Biden Opens America’s Borders

Biden’s low approval ratings are not due to circumstances beyond his control. They are due to deliberate policy choices that are damaging the country we love.

Despite setbacks, Biden in sheer numbers has made more changes than Trump to federal immigrationpolicy with many reversals to the way the U.S. enforces immigration law.

Biden issued 296 executive actions during his first year compared to 86 in Trump’s first year and 472 over his 4-year term, according to analysts from the non-partisan Migration PolicyInstitute.


Nonetheless, ICE arrests have been cut in half compared to the final year of the Trump presidency and the detained immigrant population is the lowest since 1999, according to MPI.


The year was marked with a historic level of unauthorized border crossing attempts which hit a peak of 213,000 in the month of July, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. More than a quarter of those encounters with immigration authorities involved repeat offenders.


Politically, views of Biden’s approach to immigration have dragged down his overall approval ratings over the past year. A Gallup poll released last November found just 31 percent of Americans approve of his handling of immigration issues.

    Two months ago DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted more than two million illegal aliens would have crossed the border by Jan 1, 2022. To put that into perspective, that is about 3.5 times the population of Milwaukee, about 8 times the population of Madison, or 2/5 the population of the entire state of Wisconsin.

    A few days ago we learned the TSA allows illegals to use arrest and deportation warrants as ID to board airliners and fly around the country.

    The cost of the estimated 14.5 million illegals to US taxpayers is $134 billion per year, and growing.
