- The Biden administration is refusing to acknowledge that the situation at the border is a crisis, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
- The author of the article visited the border with Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales and witnessed the crisis firsthand, including piles of trash from earlier crossings and footprints from people who had broken the law to enter the country.
- The crisis is having a devastating impact on American families, small businesses, and taxpayers, and is exacerbating national security concerns.
On a recent trip to the U.S.-Mexico border, an author accompanied Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales and witnessed a crisis that the Biden administration has refused to acknowledge. Standing on the edge of the Rio Grande in Del Rio, the author saw “the next wave of illegal immigrants…going to come over at any moment.”
The author also witnessed piles of trash from earlier crossings, including baby formula and baby shoes, and footprints from people who had broken the law to come to the United States.
The impact of the border crisis is devastating for American families, small businesses, and taxpayers. Families who live near the border are grieving loved ones killed by car accidents involving illegal immigrants.
Ranchers and farmers are struggling to repair damage to their property caused by illegal immigrants. Legal immigrants who waited their turn to come to the United States are frustrated that their businesses and lives are endangered by those who break the rules.
The crisis is also putting an unfair burden on taxpayers, who are paying for handouts for people who should not receive them.
Moreover, the border crisis is exacerbating national security concerns. Nearly 100 suspected terrorists were arrested attempting to cross the southern border last year, which is about nine times more than during the previous administration’s four years.
This year, it is likely that this record will be broken. Securing the border is essential for national security, but the Biden administration’s failure to address the crisis is making America less safe.
In conclusion, the author’s trip to the border with Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales highlighted the devastating impact of the border crisis on American families, small businesses, and taxpayers, as well as national security concerns.
The Biden administration’s refusal to acknowledge the crisis is exacerbating the situation, and real leadership is needed to end the crisis.
