The situation on the southern border has reached a new low, and it is getting harder and harder for President Biden to ignore the growing disaster.
Border patrol officials announced that border patrol agents had apprehended nearly 4,000 illegal immigrants. That number set a record on the same day that Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas arrived to investigate the situation.
The situation on the southern border has gone from a minor headache to a scandal capable of taking down President Biden and his administration.
Under Biden’s leadership, border patrol agents are encountering record numbers of illegal immigrants. Holding facilities have been completely overwhelmed even as President Biden continues to encourage illegal immigrants to make the deadly trek.
Unfortunately, Secretary Mayorkas decided to blame the previous administration for the situation. Mayorkas said, “We’re facing a serious challenge at our southern border, and the challenge is, of course, made more acute, more difficult because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has also been made more difficult because of the fact that the prior administration dismantled our asylum system.”
