The Biden regime’s lawless border policy has had deadly consequences. More than 1.7 million illegal immigrants were detained in Fiscal Year 2021, according to the CBP. The former CBP Commissioner said that the United States has ‘lost control of the southwest border’. In November, 95,000 illegal immigrants were released in to the United States with no court date. This week, the border patrol union said that they are lucky to seize 5% of fentanyl pills coming across the border. Overdose deaths topped 100,000 in the United States in 2021 according to the CDC.

“Border Patrol agents are so busy processing large groups of illegal aliens, that in one Arizona area only four agents are available to patrol a 150-mile section of the border.
“Now that 150 miles of border normally takes about 75 to 90 agents—we had four agents out there,” said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council. Judd testified at an unofficial House hearing at FreedomWorks in Washington on Feb. 1.
“Cartels control the border right now,” Judd said. “They dictate to us what our operations are going to be. That should never happen.”
The amount of drugs being seized has correspondingly plummeted, according to Customs and Border Protection statistics.
“If we seize even 5 percent of what’s coming across the border, we’re lucky,” Judd said, referring to a question about fentanyl pills. “And if there’s nobody there to detect you and apprehend you, the cartels are going to push it through between the ports of entry when they know that there is absolutely no chance that we’re going to apprehend that narcotic.”
Not only is Biden refusing to enforce the immigration laws of our country, he planned to give millions of illegal immigrants amnesty in his “Build Back Better” plan. Despite the bill failing, Vice President Kamala Harris has said that amnesty is still at the top of her priority list.
