On Thursday, The Independent Journal Review posted an article reporting that the Biden administration is building part of a border wall at our southern border.
In May 2023, Townhall reported:
According to Customs and Border Protection, since January 2021 when Biden took the oath of office, there have been 5,118,661 encounters with illegal immigrants along the southern border. Add to that the number of known “gotaways” — illegal immigrants who were either spotted visually by border agents or detected via unmanned monitoring equipment and not apprehended — since Biden took office, and the number of illegal immigrants who’ve entered the country is even greater.
Through the first half of Biden’s term from January 2021 through January 2023, Customs and Border Protection reported 1.2 million “gotaways.” That is, at least 1.2 million illegal immigrants were confirmed to have unlawfully crossed the U.S.-Mexico border. The actual number of illegal immigrants who entered the country unimpeded is, by nature of the crime, unknown. It could be double the number of known gotaways, it could be three times worse, or more. We just don’t know, thanks to Biden’s border policies.
The number of illegal immigrants who have entered America since President Biden took office is larger than the number of people who live in 33 or our states. How is it possible for that number of people to assimilate and how is it possible for our social safety net to provide for the needs of that number of people without collapsing (see Cloward-Piven)?
The Independent Journal Review reports:
The Biden administration has changed its stance on building a border wall to curb the flood of illegal immigrants entering the U.S.
Alejandro Mayorkas, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, posted a notice Thursday, declaring, “It is necessary to waive certain laws, regulations, and other legal requirements in order to ensure the expeditious construction of barriers and roads in the vicinity of the international land border in Starr County, Texas.”
This takes effect immediately, citing, “As of early August 2023, Border Patrol had encountered over 245,000 such entrants attempting to enter the United States between ports of entry in the Rio Grande Valley Sector in Fiscal Year 2023.”
Have enough illegals already come in to collapse our treasury and change our voting demographic so it’s okay to close the border now? Is this being done because 2024 is an election year and Americans can see the damage the open border has caused?
