Migrants From All Over World Cross Southern Border In Record Numbers; 100K Migrant ‘Got-Aways’ Since October, Says CBP Source

Migrants from all over world cross southern border in record numbers:
Migration to the southern border of the United States from far-off countries spiked in 2021 as economic turmoil and the Biden administration’s eased immigration policies prompted droves from other continents to traverse to America.
The number of people encountered at the southern border from countries other than Mexico or the three top countries of origin in Central America was seven times greater over the past 12 months ending in September than the previous year, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. One-in-5 people, or 378,000 of the 1.7 million, who were encountered at the southern border in the government’s fiscal year 2021 were from nations other than those four.
The biggest change in 2021 was the rise in arrivals from South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. In 2000, 97% of the migrants Border Patrol encountered were Mexican citizens. By 2014, more people apprehended at the southern border were from the Northern Triangle — El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras — than were from Mexico, data show. In 2019, nearly two-thirds of people encountered at the border were from one of the three Northern Triangle nations.
In 2021, more than 4,100 Russians were encountered compared to fewer than 500 the previous year. Apprehensions have spiked further in October, with more than 1,500 Russian citizens apprehended.
More than 48,000 Venezuelans were intercepted at the border in 2021, up from fewer than 2,800 in 2020.
While the Border Patrol historically has encountered small numbers of people from more than 100 nations every year, the number from some of those countries are rising significantly, as are the numbers of countries. Border Patrol agents in Del Rio, Texas, announced this week arrests of people from around the world, including Eritrea, Uzbekistan, Syria, and Lebanon. --->READ MORE HERE

EXCLUSIVE: 100K Migrant ‘Got-Aways’ Since October, Says CBP Source:
Border Patrol agents estimate more than 100,000 known migrant got-aways since the fiscal year began in October. A source operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, speaking on the condition of anonymity, says the agency recorded 47,500 got-a-ways during the month of October. That is followed by an additional 52,000 got-aways in November. The source believes the increase in November means more than 600,000 migrant got-aways will be recorded this fiscal year if the trend continues.
The source says the constant flow of migrants being apprehended along the southern border impedes the agency’s ability to adequately patrol miles of the border. The absence of routine patrols is driving the got-away numbers up as there are no available Border Patrol agents to respond to electronic sensors, camera activations, and unmanned aerial surveillance sightings. On average, more than 1,700 migrants avoided apprehension by the Border Patrol each day in November.
“The best we can do is just record the got-aways and move on,” the source explained. “We’re trying to increase patrols but the flow of migrants surrendering is unstoppable.”
The routine patrol of many areas along the southwest border has been a source of concern for many as the Border Patrol is relegated to processing, transporting, and providing transportation for thousands of migrants apprehended daily. --->READ MORE HERE
