Joe Biden’s border security is the worst this nation has ever seen. But now it has come back to bite him in the butt.
And an illegal immigrant released by Biden has made an attack on the Capitol.
In a chilling breach of national security, an illegal alien, Jose Leonardo Marquez-Marquez, 23, from Venezuela, was apprehended outside the United States Capitol building late last month.
This individual, armed with a machete, knife, and brick, was previously released into the U.S. interior by President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) after crossing the southern border illegally.
Marquez’s December 26 arrest by Capitol Police sparked outrage and confusion.
Officers apprehended him acting suspiciously, his dangerous arsenal concealed beneath his clothing.
While authorities clarified there’s no direct evidence he targeted Congress, the mere thought of such a weaponized individual prowling near our lawmakers sends shivers down the spine.
Adding fuel to the fire, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) revealed Marquez’s disturbing migration history.
He initially crossed the border illegally near El Paso, Texas, in August 2022.
Apprehended by Border Patrol, he was astonishingly released the following day under Biden’s DHS Alternatives to Detention (ATD) program.
This program, touted as a “humane” alternative to detainment, has become a glaring loophole in border security.
Instead of being promptly repatriated, Marquez was essentially let loose into the American population, free to roam as he pleased.
Months later, in October 2023, Marquez inexplicably checked in with ICE in Washington, D.C.
Despite his illegal status, he was merely issued a Notice to Appear (NTA) before an immigration judge at an unspecified date in the future.
This bureaucratic delay, reminiscent of the administration’s lax border policies, left Marquez free to potentially wreak havoc.
Thankfully, Capitol Police intervened before any tragedy unfolded. Now, ICE detains Marquez, but the damage is already done.
This incident exposes the critical failures of Biden’s border policies:
The ATD program prioritizes political appeasement over public safety. Releasing illegal immigrants, especially those displaying suspicious behavior, is a gamble with terrifying consequences.
Unsecured borders invite crime and terrorism. This incident proves that dangerous individuals can infiltrate our national heartland with alarming ease.
Antiquated bureaucracy and lax enforcement create a revolving door for illegal immigrants, allowing them to disappear into the vast American landscape before facing proper legal consequences.
The American people deserve better.
Our elected officials must act swiftly and decisively to secure our borders, reform the ATD program, and overhaul the broken immigration system.
This incident should serve as a stark wake-up call: national security must never be placed on the altar of political correctness or bureaucratic lethargy.
Only through decisive action can we ensure the safety and security of our citizens and the sanctity of our nation.
This is not just about one illegal alien apprehended with dangerous weapons. It’s about the potential consequences of a flawed system that prioritizes ideology over national security.
The stakes are too high, and the American people deserve better. The time for action is now.
