Alarming Surge: Illegal Immigrant Numbers Eclipse 36 U.S. States’ Population!

Under President Biden’s administration, the influx of over 7.2 million illegal immigrants into the United States from February 2021 to January 2024 has raised concerns, surpassing the populations of 36 states. The situation, as reported by Sarah Arnold at Townhall, indicates that border encounters for fiscal year 2024 are poised to exceed the previous year’s record. Critics attribute this surge to the policies implemented by the Biden administration, including the suspension of deportations and the cessation of border security measures. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas openly acknowledged allowing 85% of border crossers into the country.

A spokesperson for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) argued that Biden’s open-border policies over the past three years have created an environment where illegal aliens believe they won’t face deportation consequences. This perception, in turn, motivates illegal migrants to cross into the U.S. with the expectation of impunity. Notably, shortly after video footage captured around 200 illegal migrants on the grounds of San Diego, California, President Biden acknowledged that the U.S. immigration system is “broken.”

In his address to the National Governors Association at the White House, Biden highlighted the need for immigration reform, emphasizing adherence to international treaty obligations related to immigration. He expressed a desire to restore America as a nation of laws and immigrants, attributing the current challenges to a system that hasn’t kept pace with evolving laws and resources. The president pointed out that the immigration system’s flaws have persisted over time, resulting in a breakdown exacerbated by political failures to address the issues adequately.

From a conservative perspective, critics argue that Biden’s admission of a broken immigration system underscores the consequences of lax border control policies, which have led to a significant and unprecedented surge in illegal immigration. The emphasis is placed on the need for strong immigration policies, adherence to laws, and comprehensive reforms to address the challenges posed by the broken immigration system.
