Over the past two years, the Democrats have spent the majority of their time criticizing former President Donald Trump and many of his policies. Thanks to Joe Biden, Trump, and his supporters are often portrayed as being extremists, having ties with Nazism, and are nothing more than domestic terrorists. While the Democrats target Trump, they remain extremely silent on the subject of the Southern border. Again, thanks to Biden and his sweeping executive orders, the border has seen a massive influx of migrants that exceeds 2 million people. It should be noted that the Department of Homeland Security, under the Biden administration, has welcomed more migrants at the border than there are in 15 states.
On Friday, the Southwest Land Border Encounters Report revealed that more than 2 million migrants were apprehended at the border. The exact number – 2,206,436. Setting a record the previous record, set in 2021, Biden’s first year in office, shows an increase of 547,230 apprehensions. That was between October 1, 2021, to September 20, 2022. But remember, those are apprehensions, this doesn’t include the number of migrants who were successful in their journey to enter America illegally.
Former Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Chief Mark Morgan discussed the staggering numbers during a visit to the Heritage Foundation. He said, “We have simply never seen these numbers before in our history, and the Biden open-borders policies are the reason. As bad as it has gotten, things will only get worse, and I fear what major catastrophe could come next,”
Thomas Homan, the former Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director, also attended the event, demanding no more excuses from the government. “The time for excuses is over—the next Congress needs to take actual steps to hold this administration accountable for the chaos and carnage they have unleashed on our southwest border. This is a shameful episode in our history, and the ones who are suffering are not the elites in their gated and secured Beltway communities. It’s the Border Patrol agents being overwhelmed on a daily basis. It’s the families who have been ripped apart, losing a loved one to fentanyl or other drugs. And it’s the migrants themselves who are worthless to the cartels once they’ve been paid. The next Congress better do something about it..”
To make it worse, the Biden administration has consistently struggled to handle all the foreign migrants. They exceed the resident population of Vermont, Alaska, South Dakota, Delaware, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, West Virginia, Idaho, New Mexico, North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Hawaii, and Nebraska. Just looking between February 2021 to August 2022, the Biden administration simply released 1.35 million migrants into the United States. The GOP has promised to quickly address the issue if they regain control during the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.
