With little or no notice to local officials, the Biden administration is placing in towns across the nation young illegal aliens who are part of the massive surge in border crossings.
Sen. Todd Young, R-Ind., told the Washington Examiner’s “Secrets” column the development is the “reckless” result of Biden’s effort to erase President Trump’s immigration legacy.
“The administration’s only giving lip service to our border crisis,” he said. “They think that simply asking migrants not to illegally enter our country is sufficient when clearly it’s not, and the continued crippling influx at the border proves it’s not.”
Vice President Kamala Harris’ refusal to go to the border despite being designated Biden’s border czar is further proof, the senator said.
Young, who is running for reelection in 2022, served on the border as a U.S. Marine Corps intelligence officer during the Clinton-era immigration crisis.
Noting a 45% surge in unaccompanied illegal alien minors being sent to Indiana, he described the situation he recently observed at the border.
“The cartels traffic individuals, first by plane, and then, they load young children and others into these vehicles and drive them to these designated drop-off points.” he said.
“It was like observing clown cars drive up to one of these designated drop-off points and unload. You had the coyotes, members of the cartel, in front, and behind them were illegals, many of which, perhaps, most of which were children. And it was brazen.”
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee have asked Congress to investigate the Biden administration’s handling of the unaccompanied minors, the Examiner’s Paul Bedard reported.
“These experiences sow seeds of mistrust in our communities, and work to intentionally subvert the will of the people for a secure border and a clear, lawful immigration process,” they said in a letter to a Senate committee.
The governors also expressed concern about the number of migrants from countries designated as sponsors of terrorism.
Young said that Biden’s administration’s immigration policy appears to be driven by its “viscerally dislikes” of Trump.
“And that led them to recklessly repeal President Trump’s important and effective border policies,” said Young. ”
And now, all of America’s paying the price, and I will say this is being felt across the heartland as well.”
