Biden-Harris are 100% to Blame for 50+ Dead Migrants in Texas – And Many More

OPINION – After Texas police found over 50 dead illegal migrants in or near a tractor-trailer on the outskirts of San Antonio, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott blamed the horrific mass deaths on President Joe Biden‘s ‘deadly open border policies’ and ‘refusal to enforce the law.’

These deaths are on Biden. They are a result of his deadly open border policies. They show the deadly consequences of his refusal to enforce the law.

 

And he is 100% correct.

It is Biden and ‘Immigration Czar’ VP Kamala Harris’s fault. And so are the deaths of hundreds more.

The tsunami of illegal migrants hitting the US border began as Biden-Harris came to office last year and has only grown dramatically since, as Team Biden quickly dismantled most of President Trump’s effective and humane border and immigration policies. And with it has come a tidal wave of death as Biden has presided over record levels of migration, deaths, and rescues at the southern border.

According to official statistics reported by the Daily Mail, migrant deaths have skyrocketed with the number of fatalities reported in 2021 more than doubling those recorded in 2020, and the highest number of migrant deaths since the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CPB) began keeping track in 1998

Specifically, CPB recorded 557 migrant deaths along the southwest border in 2021, more than double the 254 recorded deaths in 2020, and nearly double the 300 who died in 2019.

Last December, more than 50 other migrants died when a similar tractor-trailer rolled over on a highway in southern Mexico on the way to the United States.  

In October, Mexican authorities reported finding 652 migrants packed into six trailers near the U.S. border. Luckily for them, they were stopped at a military checkpoint. 

Meanwhile, Biden quickly and shamelessly blamed the avoidable tragedy on ‘human traffickers who have no regard for the lives they endanger and exploit to make a profit.’ Which is partly true.

But Biden then gaslighted his critics by adding that:

Exploiting vulnerable individuals for profit is shameful, as is political grandstanding around tragedy.        

What Biden deliberately ignores is that it is crystal clear that his disastrous immigration and border policies are actively encouraging these human traffickers and the illegal migrants they smuggle. 

And it is shameful that he, and other Democrats, are shifting the blame, rather than owning it.

Senator Ted Cruz, a Republican from Texas summed it up in his tweet:

Horrific. This..is..WRONG. How many more people have to die before Dems give a damn?

Answer: Probably hundreds more, Ted, hundreds more.  ADN
