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

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.”

Texas City Considering State Of Emergency Due To Border Crisis

Published

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.

Border Patrol Union Leader Warns Biden Ending Title 42 Will Give ‘Control To The Cartels’

Biden Confused

On Wednesday, a union leader representing U.S. Border Patrol agents warned that the Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42 next week will give the cartels full control of the border.

“That we just don’t have anybody in the field, that we just can’t patrol the border. When you look right now, we already start our shifts with 50% of our resources not even performing enforcement activities. They’re in administrative duties,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said during an appearance on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”

“Once this explodes, we’re going to have nearly 100% of our people doing administrative duties rather than enforcement duties. That’s going to give complete control to the cartels. That’s a scary situation to be in,” he added.

Judd’s comments come as “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,” according to Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin.

If the Biden administration successfully ends Title 42 on May 23, the number of migrants encountered at the southern border in a month is expected to surge to over 500,000, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document obtained by ABC News. The document warns that the end of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants attempting to 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.
