TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody released a federal document she said proves that the Biden Administration knows its policies are encouraging mass migration and are emboldening drug cartels.
Moody said the federal document debunks Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ claim that the administration is not contributing to the influx of unvetted migrants.
The document, according to Moody, reveals that the Biden Administration knows drug cartels are charging migrants in order to “feed cartel violence in Mexico and along the border.”
“We are in the midst of a national opioid crisis and the deadliest drugs are being smuggled into our country from Mexico. President Biden knows this, yet he continues to double down on his terrible immigration policies knowing full well these policies are emboldening and enriching the very drug cartels who are profiting off the deaths of thousands of Americans,” Moody said.
The document is titled “U.S. Customs and Border Protection Overview of the Southwest Border.” The document states that “smuggling networks are very active in promoting the flow of migrants through Mexico as drug trafficking organizations maintain control of the primary trafficking corridors into the United States.”
“The drug trafficking organizations’ control of these corridors allows them to regulate the flow of migrants as well as charge migrants a ‘tax’…for the right to pass through the corridors,” the document said.
It said drug cartels will “exploit migration flows” to fund their “illicit” businesses and claims the Biden Administration knew that “irregular” migration flows by organized crime networks will likely increase in fiscal year 2021 as “migrant perceptions of U.S. immigration policies shift.”
Moody said several Biden policies have hindered federal agents’ “ability to expeditiously process and remove migrants encountered.”
Florida and 13 other states took legal action against the Biden Administration’s Asylum rule, which removes many federal immigration judges from the asylum review process.
Florida joined 20 other states to keep the Title 42 Order in place. The attorneys general argued in court that lifting the order would lead to mass immigration and overwhelm authorities. A federal court granted a temporary restraining order to block the Biden Administration from ending Title 42.
