According to the United Nations’ International Organization for Migration, the United States’ southern border with Mexico is the most dangerous land crossing in the world.
“More than 1,238 lives have been lost during migration in the [north, central and south] Americas in 2021, among them at least 51 children,” the organization’s July 1 report stated.
“At least 728 of these deaths occurred on the United States-Mexico border crossing, making this the deadliest land crossing in the world,” declared the IOM statement. The IOM statement continued:
The number of deaths on the United States-Mexico border last year is significantly higher than in any year prior, even before COVID-19.” “Yet, this number remains an undercount.
Neil Munro of Breitbart News provided some context to the mass migration numbers:
The record number of deaths reflects the mass migration up to the border — where Biden’s border chief, Alejandro Mayorkas, is dangling work permits and jobs to more than a million foreigners.
Per the report’s data, in 2020, Munro observed that “one-third fewer people died throughout North, Central, and South America when President Donald Trump rejected illegal migration.”
Despite its flaws, the Trump administration was at least committed to halting immigration.
The fact remains that as long as there is lax enforcement at the US border, there will be more migrant deaths and cases of criminal aliens penetrating the border and wreaking havoc in the US interior.
A right-wing populist regime would prevent these incidents by focusing most of the federal government’s and willing state government’s resources at the border. For geopolitical conflicts abroad, the border is the most pressing area of national security concerns for the US.
