    Surge Summary: Playing to type, President Biden is continuing to make the wrong decisions about America’s border policy – and indicators are his decisions will spell future troubles for the nation.

    by Gary Bauer

    Well, this was predictable.  There’s a surge of illegal immigration along the southern border as the Biden Administration has moved aggressively to reverse President Trump’s commonsense immigration reforms and border security measures.

    The numbers speak for themselves.  In January 2020, Border Patrol agents arrested just over 29,000 illegal aliens attempting to cross the southern border.  Last month, more than 75,000 illegal aliens were apprehended at the border.  That’s an increase of more than 150%.

    The number of unaccompanied minors is also surging – up 73% just in the Rio Grande Valley sector.  I’m sure the Biden Administration is getting the Obama “cages for kids” ready, but I’m also sure the left-wing media will never mention it.

    Meanwhile, the Biden White House knows it has a major problem on its hands and it is scrambling to catch up, which is why catch and release is back because that makes so much sense. (NOT!)

    Yes, even though American citizens were told not to attend Super Bowl parties, to wear two masks and travel to Florida may be banned, Biden is releasing illegal immigrants into the country without COVID tests.  How’s that for priorities?

    Recognizing the growing crisis on their hands, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had a message [Wednesday] for illegal immigrants thinking of coming to America.  She told migrants that “now is not the time to come” because they just haven’t had the time to set up “a humane, comprehensive process.”

    Let’s remember who we’re talking about – people attempting to enter the country illegally.  We have a “humane, comprehensive process” in place.  It’s called the legal immigration system, which already admits about one million people every year.

    Faced with this growing humanitarian and political crisis at the border, you’d think Biden might slow down a bit and stop sending mixed messages. Nope. He’s doubling down on his open borders agenda.

    [Wednesday], he issued another executive order repealing President Trump’s national border emergency because, in spite of COVID and the surging number of apprehensions, Biden has determined that Trump’s order was “unwarranted.”
