Kamala Harris was named border czar and nothing has gone right since that day at the southern border. The situation is spiraling out of control and it seems not even the Supreme Court making Biden reinstate Trump’s remain in Mexico policy can stem the tide.
Imagine how bad it would be if SCOTUS ruled in favor of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris? It would be such a disaster. Look, Trump can’t save them, they will need to figure out a solution and as of right now they are clueless. Out of ideas. They seem stunned and confused in the face of the crisis, like a deer caught in a headlight.
Now Fox News is reporting that the number of migrants, predominantly from Haiti, waiting under the International Bridge in Del Rio, Texas has doubled to more than 8,000 in a single day.
Sources at the border also told Fox that the situation is “out of control” and that the hard men and women working for the Border Patrol are overwhelmed.
Bill Melugin reported “Our drone is back over the international bridge in Del Rio, TX. Per the source, the number of migrants waiting to be processed has now swelled to approx 8,200. It was 4,000 yesterday AM. Doubled in one day. Border Patrol overwhelmed, and I’m told the situation is out of control.”
He added: “Law enforcement source on the ground at the bridge this morning just sent me this video showing the situation there. I’m told a large majority of the migrants are Haitians and more are crossing into the US and arriving at the bridge by the minute. BP w/ limited manpower.”
From Fox News:
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Wednesday that there were 208,887 migrant encounters in August, a slight decline from the 212,000 encounters in July and the second month in a row where the number of encounters breached the 200,000 mark. Fox News first reported the numbers.
Of those encounters, 44% resulted in an expulsion under Title 42 public health protections, but just 19% of the more than 86,000 family unit encounters ended in a Title 42 expulsion.
The 208,887 number for August represents a 317% increase over last August 2020 which saw 50,014 encounters — and a 233% increase over August 2019, where there were 62,707 amid that year’s border crisis.
The Biden administration has blamed the Trump administration for sealing off legal pathways to asylum, while pushing a strategy that includes a strong focus on tackling root causes like violence, corruption and poverty in Central America.
Republicans have blamed the Biden administration’s rollback of Trump-era policies like border wall construction and the Migrant Protection Protocols. Republicans immediately pointed to the footage as proof that the Biden strategy is not working.
