Biden border crisis felt here at home


Since President Biden took office, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has encountered more illegal immigrants attempting to cross our southwest border than the population of our State of Mississippi. President Biden’s disaster at the southwest border is a national security threat that endangers the lives of the American people and threatens the stability of our communities. The border crisis worsens each day with an overwhelming and record influx of illegal immigrants, drugs, violent criminals, sexual predators, gang members, and suspected terrorists. Even more terrifying, these numbers don’t include the skyrocketing number of known “gotaways” who successfully evade the U.S. Border Patrol and flee into the interior of the United States. Since October 2021, the number of “gotaways” stands at 440,000. This is unacceptable. The Biden administration never hesitates to hobble and vilify the brave men and women of CBP who are attempting to keep our nation safe and secure. Under the failed policies of the Biden administration, CBP will lose operational control of our border with Mexico.

We need to return to policies that worked. The Trump administration implemented common-sense border policies that created a successful deterrent against cartels smuggling humans and illegal drugs into the United States. Two of the Trump administration’s highly successful policies were building the border wall and implementing the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), commonly known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy. The border wall works. Ask Border Patrol agents on the ground along our southwest border and they will tell you the value of the wall. But on his first day in office, President Biden halted all border wall construction without exception, creating an opening for cartels and smugglers while costing the American taxpayers millions of dollars in broken contracts.
