Former President Donald Trump made more headway in controlling the U.S. southern border than any other Commander-in-Chief in modern U.S. history.
Unfortunately, it didn’t take President Joe Biden long to make an absolute mess of America’s border security.
Now the Biden Administration’s latest admission on the number of border crossers they’ve released into America will have you seeing red.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has been making the headlines a lot lately and for all the wrong reasons.
His department announced the launch of a Disinformation Governance Board to regulate what is “true” and what is not in America.
And he’s also said he’s considering using Veteran Affairs funding to instead provide services for illegal aliens.

And now, in an interview with Bret Baier on Fox News Channel, Sec. Mayorkas admitted to the startling number of illegals the Biden Administration has released into the interior of the United States.
According to Mayorkas, since President Biden took the reins inside the Oval Office, somewhere between 1.2 and 1.44 million illegal aliens have been let loose into our country.
Furthermore, that number includes at least 836,000 illegal aliens, 207,000 unaccompanied alien children, and between 200,000 and 400,000 border crossers who evaded the Border Patrol.
To put that massive number into perspective, that’s more than the population in nine U.S. states plus Washington DC: Wyoming (581,075), Vermont (623,251), District of Columbia (714,153), Alaska (724,357), North Dakota (770,026), South Dakota (896,581), Delaware (990,334), Rhode Island (1,061,509), Montana (1,085,004) and Maine (1,354,522).
“Is it the objective of the Biden Administration to sharply reduce the total number of illegal immigrants coming across the southern borders,” Baier asked Mayorkas.
“It is the objective of the Biden Administration to make sure we have safe, legal, and orderly pathways for individuals to be able to access our legal system,” Mayorkas answered.
Safe, legal, and orderly, are interesting objectives interesting considering President Joe Biden’s insistence on ending the Trump era Remain in Mexico policy.
Under Donald Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy, border crossers were sent back to Mexico when apprehended.
The end of Remain in Mexico will put undue pressure on America’s already overwhelmed and underfunded border patrol agencies.
If the Remain in Mexico policy is lifted, illegals who claim they’re seeking asylum will be let into America to await their asylum hearings, which can often take five or more years to arrive.
Statistics from the US Department of Justice indicate that out of every 100 aliens who claimed “a credible fear of persecution” between 2008 and 2019, only 14 were granted asylum.
Nearly 1.5-million illegals have entered the U.S. under Joe Biden, and American families need to brace for another surge following the removal of Remain in Mexico.
