Biden Laughs at the Border Surge

Illegal immigrants flooded the border as Title 42 came to an end, and the Biden administration isn’t helping.

By the Republican National Committee



  • Illicit drugs are flowing into the country at an alarming rate, with only 5 to 10 percent being intercepted as border officials struggle to contain the smuggling.
  • Fentanyl is now the leading cause of death for Americans age 18 to 45, with the number killed by the drug up 94 percent since 2019.
    • Of the 110,000 fatal drug overdoses in 2022, two-thirds involved fentanyl; on average, one person in the U.S. now dies from a fentanyl overdose every seven minutes.
    • According to Biden’s own DEA Administrator Anne Milgram, cartels are “killing Americans with fentanyl at catastrophic and record rates like we’ve never seen before.”
    • Since Biden took office, nearly 19 tons of fentanyl have crossed the southern border, enough to kill 8.6 billion people.


  • Despite Biden’s promise of a “fair and humane immigration system,” his open border policies aren’t compassionate; they are deadly.
  • At the beginning of this month, Border Patrol discovered 45 illegal immigrants packed inside a 35 degree refrigerated trailer surrounded by rotting produce.
  • Last month, a pickup truck carrying 12 illegal immigrants rolled over during a high-speed chase – with seven managing to get away. 
  • Tens of thousands of migrant children who have come to the U.S. are being exploited and forced into de facto “indentured servitude.”
    • Biden’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) lost track of 85,000 children after responding to Biden’s demands to “move the children quickly out of shelters” by rolling back important vetting and safeguard procedures.
  • Criminals are flooding across the border, with Border Patrol arresting illegal immigrants accused of aggravated battery, murder, and sexual assault of a minor all within the past month.
  • Meanwhile, Border Patrol agents have been left demoralized and “overwhelmed” by the Biden administration’s handling of the crisis.


  • With Title 42 ending, the Biden administration has been wholly unprepared for a surge in illegal immigration.
    • Even before the end of Title 42, Border Patrol officials reported that their facilities were already “at capacity.”
    • Biden’s only solution, which has since been blocked by a federal judge, has been to mass release illegal immigrants into border communities.
  • Even Democrats are finally starting to speak out on Biden’s border crisis now that it has reached their backyards.
    • Kathy Hochul (D-NY) says New York City is “bursting at the seams” with illegal immigrants, warning “you’re gonna start seeing people living in tents – not just on the border, but on the streets of New York.”
    • Asked “where the heck” is Biden regarding this crisis, New York City Mayor Eric Adams said “that is a good question.”
  • Meanwhile, Biden and “border czar” Kamala Harris are nowhere to be seen on the crisis, with each only having visited the border once since taking office.
