After the Biden administration announced it would stop using the Trump-era Title 42 policy at the end of May, triggering more than 18,000 migrant crossings a day. On Friday, border patrol agents briefed House Republicans on the already desperate situation at the border and expressed concerns over the May 23rd end to Title 42.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“There is no longer a few border cities, every city in America is now a border city,” Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said at a press conference following the briefing.
Currently, about 8,000 people try to cross the southern border illegally daily, already above the operational capacity of 5,000, said Rep. John Katko of New York. With cartels charging $4,000 a head for passage, they make about $1 billion every month which they invest in manufacturing fentanyl that they then sell in the US. After Title 42 goes away, that number will increase to 18,000, and issues stemming from unchecked immigration will increase at the same rate, Katko continued.
“We have a very good chance because of what’s going on with this president’s policies of having a destabilized nation on our border,” Katko said. “This is a national security issue that’s going to get worse as time goes on this summer.”
Members also touched on the low morale among border agents, as well as the fentanyl smuggling and sex trafficking that takes place due to lack of enforcement on the border.
Three states have already filed a lawsuit over President Biden’s choice to end the policy.
Biden is the most evil President this country has ever had. It really doesn’t matter weather he want’s what is happening under his watch, he willing goes along with the communist agenda.
Just wonder how many have crossed since joe took over?
