Texas rancher Whit Jones is providing an insider perspective on just how bad Joe Biden’s border crisis has gotten and how it’s affecting American citizens.
During an interview on Fox News, Jones said he and his neighbors have found dead migrants on their land.
Jones said that he finds two or three dead migrants a year on his property.
“A neighbor of mine has been finding close to 10 a year for the last 10 years,” he said.
“Right now we’re seeing hardly any children or women because of everything that’s going on on the river,” Jones said. “Those people aren’t having to make this journey.”
“They can claim asylum — the women and children can — and they’re being bused places,” he said.
Jones said that on the ground, there is “a little bit more of a dangerous situation” with more “single men coming up.”
“There is a sense of fear that exists down here all the time,” Jones said. “It’s a terrible situation.”
Jones said he is hoping to get a state law passed that “helps penalize smugglers” and provides protection for migrants.
“It gives our local law enforcement the ability to do more with the situation,” he said, noting that the Texas law would “strengthen the penalty on trespassing from a state level.”
The border crisis created by the Biden administration is about to get a lot worse in the coming months.
According to a report from CNN, internal government calculations from the Biden administration project that officials expect to encounter an estimated two million people at the border in 2021.
“US Border Patrol encounters are also expected to be largely made up of single adults, who are being turned away at the US southern border as soon as they’re encountered under a public health order, and as a result, might also account for repeat crossers,” CNN reported.
But combined, the data — based on preliminary reporting as of this month — illustrates the continuing challenge for the Biden administration, which has already faced a series of hurdles on the US-Mexico border, particularly with unaccompanied children and migrants families.
Data reviewed by CNN shows that up to 1.1 million single adults are expected through September, along with up to around 828,000 families and more than 200,000 unaccompanied children. Border Patrol encounters are expected to continue to rise month-by-month, according to the projections, which can vary.
This is the second batch of leaked documents revealing that the Biden administration has created a massive crisis at the border.
According to documents that were leaked to Axios, the Biden administration is projecting that the number of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S.-Mexico border could spiral from more than 16,000 this month to as many as 26,000 in September.
So, the administration thinks the border crisis will continue to get worse month over month until at least September.
To give a sense of how out of hand the crossings are getting, the administration projected just a month ago the figure for May would be 13,000. The new estimate is 22,000 to 25,000.
The Customs and Border Protection range for September is 22,000 to 26,000. Under any scenario, projections include a peak month that would double the record that stood until this month.
Now, the government is planning for multiple months with more than 20,000 kids illegally crossing the border — and that’s not including those from Mexico, who can quickly be returned to their home country.
The agency is planning to open up space for more than 5,000 kids using sites on military bases.
It will need an additional 34,000 beds in September to prevent kids waiting in unfit border patrol stations if projections hold. The agency could have more than 53,000 kids in custody that month.
Almost 110 border-crossers that Biden’s DHS released ended up testing positive for the coronavirus between January 25 and March 1.
