The recent news that more than a quarter-million illegal immigrants were encountered at the southern border in December 2022 has raised serious concerns about the effectiveness of current immigration policies.
This marks the highest number of single-month apprehensions on record, surpassing the previous record of 241,136 in May 2022, also during the Biden administration.
This alarming trend is further compounded by the fact that in the fiscal year 2022, a total of 2.4 million encounters were recorded, setting yet another record for the most encounters in a single year.
It is important to note that these numbers only reflect the individuals that were caught by Customs and Border Protection. It does not account for the individuals who were able to evade capture, which is EXTREMELY concerning.
Joe and Kamala both continue to ignore the issue.
