The Truth Behind The Surge At The Southern Border – The Federalist

Posted: June 18, 2021 at 7:41 am

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Political Editor John Daniel Davidson joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss his most recent trip to the Southern U.S. border and why people from far-flung places like Haiti, Venezuela, Africa, and even Uzbekistan are choosing to cross in remote and historically less-busy areas.

A lot of the people that are crossing arent necessarily impoverished farmers like you see at the Rio Grande Valley from Honduras and El Salvador and Guatemala, Davidson said. They are people of means in their home country and theyve been waiting and saving and picking their moment so they are not showing up with nothing. They are showing up with means and they have a plan and theyve been thinking about this for a long time.

Davidson said people will continue to pour across the border because the Biden administration is encouraging them to come.

If you signal that the border is open and then it really is, it doesnt matter what you say in terms of what you would like people in Central America to do Unless you actually turn them back at the border, they are going to come because they know that they have a chance now, Davidson said.
