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.”

You could still become one of America’s great leaders providing you don’t shxx your pants in public like poopy pants Joe. Really Kamala, get rid of that stupid SOB.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
