There has been a massively drastic decrease in the number of migrants being transferred to the U.S. Marshal Service for prosecution under President Joe Biden’s watch, according to an internal Department of Homeland Security memo obtained by The Washington Free Beacon.
During the fiscal year of 2021, only 2,896 illegal migrants had been transferred to the custody of federal authorities whereas, in 2020, there were 13,213 transferred and 20,604 in 2019.
This drop-off in criminal charges against illegal migrants comes at a historic time for southern border crossings — as over 207,000 official encounters occurred last month alone.
Crossing the border illegally is considered a federal misdemeanor. A second arrest for illegal migrants is considered a felony. Those found guilty face fines, and up to two years in prison.
The Biden administration has continuously undercut border security measures and is currently attempting to overturn Title 42, amid one of the largest surges in illegal migration in decades.
In addition to spikes of illegal migrant crossings, last month saw drug seizure numbers fluctuate dramatically with cocaine increasing 62 percent, methamphetamine increasing 14 percent, heroin decreasing 49 percent, and fentanyl seizures decreasing 41 percent.
Biden put a stop to the construction of the border wall, reinstated the catch and release policy, and ended the Remain in Mexico agreement with the Mexican government which dramatically lowered illegal immigration.
A number of Republican senators recently visited the border to see the crisis for themselves firsthand.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) stated on Twitter, “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaigned on open borders and giving free healthcare to illegal aliens.”
Cruz additionally predicted Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas “will be impeached” if Republicans get sworn into office come January.
The Texas Republican continued by stating, “If the president wants to hide from it if the corporate media wants to ignore it, we need to have a trial on the floor of the Senate where every one of the bodies, every one of the 100,000 people who have overdosed in this past year,” gets justice.
The various communities along the Southern Border are suffering, and it is all thanks to the Biden administration’s policies that have allowed nefarious individuals — including dangerous drug cartels and suspected terrorists — to enter the country, and wreak havoc on the American people.
