U.S. Customs and Border Protections confirmed a Border Patrol agent was fired upon early Friday morning from the Mexican side of the border as President Biden’s border crisis continues to escalate.
The event took place in the El Paso Sector, according to the report. “Approximately 20 rounds were fired towards the agent from approximately 150 yards away. Fortunately, none of the rounds struck the agent. The two subjects were observed entering a sedan on the Mexican side and fleeing the scene. Mexican law enforcement authorities were immediately notified and officers were dispatched to the area.”
The event occurred as July reporting showed 210,000 illegal immigrants crossed the southern border. More than 1.2 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border in 2021.
As Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) honor D.C. law enforcement for their service on Jan. 6, neither has said a word about the latest shooting event on a Border Patrol officer. The contrast continues to reveal what Democrats care about — and don’t — as Biden’s open border plan unfolds.
Yes, it’s terrible that police officers were injured and killed on Jan. 6. However, the number pale in comparison with what happens every single day along the southern border. More than 6,000 illegal immigrants are now crossing per day on average.
Among these thousands of immigrants are those with COVID-19, people with criminal records, drug smugglers, weapon traffickers, sex offenders and those willing to fire rounds at Border Patrol officers.
Sadly, many of those crossing are part of human trafficking efforts, paying a coyote to guide them across the border. Biden’s policies are literally fueling trafficking of people, weapons, drugs and even sickness through his reckless attitude toward immigration.
Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris see the same reports of illegal immigrants everyone else does. They have the ability to cut off the open border any time. They simply don’t seem to care.
Instead, Biden continues to push amnesty as part of his $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. The bipartisan committee working on it might just allow it to happen. The effort serves as part of a larger plan that appears to be pushing for illegal immigrants to become citizens and legal voters, offering millions of new likely Democratic supporters for years to come.
Are Democrats really willing to sacrifice the nation’s security for votes? Apparently so. Whether a short term win in an election or the long-game of turning immigrants into voters, the left continues to push for whatever gets a win rather than what’s right.
As the current rate, we’ll see more than two million illegal immigrants in 2021. That’s more than the population of many states, and more than all but a few of the largest American cities. Worse, every illegal immigrant entering the nation is literally breaking the law, filling our nation with lawbreakers.
Yes, many of those coming into the nation will work hard and do all they can to make a better life. They’re working to make the most of an opportunity. Those most to blame are not those crossing, but those allowing it.
