Migrants arrive at border with ‘Biden, Please let us in’ t-shirts

Who printed and paid for the t-shirts? That’s what many are asking after hundreds of migrants showed up at the southern U.S. border wearing shirts that read, “Biden, Please let us in.”

Migrants seeking entry rose by 50 percent in February alone with the number of unaccompanied children increasing 10-fold. The Biden administration is refusing to allow reporters into the holding camps.

According to The Associated Press, the department’s phase one was only expected to start slowly, processing roughly 300 people per day. That number has skyrocketed this week with thousands seeking entry and even a Biden administration official calling it a crisis.

Earlier this week, Biden told reporters he learned “a lot” after receiving a briefing about the border. But he refused to characterize the overwhelming number of migrants at the border as a “crisis” despite one administration official having called it that. A reporter asked Biden on Tuesday if there was a crisis at the border, to which he responded, “No, we’ll be able to handle it.”

Under the Biden administration, the U.S. is nearing maximum capacity in shelters for illegal immigrant children.

Internal documents from the Department of Health and Human Services reveal the shelter system is now at 94% occupancy, according to Axios. And it is expected to hit maximum capacity later this month.

Who paid for the t-shirts, instead of providing traveling migrants with food remains a mystery.
