EXCLUSIVE: CBP to Report Record of Nearly 2 Million Migrants Encountered in 2021:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is set to report just under 2 million migrant encounters nationwide for the recently ended Fiscal Year 2021. The number of migrants encountered by Border Patrol agents and CBP officers jumped 202 percent over the previous year’s roughly 647,000.
CBP Officers and Border Patrol agents encountered nearly 1.96 million migrants nationwide during FY21 which ended on September 30, according to a highly placed source operating under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security. A document from the agency reviewed by Breitbart Texas revealed the record-breaking level of migrant encounters along the U.S.-Mexico Border.
Of the nearly 1.96 million migrants encountered, more than 1.66 million, a new record for Border Patrol, were migrants apprehended by U.S. Border Patrol agents at the southern, northern, and coastal borders. This represents an increase of 310 percent over the previous year’s 405,000 migrants.
The report for FY21 set a new record for the apprehension of migrants by Border Patrol agents for the nine southwest border sectors. The previous apprehension record of 1.64 million was set in FY2000, Breitbart Texas reported in late September.
Of the nearly 2 million migrants encountered by CBP and Border Patrol in FY2021, nearly 1.6 million took place following changes in immigration and border security policy following the Biden inauguration.
Single adult migrants accounted for more than 1.3 million of the total encounters, the report is expected to reveal. This is up from just under 537,000 the year before — an increase of nearly 146 percent. Of those, more than 616,000 came from Mexico and nearly 315,000 came from the Northern Triangle countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. --->READ MORE HERE

Congressman Unveils Bill that Would Give States Power to Veto Refugee Resettlement:
A plan by Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-MT) would strip President Joe Biden’s authority to resettle hundreds of thousands of refugees across the United States with no input from Congress or American communities.
Rosendale’s SECURE Act would give authority to Congress over the annual inflow of refugees rather than the president and would halt all refugee resettlement until Congress sets the yearly refugee cap, a numerical limit on refugee admissions.
Likewise, the plan would give governors a 30-day notice before refugees are resettled in their states so that they can have veto power over whether to admit or reject refugee resettlement for the year. This provision had been imposed by former President Trump through an executive order but Biden rescinded the policy in January.
The plan also hugely bulks up the nation’s vetting and screening procedures for refugees — requiring that every refugee be signed off to Congress by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the director of National Intelligence.
The requirement would certify that each refugee reviewed by DHS, the FBI, and the nation’s intelligence agencies is not a threat to national security and is likely to assimilate into American society. Foreign nationals considered unlikely to assimilate would be barred from securing refugee status --->READ MORE HERE
