The crisis at the southern border is likely to get worse because of the Biden administration’s mishandling, or abandonment, of enforcement tools to stop illegal immigration.


Last week, The Daily Signal was on the ground in South Texas interviewing border security experts.


One is Mike Salinas, a 34-year veteran of the Border Patrol who retired in 2021. Salinas talks about the escalating border crisis in Texas, how the situation is worse under Joe Biden than

Barack Obama, and how social media companies help cartels recruit smugglers of drugs and people.


Also joining today’s episode of “The Daily Signal Podcast” is Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which supports enforcement of immigration laws and opposes amnesty. Krikorian’s organization organized the border tour, in which The Daily Signal participated.


Krikorian, author of the books “The New Case against Immigration, Both Legal and Illegal” and “How Obama is Transforming America Through Immigration,” talks about how Biden and his homeland security secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, have failed to address the border crisis.


Also on today’s show, we cover these stories:

  • Can a Christian flag be flown outside Boston City hall? Yes, the Supreme Court rules unanimously.
  • Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has plans for President Biden’s new disinformation board.
  • Amazon announces that it will reimburse employees up to $4,000 in travel costs for medical treatments, including abortions.


Enjoy the show!
