Yes, There's an Invasion at the Border and It's Not Racist to Say So; 117K Migrants Apprehended in August After Entering Texas-Based Border Sectors

Yes, There's an Invasion at the Border and It's Not Racist to Say So:
Republican candidates across the country are running ads saying that Joe Biden and the Democrats have “opened the borders” and are responsible for the explosion of fentanyl overdoses, and are referring to the influx of two million uninvited immigrants as an “invasion.”
In the infamous words of Meat Loaf, “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad.”
No, Democrats aren’t “responsible” for the explosion of fentanyl overdoses. Their policies at the border may have led to a dramatic increase in seizures of the drug, but the vast majority of fentanyl that comes into the United States is brought in through ports of entry on ships and planes, not carried over the border by individuals.
But to claim that Joe Biden “opened the borders” is absolutely, 100% true.
In Biden’s first 100 days in office, he took more than 94 executive actions on immigration. Those actions included:
1. Stopping the construction of the border wall.
2. Attempting to halt deportations for 100 days.
3. Suspending new enrollments in Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP, aka “Remain in Mexico”).
4. Terminating Asylum Cooperative Agreements (ACAs) with Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.
5. Ending Prompt Asylum Case Review (PACR) for non–Mexicans and Humanitarian Asylum Review Program (HARP) for Mexicans.
Biden also pulled thousands of border agents from patrolling to interdict drugs like fentanyl and keep people from crossing illegally, and has them instead doing the routine processing of illegal aliens and asylum seekers. --->READ MORE HERE

117K Migrants Apprehended in August After Entering Texas-Based Border Sectors:
Border Patrol agents in the five Texas-based sectors apprehended nearly 117,000 migrants in August, according to a source operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
Agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo, Del Rio, Big Bend, and El Paso Sectors apprehended approximately 65 percent of the total number of migrants taken into custody along the southwest border with Mexico in August, the source revealed. The five Texas-based border sectors accounted for nearly 117,000 of the more than 181,000 apprehended. This represents just under 3,800 migrants per day being apprehended in the Texas-based sectors.
The Del Rio Sector reported the largest number of apprehensions in the nation for the second straight month, the report reviewed by Breitbart Texas revealed. Agents in this historically quiet sector apprehended more than 52,000 migrants.
For more than ten years, the Rio Grande Valley Sector led the nation in apprehensions. In August, the sector fell into third place as agents apprehended just over 27,000 migrants. This is a significant decrease from the 35,000 apprehended in July.
Agents in the El Paso Sector jumped into the number two spot with the apprehension of just under 30,000 migrants. This is up from approximately 25,000 apprehended in July.
Since the beginning of the current fiscal year, which began on October 1, 2021, agents in these sectors apprehended a total of 1.25 million migrants. --->READ MORE HERE
