Illegal Immigration Numbers Sky High in June

“We are in the hottest part of the summer, and we are seeing a high number of distress calls to CBP from migrants abandoned in treacherous terrain by smugglers with no regard for human life."

(Headline USA) The crisis at the southern border has gotten increasingly worse since President Joe Biden took office, and the latest federal data does not bode well.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection released new data showing that CBP agents encountered 188,829 people trying to illegally enter the country last month.

The new data marks an increase from the previous month and nearly double the figures earlier this year.

“We are in the hottest part of the summer, and we are seeing a high number of distress calls to CBP from migrants abandoned in treacherous terrain by smugglers with no regard for human life,” said CBP Acting Commissioner Troy Miller.

“Although CBP does everything it can to locate and rescue individuals who are lost or distressed, the bottom line is this: the terrain along the border is extreme, the summer heat is severe, and the miles of desert migrants must hike after crossing the border in many areas are unforgiving,” he added.

Encounters with unaccompanied children increased to 15,253 which is 8 percent higher than the previous month.

Most expelled illegal immigrants are rejected based on Title 42, a Trump-era policy that allowed for that expulsion as a measure to prevent the spread of COVID into the nation.

“Single adults continue to make up the majority of these encounters; however, the number of single adults declined three percent from May to June,” CBP said. “Last month, CBP expelled 104,907 individuals under Title 42. CBP continues to expel single adults and family units that are encountered pursuant to CDC guidance under Title 42 authority. The majority of all June encounters resulted in a Title 42 expulsion.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Texas Governor Greg Abbott visited the border Saturday to address the crisis and blasted the Biden administration for not doing more to stop the flow of illegal immigration.

“While in Texas, Governor DeSantis also met with Governor Abbott for a tour and to receive a briefing on the rise in crime and drug trafficking that Texas is experiencing because of the Biden Administration’s failed border policies,” DeSantis’ office said in a statement. “At the briefing, Governor DeSantis announced that the Florida National Guard will remain in Texas to provide additional support at the border until October 2022.”
