Supposedly, the motivation behind the Biden Border surge is an expression of humanity toward those suffering on the other side of our Southern border. But at what cost?
Democrats always have their ‘grand plans’ on how to make the world a better place. It’s amazing how frequently ‘making the world a better place’ happens to be exactly the same as building systemic changes that make the public more dependent on government largesse, and more likely to support a Democrat status quo.
That’s just a happy coincidence for them, surely, and has nothing to do with ulterior motives.
But when you are introducing a change in policy, the alleged benefits should be measured against the potential harm. And there is plenty of harm to go around with Biden’s Busted border policies.
Because these ‘refugees’ have been incentivized to bypass ports of lawful entry, they need to enlist the help of criminal organizations. This help doesn’t come cheap.
“Trafficking is a multibillion-dollar industry,” said former Tucson Border Patrol Chief Roy Villareal, who retired in December after 30 years with the agency. “A lot of these vulnerable populations use their life savings. Some are essentially indentured servants and they’re working off this debt for a long period of time. In other cases, some of these migrants are asked to transport narcotics or some form of crime to work off a different part of their debt.” –FoxNews
In dealing with criminal elements, they are exposed to harm. This could be physical dangers like drowning in the Rio Grande, or dying of the various dangers in the desert, or it could be the unspeakable horrors and sexual exploitation experienced by a significant number of even young teenage girls making the trip. Others have been packed into unsafe improvised modes of transportation and smuggled over the border in transport trucks, or lawless jaunts driving over gaps in the border fence, like this one: BIDEN BODYCOUNT: Illegal Smuggling Leaves 15 Dead In Horrific Highway Crash
Cue Obama’s single tear, ‘if it saves just one life’…
One life, eh? Hold that thought.
Cartels aren’t stupid. They’re multi-billion-dollar businesses. When there’s a change in policy, they’re in there like white on rice looking for a way to turn that to their advantage.
Biden’s Broken Border policy has been a big-time boon for the criminal cartels.
Not only have they been making gobs of money on the back of every single person shuffled across that border, but the massive buzz of activity has also been making their OTHER criminal ventures much easier to complete.
Before you blow that off as no big deal, keep in mind who these cartels really are. Did you happen to see the ‘mainstream’ news reporting on this story from Joe’s first week in office? Less than an hour’s drive from downtown El Paso, the criminal cartels in Mexico did this: BUILD THE WALL: Cartel War Leaves 19 Torched Bodies In Mexican Border Town
We ran a story in March of 2019 that identified the six cities in the world with the highest murder rate, and five of those cities were in Mexico.
Do you think those cities will suddenly become safer now that Joe Biden has been gift-wrapping them a policy granting them $14Million a day?
Or that Joe’s policies are keeping law enforcement so busy with scooping up unaccompanied teenage boys crossing the border, and other civilians that they can’t keep track of the supply lines of organized criminal shuttling all kinds of contraband over our border onto our streets.
It could be drugs, or weapons, or human smuggling.
We’ve even nabbed some illegal entrants from Iran on that Southern border. Do you really suppose they would have any scruples that would prevent them from smuggling terrorists over the border if the price was right?
A slew of experts and well-placed law enforcement sources have told DailyMail.com, however, that notorious drug gangs including the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas are seizing upon the reforms to ratchet up human trafficking operations.
As one source told us: ‘The cartels have realized that under Biden there is serious money to be made from people trafficking without any of the distribution issues you face with narcotics. People are the new dope.’
…But as Jaeson Jones, a retired captain from the Texas Department of Public Safety chillingly reveals, it’s almost certain the cartels had spies – known as ‘halcones’ (hawks) – watching our every move from both sides of the river.
‘I’m going to be very frank with you: when you’re down there the cartel knows you are there. They are watching you as soon as you leave the highway, feeding information back to Mexico,’ he warns.
‘They control everything on both sides of that river and communicate back and forth daily on encrypted radios.’ —DailyMail

Whatever Biden is hoping to gain with his broken border policy, it is coming at a terrible terrible price.
But Biden and Pelosi, behind their high fences, will never feel the weight of the burden they are putting on the backs of hopeful immigrants, and the nation who is on the receiving end of whatever they are dragging in across the border along with them.
