In recent months, the Biden administration ignored warning signs of a looming migrant surge at the U.S.-Mexico border, as revealed by internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) documents. Mexican immigration authorities had noted an increase in border apprehensions since May, indicating an impending escalation in border crossings. However, the DHS failed to take proactive measures. August witnessed a record-breaking 232,972 encounters with migrants at the border, highlighting the administration’s inaction. The situation has triggered frustration among both Republicans and Democrats, with towns along the border, such as El Paso and Eagle Pass, facing a crisis, while illegal border crossings persist despite the end of Title 42.
