Since president Joe Biden entered the oval office and became the 46th commander in chief of the United States in January of 2021, the quality of life in the nation has markedly declined. The state of the American middle class remains poor: rampant inflation has crushed working class families and the value of the dollar continues to decline. Some 60% of citizens are estimated to be living paycheck to paycheck, and a recent report has shed light on another alarming statistic. Home ownership has now been deemed impossible for median income earning Americans in 99% of the nation as interest rates have risen sharply and the price of homes remains astronomically high.
Most alarmingly, the American nation is openly admitting foreigners into the country on taxpayer’s expense. Millions of illegal migrants are estimated to have entered the nation since 2021, and tens of thousands continue to enter with each passing day. Recently, Iranian nationals were apprehended at the border with ties to terrorist organizations, only showing how much the open border threatens America’s national security. In Mexico, the government remains completely corrupt, and refuses to deal with the influx of illegal migrants originating within their nation. The cartels also hold significant power and control over the government, and public officials within that nation often refuse to prosecute individuals related to these activities. Recently, a ranch in northern Mexico was used as a place of torture by the cartel. Individuals had been incinerated during and after their suffering. The conditions at the ranch were reminiscent of the Holocaust.
Many border families have spoken out against the secretary of the department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas and his incompetence. Two mothers, one whose daughter passed away at the hands of an illegal migrant and another who perished from fentanyl overdose were vocal in their criticisms of Mayorkas. Ultimately, the problem at the border appears likely to continue to worsen as time progresses.
