Uncompassionate. Unsustainable. Utter incompetence. That’s how anybody with commonsense would view the disaster on the southern border that has now spilled into cities across America, including ours.
It lacks compassion due to the horrors so many migrants face as they make the damaging trek towards america and the lives of our regulation enforcement endangered day by day. There are reviews of ladies and youngsters being raped, horrific deaths — such because the 51 migrants discovered useless in an overheated tractor-trailer, and the estimated hundreds smuggled into intercourse trafficking rings.
Most deaths, nevertheless, come from the tons of fentanyl that the DEA says is coming over the border, killing a report 100,000 individuals final yr. That’s roughly 300 individuals — or the equal of a industrial airplane crash — each week.
This disaster is unsustainable because it prices American taxpayers, who’re already battling skyrocketing costs for meals, fuel and shelter, an estimated $20 billion per yr. And in cities like ours, the mayor now desires to spend $15 million a month to house migrants in tent cities or cruise ships, putting extra stress on the town’s price range and our wallets.
It’s completely incompetent as a result of this disaster was manufactured by the Biden administration with its open border coverage and revocation of sensible options that introduced order to our southern border beneath President Donald Trump.
As an alternative of additional enjoying into Biden’s self-created catastrophe, Mayor Adams ought to be a part of us in demanding our borders be secured, “Stay in Mexico” be restored, extra judges be added to shortly differentiate asylum seekers from these with illegitimate claims and provides CBP the instruments, expertise and staffing to finish the chaos.
The one group benefitting beneath Biden’s insurance policies are the cartels which are raking in from drug and human trafficking schemes. Isn’t it about time that Biden and Adams put the American individuals earlier than them?
