Border Patrol uncovers terrifying reality in bombshell report

The southern border is a mess. And there’s only one man to blame for it.

Now Border Patrol uncovered a terrifying reality in a bombshell report.

According to a Fox News study, about 7.3 million people have unlawfully crossed the southwest border under President Biden’s watch, which is more than the population of 36 states.

This figure comes from US Customs and Border Protection, which has already reported 961,537 border crossings in the current fiscal year, which runs from October to September.

If the present rate of illegal immigration does not drop, fiscal year 2024 would surpass last year’s record of 2,475,669 southwest border contacts – a figure that alone exceeds the population of New Mexico, a border state.

The overall number of southwest land border interactions since Biden took office in 2021 is 7,298,486, according to CBP data.

This is more than the population of 36 US states, including Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

In comparison to the greatest US states, the 7.3 million figure represents around 18.7% of California’s 39 million population, 23.9% of Texas’ 31 million citizens, 32.3% of Florida’s population, and 37.3% of New York. It is over half the size of Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Ohio.

If the number of illegal immigrants who entered the United States under President Biden were gathered together to form a city, it would be the second-largest in America behind New York.

And the figure does not include an estimated 1.8 million known “gotaways” who eluded law enforcement, making it larger than New York.

During the Biden administration, approximately 10 million migrants entered the United States illegally, a number that Biden’s detractors argue could only have been accomplished by willfully refusing to enforce the law.

“This unprecedented surge in illegal immigration isn’t an accident. It is the result of deliberate policy choices by the Biden administration,” said Eric Ruark, Director of Research for Numbers USA, a nonprofit that advocates for immigration restrictions.

The Department of Homeland Security did not respond to a request for information.

Republicans and anti-illegal immigration activists have long blamed Biden for facilitating the current massive influx of migrants by rolling back former President Donald Trump’s border restrictions.

The Biden administration has rejected responsibility for the issue, citing external “push” causes such as violence and economic instability in South and Central America as the cause of massive migration to the United States.

However, the president’s detractors argue that migrants face more of a “pull” factor in the form of work possibilities and government benefits because they are confident they will not be deported under Biden’s permissive policies.

“The administration has refused to enforce existing immigration law and taken every opportunity to aid and abet illegal border crossings — through policies such as catch-and-release, mass parole, and offering temporary work permits to tens of thousands of foreigners who make dubious claims for asylum,” Ruark told Fox News Digital.

“In actual effect, the United States government is completing the human smuggling and trafficking process for the Mexican cartels.”

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), said migrants have learned in the previous three years that they will not be deported if they enter the nation illegally.

“They have sent the signal that if you come to the US illegally, if you abuse the asylum system, you’ll be released into the country and allowed to remain here, in most cases given work authorization,” Mehlman said. “Even if you neglect to show up for your hearings, the odds of you being removed are negligible. The president claims he doesn’t have the authority to enforce our laws. He absolutely does. He is deliberately not enforcing those laws.”
