    Surge Summary: Joe Biden is claiming he’s brought the border crisis under control … but the data points and on-the-ground realities expose his happy-talk as duplicitous double-talk. His policies are catering to illegal aliens, not to America’s self-interest.

    Joe Biden raised eyebrows recently for suggesting that his administration has “gotten control” of the border crisis.  The American people clearly disagree.  A new Harvard/Harris poll finds that 80% of Americans believe the situation at the border is a crisis that demands immediate attention.

    And they’re right.  Just consider these headlines:

    “Rio Grande Sector Remains Nation’s Busiest, Over 2,200 Illegal Busts A Day”

    “Border Patrol In California Sees 51 Percent Rise In Illegal Immigrants In April”

    “Migrant ‘Got-Away’ Total Exceeds 185K This Year”

    “12 Texas Counties Declare Emergencies As Border Crisis Worsens”

    “Del Rio Border Sector Chief: Sex Offender Arrests Up Over 2,000%”

    Does any of that sound like “control” to you?

    Here’s what many still don’t understand:  Joe Biden’s idea of “control” isn’t your idea of control.

    He’s not talking about border security or controlling illegal immigration, which is expected to hit a record two million crossings this year.  He’s talking about faster processing of children and illegal migrants at the border.

    The “crisis” Biden is concerned about is that there’s a record number of illegal aliens in border detention facilities.  The “control” he’s talking about means getting them out of the detention facilities as quickly as possible, giving them access to medical care and teachers, getting them into hotels or your community even faster.

    Joe Biden and the Democrats have no intention of “controlling” who crosses the border and enters our country.  Their goal is to make it easier for them.
