Immigration policies being implemented by the Biden White House are responsible for a fivefold increase in illegal immigration, claims an Arizona sheriff.

Sheriff Mark Dannels of Cochise County, Ariz. told Just the News that the new president’s “hasty” immigration policy changes are responsible for the uptick in illegal crossings. Local officials were not given the time to prepare before Biden signaled a lenient view on the southern border, prompting increased crossings.

“It just makes it really, really tough, because now the message is, ‘Come across our border, legally or illegally,'” Dannels said. “And then the consequences are minimum, if any.”

Sheriff warns Biden’s policies won’t just effect Border but entire nation

The sheriff said he respects Biden’s right to make policy changes, but the sweeping 180 from President Trump did not give local officials enough time to respond.

“[I]t’s tough for us, because what happens in my border county, and the 31 border counties on the Southwest border, will soon be in your backyard,” Dannels said. He added that often times migrants will fan out into other areas to find resources.

“It just seems so irrational, so not organized, not collective, not collaborative,” he said. “It’s just a point of disaster that I just don’t see any good come out of this for anybody involved.”

Democrat Del Rio Mayor pleads for Biden to stop flow of illegal migrants

This news comes as Del Rio, Texas democratic mayor Bruno Lozano took to Youtube this week to plead with Biden to “please stop” and to “make a new plan” with migrants flooding his city.

“I am pleading and requesting with you to please put a halt to any measures regarding the release of immigrants awaiting court dates into the city of Del Rio and surrounding areas,” Lozano said in a Feb. 17 video.

The Texas mayor begged Biden to cease his policy allowing migrants to flood the United States while awaiting court hearings, instead of having to stay in Mexico under the Trump administration.

While Arizona sheriffs and Texas mayors are blaming Biden’s new policies and begging him to change his policies, former president Donald Trump is planning to make his first public appearance this week at CPAC, where he is expected to discuss immigration.

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap

Joe Biden

President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.

According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.

In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were  “wrongfully detained.”  He said the American’s  would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.

“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.

Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.

The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”

“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
