Biden’s Border Crisis Hit a New Fiscal Year Record

President Biden’s historic border crisis is only getting worse. In September, there were 227,547 illegal crossings of our southern border—ending Fiscal Year 2022 with a new U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) record of over 2.37 MILLION illegal crossings.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Joe Biden and House Democrats’ open-border policies have created an invasion at our southern border. The American people have seen enough. When House Republicans earn the majority, we will secure our southern border and end the reckless policies that have left it wide open.

    • There have now been 19 straight months of OVER 150,000 illegal border crossings.         
    • 98 individuals on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB) were apprehended at the southern border in Fiscal Year 2022—more than the previous five years combined. 20 of these encounters were just in the last month.
  • There have now been OVER 14,000 pounds of poisonous fentanyl seized this fiscal year alone—a fiscal year record.
  • In August, Joe Biden and his administration decided to make the border crisis WORSE by formally ending former President Trump’s successful ‘Remain in Mexico’ program.
