On his first day in office in January 2021, President Joe Biden ended many of his predecessor’s policies to manage illegal immigration at America’s southern border. Biden brought a halt to former President Donald Trump’s construction of the border wall, and tens of thousands of migrants began crossing the border illegally.
Since October, more than 940,000 migrants have been caught at the border, the Border Patrol reports.
Gloria Taylor, communications manager for national security and foreign policy issues at The Heritage Foundation, traveled last week to McAllen, Texas, to see for herself what is happening there.
Taylor joins this episode of the “Problematic Women” podcast to discuss what she learned from Border Patrol agents and from ranchers who live on the border and face the challenges of surging illegal immigration every day.
Also on today’s show, we discuss why some district attorneys no longer prosecute entire categories of crime. Plus, we take time to remember the significance of Easter. And as always, we’ll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.
