BREAKING: Migrant Border Arrests Highest in 35 Years at 1.7 Million

Just last month when it was reported roughly 1.5 million migrants had been detained at the border in the fiscal year 2021, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas still defended President Biden’s border crisis by falsely stating the border is “secure.”

A mere month later and roughly an additional quarter of a million migrants have been arrested, reaching more than 1.7 million people who have been taken into U.S. custody; the highest number in 35 years. Unpublished Customs and Border Protection data obtained by The Washington Post provides details of the more than 1.7 million migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border between October 2020 through September 2021. The documents are expected to be released publicly sometime this week.

On Tuesday another Biden administration official refused to admit the reality our nation faces. During a confirmation hearing, Biden’s pick to head the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Chris Magnus refused to classify the situation at the southern border as a “crisis” only going so far as to admitting it is a “big problem.”

Daily Mail reports:

Illegal crossings began skyrocketing in the months after President Joe Biden was inaugurated – and while the administration initially tried to blame Trump’s policies for the increase, migrants have repeatedly said they made the trek to the U.S. with the belief the new administration would allow them to stay.

Another pull, migrants said, was the labor shortages in the U.S. exhibiting to them a need for workers.

In another dismissal of the growing crisis, Biden described the rise in spring 2021 as consistent with seasonal norms. That, however, did not remain true as the highest levels of illegal crossings came during the hottest months of the year, July and August.
More than 200,000 migrants were taken into CBP custody each month.

Biden’s team has continued to dismiss the crisis at the southern border, refusing to call it just that – a crisis – even as humanitarian issues emerged with overflowing holding and processing centers that reportedly served undercooked or spoiled food to unaccompanied minor migrants, as well as limited outdoor time and shower use.
