Are you concerned about rising numbers of illegal border crossings?

    I am not concerned about more people migrating into the United States, but I am concerned about how racist, xenophobic people and especially lawmakers are responding to the high number of migrants. People are fleeing horrific conditions in their home countries, risking sexual assault, serious injuries, and even death to come to this country that supposedly stands for freedom, yet people like Texas Governor Greg Abbott are drafting discriminatory legislation to kick them out and force them back into dangerous situations. The United States needs to abolish ICE and restructure its immigration process to make it more efficient so that people don’t have to come into the country illegally and can actually find refuge here.

    The Texas Three Stooges need to pass Immigration Legislation to address the illegal immigration problem at ALL points of ENTRY not only the Southern border. Stop dicking around and get to work.

    Action must be taken now. Protecting the borders is the number one duty of any government. This fsilure is wholly unacceptable.

    Why the heck shouldn't I be concerned or worried, pray tell? U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Friday released its operational statistics for the month of June, and the report revealed that it was the fourth consecutive month in which apprehensions of people attempting to enter the country illegally continued at the highest level in over two decades. CBP apprehended 188,829 unauthorized immigrants at the Southern border in June, increasing from 180,034 in May; 178,854 in April; and 173,337 in March. The last four-month period in which CBP enforcement actions were over 170,000 each month was January to April 2000. The month of June pushed the number of CBP enforcement actions at the Southern border to 1,119,204 for the fiscal year 2021 to date, a figure which exceeds the 977,509 in FY2019.

    Here are the latest figures for the Coronavirus since January 20th at noontime to present 180 days. Cases 9,509,610 Deaths 340,252. President Trump in 13 months had Cases 24,717,808 Deaths 274,761. This was with no vaccines until 38 days before end of term. Comrade dear leader Beijing Biden has had the 3 vaccines from day one. He continues to leave the southern border wide open with no quarantine or testing. 1,187,000 illegal aliens have crossed sine January 20th at noontime in just 180 days.

    Taken at face value it would appear that authorities are doing a better job. The big question is whether or not the increase is them doing a good job or an increase of people on the other side of the border wanting in.

    An open door policy by the Harris-Biden admin has created an emergency situation for American's at the border. While the mainstream media dismisses the situation as they do with most factually based issues, they should have the temerity to send a reporter and camera crew to spots like Del Rio or the Rio Grande Valley. So far this year the Border Patrol in Del Rio has caught almost 150,000 illegals. Of those, they've seen a 1400 percent increase (year-over-year) in arrests of illegals that have sex-related crime convictions of record. In Uvalde, Border Patrol reports a 900% increase in train hoppers that if left unchecked will disembark and assimilate into the populace of San Antonio. They bring criminal and even gang related backgrounds, lawlessness and COVID with them. This is a crisis brought about by illegit Joe's incompetence, not his sense of humanity. So while you're sitting on the sofa in Ohio or Pennsylvania with your laptop deflecting from reality, consider the circumstance dropped like on anvil on other Americans. People with kids and livelihoods to protect from aggressive illegals being welcomed by a derelict administration more interested in protecting illegals that American citizens. Imagine what it must be like to have to pack a gun every day anytime you go outside. Or that children can't be left to play in their own yard without supervision for fear they'll be snatched. Over and over again those posting to this site prove my point about liberal progressivism - it's either a cult or a mental illness. There's your sign.

    Every illegal immigrant is going to cost taxpayers a lot of money. Some of them will become American citizens and work. I'm pretty sure most will be a drain on the system. Meaning every citizen who pays taxes will paying part of them to support people who do not legally belong here.

    With a wide-open border the Biden administration is breaking the oath they took to protect American people from all adversaries both foreign and domestic. By not stopping the flood of immigrants, with not testing for Covid, no information on who they are as to their criminal record or health, they are exposing all of us to things we don't want in this nation. Just before reading this question, I was listening to a podcast about the drug overdose problem and the increased number of children dying from drugs pouring over our border. While Border Patrol is rounding up border crossers in one location the cartels are bringing in more drugs than have EVER come across the border. We are losing way too many to this poison! This is one reason I support building the wall. Completing the wall and maintaining the wall. Shame on any lawmaker or President who will allow this to happen!

    It is WAY PAST TIME to finish the border wall and shut down the massive invasion of illegals. You are worrying about all Americans getting vaccinated for Covid, yet are salting communities with Covid positive or untested individuals who illegally entered our country. WHY?? Closing the border will also reduce human trafficking, illegal drugs, and needless deaths of those who did not survive the journey to the border. It would also quit enriching the cartels and coyotes.

    With the few exceptions in recent years, the GOP has had the power to legislate new immigration laws. You have done nothing to bring about meaningful change; you have no constructive ideas. Your only objective, it would seem, is to obstruct measure after measure that would be remotely advantageous to any American, other thans yourselves.

    190,000 illegals in June, the most in one month in 21 years. Every democrAT politician who is encouraging this should be arrested and charged with treason.

    The open borders policy at the southern border has produced a chaotic crisis. Social worker and law enforcement resources are strained. The Biden policy is placing a heavy burden on states at the border. Some COVID-positive undocumented immigrants are entering the country sometimes going undetected and untreated. Human smuggler coyotes and human traffickers lure people who live in desperate need and place these immigrants at great and even deadly risk. This is even greater than Donald Rumsfeld's debacle, having no plan once "winning" the Iraqi war. I am not insensitive toward undocumented immigrants and those seeking asylum. I am sad that the plan appears to be that we don't have a plan. Let everyone in, then we will figure out how to respond to this ocean need. If wishes were horses, beggers would ride.
