As massive migrant caravans continue to cross the U.S.-Mexico border, one national security expert signaled the border crisis will only get worse for Americans – and their pocketbooks – once the Biden administration drops Title 42.
“The numbers coming across are already being felt across the nation in your schools, health care system, crime, every sector of the American economy and our social fabric,” “Overrun” author Todd Bensman said on “Mornings with Maria” Monday. “Whether the president wants to admit it or not, Americans are going to feel this in the pocketbook for a long, long time, probably permanently.”
Officials at the southern border are reportedly seeing massive migrant numbers at the southern border, along with a number of large groups, ahead of the expected end of the ability to expel migrants under the Title 42 public health order in a few weeks.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources told Fox News that migrant numbers for FY 2023, which began in October, are at over 485,000 and are expected to hit the half a million mark this weekend. So far, 156,000 have been expelled under Title 42.
“The intelligence community is saying that when they drop Title 42 on December 21st, assuming that happens, that we’ll be looking at anywhere from 12,000 to 18,000 [crossings] a day,” Bensman told host Maria Bartiromo. “That’s just an absolute Category 5 hurricane we’ve never experienced before in the United States.”
