Biden Continues to Import as Many Illegals as He Can Get Away With, Breaks Multiple Records in August

Despite protestations to the contrary from Joe Biden, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and Karine Jean-Pierre, the most inept White House press secretary in recent history, the administration continues to import as many illegal aliens as it can get away with — and it will continue to do so, as long as it can.


In August, the Biden administration broke several illegal alien importation records, including record inflows of all illegals, illegals from Mexico, and non-working dependents.

Keep in mind, as we continue, that throughout the 2020 presidential election campaign season, with respect to illegal aliens, Biden promised everything from welcoming mariachi bands, piñatas for the kiddos, and one-way-only, northbound people movers all along the southern border.

So, how bad was it? 

In just one example, in 2022, 250,000 soon-to-be illegals crossed the rainforest in Venezuela on their way to the U.S. border. This year, the number has already topped 360,000.  

The August Records

Yep, in August alone

1: Biden’s deputies welcomed about 260,000 migrants across the border in August, or 23 times the inflow of 11,652 migrants in October of 2020, or Fiscal Year 2021. That date was President Donald Trump’s last full month before his defeat in the 2020 election.

The 260,000 arrivals in August 2023 include 232,972 migrants allowed across the border as Title 8 migrants, plus the monthly inflow of roughly 30,000 migrants each month who are being invited to fly into U.S. airports from their home countries.

2. Biden’s pro-migration border chief — Alejandro Mayorkas also welcomed 55,502 Mexican migrants, even though he has the legal authority to send the migrants back over the border. This is an 11-fold jump from December 2020 — which was Trump’s last month in office — when 4,758 Mexicans were allowed across the border.

Mayorkas is accepting more Mexican migrants in exchange for cooperation from Mexico’s pro-migrant government, which is now helping to regulate — not stop — the flow of worldwide migrants across its territory. The Mexicans’ cooperation minimizes the media visibility of Biden’s global inflow into American society.

3. Mayorkas is also extracting more migrants from the Central American countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras. This flow has jumped from 3,766 in December 2020 under Trump, up to 79,190 in August 2023. That growth marks a 21-fold increase by Biden.

4.  Mayorkas is also expanding the number of migrants that use his “CPB One” cellphone app to ask for appointments at the official gates at the border. The gates are managed by the Office of Field Operations (OFO), and they processed 51,913 migrants in August, up 47-fold from the 1,106 migrants admitted by OFO during Trump’s last full month.

5.  [A] record inflow of women and children, nearly all of whom are trying to join men who were allowed into the United States in prior months. The inflow of dependents reached 131,144 in August, up 60 times from the inflow of 2,162 in October 2020.


With no end in sight, and as I said at the top, the Biden administration will continue its damnedest to continue to import as many illegals as it can get away with.

And Then There's Eagle Pass, Texas

As my colleague Sister Toldjah recently reported, even the Hispanic Democrat mayor of Eagle Pass is fed up with the never-ending insanity of the Biden Border Crisis.

And the Biden illegal alien importation band plays on, from California to Florida, with no end in sight. 

The Real Impact of Illegal Alien Importation

While the left argues that illegal aliens take only menial jobs (not racist at all, by the way, my Democrat friends) and, therefore, don't impact the jobs or wages of everyday Americans, others argue that the sheer number of illegals streaming into the country is already impacting wage scales for (non-union) blue-collar workers.

I'm not qualified to make the above call, but in 2022, George J. Borjas, a professor of economics and social policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, weighed in on the issue.


I’ve been studying immigration for 30 years, but 2016 was the first time my research was cited in a convention speech. When he accepted his party’s nomination in July, Donald Trump used one of my economic papers to back up his plan to crack down on immigrants and build a physical wall: “Decades of record immigration have produced lower wages and higher unemployment for our citizens, especially for African-American and Latino workers,” he told the cheering crowd. 


[It] might be hard for many Americans to process, but anyone who tells you that immigration doesn’t have any negative effects doesn’t understand how it really works. When the supply of workers goes up, the price that firms have to pay to hire workers goes down. 

Wage trends over the past half-century suggest that a 10 percent increase in the number of workers with a particular set of skills probably lowers the wage of that group by at least 3 percent. Even after the economy has fully adjusted, those skill groups that received the most immigrants will still offer lower pay relative to those that received fewer immigrants.

Let's just call it "supply (of workers) and demand" (for jobs) and move on. 

The Bottom Line

I know I've written the following more times than I can remember, but I'm going to write it again.

When Democrats can't win by the rules, their kneejerk reaction is to cheat. When cheating isn't sufficient, they do their damnedest to change the rules. With respect to the never-ending Biden Border Crisis, we see both strategies. 


Joe Biden and the Democrats (falsely) believe that if they import enough "future Democrat voters," they can permanently change the political demographics of this country.

I parenthesized "falsely" because I've been convinced since at least 2018 that a majority of future Hispanic voters are not going to play the roles written for them by the Democrat Party.

End of story.
