In 2021, the Biden Administration resettled over 146,000 youths who illegally crossed the border all across the nation.
John Binder noted that this number represents a “ foreign population more than twice the size of Portland, Maine and larger than Charleston, South Carolina.”
The data was published by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs’ decision to ask about the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) program. Under this program, thousands of young border crossers reach the U.S.-Mexico border, to then be resettled throughout American communities, all on the American taxpayers’ dime.
From the period of January 20, 2021, to February 7, 2022, Binder observed that “the Biden administration has resettled 146,248 young border crossers with sponsors — nearly 20,000 of which HHS has lost track of.”
While about 128,000 of those young border crossers have been resettled with either parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, or uncles, HHS officials said nearly 18,000 have been placed with sponsors that are unrelated to them or are distant relatives.
Stephen Miller, who is the president of America First Legal and a one of the strongest immigration patriot voices within the Trump administration, explained that several of the “major takeaways” from the HHS data include the agency’s stated goal of permanently resettling young border crossers throughout American communities and the failure to confirm whether sponsors are also illegal aliens.
Neil Munro previously covered how young border crossers are usually smuggled across the southern border, all while coyotes receive payment from the youngsters’ relatives living in the states.
As Binder noted, however, “The UAC pipeline is only one component of illegal immigration to the U.S.”
In just a matter of a few months in 2021, the Biden administration released over 530,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the America interior. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) aided these illegal aliens with the provision of legal services to prevent their deportations.
In January 2022, the Biden administration released over 62,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into the American interior. Binder put some perspective to these numbers: It’s a “foreign population more than twice the size of Princeton, New Jersey; nearly twice the size of Lexington, Massachusetts; and more than six times the size of Jackson, Wyoming.”
This is the real crisis that America is facing. Not what’s going on in Ukraine.
Putting a lid on mass migration is the national security issue of our day. Any Republican incumbent that’s not prioritizing immigration is not a serious elected official and should be relieved of the burden of holding higher office during the primaries. The same standard should hold for Republican candidates going forward. Any candidate who ignores immigration should not receive any votes from the general public.
The days of kicking the immigration can down the road are now over. It’s time for decisive action i.e. passing an immigration moratorium.
