While we’ve known the situation along the U.S.-Mexico border has been chaotic, to say the least, since Joe Biden stole his way into the Oval Office, a new assessment of just how serious the situation has become was reported on Friday.
A new projection from Princeton Policy Advisors estimates that more than 1.8 million illegal immigrants will cross into the U.S. this year.
The org said it would mark the 'worst ever' on record.
Think about that: A virtual army of illegal immigrants being allowed to simply waltz into our country.
Talk about your invasions: What military commander on the planet would have thought it would be so easy to get an army into the United States?
The Washington Examiner noted:
The group said that would be 250,000 more than the next highest number recorded in 2000.
Princeton Policy Advisors President Steven Kopits, who has long argued for a market-based visa program to control immigration, said that 2021 is likely to be the worst ever year of illegal immigration.
Kopits warned that it could undermine Biden and the Democrats in the elections. 'It is premature — but only barely — to peg calendar 2021 as 'the worst ever' for the Biden administration. If the administration wants to avoid heading into the 2022 elections with this dubious distinction, it is high time to start working on Plan B,' he said.
Kopits used current and historical data to come up with his forecast. His past forecasts have held up well. He said that in a fiscal year model (October to October), this year's numbers are likely to be the third-worst, at nearly 1.6 million apprehensions of illegal immigrants.
'The calendar year numbers loom larger for the administration. If the balance of the year reflects historical averages compared to the respective Junes of those years, the Biden administration will post the highest number of apprehensions at the southwest border for a calendar year ever — by a whopping margin of 250,000! If this happens, the administration will either be pegged as maliciously leaving the border open or as the most incompetent administration ever — by far — with respect to border control,' Kopits said.
'I would note with no particular selflessness that a market-based visa program would require 6-12 months to pull together with the various stakeholders. As a consequence, the administration could absorb the worst apprehension numbers by proposing a more sustainable system, under discussion and in the process when the fiscal and calendar year numbers are tallied. If a potentially acceptable alternative is in the works at the time, the political consequences of dreadful apprehension numbers may be easier to manage,' Kopits noted further.
Americans, this can’t be allowed to continue.
Texas is finally acting: Gov. Greg Abbott is moving ahead with his own wall construction while his law enforcement agencies have begun jailing illegals caught in his state.
The time is now. There is no future for our country if we simply allow it to be illegally occupied by millions upon millions of people from all over the planet.
