The Biden administration is refusing to own up to their failed border policy.
Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas went on the Sunday Shows and laid the blame for the surge of illegal border crossers at the feet of the Trump administration.
The Biden administration has rolled back every border protection policy that was put in place by the Trump administration and coyotes and desperate economic migrants are getting the message.
One of the biggest illegal immigration problems under the Obama administration, unaccompanied minors, is back and doesn’t look like it’s going away anytime soon. The Biden administration has said that all minors that cross the border without their parents or guardians should be treated humanely and be allowed to remain in the U.S. to make their claim of asylum. This is basically an “anchor baby” program but for children that have already been born. And don’t be fooled, many of these “unaccompanied minors” are teens, not kindergarteners. Back in 2014, then-Vice President Joe Biden said that between 75-80% are traveling with human smugglers.
Fox News host Chris Wallace immediately questioned Secretary Mayorkas on the Biden administration’s policy on unaccompanied minors which has spiked under the new administration as the new “compassionate” process allows children to stay in the United States.
When asked why reporters can’t see the facilities, Mayorkas said that it wasn’t safe because of COVID, but two months in, they’re “working on it.”
This is the most disingenuous sort of claptrap.
The Trump administration was securing the border which was a distinct change from previous administrations that just tried to slow the leak. The Trump admin stopped the “catch-and-release” policy under Obama, and the remain in Mexico policy as well as his agreements with other countries allowed those claiming asylum to do so from their home countries instead of taking the perilous journey across the border in the hands of cartels who treated people as commodities.
All of that is gone under Biden and business is great for the cartels. They’ve even developed a colored bracelet system to keep track of migrants, show payment status, and protect them from gangs and extortion.

In a bit of a surprise move, ABC’s Martha Raddatz grilled Secretary Mayorkas for the situation at the border.
Secretary Mayorkas reiterated that the situation was because he says that the immigration system was “dismantled in its entirety by the Trump administration.”
“It is especially challenging and difficult now, because the entire system under United States law that has been in place throughout administrations of both parties was dismantled in its entirety by the Trump administration,” Mayorkas told Raddatz Sunday morning. “So we are rebuilding the system as we address the needs of vulnerable children who arrive at our borders.”
Just weeks prior to Sunday’s interview, Mayorkas said during a press briefing on March 1 that the message to migrants wasn’t to come, but not to come yet. The secretary’s rhetoric has seemed to toughen since then.
Mayorkas reiterated that the border is not open and that migrants should not come to the southern border — especially in the midst of the pandemic.
“Now is not the time to come,” Mayorkas stressed. “Do not come. This journey is dangerous. We are building safe, orderly and humane ways to address the needs of vulnerable children, do not come.”

That’s talking out of both sides of his mouth. It’s basically, “Don’t come…but you can send your kids.”
President Trump reconfigured the handling of illegal border crossers that has been getting a nod and a wink by both parties for decades. The only thing that he “dismantled” was the incentives for people to make bogus asylum claims that jam up the system for those who go through the process legally.
Former President Trump didn’t let that pile of B.S. slide.
STATEMENT BY DONALD J. TRUMP, 45TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA:
We proudly handed the Biden Administration the most secure border in history. All they had to do was keep this smooth-running system on autopilot. Instead, in the span of a just few weeks, the Biden Administration has turned a national triumph into a national disaster.
They are in way over their heads and taking on water fast.
The pathetic, clueless performance of Secretary Mayorkas on the Sunday Shows today was a national disgrace. His self-satisfied presentation—in the middle of the massive crisis he helped engineer—is yet more proof he is incapable of leading DHS. Even someone of Mayorkas’ limited abilities should understand that if you provide Catch-and-Release to the world’s illegal aliens then the whole world will come.
Furthermore, the Mayorkas Gag Order on our Nation’s heroic border agents and ICE officers should be the subject of an immediate congressional investigation. But it’s clear they are engaged in a huge cover-up to hide just how bad things truly are.
The only way to end the Biden Border Crisis is for them to admit their total failure and adopt the profoundly effective, proven Trump policies.
They must immediately complete the wall, which can be done in a matter of weeks—they should never have stopped it.
They are causing death and human tragedy. In addition to the obvious, drugs are pouring into our country at record levels from the Southern Border, not to mention human and sex trafficking.
This Administration’s reckless policies are enabling and encouraging crimes against humanity. Our Country is being destroyed!
