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

Published

Border

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 Unpublished Customs and Border Protection data obtained by The Washington Post provides details of the more than 1.7 million migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border between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.

CBP Finally Releases September Numbers On Biden’s Border Crisis And They Aren’t Good

Published

Border crisis

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) finally released the data on border crossings in September. The numbers showed that Biden’s border crisis has continued with Border Patrol making about 1.66 million arrests of illegal immigrants entering the U.S. from Mexico for Fiscal Year 2021.

“Border crossings surpassed 1.6 million annually at least twice recently, in 1986 and in 2000,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “In 2019, when crossings reached a peak under the Trump administration, the Border Patrol made about 850,000 arrests.”

The Wall Street Journal noted that the 1.66 million arrests in the Fiscal Year 2021, which started in October 2020, was “the highest annual number ever recorded.”
CBP said that there were 192,001 apprehensions of illegal immigrants at the southern border during September, a number that is 
many times higher than the number of apprehensions usually recorded in September.

In response to the numbers, Chad Wolf, former acting DHS secretary, said that it is because Biden has eliminated “effective, humane border security policies that were working.”

“Instead of upholding the rule of law, the administration has chosen to open the border by eliminating effective, humane border security policies that were working, replace those policies with no alternative, and then process the subsequent historic flows of illegal aliens into the United States as quickly as possible,” Wolf said. “And make no mistake, contrary to the Biden administration’s spin, the vast majority of those apprehended at the southern border are being released into our communities, as CBP’s own publicly available numbers show. The men and women of CBP deserve so much better than this. They deserve leaders who will help them do their jobs, enforce the rule of law, and give them the tools they need. The Biden administration has done the opposite at every turn, and we’re all paying the price for it.”

The flood of illegal immigrants across the southern border is just one of the many crises that have arisen as a result of President Biden’s policies.

“Mr. Biden’s first months saw a cascading set of crises,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “The number of unaccompanied children arriving at the border began to surge, leaving the administration scrambling to establish a network of makeshift shelters at convention centers and sports arenas, to ensure the children didn’t languish in Border Patrol custody for longer than legally allowed. This year, nearly 145,000 children crossed the border into the U.S. without a parent, nearly double the previous record in 2019.”

Biden Administration to Reimplement Court-Ordered ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy in November

Published

Border

In August the Supreme Court declined to block a Texas lower-court ruling requiring the Biden administration to reinstate former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy for illegal immigrants attempting to cross the southern border.

The U.S. District Court in Texas ruled that the Biden administration’s attempt to eliminate the “Remain in Mexico” policy violated the Administrative Procedure Act, requiring them to reinstate it.

Thursday the Biden administration told courts the policy will be reimplemented in mid-November if it can get Mexico’s support, as it requires asylum-seekers who cross the southern border illegally to remain in Mexico before their appearance in immigration court.

Although the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has appealed the case and plans to overhaul the program, it is still required to reimplement the policy which was formally called the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).

In a statement Thursday, DHS said “Mexico is a sovereign nation that must make an independent decision to accept the return of individuals without status in Mexico as part of any reimplementation of MPP. Discussions with the Government of Mexico concerning when and how MPP will be reimplemented are ongoing.”

The Hill reports:

DHS officials said it has a “general commitment” to deciding new asylum cases within six months and plans to construct “tent courts” near Laredo and Brownsville, Texas.

It also plans to expand the types of asylum-seekers who will not be subjected to MPP, but the filing doesn’t provide details on who that would include, such as families with children. Mexico has argued that the sick, elderly, as well as those in the LGBT community, should be exempt from MPP.

Both the vulnerability of those returns and the timing for hearing were issues raised by Mexico, along with a demand the U.S. provide “better coordination” on when migrants would be expelled into the country.
