The Illegal Alien Crime Spree in Just One Month

by | Mar 11, 2024 | Open Borders

One of Joe Biden’s first acts in office was opening the border to appease his radical activist allies. He told border agents to go soft on illegal aliens—and the result is an unprecedented crime wave. That’s Biden’s gift to America.

Thanks to Biden Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies allowing criminal illegal aliens to roam free with no consequences, Americans are paying the price in every corner of the nation.

Biden wants to fire Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents if they try to deport illegal aliens who have been arrested for a DUI.

When the boss speaks, employees listen: Since Biden took office in 2021, illegal alien DUI arrests have dropped by 71 percent and criminal deportations have fallen by 67 percent. That’s not a drop in criminal activity; that’s this administration’s lawlessness in action.

While the far-left media doesn’t report the harmful impacts of illegals crossing the border, we have found some eye-opening examples of the deadly impacts of Biden’s open border policies. Just a single month, February 2024, was filled with violent crime by illegal aliens—including atrocities against children.

Bragging About the Damage

Despite this train of abuses, Homeland Security Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas has boasted “we have rescinded so many Trump immigration policies, it would take so much time to list them.”

Republican Rep. Bob Good, who represents Campbell County, Virginia, believes that Biden has “intentionally caused the border crisis by reversing President Trump’s policies.”

Biden Democrats want you to believe crime is down and that the solution is to make a quick path to citizenship for these criminal illegal aliens. At least that is what the former “border czar” Kamala Harris believed was the answer.

Remember when President Biden said, “I can think of nobody who is better qualified to do this,” referring to Vice-President Harris solving the border issue? Her big solution to the growing problem was to spend money to create jobs in Central America instead of here at home. Rather than spending money on Americans jobs, she passed it along to countries like Venezuela who were releasing their criminals from prison and sending them to the United States.

Americans know that Joe Biden and his Democrat allies are responsible for the February crime spree by illegals. This carnage is only getting worse, and Democrats must be held accountable at the ballot box in November.
