The claim that President Joe Biden’s Administration has made that the southern border crisis is a summer problem is turning out to be completely false. The hysteria is partly gone now that there are two possible wars on the forefront of attention, China invading Taiwan and Russia invading Ukraine, that people seem to have forgotten that Vice President Kamala Harris was put in charge of the southern border toward the beginning of Biden’s presidency.
The numbers from the border have been released from December 2021, and it’s not good. There was an increase from November 2021, which means Biden has done anything positive for illegal aliens crossing the border.
United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said, “The number of unique individuals encountered in December 2021 was 135,040, a 5 percent increase in the number of unique individuals encountered the prior month. In total, there were 178,840 encounters along the Southwest land border in December, a 2 percent increase compared to November.”
As the Daily Wire noted, the December 2021 numbers were more than 2020, 2019, and 2018 combined, which added 175,353.
It is an absolute disaster by every stretch of the imagination. Take the attention away from Biden for a couple of minutes and blame Harris. That’s who is ultimately responsible for border security. Everyone knew that it would be a disaster then, and we know that it’s a disaster now.
Mark Morgan, a former acting CBP commissioner, said, “More than a year ago, even as Joe Biden was preparing to roll back President Donald Trump’s effective border security policies, he claimed he did not want to end up with ‘two million people on our border.’”
Morgan noted that it’d been a year, and there’s no doubt that Biden failed by American’s measure as well as his own.
The hypocrisy should be called out and addressed at every level of Biden’s Administration.
Morgan added that the 2 million illegal alien mark in 12 months doesn’t include the number of people who weren’t encountered. That number is estimated to be 600,000. That’s 600,000 people who are entirely unknown to the border patrol, Biden Administration, and the American citizens who entered the US undetected or not apprehended.
Morgan said that the “turn-backs” gave up and returned to their country of origin. That number was estimated at 400,000. Morgan said, “it’s the worst 12 months for any president when it comes to border security.”
Biden’s decision affected the crime rate, jobs, wages, resources, government social programs, and an unstable environment. That’s if you don’t want to get into election fraud. Either way, Biden is responsible for beginning the downfall, and it’s not just speculation. These are complex numbers with real-world consequences behind them.
