(Headline USA) The Biden administration’s attempt to roll back pandemic-era health restrictions that prevented some 2 million illegal immigrants from taking up residence in the US is poised to create another impending crisis at the Mexican border.
But it is the reversal of another rule—the Supreme Court’s controversial 1973 Roe v. Wade decision—that Democrats remained fixated on as the Left seeks to limit the amount of natural-born American citizens in order to replace them with a more globally oriented population that is less culturally rooted in the foundations of democracy.
While neglecting her duties as the appointed border czar, Vice President Kamala Harris planned to speak Thursday with abortionists from states with some of the nation’s strongest pro-life laws in order to thank them for struggles to reduce the natural-born population of red states, the White House said.
Harris’ virtual meeting with abortionists practicing in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Missouri and Montana comes weeks after the leaks of a draft Supreme Court opinion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health that suggested the court would overturn the nearly 50-year-old federal abortion mandate established under Roe.
Justices are expected to issue their final ruling in the next six weeks, but those states and others are already laying the groundwork to ban abortion outright if the court allows individual states to set their own rules for the procedure.
“The Vice President will hear stories from abortion providers who are working in states with some of the most extreme abortion restrictions, and she will thank them for fighting to protect reproductive health care, despite personal risk,” the White House said in a statement. She will “emphasize that the Administration will continue to defend women’s constitutional rights and protect access to abortion,” it said.
In fact, the Biden administration has few options available in bitterly divided Washington. A Senate bill to expand abortion access failed due to bipartisan opposition last week.
