BP Arrests Twice as Many Criminal Aliens in Six Months than All of Last Year

As the southern border crisis worsens, the latest U.S. Border Patrol figures show the agency has arrested more than twice as many criminal migrants in the first six months of fiscal year 2021 than it did in all of 2020. The fiscal year runs from October 1 to September 30 and the overwhelmed frontline agency is getting slammed with an unprecedented influx of illegal immigrants as the Biden administration extends the welcome matt. Open border groups and their allies in the administration like to portray the migrants as impoverished victims of Latin American violence desperate for a better life in the melting pot to the north. . .

Biden Shrinks, Gives in to Radical Left on Refugee Policy

If there was any doubt remaining that President Joe Biden would be pushed to the far left by his party’s radicals, that doubt has been erased.

Biden announced on Friday that he would keep in place this year’s cap on the number of refugees allowed into the country, which was put in place by former President Donald Trump before he left office, and he was scorched by leftist lawmakers.

What did Biden do? He buckled to the pressure after having decided to do one sensible thing since taking office in January. . .

AZ Gov Blasts Biden Admin on Border Patrol Fail: 'Needs to Get Its Head Out of the Sand'

This governor is breathing fire.

In a somewhat rare display of bravado, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued a brazen statement following Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s decision to not take custody of 17 illegal immigrants identified by the Arizona Department of Public Safety. . .

Biden, Not Trump, Driving Border Crisis

Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas summed up our border crisis in a statement he released March 16: "We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years."

According to The Wall Street Journal, Border Patrol agents made about 75,000 arrests of migrants crossing illegally in January.

And, the Journal reports, "the government is seeing more children arriving each day than ever before, with an average of 523 children taken into custody by Border Patrol agents each day over the last three weeks" . . .

Arizona Sheriff: Thanks to Biden, Mexican Smugglers Now Have Their Own High-Speed Roads in America

COMMENTARY

Roads across the southwestern United States are becoming drug-trafficking highways, according to an Arizona sheriff.

After President Joe Biden’s executive order in January halting construction of the southern border wall, workers “just built roads for the cartels,” Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels told The Washington Times.

Throughout the Trump administration, alongside the border wall itself, high-speed roads were built for use by the Border Patrol to better police America’s southern border. . .

COVID Migrants Get a Pass and Head Into U.S

The U.S.-Mexico border remains officially closed to non-essential traffic. But that’s not stopping asylum seekers from pushing on and, in some cases, bringing COVID-19 with them.

In the face of federal and state efforts to contain COVID, migrants crossing into Texas are testing positive for the virus, and continuing their travels into the U.S. While the Biden administration says it is handling the surging numbers, a Democrat congressman sees deteriorating conditions in his border district.

“[The administration is] only listening to the immigration activists, and they’re not listening to the folks on the border,” Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, complained Wednesday. The same day, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) tweeted, “The Biden administration is recklessly releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants who have COVID into Texas communities.”. .

COMMENTARY : Humiliating Leak Shows Biden's DHS Chief Admit Trump Was Right, Suggest Restarting Border Wall: Report

In a humiliating rebuke to President Joe Biden, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas reportedly told employees he’s considering restarting wall construction as the Democrats’ border apocalypse metastasizes out of control.

In so doing, Mayorkas — a Biden appointee — tacitly admitted that former President Donald Trump was right when he said that walls work and Biden was wrong when he abruptly halted construction. . .

Commentary: GOP Demands Answers as Report of Terror Suspects Arrested at Border Mysteriously Disappears

If there’s an innocent explanation, Republicans would love to hear it.

A news release issued Monday by Customs and Border Security about the arrest of terror suspects along the southern border brimmed with brio about agents’ fulfilling their mission of protecting the American people from alien threats entering the country illegally.

By Tuesday, the release had been disappeared — and Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee want to know why. . .

 

Biden’s Border Crisis 101: How this Administration’s Policies Created a Self-Inflicted Crisis

Since Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election, migrants have been flooding to the border in hopes of taking advantage of his immigration policy promises. The President has taken a sharp turn away from the approach of his predecessor. Instead of instituting policies that deter illegal immigration, this administration is posting a giant welcome sign. And, unfortunately for the American public, it’s working.

 

We are only one-third of the way through FY2021, yet the southern border is already experiencing record-breaking apprehension totals.[1] Typically, the bulk of border apprehensions occur during the warmer months of May through June. But so far this year, the southern border is seeing apprehension figures that are far higher than is typically seen during the “busy season.”[2] At this rate, the United States is on track to make the immigration crisis of FY2019 look relatively mild. . .
