By The Blaze. President Joe Biden’s immigration policies are driving the migrant surge and ensuing border crisis, according to a Customs and Border Protection intelligence alert that was issued earlier this month.
Despite the largest wave of migrants in two decades overwhelming American immigration resources, Biden’s administration has refused to acknowledge the humanitarian crisis unfolding at the southern U.S. border. They have, literally, refused to call the situation a “crisis.”
Instead, the White House blames problems in the Northern Triangle region of Central America — which includes Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador — for the push of migrants north to America.
“The president does not feel that children coming to our border seeking refuge from violence, economic hardships, and other dire circumstances is a crisis,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said this week. “He does feel that the crisis in Central America — the dire circumstances that many are fleeing from — that that is a situation we need to spend our time or effort on and we need to address it if we’re going to prevent more of an influx of migrants from coming in years to come.

Former Bush, Trump Officials Lobby Joe Biden to Bring More Refugees to U.S.
By Breitbart. Former administration officials who worked for Presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump are lobbying President Joe Biden to bring more refugees to the United States. . .
Biden had kept the refugee cap at 15,000 for this fiscal year but following backlash from the refugee and migration lobby, as well as Democrats, his administration reversed course and now says they plan to increase the number of refugees admitted to the U.S.
In a letter to Biden this month, former Bush and Trump administration officials are asking Biden to surge the number of refugees admitted this fiscal year by more than 316 percent.
The letter states:
We are writing in response to your administration’s recent decision to maintain the historically low refugee cap of 15,000 with the expectation that you will increase it by May 15, 2021. We are deeply disappointed that U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) has not yet been fortified, and we encourage your Administration to be more transparent and forthcoming with information regarding increases to the USRAP.

‘I Can’t Get to Central America Soon Enough’: Kamala Says Migrant Surge Will ‘Not Be Solved Overnight’ as She Prepares to Meet With Central American Leaders – but Still Makes No Mention of a Trip to the Border
By Daily Mail. Kamala Harris said in a Sunday interview that she hasn’t visited Central America in her capacity as border ‘czar’ yet because of coronavirus complications.
‘Yes, we’re working on a plan to get there, we’re working through COVID issues,’ Harris told CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ as she pushes her position on addressing ‘root causes’ in Northern Triangle countries that cause citizens to flee to the U.S. ‘I can’t get there soon enough.’
‘That is a big part of what is going on,’ the vice president continued.
Earlier this month, Harris said that she is planning a visit ‘soon’ to Guatemala with a stop in Mexico. Later her administration said the trip is being planned for June.
She said, however, that she will not be visiting the border during that trip because Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is in charge of addressing the crisis there.
