More Than 50 Lawmakers Warn Biden Of Brewing ‘Crisis’ Of Illegal Immigration
Many House Republicans warned President Joe Biden over his immigration policies mixed with the executive order signed limiting border security and enforcement will increase the flow of migrants.
“This is not a political game — we implore you not to let ideology blind you administration to the need to secure the border, to defend Americans, and to prevent another cartel-empowering humanitarian crisis,” the letter, obtained by Fox News, says.
According to Fox News, “The letter, from 51 Republicans and led by Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, warns of a ‘rising illegal migration crisis’ and says sources on the ground have told them that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents have seen the average daily flow of migrants at the border surge to more than 3,500 a day from 2,000 last month. Meanwhile, the number of unaccompanied alien children is approaching 300 a day.”
“Biden has stopped construction of the wall at the southern border, proposed a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants, strengthened protections for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and sought to impose a 100-day moratorium on deportations,” Fox News reported. “He has also ordered a review of the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which keeps migrants in Mexico as they await their immigration hearings.”
Lawmakers made sure to call out the executive order Biden signed earlier in the month that will change the border crisis ‘overnight’
From the letter, “Notably, the Trump Administration’s policy to use 42 U.S. Code § 265 is perhaps now the only policy ensuring the southern border is not immediately rushed. Unfortunately, however, just last week, you signed another Executive Order threatening the longevity of this crucial policy. If title 42 is indeed rescinded, the daily illegal flow will become catastrophic overnight.”
Title 42 allows the federal government to ban people from entering the United States from foreign countries due to public health reasons and the Trump administration use Title 42 because of the coronavirus pandemic. Last week it was reported by Daily Wire that a Sheriff from Texas has said it was ‘absolutely true’ the Biden administration is releasing illegal immigrants into U.S. communities without given them a COVID-19 test.
Senator Chuck Grassley criticized Biden, “Can’t fly into USA w/o showing negative test for virus but Pres Biden will let ppl who illegally walked across the border do so w/o testing. Is that protecting out citizens?”

Recently Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has planned to release around 25,600 migrants into Texas and California who have been staying in Mexico. Republicans knew the increase was ‘foreseeable’ because the surge at the border started during the transition of the new administration.
Rep. Jim Jordan said, “President Biden has done more to open the southern border than American schools.”

“Former acting ICE Director Tom Homan has slammed Biden in recent days, saying that the crisis on the southern border was not an ‘accident’ but was ‘by design’ and is the result of believing in open borders. Homan also said that Biden was wanting to flood the country with illegal aliens because he is looking to increase the Democrats’ political power,” reported by Daily Wire.
