(ReliableNews.org) – The White House has been downplaying the border crisis for months. Vice President Kamala Harris still has not come up with concrete solutions to solve the crisis even though it has been under her control since March. Meanwhile, Border Patrol is reporting a massive increase in encounters with illegals at the border.
On Tuesday, May 11, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that it had encountered 178,622 undocumented immigrants in April. The number is the highest in 20 years and more than a 900% increase from the 17,106 migrants encountered in 2020. Acting CBP Commissioner Troy Miller said his agency continues to “see a high number of migrants crossing illegally,” but agents are “committed to disrupting criminal organizations” that put migrants in danger.
.@CBP continues to see a high number of migrants crossing illegally between ports of entry along our SW border. We remain committed to disrupting criminal organizations that put migrants in harm's way, working with our partners through Operational Sentinel. Learn more ⬇️ https://t.co/QOS1sKTzr5

The crisis resulted from President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies. Still, the commander-in-chief has made no move to reinstate any of former President Donald Trump’s policies. Instead, it seems the White House will continue letting the problem spiral out of control.
