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.”

Report: Deportations Dropped By 90% Under President Biden

Deportation

Deportations of illegal immigrants have dropped by 90% under President Biden, according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

“Immigration enforcement, as measured by the number of aliens removed from the country, has collapsed to the lowest level since the mid-1990s, according to ICE deportation records the Center has obtained. Under policies imposed by the Biden administration, removals dropped by 80 percent since last year’s low point during the pandemic lockdown, and by 90 percent since 2019, the last normal year for ICE operations,” Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, said in the report.

The report explained that, “Under Biden Policies, ICE Removals Have Plummeted to a Fraction of Normal Levels. On his first day of office (January 20, 2021), President Biden issued a directive halting virtually all deportations for 100 days and greatly restricting immigration enforcement activity. Following a lawsuit by Texas asserting grave fiscal and public safety harm to its citizens from a near-suspension of federal immigration enforcement, within two weeks federal judge Drew Tipton halted the deportation freeze and later enjoined it indefinitely pending further legal action.”

“The restrictions on other enforcement actions have remained in place with some minor modifications, meaning that, in effect, ICE has been limited to removing known or suspected terrorists, aliens convicted of very serious crimes (mostly those defined as ‘aggravated felons’), and recent illegal arrivals,” the report added.

“The number of aliens removed who had serious criminal convictions also has declined by over 50 percent from 2020 and by 65 percent since 2019,” the report observed.
The Biden administration’s restrictions on ICE have resulted in the highest levels of illegal immigration on record as the agency has been “functionally abolished.”

The Washington Post reported, “ICE under President Biden is an agency on probation. The new administration has rejected calls from some Democrats to eliminate the agency entirely, but Biden has placed ICE deportation officers on a leash so tight that some say their work is being functionally abolished.”
