Border Patrol released a disturbing report last month regarding the number of sex offenders attempting to gain entry into the United States. According to the report, the rate has risen by 3,166 percent from last year.

From May 17 to May 24, Border Patrol arrested ten individuals who were convicted of sex crimes soon after they entered the country. Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Austin L. Skero II said: “The majority of these criminals were apprehended in our sector’s most remote areas, attempting to avoid detection by crossing far from populated areas.”

He added: “Our agents’ sign cutting and tracking skills were instrumental in capturing these criminals, preventing them from infiltrating our communities.”

The report noted:

Between May 17 and 23, Border Patrol agents arrested Mexican nationals with felony convictions including forcible sexual abuse, sexual assault of a child under 14, sexual assault of a child, sexual assault, sexual conduct with a person under 13 and a registered sexual offender. Agents also arrested two Honduran nationals with felony convictions for statutory rape, and second-degree sexual assault of a child.

It continued: “Since the start of Fiscal Year 2021, Oct. 1, Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents have arrested 95 convicted sex offenders, a 3,166 percent increase over the same timeframe last fiscal year.”

This report highlights one of the issues with President Joe Biden’s open borders approach to immigration. All throughout the 2020 campaign season, he and other Democrats promised to enact policies favorable to those who wish to cross the border. In essence, he gave a green light to migrants seeking to come into the U.S. legally and illegally, and now, we are beginning to see the consequences of that position.

But, the issue isn’t just the convicted sex offenders; it is also those trying to exploit the migrants they are tasked with smuggling over the border. Biden’s decision to rescind most of former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies is making it easier for human traffickers to lure migrants into being sold into sex slavery and forced labor.
