The border crisis shows no signs of slowing down, and the Biden administration’s weak and ineffective response is exacerbating the situation. Unsurprisingly, recent footage from Fox News shows that tens of thousands of illegal immigrants are still making their way to the United States through Mexico, despite assurances from President Biden that the border is secure.
Footage of migrants riding freight trains in the central Mexican state of Zacatecas highlights the daunting and dangerous journey people are willing to take to reach America. The fact that people are willing to risk their lives by riding in such perilous conditions is a testament to the desperate situation they face in their home countries. However, the Biden administration’s lack of action not only fails to address the issue but also encourages further illegal immigration and dangerous travel methods.

It is not just the dangerous train rides that pose a risk. Crossing the border illegally also puts people in harm’s way. In Eagle Pass, Texas, thousands of illegal immigrants were caught crossing into the United States early Monday morning. The Del Rio Sector remains one of the busiest sectors along the southern border, and the surge shows no signs of slowing down.
The situation at the border has reached a breaking point, yet President Biden has done little to stem the tide. The lack of action from the administration sends a clear message to the world that America has weak borders and an open invitation to illegal immigrants. The current border crisis is not only a national security issue, but it is also a humanitarian crisis that is being grossly mishandled by the Biden administration.

This crisis affects all Americans, regardless of political affiliation. Illegal immigration brings with it a host of problems, including increased crime, strain on public services, and lower wages for American workers. President Biden’s failure to take action to secure the border puts all Americans at risk.
It is time for the Biden administration to take responsibility for this situation and take decisive action to secure the border. The American people have spoken on this issue, and they demand action from their elected officials. The safety and sovereignty of our nation depend on it.
