Because of Joe Biden’s horrific border policies, these drug cartels and human traffickers are now making millions per day according to border patrol sources:
FOX NEWS – Criminal organizations trafficking women, children, families and single adults over the U.S.-Mexico border earned as much as $14 million a day in February, according to border patrol sources.
“Trafficking is a multibillion-dollar industry,” said former Tucson Border Patrol Chief Roy Villareal, who retired in December after 30 years with the agency. “A lot of these vulnerable populations use their life savings. Some are essentially indentured servants and they’re working off this debt for a long period of time. In other cases, some of these migrants are asked to transport narcotics or some form of crime to work off a different part of their debt.”
The human smuggling windfall comes as U.S. taxpayer costs for the border crisis continue to spike, topping $5 million a day, based on 2019 figures provided by Health and Human Services that put daily “influx” shelter costs at $800 per migrant. Additionally, last week the Biden administration awarded a $86 million contract for hotel rooms to hold 1,200 migrant families as the crisis exceeds ICE holding capacity.
As for criminal organizations, profits made at the border are used to pay off and corrupt police and government officials in Central America, further fueling the border crisis. However, Biden claims his strategy to send US tax money south will strengthen those governments.
A portion of the smuggling fees are typically paid up front but are mostly paid over time by the worker, their family or an employer. The money pays for transportation, food, shelter and a guide to get over the border. In some cases, the fees also cover transportation to a place of employment where the worker is expected to remain for years.
Below is a break down from February:
Here are the revenues CBP officials estimate for February. The numbers for single adults and Mexicans were adjusted to account for recidivism.

Single Adult — $8,000 – $9,000
Mexican — $5000 – $6,000
February Smuggling Revenues
Central American Children — $34.1m
Central American Families — $80.7m
Central American Single Adults — $139.5m
Mexicans — $157.2m
February Total — $411.5m
Daily Average — $14.6m
Joe Biden has been the biggest boon for these violent drug cartels in years. Not only are they making a ton from trafficking even more drugs across the border because of the crisis they are creating, but they are making millions per day off of the backs of poor families just to traffic children and families. And as the Border Patrol suggests, many of these families are being coerced into participating this. This is what Joe Biden has done.
“But don’t worry, Joe Biden is empathetic, so this is all fine,” to quote Ben Shapiro. What’s Biden got to do to get an actual scandal here?
