Biden’s ‘Seasonal’ Claim of Immigration Nonsense; Border Officials Expected to Announce 450% Increase for June

The Washington Examiner reports that U.S. border officials will soon be releasing the number of encountered illegal immigrants in June. The numbers are mind-blowing. Officials are “expected to reveal soon that they encountered nearly 190,000 illegal immigrants in June, a 450% explosion over last June.”

“Unofficial and preliminary calculations suggest  the number will be 188,000, said a knowledgeable source.” Immediately after taking office, President Joe Biden responded to critics of his border control rhetoric and policies by saying an increase in crossings was “seasonal.”

“there is a significant increase in the number of people coming to the border in the winter months of January, February, March. It happens every year” said Biden in his very first press conference since he took office.

Despite Biden talking about illegal immigration just like one would allergies, he was obviously wrong. The Washington Examiner reports:

Typically in summer, numbers do decline on the southern border. Last June, the total was 33,000. In June 2019, it was 104,311 and in 2018, 43,189. The June 2020 numbers were affected by the COVID-19 rules barring entry and former President Donald Trump’s diplomatic success in getting Mexico to hold migrants pending approval of their applications to enter the United States.

That all changed when Biden came to office. In May, there were 180,034 arrests, a 20-year high. The continued surge shows that migrants are pouring over the border in historic numbers no matter the travel conditions and are breaking historical trends. What’s more, each week, the administration has given new signals that it is dismantling Trump-era immigration restrictions and ending deportations for all but the worst criminals and terrorists.

Former acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan said, “so much for the ‘seasonal’ lie they tried to fly that when it gets hotter, the numbers go down.” Morgan also stated the horrific reality that with the surge came higher numbers of rescues and attempted rescues by border officers, as well as the discovery of dead migrants attempting to reach the U.S.

“When you have open-border policies, people say, ‘I’m coming. I’m going to risk everything” said Morgan. “That’s why I keep saying that the most inhumane thing we do for migrants is to open our borders because you are telling them that their lives are worth risking because once they get here, they are going to be let in, and that’s exactly what’s happening.”

Texas City Considering State Of Emergency Due To Border Crisis

Border crisis

The border city of El Paso, Texas, is considering declaring a state of emergency over the worsening border crisis, city officials announced Wednesday.

“We are extremely grateful to all our partners including the NGOs, the County, State and Federal leaders who understand the extraordinary collaborative lift that is required,” Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino said in a statement.

Just days before the announcement, nearly 100 illegal immigrants were released into downtown El Paso as border facilities reached capacity.

“The migrants were released before dawn, and some quickly made plans to travel on to other cities, while others lingered on the streets of El Paso or at the airport — too broke to leave or book a hotel,” the New York Post reported.

The news comes as border officials brace for a further surge in illegal immigration as a result of President Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42, a Trump-era border security policy. According to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document obtained by ABC News, the end of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border each day.

“The DHS Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) produced projections for post-Title 42 Southwest Border encounters describing low, medium, high, or very high encounter scenarios,” the document says. “These scenarios underpin planning assumptions that generate requirements which in turn drive operational execution. Based on these projections the SBCC is currently planning for 6,000, 12,000 (high) and 18,000 (very high) encounters per day.”

The border is already undergoing the highest levels of illegal immigration on record. Last month, “234,088 migrants encountered at the Southern border in April, per a DHS court filing today. That’s the highest number in DHS history. 117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April. 113,248 were removed, including 96,908 expelled via Title 42,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin announced on Twitter.

Border Patrol Union Leader Warns Biden Ending Title 42 Will Give ‘Control To The Cartels’

Biden Confused

On Wednesday, a union leader representing U.S. Border Patrol agents warned that the Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42 next week will give the cartels full control of the border.

“That we just don’t have anybody in the field, that we just can’t patrol the border. When you look right now, we already start our shifts with 50% of our resources not even performing enforcement activities. They’re in administrative duties,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said during an appearance on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”

“Once this explodes, we’re going to have nearly 100% of our people doing administrative duties rather than enforcement duties. That’s going to give complete control to the cartels. That’s a scary situation to be in,” he added.

Judd’s comments come as “234,088 migrants encountered at the Southern border in April, per a DHS court filing today. That’s the highest number in DHS history. 117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April. 113,248 were removed, including 96,908 expelled via Title 42,” according to Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin.

If the Biden administration successfully ends Title 42 on May 23, the number of migrants encountered at the southern border in a month is expected to surge to over 500,000, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document obtained by ABC News. The document warns that the end of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants attempting to cross the southern border each day.

“The DHS Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) produced projections for post-Title 42 Southwest Border encounters describing low, medium, high, or very high encounter scenarios,” the document says. “These scenarios underpin planning assumptions that generate requirements which in turn drive operational execution.
