Warning that President Biden’s executive orders on immigration are creating what will be a “catastrophic” border crisis after the COVID-19 pandemic passes, former acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan is urging states to take the lead in containing the fallout.

In 2019, “because of the loopholes and the broken immigration system,” CBP and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “had to release 500,000 illegal immigrants into the country,” Morgan told the John Solomon Reports podcast. In 2020, by contrast, “that number for CBP is less than 1,000,” he said.

Morgan fears that the number of illegal immigrants entering the country could spike to 3,500 per day under Biden, should his administration curb the authority currently being exercised by the CDC under Title 42 to suspend entries into the U.S. from countries rife with a communicable disease.

“It will be catastrophic,” Morgan said. “Our system will be overwhelmed, our facilities will be maxed out. And who’s going to be in the middle of that? Border Patrol. Who’s going to be on the end of everybody blaming them and coming after them? It’s going to be United States Border Patrol and CBP as a whole. And it’s absolutely unconscionable. It’s absolutely preventable.”

Morgan said that under Biden the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to use Title 42 authority to prevent unaccompanied minors from crossing the border.

“Open border advocates,” Morgan said, “could say ‘Hey, look, DHS, you have the authority to use Title 42 in the middle of a global pandemic when it comes to unaccompanied minors, but you chose not to. So if it’s not an issue for the minors, then why is it an issue for adults?’ They’re actually handing them more fuel to go and challenge Title 42.”

The Biden administration “is becoming an active participant in encouraging, incentivizing, and facilitating illegal migration,” Morgan said.

“With a stroke of a pen, within two hours of taking office,” he added, Biden “made our borders less secure, our country less safe, and has endangered the men and women on the frontlines of our borders protecting our nation, and he’s continuing to double down on it.”

The Biden administration knows that “politically, they can’t get rid of ICE,” Morgan continued. “But he’s basically systematically taken all their enforcement authorities away.”

To preempt or contain the coming border crisis, Morgan urged going to “your state legislator, your governor, your AG” to encourage them to enforce border security, citing as an example of effective state action Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s lawsuit that prevented the Biden administration from ceasing deportations.

“States are gonna have to step up and pass their own legislation to be able to address this,” Morgan said. “The problem is, it’s a resource issue, you know, even a state like the great state of Texas, they don’t have the resources.”

Sen. Blackburn asks Biden admin why U.S. spending $284K per migrant family to keep them in hotels

“The cost to taxpayers for housing 1,200 migrant families for six months is about $71,000 per person,” the Tennessee senator says.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn has done the math.

The Tennessee Republican’s interest was piqued after the Biden administration announced its intention to spend nearly $87 million to house 1,200 foreigners who illegally cross the border in hotel rooms in the U.S.

“As the current contract stands, the cost to taxpayers for housing 1,200 migrant families for six months is about $71,000 per person,” Blackburn wrote in a letter Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting Director Tae Johnson. “For a family of four, that amounts to a shocking $284,000 – enough to buy a small house.”

Earlier this month, the administration awarded ICE an $86.9 million contract through Texas-based nonprofit Endeavors, which will provide hotel rooms near the border for temporary shelter. But Blackburn also questions how the group spends its money.

She said Endeavors in 2018 collected more than $38 million in contributions and grants but noted that “IRS filings show that nearly $22 million or almost half of those contributions went to salaries.”

“This raises questions if half of the $86.9 million in ICE contract proceeds will likewise be allocated toward employee and executive compensation instead of migrant services or housing,” Blackburn wrote in her letter.

She also expressed concerns that Endeavors’ CEO Jon Allman has not provided “specific details about the contract.”

“It is unclear whether this nonprofit has ever previously managed a contract of this magnitude, housed a migrant population of this size or served vulnerable children without putting them at further risk,” Blackburn wrote. “DHS and ICE must provide commitments to assure Congress and the American public that Endeavors is up for the task of securely and efficiently housing illegal immigrants without resulting in waste or abuse of taxpayer dollars, or worse, harming vulnerable migrant children.”

Blackburn asked for answers by April 15.

Trump Addresses Border Crisis in Wedding Speech at Mar-a-Lago

Former President Donald Trump lamented the worsening crisis on the southern border during a brief speech at a wedding party at his resort in Palm Beach, Florida, over the weekend.

“The border is the worst anybody has ever seen it. And what you see now, multiply it times 10,” Trump said according to a video obtained by TMZ.

“What’s happening to the kids—they’re living in squalor. They are living like nobody has ever seen anybody,” he added. “It’s going to be—look, it’s a disaster. It’s a humanitarian disaster from their standpoint and it’s going to destroy the country. And frankly, the country can’t afford it because you’re talking about massive, just incredibly massive amounts—and that’s our school systems, our hospital systems, everything.”

President Joe Biden revoked or put on hold more than a dozen Trump-era immigration directives and policies. Some experts say the revocations are to blame for the flood of unaccompanied minors and family units crossing the border illegally.

“They have the airplane photos—they call them shots—and these things are showing thousands of people coming over from South America,” Trump said.

“So it’s a rough thing and I just say, ‘do you miss me yet?’ Trump said to cheers from the crowd.

The former president also touched on the Biden administration’s handling of the relationships with China and Iran.

“China … they never treated us that way right? You saw what happened a few days ago? It was terrible,” the former president said in an apparent reference to a rebuke a top Chinese official delivered on U.S. soil earlier this month to Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

The Trump administration had imposed massive tariffs on China and crippling sanctions on Iran.

“They’re telling me about China. They’re telling me about Iran. How are we doing with Iran? How do you like that? Boy, they were ready to make a deal. They would have done anything. They would have done anything and this guy goes and he drops the sanctions,” Trump said in reference to Biden withdrawing sanctions on Iran in February.

Trump also touched on the topic of the election, raising doubts about Biden’s come-from-behind victory.

“We did get 75 million votes. Nobody’s ever gotten that,” the former president said. “They said get 66 million votes, sir, and the election is over. Well, I got 75 million and you saw what happened.”

VIDEO: Cruz says there’s no social distancing in ‘Biden cages,’ releases photos

“There was no six foot space, there was no three foot space, there wasn’t a three inch space between the children lined up one after the other after the other,” Cruz said at a news conference during a visit to the border.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called the surge of illegal activity at the southern border a “man-made crisis” by the Biden administration.

“It is a tragedy and it is a man-made crisis. This was avoidable. This was preventable and regardless of your party, Republican or Democrat, you should look at what’s going on here and say enough is enough,” Cruz said at a news conference on Friday during a visit to the border.

Cruz and Texas Sen. John Cornyn led a delegation of Republican senators to view the conditions on the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas.

“All of us today witnessed the Biden cages. What is occurring here on the border is heartbreaking and it is a tragedy,” Cruz said.

“We have an army of TV cameras here. It is striking that not a single one of these cameras is allowed in the Donna facility,” he added, referring to the Biden administration prohibiting media access to facilities along the border.

“We requested that media accompany us in the facility. The Biden administration said no. The Trump administration allowed media inside facilities like that. The Obama administration allowed media inside facilities like that. The George W. Bush administration had. The Bill Clinton administration had but the Biden administration wants to hide what is going on here,” he said.

Cruz said the Donna facility was built with a capacity of 250 but has nearly 4,000 migrants in it during the coronavirus pandemic.

“We saw cages after cages after cages of little girls, of little boys lying side by side touching each other; covered with reflective emergency blankets,” said Cruz, who posted photos of his observations. “There was no six foot space, there was no three foot space, there wasn’t a three inch space between the children lined up one after the other after the other.”

Cruz said the GOP senators also encountered a group of children who just tested positive for COVID-19.

“The Donna facility alone reports roughly 10% of the individuals being held there are testing positive for COVID-19 at rates dramatically higher than the US population and the Biden administration is taking people who are testing positive for COVID-19 and locking them in cages side by side,” he said. “This is inhumane. It is wrong and it is the direct consequence of policy decisions by the Biden administration to stop building the wall; to return to catch and release and to end the ‘Stay in Mexico’ policy.”
