Biden has created a mess on the southern border, and it gets worse by the day.

While the woke Left believes that it is racist to protect our borders, they keep their heads in the sand about the humanitarian crisis they have created.

Now the chair of the House Homeland Security Committee just exposed the threat Biden’s border policies are having not only on the nation’s security but your family’s safety as well.

Lawmakers and officials are sounding the alarm

Representative Mark Green (R-TN) is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee.

The lawmaker recently said something during a discussion at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that should make every American stand up and pay attention.

“I think every American should be scared to death. Not only is it the terrorist threat, we’ve had almost 400 [suspected terrorists] in this Presidency when there were 11 last time, but it’s the 24,000 Chinese nationals who came in last year, 20,000 since October 1, the highest year. Before that was 1,800,” he said. 

He continued, “You don’t leave China with the social credit score system unless the CCP (Chinese Community Party) knows about it. They’re flying to South America and Central America and they’re coming up here; they’re paying $60,000 to the cartels, which is enriching the cartels, terrible organizations, they’re subhuman. And we’re basically feeding them money and letting these individuals come into the United States.”

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data, approximately 24,048 Chinese citizens were encountered at the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2023, which ended in September.

That number is over 12 times the total from the prior fiscal year 2022 an over a 7,000% increase from 2021, when 323 Chinese nationals crossed the border due to stricter travel bans and lockdowns because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Green went on to discuss the danger related to the influx of Chinese nationals getting stopped at the border and what it might mean for the nation in the future.

“I’m not suggesting that China is going to be attacking the United States, but if we defend Taiwan, I can’t imagine there aren’t people in there who are going to be tracking our railheads and looking at our ports. And who knows what else. We’ve had mass waves of Chinese terrorists storming military installations with cameras. So look, it’s a desperate threat,” he said.

Fentanyl is also a real danger

Green also put a spotlight on the amount of fentanyl entering the U.S. from the border.

Over 27 pounds of fentanyl was intercepted at the border in fiscal year 2023, according to CBP data.

Green said, “And then the fentanyl; that little baby that was crawling around on a floor in a VRBO in Florida died because the previous tenant had left fentanyl. There isn’t an American who is safe right now because of this open border and the failure of this secretary,” referring to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) took things even further, saying that the “invasion of fentanyl in this country is a Chinese communist plot to poison Americans,” calling the issue a “clear and present danger.”

Former acting Director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Tom Homan, noted that “Joe Biden is the first President in the history of this nation who came in office and unsecured the border on purpose.”
