Biden isn’t even trying to stop illegal immigration anymore.
He refuses to take the steps necessary to fix the problem.
And now the immigration crisis is reaching a disaster point.
Controlling the flow of immigration is absolutely necessary to run a stable society, regardless of what the Left thinks.
You don’t have to be “anti-immigration” to think that there have to be reasonable limits, and that immigration has to happen through legal channels.
But the Left has completely given up on that idea. They want as much immigration as possible, and they want it to happen illegally.
And with Joe Biden in the White House, it seems that they are getting their way.
According to the New York Times, “Apprehensions of migrants crossing the southwestern border were down for the second month in a row in July, but the number in just the first 10 months of the government’s fiscal year already exceeds the total during the previous year, setting a record, according to data released on Monday.”
Of course, the word “apprehensions” in this context is a bit squirrely, as the “catch-and-release” program means that illegal border crossers are released just as soon as they are apprehended.
Either way, the fact that so many are being apprehended almost certainly means that the number of people who are actually crossing the border is far larger.
The article continues, “By the end of June, border officials apprehended people more than 1.74 million times, breaking the record from the total number during the government’s 2021 fiscal year of more than 1.73 million, which at the time was the highest number of illegal crossings recorded since at least 1960. The government’s fiscal year ends Sept. 30, and at this rate, the total number of crossings for the year is likely to exceed two million.”
This is an alarming amount of illegal border crossings, and if America were led by a president who was even mildly interested in solving the country’s problems, he would certainly be taking decisive action to fix it.
But sadly, America does not have a president like that. America is stuck with Joe Biden, who doesn’t have a clue how to run the country, and is just along for the ride.
The New York Times article even admits that the Biden administration is releasing illegal border crossers that they have apprehended, with no real way of compelling them to show up for their court date.
“While about half of the migrants arrested on the southwestern border have been turned away under the public health order, the administration has released hundreds of thousands of migrants into the country to face removal proceedings. These immigrants are given temporary permission to stay because the government cannot immediately remove them – sometimes because the United States lacks diplomatic relations with the countries they came from, and thus cannot repatriate them, or there is not enough space to detain them.”
And thus, we are left with an immigration crisis that is bubbling over, and an administration that has zero interest in actually dealing with it.
