President Donald Trump worked every possible angle to keep the number of illegal immigrants attempting to cross America’s southern border low, and manageable.
He built walls, he worked with the governments of Mexico and Guatemala on asylees, and he made it plain that illegal immigrants would find no shelter in the United States.
Explaining to potential border hoppers that there would be no welcome wagon waiting for them in America kept many of them from even attempting the journey. That all changed when Joe Biden took power.
Biden signaled throughout his campaign that immigrants “surge” across the border, and that they would be taken care of if they did. Biden and his surrogates gave illegal border crossers the signal that now is the time, and they listened.
Border facilities that house illegal crossers are now working at capacity levels dangerously far above 100%. Democrats who criticized the Trump administration’s border efforts are watching with horror as Biden is powerless to combat the growing crisis. Now Biden has resorted to spending millions of tax dollars on buying hotel rooms for illegal immigrants.
Paul Sacca reports in The Blaze:
With migrant facilities being overwhelming by the massive surge of migrants, the Biden administration’s solution to the border crisis is to house migrants in hotels, but it will come at a hefty cost to the American taxpayer.
The Biden administration has awarded an $86 million contract to pay for hotel rooms to accommodate 1,200 migrant family members who cross the U.S.-Mexico border, Department of Homeland Security officials informed Axios. The hotel rooms in border states such as Texas and Arizona will originally lodge migrants for six months, but “could be extended and expanded.”
The hotel arrangements will be organized through a San Antonio-based non-profit organization called Endeavors, which “connects vulnerable populations across the United States to a wide range of helpful services.” The Endeavors website states that they offer: “Direct care, migrant wellness support, case management, home study and post-release services, staffing, and holistic programming for unaccompanied migrant children and families.”
On his show recently, Tucker Carlson gave viewers a detailed breakdown on the crisis at the border.
