Up to 120,000 Migrants Headed to U.S. Border

Senator Rubio states the immigration situation is about to get worse.

Senator Marco Rubio of Florida stated, “There are between 80,000 and 120,000 migrants transiting various countries headed towards the U.S. and under Biden a de facto open border, the worse [sic] is yet to come.” The senator has recently spoken with the foreign ministers from a number of Latin American countries.

“For example, in Colombia there are anywhere from 20,000 to 25,000 Haitian migrants in Colombia right now,” he said. “All of them are headed here at some point—not all at once but they’re headed here eventually.”

He stated there are 60,000 in Panama and tens of thousands more in Chile and Ecuador and other countries, from Haiti and other parts of the world, planning to come to the United States because they think they can get in. The senator says the foreign ministers from these countries have requested high-level engagement from President Biden’s administration for weeks to discuss how to prevent this, but they have not succeeded.

Senator Rubio says his heart breaks for people in Haiti where the situation has been terrible for a long time. “I understand that  desperation but I also understand, as an American, that no country in the world can have an open border where just anyone can show up.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. officials evaluating the immigration crisis that exists at the southern border.
  • For border patrol agents dealing with the influx of migrants each day.
  • For the states and communities unequipped to handle the thousands of undocumented migrants.
