A Record 2 Million Migrants are Apprehended at Southwestern Border In 2022

According to Bob Price of Breitbart News, Border Patrol agents have apprehended roughly two million migrants who illegally entered the southwest border between ports of entry thus far in the current fiscal year.

There’s one month remaining this year that has already set records. 

Per a August Southwest Land Border Encounters report published on September 19, 2022, agents operating in the 9 southwest border sectors caught 

1,997,769 migrants during the first 11 months of Fiscal Year 2022. August is the fifth consecutive month where apprehensions surpassed the 180,000 migrant mark.

“Failing communist regimes in Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba are driving a new wave of migration across the Western Hemisphere, including the recent increase in encounters at the southwest U.S. border,” CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus declared in a written statement, in order to cast blame on external actors as opposed to Biden regime policies that have created this disaster. “Our dedicated teams of skilled agents continue to work around the clock to secure our border and safely and humanely process and vet every individual encountered, but those fleeing repressive regimes pose significant challenges for processing and removal.” 

CBP officials confirmed a 175% increase in the apprehension of migrants from Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. Officials claimed that the number of apprehensions from these three countries were around 55,333. Apprehensions from Mexico and the Northern Triangle countries stood at 56,979.

The surge in Venezuelan migrants has come about as a result of the Venezuelan government emptying out its prisons and dumping inmates — even violent criminals — in the US, per a report by Randy Clark. 

“The intelligence report warns agents the freed prisoners have been seen within migrant caravans traveling from Tapachula, Mexico toward the U.S.-Mexico border as recently as July,” Clark stated. “The report does not state whether the released prison inmates were traveling as a cohesive group but does state it was commonly shared knowledge among migrants traveling to the United States within a caravan in July that many of the Venezuelan migrants in the group were convicts and included hardened criminals.”

The apprehension of the almost two million migrants during the first 11 months of the current fiscal year marks an increase of 20% over the fiscal year of 2021. In that year, border patrol agents apprehended 1.6 million migrants, which was a record at the time.

“More individuals encountered at the border without a legal basis to remain will be expelled or removed this year than any prior year,” Commissioner Magnus concluded. 

The immigration crisis is not going away. Both parties in DC know what they’re doing with regards to mass migration. On one hand, Democrats are using migrants to elect a new people.  On the other, the Republican Party elite wants a never-ending source of cheap labor

Cheap labor, cheap votes. That’s the uniparty way.  

The only way this nation-destroying policy will end is through the decisive election of an America First faction to Congress. 

It’s the only political movement willing to make the hard call and fight to preserve the Historic American Nation.
