Our southern border is a mess. How bad is it? Ever since, Joe Biden took office, we know there has been a massive spike in illegals crossing the border. We also know that criminal activity at crossing points has jumped and that illegals credit Biden as being the reason they have taken over. It’s a true crisis down there, with border apprehensions up 800% over this time last year.
American Military News reports that the number of illegals caught crossing the border has spiked — and that’s even with Joe Biden’s lax enforcement:
It was a familiar scene. Newly released data show that migrants were stopped 180,034 times across the southern border last month — nearly eight times the total during May 2020 and among the highest monthly totals in recent years.
That brought total apprehensions for the year to 711,784, nearly five times the total during the same period last year, though direct comparisons are difficult because of a policy implemented early in the COVID-19 pandemic that dramatically increased the number of people who have been caught multiple times.
In the Rio Grande Valley, numbers are even higher:
In the Rio Grande Valley, where there were 50,793 apprehensions last month — up from 3,698 in May 2020 — Border Patrol agents respond to about one fatality a week.
Biden’s lax enforcement is empowering drug cartels and sex traffickers, as well as increasing the risk of the spread of COVID-19 in communities surrounding common crossing points. It’s unclear why he would do this — but it seems to be simply to spite Donald Trump, whose policies controlled the border.
If Biden keeps doing what he’s doing, we’re not going to have much of a country left when 2024 hits. Be sure to vote in great numbers in the midterm elections. They’re perhaps more important at this point than anything else. If we take Congress, we can block Biden’s evil and irresponsible plans for America.
