More than 1.8 million illegal immigrants are expected to cross the U.S.-Mexico border this year, making it the “worst ever” on record, highlighting President Joe Biden’s failed policies, according to a new forecast.
The projection from showed that a high of 1,864,000 illegal immigrants could cross the southwest border based on current trends and past averages.
The report said that would be 250,000 more than the next highest number recorded in 2000.
Biden, who has put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis, has done all he can to dismantle former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. He has stopped construction of a border wall, virtually stopped deportations of illegal immigrants already in the U.S., snuffed out diplomatic agreements that kept immigrants at the border, and signaled that crossings will go unstopped — all while telling immigrants to stay away.
Harris has done little publicly to help.
At the same time, Republicans and Trump have been visiting the border to highlight the crisis and build the issue into a top 2022 election topic.
Polls have shown anger growing in the nation over Biden’s open-border policies and practice of dumping illegal immigrants in cities around the nation.
Frankly, there’s little the Biden administration can do to correct this issue in the eyes of the American people. The crisis is well under way and unless Biden quickly reinstates the Trump-era policies he destroyed, there’s no telling just how bad the border nightmare can get.
