Because of Joe Biden’s horrific border policies, these drug cartels and human traffickers are now making millions per day according to border patrol sources.
In an interview with House Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), the former Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan, said the “bank accounts” of smugglers “are being filled on the backs of the migrants, and at the cost of our national economic security.”
“First of all, it is a crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border, said Morgan, during the Mar. 9 edition of the podcast “Hold These Truths with Dan Crenshaw.” Morgan was the CBP acting commissioner in 2019-2021. He also served for three months as the acting director of ICE in 2019.
Fox News also reported criminal organizations trafficking women, children, families and single adults over the U.S.-Mexico border earned as much as $14 million a day in February, according to border patrol sources.
“Trafficking is a multibillion-dollar industry,” said former Tucson Border Patrol Chief Roy Villareal, who retired in December after 30 years with the agency. “A lot of these vulnerable populations use their life savings. Some are essentially indentured servants and they’re working off this debt for a long period of time. In other cases, some of these migrants are asked to transport narcotics or some form of crime to work off a different part of their debt.”
The human smuggling windfall comes as U.S. taxpayer costs for the border crisis continue to spike, topping $5 million a day, based on 2019 figures provided by Health and Human Services that put daily “influx” shelter costs at $800 per migrant. Additionally, last week the Biden administration awarded a $86 million contract for hotel rooms to hold 1,200 migrant families as the crisis exceeds ICE holding capacity.
In the past, “a thousand apprehensions was a bad day, and we’re looking right now at 4,500 to 5,000 per day,” he added. This figure corresponds with February’s fiscal year-to-date border apprehension and enforcement statistics issued by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Below is a break down from February:
Here are the revenues CBP officials estimate for February. The numbers for single adults and Mexicans were adjusted to account for recidivism.

Joe Biden has been the biggest boon for these violent drug cartels in years. Not only are they making a ton from trafficking even more drugs across the border because of the crisis they are creating, but they are making millions per day off of the backs of poor families just to traffic children and families. And as the Border Patrol suggests, many of these families are being coerced into participating this. This is what Joe Biden has done.
“But don’t worry, Joe Biden is empathetic, so this is all fine,” to quote Ben Shapiro. What’s Biden got to do to get an actual scandal here?
