The term “arrests” is obviously misleading. The Biden admin practices “catch and release”. Its arrests often lead to the illegals being flown at night to different parts of the country or put on buses for relocation. Still even the New York Times is forced to acknowledge the record.
U.S. authorities detained more than 1.7 million migrants along the Mexico border during the 2021 fiscal year that ended in September, and arrests by the Border Patrol soared to the highest levels since 1986, according to unpublished U.S. Customs and Border Protection data obtained by The Washington Post.
Illegal crossings began rising last year but skyrocketed in the months after President Biden took office.
What happened in 1986? The Immigration Reform and Control Act in which Democrats faked promises of immigration security and border control, along with amnesty for illegal aliens.
Threats of enforcement and the possibility of an amnesty, real or only promised, has been repeatedly shown to boost illegal alien migrations.
During the transition, Biden said he wanted to move cautiously on immigration policy and avoid ending up “with 2 million people on our border.”
He’s 300,000 illegal alien invaders away from that number.
Many migrants have told reporters they opted to make the risky journey north, at great cost and considerable danger, with the belief that Biden would allow them to stay.
You don’t say.
