Illegal immigrant ‘gotaways’ crossing US-Mexico border number more than half a million, DHS sources say:
Average of over 55,000 known gotaways per month​ in FY-22, DHS sources say
The U.S.-Mexico border has had more than half a million known "gotaways" sneak across into the U.S. since fiscal year 2022 began on October 1, Fox News has learned.
Multiple senior Department of Homeland Security sources told Fox News of the rising number of known gotaways – illegal immigrants who are spotted crossing the border but are never caught – with three months remaining in FY’22.
That number has already eclipsed the 389,155 known​ gotaways that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas previosuly testified there were in all of FY'21.
There has been an average of over 55,000 known gotaways per month​ in FY'22, according to the DHS sources.
There have been approximately 900,000​ known gotaways since the beginning of FY'21, per the sources, which is equivalent to a population bigger than the city of San Francisco sneaking across the border without apprehension. --->READ MORE HERE
Over 500,000 immigrant ‘gotaways’ at US border may be roaming the country: report
More than 500,000 known “gotaway” immigrants have crossed the border into the US but evaded capture since the start of FY 2022, according to a new report.
Multiple senior Department of Homeland Security sources confirmed the number to Fox News on Monday, revealing that there has been an average of more than 55,000 known “gotaways” per month.
“Gotaways” is a commonly used term for illegal immigrants who have been spotted crossing the border by agents or on camera but were not caught or processed by officials.
With less than three months left in the fiscal year, 2022 has already seen a massive increase in the “gotaway” from the previous year after DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified in April that there had been more than 389,000 immigrants who evaded arrest in FY 2021.
Looking at the two years combined, the department has tracked approximately 900,000 known “gotaways,” according to the report. --->READ MORE HERE
