What is Joe Biden doing about the border?
As we wrote, he claims he has a “plan” (doesn’t say what it is). Apparently, the plan is to let all kids in. Jen Psaki says they will let media in to see what’s going on in the CBP facilities (doesn’t say when), but in the meantime, they’re keeping media out and just apparently focused on trying to open up more facilities to deal with the unaccompanied minors flooding in rather than cutting off the spigot and preventing them from entering.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) brought a Congressional delegation to the border. They took troubling pictures and video but a Biden staffer tried to prevent Cruz from taking video showing how on top of each other the people packed into one of the plastic cages in a CBP facility in Donna, Texas, were.
But we say it’s going to get far worse; we wanted to go into a little more depth and explain just what is coming.
Prior to Joe Biden, the highest number of unaccompanied minors was 11,475. That was with President Donald Trump doing all he could to fight the Democrats to get the border protections. Then they had no problem calling it a “crisis.”
A month ago, it was projected that the numbers in May would already be way beyond that at 13,000.
Now, according to Axios, the new estimates are 16,000 for this month and with the estimate for May at 22,000 to 25,000, with the projections for the next several months being over 20,000 a month and 26,000 projected in September. That’s more than double what was already considered a crisis. It’s anticipated to last at least the next seven months. It’s projected they’ll need 34,000 more beds for September and possibly have 53,000 in custody then.
Why? Because the Biden team has publicly announced they won’t be expelling unaccompanied minors. Not only is that powering the surge but it’s also giving millions to the cartels who are trafficking the children. It’s endangering the children on the way — and after, when they’re in debt to the cartels. Biden has also waived FBI checks on the folks taking care of the kids in any of the unlicensed facilities he’s opening up which are not only unlicensed but more expensive, as well. Biden doesn’t care about how much he’s actually endangering them as he piously claims he’s being “humane” or how much crime he is aiding by bringing in people who now will owe thousands to the cartels.
“Under current policies, the government is facing unheard of numbers of migrant kids illegally crossing the border this fiscal year — from 159,000 to 184,000.” Barack Obama struggled in 2014 with 69,000. There are expected to be between 500,000 to 800,000 entering migrant family groups.
Yet Biden is doing absolutely nothing to shut off the spigot of unaccompanied minors.
