Looks Like The "Border Challenge" Is Too Much For Dems
Press Secretary Psaki claimed that there is no border challenge. She instead claims it's more of a challenge. A challenge that the Biden Administration created and according to the statistics is only getting worse. So it seems far more fitting to call it a border crisis since that's what it actually is. The CBP released stats that show just how poorly the Dems are doing in handling the border. There is a 944% increase in migrants trying to cross out border illegally, all thanks to Biden.
"Just in April, U.S. Customs and Border Protection encountered 178,622 migrants attempting to cross the southwest land border. Last April, there were only 17,106 encounters. That’s a 944% increase. The annual total for 2021 so far is 749,613 migrants at the southwest border.
The numbers of unaccompanied minors are unlike anything seen before. April saw 17,171 minors, while last year in April there were only 741. Even then, April 2021 saw a slight decrease of 9% unaccompanied minors when compared to March 2021. However, immigration overall increased from March to April by 3%. The Biden administration recently announced a new procedure for processing these abandoned children, which might also cause a shift in the numbers later this year."
The CBP released a statement
“CBP continues to see a large influx of illegal migration along the Southwest Border,” said CBP Senior Official Performing the Duties of Commissioner Troy Miller. “In order to disrupt criminal organizations that have little regard for human life, CBP is leading the way alongside external law enforcement partners through Operational Sentinel. Day after day, CBP rescues migrants abandoned in harsh terrain, left for dead with no food or water. CBP is committed to enhancing the security of the U.S. border and helping save the lives of vulnerable migrants.”
But Dems don't seem to actually care about these illegal immigrants. AOC hasn't been down to the border to call out the poor living conditions and really it seems they are just going to keep things going as is. Dems seem to look at this border crisis as an opportunity to fluff their electoral base. They just don't want to openly admit that.
