Media and Biden have done a terrible job in dealing with illegal immigration
For all its claims to being public spirited, the press is doing a remarkably execrable job of reporting the more relevant realities about illegal immigration, now that the U.S. border is open and a surge has followed.
Start with the entry of criminals.
The press likes to feature single moms on the go with cute toddlers, or illegal immigrants reuniting with their illegally shipped kids in tear-jerking news segments. What they don't feature are people with far more incentive to come into the U.S, now that the border is open: Criminals. People so tainted by lawbreaking with such records of harm to others that they can't come here legally even if they tried. An open border? From their own perspective, they'd be fools not to.
So here are a couple of stories about how Joe Biden's open border policies are set to hit Americans and how much of the press is keeping that out of the news:
Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector in Texas have seen a 3,166% increase in arrests of convicted sex offenders compared to the same timeframe last fiscal year -- as agents across the border continue to nab criminals with convictions for sex crimes, including against children.
The agency said that since Oct. 1, the beginning of Fiscal Year 2021, agents in the sector have arrested 95 convicted sex offenders -- making a 3,166% increase over the same timeframe last fiscal year.
Obviously, they're getting in here. The Biden administration is catching few illegal entrants and deporting even fewer. On the deportation front, the Biden administration's immigration enforcement arm, ICE, sent home fewer than 3,000 illegal aliens in April. According to the Washington Post, deportations fell to the lowest level on record in that month, a peak month for the ongoing border surge.
The number of deportations carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement last month fell to the lowest monthly level on record, a drop that comes as illegal border crossings remain at a 20-year high, according to the latest enforcement data, obtained by The Washington Post.ICE deported 2,962 immigrants in April, according to the agency. It is the first time the monthly figure has dipped below 3,000, records show. The April total is a 20 percent decline from March, when ICE deported 3,716.
President Biden and his Department of Homeland Security team have issued new rules to rein in ICE officers, who were afforded wide latitude under the Trump administration to make arrests and were encouraged to boost deportations.
It's not easy to match person-for-person as whether this latest crop of arrested rapists and child molesters got "removed" or not, many of these perverts aren't even counted in the deportation statistics because they are recent crossers, but what we do know is that far more are getting in than getting thrown out. And that once "removed," these foreign criminals are very likely to take another shot at returning because the border's still open, the Border Patrol is busy changing diapers, and people are getting in through sheer force of numbers. Why wouldn't they try again? What do they have to lose?
There is much more.
Victims of crime are paying a high price for Democrats' policy of importing bodies to help them steal House seats in reapportionment. It is a policy of collecting bodies for the next census. Biden is now trying to spread the illegals to red states to try to change the politics of those states. It is also one of the reasons why he opposes deportations.
