Stephen Miller, former immigration adviser to the Trump White House, recently appeared on Fox News to discuss the border crisis that has occurred under the Biden administration.
Miller claimed that resettling large numbers of illegal immigrants in the country may be considered an “impeachable offense” by Joe Biden. He and host Tucker Carlson discussed the detrimental effects that the crisis has had on the nation over the last six months.
According to Miller, the current situation is unparalleled in the history of the world, with a large number of illegal border crossers being resettled in the country in violation of the law.
He pointed out that the Constitution clearly obligates the government to protect any state against invasion and domestic violence.
This means that it is not necessary for the invasion to be led by a state actor, but any large-scale, unwelcome, uninvited entry into the country or state can be considered an invasion.
Carlson suggested that Governor Greg Abbott of Texas, who commands the Texas National Guard, could stop the crisis by shutting the border tonight with Mexico.
Miller responded by saying that the Supreme Court has the constitutional right to strike down the entire scheme, which he considers to be a blatant violation of the constitutional Republican form of government. He believes that Biden has violated every single commitment he made to the American people when he took his oath of office.
Miller’s concerns are not unfounded. Recently, the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability held a hearing called “On The Front Lines of the Border Crisis: A Hearing with Chief Patrol Agents.” During this hearing, U.S. Border Patrol Chiefs testified about the crisis on the southern border and how Biden’s policies have made things worse.
John Modlin, Chief Patrol Agent for the Tucson Sector, testified that apprehensions at the southern border have increased dramatically under the Biden administration.
In 2020, there were 66,000 total encounters, but that figure nearly tripled in 2021 and quadrupled last year, closing 2022 with over 250,000 encounters in Tucson, Arizona.
This is a 257% increase in just two years. Agents also responded to over 3,500 lost or distressed migrants who needed to be rescued or required emergency medical care, putting agents’ lives in danger.
Gloria Chavez, Chief Patrol Agent for the Rio Grande Valley sector, discussed how drug cartels are exploiting vulnerable sections of the southern border. The Rio Grande Valley is identified as a major corridor by cartels and transnational criminal organizations, and it is exploited daily for human smuggling, narcotics trafficking, and other illicit activities.
Chavez believes that there needs to be a balance between immigration and border security and that it is necessary to get serious about it. She stated that border patrol agents work hard every day to secure the border for the country and care about the American people.
In conclusion, Miller’s concerns about the border crisis and the detrimental effects it is having on the nation cannot be ignored. It is important for the government to take appropriate measures to secure the border and prevent further illegal immigration.
