(ConservativePeak.com)- President Joe Biden remains so oblivious to the seriousness of the massive surge of illegal immigrants pouring over the southern border of the United States that he still hasn’t appointed someone to head up the United States Customs and Border Protection.
The shocking revelation hit the news this week around the same time that Biden announced he would be sending Vice President Kamala Harris to meet leaders of South American nations to see if there’s anything to be done about the huge number of migrants leaving their nations and heading to the border.
It appears that neither President Biden nor Vice President Harris realize that promising amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens might attract more people to cross the border while the time is right.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is the federal law enforcement agency responsible for inspecting goods and people who cross the border into the United States by air, land, or sea. It’s also the agency that arrests people who illegally cross the border – an issue that became a decreasing burden on the agency under the Presidency of Donald Trump.
Through a combination of policies that discouraged living illegally in the United States and hundreds of mile of wall built on the border, illegal crossings were dropping under the Trump administration but are now nearing record highs under the Biden administration.
As it stands, Troy Miller currently serves as the acting commissioner of the CBP, announcing a few days after Biden was inaugurated that he was “honored” to assume the role of “Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Commissioner.”
I’m honored to assume the role of Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Commissioner of @CBP. I am continually inspired by the men and women of CBP, who work tirelessly every day to keep this country and its people safe. pic.twitter.com/eCAZbl8ym2

But Biden has yet to find somebody to permanently fill the role and refuses to tell journalists who ask why he has yet to find someone to fill the role.
In the meantime, Vice President Harris is all set to meet with leaders of South American nations to see if there’s anything they can do to stop illegal aliens storming the border.
We’ll see how that works out…
