After a federal judge lifted the restrictions on the border, US Homeland Security officials said they have a plan and are able to control the situation.
In April, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said the agency would implement a plan to address the border. The plan included deploying more resources and technology to the border. According to Fox News, the plan also aimed to increase processing efficiency and lessen the likelihood of overcrowding.
According to the plan, the agency would process and release as many illegals as possible. This would involve minimal vetting for criminal and terrorists.
In April, the agency estimated that about 18,000 illegals would illegally enter the country each day after the restrictions were lifted.
A congressman from a key border district warned that the end of the program could cause a migration crisis. He also dismissed the administration's claims that it has a plan to address the issue.
In an interview, Congressman Tony Gonzales of Texas said he was not sure what the administration was planning to do to address the border. He noted that his district was already "batten down the hatches" as a hurricane approached.
“Their plan is essentially to let them know that this is happening,” he said.
In response to the growing number of illegals entering the country, Mayorkas said the agency would step up the penalties for those who try to avoid detection.
In May, a record number of illegals entered the country and were not apprehended. More than 73,000 of them were classified as "gotaways," which is an all-time high. Despite the seriousness of the situation, the media decided not to report on it.
According to Congressman Gonzalez, the number of illegals at the border has been increasing since a judge ruled that Title 42 could be lifted on December 21.
According to the El Paso Sector, the number of illegal aliens has increased by 257% in the past year. Unless the Biden administration stops its course, the situation will only get worse.
He suggested that the government implement laws already on the books to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the country. One of the ways to do this is to expand the number of flights that are available to repatriate the illegal immigrants.
When the situation gets so bad that it becomes the main news story, Biden will be wishing he took this matter more seriously. Republicans in Congress will begin holding hearings to explain how the country will be affected by the growing number of illegals.
