There isn’t much to say about this.
The Biden administration began dismantling immigration enforcement in January. Illegal immigration surged in February and March and has remained at historic levels in April and May. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has effectively abolished ICE to appease progressive activists.
ICE officers now spend their time idling or working out because there is nothing that they can do about the situation. The same is true of police officers in big cities who no longer enforce the law. Violent crime is exploding and illegal immigration is surging. Biden voters are getting what they wanted.
“In May 2021, CBP encountered 180,034 persons attempting entry along the Southwest Border. This total represented a 1 percent increase over April 2021.
Single adults continue to make up the majority of these encounters. In May 2021, CBP expelled 112,302 individuals under Title 42. CBP continues to expel single adults and family units that are encountered pursuant to CDC guidance under Title 42 authority. 62 percent of all May encounters resulted in a Title 42 expulsion.
Encounters along the Southwest Border of unaccompanied children and single minors from Northern Triangle countries dropped again this month by 23 percent, with 10,765 encounters in May 2021 compared with 13,940 in April 2021. Encounters of family units from Northern Triangle countries also dropped again, decreasing by 31 percent to 22,630 in May 2021, down from 32,674 in April.
The large number of expulsions during the pandemic has contributed to a larger-than-usual number of noncitizens making multiple border crossing attempts, and means total encounters somewhat overstate the number of unique individuals arriving at the border. Thirty-eight percent of encounters in May 2021 were individuals who had at least one prior encounter in the previous 12 months, compared to an average one-year re-encounter rate of 15 percent for Fiscal Years 2014-2019.
CBP enforcement numbers for May 2021 can be found here. …”
The number of illegal aliens coming across the border are at a 20 year high.
“U.S. authorities intercepted 180,034 migrants along the Mexico border in May, and a growing share have been arriving from nations outside Central America and Mexico, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data published Wednesday showing illegal crossing at a new 20-year high.
Border arrests have soared since President Biden took office, and the CBP figures show May was the busiest month yet. While the administration was overwhelmed this spring by a record influx of migrant teenagers and children crossing without parents, their numbers continued to decline last month, as did family groups, the data shows.
Those declines were offset by another increase in single adult migrants, with 121,082 apprehended last month. U.S. authorities have used a provision of the public health code to promptly “expel” the majority of those adults to Mexico, but the circular pattern has allowed many to attempt entries again and again without fear of legal consequence or jail time. …”
There are fewer unaccompanied children crossing the border. The president of Guatemala recently told Kamala Harris to her face that the Biden administration and its policies and mixed messages is the cause of the surge in illegal immigration. Coyotes are making a fortune taking his people to the border.
