EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT OF THE CRISIS AT THE BORDER

Father God, thank You for everyone who is working hard to help people at the border. We pray for immigration policies that will help, not hurt.

Multiple states are facing an unprecedented number of migrants from Mexico and Central America crossing the southern border. Texas, Arizona and New Mexico have seen a surge in illegal border crossing.

“Temporary holding facilities are now packed with young children, mothers, and teenagers while others are being forced to sleep outside. Unable to handle the massive and growing surge, federal officials have released more than 20,000 migrants into the United States. Many of these individuals have not been assigned a court date and will likely never be seen again,” according to Sen. Roger Wicker. He also said Border Patrol officers are now arresting upward of 6,000 migrants per day.

Border Patrol agents in Arizona are seeing the greatest increase of migrant families at the state’s border with Mexico. Illegal border crossings have also seen a surge in New Mexico where the halting of the unfinished border wall has left nearly a mile-long gap allowing migrants to easily cross from Mexico into the United States.

A new AP-NORC poll found that more Americans disapprove than approve of the Biden Administration’s handling of the border crisis. Go here to see the new poll.

Please pray for the safety of migrants coming to the border, especially unaccompanied children, and wisdom for the leaders of the southern states being affected. 

On Thursday U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) joined IFA’s webcast to share a firsthand account of his recent tour of the Rio Grande with 18 of his Republican Senate colleagues. “The peak of the first (illegal border crossing) wave occurred in 2014. President Obama correctly called it a humanitarian crisis and his Homeland Security secretary said it was a “bad day” when apprehensions exceeded 1,000. This (most recent) third wave is routinely experiencing daily apprehensions over 4,000, with one day already exceeding 6,000,” stated Johnson.

The system is already completely overwhelmed, and the current crisis has only just begun. Johnson shared, “There is nothing humane about enacting policies that entice migrants to make a perilous journey, subjecting themselves to the depredations of human traffickers, sexual abuse, involuntary servitude and even death.” To hear more about Senator Johnson’s IFA’ interview about what he witnessed at the border please click here.

Please pray for Senator Ron Johnson and his efforts to bring to light the humanitarian crisis at the southern border.

Official March border apprehension numbers were just released, and they confirmed the border crisis is of record proportions. The CBP numbers show 172,331 taken into custody, the highest numbers in almost two decades. That includes 18,890 unaccompanied migrant children.

  1. Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank You for Your plan of salvation. Thank You that I can come into Your throne room, into the Holy of Holies, because I am covered by Jesus’ robe of righteousness. I love you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    The border problem is heartbreaking. I pray for border patrol, for all in leadership in border states,
    for the poor, lost, and desperate people fleeing their own countries to cross the border. Shed Your mercy and grace on all aspects of this unbelievably complex problem.

    In Jesus’ Name, I rebuke the power and intents of dark powers who are using the border problem and immigration to satisfy, or promote migration for any sinful purposes. Stop the criminals, drug dealers, and sex traffickers. Bring them to their knees in repentance.

    I pray for righteous and just leadership in all countries south of the border. Dissolve the need, and desire of people to leave their homeland.

    Lord, “Exalt Your glory” over the border crisis. Strengthen and renew daily Your children providing for the needs of all people directly involved at the border. “O, Lord, come quickly to save us.” Amen

    Amen! 1
  2. How are churches mobilizing to meet this need? We should remember to pray for God to give His people creative and effective ideas. Believers in non-border states could consider financially supporting those churches on the front lines that are responding and ministering to this mission filed that has come to us.

    Amen! 4
  3. Isa. 59:19 “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him”. Father this crisis is no match for you. For with God nothing shall be impossible. Lord, put Watchmen on the ‘wall’ . . . all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. Increase and dispatch the manpower/reinforcements; give them discernment and wisdom. I’d like to share an interview DeloraO’brien, the Gathering did with Tim Enlow (military, law enforcement, security); helped rescue kids at Texas border. This raises ?s Is our own U.S. Government sponsoring child smuggling?!? https://youtu.be/MQxvBHdfTsI

    Amen! 3

    Amen! 2
  5. We have to begin to ask the question “can these border states create laws that supersede or negate” federal policy that would allow states to deport illegals in defense of the safety of the citizens of their states?
    As citizens, if we have ideas that may possibly help our state officials (who are overwhelmed in the border states), we should be in contact with them. Call them. Don’t be shy. Sometimes God will instill an idea or prompting within an individual that is meant to be shared in order to help with problems or help other people (help our lawmakers).

    Amen! 3
  6. We did have immigration policies that worked when President Trump was in office. It’s not the policies, it’s the controlling politicians that have changed the policies and the rules! People leading this country now are being controlled themselves by pure evil! They have one goal: CONTROL over everything! I pray that God will open the eyes of His people before it’s too late!! Only God, and the people of God, can turn things around. I pray that we all do our part. Our children, and grandchildren’s lives literally depend on us!

    Amen! 9
  7. Texas, Arizona and other States must deport all these illegal immigrants including Children, as the Governors, Mayors and local leaders must have the courage and strength to so what is right for America.

    Amen! 5
  8. Dear Heavenly Father, we ask that you intervene in a mighty way on behalf of the children and that the lies,evil and wickedness that is occurring at the border be stopped in the name of Jesus. We are crying out that Your mighty arm will establish righteousness and justice at the border and that Your mercy and truth will touch the hearts of those in leadership so they will do the right thing. May your truth prevail and protect those that are serving and those that are being served. To you be the glory God we trust and believe and know You have everything at hand. Amen and amen

    Amen! 17
  9. What would happen if there were thousands of buses waiting at the border so that when illegal immigrants crossed they were immediately driven to Washington, D. C. and released?
    At least that way the people who created the problem would have to deal with the consequences.
    Just a thought.

    Amen! 16
  10. Encouraging people to come here illegally, then creating laws and orders allowing them to remain here illegally while getting benefits is all Treason for which those responsible MUST be held accountable. It is Treason because the marxists around the world are at War with the American People, so those who commit these crimes are traitors by definition who deserve the punishment for treason by LAW!

    Amen! 27
