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 Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas 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 are directly the result of open-border policies implemented by Mayorkas.
In February 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 from the immigrants was they believed when Biden was elected, the law changed, and there was now an “open border.”
Biden to Release & Not Track Illegals
In March 2021, Biden began releasing migrants without court dates to alleviate overcrowding. He enrolled those migrants in a program that required them to check in on a mobile app until they were given a court date.
On May 9, 2023, a record 11,000 border apprehensions were made in one day. Biden then informed Customs to release migrants without court dates or attempts to track them.
On May 11, 2023, Title 42 was lifted, and processing centers, already over capacity, were overrun. Customs began to immediately release migrants into the U.S.
Homeless Vets Kicked Out of Hotels
The Mayor of NYC Eric Adams is sending migrants to hotels that are kicking out homeless veterans to make room for the incoming illegal immigrants.
The hotels are getting $190 per night to house the migrants as opposed to the $90 a night they were getting to house the homeless veterans.
Mayorkas Reveals His Plan to Congress
On March 29, 2023, Mayorkas testified before both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
In his testimony, he revealed that he is allowing millions of asylum seekers into the U.S. who will likely never be approved and have no legitimate reason for seeking asylum. Mayorkas said, “They will enjoy a lengthy stay in the United States, regardless of the merit of an individual’s case.”
The government transports these illegal immigrants to anywhere in the U.S. they want to go and allows them to claim benefits.
The backlog for immigration courts has increased by over 60% since Biden took office.
Congress needs to enforce accountability by impeaching Mayorkas and forcing the Department of Homeland Security to do its job and enforce all immigration laws.
The most important job of any leader is to protect the people and build a strong, confident nation. The Biden administration has failed spectacularly onh 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.”
