(Tea Party PAC) – Even during the COVID-19 “pandemic” when our economy crashed, the United States was still a popular destination for illegal immigrants. Could that be because of how easy it is for them to mooch off the system here? Without a doubt.
Illegal immigrants probably fared pretty darn well throughout the COVID crisis considering all of the increases to government assistance and all the restrictions put on landlords and debt collectors.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that in the month of October the US border authorities stopped people illegally entering the country from Mexico more than 69,000 times. October was also the sixth straight month that this number increased and was the highest it’s been since July 2019, according to the AP.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner attributed the steady increase of illegal crossings to deteriorating economic conditions.
The AP reports that there have been “large numbers of repeat crossers” since the pandemic began in March. During that time, authorities were removing illegal aliens from the country under “pandemic-related authority” without providing them with an opportunity to seek asylum.
From March to September, the rate at which people who got caught attempting to cross who had also been caught a previous time was 37% and most of them were adults from Mexico who were traveling alone.
Morgan reported that October’s 69,000 stops were a significant increase from 57,674 in September and 45,139 in October of 2019. It also marks the highest level since July 2019 when there were 81,777.
Of course, people are likely flocking here now that Joe Biden and the media have declared him to be the “president-elect.” There won’t be a more friendly place in the world for illegal immigrants under a Joe Biden administration.
Biden has already vowed to end many of the restrictions on asylum seeking that have stood under President Trump’s administration. One such policy Biden seeks to end is requiring immigrants to wait in Mexico for immigration court hearings in the US.
Joe Biden wants open borders and has no problem with illegal immigrants sneaking into the US and then disappearing into the shadows while they await court hearings that they never show up to.
As far as President Trump’s border wall that he delivered to the American people as promised, Biden says he plans to put a stop to construction, of course. Currently there are 402 miles of completed border wall and construction is on track to complete 450 by the end of the year.
69,000 are the number of people caught in one month attempting to enter the US illegally. Imagine how many made it through.
Under Joe Biden you can expect radical changes to the make-up of this country. Illegals from Central and South America are going to flood here for free healthcare, housing, food, and whatever other handouts progressives in Congress decide to dole out as rewards.
Eventually it won’t even be a crime to cross our border anymore. Progressives are all about open borders and doing away with national identity and sovereignty. The reason for that is painfully obvious.
More illegal immigrants lead to more government assistance which leads to higher taxes to pay for it all. Middle-class working Americans will undoubtedly foot the bill and end up poorer and poorer.
These once successful middle-class Americans will also end up on government assistance which they will ironically be funding. Everyone will need to eat out the benevolent hand of the government and that is exactly where they want us.
Poor, underemployed, and miserable.
That will be Joe Biden’s America.
