“We maintain the peace through our strength, weakness only invites aggression. This strategy of deterrence has not changed. It still works. But what it takes to maintain deterrence has changed. “ - President Ronald Reagan ."
On day one, the Biden Administration dismantled the Trump Administration’s policies to secure and protect the integrity of our southern border.
As a result, we have seen the number of encounters at the border rise to unprecedented heights, making this a humanitarian, public health and national security crisis.
As Texas Senator Ted Cruz stated, there are three decisions that instigated this crisis:
- The cancellation of the construction of the Border Wall
- The reinstatement of the failed Catch-and-Released policy
- The termination of the international Remain in Mexico agreement
The Department of Homeland Security is anticipating the release of up to 400,000 illegal immigrants across the U.S.-Mexico Border in this month alone. The Catch-and-Release numbers rose by a shocking 430,000% in August 2021 compared to August 2020.
Though much time has passed, Reagan’s statement holds true: “we maintain the peace through our strength, weakness only invites aggression.”
We hope that you tune in to hear more about the crisis on our southern border, as well as the thoughts of our grassroots army.
