December 20th saw the release of the congressional spending bill for 2023, and despite seeing record numbers of immigrants they are now finding their hands being bound. With Customs and Border Protection (CBP) receiving $1,563,143,000 in funding, you would think that the goal would be to eradicate illegal immigration, stop the flow of drugs into our country, and protect our border. Not with Joe Biden as President.
Instead, the bill he is getting states that CBP’s funding is only to be used for “Operations and Support,” They cannot use it “to acquire, maintain, or extend border security technology and capabilities, except for technology and capabilities to improve Border Patrol processing.” This is absolutely crippling to the CBP, and our border security.
Considering the entire package is $1.7 trillion, their funding is just a drop in the bucket, but it also is some of the most crucial use of taxpayer dollars. By avoiding the idea of adding to the technology already in place, or replacing outdated systems, they are essentially just becoming underpaid security guards like the security guards at shopping malls.
For people like Former CBP Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan who spoke with the Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF), the wording in this bill makes absolutely no sense. He also sees it as proof that with the liberals at the head of the ship they are more than happy to sail American Democracy into the rocks. He sees it as them just throwing money at the problem, and resolving it by just processing the illegals and letting them right on in.

As they cut the legs out from the CBP, the border is seeing a significant rise in illegal immigration, drugs, and known terrorists slipping right on over. This surge is not only unprecedented but so is the reaction from the commander-in-chief as well as members of congress and the senate. Never in our country’s 246 years of history as a nation has this level of attack on our borders happened. Especially without any acknowledgment in the form of a response from the heads of the federal government.
When 9/11 happened, we were quick to respond. Immediately we had troops on the ground in Afghanistan looking for Osama bin Laden. Pearl Harbor saw us launched immediately into war with Japan, and shortly thereafter Germany and Italy. Yet for this attack on American soil, President Biden refuses to even admit something happened. His delusions about the problems at the border are Kim Jong Un’s levels of insanity.
Meanwhile, CBP agents are continuously encountering multiple high-value illegal immigrants, including people who are from counties on the terror watch list, and many with ties to known extremist organizations. Yet the Biden administration seems interested in none of this. Their stance of issuing an appearance ticket, and just letting them inside the US is rotting our country from the inside out.
Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) Head of Government Relations and Communications RJ Hauman also spoke with the DCNF about the border. “At this point, they might as well change the name of U.S. Customs and Border Protection to U.S. Customs and Border Processing. Seriously, all the Biden administration wants CBP to do is process migrants or watch them come across with a drone or camera. Every border security funding stream in a spending bill needs firm conditions to use the money properly, rather than enabling a system that functions as a lawless, greased up turnstile into the United States.”
This is disastrous, and it will end badly for America. When the terrorists strike again on American soil, don’t let the liberals do anything but accept the blame. They brought this on for us.
