Illegal immigration ticks up; DHS border numbers show worst November on record :
The Biden administration oversaw the worst November on record for illegal border activity, with Customs and Border Protection recording nearly 174,000 encounters with illegal immigrants.
That’s more than twice what was recorded in November 2020 and more than five times the rate from November 2019, both of which were under President Trump.
November’s numbers also showed an uptick of 5% compared to October. Usually, illegal border crossings decline at that point, as the cold weather and holiday season begin to tamp down on activity.
CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus, who was just sworn in for the job this month, said his employees are working hard, but he offered no solutions to the Biden border surge.
“CBP’s vigilance is key to disrupting smugglers and transnational criminal organizations as they exploit vulnerable populations and attempt to traffic illegal and dangerous products,” the new commissioner said.
The agency said the massive border numbers don’t reflect all that’s going on. --->READ MORE HERE

November Migrant Apprehensions Along Southwest Border Jump 140 Percent over Last Year:
Apprehensions of migrants by Border Patrol agents along the southwest border with Mexico jumped 140 percent in November over the previous year. Agents apprehended nearly 166,000 migrants who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry during November — more than the three previous Novembers combined.
During the second month of Fiscal Year 2022, Border Patrol agents apprehended 165,783 migrants who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border, according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Southwest Land Border Encounters report released late Friday afternoon. The apprehensions represent an increase of more than four percent over the October apprehensions and a 140 percent increase over the previous year.
Since February, President Joe Biden’s first full month in office and after he ended the Trump-era border security and immigration policies, Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 1.7 million migrants. In nine of the first ten months of his administration, agents apprehended well over 150,000 migrants, peaking in July when agents apprehended more than 200,000 migrants.
The Rio Grande Valley Sector continues as the busiest sector in terms of migrant apprehensions with 47,710 apprehensions. This is followed by the Del Rio (29,757), Yuma (22,708), and Tucson (21485) Sectors. The apprehension of migrants in the Yuma Sector in November represents an increase of nearly 2,200 percent over the previous year when agents apprehended only 990 migrants. --->READ MORE HERE
