Within the nine southwest Border Patrol sectors from California to Texas, apprehensions of illegals aren’t the highest they’ve been in decades, they’re the highest they’ve been ever.

According to Breitbart:

With less than 48 hours left in Fiscal Year 2021, Border Patrol has already surpassed the total number of migrant apprehensions made in any year along the southwest border since the agency’s inception in 1924. A source within Customs and Border Protection notes the unofficial apprehension record shows more than 1,646,000 for the year as of Wednesday.

The total reflects arrests made within the nine southwest Border Patrol Sectors from California to Texas. According to CBP, the previous record stood since 2000 when 1,643,679 were arrested. The source says the final apprehension number will increase by at least 10,000 when the fiscal year officially closes on September 30 and is reported near mid-October.

In the face of this crisis, all unvaccinated Border Patrol agents are set to be fired absent any intervention from the courts, which will further reduce the force’s manpower in the face of a growing crisis.

And despite all that, rather than make any attempt to boost Border Patrol’s capabilities, the Biden administration has instead focused attention on pushing debunked narratives about agents “whipping” migrants, and continued pushing them and threatening consequences after the story was discredited and corrected/retracted by many publications.

It comes in stark contrast to Biden’s claimed stance on border security during most of his time in office.

During a speech back in 2007 while on the campaign trail, Biden said that “no great country can say it is secure without being able to control its borders. Period.” Biden added that what he’d do about control at the border is what he’d been proposing for the past thirteen years before that, “radically” ramping up the number of border patrol agents, increasing the use of electronic surveillance, and increasing the number of virtual fences.

So either Biden knows what he’s doing and has simply decided that mass illegal immigration is better for his party in the long-run, or his handlers are in control.
