Migrant Apprehensions Skyrocket in One Border Area

Since the 46th president of the United States Joe Biden entered the oval office in January of 2021, the American public has dealt with a plethora of problems. Indeed, in nearly every regard, the state of American politics on both the domestic and international levels has deteriorated. Inflation has soared out of control over the last several years and was at least partially caused by President Bidens reckless and exorbitant spending agenda. The national debt hovers above 30 trillion, more than doubling in size over the last ten years. Some 60% of Americans are still living paycheck to paycheck, and the middle class, which has been struggling for decades, is continuing to shrink and decline. Wages have largely stagnated, and the power of the dollar has declined.

Internationally, enemies of America and the western world have gone rogue. China has continued to threaten American dominance in the pacific, and recently flew an aerial maneuver over the island of Taiwan. Hamas invaded Israel and murdered over 1,000 innocent civilians, including 22 American citizens, bringing more chaos into the affairs of the middle east. In eastern Europe, Russia remains mired in a bloody conflict in Ukraine. Biden, in contrast, botched the American withdrawal from Afghanistan in the summer of 2021.

Perhaps the most alarming immediate threat to national security are the millions of illegal migrants which have crossed the southern border since 2021. But while the crisis near Mexico is historic, it appears that even the northern border into the United States is porous. In September, a report emerged that over 6,700 illegal crossings into America from Canada occurred in less than a year. This number, while miniscule in comparison to the thousands coming in daily near Mexico, was a higher number than in 11 years combined in the northern sector. 49% of these individuals were Mexican nationals who had attempted to enter the country into New York, Vermont or New Hampshire.
