CBP records highest EVER annual number of migrants crossing southern border illegally – 2.37m – and that doesn’t include the ones that got away!

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has released data detailing the numbers of migrants crossing the southern border which are now at the highest level in Department of Homeland Security history. According to data collected by the CBP there were 227,547 ‘migrant encounters’. It means for the Fiscal Year ending September 30th, there was a total of 2,378,944 encounters. The figures only include those who were dealt with by Border Patrol officers and not countless others that manage to evade capture. By comparison there were 192,001 crossings in September 2001, 57,674 in September 2020 and 52,546 in September 2019 when then-President Trump had his own surge at the border.

  • In total, there were 227,547 encounters along the southwest land border in September, a 12 percent increase compared to August
  • By comparison there were 192,001 crossings in 2001, 57,674 in 2020 and 52, 546 in 2019 when then-President Trump had his own surge at the border 
  • It means for the Fiscal Year ending September 30th, there was a total of 2,378,944 encounters 
  • That far exceeded last year’s record of more than 1.7 million arrests
  • A large number of individuals fleeing failing authoritarian regimes in Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba is contributing to increased numbers crossing the border

America has broken its record for the highest number of illegal immigrants intercepted at the border in a single month and a single year.

Customs and Border Patrol figures released late Friday night revealed there were  227,547 ‘migrant encounters’ last month alone.

And for the fiscal year ending in September 2022, there were a total of  2,378,944 illegal immigrants intercepted – the highest for any year ever.

In 2021, there were 1.734 million crossers intercepted for the whole of the financial year, with 458,000 intercepted throughout 2020, and 978,000 in 2019.

COVID border closures helped lower the figures during Donald Trump’s final year of office, although Friday’s numbers will deal a hammer blow to Joe Biden’s midterm hopes.

By comparison for the month of September over the last four years there were 192,001 crossings in 2021, 57,674 in 2020 and 52,546 in September 2019.

The large number of individuals is largely driven by those failing authoritarian regimes in Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba.

Illegal immigrants taken into custody after crossing the border unlawfully are, in a majority of cases, released into the U.S.

President Biden and Vice President Harris have been blamed for exacerbating the problem by presenting what has been seen as a softer-touch on illegal immigration.

They also sought to end Title 42, a COVID-era policy enacted by the Trump administration that immediately expelled migrants caught crossing into the US.

This year, Texas Governor Greg Abbott has begun bussing migrants to sanctuary cities that claim to welcome migrants, including New York, Chicago and Washington DC.

He and other GOP leaders, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and Arizona Governor Greg Ducey, say they want to give those Democrat-run cities a taste of what life is like along the southern border.

Federal authorities arrested more than 2.493 million immigrants during the 2022 fiscal year. That far exceeded last year’s record of more than 1.7 million arrests.

Despite the record-breaking figures, the CBP attempted to place positive spin on the numbers by focusing on the large drop of Venezuelans crossing the border.
