Numbers like these justify Allen West’s use of words like ‘invasion’ to describe our non-existent Southern Border.
We have the latest numbers for those illegally crossing the Southern Border. There were over 200,000 of them.
Democrats dismissing numbers like this flooding into the country every month as anything OTHER than an unmitigated crisis must mean that we’ve finally nailed down those long-standing issues of homelessness, unemployment, and crime in our major cities right? Why else would we be so blaze about numbers like this one?
How bad is the problem? Here are the official numbers, which (obviously) will not account for got-aways.
The number of migrants attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border has surged in recent weeks as the U.S. prepares for even larger numbers with the expected lifting of a pandemic-era order that turned away asylum seekers.
Immigration authorities stopped migrants 221,303 times along the Southwest border in March, a 34% increase from the month earlier and the highest in nearly two decades.

With midterms right around the corner, and Biden openly discussing dropping the one tool the CBP has had in their toolbox to slow the flood of people streaming over the border, even Democrats are getting jumpy, and opposing it.
Biden, for his part, has been leading from behind by taking both sides of the issue.
First, he indicated it was being lifted. Now? He’s being pressured to reconsider.
Whichever decision he makes, someone in his party will be pissed with him over it.
Democrats in Congress are joining Republicans to battle the Biden administration’s plan to end a Trump-era policy of turning away migrants at the border.
To date, nine Senate Democrats and a prominent congressman from a Texas border district have urged President Joe Biden not to end the pandemic health policy Title 42, as promised on May 23. Under the policy, at the recommendation of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, border authorities have turned away the majority of people who sought asylum at ports of entry or crossed the border illegally since March 2020.
Centrist Democrats and those up for reelection in November may have taken a hint from polls that show the public is upset with the administration’s handling of the border and chosen to inch away from Biden. More than half, 56%, of poll respondents oppose ending Title 42, according to an April 6 Morning Consult/Politico survey . The results make Biden’s decision his “most unpopular decision so far.”
The conclusion of Title 42 could create an optics nightmare for Democrats months before voters go to the polls, as well as a national security concern. Homeland security officials anticipate as many as 18,000 people a day could be encountered trying to enter the United States in the six weeks after Title 42 ends, far more than the several thousand encountered per day at present. —WashingtonExaminer
Axios lays out the difficult path Biden’s administration has to navigate:
President Biden’s inner circle has been discussing delaying the repeal of Title 42 border restrictions, now set to end May 23, according to a source with direct knowledge of the internal discussion.
Why it matters: The White House is looking for ways to buy time to avoid a massive influx of migrants that would add to already-historic border numbers. That already endangers Democratic incumbents in states that could decide the Senate majority in November.
Biden officials recognize they’re in a jam: moderate Democrats are pounding on them to delay the repeal but doing so would inflame the party’s progressive base. That includes members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, who are scheduled to meet with the president next Monday. —Axios
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
