(GoRealNewsNow.com) – In a striking development, Joe Biden’s administration is facing increasingly intense scrutiny over the border crisis Biden created, as new figures from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveal a record-breaking number of illegal alien encounters.
Last month, federal agents encountered 302,034 illegal aliens, the highest number ever recorded, surpassing Biden’s previous record of 269,735 set in September 2023.
This alarming statistic included the arrest of at least 19 individuals on the terrorist watchlist.
The timing of the data release, late on a Friday evening, has been criticized as an attempt by the Biden administration to minimize public awareness of the issue.
This surge in illegal border crossings under Biden’s watch is so significant that the number for just last month nearly matches the total for the entire 2017 fiscal year, when 303,916 illegal aliens were apprehended.
The enormity of last month’s figure is such that it rivals or exceeds the populations of several major U.S. cities, including Orlando, Newark, and Pittsburgh, illustrating the scale of the crisis.
Chad Wolf, former Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary, condemned these numbers as evidence of Biden’s intentional negligence.
“Today’s historical border numbers confirm what we already know,” Wolf stated. “The Biden Admin is not using existing authority to secure the border. This continues to be a crisis by design, it’s overwhelming Border Patrol, and overrunning American communities.”
Amid this escalating situation, the Biden administration is currently embroiled in legal battles with Texas. Governor Greg Abbott has been assertive in his efforts to address what is increasingly referred to as an “invasion” into his state.
House Speaker Mike Johnson, in response to these developments, expressed strong support for the impeachment efforts against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, spearheaded by House Republicans.
Johnson emphasized the gravity of the situation, saying, “Our border is wide open and the Biden administration is to blame. I fully support @HomelandGOP’s impeachment efforts and I look forward to seeing Secretary Mayorkas held accountable for this catastrophe.”
