Rep. Andy Biggs Unpacks the Biden Border Calamity
"I'm joining us now is the terrific Andy Biggs. He has some news to share about things happening on the southern border. It is to tragedy. Andy, welcome back to the program fill us in. What's going on? You know, I got to tell you, Charlie, it is, it's almost inconceivable to think that it can keep getting worse, but it gets worth worse by the month. And this administration is doing things to distract. So for instance, they're going to tell you that, well, the encounters between the ports of entry went down significantly last month. And they did. But the reason why is because they're funneling people through a parole program, which is contrary to U.S. law and getting him into going through ports of entry, trying to get him there. And then they're going to release them into the interior immediately with work permits and they're gone. The de facto Amnesty program that's happening right now, Charlie. And guess what? The cartels aren't going to put up with that. So that's why we fully expected them to drop by about a 150,000. They dropped between ports of entry by about a 100,000, the cartels are not going to put up with that. So they're going to because they control the border. I mean, I don't know what else to tell you. We've got testimony in recent weeks. The sector chiefs. These are in the Biden administration sector chiefs. They themselves admit the southwest border, which is from McAllen, Texas, to San Diego, is controlled, not by U.S., not by our own sovereign forces, but by the cartels. Charlie, this, you know, we could talk AD nauseum, you know, almost infinitely about how bad this situation is. Terrible.

We increase that revenue by twenty five percent. Over the next year we can replace the revenue from the bottom eighty percent of plants that are responsible for twenty percent revenue that puts the business owner at choice Whether or not you're going to serve does difficult clients and customers..
