The International Organization for Migration has published figures this week, figures that put Biden’s broken border in a class all its own.
The UN organization ‘that provides services and advice concerning migration to governments and migrants’ has documented at least 686 deaths and disappearances on the US-Mexican border in the last year.
Considering the chaotic nature of that particular border, that is (naturally) not assumed to represent the complete number of deaths and disappearances.
The U.S.-Mexico border is the world’s deadliest land migration route, according to U.N. migration agency figures published on Tuesday, with hundreds losing their lives attempting to make perilous desert crossings.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) documented 686 deaths and disappearances among migrants on the frontier last year, but the actual figure is likely higher due missing data, including from the Texas border county coroner’s offices and the Mexican search and rescue agency.
In a landscape of sweeping desert, canyons and cactus-studded hills, migrants fall prey to heat stroke in summer and hypothermia in winter, U.S. border officials have said. Some bodies are never found.

Predictably, the lesson Dillon took away from here was that immigration should be made easier — not that we should in any way change the incentive structures (ie: asylum) that have been driving the flood of people in the first place.
People upstream of us in Panama are trying to sound the alarm that the flood of people headed North to America is ramping up to about 150% of what it has been.
Thousands of illegal migrants are flooding into Panama.

Buckle up. If NYC is already complaining about how bad they’ve got it, imagine how they’ll react once these the numbers tick up even further.
The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.
In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.
