Border Encounters Under Biden Reach an All-Time-High, Again
‘Because I’m a nice guy’: Biden says he ‘should be flattered’ by migration surge at southern border
The number of migrants encountered attempting to enter the United States illegally from Mexico rose in May, surpassing all previous records over the past century, an indication of the scale of the illegal immigration crisis at the border.
U.S. border officials intercepted 239,416 migrants attempting to enter the country illegally last month, the fourth consecutive monthly rise, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. In the first 16 full months of President Joe Biden’s term in office, federal law enforcement officials at the southern border have stopped noncitizens attempting to cross into the U.S. without permission 2.975 million times, including migrants denied admission at ports of entry, CBP data show.
