The Growing Number of Asylum Seekers at Our Southern Border has Grown to Unmanageable Proportions

borderWASHINGTON, DC, Apr 19 — The Washington Examiner reports that the Biden administration will be releasing some 400 undocumented migrant families into the U.S. each and every day starting the middle of June.  The reason: because the numbers of illegals crossing the Mexican border has risen to unmanageable levels; we don’t have the capacity to hold them at the border.

This is not speculation; it’s a fact laid out in a document the newspaper obtained from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.  It states: “The number of individuals enrolled in the ICE Alternatives to Detention program has increased from 50 per day to 200 per day in March 2021.  Within 90 days, the enrollment is projected to double to 400 per day.  It is because of this unusual and compelling urgency that the Government requires the [emergency family reception sites] to meet the critical mission requirements of housing, feeding, transporting, and providing medical attention to these thousands of asylum-seeking families along the southwest border.”

The numbers of illegals crossing the southwest border is alarming, to say the least.  In the last months of the Trump Administration the numbers of interceptions of illegals at the border were about 75,000 per month.  They increased to 100,000 during the first full month after President Biden took office and in March we saw a dramatic surge as some 172,000 were intercepted.  It is said to be the highest monthly numbers in 15 years.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that included in the March numbers were some 18,890 unaccompanied children, 100% more than were counted in February.

The question is, where will these families go once they are released, and the answer is that no one seems to know.  Most likely, they will find their way to so-called sanctuary cities.

As the Examiner noted in its coverage of this breaking story: “While the Biden administration deflects criticism over the border crisis, Republicans, and even many Democrats, are attributing the growing problems to Biden’s immigration initiatives, which, thus far, have reversed many of former President Donald Trump’s deterrent policies.”

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador also puts the blame on the Biden administration.  As he put it: “Expectations were created that with the government of President Biden, there would be a better treatment of migrants. And this has caused Central American migrants, and also from our country, wanting to cross the border thinking that it is easier to do so.”

The border is an EMERGENCY SITUATION! Something needs to take place immediately about
turning people away from “free entry” into our country! Come on someone, answer this need.
It’s too late but we need still need to stop it NOW. PLACE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S rules back
into place IMMEDIATELY.

To whom are you directing your demand? We have NO power to do anything to stop or change anything the Biden/Pelosi/Schumer administration wants to do. This is the agenda they have intended for decades. At least 50% of the population of the US doesn’t know or care about any of what is happening on the border.
Democrats brought lawsuits within minutes of EVERY executive order or action President Trump took. Our side just says ‘ho-hum’, we’ll get ’em next time. Their intention is to never give us a “next time” and they’re working full speed ahead to ensure it by flooding the country with millions of illegal Dem voters and passing H R 1 an d S 1 to facilitate their getting away with it.

This morning, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, lives are never going to be the same.

I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.

You can't justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind.

We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

Universities that advocate equality, discriminate against Asian-Americans in favor of African-Americans.

Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.

People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

After legislating gender, if a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

It was cool for Joe Biden to blackmail the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquiries about it.

People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcomed.

$5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

And, pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us racists!

Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it is racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.

We are clearly living in an upside-down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right.

Wake up America. The great unsinkable ship Titanic America has hit an iceberg, is taking on water and sinking fast.

I’m blown away about how you’ve so succinctly consolidated EVERYTHING we’ve all been seeing and feeling into one, short, undeniably accurate list. Thank-you.

Can’t see why AMAC is calling illegal immigrants asylum seekers if they haven’t gone through the process of applying for asylum. They’re illegal border crossers. Families seeking asylum are being sent to Tijuana(if they have sought asylum), whereas the rest are being let loose, escaped custody(if they were ever put in custody), or put in overcrowded cages(children). Is AMAC becoming weak in their narrative and unwilling to tell what’s exactly happening at the border, or does AMAC even know what’s happening at the border?

He’s the perfect patsy. He will be excused of all culpability when the time comes for the powers behind his ‘Presidency’ to declare he’s too mentally challenged to be allowed to continue. ‘The poor dear knew not what he was doing’ so it would be misguided and cruel to hold him accountable.
Of course, they’re not going to unwind or roll any of it back so they’ll get away with what they’ve intended all along.

Just think of people coming across the boarder illegally…..they pay no taxes, they are completely supported by our government and our taxes, they have no jobs or prospects to get jobs is a long way off, they crowd our schools and teaching resources that are stressed financially to the limit, they pay for no healthcare, they drain the resources of the food banks, they have not been checked for viruses that Americans have worked hard to eliminate, and this administration has no plan to stop this crisis and surge at the boarder. O’Biden and his inept handlers have no idea about the problems that they have created now and for many years to come. It is beyond shameful….it is dishonest and inhumane.

They absolutely know the consequences of what they are doing. It is, and has always been, intentional. Cloward and Piven, two Columbia U. professors wrote about it in the 1960’s. Overwhelm the entitlement/welfare system until it collapses and the populace will DEMAND “the govt.” create a new paradigm from the ground up to “fix” it.

Build the wall! Stop the invasion. These people are not asylum seekers, they are invaders that are getting the nod from corrupt, illegal president Biden. Why are these people never sent to D.C., Hawaii, Delaware, Massachusetts, Vermont, etc.? They are usually sent to Red States to dilute the vote. Blue states are given a pass but the illegals find their way there in any cases but in fewer numbers. Arizona is tired of its cities left holding the bag for these invaders. Send them back as soon as they cross! We all know they are not really seeking asylum. They are seeking to get all the social benefits that immediately become available to them. Taxpayers revolt!

I’m so tired of hearing about asylum seekers in this context. If wanting to live in another country is asylum seeking we could all go invade any country at will. How can three or five year olds be asylum seekers? What are they fleeing…except parents who should be in jail for child endangerment. Why aren’t these parent being prosecuted for abandoning their children to coyotes and worse, drug dealers? This whole situation is so appallingly wrong.

Why are we not sending them to Delaware or 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C? Texas is tired of taking care of these people who think they can just waltz into our country and be taken care of–or sell their children to the Cartel, which is what one newscaster said was happening.

Do you seriously think Biden is In Charge of anything? Obama is still calling the shots and, Heaven help us, we know who is backing him. I’ve never seen America face challenges like we face today. If you love your Nation you’d better be watching who you vote for and supporting the Republican Party in this fight! We are but a heartbeat away from Communism.

It’s worse under ‘Biden’ only because it’s actually Obama running it without having to answer for any of his actions as he had to do when he was ‘officially’ in charge. If Obama thought he could have pulled this off when he was ‘in office’, he would have done it then. There was at least minimal opposition to be able to slow it down during his Presidency. Our side just ‘goes along to get along’ with just an isolated objection here and there. The MSM just declares all opposition as racist and the mind-numbed populace just shrugs and goes back to their sports and reality shows.
“Bread and circuses” will be the fall of the American Republic just as it was for the Roman Empire. It will take a literal ‘miracle’ to stop it.
