Migrants from all over world cross southern border in record numbers

Migration to the southern border of the United States from far-off countries spiked in 2021 as economic turmoil and the Biden administration’s eased immigration policies prompted droves from other continents to traverse to America.

The number of people encountered at the southern border from countries other than Mexico or the three top countries of origin in Central America was seven times greater over the past 12 months ending in September than the previous year, according to data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection. One-in-5 people, or 378,000 of the 1.7 million, who were encountered at the southern border in the government’s fiscal year 2021 were from nations other than those four.

The biggest change in 2021 was the rise in arrivals from South America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. In 2000, 97% of the migrants Border Patrol encountered were Mexican citizens. By 2014, more people apprehended at the southern border were from the Northern Triangle — El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras — than were from Mexico, data show. In 2019, nearly two-thirds of people encountered at the border were from one of the three Northern Triangle nations.

In 2021, more than 4,100 Russians were encountered compared to fewer than 500 the previous year. Apprehensions have spiked further in October, with more than 1,500 Russian citizens apprehended.

More than 48,000 Venezuelans were intercepted at the border in 2021, up from fewer than 2,800 in 2020.

While the Border Patrol historically has encountered small numbers of people from more than 100 nations every year, the number from some of those countries are rising significantly, as are the numbers of countries. Border Patrol agents in Del Rio, Texas, announced this week arrests of people from around the world, including Eritrea, Uzbekistan, Syria, and Lebanon.

“They seem to be coming primarily to take advantage of a better economic situation in the United States,” said retired federal immigration judge Andrew Arthur.

“Some potential migrants are choosing the US for economic reasons. There is very high demand for some kinds of labor in the US right now, at a time when jobs remain hollowed out in several key Latin American countries,” Clemens wrote. “That push and pull, in the presence of extremely restricted channels for regular migration, is a recipe for high irregular migration pressure.”

Arthur pointed to the Biden administration’s handling of the border over the past 11 months as another leading reason people from all over the world have chosen to migrate to the U.S.

“People view this as the time to come to the United States,” said Arthur, resident fellow in law and policy for the conservative Center for Immigration Studies. “The Biden administration undid many of the policies that President Trump had. … They really haven’t substituted those for any that would impede people from coming to the United States.”

For example, the Biden administration rescinded the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols, known as the Remain in Mexico program. Under the program, asylum-seekers who crossed the border illegally or presented at a port of entry would have to remain outside the U.S. for months while their claims were processed. The program was rolled out to deter people who would otherwise make an asylum claim and be released into the U.S. The Biden administration was forced by the Supreme Court over the summer to restart the program and is in the process of reimplementing it while also trying to end it through a process that will hold up in court.
