The Joe Biden administration has overseen more unaccompanied minor children trafficked across the US-Mexico border than ever before in U.S. history.
Let that fact sink in for a minute.
Child smugglers and human traffickers have been emboldened to ramp up their business thanks to Biden and his open border policies.
The Biden administration’s focus on quickly releasing the children has made the U.S. government into the facilitator for human smuggling.
The Biden administration has helped child traffickers perfect their business model. If they simply drop them over the wall then they’re not going to get arrested by DHS because they can just flee back to Mexico while DHS is too busy taking care of the kid.
More than 125,000 children traveling without parents have shown up along the U.S.-Mexico border to be taken into custody under the Biden administration, an unprecedented figure, according to data from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
From February through August, 112,433 unaccompanied children were found after crossing the southern border, the Washington Examiner reported, citing CBP data.
The Department of Homeland Security has not released official numbers for child arrivals in September or in the first 15 days of October, but data from the Department of Health and Human Services reveals approximately 15,000 additional children were encountered by federal law enforcement in that period, for a total of more than 125,000 children, the news outlet reported.
The 125,000 arrivals in less than nine months is higher than the 12-month record of 80,000 set in 2019.
Children smuggled to the United States come primarily from poor Central American countries south of Mexico but are now also coming thousands of miles away from South American nations, the data showed.
Since March, between 14,000 and 19,000 single children have come over the border each month; until this year, the record for children encountered in a single month was 11,861 in May 2019.
The troubling surge in unaccompanied children at the border comes as more than 1.7 million migrants were apprehended along the Mexico border during the 2021 fiscal year that ended in September — with arrests by the Border Patrol soaring to the highest levels ever recorded.
This harrowing reality is contributing to the dire circumstances many American are experiencing today. With an on-going pandemic and crumbling job market, the last thing U.S. workers need is more competition from third world illegal immigrants.
