Florida Senator Rick Scott will get a firsthand look at what he calls a humanitarian crisis at the southern border today when he meets with Arizona’s governor. He Tweeted that he wants to see for himself the effects of President Biden’s radical immigration policies of open borders and amnesty. He also suggested Biden go to the border too.
We crack down on human trafficking every day by working with victims & prosecuting the criminals who trafficked them.
Pres. Biden won't let us use those same tools to crack down on cross-border human trafficking.
That endangers a generation of kids.https://t.co/ha0DqovBrN

Even White House press secretary Jen Psaki is calling the situation at the border a “crisis” that is growing more urgent each day.
Currently 14,000 migrant children are in custody at the border with 500 children arriving each day in the biggest surge in 20 years.
Responding to a call by Gov. Greg Abbott for access to immigrant children to ferret out human trafficking cases, Biden administration officials who spoke on condition of anonymity said Thursday that federal authorities are careful not to retraumatize the children by repeating their stories to every public official making a request.
About 1,000 immigration policy changes were made by the administration of former President Donald Trump, according to a recent report by Yale Law School. The Biden administration is now reversing some of them.
But rather than visiting the border, President Biden along with Vice President Kamala Harris are headed to Atlanta, Georgia today Friday.
They will meet with Asian and Pacific Islander officials to get their perspectives on the reported rise in hate incidents against Asian Americans.
Tuesday a sex addict shot up three Atlanta-area spas and several of the workers were from South Korea. Atlanta police have not said that the shootings were racially motivated.
So what are the numbers? There were 122 incidents of anti-Asian American hate crimes in 16 of the country’s most populous cities in 2020 according to data compiled by California State University’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism. And overall hate crimes declined in 2020.
