ANALYSIS – I have long argued that Joe Biden’s border crisis is absolutely self-created, and it has become increasingly obvious that he in fact has essentially opened the border.
And worse this is absolutely intentional.
There can be no other explanation.
Biden’s shameful denials that there is no border crisis show that he is either delusional or a pathological liar.
But his appointment of Kamala Harris, who can barely find Mexico on a map, as his border czar, also speaks volumes.
Neither has visited the border since coming to office two years ago.
Yet the illegal migrant numbers and incidents are only mushrooming in magnitude.
And getting worse every day.
The border is going from disastrous to cataclysmic.
And it’s not just incompetence or bad policy.
It is part of a plan.
Mark Morgan, former acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection says Team Biden “intentionally unsecured” the southern border because “they see a perceived political benefit from open borders.”
In a recent podcast with the Heritage Foundation, Morgan said of the border:
It’s a total disaster, simply getting worse. And I think what’s important is we really need to compare it to the last year under the Trump administration. Now, look, this is not a Right or Left thing for me. This is about factual data.
So if you look in the last fiscal year under the Trump administration, I think we were around 400,000 total encounters. What we saw the first fiscal year under the Biden administration, as you said, over 2 million. This last fiscal year, we had 2.7 million total encounters. In the first 23, now almost 24 months under this administration, we’ve seen over 4.7 million total encounters with another 1.2 million “got-aways.” So we’re actually getting close to 6 million total encounters, plus got-aways, in the first 24 months of this administration.
Those data points, Virginia, alone are staggering. It’s the worst self-inflicted border crisis we’ve ever seen on our southern border and our lifetime and the data is undeniable.
In response to a question about what the future may hold for the border under Team Biden’s remaining two years, Morgan said worst case things stay the same.
And that is unacceptable. As he added :
It’s insanity. It’s absolutely unsustainable. And again, it’s jeopardizing every aspect of our nation’s safety and national security. We cannot allow this to happen.GAND
