Boston Logan Airport Looks Like Refugee Camp Thanks to Biden

Under Biden's watch, our public spaces are being overtaken by homeless immigrants and terrorists are pouring over the border.

Under President Joe Biden’s administration, the scenes unfolding at Boston’s Logan Airport are a stark illustration of our country’s failed immigration policies. Logan Airport has become a de facto refugee camp, with hundreds of illegal immigrants, including entire families, using baggage claims as sleeping areas, surrounded by their few belongings and makeshift bedding.

This situation is not an anomaly but a direct consequence of the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and porous borders. The stark reality is that America’s borders are essentially non-existent under current policy. Anyone can cross, and thousands are being redistributed across the nation via buses and planes, often under the cover of darkness. The administration’s approach to immigration has discarded any semblance of effective vetting. This past weekend alone, eight suspected terrorists from Tajikistan were arrested across New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. They were suspected of having ties to ISIS and entered through our southern border—a border that might as well be a revolving door given the ease with which individuals can enter the United States.

The ongoing crisis reveals that our national security is being jeopardized. Reports indicate that numerous potential threats have penetrated our defenses and, shockingly, some are caught and released back into the country. It’s an open invitation to disaster, a clear signal that the U.S. is an easy target. Despite President Biden’s executive order purportedly aimed at curbing this influx, the reality on the ground shows no sign of improvement. In some sectors, it appears that this new directive is being blatantly ignored. The administration’s failure to enforce its policies, or perhaps the policies themselves, is inadequate to stem the tide of illegal crossings.

The current state of affairs at Logan Airport and similar situations nationwide should serve as a wake-up call. We are witnessing the erosion of our sovereign ability to control our borders, compounded by an administration that seems more concerned with political optics than with the substantive protection of its citizens.

As a nation, we must demand more than band-aid solutions and executive half-measures. We need robust enforcement of immigration laws and real strategies to secure our borders. Anything less is a dereliction of duty by our elected officials, who owe the American people security, sovereignty, and the rule of law. How long must we wait before decisive action is taken? The ongoing crisis under Biden’s watch is a clear signal that change is needed, and it is needed now.
