The invaders are pouring in like rain from the sky.
No one should really believe “highest in 15 years.”
Seems more likely that these numbers are “the highest ever in history.”
We don’t have any way of knowing, because there is a news blackout.
Preliminary enforcement data for March confirms what border officials have been saying for weeks: The number of migrants crossing into the United States has skyrocketed to the highest levels in at least 15 years, and record numbers of teenagers and children arriving without parents have overwhelmed the government’s ability to care for them.
U.S. agents took more than 171,000 migrants into custody last month, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection figures that contradict Biden’s claims that his administration is facing an influx no different from previous years. The rapid increase in border arrests and detentions – which has more than doubled since January – underscores the magnitude of the challenge facing an administration that has promised more-humane and more-welcoming immigration policies.
Many are not taken into custody.
Nearly 1,000 people per day are sneaking into the United States without being identified or taken into custody because U.S. border agents are busy attending to migrant families and unaccompanied children while also trying to stop soaring numbers of male adults, according to three U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials familiar with the data.
While CBP has never claimed to interdict every border crosser, the number of so-called got aways recorded in recent weeks is the highest in recent memory, said two of the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the data. The agency defines a got away as an individual who is not turned back to Mexico or apprehended, and is no longer being actively pursued by Border Patrol.
Counting got aways is not an exact science, but CBP has spent more than $1 billion over the past two decades on surveillance technology and camera networks that have given the agency far greater ability to detect illegal crossings in real time. Apprehending those individuals is another matter.
I also don’t believe those numbers.
They are just throwing numbers out there.
However, we’re reporting on them, just so you know what they’re saying, and can draw your own conclusions.
Based on what we’re seeing, I think it is fair to estimate that as many as 10-12 million people could cross the border this year.
The Biden people plan to give them all free healthcare, and other government benefits, and also make them citizens.
