(ThePatriotSource.com)- President Joe Biden might still be refusing to admit that there’s a crisis on the southern border, but the Department of Homeland Security isn’t.
This week, the DHS released a statement acknowledging the massive influx of illegal immigrants pouring over the southern border of the United States and reveals that FEMA is now supporting the department’s handling of the problem.
“Homeland Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas has directed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to support a government-wide effort over the next 90 days to safely receive, shelter, and transfer unaccompanied children who make the dangerous journey to the U.S. southwest border,” the statement read.
When was the last time an emergency agency was deployed for something that, as President Biden suggests, isn’t an emergency?
The DHS said that the federal government is currently managing the “arrival of record numbers of individuals, including unaccompanied children, at the southwest border.”
The statement revealed that the number of apprehension of illegal aliens at the border has been rising since April 2020, though President Biden’s promise of granting amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens was not listed as a reason why. Instead, Biden’s DHS said that the number has been increasing “due to ongoing violence, natural disasters, food insecurity, and poverty in the Northern Triangle countries of Central America.”
In February, Border Patrol agents apprehended some 100,000 illegal aliens at the southern border – roughly three times as many as in October, during the Trump administration.
In that time, President Joe Biden was elected and entered the White House after formally pledging amnesty to every single illegal alien in the United States. An amnesty bill prepared by Biden in February would grant as many as 22 illegal aliens amnesty with a five-year path to citizenship.
Maybe that’s why record numbers are pouring in…
And if President Biden is responsible for this record influx of illegals, then he is also responsible for the huge number of children being detained in overcrowded facilities that the Democrats previously called “concentration camps.”
CNN reported how lawyers from the National Center for Youth spoke to a dozen children in Donna, Texas, who were “terrified, crying and worried about not being able to speak with family members.”
A DHS official also told CNN that the facility was “significantly overcrowded” and that the “number of kids is alarming.”
Imagine if this happened on Trump’s watch.
