Russians, Ukrainians Take Advantage of Biden’s Free-for-All on the Southern Border as They Flee Eastern Europe – Thousands have Already Come to the US Through Mexico
Since taking office, Biden has opened the floodgates on the US-Mexico border, capturing the attention of the whole world.
In summary, he placed a welcome sign on the door, marked the floor to point intruders to where they could pick up their taxpayer-funded plane tickets, and sent them on their way with additional goodies – including hotel rooms, food, supplies, and even cash — all paid for by the US taxpayer.
It's no surprise that a record number of migrants have crossed the border illegally in the last 13 months. Not to mention the endless amount of intruders who can slip past unnoticed. This is a foreign invasion like none America has ever seen.
People from all over the world have been flocking to America's southern border to take advantage of the free-for-all, including Ukrainians and Russians, who have begun to appear more regularly as the continuing crisis between their home nations deepens.
According to a recent Reuters story, a "growing number" of Russian and Ukrainian "refugees" have discovered a method to exploit Biden's foreigner-first border policy and are landing in the Southern US to seek asylum as they flee Putin's assault of Eastern Europe.
These so-called "asylum seekers" are purportedly purchasing plane tickets to Mexico, purchasing inexpensive junk vehicles, and driving north across the border to get the Biden administration's desired refugee status.
“A growing number of Russians and Ukrainians are traveling to Mexico, buying throwaway cars and driving across the border into the United States to seek asylum, a trend that could accelerate as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has forced more than a million people to flee their homes.”
Not only are they purchasing plane tickets and traveling halfway around the world to seek asylum in the United States, but this new wave of refugees from Eastern Europe are likely to have passed through multiple other countries that would have qualified as the "first country of asylum" for these "refugees," and thus should not be eligible for asylum in the United States, according to Trump's Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which are still in effect.
This flood of Russians and Ukrainians did not begin with Putin's invasion of Ukraine. Instead, it has been going on for some months, growing in intensity as the potential of conflict in the region grew. According to US border officials, around 6,400 Russians were seen between October 2021 and January 2022, which is much more than the total number observed in the fiscal year 2021 (4,100).
As more people are displaced as a result of Putin's invasion, the number is projected to skyrocket. The number of interactions for February and March has not yet been reported, so there is no news on how great of an uptick border officers are now experiencing.
Over the same four-month period, the number of Ukrainians detained crossing the US border surged considerably, with over 1,000 apprehended between October and January, a significant rise over the previous year's statistics (680).
Despite the long journeys and other countries where they may seek refuge, "almost all" Russians and Ukrainians who make it to the United States have been permitted to stay, according to Reuters. Russians have been arriving in such large numbers in recent months that they are now one of the top three nationalities in several border-area migrant shelters.
“Since June, Russians have consistently been among the top three nationalities arriving at a San Diego shelter, according to data published by the San Diego Rapid Response Network, a coalition of nonprofits, attorneys, and community leaders. Last week, Ukrainians were the third-most-common nationality among arrivals.
The CBP figures include only migrants who arrived before Russia’s Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine. But one current and one former border official who spoke with Reuters on condition of anonymity said there could be further increases as the fighting has intensified.”
According to statistics, as many as 2,000,000 Ukrainian people have already departed the country, and we are just in the midst of week three. That figure presumably does not include Russian citizens fleeing the area, so by the end of this, the figure may be in the millions - and that is just if the fighting is limited within Ukraine's borders. There is no knowing how many people will be displaced if a larger-scale battle breaks out.
Just one question: now that the Russians are engaged, will Biden and the DC Swamp take action on border security?
