Donald Trump was scorned for his immigration policies. But this is exactly the kind of thing he was preventing.
By having tough immigration policies, you are telling people we are not going to take them, and so they don’t come and end up in squalid conditions.
President Biden’s message is just the opposite.
These immigrants are poor, but they are not stupid. They know that that Biden’s policies are more lenient and so they are flocking here. And now there is a developing crisis at the border.
But since these tent cities are run by Democrats, nobody will care.
According to the Washington Post:
“U.S. border officials are preparing to open another tent facility in South Texas to cope with soaring numbers of migrant families and children crossing into the United States in recent weeks, according to three Homeland Security officials involved in the planning.
“The temporary facility is expected to open in the coming weeks in U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Del Rio sector and will be similar to another “soft-sided” structure the agency opened in Donna, Tex., three weeks ago. That site and other Border Patrol facilities are under increasing capacity strain from the burgeoning influx of Central American minors and family groups in U.S. custody.
“Officials are also looking at the possibility of opening additional sites in Arizona, but those plans are less advanced, according to one official.
“The Del Rio sector tent facility, which will be located near the town of Eagle Pass, is distinct from another temporary shelter the Biden administration opened this week in Carrizo Springs, Tex., where Health and Human Services is holding migrant teens who crossed the border without a parent.
“President Biden has used executive authority to reverse several Trump administration border policies, but he is facing a looming crisis as more and more minors and family groups enter without authorization. The number of minors arriving without a parent has grown to more than 300 each day in recent weeks, a fourfold increase since last fall.”
