    Surge Summary: As Joe Biden seeks to return to previous, senseless immigration policy, the indicators down at America’s southern border are going in the wrong direction. The costs could be catastrophic for the nation.

    by Gary Bauer

    There is a brewing crisis at the southern border, and the Biden Administration is doing its best to downplay it.  [Monday], Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas denied there was a crisis at the border.  He told reporters, “I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing.”

    Well, the numbers don’t lie, and they tell a very different story.

    • Border crossings doubled this January to 78,000 illegal crossings compared to last January.
    • Also in January, Border Patrol agents took in nearly 6,000 unaccompanied minors at the border.  They are now expecting 13,000 to arrive by May.
    • Former Obama officials are predicting, based on current trends, that more than 1 million migrants will attempt to cross the southern border this year.

    The Biden White House insists that it is not keeping children in cages.  But when pressed [Monday] why there are no photos of the current conditions at child detention facilities, reporters were told that they can’t tour the facilities due to the pandemic.  That sounds like a coverup to me.

    Here’s something else the left doesn’t want you to know:  According to an analysis of government data, one in five federal prisoners is an illegal alien.

    Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson looked at data from the Government Accountability Office from 2011 to 2016. She found that more than 700,000 illegal aliens were imprisoned in the U.S., charged with 7.5 million offenses.  The charges involved:

    • 1 million drug crimes.
    • 500,000 assaults.
    • 133,800 sex offenses.
    • 24,200 kidnappings.
    • 33,300 homicide-related offenses.
    • 1,500 terrorism-related crimes.

    The cost to the taxpayers to keep these criminal aliens behind bars:  $15 billion.

    If we were serious about controlling our borders, very few of these crimes would have happened and thousands of Americans never would have been victimized.  Border security isn’t about xenophobia or bigotry.  It’s just common sense.
