New border county report unveils terrifying crime movements

Joe Biden seems set on destroying this great nation. And he has started with our borders.

And a new border county report has unveiled terrifying crime movements.

Since President Joe Biden’s inauguration, Kinney County, Texas, a region close to the U.S.-Mexico border, has witnessed an astronomical rise in criminal charges, jumping by an alarming 5,000 percent.

This drastic increase, from merely 134 charges in 2020 to a staggering 6,800 in 2022, starkly highlights the escalating border crisis and its profound impact on local communities.

Kinney County, like many other border areas, has been disproportionately affected by policies stemming from the Biden administration, which have led to significant shifts in border security and immigration enforcement.

During a hearing conducted by the House Budget Committee focused on the border crisis, Kinney County Attorney Brent Smith offered a distressing overview of the situation that his jurisdiction faces daily.

Smith explained that the dramatic spike in criminal charges began in 2021, shortly after President Biden implemented several executive orders that drastically altered the operational landscape for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

These orders effectively dismantled a series of robust border security measures previously in place, clearing the path for drug cartels and human traffickers to exploit the border to their advantage.

“Immediately following the revocation of these critical border security policies, criminal enterprises, particularly cartels, capitalized on the newfound vulnerabilities at our border,” Smith stated.

“They effectively imposed their own lawless ‘policies’ designed to optimize their criminal activities, profoundly affecting our community’s safety and security.”

In 2021 alone, criminal charges in Kinney County soared to 2,708 and further surged to 6,800 by 2022. Although there was a slight reduction to 5,826 charges in 2023, the numbers remain alarmingly high, straining local law enforcement and community resources beyond their limits.

Smith also highlighted the financial burdens these challenges have imposed on local taxpayers.

Kinney County, which typically operates on a modest annual budget of $6 million, has incurred an additional $10.5 million in expenses due to the federal government’s failure to secure the border effectively.

This financial strain is compounded by a significant toll on public safety and community well-being.

“The human cost of this crisis is immeasurable,” Smith continued.

“We have lost residents—tax-paying citizens—who died because emergency services were stretched too thin, attending to continuous human smuggling events rather than being available for local emergencies. These losses are directly attributable to the federal government’s dereliction of duty.”

The situation in Kinney County is a microcosm of the broader national security and humanitarian crisis unfolding at the southern border.

The surge in criminal activity facilitated by lax border policies not only endangers the residents of border counties but also threatens the overall security of the United States.

Smith’s testimony paints a grim picture of a community overwhelmed by the consequences of failed federal policies.

He emphasized that the ongoing violence and lawlessness fostered by these policies are unsustainable for any sovereign nation, particularly for a small Texas county with just over 3,200 residents.

“As long as this administration continues to neglect its fundamental duty to enforce our nation’s laws, every American, not just Texans, is at risk,” Smith concluded.

“The safety and security of our citizens should be the foremost priority of our federal government, and it is high time that this administration addresses this crisis with the urgency it demands.”

The border crisis exemplifies a critical failure of the current administration to uphold its responsibilities, casting long shadows over the safety, security, and financial stability of border communities and, by extension, the entire nation.

As the situation continues to deteriorate, the call for immediate and effective federal action has never been more urgent.
