Joe Biden’s Open Border Policies Attract Convicted Sexual Predators To Come To America

Joe Biden’s failed Far Left open border policies are attracting individuals with heinous convictions, including rapes of incapacitated children to the United States. 
Since October 1, 2024, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol have arrested 54 convicted sexual predators including multiple child rapists attempting to enter our country illegally at the Del Rio sector along our Southern Border.  
Del Rio is just one of the nine sectors that make up our Southern Border, and these are just the individuals that Border Patrol Agents were able to apprehend. There is no telling how many of the estimated 1.8 million "gotaways" who have entered our country illegally since Biden took office have similar convictions.
MAKE NO MISTAKE: The Biden border crisis has turned every community into a border community, destroyed countless American families, and jeopardized our security and safety. House Republicans know that border security is national security, and we know the best way to secure our borders is by reimplementing President Trump's successful policies. That is why we passed the strongest border security bill in history to put an end to the Biden border crisis. 
  • Since Joe Biden took office:
    • There have been OVER 9 MILLION illegal immigrant encounters nationwide. 
    • There have been OVER 7.4  MILLION illegal immigrant encounters at our Southern Border.
    • There have been 1.8 million known gotaways who evaded U.S. Border Patrol.  
    • Immigration judges have thrown out approximately 200,000 deportation cases because DHS did not file the required "Notice to Appear" (NTA) by the time of the scheduled hearing.
  • In February, there were 189,922 illegal immigrants encountered at the Southern Border. 
    • February was the 36th straight month where monthly illegal immigrant encounters have been higher than even the highest month seen under President Trump. 
  • An average of 5,000 illegal immigrants are being released into the U.S. every day.
  • Under Biden, over 340 of these individuals whose names appear on the terrorist watchlist were stopped trying to cross the Southern Border.
    • So far in FY24, there have been 69 individuals whose names appear on the terrorist watch list who have been stopped trying to enter the U.S. illegally between ports of entry at the Southern Border.
    • This total is more than the encounters in all FY17, FY18, FY19, FY20, FY21, and FY22 combined. 
  • Over 20,000 Communist Chinese nationals have illegally crossed the Southern Border since FY24 began in October. 
    • Communist Chinese nationals are exploiting Joe Biden’s failed Far Left open border policies at “record-breaking figures,” becoming “the fastest-growing demographic entering the country illegally.”
    • The surge in Communist Chinese nationals encountered at our Southern Border has raised serious concerns that the Chinese Communist Party is exploiting the Biden border crisis for nefarious reasons.
  • Biden’s Far Left open border policies are to blame for this historic crisis. 
    • There are OVER 60 instances of Joe Biden and his Administration taking actions that undermined our nation’s border security, including halting the construction of the border wall. 
    • In August 2022, Biden and his Administration decided to make the border crisis WORSE by formally ending former President Trump’s successful ‘Remain in Mexico’ program.”
    • The Biden Administration announced on May 10, 2023, that it would allow for the release of some migrants into the U.S. with no way to track them. 
      • Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has now admitted that 40 percent of catch-and-release migrants have disappeared.  
  • Force the Biden Administration to restart construction of the border wall.
  • Deploy technology to the Southern and Northern Border.
  • Increase the number of Border Patrol agents and provide bonus pay.
  • Require transparency regarding illegal crossings from the Department of Homeland Security.
  • Strengthen current law to protect unaccompanied children from human trafficking.
  • End catch-and-release.
  • End abuse of executive immigration authority.
  • Strengthen and streamline the asylum process.
