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 Unpublished Customs and Border Protection data obtained by The Washington Post provides details of the more than 1.7 million migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border between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

CNN Security Analyst: Biden Should Pause Immigration Enforcement After Texas Shooting

Published

Border crisis

Hours after the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left at least 21 dead on Tuesday, CNN national security analyst Juliette Kayyem suggested that the Biden administration should pause immigration enforcement in the area. It should be noted that Kayyem formerly served as an Assistant Secretary for Homeland Security in the Obama administration.

“The most important thing for the federal government to do right now is to say there will be no immigration enforcement during this period in that area,” Kayyem stated, adding that the school district was 80% Hispanic.

“[Texas] has a large immigration population,” Kayyem added. “You want parents with their kids; you don’t want people hiding right now, and we need to make that clear ASAP because of the political issues in Texas.”

“Again, I don’t know motives; we don’t know motives; I am just telling you demographics,” she said later. “It is a predominantly Hispanic population with a large immigrant community relatively near San Antonio.”

“We need the federal government to say right now, everyone is essentially safe harbor right now in terms of immigration status,” she said. “We need people to come forward, not to be fearful of immigration status; get their kids, get their family members, because what happens in incidents like this is we’re going to have a strong police presence, a strong federal presence. We know this.”

“A lot of people do not react, especially if their status is unknown., do not react to police presence as you or I may, and we want to make sure that they know, despite all the politics going on in Texas right now, it’s the federal government that’s in charge of immigration enforcement,” she continued. “And people are safe; get your kids, get your families together; do not hide. The White House just needs to say that right now.”

Kayyem’s comments come the month after illegal immigration at the southern border hit a new record high with 234,088 migrants being encountered by border officials in April. The record has been broken repeatedly since President Biden took office, the last time being in March 2022 and before that in July 2021 when 213,953 migrants were encountered at the southern border.

Texas City Considering State Of Emergency Due To Border Crisis

Border crisis

The border city of El Paso, Texas, is considering declaring a state of emergency over the worsening border crisis, city officials announced Wednesday.

“We are extremely grateful to all our partners including the NGOs, the County, State and Federal leaders who understand the extraordinary collaborative lift that is required,” Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino said in a statement.

Just days before the announcement, nearly 100 illegal immigrants were released into downtown El Paso as border facilities reached capacity.

“The migrants were released before dawn, and some quickly made plans to travel on to other cities, while others lingered on the streets of El Paso or at the airport — too broke to leave or book a hotel,” the New York Post reported.

The news comes as border officials brace for a further surge in illegal immigration as a result of President Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42, a Trump-era border security policy. According to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document obtained by ABC News, the end of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border each day.

“The DHS Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) produced projections for post-Title 42 Southwest Border encounters describing low, medium, high, or very high encounter scenarios,” the document says. “These scenarios underpin planning assumptions that generate requirements which in turn drive operational execution. Based on these projections the SBCC is currently planning for 6,000, 12,000 (high) and 18,000 (very high) encounters per day.”

The border is already undergoing the highest levels of illegal immigration on record. Last month, “234,088 migrants encountered at the Southern border in April, per a DHS court filing today. That’s the highest number in DHS history. 117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April. 113,248 were removed, including 96,908 expelled via Title 42,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin announced on Twitter.
