During this fiscal year, federal authorities encountered more than 1,746,119 undocumented migrants, a record breaker for any fiscal year since 1960, according to Custom Border Patrol reports.
To make matters worse, more than half a million migrants who illegally crossed the U.S. border this fiscal year have successfully evaded authorities, according to a new report published by the Department of Homeland Security.
The department said there has been a monthly average of about 55,000 “gotaways” — illegal immigrants who are detected by authorities crossing the border but evade capture — during the Fiscal Year 2022, which began Oct. 1, 2021.
In a recent interview with The Federalist, former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott and senior fellow for the Texas Public Policy Foundation said the actual number of gotaways for this fiscal year is most likely much higher than half a million.
“The 500,000 that are documented, they do exist. But by leaving hundreds and hundreds of miles of border completely unpatrolled for days or weeks at a time, which is what’s going on currently because most agents are in processing, that number is very, very, very artificially low,” Mr. Scott said. --->READ MORE HERE
US shatters record for border stops in single year — despite June drop:
They just keep coming.
The US recorded more stops along the Mexico border so far in Fiscal 2022 than in any accounting year in the 20-year history of the Department of Homeland Security — with three months still to go.
In all, 207,416 migrant encounters were recorded in June, according to US Customs and Border Protection, for a total of 1,746,119 stops along the southern border since Oct. 1 — the most the agency has recorded for any fiscal year since 1960.
And the number of migrant encounters along the southern border hit that mark despite dropping 14% in June from May’s record high, according to data released by the Biden administration Friday.
Nationwide, border officials have encountered more than 2 million migrants since Oct. 1, 2021. --->READ MORE HERE
