On his first day in office, President Biden started his presidency by stopping the border wall’s construction and loosening deportation policies — even for dangerous criminals.
During his presidential campaign, Biden had said that he would get “dreamers” certified immediately and “put on a path to citizenship.”
“And the fact is, I’ve made it very clear. Within 100 days, I’m going to send the United States Congress a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people, and all of those so-called dreamers—those DACA kids are going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship.”
Now, as the border crisis worsens by the day, Biden continues to deny media access. According to Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, the number of illegal immigrants escalates by the hour. A pod designed for 80 children had 709 living in it.
“They were literally piled in and had no room. They were taking turns laying down on the floor because there’s no space for them to be able to be there,” he said.
Lankford says that statistics show the number of illegal immigrants “skyrocketed in February and March” after President Biden “came in and announced that he was changing the policy.”
He continues explaining his experience at the border facility, saying that many illegal immigrants are COVID positive, but they aren’t tested for several days.
“They’re literally spreading it all around,” he claimed. Despite some of them not being tested, those illegal immigrants are “released out into HHS custody and the rest of the country.”
The number of illegal immigrants coming into the country is now so high that the border facilities can’t process all of them. As a result, they’re released into the country after their basic information is taken.
While illegal immigrants continue to cross the border, smugglers take the chance to bring as many drugs as they can into the country.
As Senator Lankford said, “This is a rolling, growing, accelerating crisis.”
