On Monday reports were coming out that 46+ illegal aliens had been found dead in the trailer of a semi-truck in San Antonio, Texas. They were apparently involved in a human smuggling operation.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre took a few questions concerning the fall-out from shocking news, and at one point callously stated that the “border is closed.”
This despite the massive amount of illegals still pouring across the US/Mexico border. They are being caught on videos, and on independent media reporting, nearly 24 hours a day.
“We’re focused on them, on the facts,” Jean-Pierre said, “and holding the human smugglers who endangered vulnerable individuals for-profits accountable,” Pierre answered.
“And we’re focusing on continuing our historic actions to disrupt dangerous smuggling networks, including through new, anti-smuggling campaigns just in the first two months that resulted in over 1,800 arrests. But the fact of the matter is the border is closed, she added”.

Julio Rosas, reporting from the border, fact-checked the White House claim as “false.”

Not even a fool can accept Jean-Pierre’s lies that the United States has a secure border.
Just look at April 2022, which was the worst number on record for illegal alien border crossings.
Congressman Glenn Grothman (WI-06) released the following statement after U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released the number of encounters at the Southwest border for the month of April.
“The number of migrants attempting to illegally cross our Southern border is reaching staggering levels,” said Grothman. “An estimated 234,088 illegal migrants were encountered at the Southwest border in April, the highest monthly total in the history of the Department of Homeland Security.
“Of the record number of migrants illegally crossing the border, an estimated 184,000 were released and remain in the interior of the United States. The 117,989 recorded ‘humanitarian releases’ represent an increase of 47 percent from March and we saw roughly an additional 8,600 unaccompanied children released to sponsors. This is on top of the estimated 58,000 got-aways who dodged Border Patrol altogether.
This surge makes sense when considering what President Joe Biden has done since taking office.
Joe immediately reversed many Trump-era border policies and announced his plans for a more “humanitarian approach” to illegal immigration.
This followed Biden’s campaign promises that he would reform U.S. immigration policy, citing the “moral failing and a national shame” of seeing illegal migrants drown while crossing the Rio Grande, something that has not even remotely stopped under his administration.
Biden also claimed that he would “Take urgent action to undo Trump’s damage and reclaim America’s values; Modernize America’s immigration system; Welcome immigrants in our communities; Reassert America’s commitment to asylum-seekers and refugees; Tackle the root causes of irregular migration;” and “Implement effective border screening.”
The massive flood of illegals continues, as the number of illegals who died in the trailer now stands at 53.

Unfortunately for the majority of Americans who want our borders secured, and for the White House and DHS to stop lying about them, they are powerless to do anything.
They should expect another 7 plus million illegals, “immigrants”, to cross our borders, before Biden leaves the White House on January 20th, 2025.
How we recover from Biden’s disastrous 4 years will be the main question that will have to be answered by either former President Trump or maybe DeSantis, during the 2024 GOP campaign.
