Since his first day in office, President Biden and his Administration have issued a series of executive orders and actions that have signaled to the world the southwest border is open and illegal immigration will have little, if any, consequence.
The facts reveal a serious crisis at the border. Just today, U.S. Customs and Border Protection released their operational update for March 2021, showing CBP encountered more than 172,000 illegal immigrants at the southwest border in March alone. This is an increase of 71% since last month and an increase of nearly 400% compared to March 2020.
Our nation is on track to have the worst border crisis in 20 years and facilities are being pushed to the brink during a pandemic. Now, human smugglers are taking advantage of and profiting from this Administration’s open borders agenda and families and children are arriving in droves.
Below are what migrants are saying about the Biden Border Crisis.
CBP today announced nearly 19,000 unaccompanied migrant children were detained at the U.S.-Mexico border in March – an increase of 486% compared to March 2020. The Biden Administration’s immigration policies have resulted in a humanitarian crisis and thousands of children’s lives are now being put at risk.
When a South American migrant was asked if President Joe Biden’s presidency was the reason he and his family were making the dangerous journey to the U.S. border, he told ABC News:
The Biden Administration’s refusal to implement deterrent-focused policies will only exacerbate the unfolding crisis and encourage more to come illegally. His Administration must be held accountable.
House Oversight Republicans have repeatedly called on the Biden Administration to provide its plan to address the crisis, but the administration has refused to do so. House Oversight Republicans have also repeatedly called on Democrats to hold a hearing to examine the crisis, but they have refused.
When will Democrats act to address Biden’s Border Crisis?
