Joe Biden, who recently went to the southern border for his first time ever while serving in public office, is facing criticism by border town residents who claim that the entire nation’s food supply could be at risk should the White House not get its act together.
Record high crossings by illegal aliens have been seen in the United States consistently since Biden first entered the White House. According to BizPac Review, nearly five million migrants have come into the United States since Biden’s inauguration. Border towns such as Yuma, Arizona are heavily strained, plagued by an estimated 500 excess crossings a day.
The town of El Paso, Texas, where Biden first visited the southern border, is so crowded with migrants it reportedly opened a desert tent earlier this month capable of housing 1,000 people. Controversy brewed in the town after authorities were seen tearing down migrant camps prior to Biden’s scheduled visit earlier this month.

Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines spoke on the matter with Fox News, saying, “Policies need to be changed when you see an unprecedented amount of people coming across the border that even supersedes what we saw under any of the other presidents for the past 30 years.”
“And now we’re looking at a 171 percent increase this year, this time, over last year. That’s ridiculous,” Lines said. “And they’re coming because they said that Biden told them to come, that we have an open border.”
Reports indicate that crossings into Yuma from July 2021 to July 2022 were up 400 percent and that the city has paid $20 million in medical services for approximately 250,000 illegals who came in via the invitation of Joe Biden. Some border towns, such as Eagle Pass, Texas, have reportedly been forced into closing their businesses earlier due to the extreme influxes of migrants.
“People have had a hard time getting into the hospital because the hospital has been so full of illegal immigrants,” fifth-generation farmer Hank Auza said to Fox News.
“Yuma can’t support that…It will overwhelm the system here,” Auza told the outlet as he explained that local city processing centers have been pushed well beyond capacity.
Lines cautioned that the food supply may be at threat due in part to the out-of-control migration.
“Our fields are monitored and audited and tested for different pathogens,” he said. “You can’t have people walking through the field.”
He additionally warned that the situation will continue to “get worse with Biden’s policies.”
