Biden’s Border Crisis is the Worst in CBP History

Joe Biden and House Democrats’ open borders, mass releases, and zero enforcement policies have created the worst border crisis on CBP record. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data, there were 234,088 illegal crossings of our southern border in April alone, the worst month in CBP history. This is a 30% increase from 2021 and OVER a 1,200% increase from 2020.

BIDEN’S BORDER CRISIS BY THE NUMBERS:

  • Since Biden took office, OVER 2.6 MILLION illegal immigrants have been apprehended at our southern border.
  • According to new CBP data, there were 234,088 migrant encounters at our southern border in April.
    • That’s the highest in U.S. history for one month.
    • That is up 30% from April 2021
    • That is a 1,268% increase from 2020.
    • 117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April.
    • 113,248 were expelled, the majority of which were under Title 42.
    • April was the 14th straight month of encounters OVER 150,000.
  • These staggering numbers come as the Biden administration plans to lift Title 42 in just one week, a decision that will only worsen the historic border crisis.
    • A federal judge temporarily blocked President Biden’s repeal of Title 42 last month and is expected to rule on the repeal any day.
    • According to a Morning Consults poll, the majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s upcoming repeal of Title 42.
  • The Biden administration is putting America LAST by shipping pallets of baby formula to the southern border even as American families struggle with empty shelves.
  • 42 people on the Terrorist Screening Database have been apprehended attempting to illegally enter the U.S. since Joe Biden was sworn in.
  • A new report shows drug overdoses, mostly from opioids, hit an all-time high in 2021 of OVER 100,000.
    • To date, CBP has seized 340,000 pounds of drugs in FY22. This includes 5,300 pounds of fentanyl, enough to kill 2.4 billion people.
  • Border Patrol and Secretary Mayorkas have confirmed that over 700,000 known “got aways” have evaded CBP apprehension at the southern border since Biden took office.

BOTTOM LINE: This is an invasion. A country without secure borders is not a country. Border security IS national security.
