The fact that two plus million more illegal aliens have the nerve to head to the U.S. southern border in 2022, expecting to get in, is infuriating to many American citizens especially those who served in the United States military.
The U.S. border officials are preparing for as many as 9,000 border arrests per day by the spring, according to two Department of Homeland Security officials, which would be significantly larger than last year’s peak and could cause a headache for the Democratic administration ahead of midterm elections.
The Biden administration’s policies lead to a record-breaking 1.7 million border arrests last fiscal year, which ended on Sept. 30. In July 2021 – the peak of last year’s rise – daily arrests averaged about 6,500, according to government statistics.
The record number of arrests caused backups of unaccompanied children in crowded border patrol stations and fueled Republican criticism of the Democratic president’s approach to border security. Biden’s predecessor, Republican President Donald Trump, made cracking down on immigration a central plank of his presidency.
The rise in migration has happened despite the Biden administration keeping in place a Trump-era order that allows U.S. authorities to rapidly expel most migrants caught at the border during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Republicans are expected to make the border a major campaign theme in the run-up to November midterm elections that will decide control of the U.S. Congress.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) spokesperson said the agency “stands ready to address any potential increase in migrant encounters,” while at the same time “managing a fair and orderly immigration system.”
Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas fielded criticism from individual border patrol agents during a visit on Wednesday to Yuma, Arizona, according to four current and former agents and an audio recording posted online by the conservative website Townhall.
Some agents have grown frustrated with Biden’s approach to enforcement and say it has hurt morale.
DHS spokesperson Marsha Espinosa said in a statement that Mayorkas “welcomes candor during these conversations, and appreciates and respects the opinions of each member of the CBP workforce.”
In Yuma, Reuters witnessed hundreds of migrants walking through a gap in the border barrier and turning themselves in to ask for asylum over the weekend. The migrants said they were from Venezuela, Cuba, and other Latin American countries, as well as farther away places.
Mark Morgan, former acting CBP commissioner responded to the news in a statement, saying:
“More than a year ago, even as Joe Biden was preparing to roll back President Donald Trump’s effective border security policies, he claimed he did not want to end up with ‘two million people on our border.’ After a year on the job, it’s undeniable that Biden has failed even by his own basic measure.”
“In 12 months, CBP recorded more than two million encounters along the southwest border, a shocking and historic number,” Morgan added. “But that number does not include an estimated 600,000 or more ‘got-aways,’ individuals who cross the border illegally but which Border Patrol is unable to detain. And then there are the ‘turn-backs,’ those who make an effort to cross the border but eventually give up and return to their country of origin.”
“Under Biden, that number was around 400,000. Under Joe Biden, more than three million people have tried to violate America’s sovereignty and illegally enter our country. This is not only the worst border crisis in American history—it’s the worst 12 months for any president when it comes to border security.” Morgan added.
This massive invasion of aliens from over 100 nations, along with the Marxism taught in schools around the USA both have to be addressed, and reversed, starting in 2025, in order for our nation to survive as the free Constitutional Republic we have enjoyed for 246 years.
