Customs and Border Protection requested airplanes to fly thousands of illegal aliens to states such as Montana, North Dakota, and Michigan.
CPB has already been using Immigration and Customs Enforcement airplanes to move illegal aliens from the Rio Grande Valley to El Paso, where border agents have greater capacity to process them.
Biden initiated a crisis at the southern border when he eliminated former President Donald Trump‘s remain-in-Mexico asylum policy and signaled his willingness to grant citizenship to millions of illegal aliens.
Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., described Biden’s policies that led to the surge of illegal immigration.
“On day one this administration sought to institute a pause on deportations, end Migrant Protection Protocols, end construction of the border wall, and request from Congress amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants,” he wrote in a letter to DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
The result is a crisis that the Biden administration, calling it a “stressful challenge,” refuses to recognize.
Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., in a press release called the policy “dangerous,” saying it “would put the safety of our North Country community and our border law enforcement officers at risk.”
Stefanik represents New York’s 21st District, which borders Canada.
“This proposal is especially outrageous and untenable at a time when American citizens cannot even cross the Northern Border to visit their family or access their own property,” she said.
She blamed Biden for “most significant southern border crisis in my lifetime,” adding that the $1.9 trillion spending package “included ZERO funding for U.S. Border Patrol.”
Yet, Biden found money for illegal aliens. FEMA sent $110 million to nonprofits and government agencies to provide housing, food, and medicine for illegal aliens.
Congress had allocated the money to help Americans with “food, shelter and supportive…including our nation’s hungry and homeless populations.”
