The Biden regime’s immigration policies are so ineffective at stopping the flood of illegal aliens that even the new arrivals are shocked over how easy it is to cross over into the United States.
Thousands of northbound migrants are pouring across the border in southern Arizona on a daily basis, walking unmolested through massive floodgates near the Tucson border post that have been left wide open during the monsoon season and to facilitate migration for an endangered antelope species.
Stunning video footage obtained by the New York Post shows the illegals just casually walking through the gates at a location that has become “the busiest point of illegal entry into the country,” according to the outlet.

“We thought the agents were going to tell us something,” said one migrant from Ecuador. “But we just walked in.”
“It was so easy to get into the US,” remarked an illegal alien from Cuba.
“Nothing like our journey through Mexico. That part was hard,” she said. “I thought there was going to be more security.”
“US officials have inexplicably welded open 114 massive gates along the Arizona border to allow water to flow freely during the annual monsoon season and for the migration of an endangered species of antelope, officials said,” the New York Post reported. “Each of the 114 gates in Arizona, which have been open for nearly two months, has 12-foot doors wide enough for a motorcycle to drive through. Smugglers drive busloads of migrants to the Mexican side of the border, where they get off and simply walk into the US.”

“The call to open the floodgates came from multiple federal government agencies, including the National Park Service,” according to Border Patrol sources cited by the outlet. The gates have remained open for weeks due to the monsoon season starting late this year, “allowing migrants a dry path into the US.”
“We tried to shut the gates but the order came down that we had to leave them open,” said one unnamed source. “You wouldn’t leave the front door of your house open in a bad neighborhood.”
“The individuals had already crossed the border from Mexico, are on U.S. soil, and are subject to U.S. immigration laws. Individuals who cross unlawfully will be subject to the lawful pathways rule, which places common-sense conditions on asylum eligibility, with certain exceptions. Those who do not establish a legal basis to remain in the United States will be removed,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement to the New York Post.
The floodgate video comes amid reports that the administration has been quietly selling off pieces of former President Donald J. Trump’s uncompleted border wall, a move that has angered Republican lawmakers.
The New York Post recently reported that the Biden regime has been auctioning off unused portions of the wall for “peanuts” through GovPlanet.com, an online auction house that specializes in government and military surplus.

According to the outlet, the website has sold 81 lots of “square structural tubes” intended to be used for vertical bollards in the wall’s 30-foot tall panels for about $2 million, and on one day last week, “netted $154,200 for 729 of the 28-foot-tall hollow beams, sold in five separate lots for an average $212 apiece.”
“Leaving the border open to terrorists while selling border security materials at a loss is Bidenomics in a nutshell,” said Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.)
