Biden Administration breaks all-time record for Illegal Alien Encounters at the Southern Border

President Joe Biden’s administration broke the all-time record for the number of illegal aliens encountered on the U.S.-Mexico border last month, according to newly released numbers.

Late Friday night, the administration published the numbers in an attempt to get less attention for the story of over a quarter million encounters.

The highest ever number of illegal aliens encountered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection in U.S. History was 251,487 last month.

Last month’s numbers, combined with the first two months of fiscal year 2023 — October and November — put the U.S. on track to have more than 2.87 million illegal alien encounters on the U.S. southern border this year.

December’s numbers mean that the Biden administration has now experienced ten straight months of 200,000+ illegal alien encounters per month on the southern border.

“A reminder, there have been approximately 1.2 million known gotaways at the southern border since President Biden took office,”Fox News reporter Bill Melugin tweets “The last several months have been around 70,000 per month, per CBP sources.”

“And those are only the *known* gotaways,”Melugin has been added.

Chad Wolf (the former Acting Secretary of Department of Homeland Security) slammed these numbers in a Twitter. “The insanity, insecurity, and chaos continues,”Wolf stated. “This admin has abolished any pretense of border security.”

Kevin McCarthy (R, CA) stated that Biden was responsible directly for the crisis at South Border.

“It’s no coincidence—Biden was sworn in 2 years ago today,”McCarthy spoke. “His policies have opened our border to more illegal crossings, more terrorism suspects, and more deadly fentanyl.”

The latest numbers from Biden’s border crisis are likely to turn up pressure on DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who had articles of impeachment filed against him last week.

“Since day one, Secretary Mayorkas’ policies have undermined law enforcement activities at our southern border,”  Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) said. “From perjuring himself before Congress about maintaining operational control of the border to the infamous ‘whip-gate’ slander against our border patrol agents, Secretary Mayorkas has proven time and time again that he is unfit to lead the Department of Homeland Security.”

“His willful actions have eroded our immigration system, undermined border patrol morale, and jeopardized American national security. He has violated the law and it is time for him to go,”Fallon was also added.
