For Biden, irregular immigration continues to be a stumbling block

The situation at the southern border of the United States continues to prove problematic. On Thursday, about a hundred immigrants broke through a defensive barrier. Not only. CNN also reported that federal law enforcement has opened an investigation after Border Patrol arrested a Lebanese illegal immigrant in El Paso, Basel Bassel Ebbadi, who said he belonged to Hezbollah and had entered the United States to “make a bomb.” “I believe that over the last five years we have seen an increase in the number of known or suspected terrorists attempting to cross the southern border,” the FBI director also said last week, Chris Wraytestifying before the Intelligence Committee of the House of Representatives.

Another aspect to consider is the number of illegal immigrants arriving at the southern border with Mexico. In December, the very high figure of 249,785 arrests was recorded. The situation had improved in January, with arrests falling to 124,220. Yet last month, the numbers started to rise again, reaching 140,644. Let's remember that, since when Joe Biden is in the White House, the historic record of arrivals of illegal immigrants at the southern border was recorded. There are undoubtedly structural causes underlying this situation, including the instability and violence present in various areas of Central America. However, on the other hand it is no mystery that, during the election campaign, the current president, in order to distance himself from Donald Trump and to win the sympathy of the left dem, he clearly made it clear that he wanted to adopt a more open-minded approach on the migration dossier: a line, his, which fueled the hopes of millions of people, who then attempted to illegally cross the southern border.

It is also known that the management of illegal immigration has always been a thorn in the side of the current occupant of the White House. If the Republicans have repeatedly accused him of laxity, the left dem – on the contrary – has often accused him of lacking discontinuity compared to his predecessor. Biden he then tried to get by, only to find himself stopped in the middle of the ford. A situation that is weighing negatively on him also with regards to the presidential campaign. At the end of January, a survey by Bloomberg News found that for 61% of respondents the current president is in some way responsible for the wave of migration that has hit the southern border. Important: That survey was conducted in seven key states, such as Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, North Carolina, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. This is a rather disturbing wake-up call for Biden. Illegal immigration could in fact create many problems for him in view of the November elections.
