The Biden Administration Is Accelerating The Illegal Border Invasion

Panama has dramatically shortened the notorious Darien Gap route from South America for the first time.

The number of foreign nationals not from Mexico or Central America is at the highest level in American history, amid illegal migration already at record-breaking levels overall.
Such nationals range from 40 to 50 percent of all who reach the southern border since the Biden administration carved exemptions in the pandemic-related Title 42 instant expulsion policy.
