magic word designed to kill further adult-child conversation had no effect.


You get the picture. That was long ago, and while I don’t remember what was passing through my mind, I can safely guess that my thoughts were unkind.

But now? All I can say is, “Where’s that dimpled master of interrogation when we need him?”

Recently, I’ve read more articles than usual on the invasion of our Southern border. This river of illegal immigrants now includes not only people from Central and South America, but also asylum seekers from such far-flung places as China, Africa, and the Middle East, ex-Green Beret and war correspondent Michael Yon says in one report. He also warns that if worldwide food shortages occur next year, which appears likely, this storm of immigrants will turn into a tsunami.

Since Joe Biden became president, up to five million people from more than 150 countries have illegally made their way into the U.S., including nearly one million “gotaways” who slipped past enforcement officials. Most of these immigrants are seeking work and a better life, but a number of them are criminals, some are mules for the drug trade, and others are slaves of the cartels or victims of sex traffickers.

In Washington, some politicians oppose this flood of illegal immigrants. Some reporters and bloggers write about the need to crack down on border regulation, vetting immigrants and turning more of them away.

And right here is where we need that little kid and his question: “Why?” Because no one ever explains to the rest of us why we are permitting this situation in the first place.

Why does the government of the United States permit this flood of immigrants? It could close the border, if it chose to do so, in a week’s time, or less. It could simply proclaim, “Enough is enough,” and that would be the end of the whole shebang.

But it doesn’t. And as a result, the drug cartels are having a field day, fentanyl smuggled into our country is killing tens of thousands of Americans, and we’ll be paying everything from social benefits to educational costs for these intruders for decades to come, or until the money runs out.

So allow me to play that pesky boy and ask, “Why?”

And since no one replies, I’m stuck with the only answer that seems obvious: Mass immigration is a tool designed to radically change the United States of America that it will become unrecognizable.

And if that is the case, then the question becomes not why but who. Who is behind this policy?

Given our president’s declining cognitive powers, we can safely bet Joe Biden’s not the engine driving this bus. He lacks the mental wherewithal, the motive, and the brain cells to devise such a plot.

So who’s got their hands on the steering wheel? Is it White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain? Does former president Barack Obama have influence in the Oval Office? Or are Biden and his handlers passengers like the rest of us, given our tickets to ride by the World Economic Forum and some of our wealthiest billionaires?

I know. I sound like one more conspiracy nut. But here’s the difference: I lack the financial means—and probably the equipment and intelligence—to get to the root of this question. But I can still ask it. Why? Why are we allowing our border to be overrun? What’s the purpose?

And if no one can give a straight answer to that question, even a radical one, then something is very, very wrong.

    I had no idea that you are a Neuropsychologist or Neurologist, able to diagnose "cognitive decline" at a distance.

    You might also consider the fac that unless you are a Native American, all of your ancestors and you yourself are illegal immigrants too.

      Mark Callan is wrong,on many things. Yes you can see cognitive decline, especially, sadly, if you know someone in that situation. I personally think he is faking becausr he knows when his crimes are exposed,(serious crimes like treason)that his ‘condition’ will keep him out of jail, it wont. And as far as the border, it is absolutely the federsl governments job to protect our borders. Yet no one in DC does anything about it, guess it doesnt affect them. And dont evrn start me on native citizens, please, what about rhe Nordics who lived on this continent long before anyonr else. What happened to them?

        DC will begin to "care" but not for the invaders, for their own sorry selves, when these invaders are bussed by the thousands into the District and let out of the busses. Ten thousand more mouths to feed, pills to buy, cots to sleep upon, , crimes to solve, or prevent….. and the DeeCeeDenizens will wake up and rise up.

      Not quite. In fact, NOT AT ALL. The "native Americans" were not the first ones on this continent. So THEY were, per your thinking, "illegals" when THEY got here. FUrther, they came in groups from different places, and over a long period of time. So later arrivals invaded, and supplanted, earlier ones. And the Europeans that came over did so legally.

      Nice try, there…… I know all my ancestors, except the Cherokee who married into the family lineage in Minnesota Territory long before it became a state, came her in full complaince with the laws in effect at the time, nd some predated the Mayflower.
      Not to say our government have treated those already here, or even having arrived later on, nobly. Certainly not.

      But what is happening along our southern boundary is unprecedented, other than the moorish or mongol or norse hordes that overran some areas and overtook them. But even that was a very different thing than what we observe now along our boundary with Mexico. No other nation on the planet has ever had such a policy as we do now. Not even Somalia during the BlackHawk Down days.

      Actually, Mark, my ancestors were all LEGAL immigrants. By casting your presentism on the period of 1890 – 1920 (when my kin folk arrived on the east coast) you diminish any further credence in this argument.

    To get at the answer, I’m reminded of the old SNL Church Lady skit, "Could it be —??" You know the rest…

    I have been asking that question for years. You article piqued my curiosity and I did a very cursory search for the number of illegals now in the US. What I found is indeed alarming – nobody has any idea.

    Around 2010, the number commonly quoted was 11 million. Some are still quoting that number today. Current data are sparse, and reliable data are nonexistent.

    The Center for Immigration Studies and Statistica say there are 11.3 million in 2022.

    FAIR says there were 11 million in 2010 and 15.5 million in 2021.

    Brookings says there were 10.5-12 million in 2020.

    Migration Policy Institute says there were 11 million in 2019.

    A Yale study in 2018 said there 22.1 million in 2018, and KFF agrees.

    Soooo, a US House staffer told me they believe the true number could be as high as 30 million. Based on a population of 330 million, that would indicate that 9% of the people in the US are here illegally ! Think about that………almost 1 in 10.

    One thing is clear; nobody knows, or are not talking.

    I ran across an interesting read while looking: https://www.kff.org/racial-equity-and-health-policy/fact-sheet/health-coverage-of-immigrants/

    Think about the cost of health coverage. Then education. And then all the other bennies.

    I am happy I’m not alone. I have been looking for someone in a leadership to provide us with guidance. While I understand this is all God’s hands I also have never been at such a loss. The US feels like it is aimlessly wandering with no goals other than our already devastated economy.
