Two children, one a three-year-old boy, the other a five-year-old girl, drowned while attempting to come into the United States illegally by crossing the Rio Grande last week, which is once again shining a huge spotlight on the spike of migrant deaths happening along the southern border ever since President Joe Biden took office last year. What’s truly horrific is the man is doing nothing, absolutely nothing to stop this madness. He, along with the rest of the Democratic Party, cares far more about stacking the odds in their favor come November than they do about the lives being lost in their pursuit of power.
According to a report from Just the News, “The Biden administration is largely to blame for this rise in border deaths, according to experts and former senior border enforcement officials, who told Just the News the U.S. is encouraging historically high levels of illegal immigration rather than deterring people from making the dangerous trek from South and Central America.”
“Video shot by a Mexican TV station captured the harrowing scene of the young girl’s body being pulled from the water near El Paso, Texas last Monday. The river’s undercurrent had swept the girl from her mother’s arms. Both were from Guatemala,” the report continued.
The boy who died was killed in a separate incident located near Eagle Pass, Texas, though the drowning was similar to the girl. As of this writing, there’s a precious 2-year-old infant who was discovered that is right now fighting for its little life in critical condition. This is something that could have been prevented had Joe Biden and the Democratic Party done their job and enforced the immigration laws on the books. And this is one very good reason we need fences and walls built to thwart this kind of behavior.
Just the News stated in its report that incidents like these are actually becoming more and more commonplace, reaching insanely high levels since Biden took over the White House.
“In just the first nine months of fiscal year 2022, which began in October, authorities found 609 bodies on the U.S. side of the southern border, according to internal U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data reported by the Washington Examiner last month,” the report continued.
That number has already reached status as an all-time high for a single year and has smashed the previous record of 566 migrant deaths to pieces, which was counted during the fiscal year 2021, which is when Biden became president. Back in 2020, there were only 247 bodies recovered and 300 in 2019, according to data from the U.S. Border Patrol.
What this administration doesn’t seem to understand is that even inaction has consequences. Right now they might see an opportunity to screw around with the demographics of the country and stack the election in their favor by using illegal migrants to flesh out voter rolls, but in the process, lives are being lost. It’s not ethical. It’s not moral. And the continued, and likely purposeful negligence, of the Biden administration, should be held accountable for each and every death.
