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:
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:
(A) housing; 0.00

Over 600 ‘gotaway’ illegal immigrants disappeared into the U.S. in just one weekend
A video shows just one group of over 150 migrants crossing illegally into Eagle Pass, TX. FOX LA’s Bill Melugin reports the group is virtually all adults.
The group of adults crossing was merely one moment in time “as the sun came up” but that scenario occurs non-stop. The Border Patrol in the Del Rio sector explains that an unbelievably high amount of over 600 individuals simply are described as “gotaways.”
That means not only are their whereabouts within the United States completely unknown, but so are their identities. They could be human traffickers, drug smugglers, victims, terrorists, kidnapped children, etc.
Not only did the 600 plus people disappear into the country, but the high number was in just one weekend. News also broke of the arrest of a rapist with a forcible sodomy conviction of a migrant who illegally crossed the border in Virginia.
Another huge single group of 150+ migrants crossed illegally into Eagle Pass, TX as the sun came up this morning. Almost all single adults.
