Biden Border Crisis Wreaking Havoc Throughout Western Hemisphere

Border

AMAC Exclusive – By Shane Harris

Earlier this week, a United Nations study officially labeled the border between the United States and Mexico as the deadliest land route in the world, the latest evidence of just how dire the situation is at the country’s southern border. But even the harrowing number of individuals – many of them children – who have died trying to enter the United States illegally doesn’t fully capture the tragic consequences of the rapidly worsening border crisis. America’s border disaster does not only impact the United States; it has ripple effects throughout the hemisphere.

According to data from the Missing Migrants Project, an initiative run by the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration, at least 1,238 people died on migration routes in the Americas in 2021, including 728 on the U.S.-Mexico border crossing. In 2022, the crisis only appears to be getting worse. In the latest shocking example of the consequences of mass illegal migration, dozens of migrants were found dead in the back of a tractor-trailer outside San Antonio, roasted alive. The incident was the single deadliest incident related to a smuggling migration inside the United States.

Such a dramatic increase in deaths is hardly unexpected given the unprecedented levels of illegal immigration since Joe Biden took office. According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol statistics, there were 239,416 land encounters at the U.S.-Mexico border in May of this year alone, a 25% increase over May of 2021 and a staggering 40% increase over May of 2019. Every other month this year has shown a similar trend over past years.

The record-breaking influx has overwhelmed law enforcement and border officials, particularly following the Supreme Court’s ruling last week that the Biden administration can proceed with ending the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy, which forced migrants to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims were processed. Justice Samuel Alito, writing for the minority, highlighted how the Biden administration’s decision to end Remain in Mexico poses a dire threat to both migrants and American citizens amid the ongoing border crisis, arguing that “Due to the huge numbers of aliens who attempt to enter illegally from Mexico, DHS does not have the capacity to detain all inadmissible aliens encountered at the border, and no one suggests that DHS must do the impossible.” The Court’s decision, Alito writes, will allow the Biden DHS to “release into this country untold numbers of aliens who are very likely to be removed if they show up for their removal hearings.” (Which is why they generally don’t show up.)

At the same time, the Biden administration has moved to end Title 42, which allows Border Patrol agents to swiftly expel migrants trying to enter the country illegally, rather than requiring that they be held in processing centers in the United States. Combined with Biden’s promise to roll back Trump’s immigration policies during his presidential campaign in 2020, Biden’s approach to immigration has only further encouraged more migrants to make the risky journey north and try their luck at crossing into the country illegally.

Even those who do make it alive often face dangerous conditions as they pay thousands of dollars to drug cartels and human smuggling rings for passage to the United States. While the number of deaths along migration routes is an easier number to capture, an untold number of rapes, beatings, and other horrific crimes also occur. In one harrowing story told by an Arizona sheriff, a woman carried a bag of “Plan B” pills with her across the border because she knew she would be raped multiple times.

At the same time, increased smuggling operations have emboldened criminal enterprises in Latin American countries, destabilizing already precarious and often corrupt governments. Gangs like MS-13 have found a major source of income from smuggling people across the border and have found new life after former President Donald Trump made targeting their operations a central component of his foreign policy in the Western Hemisphere.

The most deadly effects of Biden’s border crisis may occur within the United States, however. Along with the wave of illegal migrants has come an avalanche of illegal drugs, including fentanyl, which contributed in large part to the record 107,000 Americans who died of overdoses last year. In California, two smugglers were caught with 150,000 fentanyl pills – enough to kill at least that many people. (They were released after just a few days in prison thanks to California’s liberal bail laws.) In American communities large and small throughout the country, the effects of the disaster at the U.S.-Mexico border are being felt in very real ways, destroying lives and tearing families apart.

Despite all of this, the mainstream media, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Congressional Democrats have by and large ignored the border altogether, apparently convinced that they can get away with simply pretending the issue doesn’t exist. For the countless people who are suffering as a result of their policies, however, the depths of this crisis are all too clear.

The Biden Administration’s policies are so evil to the welfare of the United States that the drug lords, human and sex traders, and other depraved criminals are having a field day. I can’t listen to Biden’s chronic lying, without becoming extremely emotionally upset. Biden seems to not have even the slightest bit of decency and character. Why the Republicans haven’t started the process of impeaching Biden is shameful. They don’t need to delay any longer. At least start the process — give the American people some shred of justice.

Born in Mercedes, Texas almost 65 years ago, I grew up on the Mexican border in the Rio Grande Valley. Weslaco was a good place to live through the summer of 1975 when I started college in Austin and through the mid-80s when I still had family there. The drug cartels have ruined the economy on both sides of the border, by terrorizing migrants to pay large fees to get to the border and forcing many to serve as drug mules. Thia is on top of years of being constant threat to law enforcement, public officials and law abiding folks in the the US counties in Texas on the border as well as across the Rio Grande in Mexico. The poorest people on both sides of the border have suffered the most of all through all of this, but Biden has made everything much worse since his inauguration. He should be ashamed for ignoring this horrible and dangerous situation.

This situation was foreseeable in 1990, not long after President Reagan, in what he thought was an accommodation with the Democratic leadership at the time, whereby he would grant amnesty for 25 million illegal aliens in exchange for Congress finally overhauling immigration laws to put a stop to the swarm of invaders coming from south of the border, actually signed the amnesty bill and those people were free to remain in he U.S. In control of Congress, chuckling up their sleeves, the Democrats then pointedly ignored their part of the bargain and resumed characterizing the president as just another old Hollywood fool. Left in the trash was the Amereican people, as is the case in this era.

How long is get going to take this country to realize that Democrats DO NOT CARE about the people they exploit !!!!! These Democrat leaders think they are GOD and are only out to gain and keep their power over everyone else !!!! How many suffer and die is irrelevant to them as long as enough folks keep voting for them or using cheating methods to pull themselves over the end zone !!!! AMERICA has to wake up and just STOP voting for these power addicted politicians !!!! If enough people kick them to the curb, Democrats won’t ever gain power again and that will save our Republic the democratic way !!!!

Nothing new here. The United Nations report is stating the obvious. No nation can survive when it refuses to defend its borders from what amounts to a mass invasion.

The credits at the end of the 1981 movie BORDERLINE starring Charles Bronson stated that –

In 1979, more than one million undocumented aliens were apprehended crossing the border into The United States. It is estimated more than twice that number of undocumented aliens successfully enter this country every year.

However, over two million escaped detection, weren’t caught and were able to assimilate into the North American society undetected.”

That was 43 years ago folks! According to those numbers, that would put it around 120-Million who have entered since 1979, not even to mention before then!!!

 Joe Biden took an oath to Protect and Defend these United States. As chief executive it is his job to enforce American Laws and not just the ones he agrees with. Joe does not have the authority to legislate. Executive orders to revers immigration laws passed by Congress he disagrees with are not legal!

Illegal immigration is very unpopular with the majority of the American electorate and contrary to US law. Even though the Republicans lack a majority in the House and Senate, until November, they should attempt to pass legislation to stop illegal immigration dead in its tracks! Could the Democrat majority afford to vote no when they are facing disaster in November?

Also, Joe Biden must be impeached. He is mentally and morally unfit to occupy the office of President and is a Clear and Present Danger to these United States.

The home of EVERY politician refusing to stop this.
We need semis to haul them out of our states and to those locations.
Just proceed to conservative areas. The commies are flooding these criminal invaders into our areas.

Don’t worry. Our tax dollars have paid for their welfare since 1980. barack the muslim puke stole $787 Billion out of our Medicare to take care of their ‘health’ needs. (Of course, Americans are now being told our care is going to be cut off.)
You know our tax dollars are being stolen for that welfare.
