The practice of catching and then releasing illegal aliens at the southern border has risen by an unbelievable 430,000 percent over last August under Joe Biden. In August of 2020, when Donald Trump was still in control, the U.S. Border Patrol caught and released ten illegals.

But what a difference a year makes. In August of this year, Biden’s U.S. Border Patrol arrested 195,000 illegals and released 43,941 of them. That is a rise of 439,410 percent!

Mark Morgan, who was Trump’s acting head of Customs and Border Protection, slammed Biden for essentially telling illegals that they won’t have any barriers to free entry.

“If you tell the migrant they’re not going to be released, they’re not going to come. If a migrant knows they will not be released into the United States awaiting their immigration process, they will not come,” he said according to the Washington Times.

The Times added that things on the border have changed wildly since Trump left office. The paper compared two months under Trump to Biden’s.

Per the paper:

  • In January 2020, before the onset of the pandemic, Border Patrol agents made 29,204 arrests. Of those, 86% were returned, put into speedy deportation or subjected to one of the Trump team’s administrative fixes to block bogus asylum claims, such as the “Remain in Mexico” policy or the cooperative agreements struck with Central American nations. About 12% were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement with a “Notice to Appear” for an eventual immigration court date. Just 75 migrants, less than 0.5%, were caught and released at the border.
  • In August 2020, during the pandemic, agents made 47,282 arrests. Of those, more than 90% were immediately expelled under what is known as Title 42, an emergency health order shutting the border to unauthorized migration. Another 6.6% of those arrested were put into a speedy deportation or removal process. Just 10 people, effectively a rate of 0%, were caught and released at the border.
  •  In August 2021, under Mr. Biden, agents made 195,558 apprehensions — more than 2½ times the number of the other two months combined. About 47% were expelled under Title 42 powers, and about 7% were put into the speedy deportation process.

Still, 23% were caught and released at the border and 15% more were caught, turned over to ICE and given notices of court dates.

Most of those were held about 25 days then released, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse.

Biden’s reps tried to blame other countries for the onslaught of illegals.

But the truth is that Biden’s open-door policy is what caused the higher number of illegals. In fact, Caravans started making their way up to the United States in mid-December, anticipating Biden’s open doors.

Two days before the Biden inauguration, an illegal Honduran traveling in a caravan of thousands to the United States told The Hill he was making the journey because Biden “is going to help all of us.”

Heck, in March, some of the Illegals showed up at the border wearing Biden T-Shirts:

Beginning with his first day in office, Biden canceled the Trump that actually worked. For example, they stopped the construction of the border fence, They canceled the remain in Mexico program, and despite the SCOTUS ruling, the program to be restarted remains inactive.] Other programs were also killed.

Biden took what Trump got down trickle and in less than nine months and turned it into a tsunami. Just look at the numbers above, and it’s about to get much worse. According to NBC News, team Biden is quietly preparing for an unbelievable number of migrants heading to the U.S. in October.

If the number of aliens illegally crossing the border is at record levels, why doesn’t the President simply reinstate the Trump programs that actually worked? It may be because the Democrats see Illegal aliens as future voters for their candidates, or it may be something much simpler than that.  In the minds of Joe Biden’s socialist handlers, anything program created by President Trump has to be canceled because “orange man bad.”
