(Opinion) Despite its numerous failures, the Biden Administration can boast of having made spectacular progress in one of its main implicit goals: to change the country’s population.
In the last fiscal year – Oct. 1, 2021, to Sept. 20 of this year – 2.2 million aliens have illegally entered the United States.
A population more significant than that of 15 states in the Union, Wyoming, Vermont, Alaska, North Dakota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Delaware, Montana, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire, Hawaii, West Virginia, Idaho, Nebraska, and New Mexico.
Don’t look for precedent: there is none.
Such numbers have never been seen in the country’s entire history, and it has been the conscious and deliberate policy of the present administration that has made this acceleration of population replacement possible.
And there is no sign that it will stop shortly; quite the contrary, which augurs a collapse of social services and an exponential increase in citizen insecurity in the foreseeable future.
“The time for excuses is over. The next Congress must take real action to hold this administration accountable for the chaos and carnage it has wrought on our southwest border,” former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas Homan told Breitbart News.
“It’s a shameful episode in our history, and the ones suffering are not the elites in their gated and secure Beltway communities,” Homan notes.
“Border Patrol agents are overwhelmed every day. Families have been torn apart because they lost a loved one to fentanyl or other drugs. And it’s the migrants who are worthless to the cartels once they’ve been paid. The next Congress had better do something about it.”
The Department of Homeland Security has consistently pursued a suicidal policy of dispersing immigrants tracked by agents to various communities around the country, almost invariably in Republican states, so that those communities will take care of the newcomers as best they can.
From Feb. 2021 through Aug. 2022, for example, the Biden Administration released about 1.35 million border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the United States, an alien population roughly three times the size of Miami, Florida.
Meanwhile, House Republican leaders vow to resume the southern border wall construction and end the policy of releasing captured illegals into the territory.
All indications are that the massive illegal immigration disaster will be a crucial issue in the impending mid-term elections.
