192,001 migrants caught in September; border notches one of worst years on record:
Homeland Security reported another 192,001 encounters with illegal immigrants on the southwestern border in September, topping off one of the worst fiscal years on record.
The monthly total marked a slight decline from July and August, which Customs and Border Protection touted as a needed improvement.
But the numbers were still startlingly bad for an administration that insists it has things under control along the boundary with Mexico.
Fiscal year 2021 ended with 1.7 million encounters with illegal immigrants. Nearly all of those came on the watch of President Biden, and security experts attribute the number to policy changes and a lack of enforcement since his inauguration.
Among the brighter spots in September was a decline in the number of illegal immigrant juveniles traveling without parents, which have been among the most troubling cases. Fewer than 15,000 were apprehended in the month, down from highs closer to 20,000 earlier this year
Still, the fiscal year ends with the worst total on record in that category. --->READ MORE HERE

Border Patrol Apprehends 90K Migrants in 18 Days:
A source within Customs and Border Protection notes the Border Patrol is off to a record start for Fiscal Year 2022 compared to last October. The source says Border Patrol has apprehended more than 90,000 migrants in the first 18 days of the reporting year–exceeding the 69,049 apprehended in the entire month of October 2020.
In the Yuma Sector, the source says more than 12,000 migrants were encountered in 18 days. In all of October 2020, only 788 were apprehended within that sector, a more than 1,400 percent increase.
The jump in statistics is being felt in other areas of the southwest border as well. In the Rio Grande Valley, the busiest sector for the Border Patrol, the source reports more than 26,000 were apprehended during the first weeks of FY2022. Many choose to surrender, hoping for a quick release due to the overwhelming flow of migrants to detention centers.
The number of apprehensions in the Rio Grande Valley in 18 days is nearly 50 percent higher than all of October 2020. During the entire month of October 2020, 17,619 were apprehended in that sector. --->READ MORE HERE
