Border chaos continues in October with record-setting arrests:
The Border Patrol apprehended nearly 160,000 illegal immigrants jumping the southern border in October, Homeland Security announced Monday, toppling yet another monthly record for President Biden.
That still marked a bit of an improvement compared to the summer, when monthly apprehensions flirted with 200,000. And key yardsticks of illegal activity, including unaccompanied juveniles and families traveling with children, saw drops.
Still, it was by far the worst October in records dating back to the start of this century.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Troy Miller, in announcing the numbers, saw the positive.
“October marks the third straight month of declining unauthorized migrant encounters along the Southwest border — with particularly sharp drops in families and unaccompanied children – and CBP’s workforce continues to work with partners across the federal government and throughout the hemisphere to disrupt the smugglers intent on exploiting vulnerable migrants for profit,” he said. --->READ MORE HERE

October Migrant Apprehensions at Border Jump 130 Percent from Prior Year:
Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 159,000 migrants who illegally crossed the southwest border with Mexico between ports of entry in October. The record-setting apprehensions represent an increase of nearly 130 percent over the previous October.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials released the October Southwest Land Border Encounters Report after the close of business on Monday night. The official report confirms a leaked Border Patrol document reviewed earlier this month by Breitbart Texas revealing more than 158,000 migrants.
The official report shows that Border Patrol agents apprehended 158,575 migrants during the first month of the new fiscal year. This is up from only 69,032 in October 2020.
The more than 158,000 migrants apprehended include 104,441 single adults (a 75 percent increase from last October), 41,487 family units (a 795 percent increase), and 12,647 unaccompanied minors (a 170 percent increase).
The Rio Grande Valley Sector continues to lead the nine southwest border sectors with 45,324 apprehensions. This is up from only 17,617 one year ago (an increase of 157 percent). --->READ MORE HERE
