Rep. August Pfluger: Biden’s No Consequences Policies Cause Border Crisis

The CDC believes over 105,000 Americans died from narcotic overdoses in a 12-month period ending in October 2021, with 66 percent of those fatalities being caused by synthetic opioids like fentanyl.

Fentanyl-related fatalities exceeded gun and vehicle-related fatalities in the US last year.

Illegal Immigration Causing American Deaths

A law enforcement officer in Seminole, Texas was wounded by an illegal immigrant just last week during a simple traffic check in West Texas.

Two individuals were killed and six others were gravely hurt in a knife attack in Las Vegas that was carried out by an illegal immigrant.

How many Americans must perish before this president recognizes the national security problem he brought about with his no-repercussions policy?

It is an unprecedented catastrophe and a state of turmoil. Our border has been taken over by coyotes and cartels. Operatives of these criminal organizations are able to function without repercussions within the United States.

A Mexican native who was a convicted felon living illegally on the American side of the border was one of the most disgusting things I ever saw.

His employment as a “punisher” for the Mexican cartels is symbolized by the tattoo of a skull being crushed on his wrist. The United States’ cartel laws are enforced by this offender.

It is noteworthy that the Biden administration lacks the political resolve that the Mexican cartels have to uphold their own laws.

Cartels exploit, attack, and force the most vulnerable members of society into a form of pseudo-slavery while generating billions of dollars in profit from them.

They are utilizing drones to send harmful substances like fentanyl across our borders, keeping track of shift changes, and committing crimes in places with insufficient security.

Prior to January 2021, there were usually 30,000–40,000 unauthorized crossings each month. This number can be handled by the number of Border Patrol agents and administrative personnel.

Nevertheless, 200,000 people have crossed each month on average under the Biden administration.

Currently, the same agents must deal with six times as many illegal immigrants as before, in addition to smugglers and cartels who have grown more powerful as a result of the absence of repercussions.

The fact that over 60% of Border Patrol agents are assigned to administrative tasks creates an extremely unsettling gap in those who continue to work on national security-related areas of border protection.

New legislation is not necessary. President Biden must possess the political will to uphold the laws we already have. Congress must use the force of the purse to force him if he rejects it.

Republicans Devoted to U.S.

Republicans are devoted to the United States. A safe nation, starting at our southern border, is one of the main tenets of our strategy.

No other situation is more crucial to our country’s security. To deter unauthorized crossings and cartel-driven trafficking, we would like to fully fund efficient border enforcement techniques, infrastructure, and cutting-edge technology.

The open border policies are no longer acceptable to Americans. Restore order at our border, please.This article appeared in The Patriot Brief and has been published here with permission.
