(DailyVantage.com) – On Thursday, former Vice President Mike Pence harshly criticized President Joe Biden for his decision to put an end to Title 42.
Pence, in an interview with Fox News, warned that “a storm is coming” from South and Central America to our southern border.
He went on to say that the border crisis is “a direct result” of the Biden administration’s lax immigration policies and abdication of duty at the border.
On May 11th, the administration is widely expected to end the Trump-era immigration policy which made it easy for border patrol to turn away illegal migrants as well as deny their asylum requests.
Pence’s warning about an unprecedented surge of illegal border crossings, however, is not some unfounded right-wing talking point. Biden’s own cabinet has voiced the same concerns about an unmanageable influx of arrivals following the end of Title 42.
Biden’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, told reporters in April that there will likely be a border rush after the program is lifted.
“We do expect that encounters at our southern border will increase as smugglers are seeking to take advantage of this change”, Mayorkas said.
Biden, since taking office in January of 2021, has totally neglected our southern border. Under his watch, there has been a historic amount of illegal border crossings.
In March of 2022, U.S. border patrol arrested an unprecedented 210,000 illegal migrants, totally overwhelming authorities. That is the highest number of illegal encounters since February of 2000.
When former President Donald Trump was in office, encounters at the southern border were significantly lower. The numbers aren’t even remotely comparable. But Trump was routinely excoriated by the mainstream media and the Democrats for xenophobic and anti-immigrant.
America, much to its detriment, is now feeling the harsh impact of Democratic rule and liberal immigration policies.
