With the Title 42 policy expected to end in May, border agents will no longer have the power to turn away illegal migrants due to a public health emergency. Put in place back during the Trump administration. The now-Biden administration has sought to do away with policy while still spending billions of dollars on fighting COVID-19, what they believe to be a public health emergency. Still, as experts have warned about the influx of migrants in the coming months, Tom Homan, former Acting ICE Director, admitted that not only is he worried about the border but that the Biden administration is “actively facilitating cross border crime.”
Appearing on Fox News, as can be seen in the video below, Homan noted, “It’s the first administration that I’ve seen in my lifetime that’s actively facilitating cross border crime. And look, people attacked me all the time, the Trump administration, ‘how inhumane were you guys?’ Let me tell you something when President Trump got immigration at a 40-year low. The border was secure. How many women weren’t sexually assaulted? Children didn’t die. How many migrants didn’t drown in the river? How many pounds of fentanyl didn’t get into the country that caused deaths from a US citizen overdosing? President Trump’s policies not only secured the border, it saved lives. A secure border saves lives.”
Back in January, before the Title 42 policy had become a topic of debate, Republican Representative Kat Cammack criticized the Biden administration for lack of accountability when it came to the border. She said, “This is the ‘Where’s Waldo?’ administration. No one can be found. No one wants to take responsibility.
You have a border czar in VP Harris, who has done close to nothing to stem the flow. You’ve got Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas, who I have personally questioned three times in congressional hearings, who has said that he thinks they’re doing a marvelous job, that the border is secure. Of course, the data that you just showed points to the fact that, no, the border is not secure. And you cannot have a secure nation unless you have secure borders. And if you don’t have secure borders, you’re not a safe, sovereign nation.”
The Republican also slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “She refuses to acknowledge there is a border crisis happening. Her colleagues — they don’t go to the border because they don’t want to see what we all know because it flies in the face of their narrative. Now when we take the House, and by we, I mean the GOP and Republicans, when we rake the House back in November, we will have a plan ready to go come January when the 118th Congress starts. And I think that’s important because we have said that’s necessary to win in the midterms.”
But among all the people Rep. Cammack held responsible, she ripped into President Biden the most, labeling him “trafficker-in-chief.”
