Illegal Immigration Crisis Grows Under Biden Despite Admin’s Dismissal

The Biden administration claims that illegal immigration numbers are going down, but the truth is that they are still much higher than when President Trump was in charge. U.S. Customs and Border Protection data shows that there were nearly 250,000 encounters with illegal immigrants in April 2024, making a total of over 1.9 million so far this fiscal year. This is a stark contrast to the numbers under President Trump, with current encounters being higher than any complete fiscal year during his administration.

Former Customs and Border Protection acting commissioner Mark Morgan criticized the Biden administration for manipulating immigration statistics. He pointed out that while last month’s numbers may be slightly lower compared to previous years, they are still at crisis levels. The Biden administration has been trying to downplay the situation, but the reality is that illegal immigration remains a pressing issue.

It is concerning to note that over 41,000 people were processed through the CBP One app last month, allowing them to wait in Mexico until their appointment to enter the U.S. While these individuals would typically be deemed inadmissible, they are being processed in a way that avoids negative political optics. This method is merely a facade to make it seem like the situation is under control.

Moreover, there has been a significant increase in the number of people arriving at the Southwest border, with almost 6,000 individuals coming daily. This influx is putting immense pressure on the immigration system, with former Obama administration Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson warning that 1,000 apprehensions a day would overwhelm it. The issue of illegal immigration has become a top concern for voters leading up to the upcoming election, according to a recent Gallup poll.

In conclusion, it is evident that illegal immigration remains a major challenge despite the Biden administration’s efforts to downplay the severity of the situation. The increasing numbers of encounters at the border and the lack of effective measures to address the crisis highlight the need for stronger border security policies. The upcoming election provides an opportunity for voters to voice their concerns on this critical issue and demand accountability from elected officials.
