Axios reporter Jonathan Swan mentioned on this week’s “FOX News Sunday” panel that drug traffickers and cartels are using the Biden administration’s open-door immigration insurance policies to steer extra immigrants to cross the border into the United States.

Swan accused Biden’s poor immigration technique for the “unprecedented” inflow of Haitian migrants who’ve made their means throughout the U.S. Southern Border and into Del Rio, Texas final week.

“When you overlay a global pandemic with, in Haiti, the earthquake and the assassination of the leader, the economic crisis in the region – and it’s only getting worse….some of it is inducement from the Biden administration’s policies and traffickers using that to message people in the region ‘come on up, come on up,’” Swan mentioned.


Nearly 16,000 migrants, largely Haitians, had been camped out underneath a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, final month. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas mentioned on the time that as much as 30,000 folks had been encountered in Del Rio since Sept. 9 and that as many as 15,000 had been concentrated there at one time. 

Approximately 12,400 people had been reportedly launched into the U.S. and are anticipated to have their circumstances heard by an immigration decide to resolve whether or not they are going to be allowed to stay within the U.S.

Another 8,000 have chosen to return to Mexico, whereas an estimated 5,000 migrants are being processed by DHS, which can decide whether or not they are going to be deported or positioned in an immigration processing heart, Mayorkas mentioned. 

Swan mentioned that as a result of the size of the disaster has develop into “so massive,” the answer should be a “regional” one. 

“There’s obviously going to be enforcement from the U.S. side,” he informed host Chris Wallace, “but they’re going to have to get cooperation from others in the region because the scale of the problem has become so massive.”
