    Surge Summary: One Arizona mayor is objecting to the way President Biden’s immigration policies are ravaging his town. Meanwhile, at least two Central American leaders are pointing the finger at Biden for U.S. border mayhem.

    Emergency At The Border

    Gila Bend, Arizona, is a tiny town on Interstate 8, about 70 miles southwest of Phoenix. Mayor Chris Riggs just declared a state of emergency. Why? Because his town is being overrun with illegal immigrants and surging crime.

    To make matters worse, Mayor Riggs was just informed that the Biden Administration is now dropping off even more migrants, after their brief 72-hour detentions, in his town of just 2,000 residents.

    “We have no charity organizations that can help, no non-governmental organizations that a lot of the larger cities and towns do have to assist these people,” Mayor Riggs said.  The potential costs of caring for these migrants may well exceed the town’s property tax revenues.

    Gila Bend’s experience is about to be repeated in communities all over the country because the left insists this is the “compassionate thing to do.”  And Joe Biden wants to take in two million migrants a year.

    He may get a lot more than that.  According to Gallup, 42 million people in Latin America want to migrate to the United States.  And they know Biden and the left will let them.

    In fact, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is blaming Joe Biden for creating the border crisis, as is the president of El Salvador.

    Meanwhile, Admiral Craig Faller, America’s top military officer for Central America, testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee last week.  He was pressed about the conditions there, and whether Central American governments were persecuting their citizens based on the characteristics that would qualify migrants for asylum in the United States.

    Admiral Faller replied, “I’m in lockstep with our embassies, and we’ve got great diplomats, and we don’t see systematic exploitation.”
