If you thought that the border crisis was bad since Joe Biden came in, be prepared for “You ain’t seen nothing yet.”
When even NBC is admitting there’s a big problem coming, you know it’s going to be bad, and they just admitted what we’re likely to see for the month of October. In August, we saw more than 208,000 Border Patrol encounters with illegal aliens at the border. That, of course, doesn’t even include the uncounted thousands who are never encountered by the Border Patrol. But in October, they are now estimating it may be as many as 400,000 coming in a single month — twice what we have been seeing, which had already hit a 21-year high.
"As many as 400,000 migrants" are heading to the U.S. border, NBC News reports.

On top of that, Panama’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Erika Mouynes, said that the Biden administration shouldn’t have been caught off guard by the Haitian migrant surge that happened in September because she had warned them it was coming. Now, she’s saying expect 60,000 more on the way. “We’ve engaged with every single authority that we can think of, that we can come across, to say, ‘Please, let’s pay attention to this,'” Mouynes said. But Biden didn’t take the warning. Mouynes wants coordination to slow the number of people coming through her country on the way to the United States.
So what is the Biden Administration’s response to all this? Making it easier on illegal aliens.
The DHS has ordered its people to stop deporting people based on illegal entry. Even those who have committed crimes while here may also escape deportation if they fit the new mitigating factors from the DHS.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ordered authorities Thursday to prioritize illegal immigrants for deportation who “pose a threat to national security, public safety, and border security” — claiming that the government does not have the resources to apprehend every person who has entered the US unlawfully.
“The fact an individual is a removable noncitizen … should not alone be the basis of an enforcement action against them,” reads the seven-page memo from Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. “We will use our discretion and focus our enforcement resources in a more targeted way. Justice and our country’s well-being require it.”
Most shockingly, the memo suggests there can be “mitigating factors” that argue against deporting an illegal immigrant who has committed a crime, including “advanced or tender age”; “lengthy presence in the United States”; “military or other public service of the noncitizen or their immediate family”; and “the impact of removal on family in the United States”.
Who is considered a threat is also subjective, according to Mayorkas’ memo.
“Whether a noncitizen poses a current threat to public safety is not to be determined according to bright lines or categories,” the memo reads. “It instead requires an assessment of the individual and the totality of the facts and circumstances.”
The document states that “the majority of undocumented noncitizens who could be subject to removal have been contributing members of our communities for years. They include individuals who work on the frontlines in the battle against COVID, lead our congregations of faith, teach our children, do back-breaking farm work to help deliver food to our table, and contribute in many other meaningful ways.”
The guidelines now say that the focus should be on those suspected of terrorism or espionage and/or who entered the U.S. after Nov. 1, 2020. This is supposed to go into effect on November 29.
What kind of a signal do they think that sends to folks thinking of coming illegally? If they make it to the country, the smart money under Biden says they’ll get to stay. That’s why thousands are on the way.
The Biden Administration is also still fighting to resist the reimposition of the Remain in Mexico program. Former DHS acting Secretary Chad Wolf said that was madness and asked if they were “trying to fail.”
This is unreal. DHS is focused on terminating the Remain in Mexico program AGAIN – after the courts told them to restart the program and despite its effectiveness. It’s like they are trying to fail. https://t.co/fwnUfsE7hq

That’s a good question. At this point, one has to believe they are because no one is this incompetent. Unless they intend to be. They really want to open the door and they’re not even hiding it anymore.
