This is the result of Biden’s policies at our southern border, and the impending expiration of Title 42. And, of course, the Biden administration and media are blaming Trump and his policies.
President Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson has said that 1,000 border arrests per day was more than the agency could handle. We’re now seeing close to 7,000 border-jumpers per day, overwhelming our agents and freeing the cartels to move their poison over unguarded borders.
Title 42 will stop border agents from sending migrants back to Mexico after hopping the border. When Title 42 goes away, DHS has warned that daily border arrests could more than double, to as much as 18,000 a day, or more than half a million each month.
That’s a disaster.
But what kind of disaster? Democratic officials — Adams, Biden, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, among others — treat the border crisis as an act of God, like the aforementioned hurricanes and earthquakes, and so the obvious response is to have FEMA spend money to mop up the consequences.
