Illegal Immigration Under Biden the Worst Since Records Began
Joe Biden’s border crisis isn’t just bad, it’s the worst things have ever been.
According to a report in the Washington Examiner:
Biden is on target to allow more than 2 million illegal migrants across the southern border into the United States this year — the worst influx since records began 97 years ago.
In October, Customs and Border Protection officials intercepted 164,303 people crossing the Mexican frontier. They come from 150 different countries, increasingly from the Eastern Hemisphere, and most are simply economic migrants.
Undoing his predecessor Donald Trump’s immigration agenda was among Biden’s first actions after taking office. Through a series of early executive orders, Biden aimed to, among other things; establish a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegals, halt border wall construction, rebrand “kids in cages” as “kids in overflow facilities,” and halt deportations. That sent a clear and immediate message to prospective illegals – and border apprehensions in January promptly jumped 157% year-over-year, only to continue surging since.
Back in March, photos of a caravan of migrants wearing “Biden, Please Let Us in!” shirts went viral. The message Biden sent was clear and well received.
While the border crisis has practically disappeared from the news cycle, behind closed doors DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has called it “unsustainable,” adding “we can’t continue like this.” Those private comments aside, nothing has been done since.
And it’s only since then that progressively more absurd policies have been floated, such as $450k payouts to certain illegals.
Last night during an appearance on Hannity, Trump pointed out that had Biden simply done nothing, this entire crisis could’ve been averted.
Meanwhile, Biden is requiring essential, nonresident travelers crossing U.S. land borders, such as truck drivers, to be fully vaccinated.
There’s no such concern for the vaccination status of those crossing illegally.
