Citizen journalists are diligently documenting the increasing influx of impoverished foreigners crossing the unsecured border under President Joe Biden’s administration and settling in American communities.

Todd Bensman, an investigator at the Center for Immigration Studies, captured a glimpse of this migration near the Rio Grande river in Matamoros, Mexico. The Los Angeles Times reported on the experiences of some of these migrants:

“Mary Otaiyi, 33, from Nigeria, carried her sleeping 4-year-old on her back while holding her 10-year-old’s hand. She said they had flown to Brazil, then traveled by foot and bus through Bolivia, Peru, and eventually made their way to Mexico, taking a month to reach America. ‘I came for a good life for my kids,’ she said. ‘I have no relatives here and no job in Nigeria.'”

However, instead of addressing the issues faced by Americans such as homelessness, low wages, a shrinking middle class, declining life expectancy, poverty, drug-related fatalities, and societal disengagement, Biden’s progressive administration seems intent on exacerbating them by prioritizing the concerns of the incoming migrants.

Furthermore, the influx of job-seeking migrants hampers the U.S. government’s ability to effectively tackle these problems, as it diverts attention and resources away from domestic issues. This unfortunate outcome is partly driven by the preference of many progressives within federal and state governments to assist and prioritize grateful and subservient migrants over independent and proud Americans. For business executives, this means they need not be concerned about the declining education standards in U.S. schools or invest in enhancing the productivity of American workers when they can easily hire a pool of grateful migrant workers from the local bus station.

Labor migration, especially when it affects swing voters, tends to be unpopular. In fact, an August 2022 poll commissioned by the left-of-center National Public Radio (NPR) revealed that 54 percent of Americans believe Biden is permitting an invasion through the southern border. This sentiment was shared by 76 percent of Republicans, 46 percent of independents, and even 40 percent of Democrats.

To put the scale of the issue into perspective, if Biden allows just 3.5 million migrants to enter the country this year, it would amount to one migrant for every American birth. This statistic underscores the magnitude of the challenge facing the nation in managing the inflow of migrants and the associated socioeconomic implications.

Migrants are making rational decisions as they seize the opportunity presented by President Biden’s promise of a pathway to a better life, leading them through the Golden Door to the society that Americans have created for their own citizens and children.

The Associated Press documented the story of Ricardo Marquez, a 30-year-old Venezuelan man who arrived at a shelter in McAllen. Marquez, along with his wife and 5-month-old child, crossed the border in Brownsville. Their decision to leave Venezuela was driven by the urgent need for their daughter to undergo surgery.

Under the Biden administration, numerous agreements have been forged between U.S. officials and foreign governments to facilitate the journey of migrants from their home countries to the U.S. border. A striking example of this is the assistance provided to many migrants, funded by U.S. taxpayers, to navigate through the challenging Darien Gap jungle trail that spans between South America and Central America.

Mexico’s government is helping the migrants travel up the border and then cross at suitable points, according to a report from the New York Times:

The [Mexican government’s] visas allow migrants to travel within the country, buy bus tickets and airfare, and make their way to the United States border.

The Mexican government has long issued thousands of such documents to migrants, particularly those coming from countries like Haiti and Venezuela experiencing humanitarian crises. But visa numbers increased sharply in the last month as authorities issued them to anyone who asked, according to local humanitarian groups. Instead of detaining migrants without proper documents, as had been the usual practice, migration authorities directed them to a park on the edge of Tapachula to start the visa process.

In stark contrast to normal operations, migration authorities in southern Mexico have also eased militarized migration enforcement over the last month. Some highway checkpoints have been temporarily lifted and regular migration sweeps in Tapachula have ceased, according to local aid groups.

The government-aided migrants come from all over the world — and many hope to bring their families once the adults establish themselves in the United States:

Biden’s deputies are working with the Mexican police who act as traffic cops to minimize the visible buildup on the U.S. side of the border.

Once each group of migrants is allowed to cross, the migrants are packed into busses for transport to a registration office, after which they are released into Americans’ society.
