BIDEN-HARRIS BORDER CRISIS

Biden-Harris Border Crisis Worsens

  • While Democrats fail to protect the American people, border state Republican governors are stepping up to protect their constituents.
  • Joe Biden and Kamala Harris refuse to stop the border crisis they created – and it’s worse than ever.
  • Harris has been border czar for 100 days and there has been little to no progress on securing our border and keeping our country safe.
  • For months, Harris treated the crisis at the border like it is a joke:
  • Because of the Biden-Harris border crisis and open border policies our communities are less safe.
    • Residents of border towns are scared to leave their homes due to surging border crime.
  • Numbers show the border crisis has only gotten worse.
    • In May, 180,034 illegal immigrants were apprehended trying to cross the border – the highest one-month total in 21 years.
    • The number of unaccompanied migrant children encountered at the border per day is increasing.
      • CBP agents recently encountered 530 unaccompanied migrant children in one day, up from the average 300 daily encounters.
    • CBP Agents are arresting nearly 6,000 illegal immigrants a day – that’s the highest number in two decades.
  • Border apprehensions have increased every single month that Biden has been president.
    • 711,784 migrants have been caught attempting to illegally cross the border in Biden’s first five months in office.
    • 88,998 migrants who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border have been released into the United States since Biden took office
      • Just 18 people who were let go during President Trump’s final full month in office.
  • Human traffickers and drug smugglers are taking advantage of the Biden-Harris open border policies.
    • More deadly fentanyl has been seized so far in 2021 than throughout all of 2020.
    • Intelligence officials have warned individuals with ties to terrorist groups are taking advantage of the “porous border.”
