According to multiple reports, illegal immigration is skyrocketing to new highs under President Biden, with no end in sight to the ever-growing crisis at the southern border.
The Washington Examiner cited a disturbing forecast from Princeton Policy Advisors that this will be the worst year on record for illegal immigration into the USA. It indicates that more than 1.8 million illegal immigrants are projected to cross the border this year.
The Examiner outlined how this increase is a direct result of border policies implemented by President Biden
Biden, who has put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis, has done all he can to dismantle former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. He has stopped construction of a border wall, virtually stopped deportations of illegal immigrants already in the U.S., snuffed out diplomatic agreements that kept immigrants at the border, and signaled that crossings will go unstopped — all while telling immigrants to stay away.
Further details of the shocking increase in illegal immigration under Biden are revealed in a study by two GOP House committees. According to the GOP report:
In April, CBP encountered over 178,000 illegal aliens, a twenty year record and a 944% increase compared to April 2020 (17,106). 28 In May, CBP encountered over 180,000 illegal aliens, a 675% increase compared to May 2020 (23,237). 29 In June, CBP encountered over 188,000 illegal aliens, a 471% increase compared to June 2020 (33,049).
NBC News also recently reported that the number of June illegal border crossing attempts number is at a 21-year high.
NBC added that over 105,000 were sent back without a chance to claim asylum under a Covid protocol, but Biden plans to end this policy at the end of July. Border patrol officials are reportedly worried this will lead to a further increase in illegal border crossings.
Over the long term, the numbers are even more jaw dropping.
Despite Trump’s efforts to curb illegal immigration, Breitbart News reported that during his administration the number of illegal immigrants rose by an estimated 2 million. Under Biden though, the “illegal alien population ‘could exceed 20 million’ if Biden ‘implements all of his preferred policies’ by the end of 2024.”
That would mean more than 7.5 million illegal aliens would enter the country after just one term of President Biden.
Unless our elected officials act fast, this crisis could easily turn into a full blown national disaster.
