Record 188k Illegals Arrested and Turned Back at Southern Border in June

The border crisis continues to proceed exactly as one would expect from an administration doing nothing to stop it, suffering its worst month in June.

According to Just the News:

Federal border patrol agents last month arrested or denied entrance to 188,800 immigrants – the highest monthly total at the southern U.S. border in roughly a decade, according to a news report. 

The number is being reported by CNN and based on what the news outlet says is a Department of Homeland Security official familiar with the figures and to previously published data.

The number last month compares to 180,034 in May, bringing the fiscal year total so far to more than 1 million Customs and Border Protection encounters. 

The number of immigrants trying to enter the country at the U.S.-Mexico border has increased since May 2020, when roughly 23,000 people were encountered by Customs and Border Protection. This June was the highest monthly number since President Biden took office.

As is now evident, Kamala Harris telling illegals “do not come” after months of failing to address the problem proved useless.

The Biden administration has only blamed poverty in Central America (which existed prior to their administration) and the Trump administration for the crisis.  If there are any specific Trump-era policies they’re blaming, we haven’t been informed of what they are. Perhaps Biden immediately rescinding most of those policies upon taking office is a more likely culprit.
