Border officials encountered nearly 200,000 migrants at the southern border in July, bringing the total for fiscal year 2022 to just below 2 million.
According to a new report from Customs and Border Protection, “there were 199,976 encounters along the southwest land border in July.”
“Of those, 22 percent involved individuals who had at least one prior encounter in the previous 12 months, compared to an average one-year re-encounter rate at the southwest land border of 15 percent for FY2014-2019,” the report added. “Two-thirds (67 percent) of all southwest land border encounters were single adults, with 134,362 encounters in July, a four percent decrease compared to June.”
The news brings the total number of migrant encounters at the southern border in fiscal year 2022 to 1,946,780 – already far more than the 1,734,686 encounters in all of fiscal year 2021. Fiscal year 2022 outpaced the previous year in June, as noted by Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin.
“CBP announces 207,416 migrant encounters at the border in June, down from the record high of 239,000 in May, but the fourth month in a row of more than 200,000. There were 15,272 unaccompanied children in June, an increase over May (14,678). 6 terror watchlist hits in June,” Melugin wrote on Twitter.
“There have now been 1,746,119 encounters at the southern border in FY’22, already eclipsing the record setting 1,734,686 set in all of FY’21 and there are still 3 months left in FY’22. This year is on pace to absolutely shatter last year’s record and push over 2 million,” Melugin added.
