Border Disaster is not an Act of God — it’s an Act of Biden; Biden’s Pathetic Disregard for the Humanitarian Catastrophe at the Border

Border disaster is not an act of God — it’s an act of Biden:
Don’t let anyone tell you the border isn’t a disaster.
Mayor Eric Adams has asked FEMA for $1 billion to cope with the consequences of the Biden administration’s refusal to enforce the border. FEMA’s responsibilities include dealing with wildfires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and now, another kind of disaster: an open border.
And it’s about to get worse.
This Wednesday, December 21, something called Title 42 is supposed to end (though a judge may keep it going a little longer). The program was a holdover from the COVID pandemic and allows Border Patrol agents to bounce illegal border-jumpers back into Mexico without getting a hearing or making an asylum claim. It was the only Trump-era immigration-related measure the Biden people kept in place, though they’ve been using it less and less.
Even though Title 42 is no substitute for actual border enforcement, it’s the only thing standing between today’s chaos and the total disappearance of the border.
President Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson has said that 1,000 border arrests per day was more than the agency could handle. We’re now seeing close to 7,000 border-jumpers per day, overwhelming our agents and freeing the cartels to move their poison over unguarded borders. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden’s pathetic disregard for the humanitarian catastrophe at the border:
Joe Biden just admitted, yet again, that the humanitarian disaster at our southern border does not matter to him. He simply views it as a negligible price to pay for his open-borders policy.
“There are more important things going on,” sniffed the president, when asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy why he had not visited the border during an Arizona visit.
Sorry, but there really aren’t any, at least not domestically.
The fiscal year that ended September 30 saw a record 2.4 million migrants encountered at the southern border, up almost 40% from the previous year (which was already a record-breaker). There have been at least 207,000 encounters already in November, as well as 137,000 “gotaways” — migrants spotted but not stopped by Customs and Border Protection agents — since October 1.
Remember too that a huge chunk of those stopped are turned back under Title 42, a Trump-era COVID rule that Biden tried to get rid of (then panicked when he saw how bad the numbers were and reversed course). But a federal court has ordered the rule must expire by Dec. 21. So expect another tidal wave increase to start 2023. --->READ MORE HERE
