Evidence collected by the Center for Immigration Studies indicates that President Joe Biden’s policies are the “primary cause” of the dramatic increase in illegal immigration into the United States, according to Breitbart News.
CIS Director of Research Steven Camarota studied illegal immigration levels over the last years and found that contrary to what Biden has claimed, the current overflow of illegal immigration isn’t the “usual seasonal bump” in spring illegal entries.
“A far more reasonable interpretation of the data is that President Biden’s pronouncements and policies … as well as his stated desire to end most deportations and continued support for legalizing most illegal immigrants, is spurring larger numbers of families and children to enter illegally,” Camarota wrote.
The research director cited Biden’s policies that do not return unaccompanied children to their country of origin, as outlined in Title 42 as one possible attraction.
Also mentioned was the decision to release Central Americans into the United States within 72 hours of their apprehension, as key reasons for the uptick in attempted border crossings.
“On its face, it would seem that the policies and statements by the new administration are being interpreted by prospective migrants to mean that if they are apprehended, they are more likely to be released,” Camerota said in his review of the data.
“Or, if they enter successfully, they are less likely to be sent home than was the case under the prior administration. Some interviews with migrants indicate that this is the case.
Camerota’s scientific assessment of the problem at the southern border serves as excellent support for what common sense has told Americans for decades: we built it, and they have decided to come.
At this point, if someone, from any country, can swim the river, or scurry under or over a fence, they are essentially set up for life with access entitlements and some of the greatest healthcare on earth, with virtually no responsibility.
