Congressman Issa Calls For Border Security Amid Rising Migrant Encounters

Tension at the U.S.-Mexico border amid migrant surge

California Republican Congressman Darrell Issa has raised concerns about the current border crisis, emphasizing the need for President Biden to address the issue through executive action. Issa highlighted the impact of executive decisions, such as eliminating the 'remain in Mexico' policy, which he believes have contributed to the surge in illegal immigration.

Issa pointed out that existing international laws require individuals to apply for asylum in the first country they reach, underscoring the importance of enforcing these laws. He criticized the parole policies that have allowed individuals to enter the country without proper vetting, citing a recent tragic incident involving a suspected murderer who entered the U.S. under questionable circumstances.

Regarding the influx of migrants in the San Diego sector, Issa expressed alarm at the significant increase in encounters compared to previous years. He rejected the idea of passing a border bill that could normalize high daily entry rates, emphasizing the need to prioritize border security and enforcement of existing laws.

Issa criticized what he described as a political strategy by the Democrats to benefit from demographic changes resulting from mass migration. He argued that the current administration's policies could have long-term negative consequences for the country.

Issa called for decisive action to secure the border, suggesting that the president has the authority to temporarily shut down the border to address the backlog of asylum cases and ensure national security. He emphasized the importance of balancing immigration reform with border enforcement to prevent further tragedies and protect American interests.

In conclusion, Issa underscored the urgent need for a comprehensive approach to immigration that prioritizes border security and upholds the rule of law. He urged the administration to take immediate steps to address the border crisis and prevent further harm to the country.
