August 9, 2021 Texas Republican Representative Chip Roy wrote a letter to the Department of Homeland Security asking for critical information on the border crisis. “Please provide information, including documents and correspondence relating to” the letter began, followed by 13 categories, each with multiple subcategories.

Roy’s office just now received the important information about who crossed our borders in 2021. The full response by the DHS can be seen here:

21-3082 DHS ROY RESPONSE ENCLOSURE – 1219890

In many instances DHS answers a question with a website link for further details. For example, question 2 asks for “The total number of migrants who unlawfully entered the United States and were taken into the custody of CBP since January 20, 2021.” The question further asked how the individuals were disaggregated by.

DHS responded: The nationwide Encounters page provides U.S. Border Patrol’s Title 8 apprehensions, Office of Field Operations’ inadmissible individuals under Title 8, and Title 42 expulsions for fiscal years (FY) 2020, 2021, and 2022 to date…this information can be parsed out further, by such filters as demographics, citizenship, location of apprehension/inadmissible, etc, and is available at: https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/stats/nationwide-encounters.

Not surprisingly, when questions were directly answered, the numbers are astounding. Question 9 asks how many migrants who unlawfully entered the United States since January 20, 2021 have a connection to a Mexican drug cartel, then further asked for the names of the gangs and cartels to be identified.

183 individuals from the notorious gang M.S. 13 were apprehended, in addition to members of 13 additional gangs, resulting in a total of 479 individuals.

Question 10 asks for information on “Migrants who have unlawfully entered the United States, since January 20, 2021, who (A) were apprehended by CBP” and
(B) are included one a list maintained by the Federal Government relating to terrorists or individuals prohibited from boarding a commercial aircraft.”

DHS answered: “From January 20, 2021, through December 31, 2021, U.S. Border Patrol conducted 1,911,942 encounters nationwide to include 1,083,275 Title 42 expulsions and 828,667 Title 8 apprehensions.” It noted the same individual can potentially be subject to expulsion under Title 42 multiple times.

As for those on a terror watchlist, CBP Operations “has arrested 42 subjects who were on the terror watchlist and attempted to enter the United States illegally. These numbers are inclusive of anyone who may be on the No-Fly List.”

Question 13 addresses the high cost of illegal immigration to U.S. citizens. The answers are jaw dropping:

  • 13. The total amount of Federal funding obligated or expended for expenses relating to the care of migrants who unlawfully entered the United States since January 20, 2021, including— Amount of federal funding obligated/Expended by CBP:

    The DEMON RATS will always obfuscate, or plainly lie. They are the folowers of LUCIFER, the Father of lies!
    The DEMON RATS have abandoned all semblance of SERVING the people who elected them in office to put in place the people best suited for the service demanded of them.
    They only install sycophants who basically are slaves to their whims!

    I am and we all should be praying for Jesus Christ to return to get us out of this worldly mess this whole world is in. There is no reason for taxpayers to have to pay out millions of dollars for the care of unlawful migrants. I am a 92 year old low income widow and have
    not been offered any help from those in Washington who are giving all that money away.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers working at the Otay Mesa Commercial Facility discovered $18 million dollars’ worth of methamphetamine hidden within a shipment of squash.

Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) revealed in a press release on Monday, at approximately 6:47 a.m.,that CBP officers encountered a 44-year-old male driving a commercial tractor-trailer with a shipment manifested for squash. The driver, a valid border crossing card holder, was referred for further examination by CBP officers along with the tractor-trailer and shipment.

Non-intrusive scanning technology was utilized to conduct a full scan of the tractor trailer which showed irregularities and CBP officers requested a CBP human and narcotics detection canine. The canine team responded and alerted officers to the presence of narcotics.

A total of 1,419 packages concealed within the shipment of squash was discovered and extracted. The narcotics were tested and identified as methamphetamine with a total weight of 11,469 pounds with an estimated street value of $18,350,400.

“Our officers’ commitment to duty, excellence, and the safety of our nation is truly commendable. These results serve as an outstanding display of effectiveness in thwarting the illegal importation of narcotics,” stated Rosa E. Hernandez, Otay Mesa Area Port Director. “Their exceptional efforts truly embody the highest standards of service.”

The seizures are part of Operation Apollo, a holistic counter-fentanyl effort that began on October 26, 2023 in southern California, and expanded to Arizona on April 10, 2024, the CBP release reveals. Operation Apollo focuses on intelligence collection and partnerships, and utilizes local CBP field assets augmented by federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners to boost resources, increase collaboration, and target the smuggling of fentanyl into the United States.

The CDC states that more than 150 people die every day from drug overdoses related to synthetic opioids derived from fentanyl.
