Biden ‘loses control’ of Mexico border
16/05/2021|4min

The United States has “lost control” of its southern border and is on track to record more than two million migrants at the US-Mexico border by the end of the fiscal year according to Sky News host Rita Panahi.

An internal government estimates reviewed by CNN marked the record high migrant activity at the border as America experiences its worst border crisis in 20 years under the Biden administration.

“For years the media painted the Trump administration as monsters for enforcing border protection policies and for ‘putting children in cages’.”

“But now as the detention centres fill to overflowing with children, with the situation so grim that some facilities are at 1,700% of capacity, the media has largely lost interest in the issue.”

Ms Panahi said under both Obama and Biden the “kids in cages” had become “migrant children in overflow facilities. Funny how that works.”

You do realize that we can go find a smear campaign for ourselves right? Sky is called Fox here. If we want to find a hit piece on Biden about something that's constantly been a problem already we don't have to look this far. Nothing about any border has ever been in total control.

This forum thread gave me a nice chuckle. This is just another version of the "COVID is out of control under Biden!" stuff that Fox news trotted out the week after the election. It's so predictable that people even predicted they'd do it. Apparently COVID was not a problem all through 2020, and suddenly became something to worry about at the end of January.

It's also funny how the "Honduran Convoy" and Hunter Biden's laptop suddenly stopped being important news on the second Wednesday of November. I predict they'll suddenly be newsworthy again in about 14 months, just before the midterm elections.

Absolute chaos and an open border are exactly what this administration wants.

The borders are open and Biden has "lost control," of them, Or migrants are being held in detention facilities awaiting immigration hearings/deportation as per US law? Which is it? :?

Well this is a xenophobic, racist & ironic viewpoint considering how much chaos the last guy cashed in on to start his blog.

There were called "literal concentration camps" when Trump was in charge.

The reality of Biden’s border crisis: Migrants captured during ride-along
23/05/2021|11min

Border Protection officers have captured a group of migrants during a ride-along with a sheriff’s deputy at one of the major corridors for human smuggling in the US.

Sky News Washington Correspondent Annelise Nielsen visited Falfurrias, Texas, to explore the reality of President Joe Biden’s border crisis.

An hour and a half north of the border between the US and Mexico, border officers spotted eight people running into a field and captured six – meaning two eluded authorities and made their way to try to sneak past the checkpoint just a few kilometres north.

On cool evenings, local officers said they expect to intercept five similar groups.

Brooks County Sheriff’s Deputy Sam Rosas this type of encounter was a “daily thing”.

“It happens daily for everyone, border patrol, DPS, local law enforcement in the city of Falfurrias and Brooks County Sheriff’s Office,” he said.

“They have a certain point, the GPS coordinates, that they have to get to in a certain amount of time, and they’ve got to do it fast and quick.

“Whenever there’s a migrant that’s sick or that’s in pain, can’t keep up, they leave them behind, and usually those are the ones we’ve got to pick up from the brush.

Three full-time sheriffs have to manage around 2,500 square kilometres of land.

Last year 34 bodies were recovered in Brooks County Sheriff Benny Martinez' county, but by the beginning of May that figure had already hit 31 for this year.

In the first months of Joe Biden's Presidency, the number of people attempting to cross the southern border between the United States and Mexico has skyrocketed.

Already this year more than 530,000 migrants have been encountered trying to cross into the United States.

In the last two months alone, that number was more than 173,000 – the highest in two decades.

And yet Fox/Sky did not report on the crisis in 2019 when in May 144,000 were encountered. The total for that year was 977,000.

BTW, you can find encounter numbers here: CBP: Southwest Land Border Encounters

Once again, thankful not to have a TV. Fox/Sky is just brain rot.

Pepe, it's not so much the size - more what Sky didn't say in 2019.
If this issue is of such concern to them, why didn't they report it then? Could it possibly, just possibly, be because they have a not-so-hidden agenda on Biden?
And you wonder why the source is often laughed at here... :wink:

I don’t think anyone has ever controlled the border.If people want to come here they will find a way to get in.
