Biden campaigned on easing immigration controls and has done an extraordinary job fulfilling his promise. A record number of illegal immigrants and deadly drugs have flooded into the country during his time in office.
According to Art Arthur, a former federal immigration judge, the Biden administration is violating most of the Immigration Act and lying to Americans about the security of the border.
Record Number of Illegals
About 5.5 million illegal immigrants have crossed U. S. borders since Biden took office. That is roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Ireland.
These record-breaking numbers directly result from open-border policies implemented by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
On February 7, 2023, a committee in the House of Representatives heard, for the first time during the Biden administration, from border patrol agents. Mayorkas tried but failed, to block the border patrol agents’ testimony.
A border patrol agent from Arizona testified that in post-arrest interviews the most common response was that the immigrants believed when the administration changed, the law changed, and there was now an open border.
The Northern Border is Also Not Secure
Representative Elise Stefanick (R – NY) said that New York’s northern border has seen an 846 percent increase in illegal crossings since October 2022. The southern border crisis has forced the transfer of border patrol agents from the northern border leaving security openings in the northern border.
Americans Are Not Happy
A Gallup poll conducted from January 2 to January 22, 2023, showed that Americans’ satisfaction with the level of immigration into the U. S. has fallen to its lowest point in a decade. 63 percent of the respondents said they were dissatisfied with immigration.
The most important job of any leader is to protect the people and build a strong, confident nation. Biden has failed spectacularly on both counts.
According to former Commissioner of Customs Mark Morgan, “It is time for Congress to impeach Secretary Mayorkas, who has served as the chief architect of the open-border policies and continues to lie to the American people about it.”
