The more we learn about the true dimensions of the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, the worse it is. Now, a new report says in the last few months, U.S. authorities have encountered illegal border crossers not just from Mexico, or the Northern Triangle countries of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, but from 160 nations around the globe. People are coming to Mexico from the most distant spots on the planet in order to cross illegally into the United States, confident President Joe Biden will let them stay. And Biden is doing just that.

“More than 12,500 Ecuadoreans were encountered in March, up from 3,568 in January,” The New York Times’ Miriam Jordan reports. “Nearly 4,000 Brazilians and more than 3,500 Venezuelans were intercepted, up from just 300 and 284, respectively, in January. The numbers in coming months are expected to be higher.”

Biden is unfit to serve the American people. He is choosing party over law and Citizens

This future votes for the dem party and will drop wages for low-middle income Americans

Fear mongering. This happens every year and under every president. It’s called seasonal working. And people entering through Mexico is nothing unusual either. It’s just the Republicans trying to politicize everything. Check the CBP website for facts.

I meant to say people entering through Mexico from other countries is nothing unusual.

Just reading your comments. Drugs, criminals etc is fear mongering?? Ask the families who lose Loved ones. They may disagree

Oh please. You’re trying too hard to make me the bad guy. What about the opioid crisis? Illegal immigrants cause that too? Classic straw man move turning to drugs and death and destruction by illegal immigrants.
