The United States is being barraged by migrant caravans on a daily basis while President Joe Biden refuses to even acknowledge the crisis he ignited with his irresponsible rhetoric and border policies, including an abrupt halt to wall construction.
In a shocking video, a long line of migrants is seen waiting for human smugglers to help them illegally enter the United States from Mexico using a raft to cross the Rio Grande River into South Texas.
Charlotte Cuthbertson, a senior reporter with The Epoch Times, said the video was filmed on Thursday morning.
On Tuesday, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina sounded the alarm on the escalating immigration crisis.
The senator, who visited the border this week, observed that illegal aliens are flooding the border by the thousands every day.
He warned that this influx will skyrocket to “hundreds of thousands by the summer” as the weather gets warmer and Biden continues to ignore the catastrophic humanitarian and economic debacle he unleashed.
“It is a humanitarian crisis,” Graham said on Fox News “Hannity.” “It’s going to be an economic crisis for our cities along the border.”
Economist Peter Navarro, who was an aide to former President Donald Trump, predicted that a record 1 million illegal aliens will sneak across the U.S. southern border in 2021.
“That’s a fact. That will happen,” he said somberly last month on “War Room: Pandemic.”
Tragically, the surge at the border is mushrooming at the same time that millions of Americans are unemployed and struggling financially due to the mass coronavirus shutdowns of the past year.
