Fox News Primetime host Mark Steyn lamented in his monologue the massive increase in human smuggling into the United States as the Biden administration fails to secure the southern border. 

The Fox News host stated that under Biden administration, the Department of Homeland Security is “laughably misnamed,” stating that the crisis and undoing of previously stringent policies had opened a horrifying “express-lane” for human traffickers. 

Steyn said, “I’m an immigrant to this great Republic,” specifying that he was a legal immigrant from Canada.

“Don’t worry; I’m not an undocumented immigrant. I’m the other kind — and boy, I wouldn’t make that mistake again: Years in the system, the arbitrary whelm of the bureaucracy, the paperwork…” the Fox News host added.


“It’s time for your toddler to start crawling — through the desert,” Steyn said, referring to the video of toddlers that were dropped by smugglers right at the border.

Steyn also added that people on the left, for some reason, see a relaxed immigration system like the one being instituted as “compassionate.”

He said, “[They] think the government being industrial-scale enablers of some of the most evil people on the planet is progressive and compassionate. It’s not.”

Steyn continued, “There is nothing kind about incentivizing human trafficking, which, by the way, is merely a synonym for slavery and the same people who want to tear down the statue if the guy’s family had a plantation 300 years ago are all cool with the global trade in human beings of the 21st century.”

Then the Fox News host made a statement saying that Biden is consciously enriching these cartels and assures them that they can expand their operations.

“So, Joe Biden or whoever has got his hand waggling that moth-eaten sock-puppet is consciously enriching these cartels and ensuring that they can expand their operations including more fentanyl to kill Americans and some would-be jihadists now and then,” Steyn said.

The Fox News host also added that the country is witnessing what is becoming a “lopsided business partnership between America and coyotes at a time of global pandemic — when almost every national border on the planet, including the northern U.S. Border, is closed down.”

Meanwhile, according to the latest news, Cartels are using social media platforms to recruit American teenagers to transport migrants, the latest sign of the escalating chaos at the U.S. – Mexico border as cartels target teends on Tiktok and other social media platforms to smuggle illegal immigrants.

Cartels post ads on social media apps like Tiktok, where they offer teens and young adults more than $3,000 a ride to come to drive smuggled migrants into the United States when they reach the border. 

The ads that were captured and reported by Fox News shows, “Need 2 or 3 drivers to go through a checkpoint,” one says.

Another says, “Got another 6 left, already crossed. Lemme know ASAP for that easy cash.”

If the teens take the job and helped get the migrants through the checkpoints and then go and drop them off at locations such as a store parking lot where the migrants will be met and get picked up by someone trusted by the cartel. After the migrants are picked up by cartels, they will be transferred to stash houses that are scattered along the border.
