Readers know that our government lies to us constantly.
Even when Donald Trump was in office, we were lied to as frequently as we’ve always been, because the same deep state swamp rats were lying to our president too.
And they’re again.
The Biden regime keeps pretending that the situation at the border isn’t out of hand.
There’s no ‘crisis’ there.
Nothing to see.
It’s all a lie.
Breitbart News reports:
A U.S. Border Patrol source reports the number of migrant 'got-away's' tallied by the agency surpassed 118,000 for this fiscal year. In less than six months, the 'got-away' number is nearly double that for all of Fiscal Year 2020. Last year, 69,000 illegal immigrants managed to avoid apprehension by the Border Patrol. Sources report the sharpest increase began in January as President Joe Biden took office.
This particular metric is usually not released by Department of Homeland Security officials. The numbers are achieved by counting illegal immigrants who ultimately escape Border Patrol apprehension after being observed by aircraft platforms and camera systems. In addition, Border Patrol agents using traditional 'sign-cutting' techniques identify footprints crossing the border and count those that elude apprehension.
'That's where it gets tricky,' says a Border Patrol agent with knowledge of the data who is not authorized to speak in the issue. 'On a small trail, dozens can walk all over each other's footprints, so you just do your best. Often, they'll glue carpet to the soles of their shoes making detection even harder.'
By the way, none of this is new.
People crossing illegally into our country didn’t just figure these techniques out.
They’ve been using them for years.
But the biggest difference between now and, say, four months ago, is that we had a president whose no BS, enforcement-heavy policies worked to not just keep people out of the country but return them from where they came more quickly.
Biden telegraphed for most of last year he would stop enforcement.
So now we’re getting more illegal aliens. By the thousands.
Far more than we’ve been told.
What a surprise.
Is Joe Biden's Inflation Going to Destroy our Economy and Break the Back of Consumers?
Are backed-up supply chains adding to the dilemma of bad policy?
You can't afford NOT to be prepared for the coming financial reset
