Illegal immigration is overwhelming the southern border town of El Paso, Texas. In only a week, over 5 thousand illegal immigrants have crossed the border into the town. While El Paso is getting the worst of the problem, all southern border towns are feeling the pain. In 2022 alone, there have been more than 2.3 million illegals who’ve attempted to cross the southern border. Despite this crush of illegal immigration, the Biden administration has done nothing to address the border crisis. While we should care about the humanity of those who want to immigrate here, we must also insist that immigration is orderly and according to the law. Failure to do so jeopardizes national security and hinders the ability of immigrants to integrate into American society.
