Here’s another episode of “The Biden Border Crisis That Never Ends”:
A source from U.S. Customs and Border Protection indicated that Border Patrol officers have arrested more than one million illegal immigrants in the southwest areas of the country in the Fiscal Year 2022, which began in October. This goal was apparently met on Thursday, according to the source. The source claimed that about 8,000 migrants were apprehended this week, breaking the one-day record for encounters with migrants at the southwest border with Mexico. Seven out of ten people apprehended since October 1 have reportedly been adult singles.
The source stated that the limited removal routes are causing overcrowding in Border Patrol processing facilities. In the last week, on multiple occasions, the agency was confronted by large numbers of migrants, some numbering more than 200 people. On Sunday, a small group of 187 crossed over the Rio Grande near Eagle Pass and then quickly surrendered.
Are they wearing “Biden, Please Let Us In!” T-shirts? If that's “the “good news,” the negative news is, what happened to the more than a million illegals and the others who came before them? What will happen going forward?
Any person who pays attention to the Biden Border Crisis(TM) is likely to be shocked by even a few of these figures. In the latter part of March, Border Patrol chief Raul Ortiz stated to CNN that his organization is preparing to apprehend up to 8,000 illegals per day, more than double the daily count of the surge in 2019 during former President Donald Trump’s reign. Although Border Patrol at times has been able to apprehend 8,000 illegals every day, this hasn't been the norm. Until now.
CNN New Day co-anchor Brianna Keilar responded to the numbers by admitting, “That's a huge number!” It is true, Brianna, it is an enormous number. And now, get back to spinning to escape the border issue.
What then? What happens next?
The source stated that the limited removal options are leading to large numbers of released migrants. The only tool that is useful in the emergency is the Trump-era health policy Title 42 COVID-19 CDC order, which can swiftly remove relevant immigrants from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador with minimal administrative processing.
“Shockingly,” as reported by Fox News, the Biden Administration announced on Friday that it will end Title 42 by the end of the month, despite constant warnings of massive illegal border crossings in the months ahead. The policy has been utilized by both the Trump and Biden administrations to swiftly expel unlawful immigrants from the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic. What a convenient time to eliminate the COVID-19 virus.
Another growing issue is the increasing number of “migrants” from Cuba. In February, around 16,550 Cubans were detained on the southwest border, a rise of more than 300 percent when compared with February 20, 2021. Additionally, fewer than 100 percent of the 16,550 Cubans who were detained in February were removed from the country, as per the Remain in Mexico program.
If you're interested in these issues–which should interest all Americans–you may recall that Biden officially shut down the Remain in Mexico program in June 2021 following its suspension at the start of this year. In accordance with a judge’s order, the administration reinstated the program in early January of 2022 with “new protocols.”
According to the Washington Post in February 2022, the proposed Biden variant of “Remain in Mexico” bears no resemblance to the Trump version.
The main distinction under Biden is the number of returns. Biden's administration was required to reinstate the Migration Protection Protocols (MPP) “in good faith;” however, the court didn't state minimums for the daily number. So far, the Department of Homeland Security has returned around 400 MPP participants, as per the most recent United Nations figures, equivalent to approximately seven asylum seekers a day across all borders–compared to 300 to 400 people being returned every day during the summer of 2019.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R), whose lawsuit led to Biden resuming the MPP, declared the low figures “outrageous” in a late-January tweet. “Outrageous. I won in district court, which forces Biden to reinstate Remain-in-Mexico. After that, I won another time after the feds appealed. Biden must use MPP to return illegals to Mexico. He's in violation of the Court's ruling, and I will not allow it to stand.”
It's not just that it's still there, but it's actually getting worse each day, and it will continue to get worse.
Let's be honest. The fix was in place before Day One of the Biden Administration. Biden ran on it. By handing out voter-identification cards–without images, of course–to illegal immigrants as they continue to pour across the border and into the United States, there's not much more that the White House can do as it continues to alter the population makeup of America.
According to the Center for Immigration Studies in July 2021, only six months after the Biden presidency began, the country saw an enormous drop in the proportion of illegals who were deported in Fiscal Year 2021. For FY 2019 in contrast, 72.2 percent of outcomes were removal orders, while the proportion of the results in which the person was allowed to remain was just 27.8 percent. All of this shouldn't shock anyone who has been following the Biden Administration's implementation of their anti-enforcement campaign.
This was not just in the past; it is still true today. Illegal border crossings are, in 2022, on their way to breaking all-time records.
