President Biden signed executive orders ending the construction of the border wall and strengthening Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) on his first afternoon in office. Biden’s handlers couldn’t wait to begin undoing President Trump’s efforts to secure the border.
It’s truly stunning how quickly Biden was able to make the situation at the border worse than it’s ever been. Many have theorized that was the plan. Democrats have been known to deliberately create problems that they then hope to be able to take credit for fixing. It’s a flawed strategy that rarely works out, but bless their hearts, they keep trying.
Of course, Team Biden has yet to meet a problem it couldn’t make exponentially worse, and the border crisis remains Exhibit A in support of that claim.
Here’s a fact the Biden administration would sure like to bury — 7,000 illegal aliens are reportedly entering the U.S. on a daily basis.
House Republicans have been putting a little pressure on Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, but the guy still has a job. It's frustrating that more Republicans don’t hammer Democrats on the border. It’s an issue that should be getting daily attention from anyone in the GOP who wants to be serious about the future of the country.
Here are some more disturbing numbers: Border Patrol arrested a whopping 12,028 criminal illegals in Fiscal Year (FY) 2022, and the criminals keep coming. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) statistics on criminal illegals apprehended FY2023 to date (last updated Aug. 16) is 10,810 criminal illegals. There was also a 600% spike in potential “national security risk” migrants (i.e. potential terrorists) apprehended in FY2022, a total of 25,627 individuals — hence the Border Patrol Union is warning that thousands of terrorists could be entering the U.S. illegally.
With a sympathetic president in the Oval Office, the open borders crowd has created a full-blown national security crisis. This is something that most Democrats continue to pretend isn’t happening.
More than 100 suspected terrorists have been arrested at the U.S. southern border since President Joe Biden took office. It is estimated two million “gotaways” have crossed into the U.S. undetected. In May, an Afghan national on the terror watch list was arrested in San Diego.
In addition to the national security crisis, Joe Biden’s humanitarian border crisis continues. The administration has never had any coherent plan to deal with people who are trying to migrate here legally, either. The Biden Democrats’ failure on border policy is utterly tragic and dangerous to any innocent players involved.
