One Million Legal Immigrants Was the Congressional Limit! by The Elephant's Child

Congress declared some time ago that we could probably accept about one million immigrants a year. I don’t think they specified “legal” immigrants. They just set the number at one million. Well, July is the beginning of the second half of the year, and reportedly, from CNN, one million have already crossed the border since last October. A Panamanian official warns that there are terrorists among those seeking to cross the border. In June, more than 6,300 people on average have been encountered crossing the border every day, citing the 21 day average.

So naturally, in response, Joe Biden says he’s going to invite back all the illegals that Trump deported. ,These Southern Border numbers do not include the annual steady stream of roughly one million legal immigrants, the 800,000 temporary visa workers, or the people who overstay their legal visas. Joe Biden seems to have an obsession with undoing whatever Trump did, without the slightest consideration of whether the thing Trump did was a good accomplishment or a mistake. If Trump did it, it was, to Biden, clearly wrong. This is not healthy thinking. He seems to have no understanding of the whole idea of “illegal immigration,”

In May, 230.000 migrants crossed the border , 120,000 got through the border, including 100,000 job seekers. DHS Secretary Mayorkas is trying to expand migration across the border by widening many side doors in the nations migration laws, and his is expanding opportunities for illegal and legal migrants to get green cards from Americans. Overall migration legal, illegal, temporary and permanent may hit 2.5 million in Biden’s first year in office.

Good luck to the roughly four million young Americans who will enter the labor force in 2021. Migration ups the competition for jobs and housing that our own kids need. Migration damages American’s career opportunities, cuts their wages, raises their rents and curbs their productivity, and shrinks their political clout. It’s really not just a matter of being nice to young folks that want to come to America. Even GOP leaders have characterized this all as a chaotic border crisis, cruel to migrants, and useful to the drug cartels. Federal agents say they have seen a 4,000 percent increase in Fentanyl coming over the border in the last three years.
