The Vice President of the United States claimed, only days ago, that the U.S. southern border is “secure.” Not only did her comment receive severe pushback from lawmakers and border agents and agencies, but the American people don’t buy her rhetoric.
A poll published Thursday by RMG Research shows a majority of Americans “believe cartels have more control over the southern border than the U.S. government.”
Sixty-one percent of registered voters surveyed said that cartels had greater control of the border, compared to 19 percent who said the government has more control. Twenty percent of respondents were “not sure.”
National Review reports:
The poll surveyed 1,200 registered voters from September 20 to 21, and was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen. The margin of error is +/- 2.8 percent.
The majority of voters surveyed, 54 percent, responded that the federal government is not “seriously trying to secure the border and reduce illegal immigration.”
Sixty percent of voters said the “failure of the federal government to secure the southern border” is a bigger problem that governors like Ron DeSantis sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard, and 63 percent said it is “hypocritical” for sanctuary cities, like Martha’s Vineyard, to complain when illegal immigrant are sent there.
Another poll by CRC Research obtained exclusively National Review showed that 63 percent agree that sanctuary cities like Chicago, New York City, and Washington, D.C., should share the burden of having illegal immigrants with border states.
The rampant hypocrisy of Democratic lawmakers was on full display after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sent 50 illegal immigrants to the Martha’s Vineyard, the liberal playground vacation destination in Massachusetts.
Within 24 hours, Democratic lawmakers in Martha’s Vineyard blasted the Florida governor for being “cruel,” then gave the illegal immigrants shelter and food, before putting them on busses and taking them away; ridding their town of the burdensome migrants they claim to support.
Washington, D.C., mayor Muriel Bowser has also said her city “is not a border town,” is “not Texas,” and doesn’t have the infrastructure to handle this type of and level of immigration to our city.”
The poll also shows voters believe ending illegal immigration is important. 83 percent of respondents said it was important, 55 percent said it would have a positive effect on the economy, and 44 percent said it would “significantly reduce crime.”

Illegal migrants in custody reaches new high: ‘We must sleep at night knowing we are the reason this nation is in trouble’
An exclusive report by the Daily Caller News Foundation reveals the number of illegal migrants in the custody of Border Patrol nationwide has surpassed 22,000 as of Tuesday evening. The Daily Caller exclusively obtained internal Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data providing the information.
The report also shows how extremely fast the numbers are rising. As of the evening of August 10 Border Control had nearly 17,000 illegal migrants in custody, up from 7,696 two months prior on June 8. Just this week there were 8,923 migrant encounters by CBP on Monday and 7,730 illegal migrants released into the country, according to the new data.
Democratic El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser said Saturday that the city is at its “breaking point,” while Democratic Eagle Pass Mayor declared a state of emergency in recent days. Agents have also become increasingly vocal about what they are enduring. One agent stationed along the northern border said “Our duties now revolve around virtual processing and the facilitation of the inflow of illegal migration into the United States. The scenario unfolds with agents stationed at their respective posts, immersed in virtual paperwork, striving to cope with the overwhelming surge of illegal migrants, far outpacing our capacity to process them efficiently. This has rendered our border exposed and vulnerable.”
“In my extensive 13-year tenure, I find myself grappling with a reality I never envisaged. Our current circumstances defy logic; established policies, our solemn oaths, and the very essence of our professional calling have been eroded. Instead, we find ourselves relegated to mere affirmations from higher authorities, commending our efforts. The days of border patrol, the pursuit of illicit substances—what we colloquially term ‘dope’—have yielded to a role resembling that of caretakers,” the agent added.
“We are upset because what they are making us do is break our oath we pledged. They have taken our job and made it a joke. We have endangered the country in so many ways. We must sleep at night knowing we are the reason this nation is in trouble,” another agent said.
