The Biden admin. announced yet another record-breaking month for alien encounters at the southern border. In an after-hours news dump last Friday, Customs and Border Protection announced that they encountered 251,487 aliens attempting to enter the United States illegally during December 2022.
December’s numbers represent the largest single-month encounter total in United States history. December also marks the tenth-straight month of encounter reports exceeding 200,000 aliens. The three-month sum for FY 2023, which began on October 1, is now 717,660 total encounters already.
Former acting ICE Director under President Trump, Tom Homan, said in a written statement on Friday:
Joe Biden is the first president in my lifetime to intentionally un-secure the border. By way of more than 90 executive orders, he undid the successful Trump-era policies that brought illegal immigration to a 40-year low and gave us the most secure border of our lifetimes. This president and his team were warned what would happen if they got rid of those policies. They did it anyway, and you’re looking at the consequences.
Former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan echoed Mr. Homan’s sentiment:
What’s been happening at the border the last two years continues to be a catastrophic crisis, and the White House, Secretary Mayorkas, and the open-borders advocates on the left continue to lie about it. Secretary Mayorkas has been in his post for two years. He has presided over all this chaos and destruction, willfully implementing every single one of his boss’ open-borders policies. Those policies have abjectly failed, yet he continues to absurdly claim the opposite, even to the point of lying under oath before Congress. No sane person could look at the border and claim we’re on the right course.
“The CBP Southwest Land Border Encounters Report reveals that since February 1, 2021, President Biden’s first full month in office, and December 31, 2022, Border Patrol agents and CBP officers encountered more than 4.5 million migrants along the southwest border with Mexico,” reports Breitbart News.
