Southern Border Patrol illegal immigrants

President Joe Biden has been in the White House for only one single year. In that year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehended over 2 million migrants at the Southern border. According to a National Review analysis of CBP data, that is the highest number of illegal immigrant apprehensions in over 20 years.

“The 2 million apprehensions in 2021 is more than double the 921,812 apprehensions in 2019, during a surge at the border under then-President Donald Trump’s administration. There were 341,519 Southwest border apprehensions in 2017, Trump’s first year in office” reports National Review.

“All monthly records” have been broken since May of Biden’s presidency. Andrew Arthur, resident fellow in law and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies made a stunning observation: “This migration doesn’t look anything like” historical trends we have seen. “Apprehensions typically peak in May, and decline through January, when they pick up again in February” said Arthur.

The peak this pas year was in July, when CBP agents apprehended 213,593 migrants at the border. The Biden Administration has proven to be absolutely inept when it comes to the border crisis. “Crisis” was something the White House vehemently denied for majority of its first year.

Biden said of the surge, “it happens every single, solitary year.” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to blame Trump. In May Psaki said the surge began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration…after four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head on and is building a fair, orderly, and human immigration system.”

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
