Biden Gives Crime a Free Pass, Compromises Our Safety

The crisis on the border has spiraled so far out of control thanks to President Joe Biden’s open border policy, that the world’s most dangerous criminals are tripping over each other to try and enter our country.

Since Biden took office, more than 2.3 million illegals have entered the U.S. — that’s the highest number of illegal crossings in U.S. Border Patrol history.

But that’s not all.

In 2023 alone, a historically high volume of known terrorists were caught trying to enter the U.S. — with an estimated 151 people on the FBI’s terrorism watch list identified on our southern border.

Some government estimates say that number is closer to 230 — but regardless, the information is alarming and it should send shivers down the spine of every American — regardless of one’s political affiliation.

By comparison, just 15 people on the FBI’s terrorism watch list were caught trying to enter the U.S. through our southern border back in 2021. Today that number is over 200.

Think about it. There’s a reason why there are road signs posted around prisons and jails warning drivers, "Do Not Pick Up Hitchhikers" — because you don’t know who they are or what their background is.

It’s for your safety.

But sadly, that same common sense doesn’t apply to our southern border — and Joe Biden is allowing everybody to enter the U.S. — including the world’s most dangerous and violent criminals — no questions asked.

The situation is so bad that lawmakers in Washington, D.C. and national security experts are all very concerned about a potential terrorist attack because of the kinds of dangerous criminals we’ve allowed to sneak into the country through our southern border.

And these national security experts are not just Republicans — they’re Democrats and Independents who are all worried about our safety.

If you can cut a hole in a wire fence and sneak right in – welcome to Joe Biden’s America. And that’s exactly what is happening. Every single day.

But forget about what national security experts are saying, or who’s trying to enter the U.S. on our terrorist watch list database — because according to Joe Biden — the real threat to American lives is not the known terrorists and dangerous criminals crossing our border — it’s Donald Trump.

During a speech at a Chicago fundraiser on Wednesday night, Biden told a small, unenthusiastic crowd at a downtown hotel that:

"He [Trump] said the biggest threat, the biggest threat, is these criminals coming across the border. Well, folks, the biggest threat is Trump and what he poses for our democracy."

Wait, what?

To suggest that Trump — the 45th president of the United States — who worked hard to secure our border during his presidency and keep the world’s most dangerous people out of our country — is the real threat and not the terrorists and violent criminals entering our through our borders is one of the most irresponsible statements ever made by a commander in chief.

And the bad guys must be celebrating because the president just gave them a free pass.

The terrorists, violent criminals, Biden’s open border policy — and now his dangerous statements are creating a scenario leaving Americans vulnerable to another Sept. 11, 2001-styled attack.

It’s unavoidable given the trajectory we now find ourselves on.

Terrorists are certainly dangerous — but so are words.

America is a little less safer today than it was yesterday — and we can thank Biden.
