It’s a new year, and it’s a new president, but it sure seems like America is reliving 2009 all over again as Joe Biden brings back every failed Obama immigration policy that led to unaccompanied children illegally crossing the border droves.
For years thousands of children a month, usually older teens, around 16 or 17 have been arriving each year at America’s Southern Border from Central America.
But since November, overwhelmed Border Patrol agents have reported a substantial increase in unaccompanied minors the moment the mainstream media declared Joe Biden the 2020 Presidential election winner.
And those numbers went through the roof the moment Joe Biden became President.
But unlike past years many of the kids now crossing the border aren’t 16, or 17, many of these children are now 13-years-old and younger.
On Thursday, a Customs and Border Protection staffer reportedly told top Biden administration officials to expect a peak of 13,000 unaccompanied minors to cross the border in May — THE HIGHEST LEVEL EVER!
“We’re seeing the highest February numbers [that] we’ve ever seen in the history of the [Unaccompanied Alien Child] program,” a Department of Health and Human Services official told Axios.
NEW — The rising number of migrant children taken into custody at the border in recent days has severely strained the US government's ability to house them.

An Immigration Crisis Of Joe Biden’s Own Making
That’s right: a crisis worse than the one that brought the “kids in cages” backlash under President Donald Trump, and the earlier crises that prompted the building of those “cages” under President Barack Obama.
Despite former President, Donald Trump’s policies clearly being responsible for producing historic lows in illegal crossers.
Mere moments after being sworn in as America’s 45th President. Joe Biden signaled that we were returning to Obama policies that first triggered the unprecedented waves of children crossing without family.
- On his first day in office signed an Executive Order that called for a 100-day moratorium on deportations. A Texas judge has since indefinitely blocked Biden’s deportation ban.
- He revived Obama’s Catch-and-Release policy.
- Biden also announced that he was ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.
- Last week the Biden administration unveiled his path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants.
With Joe Biden sending a message that America’s borders are now open, the Obama-era migrant caravans were back in business.
It Took Only 30 of Joe Biden’s 1460 Days He’ll Be President To Throw The Border Into Crisis
Within a month of the Biden administration implementing Obama’s immigration policies.
The Biden administration has already been forced to house migrant teens in the very same facilities that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris had decried.
The White House claimed that they had to reopen the children migrant facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, in order to hold the 700 teens that they claim arrived unaccompanied.
Biden-Harris are also reopening an overflow facility in Homestead, Fla., which ironically in 2019 Kamala Harris protested, calling the existence of that migrant camp a “crime against humanity.”
Yet, says White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, “There are very few good options here, and we chose the one we thought is best.”
That’s only because President Joe Biden and the Democrats have already done away with the tough immigration policies that former President Donald Trump had already proven to succeed.
For that, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and the Democrats deserve every ounce of ridicule from the American people they have coming.
