I’ve written it a lot lately, but I’ll continue to say it: President Joe Biden and his administration will go down in history for creating the most dangerous southern U.S. border crisis in American history.
And the crazy part? We’re not even two full months into his presidency.
The latest notch on Biden’s belt deals with the number of illegal immigrants detained in the month of February, which set a 15-year record, which means he beat former President Barack Obama’s records, and that’s saying something.
Under Biden, border agents arrested nearly 100,000 illegals in the month of Febrary alone — and keep in mind that’s a short month. A full month would have easily cleared the 100k mark. So, quick math tells us that, on average, 3,571 illegal aliens are being detained on a daily basis as of last month.
And you know it’s gotten even worse since then. Can you imagine what the numbers will be like in the coming weeks and months? It’s going to create a situation so dangerous for America — the likes of which this country has never seen before. Mark my words.
Reuters has the story:
U.S. border agents detained nearly 100,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in February, according to two people familiar with preliminary figures, the highest arrest total for the month of February since 2006.
The figures, which have not been previously reported, show the scope of a growing surge of migrants arriving at the southwest border as U.S. President Joe Biden, a Democrat, seeks to roll back some of the restrictive policies of former President Donald Trump, a Republican.
In particular, an increasing number of children arriving at the border without a parent or legal guardian has forced U.S. officials in recent weeks to scramble for housing options and take steps to speed up their release to sponsors in the United States.
U.S. Border Patrol agents caught more than 4,500 migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in a single day on Wednesday, according to government figures shared with Reuters, a sign that illegal entries could continue to rise in March.
This all started when illegal smugglers felt confident than a Democrat would win the White House and then became even worse when they heard that Biden was rolling back virtually all of Trump’s tough border policies that kept America out of this hot mess.
Now, it’s Americans who will have to pay the price. Increased crime, stolen jobs and astronomical amounts of taxpayer funds to handle processing, transportation, legal fees, healthcare and more.
What a crappy start to a presidency, to say the least.
