Congressman Andy Biggs premiered a new border documentary titled Alien Invasion at The Heritage Foundation last week. The documentary addresses how border crisis began, its consequences, and offers solutions to address the crisis.
The documentary includes interviews with members of Congress, former Trump Administration officials, law enforcement, and citizens living along the U.S.-Mexico border. It also features never-before-seen footage from cartel-infiltrated areas in Yuma, Arizona, and Panama’s Darien Gap—a region where many migrants begin their journey to the U.S.-Mexico border.
“How anyone can turn a blind eye to the current state of the southern border is absurd,” said Biggs in a press release.
“Over the past year, I have traveled to the U.S.-Mexico border numerous times and interviewed dozens of experts so that I could create a comprehensive documentary highlighting the severity of the Biden Border Crisis, explained Biggs. “This film shows realities—not partisanship—and hopefully presents new perspectives to my open borders colleagues. If you have questions on how we got to the border’s breaking point, what immediate solutions there are to help us resecure the border, or are wanting to learn more about the state of our border, this is the documentary for you.”
The border has become so porous that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey was forced to take matters into his own hands and ordered a border barrier to be constructed out of shipping containers in open spots in Yuma in August.
The Yuma Sector has been one of the hardest hit areas for migrant traffic and drug trafficking.
The Yuma sector alone saw a 1,200 percent increase in encounters in Fiscal Year 2021 compared to the year before.
