Record 2 Million Migrants Cross Border Between Ports of Entry During Past 12 Months:
More than two million migrants illegally crossed the border from Mexico into the United States during Fiscal Year 2021. The crossings include 1.66 million apprehended by Border Patrol agents and an estimated 400,000 classified as “got aways.”
Border Patrol agents apprehended a record-setting 1,659,206 migrants who illegally crossed the border from Mexico during the recently ended fiscal year, according to the Southwest Border Land Encounters report released on Friday by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. Additionally, nearly 400,000 more migrants are estimated to be “got aways,” information received from Border Patrol officials revealed.
“The men and women of CBP continued to rise admirably to the challenge, despite the strain associated with operating during a global pandemic that has claimed far too many lives among our frontline personnel,” CBP Acting Commissioner Troy Miller said in a written statement. “CBP will continue its work to ensure safety and security at our borders, while managing a fair and orderly immigration system, and facilitating the legitimate trade and travel that is vital to the American economy.”
The apprehension of nearly 1.66 million migrants who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry represents an increase of nearly 315 percent over the previous fiscal year’s total of 400,651, the report indicates. The apprehension of migrant families skyrocketed by more than 763 percent. Unaccompanied minor apprehensions jumped by 374 percent and single adults by 235 percent. --->READ MORE HERE

U.S. officials come across nearly 2 million unauthorized migrants in FY 2021:
EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) – Almost 2 million people entered the United States without authorization in the 12-month period ending on Sept. 30, the U.S. government reported on Friday.
Most of the 1.96 million migrants apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol and the Office of Field Operations of U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Fiscal Year 2021 took place at the southern border, where sectors like Del Rio and the Rio Grande Valley have been dramatically overwhelmed at times.
Land encounters on the southern border with Mexico rose to a record 1.74 million and typically involved Border Patrol agents apprehending migrants coming over the border wall or unguarded portions of desert from New Mexico to California, and those who crossed the waters of the Rio Grande. The other encounters took place on the northern border, airports and seaports.
The previous record for migrant apprehensions at the southern border was 1.64 million in 2000, and the next highest figure of 1.62 million was reported in 1986, the year the U.S. Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act, which led to the legalization and a path to citizenship for more than 3 million undocumented immigrants. --->READ MORE HERE
