(RightIsRight.co) – Breaking every record, the United States Border Patrol reports that since October 1st, the start of the federal fiscal year, more than 1 million illegal aliens have already swarmed across the Southern Border.
This surge surpasses last year’s count by around 100,000 as Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sources revealed to Fox News. Among these, Chinese migrants stand out with their numbers skyrocketing to become the fastest-growing group trying to enter the U.S.
By the end of the last fiscal year, over 37,000 Chinese migrants were detained. Since this October, about 20,000 have been caught, averaging about 150 per day. The influx of migrants kept rising, with December witnessing a record-breaking 302,000 encounters, the first month ever to exceed 300,000.
Last year’s total saw 2.5 million migrants apprehended, trying to cross into the U.S. from the south. Additionally, since October 1, over 96,000 “known gotaways” — migrants detected but not captured — have crossed into the U.S.
Texas has been actively sending at least 100,000 migrants to sanctuary cities like New York City, Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. These cities are now grappling with the challenge of accommodating them. New York City, in particular, is struggling to support nearly 175,000 migrants who arrived in spring 2022. In one incident, a group of migrants was arrested and then released after allegedly assaulting NYPD officers near Times Square.
Denver is currently removing 800 families from already full shelters. Meanwhile, political efforts to address the border crisis faced a setback when a bipartisan border deal collapsed in the Senate, losing Republican support partly due to criticism from former President Donald Trump. Trump talked about the deal on Truth Social, calling it a “ridiculous” trap for Republicans and urging, “Don’t be STUPID!”
