    Surge Summary: President Joe Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security has finally, essentially, admitted the U.S. is currently facing a crisis at its southern border. This was NOT the case when Donald Trump was in office and his immigration policies were in effect. The current mess can be laid comprehensively at the feet of newly re-installed Democratic measures.

    The crisis at the southern border is increasingly out of control.  While Biden Administration officials refuse to utter the word “crisis,” Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas conceded this week that Border Patrol agents are being “overwhelmed” by the migrant surge.

    Here’s what everyone must understand:  The Democrats own this crisis.

    Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaigned on amnesty.  They promised free healthcare for illegal immigrants.  And they have gutted the border security policies that President Donald Trump put into place.

    The results were predictable.  With deportations down 60% since Biden took office, migrants throughout Mexico and Central America know that our border is now wide open.

    Yesterday, former President Trump responded to this unnecessary travesty.  He said:

    “When I was President, our Southern border was in great shape – stronger, safer, and more secure than ever before. We ended Catch-and-Release, shut down asylum fraud, and crippled the vicious smugglers, drug dealers, and human traffickers. . .  Our country is being destroyed at the Southern border, a terrible thing to see!”

    I’m glad Trump is speaking up.  Every Republican should be.

    And the state of Texas is stepping up as well.  Governor Greg Abbott has ordered the Texas National Guard to the border.  That’s a much better use of the National Guard than the ongoing “occupation” of Washington, D.C.
