Border Crisis Worse Than Expected, Over One Million Crossed Since January

1574

In June, Homeland Security officials captured more than178,000 immigrants across the US-Mexico border, the most in a month before March. So far this financial year, 1,076,242 immigrants have been caught, due to an increase in arrests.

As per the June Southwest Physical Border Interactions report published by CBP authorities on Friday, Border Agents intercepted 178, 416 immigrants during June, a 5,789 rise over the previous month.

The subcategories of Family Groups and Unsupervised Minors saw a 25% and 8% increase in arrests, correspondingly. Arrests of single adults decreased by 4,537.


Immigrant rescues have increased considerably this year, as a result of the high temperature and other perilous trafficking conditions, according to CBP.

Migrant rescues totaled 9,500 in the first 9 months of this financial year (October to June). According to authorities, this implies an 81 percent growth throughout the full Fiscal Year 2020.

The Trip Poses Many Dangers to Prospective Migrants

We’re in the warmest portion of the year; CBP inspectors are getting a lot of panic calls from immigrants who have been dumped in dangerous terrain by traffickers who don’t care about human life, according to CBP Acting Director Troy Miller in a formal report.

The bottom line is this: the topography along the frontier is rough, the hot weather is intense, and the kilometers of deserts immigrants must travel after trying to cross the border in so many parts are dangerous.

Mostly during the month of June, CBP authorities deported approximately 105,000 immigrants to Mexico, using Title 42 coronavirus protection laws implemented by the Centers for Disease and Prevention during the Trump administration. According to CBP officers, the bulk of all June interactions culminated in a Title 42 deportation.

However, according to Edwin Mora of Breitbart News, the Biden government may stop the initiative in July. As per a report by Axios, President Biden has also been informed on a strategy to terminate family deportations by the end of July, as well as the possibility of allowing a judge to end it.

In June, Director of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayoras officially stopped the Trump government’s Migrant Protection Program, which effectively ended the previous administration’s Capture and Returns policies.


According to the study, DHS personnel processed over 12,000 persons into the United States in June who’d been deported to Mexico through MPP.

Texas Accounts for the Most Crossings

So far this financial year, officers in the five Texas-based Homeland Security sectors have caught more than 730,000 people. 

As per show signs on Friday in the United States Customs and Immigration Southwestern Land Border Encounter Report, Border Agents deployed to the five Texas-based sectors intercepted 732,573 immigrants in the first nine months of Fiscal Year 2021.

This is up over 155,246 arrested in the same time period of the previous year, an almost 372 percent rise. Of course, Biden has no plans to reinstate Trump’s policies.
