Ever since changing the immigration policies, stopping the border wall construction (only to resume it), and cutting the funding for Border Patrol, the US has been flooded with illegal aliens. President Biden has been rolling out the red carpet for these illegals and making it not only easier for them to stay, but even going so far as to try to expedite the process of making them Americans.
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) recently shared with Breitbart News the figures on illegal immigration in the country, and the numbers are staggering. With nearly 87,000 illegal immigrants successfully getting into the country in October, Biden has allowed 6,200 of them into the country per day. What’s even worse about this figure is that this only represents the amount the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) knows about.
This means thousands more have broken in undetected. Given the human trafficking, narcotics smuggling, and potential terrorists that are coming though, this should give Americans a huge cause for alarm. Especially when 68,000 snuck through over the last two fiscal years, who happened to have criminal records. This indicates that many of the criminal illegal aliens are also avoiding apprehension.
FAIR President Dan Stein provided a statement about these figures. “Agents have reason to believe those who have criminal records or are on the terror watch list are among those sneaking through. The primary responsibility of the federal government is to protect Americans and our interests. President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas have knowingly, willfully, and consistently violated that responsibility. We have never seen such numbers in our history, and the Biden administration’s open-borders policies are solely to blame.”
Their lack of action is directly putting Americans at risk. While we are a nation of immigrants, things have changed. We have laws about immigration, just like we have laws about voting, getting firearms, or operating a motor vehicle. Obeying these laws keeps the country going and keeps the American dream alive. Without adherence to our laws, the country would collapse faster than Afghanistan.
With figures of Biden’s “catch-and-release” program from February 2021 to August 2022 coming to light, it turns out that he has allowed nearly 1.35 million border crossers and illegal aliens to remain in American communities after previously apprehending them. The figure for those released into the heartland of America remains suspiciously unannounced.
“These are numbers the American people have a right to see within what was once a traditional time window, and we are glad to assist,” Stein added. “The Biden administration cannot continue to cover up what is happening by waiting until after business hours in the second half of the following month to release its data.” This wait-and-see idea behind giving the American people the tools to know what is going on in our country is something that we cannot do.
With these kinds of known figures and no way to put a good estimate on the unknown numbers sneaking across, the country is at a crossroads. We cannot keep taking in the illegals and letting them stay, and it’s cost prohibitive to send them back home. Especially when there is no guarantee they will stay there.
There needs to be a big change in how we keep the country safe, and it is clear that President Biden doesn’t want to be bothered doing it. Instead, he just wants to stay in the White House, be an embarrassment for the US on the global stage, and weaken the country beyond repair. What’s next? Is he going to try to let illegals vote in all elections?
