NEW YORK — Joe Biden’s “come one, come all” promises and policies have turned the U.S.-Mexico border into a humanitarian catastrophe, a public-health calamity, and a national-security crisis. Biden also has transformed America’s southern frontier into a gigantic crime scene.

The border criminals include every illegal alien who invades America without permission. They undermine U.S. sovereignty, fleece beleaguered American taxpayers, and mock millions of immigrants who arrive legally. Foreigners who breach the border without passports violate 8 U.S. Code § 1325(a) — Improper entry by alien. Border Patrol encounters with such illegals soared from 36,687 in February 2020 to 100,441 in February 2021 — up 173 percent.

Even more nefarious are apprehensions of aliens with criminal convictions. President Donald J. Trump slashed these from 4,269 in FY 2019 to 2,438 in FY 2020 — down 42.9 percent. Customs and Border Protection reports that for FY 2021 to date (October 1, 2020, through last February 28) that number swelled to 4,140 — up 69.8 percent.

“Here we are, not even halfway through FY 2021, and a year’s worth of criminal aliens [compared to FY 2019] already have been encountered by the Border Patrol,” Jessica M. Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies with the Center for Immigration Studies, told me. “That’s alarming, and suggests that the criminal aliens feel empowered by Biden’s welcome-wagon policies.”

These criminals have ugly rap sheets.

In Texas’ Rio Grande Valley Sector, “a Salvadoran man with a prior conviction for murder was discovered,” CBP’s Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings revealed March 27 via Twitter. For FY 2021 to date, “RGV agents have arrested over 861 criminal aliens, to include 63 gang members and 92 sex offenders.”

Even scarier than these specific arrests are the border-wide convictions for other illegals captured this fiscal year:

Homicide – three

Illegal weapons possession and trafficking – 140

Sexual offenses – 210

Burglary, robbery, larceny, theft, and fraud – 308

Assault, battery, and domestic violence – 484

Driving under the influence – 715

Illegal drug possession and trafficking – 816

Convictions across these seven categories totaled 1,672 in FY 2019. Trump cut them to 1,309 in FY 2020 — down 21.7 percent. FY 2021 to date: 2,676 — up 104.4 percent.

Others got away.

Biden’s human-trafficking bonanza is huge business for seriously bad guys.

“We just come here to earn our daily bread, like everyone else,” a smuggler who calls himself “Lily” told Univision on March 26. Standing in the shallow Rio Grande, beside the small boat that he uses to ferry illegals across the river from Mexico to America, “Lily” adds, “In all honesty, there are way too many people. Believe me. With the benefits your new president is now granting, people found the courage to come.”

And how much “bread” do these traffickers collect per alien escorted? CBP figures suggest that 100,441 illegals typically paid some $4,096 each to surge the border in February. This averages $14.7 million per day, $411.5 million that month, or a cool $5.365 billion per year. This illicit sum exceeds the 2020 sales revenues of Hyatt Hotels ($5.02 billion), Western Union ($5.29 billion), and Harley Davidson ($5.36 billion). Traffickers likely pay no taxes.

“It’s so lucrative that the smugglers will not easily be deterred from doing this business,” Jessica Vaughan worries. “More and more will want to get into the act, bringing people from all over the world; and the more money they make, the more money they will have — to bribe officials, hire and pay more employees, and acquire weapons, vehicles, and technology to evade law enforcement.”

If those who seek better lives in America visited U.S. embassies, acquired visas, and landed at American airports, most of this chaos and mayhem would go unperpetrated. Instead, this new administration has engineered the conditions under which international hoodlums prey on, profit from, and even kill other human beings.

In just two months, a “nice guy” named Joe Biden has distinguished himself as the trans-border criminal’s best friend.

ISN’T IT TIME TO IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

Can you continue to tolerate gasoline prices, product prices all going up, the WH being run by Harris, Pelosi and Schumer? Literally destroying our country, allowing thousands upon thousands of illegals into our country bringing in God knows what diseases?

Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

Liberals have proven to be disastrous to every civilization since the Roman Empire. No one can deny the impulse to help another human being, but it must be tempered with wisdom. Liberals lack that. Most are so anxious to feel good about themselves they don’t care about those who have to suffer for their emotional gratification.

America’s compassion and long history that welcomed the “huddled masses” has passed the point of acceptable extreme. Criminals should be rejected and forcibly repelled. Second offender criminals should face capital punishment after special, short trials.

Identities of non-criminals should be recorded biometrically, including as a minimum, photographs, retina scans, DNA and fingerprints. Second offenders should be rejected and forcibly repelled. Third offenders should treated as criminals and face capital punishment after special short trials.

The world must stop seeing the U.S. as the great and generous provider. Nations with illegal aliens that exceed established maximums should be placed on a list and treated unfavorably. Penalties would terminate diplomatic relations and cessation of trade. Failure to control illegal migration is a hostile action.

Good, let’s remove the border all together, and all the Mexico states become part of the great US of A, with many more senators, reps and democratic voters. Oh, I left out the most important, drug dealers.
