A staggering new report shows just how much destruction Democrat policies cause, and reveals the extent of the damage done to border security by the Biden administration.
Joe Biden‘s campaign promises of amnesty and ceasing construction of the border wall were a magnet for illegal immigrations, drug trafficking, sex trafficking, and cartels.
According to a new report, there are currently more than 4,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant children in Border Patrol Custody. They are arriving in greater numbers than predicted, and it is creating a serious problem.
The “shelters” that these children are held in were operating at a limited capacity to allow for COVID-related social distancing, but as the number of children crossing the border unaccompanied began to increase dramatically, the Biden administration decided to allow the facilities to open at 100 percent capacity.
As The GOP Times reported, “While not allowing schools and businesses to open at 100% capacity, the Biden administration is now allowing illegal immigrant detention facilities to open at 100%. The CDC reportedly approved the decision, reversing their previous order to only open the facilities at 50% capacity to allow for social distancing measures.”
According to the Daily Mail, one facility in Texas has reached 729 percent capacity just three weeks after opening “amid a surge of crossings on the southern border.”
This new report shows that the Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis is poor, to say the least. Even Democrats are calling them out.

One Biden official even had to admit that the administration was at fault for the surge.
“We’ve seen surges before. Surges tend to respond to hope, and there was significant hope for a more humane policy after four years of pent-up demand. So I don’t know if I would call that a coincidence,” Roberta Jacobsen, a special advisor to Biden, admitted during a White House briefing.
The situation at the border has become so bad that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had to be called in.
“I am grateful for the exceptional talent and responsiveness of the FEMA team,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement. “I am incredibly proud of the agents of the Border Patrol, who have been working around the clock in difficult circumstances to take care of children temporarily in our care. Yet, as I have said many times, a Border Patrol facility is no place for a child.”
“It’s going to be very difficult to stop this,” one Homeland Security official told CNN, referring to the spike in unaccompanied children arriving at the border.
The Bottom Line
Joe Biden is failing at one of the most important duties of the president: securing our borders. But, that’s what Democrats want. They want the borders to be open because they want to look like the more “humane” party that helps the poor and disadvantaged. Plus, they want to import more Democrat voters. Biden should have known that his promises on the campaign trail were basically an invitation for more illegal immigrants to make the dangerous — often deadly — journey across our border.
