More illegal aliens have crossed the southern border in just one year of Biden’s regime than during the entire four years of Trump’s four-year term.
According to the Daily Signal, federal data show an extreme difference between the two presidents.
“On his first day in office, Biden signed six executive orders and issued several more directives related to immigration and border security,” said the Republic. He also proposed legislation, as the Republic reported it, that would “provide a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants” who had arrived in the United States by Jan. 1, 2021.
The result? In fiscal year 2021, the number of individuals that the Border Patrol encountered as they illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border jumped to 1,734,686. In fiscal year 2022, it jumped again to 2,378,944.
From January 2017, when Trump was inaugurated, through January 2021, when Biden succeeded him in office, the Border Patrol, according to its data, encountered a total of 2,112,458 trying to illegally enter our country through the southern border.
That means the Border Patrol encountered more people trying to illegally cross the southern border in fiscal year 2022, under Biden, than it did through the entirety of Trump’s presidency.
This also means that more people on the terror watch list have snuck across the border under Biden.
In fiscal year 2017, when Donald Trump was inaugurated as president, the Border Patrol encountered just two individuals on the terrorist watchlist trying to sneak across the southern border between the ports of entry. In fiscal year 2018, it encountered six. In fiscal year 2019, it encountered none; and, in fiscal year 2020, it encountered three.
In fiscal year 2021, the year President Joe Biden was inaugurated, there was a substantial shift in the trend. That year, the number of individuals on the terrorist watchlist that the Border Patrol encountered trying to sneak across the southern border increased fivefold to 15.
Then, in fiscal year 2022, it climbed to 98. So far in fiscal year 2023, which isn’t even half over yet, the Border Patrol has encountered 69 individuals on the terrorist watchlist trying to sneak across our southern border between the ports of entry.
Joe Biden makes the whole country less safe.
