The Continuing Border Catastrophe the Biden Admin Is Hiding
Don’t be fooled by government or media propaganda—the Biden border crisis is as horrendous as ever. In fact, instead of the touted “decrease” in illegal alien crossings, former Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan reportedly found “increases in port-of-entry encounters that coincide with the rollout of” the Biden administration program used to hide illegal alien numbers, CBP One.1
I reported for PJ Media back in January on the clever trick the Biden administration is pulling with its CBP One app to let in the same number of illegals with the illusion of legitimacy. CBP One doesn’t reduce the number of illegal migrants flooding the southern U.S. border; it simply “pre-approves” those migrants so CBP and Border Patrol can claim the numbers of illegal apprehensions and crossings are down.
Now Center for Immigration Studies’ (CIS) Todd Bensman reports:
“[The Federalist, June 26] America’s beleaguered cities and towns, growing numbers of which are suffering unfunded inundation, do not care how the government let 200,000 aliens cross per month. They only care that they are here.
President Joe Biden and his top deputies are pushing shell-game accounting and the untruthful narrative that ‘non-citizen’ crossings over the U.S. southwest border have plummeted by up to ‘70 percent,’ so there’s nothing to see here, folks. Not so fast…rates of illegal entry through the brush, since a pause that came when the administration replaced Title 42, is now quickly growing.”
Bensman estimated about 215,000 illegals is the actual number for May (you can see his explanation for reaching that number at The Federalist). That’s close to the Biden border crisis high of 221,000 “non-port-of-entry brush apprehensions.” In contrast, the brush apprehension numbers for Donald Trump’s last year in office were an average of about 30,000 monthly. That’s a staggering difference.
“[I]llegal crossings of family units, unaccompanied minors, and foreign nationals from ‘recalcitrant countries’ are on a sharp upswing…I just came back from Mexico and the Border Patrol’s Del Rio Sector, which is experiencing a major surge of illegal crossings again…
Biden’s rules do not apply to families, and so their numbers are spiking from the 25,000 monthly range in January and February to 44,900 in May. Expect torrents of them going forward. There is also evidence that unaccompanied minors are flooding in at the pre-Title 42 rate of 11,000-12,000 per month because they too are exempt from the new, supposedly tough rules.”
Illegal aliens are flooding into areas of Arizona and Texas, Bensman explained. Their countries of origin include U.S. enemies or terrorist hotspots like China and Afghanistan. And there’s an unknown number of illegals evading Border Patrol altogether: “a surge of runners and got-aways is underway. Since Biden took office, some 1.7 million foreign nationals have become got-aways in total, smashing historic records. Now that number seems only to be going up.”
In fact, Fiscal Year 2023 is “projected to top 1 million got-aways.” The border crisis is worse than ever.
The number of military-age Chinese migrants is way up, in what some are warning is a covert invasion by America’s enemy the Chinese Communist Party. There are also thousands of criminals among the illegal aliens entering.
The border crisis is a hostile invasion, and the Biden administration is only covering it up as it gets steadily more disastrous.
