President Biden’s border crisis is worsening. There’s no telling what happens next.

Because border patrol officials just gave President Biden truly devastating news for the nation.

Before Joe Biden assumed office, border crossings each month were somewhere between 25-75,000 a month, depending on which month you take a look at. It was particularly low at the height of the 2020 pandemic panic, but went back up to normal levels around 50-70,000 a month after that. This is too much in the opinion of immigration experts and even Donald Trump would agree.

When Joe Biden took office, that number skyrocketed. Not only that, but it continues to skyrocket and is showing no signs of slowing down. Almost immediately after taking office, border crossings jumped up to an eye-watering 175,000 per month. At one point at the end of 2023, there were 300,000 border crossings in a single month.

To make matters worse, the different types of migrants crossing is more varied than ever, making it more difficult for Border Patrol agents to process them and handle the logistical nightmare that’s been brewing for years now and it’s just now coming to a head.

Between 2014 and 2021, the year with the most asylum applications being sent in from immigrants wanting to cross the border was a little over 200,000 in 2019. In 2023 alone there were 487,518 asylum applications filed. That’s just an absurd amount of asylum applications.

It’s truly impossible to get a grip on all of this influx of immigrants wanting to cross the border, which is why many are saying that Joe Biden has to bear responsibility for the border crisis that is worsening.

The most concerning part about this has to do with national security, however. The latest reports from the Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) are giving everyone a reason to be seriously concerned about what’s about to happen.

The U.S. has experienced a dramatic increase in the number of suspected terrorists entering the country illegally, with figures skyrocketing over 2,500% compared to the previous administration. This surge, detailed in the latest federal data, highlights significant security concerns at the nation’s borders.

Between fiscal years 2021 and 2024, Border Patrol agents apprehended 367 individuals whose names appeared on the terror watch list at the southern and northern borders, according to Customs and Border Protection data. This figure represents a substantial rise from the 14 suspected terrorists apprehended during fiscal years 2017 to 2020, marking an approximate 2,521% increase.

The trend is particularly pronounced at the U.S.-Mexico border. In the first seven months of the current fiscal year alone, there were 80 encounters with suspected terrorists, compared to only 11 during President Donald Trump’s administration from fiscal years 2017 to 2020.

Several high-profile cases have drawn attention to the potential dangers posed by these security lapses. One such case involved Mohammad Kharwin, an Afghan national who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border near San Ysidro, California, in 2023. Initially placed in a government monitoring program, Kharwin was soon removed from this oversight and remained free in the country for nearly a year before authorities linked him to Hezbo-e-Islmi, a U.S.-designated terrorist organization.

Another incident involved a Pakistani national who crossed the southern border in November 2023 and was identified as a match on the terror watch list. Although initially placed in the Alternatives to Detention program, this individual was soon returned to physical detention.

The latest data also points to a significant rise in the number of Chinese nationals illegally entering the U.S., which Republican lawmakers argue poses another security threat. In the first seven months of fiscal year 2024, 27,583 Chinese nationals unlawfully crossed into the U.S., surpassing the total of 24,125 for the entire fiscal year 2023 and far exceeding the 1,987 recorded in fiscal year 2022.

These findings underscore the ongoing challenges and potential risks associated with border security and immigration enforcement. The substantial increase in suspected terrorists and the growing number of illegal entries, particularly from nations like China, highlight the urgent need for robust and effective measures to safeguard national security.

Lawmakers and security officials are likely to intensify their focus on addressing these vulnerabilities and ensuring that appropriate resources and policies are in place to manage and mitigate these threats.

Former President Donald Trump’s resurgence in popularity to lead the field in the presidential election race can largely be summarized by Joe Biden’s incompetency driving voters into Trump’s corner. Immigration, no doubt, has played a major factor in that.
