Southern Border Patrol illegal immigrants

President Joe Biden has been in the White House for only one single year. In that year, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents apprehended over 2 million migrants at the Southern border. According to a National Review analysis of CBP data, that is the highest number of illegal immigrant apprehensions in over 20 years.

“The 2 million apprehensions in 2021 is more than double the 921,812 apprehensions in 2019, during a surge at the border under then-President Donald Trump’s administration. There were 341,519 Southwest border apprehensions in 2017, Trump’s first year in office” reports National Review.

“All monthly records” have been broken since May of Biden’s presidency. Andrew Arthur, resident fellow in law and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies made a stunning observation: “This migration doesn’t look anything like” historical trends we have seen. “Apprehensions typically peak in May, and decline through January, when they pick up again in February” said Arthur.

The peak this pas year was in July, when CBP agents apprehended 213,593 migrants at the border. The Biden Administration has proven to be absolutely inept when it comes to the border crisis. “Crisis” was something the White House vehemently denied for majority of its first year.

Biden said of the surge, “it happens every single, solitary year.” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to blame Trump. In May Psaki said the surge began during and was exacerbated by the Trump administration…after four years of an immigration system rooted in destructive and chaotic policies, President Biden is taking the challenge head on and is building a fair, orderly, and human immigration system.”

Migrants sick of waiting, surge border after judge temporarily blocks Biden from revoking Title 42

Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted recently, on May 17, that agents under his command apprehended 2,849 migrants last weekend. However, as migrants no longer want to wait for Title 42 to end, they have surged the border.

In a Breitbart exclusive, the media outlet reported the “number will be eclipsed as it appears the total could approach 4,000 this weekend.” Unfortunately, “the migrants did not appear to know or understand that the Title 42 will not end on Monday due to a federal court order. They expressed they were simply tired of waiting” the report adds.

Between April 1st and May 15 of this year, approximately 513,000 migrants illegally crossed the southern border.

On Friday, Louisiana Judge Robert Summerhays issued a preliminary injunction, and ordered to temporarily block the Biden Administration from revoking Title 42.

Breitbart notes “whether Title 42 ends or not, migrants say they are tired of waiting and surged across the Rio Grande into the Eagle Pass, Texas, area of operations. As many as 3,600 crossed so far this weekend — eclipsing last weekend’s total of just over 2,800 migrant apprehensions in the Del Rio Sector — according to a source operating within U.S. Customs and Border Protection.”

In just a couple of hours on Sunday evening, agents apprehended more than 700 migrants. Agents identified majority of the migrants as Honduran nationals, and some as Colombian.

One source told Breitbart resources were not available to transport migrants from the border to the processing station. It also appears the NGOs who regularly shelter the migrants are overloaded as migrants are reportedly being dropped off at an Eagle Pass Stripes convenience store.

“The crossings are not without danger. On Saturday, seven migrants were swept off their feet in the middle of the night forcing Border Patrol agents to jump into action to save their lives” Breitbart Texas reported. Those seven were lucky, whereas the bodies of three migrants were recovered at the Del Rio Sector.
