Border Crossing Apprehensions for March Reach 15-Year High

Documented border crossings for the month of March have reached a 15-year high according to reports.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended more than 171,000 migrants at the southern border in March, marking a 15-year high.

The figure includes nearly 19,000 unaccompanied minors, which tops the prior all-time monthly high of nearly 12,000 in May 2019. According to the Washington Post, the surge has allowed nearly 1,000 illegal migrants—often cartel smugglers bringing drugs—to enter the United States daily without being captured.

Both Democrats and Republicans have labeled the situation a “crisis,” a tag that President Joe Biden and top White House officials have rejected. Biden insisted during a March press conference that the surge is merely a seasonal spike, falsely asserting that the historic number of migrant apprehensions happens “every single solitary year.” He has yet to address the record number of border crossings in March, and the White House did not return a request for comment.

Biden administration officials expect to encounter 2 million migrants at the southern border in 2021. Border apprehensions have not surpassed 1 million since 2006. Many Border Patrol agents working the northern border are now being reassigned to the Rio Grande Valley to help deal with the surge.

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin has called for a 90-day moratorium on immigration, after visiting the southern border, in order to get the crisis under control.

It’s their plan – overload our systems, allow as many illegals in the country, and with them comes the enemies the democrats want to assist them in overthrowing our country. They will ignore it, while the citizens have to face the consequences. We’ve already seen an increase in crime in our area.

Shelley – And like Hitler, they want to do the dictatorial takeover by legal means so that there will be few objections from the people. The Democrat Party approves of the increases in crimes in American communities, since that raises the social impression of “doom and gloom” and convinces people that nothing can be done but to accept the Democrat takeover to finally get peace. The solution? Eliminate the Democrat Party in the country – eliminate them for good.

Biden is a menace to the American people’s safety as well as our freedoms. It reminds me of the early days in Germany just before the war. The people believed the government and look what happened. They couldn’t fathom what would actually take place. History is repeating itself. Learn from it or suffer the consequences of ignorance.

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds has the solution. Look the Delaware Dunce straight in the eye and say no. This border catastrophe is your problem. You solve it. Iowa has no resources for such nonsense.

Fact is none of the states have the resources. Military bases that have thus far provided safe harbor need to seek permission to transport them back to their home nations. President Bye Done broke the law by harboring illegal aliens and should be punished.

Biden is a disgrace to our country. We are still in a pandemic an this asshole is letting in thousands of people. His wife should be ashamed of herself for pushing this brain dead moron. That is elder abuse. She just wanted to be First Lady. After three tries. Parents go to jail for abuse of their children. Well Jill is in the same boat.

The percentage on a recent poll of who did more for the country, Obama, or Trump was 92% for Trump, and 8% for Obama. That ratio should have been similar for the final election results of 2010 for President Trump vs Joe Biden (Obama’s boy), but some way, some how, all the computers keeping count hi-cupped,and the numbers went the wrong way
