Biden’s Open Border is Attracting a Huge New Category of Illegal Migrants; More Migrants Coming Through Mexico From Far-Flung Countries

Biden’s open border is attracting a huge new category of illegal migrants:
Word of Team Biden’s open-borders policy is now attracting a whole new wave of illegal migrants, on top of the steady flow of 1) Mexicans and 2) former residents of the Northern Triangle nations of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador: The rest of the world now accounts for more illegal border-crossers — 700,000 this fiscal year alone — than either.
As the nearby chart shows, the swell that began as soon as Biden took office hasn’t slowed but grown. Much of the “other nations” group comes from Cuba, Venezuela, Columbia and Nicaragua — but Haiti and even Ukraine contribute, too.
Vice President Kamala Harris’ supposed mission of addressing the “root causes” of Northern Triangle migration looks even more pathetic, and not just because she’s barely pretended to try: The rush from Cuba, etc., would drown out any progress (if she’d actually made any).
This is a clear result of President Joe Biden’s decision to do away with everything his predecessor (and even President Barack Obama) had done to stop the tide: The Border Patrol now basically waves every comer in, treats nearly all as “asylum seekers” — and sends them on their way into the interior, requesting only that they check in from their final destinations. --->READ MORE HERE
More migrants coming through Mexico from far-flung countries: analysis
The number of migrants coming to the US from Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries has shifted to people making the journey from as far away as Cuba, Colombia and Venezuela in the last few years as the Biden administration struggles to handle the surge at the border, a new analysis finds.
Traditionally, the bulk of migrants setting out for the southern border came from Mexico and the countries that make up what’s known as the Northern Triangle — Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
But those numbers have shifted to Cuba, Colombia, Venezuela and Nicaragua in recent years — representing a dramatic increase of 11,000% since 2007, according to the analysis of Border Patrol statistics by CNN.
“US Border Patrol encounters still show more migrants from Mexico attempting to cross the Southwest border in July than from any other individual country. But so far this fiscal year, for the first time, encounters with migrants from outside Mexico and the Northern Triangle are outpacing encounters with migrants from either of those regions​,” the report said.
According to the analysis, 732,661 migrants from outside Mexico and the Northern Triangle have arrived at the border in fiscal year 2022, which ​ends on Sept. 30, compared to 630,442 from Mexico and 683,894 from the Northern Triangle.
In 2020, the number of migrants from the “other” countries was only 43,715.
The nearly 178,000 Cubans who were stopped along the southern border between October and July already exceed the number who fled the communist island nation during the massive Mariel boatlift of that began in April 1980.
About 125,000 freedom-seeking Cubans crammed onto vessels bound for Florida before the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro ended the exodus six months later. --->READ MORE HERE
