Border in Crisis: Refugees Crowd Border While Biden Limits Border Patrol Resources

The nation has been polarized by President Biden’s management of the border, as more than 10,000 Haitians crowd the Texas side of the Rio Grande. President Biden has taken very little action to alleviate this refugee crisis, instead deciding to limit the U.S. Border Patrol’s resources. 

The crisis at the border is overwhelming Border Patrol agents who already lack necessary tools to do their job. Recently, the Biden Administration restricted Border Patrol agents from using horses to secure the border after false accusations arose in the media claiming mistreatment of illegal immigrants.

Jacqueline Charles of the Miami Herald told NPR immigrants who cross the border illegally “are under the impression that what they did was sanctioned. So right there, you see the shortcoming in terms of what the Biden administration is trying to do.”

Most of the Haitians earlier had sought refuge in Mexico and other Latin American countries. Some of them are being flown back to Haiti. But it’s unknown yet how many will stay.

As was pointed out by Rep. Michelle Steel, R-Calif., herself an immigrant: “This administration’s open border policies have resulted in a humanitarian crisis. We are a nation of laws. We must secure our border.”

Americans also take pride in being a “nation of immigrants.” But a nation without borders is not a nation. This year, as many as 2 million immigrants crossed the border illegally, up from near zero last year.
