The majority of Americans say the illegal immigration crisis at the southern border is an “invasion,” according to a new NPR/Ipsos poll.
The survey was conducted on 1,116 adults from the United States from July 28-29 and addressed their views on the ongoing border crisis.
When asked if the United States was currently “experiencing an invasion” at the southern border, the majority of respondents answered affirmatively, with 28% saying the statement is “completely true” and 25% saying it is “somewhat true.”
Additionally, half of respondents said that the border crisis was at least somewhat the cause of fentanyl overdoses and deaths in the United States. 22% of respondents said that it is “completely true” that “migrants bringing fentanyl and other illegal drugs over the southern border are responsible for the increase in drug overdoses and deaths in the U.S.” Another 28% said the statement was “somewhat true.”
According to the report, “there were 199,976 encounters along the southwest land border in July.” This 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 the entirety of fiscal year 2021.
As pointed out by Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, fiscal year 2022 outpaced the previous year in June.
“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.
