(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Already facing withering criticism for taking a tropical paradise vacation while the country reels from a deadly winter storm and chaos at the southern border, President Joe Biden faced renewed fire for trying to hide the latest record-high illegals number in yet another round of open border pandemonium.
The numbers were some of the most disastrous ever recorded, with Customs and Border Protection reporting 233,740 migrant encounters, the highest in history for November, and a staggering increase over last November, which totaled 174,845.
A reminder, these numbers do not include known gotaways. CBP sources tell us there were at least 73,000 known gotaways in the month of November alone. These are people who are detected or seen, but there is no manpower to get to them for capturer. @FoxNews

The news of another record-setting high number of illegals comes as the Supreme Court on Tuesday stayed the Trump-era Title 42 immigration policy that many fear if lifted would result in an overwhelming flow of illegal immigrants streaming across the border.

“I’ve heard you in the Judiciary Committee recently, in the summer, testify that the border is secure,” asked Rep. Dan Bishop, R-N.C. “Secretary Mayorkas, do you continue to maintain that the border is secure?”
“Yes, and we are working day in and day out to enhance its security,” Mayorkas boasted.
AZ: 400+ migrants crossed into Yuma this morning—The ones I talked to say they are from Moldova, Russia & Cuba. One Moldovan man told us he took an Uber from Tijuana to this drop off point. He says he was told that “the border is open.”

Former President Donald Trump roasted the Biden regime for its failing immigration policies, which Trump blamed for the increasing deterioration of the border.
“TITLE 42 is saving what’s left of our Country,” Trump posted on Truth Social. Ending it, on top of our incredible, but now decimated, STAY IN MEXICO Policy, would greatly speed up the destruction of our Country. Both could have been put into the horrendous Mitch McConnell inspired ‘gift to the Democrats and China’ OMINOUS Bill.
“What a disaster this Administration, coupled with the almost as bad RINOS, is. JUST CAN’T GET ANY WORSE!” Trump wrote.
