The Joe Biden border crisis is literally getting worse by the day.
A new projection from Princeton Policy Advisors reveals that more than 1.8 million illegal immigrants are expected to cross the U.S.-Mexico border in 2021.
The group said it would mark the “worst ever” on record, which is another stunning reminder of how bad things have gotten under Joe Biden.
The Washington Examiner summarized the main findings:
The group said that would be 250,000 more than the next highest number recorded in 2000.
Princeton Policy Advisors President Steven Kopits, who has long argued for a market-based visa program to control immigration, said that 2021 is likely to be the worst ever year of illegal immigration.
Kopits warned that it could undermine Biden and the Democrats in the elections. “It is premature — but only barely — to peg calendar 2021 as ‘the worst ever’ for the Biden administration. If the administration wants to avoid heading into the 2022 elections with this dubious distinction, it is high time to start working on Plan B,” he said.
Kopits used current and historical data to come up with his forecast. His past forecasts have held up well. He said that in a fiscal year model (October to October), this year’s numbers are likely to be the third-worst, at nearly 1.6 million apprehensions of illegal immigrants.
“The calendar year numbers loom larger for the administration. If the balance of the year reflects historical averages compared to the respective Junes of those years, the Biden administration will post the highest number of apprehensions at the southwest border for a calendar year ever — by a whopping margin of 250,000! If this happens, the administration will either be pegged as maliciously leaving the border open or as the most incompetent administration ever — by far — with respect to border control,” Kopits wrote.
“I would note with no particular selflessness that a market-based visa program would require 6-12 months to pull together with the various stakeholders. As a consequence, the administration could absorb the worst apprehension numbers by proposing a more sustainable system, under discussion and in the process when the fiscal and calendar year numbers are tallied. If a potentially acceptable alternative is in the works at the time, the political consequences of dreadful apprehension numbers may be easier to manage,” Kopits added.
Earlier this month, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials announced that a whopping 188,829 illegal aliens crossed into America in June 2021, the most in any month for the past 21 years.
Since Biden took office, there have now been over 1 million crossings this year, according to data from CBP.
A whopping 500,000 illegal immigrants have crossed the southern border into the United States since Biden appointed Kamala Harris as the “border czar.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, only three months have passed since Harris took on the responsibility and the half a million figure only refers to those who have been apprehended.
Let’s repeat that: we are only aware of 500,000 illegals who have been caught at the U.S.-Mexico border in the last three months.
