An illegal immigrant from Africa crossed the border and praised President Joe Biden for the opportunity to be in the United States. This should serve as a reminder that while the administration claims the border is secure, illegal aliens continue to enter the United States as they please. The man expressed his gratitude in a video obtained by Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, saying, “I love you, Joe Biden, thank you for everything, Joe Biden! I’m a good person, I want to be a good person here in the United States.”
The African illegal immigrant further explained their reason for coming to the U.S. – to pursue a better life and job opportunities. He stated, “I came here because I want [a] quality life, America is a land of opportunity.” He also mentioned their plan to go to New York City.
This event highlights the fact that people are not coming to seek asylum due to war-torn and impoverished countries but to simply seek economic opportunities in the U.S. According to Fox News, many immigrants coming through the Arizona border are from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, and they are not seeking asylum but are looking for work and opportunities in America.
The news report also noted that the Fox News correspondent interviewed an African illegal immigrant in the same location where the man showed his appreciation for President Biden. The immigrant admitted that he did not care if American taxpayers had to pay for him once he arrived in New York.
The same location in Arizona had previously released an African illegal immigrant who was wanted in Senegal for alleged “terroristic activities.” The man was unwittingly released by Border Patrol officials in October and was later arrested in New York City. This incident raises questions about the vetting process and the potential risks posed by illegal immigrants entering the country.
The situation has escalated to the point where more than 12,000 illegal immigrants were encountered at the southern border in a single day, the highest daily total ever recorded. The influx is not limited to people from Latin American countries, as there is now a flood of “single, adult men” from African, Middle Eastern, and Asian countries.
The alarming numbers of immigrants crossing into the U.S. raise concerns about border security and the capacity of law enforcement to manage the situation. It is also evident that many of the illegal immigrants are aware of the leniency in the asylum system and are taking advantage of it to enter the country without legitimate reasons for seeking asylum.
The situation is further aggravated by the continuous taunting of Americans and law enforcement by immigrants and human smugglers. They seem to be aware of the lax enforcement and view the U.S. border as an open gateway to fulfilling their desires.
This issue prompts the need for a comprehensive and sustainable solution to address border security and the influx of illegal immigrants. The current administration needs to take tangible steps to secure the border and prevent the entry of individuals who pose potential risks to national security.
Overall, the situation at the southern border demands urgent attention and effective measures to safeguard the country’s borders and provide a secure environment for citizens and legal immigrants.
