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.”

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
