The Biden administration’s lax border policies are resulting in the Arizona border city of Yuma being pushed to the brink of collapse as it deals with a massive surge in illegal immigrants, with the region’s critical food production coming under threat, a local official said.
A Yuma official told Fox News that a surge of migrants crossing the border has overloaded food banks and hospitals and blamed the president for encouraging the individuals to make the trek:
“They’re coming because they said that Biden told them to come, that we have an open border,” said Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines.
“It will only get worse with Biden’s policies,” the supervisor said. “He needs to reassess.”
Lines described an “unprecedented amount” of migrants coming across the border, unlike anything he has seen over previous presidencies during his tenure of over 30 years.

A major border city is on the brink of collapse because of Biden’s immigration policies, local official says
A major border city is on the brink of collapse as the migrant surge under President Biden’s leadership overloads food banks and hospitals and threatens food security, a Yuma official told Fox News.
“Policies need to be changed when you see an unprecedented amount of people coming across the border that even supersedes what we saw under any of the other presidents for the past 30 years,” Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines told Fox News. “And they’re coming because they said that Biden told them to come, that we have an open border.”
“It will only get worse with Biden’s policies,” Lines said. “He needs to reassess.”
Around 5 million migrants have crossed through the southern border into the U.S. since Biden took office, according to Customs and Border Protection. Border Patrol’s Yuma sector saw a 171% increase in migrant crossings between 2021 and 2022.
Meanwhile, 1.2 million illegal migrants have escaped Border Patrol since Biden took office, CBP sources told Fox News on Sunday.
“The problem that we’re foreseeing right now is there’s a couple of big waves coming,” a Yuma resident and fifth-generation farmer, Hank Auza, told Fox News. “Yuma can’t support that. It will overwhelm the system here.”
This is simply not sustainable.

Also, the cartels have way too much control.
The southern border is under siege from the cartels.
The #BidenBorderCrisis is a man-made crisis – and President Biden has only fueled the raging fire.

Mexican cartels are highly active in the border regions and collected an estimated $13 billion in profits in 2022, up from $500 million in 2018, The New York Times reported.
In fact, more than 100 known or suspected terrorists were arrested along the southern border in 2022, which is far higher than the 26 arrests made in the previous five years combined.

Vote democrat, the city you help destroy could be your own! We all had a man in office that loved this country and was trying to bring it back from the edge of destruction, But what we got was an idiot that is helping to push this country over the edge every day, someone who has no concern for the American people and our country whatsoever.I pray that we all learn a lesson from this complete failure of common sense and criminal behavior.
