Democrats have backed themselves into a terrible corner with their own insanity.
They’ve created a massive crisis that they’re unable to fix.
Joe Biden smashed a huge record that’s terrifying news for Democrats.
In December President Joe Biden’s administration broke the all-time record for the number of illegal aliens encountered on the U.S.-Mexico border.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported that they had 251,487 encounters with illegal aliens last month according to figures that they released late Friday evening.
They encountered more than a quarter of a million people illegally entering America in just 31 days.
In December 2020, the final month of Donald Trump’s presidency, there were only 73,994 illegal immigrant encounters at the southern border.
Biden has managed to raise illegal immigration up 239% in the space of just two years with his open-border policies.
There have been 200,000+ illegal alien encounters per month on the southern border for the last ten months.
The Biden administration has tried to claim that they’re just trying to help by allowing unchecked immigration.
“Let’s remember, these folks are fleeing communism,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at a Sept. 20 briefing about the border crisis where she attacked Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis for flying a few immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard.
“When you think about Venezuela — what’s going on in Venezuela, when you think about what’s going on in Nicaragua, when you think about what’s going on in Cuba: They are fleeing political persecution only to be used as a political pawn by the Florida governor.”
Yet the Biden administration is creating a humanitarian crisis by allowing uncontrolled immigration to overwhelm the systems.
2.76 million illegal immigrants crossed the border in the fiscal year 2022 breaking the previous annual record by more than 1 million, according to Customs and Border Protection data.
Now according to the numbers in the first three months of fiscal year 2023 the U.S. is on track to have more than 2.87 million illegal alien encounters.
These numbers are bad news for DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who had articles of impeachment filed against him last week.
“Since day one, Secretary Mayorkas’ policies have undermined law enforcement activities at our southern border,” Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) said. “From perjuring himself before Congress about maintaining operational control of the border to the infamous ‘whip-gate’ slander against our border patrol agents, Secretary Mayorkas has proven time and time again that he is unfit to lead the Department of Homeland Security.”
“His willful actions have eroded our immigration system, undermined Border Patrol morale, and jeopardized American national security. He has violated the law and it is time for him to go,” Fallon added.
