Border Apprehensions Skyrocket Month-Over-Month; Up 263 Percent Since October 2019

MEXICO-US-HONDURAS-MIGRATION

According to US Customs and Border Protection, more than 164,000 people were apprehended at the border just last month. Migrants were attempting to illegally cross into the United States via Mexico’s border. The number is double the number who were apprehended in the same month of 2020.

Numbers for the month were slightly lower than September, seeing a 14 percent decrease, and only 23 percent lower than July’s numbers, the highest total in 21 years with 213,593 apprehensions.

Compared to 2020, the month-over-month numbers represent a whopping 128 percent increase. 71,929 were apprehended in October of 2020. Compared to 2019, the numbers represent a 263 percent increase when 45,139 migrants were apprehended in October of 2019.

The New York Post reports that roughly two-thirds of all apprehensions were single adults. Acting Commissioner of CBP Troy Miller said in a statement:

“CBP’s workforce continues to demonstrate excellence and dedication as they manage heightened travel demands on the border, facilitate a return to normal travel and trade at all our ports of entry, and manage migrant encounters in a safe, orderly, and humane way.”

There is much more numerical data that provides insight into the crisis in addition to simple apprehensions. The New York Post reports:

According to CBP, 29 percent of those apprehended in October had at least one encounter with border agents within the past 12 months, compared to an average re-encounter rate of 14 percent between October 2013 and September 2019.

The agency added that more than 93,000 migrants (57 percent of the total) encountered at the US-Mexico border in October were processed for expulsion under Title 42, an order that allowed US officials to expel migrants without seeing an immigration judge.

October also saw decreases in the number of encounters of unaccompanied children and those in family units, which dropped 11 percent and 34 percent from September, respectively. The number of family unit individuals, over 42,000, was less than half of the peak hit in August.

Unfortunately the daily occurrence is wearing on our border patrol. “Agents are arresting hundreds of migrants every day, and on Friday, agent in the Rio Grande Valley Sector reported encountering nearly 2,000 migrants within 24 hours.”

IG Audit shows nonprofit wasted $17 million taxpayer dollars on hotels to not house illegal foreign nationals

An audit report by the Inspector General shows enraging information as to exactly how millions of dollars from the American people were completely wasted.

One doesn’t need to read past the IG report’s headline to become furious: “ICE Spent Funds on Unused Beds, Missed COVID-19 Protocols and Detention Standards while Housing Migrant Families in Hotels.”

In summary, an unbelievable $17 million was wasted on not housing illegal foreign nationals. At the heart of the story is Endeavors, a nonprofit which has received half a billion dollars in taxpayer money “through no-bid government contracts to house foreign nationals who illegally entered the U.S. and were released by the Biden administration instead of being deported” reports The Center Square.

The audit evaluated the process used by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to grant no bid contracts to Endeavors and their compliance with federal law, the article explains.

The report evaluated an $86.9 million sole source contract first awarded to Endeavors earlier this year. The contract was awarded for six months to provide “temporary shelter and processing services for families who have not been expelled and are therefore placed in immigration proceedings for their removal from the United States,” The Center Square previously reported.

Months after it received its first no bid contract, Endeavors received a second $530 million contract and hired former Biden administration official Andrew Lorenzen-Straight as its senior director for migrant services and federal affairs, Axios reported.

The Center Square explains:

Sole source contracts are used when an agency can demonstrate the contract meets specific and justified criteria. If contracts don’t meet one of the criteria, they must be awarded through an open competitive process.

Endeavors has no professional history of providing housing services and has never provided beds or all-inclusive emergency family residential services, OIG auditors found. Those critical of DHS’ contract process argue the agency should be awarding contracts through an open competitive process to ensure that those bidding for funds can offer the services they claim they can provide.

Under the contract in question, for six months between March and September 2021, Endeavors was responsible for providing 1,239 beds and other necessary services in hotels. It used six hotels and repurposed them as Emergency Family Reception Sites to accommodate families staying less than three days while ICE considered conditions of release, including alternatives to detention.

The IOG made four recommendations for ICE to improve its contracting and oversight of hotel facility management and operations. “ICE concurred with one recommendation and didn’t concur with three. Based on information ICE provided in its response, the IOG said it considered one recommendation resolved and closed, and three recommendations administratively closed.”
