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.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
