On December 21, a pandemic-era health and deportation policy is set to expire which has some predicting that a whopping 14,000 illegal aliens will cross America’s southern border each day in the coming months and years.
The Biden administration seems adamant that it will not renew Title 42, a rule which allowed the government to remove illegal immigrants in an expedited fashion due to public health concerns. According to Axios, officials are now “concerned” that border stations will be overwhelmed by the deluge of individuals from around the globe who will soon attempt to enter the country.
That means that by December 30, or nine days after Title 42 expires, 126,000 illegal aliens will have crossed the border if projections are accurate. For visualization purposes, that would shatter the Michigan Wolverines’ “Big House” record of 115,000 college football fans at a home game.
At that rate, in 9 days, 126,000 illegal aliens will have crossed the border.

Or as Congressman Troy Nehls (R-TX) explained, “Title 42 is one of the last defense measures used to prevent illegal immigration, and it expires next week. 14,000 illegal aliens a day are expected to pour over our southern border. That’s 5.1 million a year. We no longer have a crisis. It’s a full-scale invasion.”

Already, the border is seeing a massive uptick in daily crossings. Even MSNBC is calling it a “tragic humanitarian crisis.”

Curiously, California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom visited the border on Monday to call attention to the issue. Newsom — who has oft-championed sanctuary policies that shield illegal aliens from deportation — is now warning that his state will be terribly burdened due to the Biden administration’s malfeasance.
Yet it seems that the governor’s idea to solve the problem is not closing the border but rather imploring other states and the federal government to increase welfare benefits for illegal aliens.
“The federal government is sending more and more flights, and more and more buses directly here to California because this state is doing what no other state’s doing,” Newsom told ABC News, “and that’s absorbing and protecting and preserving our values and advancing them by doing health care screenings, and taking care of folks, and the more we do, the burden is placed disproportionately on us.”
That brings us to another point. Axios said that the White House is “bracing” for the surge, but as pointed out by political strategist Ryan Girdusky, “Biden isn’t bracing for anything. Biden is causing 14,000 migrants a day. This is a full invasion into the United States and the president is choosing to do nothing.”
Indeed, so far the only Biden administration response has been, “The Administration is committed to continuing to secure our borders while maintaining safe, orderly, and humane processing of migrants. This will remain the case when Title 42 is lifted.”
The only takeaway is that anybody who thinks the Biden administration wants to solve this issue, or can be negotiated into fixing it through bipartisanship, is delusional.
