BY THE NUMBERS: Biden’s Immigration Nightmare

NumbersUSA in an email gave the below data behind the Biden’s Border Disaster. Here they are for your information:

  • 1.8 million. That’s how many people the Border Patrol caught trying to sneak across the border in the last 12 reported months. That’s the most ever, a four-fold increase in one year. Unfortunately, being caught doesn’t mean being sent back.
  • 3,000. That’s how few removals have taken place each month recently. While the number of people entering America illegally is exploding, removals have plunged by 85 percent from just a couple of years ago. And then there’s the hundreds of thousands of border-crossers who got away. With so many illegal aliens coming in, and so few being sent out, Pres. Biden could double the cumulative number of illegal aliens in America in just five or six years!
  • 4%. That’s the tiny rejection rate of H-1B visa applicants last year. That’s down from 13% from the previous year, which in itself was the Trump Administration’s abysmally low rate of protection of skilled American workers’ jobs. The H-1B program, which usually grants work visas to 180,000 workers a year, has been rife with fraud, but the Biden administration is accepting just about every application.
  • -2.7%. That’s a negative number! That’s how much real wages have fallen in the last year, because wages haven’t risen nearly as fast as inflation. The timing is devastating for workers: while illegal immigration had fallen over the previous few years, real wages had grown 14% since 2014, the first real sustained growth in decades. Now those gains are slipping away.
  • 61.9%. That’s the portion of the U.S. adult population in the workforce. That’s only half-way back from the coronavirus shutdown of the U.S. economy, and it represents an improvement of only 0.2% in the last sixteen months. So yes, unemployment is dropping, but American workers are not coming back to the workforce
  • 3 1/2 million. That’s how many net jobs are still lost for U.S.- born workers since the start of the pandemic. Jobs for foreign-born workers, meanwhile, are already back to an all-time high.

Roy Beck, NumbersUSA founder and president said,

The key factor in immigration policy is choosing the right number of authorized immigrants for future years. To choose a lower number does not imply anything negative about the immigrants who already are legally in this country. We’re talking about the future number that is best for both U.S.-born and foreign-born citizens.

“Every government in the world has the obligation to decide what immigration number is right for the community in its care. My greatest concern is how the number that is chosen will affect our grandchildren’s grandchildren. Will we condemn them to live packed in a highly regimented country approaching a billion people? Or will we make it possible for them to enjoy the qualities of life we today hold the most dear?”
