Group Biden simply set one other file: 164,973 unlawful migrants apprehended on the border final month, the best February whole within the Homeland Safety Division’s historical past, up 63% from February 2021 and triple the February common for the Trump years.
The month’s whole was a 6.6% enhance over January — and a 350% enhance over February 2020, when Biden had simply taken workplace.
And Biden’s about to end the COVID restrictions that permit the Border Patrol ship many migrants again; officers count on a fair bigger surge as soon as that occurs.
In the meantime, the prez is slashing US Customs and Border Safety funds by $428 million, to $14.8 billion, within the omnibus invoice that’s sending tens of billions in new spending on left-wing priorities.
That’s proper: Biden is aware of the surge is about to get even worse, but he’s offering fewer assets to deal with it. This, simply weeks after bragging on this yr’s State of the Union deal with about all the things he’s completed to safe the border.
In brief, all the things he says about getting the disaster below management is simply extra Biden bulls–t.
We’ve now seen 12 straight months of encounters over 150,000, and greater than 2 million whole on Biden’s watch — to not point out the estimated 500,000 unlawful border-crossers who’ve prevented the Border Patrol and escaped into the nation.
Add within the migrants caught however covertly launched into the inside: 62,573 in January alone (greater than a 3rd of these “encountered”), with Group Joe nonetheless secretly shuttling migrants across the country.
Notably, an growing share of the migrants (over a 3rd) now aren’t even from the Southern Triangle nations that the Bidenites insist are the “root trigger” of the surge.
The truth is, the exodus started after this president took over and began undoing all the things his predecessor had completed to discourage unlawful migration. Phrase is spreading worldwide that you simply’ve received an excellent likelihood of constructing it in, so the surge will solely develop.
Sadly, say-one-thing, do-the-opposite isn’t simply Biden’s method to the border: It’s how he rolls on all the things, from inflation and hovering power costs to his “powerful” overseas coverage and dealing with COVID. His phrases are meaningless, whereas his actions vary from hopeless to downright damaging.
