Meanwhile, the number of immigrants has skyrocketed in recent weeks as Biden rolled back on a number of Trump-era policies. The Biden administration has struggled to house the rising number of migrants and has come under immense scrutiny for it.
However, Biden claimed his administration has it under control.
DHS Secretary Mayorkas said, “We are on pace to encounter more individuals on the southwest border than we have in the last 20 years” & Border Patrol agents are apprehending 4,500-6,000 illegal aliens per day.
This is a crisis that the Biden admin refuses to acknowledge.

“We’re in the process of doing it now, including making sure that we can reestablish what existed before,” Biden claimed. “Which was [that] they can stay in place and make their case from their home country.”
