Numerous aliens who went to El Paso, Texas by illegally crossing the border reportedly said to the Daily Caller that they came because of Joe Biden and his policies.
Biden visited the town Sunday in what was his first time ever visiting the U.S.-Mexico border while in public office.
Controversy over Biden’s El Paso trip erupted after viral photos and videos showed what the town allegedly looked like before and after news broke of his planned visit.

The Daily Caller interviewed various illegal aliens in El Paso to see why they came to the United States.
“We sold everything to come here because President Biden told us to come and now we can’t return because we are targets for leaving,” stated one illegal alien from Venezuela.
Another Venezuelan illegal alien who was asked if Biden inspired his trip answered, “At first yes.”
“Every president has policies, like the subject of immigration and war. President Biden had good policies because he allowed in people from Central and South America,” he explained. “Unfortunately, the policies changed. But in general, I think he gives us all a chance because we deserve it. Many people have given their word just like me as we left our countries of origin to arrive here to the United States.”
This news comes as the United States faces unprecedented levels of illegal immigration. The New York Post reports that nearly 2.4 million arrests were made for illegal border crossings in the fiscal year 2022, which ended Sept. 30.
Meanwhile, an October 2022 report from the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found that an estimated 5.5 million illegal immigrants have been encountered at the U.S. borders just since Joe Biden first assumed the White House.
The illegal aliens who interviewed with the Daily Caller indicated that they were eagerly awaiting Biden’s trip to El Paso in case he would make things easier for them.
“We do not want to stay in El Paso, but it is very difficult to leave. They are suggesting for us to wait until tomorrow to see what news President Biden gives us. In the name of Jesus, we wish that he speaks from the heart and gives us the chance to arrive to this country and work,” said an illegal alien woman from Venezuela.
