A recent report from The Guardian provided a dire glimpse into the future of the U.S.-Mexico border, given the arrival of nearly 11,000 migrants to Tapachula, which is located on the border between Mexico and Guatemala.
The latest caravan may well become the largest ever, with an estimated 4,000 additional individuals joining the movement barreling straight towards the United States.
Given that Biden’s approval rating continues to plummet, the news of 15,000 new illegals barreling towards the border is unlikely to assuage Americans’ serious security concerns, especially in light of extremely troubling statistics that emerged earlier in the year.
Approximately 234,000 migrants were caught at the border in April, shattering March’s newfound high of 221,000 migrants.
In remarks to Newsmax, NumbersUSA Vice President Chris Chmielenski declared that the Biden administration must reinstate a prior Trump policy known as the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP).
Under this protocol, migrants are forced to remain in Mexico while their alleged asylum cases are pending, limiting the opportunity that they have to skip a court appearance and subsequently disappear inside the United States.
“Most of the them are claiming asylum but most of them don’t qualify for asylum under U.S. law,” Chmielenski remarked.
He also added that a Republican victory in the midterms might improve the chances of passing legislation closing the loopholes presently exploited by migrants.
In sharp contrast to the current White House, the Trump administration encountered just over 70,000 migrants in December 2020, underscoring the enormous difference in national security between both parties.
