In spectacular contrast to former President Donald Trump’s opening moves when he took the White House in 2016, President Joe Biden and his administration are rapidly opening up the southern U.S. border, which is already causing quite the headache.
According to Just The News, after only a month in office, law enforcement officials like Arizona’s Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels are virtually begging Biden to stop with the pro-immigration policies, which Dannels says is not only putting a string on local law enforcement, but Biden’s immigration embrace is making his town — and others — much more dangerous.
“[I]t’s tough for us, because what happens in my border county, and the 31 border counties on the Southwest border, will soon be in your backyard,” Dannels said.
The sheriff made clear that while he understands that the president has every right to make changes from the last administration, he’s concerned that the administration didn’t give him, or any other law enforcement offices on and around the border ample time to prepare and marshal the resources necessary to handle another illegal immigrant influx.
“It’s just a point of disaster that I just don’t see any good come out of this for anybody involved,” Dannels said, adding that he feels like the new policies are not organized or collaborative.
The Cochise County sheriff brought up another aspect of the hasty release of illegal immigrants into the area, pointing out that it’s as dangerous for them as it is American citizens, as many of those who are caught and immediately released into the U.S. have no money, food or resources, which can often lead a person making dangerous, often criminal decisions to fill those immediate needs.
The number of those crossing the border illegally began to skyrocket in December after Biden won the 2020 election. Dannels said under the Trump administration’s tough stance on immigration, his county saw roughly 300 to 500 border-crossers per month.
Starting in December, given that the illegal immigrants are essentially being told that the best time to come across is now, under Biden, Dannels said the number jumped into the thousands per month.
Only time will tell just how bad the problem becomes, but it very much looks as though America will face yet another illegal immigration crisis at the southern border, just like we witnessed under the Obama administration.
